Question about Water Filters & Coolers
Possibly the compressor has run out of coolant. I would get a refrigeration company to check the pressures and top it up if needed.

Sounds like the fans have stoped turning for the cooling system. If you cannot hear the fans turn on when you flip the COOL switch this is your problem. Pick the fans up at a computer parts store like Frys. Any other part failure on this unit other than a loose wire is not worth repairing. A little oil inside the motor and several revolutions later might get some relief until a new motor is installed.

Hello! About 2 weeks ago, the same problem began on my Hamilton Beach water dispenser.
Last week, I called the HB service support, and they told me to do the following reset procedure:
1. Dispense 3 cups from the HOT water side, and also, 3 cups from the COLD water side.
2. Turn BOTH back switches OFF (the ones on the back of the water dispenser).
3. Unplug the dispenser, and LEAVE it unplugged for 24 hours.
4. After 24 hours, turn the back switches ON and plug it in.
5. Leave it on for 4 hours WITHOUT dispensing any water.
...it's been about 12 hours since I've dispensed water again for the first time, and so far, SO GOOD! I'll update if the problems reappear.

Check to see if the dispenser has an integral water filter. If yes, replace it to improve the taste of the water. If no, then unplug and remove the top panel and shut off the water supply line to the unit.
You'll want to drain the cooling tank and clean it with some white vinegar to remove any mineral deposits that could be affecting the taste of the water. You'll want to lightly scrub the inside of the chilling/cooling tank with a mixture of at least 2/3 white vinegar and warm water to help dissolve any residue in the tank.
After you've gotten it as clean as possible, turn on the water supply line and flush the tank by filling a pitcher from the cold water dispenser. Do this for at least 2-3 gallons of water to completely clear out the vinegar mixture.
You'll also want to remove and sanitize the dispenser valves on the front of the unit, as there could be some gunk inside the spout that is adding to the foul taste and odor.
I would also suggest you install an inline charcoal water filter to the supply line serving this cooler, as that will only help improve the taste and clarity of your drinking water.
You should be able to adjust the temp of the cold water with a thermostat controler located inside the cabinent. You might want to contat Hamilton Beach to obtain an owner's manual for your unit to get more detailed information about use and operation recommendations.
Hope you found this info very helpful and best regards!

We purchaced this water dispencer about 2 years ago, everything was working normal, water heater works fine and the cooler would come on and go off normally,until you dispenced cold water and then the coller would cool down and shut of like it's supposed to.
Afetr a couple of years , one day it started cooling continuously and wouldn't stop, I've just shut the cooler switch off on the back of the unit until i can figure the problem out,unit #(87330).
I believe the problem is in the circuit control board, but with out further testing i can't be sure .

Hi. I have a Hamilton Beach Model 2202 and it's been working fine until last week. Now I have no cold water.
