Why is our instant hot water leaking at the bottom of the faucet when we use it now? Tightening screw on the side did not help.

Hi Julie,
I had this problem when I first installed mine - I found that I didn't push the faucet part far enough into the base before tightening the screw. Try loosening the screw and pulling the facuet part out and look at the part that inserts into the base - there should be a rubber washer there and it shouldn't be torn damaged. If it looks OK, push it into the base as far as it will go and tighten

Hi Julie,
I had this problem when I first installed mine - I found that I didn't push the faucet part far enough into the base before tightening the screw. Try loosening the screw and pulling the facuet part out and look at the part that inserts into the base - there should be a rubber washer there and it shouldn't be torn damaged. If it looks OK, push it into the base as far as it will go and tighten the screw. Hope that works! If the rubber washer is damaged, try calling InSinkErator Customer Service to see if they have a solution for you.
Best,
Jason

Answer: 
I had a similar problem, and found that I had over-tightened the screw. Try backing off it a little bit at a time. Obviously, you still need the screw to trap the faucet stem in the valve, so you can't loosen it too much.
Be sure that you turn off water pressure before you play with the screw; if you fully loosen it with water pressure behind it, you might get a hot fountain of water in your face!

Answer: 
The set screw only holds the spout in place. If it is leaking, then loosen the set screw, pull the spout out and inspect the rubber seal at its base. Make sure the rubber seal is intact and set into the groove on the spout tube. If the rubber seal is damaged or missing, then replace it. (If missing, check inside the tank outlet--it may have come off during removal of the spout.)

Julle, I'm not sure what Hot Water Dispenser model you have. Home Depot shows a picture of the InSinkErator Hot1. If you do have that unit, it is unfortunate. As the manufacturer acknowledges it being their bottom line and with similar issues. They suggest upgrading to a better model. If it is still under warranty, they will trade it toward an upgrade.
If it is leaking when the handle is depressed, the valve stem or lever seals are damaged. If it leaks when heating water the valve O ring is damaged. Many of these units are non-serviceable.
During the early stages of the ' O ring leaking' problem it can be temporarily fixed by simply turning down the temperature. Resulting is less thermal expansion when the water heats and causes excessive pressure on the O ring seal. If it persists, the O ring (or reservoir) will damage and replacement of the unit is necessary. If it is under warranty, DO NOT disassemble it to inspect or attempt repair, but call to have it replaced.
If you have some other Hot Water Dispenser model, the symptoms and cure are relative. If you have to turn down the temperature below what any unit advertises being the standard delivery temperature of that model, to prevent the thermal expansion of the heated water from leaking, then the unit if defective and should be returned.
If you want to enjoy the convenience and luxury of instant Hot Water on Demand, you will pay a luxury price. You can either deal with buying a few lesser units or one quality unit. Shop for the best, it will be less expensive. I have installed, repaired, returned and replace close to a hundred heating units. I will now only install quality units. Saves my clients and myself a lot of time and money. Happy Shopping.

Answer: 
If this leak is on the sink side I would expect to find that the "O" ring that is at the end of the spout inside the mounting is worn, dried out or cracked. Loosen the set screw, remove the spout and install a new "O" ring and re-install.
If it leaks under the sink then I would suspect that the compression fitting is not tight enough.

As my original unit got older, the thermostat started to act up and steam/hot water would occasionally spurt out. Is this what's happening to yours?

Answer: 
My opinion is they make a lot of noise. Hissing, banging, wooshing, etc. Once it woke me up in the middle of the night. According to what I read in the instructions accompanying the product the noises are normal. If the unit is more than six years old then may be a concern regarding replacement. My first two units needed replaced after six years.

Charles - You may have an obstruction in your water supply or the inlet pressure is too low (under 30#). Disconnect the water supply and check the flow and pressure. If it is adequate, odds are the unit is defective. The manufacturer of this model acknowledges this unit is with issues. They will replace it toward an upgrade unit. Providing you DO NOT disassemble the unit to inspect or attempt repairs. Read More

Answer: 
There is actually no pressure in the heating tank. Opening the spout allows more cold water in which pushes hot water out through the spot. The noise you are hearing is the water boiling because the temperature was set too high at the tank. Turn down the temp a little and the noise should go away.

Answer: 
As far as I know, if the unit is new, you should hear the water coming to a boil periodically. Not sure about this model, but the multiple ISE larger models I have had eventually clog up and when trying to obtain water the unit re-routes and bypasses the normal outlet. They say you can take it apart and clean it, but in a few months it will probably start to leak.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Had to replace unit three times in four years. We are on third Hot1 unit. Keeps breaking. We buy replacements only because it fits into the space under our sink. When it works, we like it. June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! We replaced an old different brand of hot water with this new model of InSinkErator with a turn handle. The water gets nice and hot plus it looks good. The handle is easier to turn than the old turn handle InSinkErator model. I bought it at a big box store so there was no delivery or customer service to date. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very well made. I had one previously, a different brand, and almost never used it. My new InSinkErator is so much nicer that I use it all the time. Love it! July 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by We will see how long it lasts We had an Insta Hot at our old house for 30 years and it worked perfectly but it was because it was VERY well built back then....built to last. This new product is very cheaply made, absolutely nothing like the original one. The plumber who installed it said that the new ones only last about 2 years now because the are so poorly made. Even the little spiket on the sink feels like it will break easily. Although it works and does give hot water, I am very disappointed in the quality of the product and the noise it makes while heating up the water in between uses. These are very expensive to install also, so I hope it lasts longer than the plumber predicts. February 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy for the money I just replaced my instant hot water dispenser after using the first one successfully for close to 10 years. This is exactly the same model as I had before. The previous one became corroded and although I did disassemble it and did some cleaning, I was quite pleased with the performance. Corrosion caused it to drip and the seal where the spout inserts into the top of the unit finally gave out. I never had a problem with the heating unit. You were able to hear it when it was heating up but it wasn't bothersome. Pretty easy to install if your under-sink area isn't crowded. I absolutely LOVE being able to have instant hot water for drinks and clean up at the sink. I hope this one last even half as long. February 18, 2015
