Question about Whynter FX-6SB Free Standing Hot & Cold Water Dispenser with Storage, Microcomputer-controlled LED D

6 Answers

Sunbeam water dispenser Model YLR2-5-90HZ3 Ser# 2003 0406928 cold and hot settings on 4 After 24 hours with a 5 gal water bottle placed on this hot/cold dispenser, I woke up to find water all over the garage floor. Apparently the water boiled over (perhaps bad thermostat?) and came out of the top of the unit from around the bottle. Anyone experience this problem?

    I have the Sunbeam cooler hot and cold. Can you shut off the hot water side so you just have the cold.

    Same problem. Sprung a leak. Called Sumbeam and they dont make make or sell the dispenser anymore. Called a couple repair shops they sa throw it out its a piece of poo and not worth fixing. warantee is over by six months so cant get my money back. You can guess where im going with this. Sunbeam is zero in my books.

Same problem which melted the seal plate causing the leak. Thought it was the thermostats not shutting off the heat, but the heat was coming up through the overflow pipe and into the bowl. Talked with Elite Group in Montreal and they suggest draining out the system with the drain plug in the back of the unit, then try again. They say the steam has no where to go if the overflow pipe is full.

Sunbeam hot/cold water dispenser is leaking from looks like copper tubing that goes to tank. Model # ylr-5-87h3 what could my problem be


Broken solder connection.
Continual expansion and contraction of metal due to hot and cold extremes will cause metal fatigue. The most vulnerable place is at the join. Other places can fail, but usually the solder join will fail first.
Buy another one and support economy.
Make sure next unit is connected to cold water line, and not hot water line. If hot water dispenser is connected to Hot line, then it will cause water heater to run each time water is drawn through dispenser because cold water immediately enters tank.

You might also consider installing small tank under counter. Tanks are less glamorous than hot water dispensers but tanks are more reliable long term than instantaneous water heaters.

Hot/cold water dispenser. Why is cold indicator blinking and no cold water dispensed?


We typically service Hoshizaki, but you may not be getting water into the resivior. Depending on model, you may need to remove bottle and probe and check the silicone seal, reseal and re attach. Also be sure that hoses are connected and fully pushed into the connectors. And of course make sure you have a water supply. Could take up to an hour for water to re chill again. Hope this helps.

The plastic handles that dispense the water are broken


Where can I buy the spigets for a Sunbeam water cooler. I need one for hot and one for cold water. These handles are not strong enough plastic to last the lifetime of the unit. They should be made from metal. If the taps on our kitchen sink was made from plastic you can imagine how long they would last.

Model YLR2-5-90HZ3 cold/hot/water dispnser with fridge won't heat


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.
