Troubleshooting

In the unlikely event that you experience a problem with your machine, please in the first instance refer to the below troubleshooting. If you are unable to resolve the issue with these small checks, please call the office on 01223 830400.

Has your cooler stopped chilling the water? 

  • Check the mains plug is pushed in to the socket and check that it is switched on
  • Check that the power lead at the back of the cooler is pushed firmly in. This is like a kettle flex and can work loose if the cooler is moved to be cleaned around
  • Check that the red switch on the back of the cooler is turned on
  • Make sure that the water cooler has not been heavily used prior to your use. If it has it will just need a little time to refill and chill the water
  • If you have tried all of the above and your cooler still isnt chilling we would advise adjusting the thermostat on the back of the cooler. There is a flat head screw situated at the top and back of the cooler. Turn this screw 180 degrees to the right/clockwise and your cooler should be chilling after around 15 minutes

Has your boiler stopped dispensing boiling water? 

  • Check the mains plug is pushed in to the socket and check that it is switched on
  • Please turn the boiler off at the plug, emtpy all of the water from the boiler through the tap and leave for 5 mins. After 5 minutes turn it back on and this will hopefully reset the boiler
  • Make sure that the water boiler has not been heavily used prior to your use. If it has it will just need a little time to refill and reheat the water

Does the cooler/boiler appear to be leaking? 

  • Check that the drip tray is not overflowing. If the drip tray is full, please just remove the drip tray from the front of the cooler/boiler and emtpy the contents down a sink or into a drain.
  • Check that nothing else around the machine could be leaking
  • Check that there has not been a spillage

Has your cooler/boiler stopped dispensing water? 

  • Make sure that the small blue isolation value at the back of the cooler/boiler, normally within a meter is in line with the plastic tube. If it is at 90 degrees to the pipe, turn in line and this will allow water back into your cooler/boiler
  • Make sure that the cooler/boiler has not been heavily used just before. If it has, the cooler will just need time to refill
  • Make sure that the water supply has not been turned off at the point of connection to the copper pipe

 

If you are still unable to resolve the issue, contact us on 01223 830400 and we will be happy to help.

**Call out charges will apply where there is no fault with the equipment**

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE.

IN THE EVENT OF A LEAK – The water shut off valve is located on the plastic pipe at the back of the cooler approx. 1m away. Turn this so it is no longer in line with the pipe to shut off the supply and turn off the power.

Your cooler is plumbed into the drinking water supply. In the unlikely event of an “Emergency Notice” being announced by your local water company not to drink the water, please:

Put a notice on the cooler “DO NOT USE” and Contact us IMMEDIATELY.
