Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical
consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the appliance not to perform
properly.
Allow 2 inches of space between the water dispenser and the wall, which allows for proper air
circulation to cool the compressor.
Plug the appliance into an exclusive properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not cut or remove
the third (ground) prong from the power cord under any circumstances. Any questions concerning
power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Avanti

Do not locate the dispenser in area where the temperature may fall below freezing (32º F).
Keep area around dispenser free of dust and dirt.
Keep the reserve supply of water bottles away from excessive heat and light.
Never unplug the water cooler, except for maintenance.

INITIAL PRODUCT SET-UP
Before Using Your Water Dispenser
• Check to be sure the following parts are included:
 Instruction manual
 Plastic Ice Scoop
• Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours.
This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during
transportation.
• The water dispenser is pre-cleaned at the factory but the reservoir and water lines must be flushed
with fresh water before use as follows:
• Keep the unit unplugged.
• Fill water tank with tap water full to capacity. Wait for 5 minutes until water settles.
• Turn the child safety button then push the hot water faucet until water comes out, then stop.
• Plug the dispenser into the electrical outlet. We are ready to complete the first cycle. In order to
do that, wait for the hot water to reach temperature in approximately 10 minutes, and then wait for
the cold to reach temperature (another 40 minutes, approximately).
• Unplug the dispenser from the electrical outlet. Proceed to drain the water from the faucets one at
a time until no more water remains.
(Note: To facilitate this operation, use a large container).
• Then, drain any water left in the tanks by opening the drain plug located on the back, until it drains
completely.
• Proceed to close the drain cap.
• Remove the cap from the 3 or 5-gallon bottle and use a clean cloth to wipe off the neck of the
bottle.
• Place the 3 or 5-gallon bottle of water on the water intake, allow water to stand for approximately
one minute.
• Push water faucet buttons to insure water flows from each of the faucets.
• Plug dispenser back into the electrical outlet.
• Now you are ready to use your water dispenser.
NOTE: Your water dispenser has been cleaned and sanitized before leaving the
factory, but in case a taste problem develops, place two tablespoons of
baking soda and add tap water. Fill water tank again and repeat basic
operations previously outlined, except turn hot water function “OFF” to
avoid leaving residues in hot water tank.
ATTENTION:
If you do not plan to use the water heating function for more than three days, we
recommend that you turn off the hot water function.

WATER BOTTLE PLACEMENT / REPLACEMENT
When a new bottle is installed you must open the hot water faucet and remove no less than 4 full cups of
water to insure the water flows properly and the water reservoir is at the proper level.
Steps To Replace Water Bottles

 Carefully lift bottle (approx. 40 lbs.) using your legs and not your back. Do not place hands on
opening of bottle while placing in reservoir.
 Insert the water bottle on the water intake over reservoir opening so it settles properly on it.
 Wipe off any water which may have splashed on dispenser top.

of the room.
While the ice-making process is ON, the unit will periodically verify the water level.
If there is not enough water to make ice, the ice-maker will stop automatically and the RED
ALERT indicator (see figure above) will glow.
Once the ice-maker detects the ice compartment is full, the ice indicator light (see figure
above) will automatically change from blinking to constantly lit.
To remove the ice, open the ice-maker door and using the ice scoop (included) remove the
amount of ice as desired.
For the most efficient operation of the ice-making process, turn the hot water button (see
figure above) temporarily OFF until needed.
NOTE:
When you turn on the cold water and ice-making operations at the same time, you should wait
several minutes to let the water temperature in the cold tank go down to the set temperature first, then
the unit will switch to ice-making operation automatically.
If the cold water temperature goes up again or you drink the cold water from the cold water
faucet, the unit will switch to cold water operation again after the present ice-making cycle has
finished.
