Maintaining Your Water Dispenser
Like most appliances, your new water dispenser requires regular cleaning to operate efficiently.
Your water dispenser must be cleaned every 4 months (see procedure on page 5).
Installing the Water Bottle
IMPORTANT: Always wash your hands first! Clean the top (neck) of the bottle with a clean cloth and
do not touch the part of the unit that the water touches. Make sure the unit is unplugged and power
switch is in the OFF position. The water bottle can be purchased from your local retailer.
1. Remove the protective cap from the end of the water bottle unless the bottle has a puncturable
cap or sticker.
2. Lift and turn the bottle upside down, placing it securely on the bottle support collar.
3. Press and hold both dispenser taps until water flows from the dispenser. Drain about 0.3 gal / 1 L of
water before initial use. This does not need to be repeated with replacement bottles.
4. Plug in the water dispenser.
5. Set the power switch at the rear of the dispenser to the ON position (see item 12 on page 2).
6. Ready-to-dispense indicator lights will come on when water reaches optimum temperatures and is
ready for use. In order to get steaming hot water, the Insta-HOT feature needs to be activated.
(See Dispensing Hot Water).

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT LEAKING BOTTLES
If you find that your dispenser is leaking, check the water bottle first!
Almost all 3 and 5 gallon water bottles are recycled, and handled extensively during cleaning, filling,
and shipping. As a result they are very prone to developing pin holes or small cracks that can cause an
overflow (or leak) when placed on top of a water dispenser.
Most often, there is nothing wrong with your water dispenser. If you are
experiencing a leak, this simple test will allow you to determine whether
your water bottle or dispenser is the source of the problem.
1. Unplug the unit, turn off power switch and remove the water bottle.
1.
2. a) Remove the bottle support collar and check the water level inside
the reservoir – it should be at roughly three-quarters full.
b) Please add or drain a few glasses of water to achieve the required
fill level. Water level should be approximately 3/4” – 1” BELOW
VENT TUBE.
3. Let the water sit for approximately 2 hours. If the dispenser does not
leak, it is the bottle that is leaking due to a small crack or pinhole.
Please contact your water supplier for a replacement bottle.

Water Level
Dispensing Room and Cold Water
Place a glass under the appropriate tap. For cold water, press the blue tap downward until the desired
amount of water is dispensed. Before the Insta-HOT feature is activated, the red tap dispenses room
temperature water. To dispense room water, squeeze the red handle and press downward until the
desired amount of water is dispensed. (For hot water, See Dispensing Hot Water).
Adjusting the Temperature (Cold water only)
Med
By turning the thermostat at the back of the unit, the temperature can be
adjusted. Turn the dial clockwise between the min (cool) and max (colder)
levels until the desired temperature is reached.
If the water dispenser is not dispensing water, there could be a possible ice build
up due to the thermostat being set too cold. If this happens, unplug the dispenser
overnight and then reset. Set thermostat to MIN, slowly increasing based on your
use and need for cold water.

Dispensing Hot Water
This water dispenser has a power saving Insta-HOT Feature button which activates the water heater
only when pressed, so you get hot water on demand without the cost of constantly heating water!
To dispense hot water, first press the Insta-HOT Feature activation button. The
red indicator light will begin flashing to indicate that the water heater is on and
active. In approximately 3 minutes the set temperature point will be reached and
the red light will stop flashing and remain on. The water is now ready to be
dispensed; squeeze the red handle and press downward. If water is not
immediately dispensed, the water will begin to cool and the red light will shut off,
requiring you to initiate another cycle.
Childproof Safety Feature
To prevent hot water from accidentally harming a child, the hot
water dispenser tap has a safety mechanism. Firmly squeeze the
red tap and press downward to dispense hot water.
DANGER: The hot water is heated to approximately 194˚ F / 90˚ C.
Temperatures above 125˚ F / 52˚ C can cause severe burns from scalding.
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO USE THE HOT WATER DISPENSING
BUTTON WITHOUT PROPER AND DIRECT SUPERVISION.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Like most appliances, your new water dispenser requires periodic maintenance to operate efficiently.
Your water dispenser must be cleaned every 4 months. Failure to maintain your dispenser will void
your warranty.
Cleaning Your Water Dispenser
IMPORTANT: Make sure you turn power switch to the OFF position and unplug the dispenser before
performing any of the following cleaning procedures.
Cleaning the Outside of the Water Dispenser
The outside of the dispenser can be wiped clean with water dispenser cleaning solution or a mild
soap and water. Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. Rinse thoroughly with clean water
and then dry surfaces.
Cleaning the Drip Tray
To remove, take the grill off the tray and firmly lift the tray up, dislodging it
from the guides. Drain and clean.
The drip tray should be emptied and cleaned regularly to remove spotting
and any mineral deposits. Clean with water dispenser cleaning solution or
a mild soap and water. For tough deposits, add vinegar and let it soak
until the deposits come loose. Then wash, rinse and dry thoroughly.
To replace, put the grill back on the tray and slide the tray onto the guides.

Cleaning the Condenser
Vacuum or sweep away the dust from the condenser coils at the
back of the dispenser. For best results, you can purchase
Condenser
a brush designed specifically for this purpose from your
coils
local appliance store. This will improve cooling and efficiency.
Draining the Reservoirs
Drain the reservoirs before and after cleaning, when going on long vacations or if not using the
dispenser for long periods of time.
IMPORTANT! Turn power switch to the OFF position and unplug the dispenser before
performing this procedure. Dispense hot water until temperature drops to a safe level to avoid
the risk of scalding.
1. Remove the water bottle.
2. Press both dispensing taps until water no longer comes out.
3. Place a bucket beneath the drain valve on the back of
the dispenser.
4. Remove the cap and plug from the drain valve and let the water
flow into the bucket. Replace the cap and plug. (A screwdriver or coin
can be used to help loosen the drain cap.)
IMPORTANT: Collect the water in a container, not the drip tray.
5. Replace the water bottle. (See Installing the Water Bottle).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why is my water dispenser leaking?
A: If you are experiencing a leak with your water dispenser please do the following to see if the water
bottle or the dispenser is leaking.
1. Unplug the unit, turn off the power switch and remove the bottle.
2. Remove the bottle support collar and check the water level inside the reservoir – it should be at
roughly three-quarters full. Water level should be approximately 3/4” – 1” BELOW VENT TUBE.
3. Let water sit for 2 hours. If the dispenser does not leak, it is the bottle that is leaking due to
a small crack or pinhole and it needs to be replaced. If the dispenser is leaking, please
contact Greenway Home Products at support@greenwayhp.com or 1-866-253-0447.
Q: Why do I get a plastic taste from my dispenser?
A: As with most new appliances such as coffee makers and kettles, there is often a plastic taste upon
initial start-up of the unit. To remove this taste, simply follow the cleaning instructions outlined in
Cleaning the Reservoirs.
Q: What do the ready-to-dispense indicator lights mean?
A: When illuminated, they mean the following:
Red:
“flashing”
Heater is in operation
"on”
The hot water has reached its optimum
temperature and is ready for dispensing
Blue:
"on"
The cold water has reached its optimum
temperature and is ready for dispensing
Q: What is the spike that goes into the bottle?
A: vitapur® water dispensers feature a “piercing valve” as part of the bottle support collar, providing
added convenience for water bottle installation. Depending on the water bottle supplier, a small
opening may or may not be present in the bottle cap for this specific purpose. If the piercing valve
opening is not present, the entire bottle cap must then be removed to eliminate possible damage to
the piercing valve. If the opening is present, remove the protective seal prior to installing the bottle.
