does the unit come with only cold water no heater only refridgeration?

Asked by: highlander
The unit is designed to do both. Following are the instructions for the HOT water part of the unit: □□ Press the red kettle feature button (B). The red light will begin flashing. □□ In less than 3 minutes, the red light will stay on, indicating that the hot water is ready for dispensing. □□ Place a glass under the spigot (J). □□ Press the child resistant safety button (D) and hold. □□ Press the hot water button (E) until the desired amount of water is dispensed. To prevent hot water from being dispensed accidentally and possibly harming a child, the hot water dispensing button can only be operated when the child resistant safety button (D) is activated. □□ Upon releasing the hot water button (E), the child safety lock automatically returns to the locked position. □□ To stop/cancel the kettle feature during a cycle, simply press the kettle feature button (B) a second time and the red LED light will stop flashing. This information was taken from the Use and Care Manual. Hope this helps.

Customer Reviews

Bottom Load Water Dispenser in Stainless Steel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, easy to use, no more bottles to waste and energy efficient, perfect Got it shipped fast, well packaged, easy to take out, very light to handle. Once unpack-aged it looks great, no fingerprints on the stainless steel. We really like the feature that it gives you not only cold or hot water, it also gives you room temperature water so no more mixing the water to get the room temp. Another great feature is that it can hold 3 gallon bottles as well, since the 5 and 4 are kind of heavy for my family to carry. In the back there is an adjustment for the temp of the water so it comes complete. We do not like to waste a bunch of bottles so this is the best solution and the dispenser looks great. Overall great quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Water Dispenser! We purchased this about 2 weeks ago. We had a top loading cooler for years. It is great not to see that big water bottle on top. I can now load the bottle myself. Could never pick up the bottle on our old one. The water comes out cold and the flow comes out pretty fast. The hot water takes about 3 minutes to watm up but when finished it is very hot. There is a light that lets you know when the bottle is empty. There is a blue light that reads "Glacier Bay and the blue light that stays on when the water is finished cooling. At night these lights light up the whole room. I like my house completely dark at night so this is a little annoying. Other than than I am completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dispenser Out of the box, this dispenser requires no assembly, simply plug into the wall receptacle, place the water bottle in and it gets to work. The appearance is very stylish and it blends-in well with black OR stainless appliances. Compared to a top loading mechanism, this dispenser does not overwhelm the space since the bottle stays hidden in the bottom cabinet; in fact it complements the decor. This is what I Iove the most about its appearance. 2nd, the loading process itself is very easy on my body as I do not have to do any lifting and flipping of the bottles. The bottle slides in and metal pump draws the water when it needs. Operation is simple with its dedicated hot and cold buttons with a safety feature on the hot button so there is no accidental dispense by anyone. The thermostat in the back works well and adjusts the water temperature fairly quickly. For HOT setting, it draws only 1150W, with that it has no trouble running on a 15 amp circuit. With COLD setting, only 74W. I see it as a great fit for mid to large sized kitchens, reception area of small businesses & practices.

The cold button became stuck and one of the plastic "nubs" on the shaft that guides it broke off. It needs to be replaced. My unit is out of warranty. I called Home Depot customer service to order a new button. Home Depot called the company that manufactures the unit and then informed me that THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT PARTS of any kind for the unit. Of course, had it still be under warranty, it would have been replaced. Since it wasn't, the only solution is to trash it and buy another one. I find it hard to believe that a water dispenser costing over $200 became trash in a little over a year and that Home Depot knowingly sells a product that can't be repaired, only replaced. Note: The water cooler that the Glacier Bay replaced was 25+ years old and still going strong. Should have kept it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh It was good while it lasted, and that was a little over 1 year just enough for the factory warranty to expire. Another con is you have to take the whole door for bottle compartment with u to drain out the tray as it is attached to the door

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more flipping bottles. I've had several other top load water coolers and this one is 100% better. Very reasonable for the price and the features are all there. Low water indicator, and indicators for both the hot and cold temperatures. I like that it will not constantly heat water all the time, and allows you to press a button to heat the water, and then if not used for a while, will stop heating water. It only took a minute to heat back up, so about as long as I would wait for a microwave. I do wish it had a setting for how long to keep heating before it stops, but this feature saves electric and water from evaporation. The cold water cycles too, so this unit seems to be very thrifty on energy. It even has a room temperature water option if you don't need hot or cold water. The bottle feed tube is adjustable for different size bottles, but the cap does not actually clamp to the top of my brand of bottle, it just sits on the top, which is fine as it will not shift easily. The door is held on with magnets, so you don't need to worry about hinges opening the access door a specific direction and needing additional clearance, and inside the doorway is a door sensor to shut down the system when the door is open. I will say that I hate Glacier Bay manuals. I like to read my directions and these are all pictures that are not always easy to interpret. The manual must also be supplemented with a couple placards as the manual does not discuss how to adjust the tube length at all.

I was going to buy the standard top load water cooler for $98 when I spotted this one saying it was a bottom load. I splurged and bought the bottom load. Not having to muscle a 50-pound jug of water onto a top load cooler was worth the extra money. The dispensing buttons are much better than some of the old types where the handles break off. Water temperature control is set to about 40F. Hot water works ok also. The only negative is the long run times when in the cooling mode. When the unit turns on to cool the water it seems to run forever. It runs about 45 minutes or more when it cycles on. It is not too noisy but it is noticeable. We notice it as it sits within 5 or 6 feet from our easy chairs. We talked with the technical people about the long run times and they said it was normal and had no answer and said take it back if you are not happy with it. Of course that is always a hassle also. It seems this unit has a very small compressor for cooling as it is rated at only 75 watts when in cooling mode. This is about one tenth of a horse power compressor, which is very small. Most good sized refrigerators use about one third horse power compressors which would be about 7 times larger than the one in this cooler. It would be nice if they upgraded the compressor to shorten run times and the noise associated with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This seems to be a pretty good dispenser. The cold water is cold and the hot water comes out hot ... This seems to be a pretty good dispenser. The cold water is cold and the hot water comes out hot (after waiting for it to heat). I am not impressed by the door. It looks like it was designed to be hinged, but it is just stuck on the base with some magnets. The magnets are not very strong and it doesn't take much of a bump to knock off the door. I would expect this from a lesser-priced item and gave it 3 stars because the quality at this price gives only an "average" value.
