I have that GE Smart Water Hot/Cold water cooler that seems to be leaking water. How can I get this fixed?

This is a stand alone water cooler that holds a 5 gallon water bottle for dispensing hot or cold water.

SOURCE: elec water heater no hot water

Check the breaker to see if the unit is getting power. You will need a voltage meter to check out the thermostat on the unit and also you will need to use it to check if the elements aren't blown. Sounds like the unit isn't getting power but could be the thermostat located under one of the panels on the side of the unit.

Will the water stay hot in the kitchen sink? Try to isolate the problem. If it is happening at all hot water locations, then it will be related to your water heater. If just in the shower then it is related to the mix of water ratio coming out of the shower hear. If its only the shower, then you are getting too much cold and not enough hot through the pipes. This can be very simple to fix by replacing the handle going to the shower. If this does not work then you may have a problem in the hot water pipes. After you isolate the problem, please post another question here.

Repair a cold water leak at the bottom of my water heater


Hi -

If your water heater is working (ie: making hot water) then most likely your heater isn't leaking. Rather, the leak is coming from the cold water supply and running down the tank where you see it at the bottom of the tank. A working tank that is leaking would produce a leak of hot water - not cold. You should carefully check the cold water piping for a leak, drip or stream of water and make the required repairs.

GE Water Cooler Cold Water does not come out, Why?


It works like a fridge or ac. When its charge gets low it can't cool. It will cycle on and off as freon goes around the circuit. Must be leaking around seals or crack in line. A good ac man could check its pressure to determine. Also, thermostat could be going bad, I would check that as well.

Whirlpool hot water heater puts out overly hot water


1) Make sure factory-supplied insulation and cover are reinstalled over thermostats, or cooler room temperature causes thermostat to under-approximate tank temperature, and this causes overly hot water.

2) Replace both thermostats.
Sticking thermostat can seem to act normally when tested, but when left alone it sticks, causing runaway overheating.

Water seems to be leaking from the top lid of my ge water heater


Make sure any water valves (Cold or Hot) for water heater are not leaking first. Gate valves may leak at the packing nut over time and drip on top of tank. If water is leaking from the top of the water heater itself the tank is corroded and water heater will need to be replaced.

Problem is i have a gravity fed system and yesterday connected a cold water line for an evaporative cooler to the cold water line coming of it. now there isnt any hot water


water will always find its own level and take the path of least resistance. if your hot water tank inlet is higher than the swamp cooler this may be your problem. you can try a line resrtiction at the cooler or a twelve volt rv pump with a battery and solar charger and an on off switch.know someone with this set up and it seems to work well.
