My unit has been taken out of service due to lack of use. It has been placed in storage but I may be able to provide dimensions later. However, the dimensions should be available in the "product details" portion of the on-line listing.

Thanks for your interest in Hamilton Beach products. It sounds like you are experiencing an issue with the compressor not working properly to cool the water. If the cold water light stays on and never goes off, this is not normal, as it should turn off after the cooling cycle is complete (approximately 30 to 60 minutes). Please call Hamilton Beach Customer Service at 1-800-256-8169 for help with troubleshooting/warranty info.

Thank you for purchasing a Hamilton Beach water dispenser. When the bottle is empty, the dispenser's pump will run for 2-3 minutes then shut off and the red "bottle empty" indicator light on the front panel will be blink. After replacing the bottle and closing the bottom door, the pump will run for 3-4 minutes to refill the hot and cold tanks. If you have any additional questions please call 1-800-256-8169 for customer service.

Noise level - please compare to a refrigerator or other water coolers.

Much quieter than our previous water cooler and our new refrigerator. Our bedroom is near the kitchen and we can't hear it run. Very quiet...no annoying sounds when cooling.

Do you get room temperature water from the hot water spout, if you turn the hot water switch off?

Asked by angaps September 29, 2016
3
Answers

There is only one water spout. On top are 3 buttons that control water...hot water, room temp and cold water. The hot water is child proof and you can turn off heating and cooling switches on the back if you are away from home.

Are all plastic parts bpa-free?

Asked by healthminded July 7, 2016

Answer

The plastic parts in the dispenser that come in contact with the water ("wetted parts" or "food contact parts") are all certified as BPA-free by independent 3rd party testing labs. However, you need to check with your bottled water supplier to ensure they are using BPA-free bottles.

Bottom Loading Hot and Cold Water Dispenser
I have this product for a 3 weeks. I like it. Very hot water for my tea.. Big buttons to press the selection of water. When I am out to work, I turn off the buttons I want off. I don't even have to have the hot water on all day.

We received our new water dispenser on February 5th. Took it out of the box and did not use it until February 28th due to remodeling our kitchen. Now the hot water does not work every time you click it on the light goes out indicating it is heating. There must be a short in it. Junk

Was broken in 4 places when we opened the box, with the white plastic enclosure coming apart. We had to return it and there were no more available due to be out of stock in any color.

sleek and attractive and looks good in my kitchen. Easy to move (w/o 5-gal water bottle) to clean under and around the cooler. The bottom loading feature is just what I needed and easy to load since I don't have the strength to lift these heavy bottles anymore. The water comes out neat and does not splatter if glass is positioned properly. Easy to fill 12-16 oz water bottles. I haven't tried the hot/cold features yet that's why I only rated it 4 stars.
