Common Cooler Issues

Water Too Hot or Too Cold
Check outlet for power. Some outlets are controlled by a wall switch. Adjust thermostat on back of cooler. Turn the screw or pivot clockwise for colder, and counter clockwise for less cold.

Valves Not Releasing Water
The Air filter on no-spill may be wet. Remove bottle and no spill from dispenser. Locate and remove air filter. A wet air filter will dry in open air in 2-3 days. Replace no-spill and bottle and test. If problem persists, ice may be blocking outlet valves. Try turning down the thermostat. Turn screw or pivot counter-clockwise for less cold.

White Particles in Water
These are most likely calcium particles, which form when the minerals dissolved in Spring water come out of solution during cooling, and build-up in the reservoir. Follow the Spring water cleaning instructions above.

Noise Coming From Cooler
When the thermostat starts the compressor, a noticeable click will be heard, followed by a humming sound. This is normal. If a rattling or knocking sound is heard, clear unit of any surrounding articles in contact with the cooler.
