Warm to hot water from both sides (hot is turned off)
I have the heating unit turned off, the cold is on and both fans are operational. I removed the back panel and cleaned out the dust from the intake area, I have now cut away the cheesy plastic "grates" that cover the fans and replaced with a piece of furnace filter to better keep dust out while still allowing for air flow. However, with only the cooler on, I still get warm water from both sides?

Seriously, you want to sell me a service to fix my product. But if I already fixed it myself you want to know how? Free of charge? You know what, I did fix it, but no way in hell I am going to tell you.

turn the system of unplug and turn the machine upside down without the water bottle. There shud be 2 drain plugs underneath. remove one at a time and force water or air backwards thru these drains to ensure no obstacle in pipes. Also check inside that no pipes are bent closed so as to block water from flowing thru. It doesnt work via a pump but a simple gravity feed system. also the cooling works diferent to a normal fridge, doesnt have gas in it it cools by a heating element that cools on the one side and heats on the other side. Also check that ur fan on the cooling side is still running properly it shud turn of after a couple minutes and turn on when the water gets hot again.hope it helps.regards.viv
Check to see if the dispenser has an integral water filter. If yes, replace it to improve the taste of the water. If no, then unplug and remove the top panel and shut off the water supply line to the unit.
You'll want to drain the cooling tank and clean it with some white vinegar to remove any mineral deposits that could be affecting the taste of the water. You'll want to lightly scrub the inside of the chilling/cooling tank with a mixture of at least 2/3 white vinegar and warm water to help dissolve any residue in the tank.
After you've gotten it as clean as possible, turn on the water supply line and flush the tank by filling a pitcher from the cold water dispenser. Do this for at least 2-3 gallons of water to completely clear out the vinegar mixture.
You'll also want to remove and sanitize the dispenser valves on the front of the unit, as there could be some gunk inside the spout that is adding to the foul taste and odor.
I would also suggest you install an inline charcoal water filter to the supply line serving this cooler, as that will only help improve the taste and clarity of your drinking water.
You should be able to adjust the temp of the cold water with a thermostat controler located inside the cabinent. You might want to contat Hamilton Beach to obtain an owner's manual for your unit to get more detailed information about use and operation recommendations.
Hope you found this info very helpful and best regards!
Having same issue. Water cooler about a week old, in use in a small office with about 10 people and 2 5-gal water jugs consumed weekly.
The chiller for the cold water no longer works, and they display lights on the front and on/off switch in the back no longer light up. The hot water is working, I'm wondering if there is a potential recall issue with the unit.
I have the YLR2-5-96H2 and hot water stopped heating up. I unscrewed the casing and unplugged the connections to the circular heating element and 2 circular probes. Brushed off the white dust build up on the probes and it started to heat water again. I ruled out faulty heating element, because it got really hot just seconds after turning on the hot water switch.
next to the compresssor check for a solid copper obese tube, filter drier, touch this with your bare hands, and see if it is warm,if not the gas is not enough it being leaked from somewhere. Recharge the system with freon gas.
Sounds like the fans have stoped turning for the cooling system. If you cannot hear the fans turn on when you flip the COOL switch this is your problem. Pick the fans up at a computer parts store like Frys. Any other part failure on this unit other than a loose wire is not worth repairing. A little oil inside teh motor and several revolutions later might get some relief until a new motor is installed.
