1. Hot & Cold switch on back do they both have to be turn on or can you just turn on one or the other? 2. The storage below is it just storage or should it too be cold (refrigerated)? 3. Put bottle of water on and the taste is bad, what can I do to improve that problem? Thanking you in advance, I am Ron Provance
Asked by: Ronald
1. Both switches are located in the back. I can turn off hot is I wanted too. 2. Just storage below, however looks like the inside of a refrigerator. 3. Change the brand of water you use.

changing bottles?

do you have to pull the entire cap off the new bottle when loading it or does this machine have the feature that punctures the top of the bottle (you just have to pull the center sticker off the new bottle) when loading?

Can I use any bottle?

Asked by: Mike
We bought ours about 2 weeks ago and have used several different bottles and cups, hot and cold, with no problems. The BIG cups we fill with HOT water, I try to be very careful to hit the opening but it really is no problem, just me being extra careful.

Customer Reviews

Top Loading Hot and Cold Water Dispenser with Storage Cabinet is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good water dispenser, we are pleased with it. So far so good. I have had this water dispenser for about a month now and we haven't experienced any problems. I like that it is small, I also like the separate hot and water power switches in the back. We haven't really used the little cabinet for anything yet, but, my daughter might start storing her teas in it. I really like the 90 day return on this. Hopefully we wont need to use it, but, I am keeping my box and receipts for just in case. Other than all that, we are happy with it and it works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst purchase ever we ordered this cooler on line and it was delivered in the right amount of time.......once we plugged it in the headache began. we ran water thru it to rinse it out. we put a water bottle on and hoped to enjoy our water. there is a horrible taste that we cannot get rid of. we tried bleach. we tried vinegar. we made countless calls to customer service. we wasted gallons of water trying to rinse this thing out. I don't know what the heck this horrible taste is coming from but we cannot get rid of it. finally the company says they are sending a new one. I sure hope we dont have the same problem. DO NOT BUY THIS WATER COOLER

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad taste for the first 5 gals For the first 5gal Jug it tasted terrible, don't know what chemicals and or reason for this would be but darn, had to run about a whole 5 gallon jug through it before it tasted even remotely like bottled water. Not impressed at first but I guess it'll get better I hope. Price was good. I think they should flush them better before sending them out REALLY!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better Purchased the same machine twice. The first time it malfunctioned it was my fault I didn't read the directions and plugged it in prior to loading the water. (BIG MISTAKE). Ruined the machine and I smelled burning plastic. The second machine works OK. The hot water is instantaneous which I love for my tea. The cold water does not get very cold. Slightly colder than room temp but not as cold as the fridge. After about 65 days water began to leak from the bottom onto the floor causing a big mess.I was able to return it but a bit disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought the water cooler for my home office and it works really well. The buttons are easy to push and the bottom cabinet is useful for holding cups.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WATER COOLER I bought this cooler because it seemed a good deal for the money. It does work as intended except the cool side could be a little colder. The hot side works well enough for my wife to have a hot cup of instant coffee each morning. The down side is the factory must put some sort of protectant on the inside of the cooler to protect its internal parts while in storage. I followed the manufacturers instructions in cleaning the unit followed by running 12 gallons of water through the unit to flush it, but the rubbery/plastic taste remains. However, the bad taste seems to be slowing going away as time goes on. I expect it will eventually go away, but when? I read numerous reviews with complaints about this problem from many brands so it seems to be a common problem. The manufacturers have to be aware of this problem but are apparently unconcerned. I will not recommend this product until such time as the fix this problem. Other than the taste problem the unit works as intended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product... I wanted another water dispenser other than Primo brand. The product arrived fast, we have no issues with taking it out of the box and set-up. I love the extra storage space under the dispenser. There is a slight noise when the water is heating up, however it doesn't bother us. The price was great. I would recommend.
