you have to open it up and look where the water is dripping from. it could be from the rubber hoses that connects the tank to the faucets.
if it's on the hoses, that would be easy to replace, but sometimes the leak would come from the stainless tank whiich would be very hard to replace.

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!

I just put about six cups of white vinegar (not diluted) into the reservoir and let it sit for about an hour. Then I emptied that out and flushed a few pitchers of very hot water through. It seems to have worked quite well.
