Before you start...
Check location where hot water dispenser will be
installed. Proper installation is your responsibility.
Make sure you have everything necessary for
correct installation. It is the responsibility of the
installer to comply with installation specifications
provided and with state and local plumbing codes.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Special care must be taken when drilling
holes into walls or water pipes. Electrical
wires may be concealed behind the wall
covering or water may remain in pipes.
Failure to follow this instruction could result
in personal injury or death.
Personal Injury Hazard
Install faucet with lever to the side or behind
spout.
Failure to do so may result in hot water
scalding hand when operating lever.
Faucet mounting: requires a 1-l/l 6” to l-3/8”
diameter opening in sink or countertop for
mounting hot water dispenser faucet. Faucet can
be installed in place of sink sprayer. For other
installations, contact a qualified installer for best
procedure to drill a hole through your type of sink
or countertop. Thickness of sink or countertop hole
must not exceed 3/4”.

For your personal safety, this appliance must be
grounded. This appliance is equipped with a
power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding
plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord
must be plugged into a mating 3-prong groundingtype wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with
National Electrical Code, ANSVNFPA 70-latest
edition* and all local codes and ordinances. (See
Figure 1.) If a mating wall receptacle is not
available, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have a properly
grounded 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.

Important: If local codes do Not permit the use
of saddle valves, special feed valves can be
obtained from your local plumbing supply
distributor.
If local codes permit, the hot water dispenser feed
line should be connected to the cold water supply
line using a saddle tapping valve. The saddle
tapping valve supplied is designed for use with
3/8” to l-318” outer dimension (O.D.), soft copper
supply tubing (plain or chrome plated) and rigid
metal pipe. Do Not use saddle valve with
flexible ribbed supply tubing. Flexible ribbed
supply tubing has a thin wall thickness and
requires special connection hardware, available
from your local plumbing supply distributor.
NOTE:
Connection to hot water line is not
recommended.
Energy will be wasted in
heating the water twice and the
magnesium rod used in household heating
may produce a “rotten egg” taste.
If this unit is replacing a hot water
dispenser connected to a hot water
supply, the existing connection may be
used.

Use and care
information
For short periods (2-30 days) of nonuse:
Set the hot water dispenser thermostat to the
“OFF’ position to conserve energy.
If you have very hard water, it may be necessary
to occasionally clean the faucet screen to remove
sediment buildup.
Your hot water dispenser uses a heating element
to warm water in the tank to approximately 190°F
when the temperature control is turned to the
highest position. You can draw approximately 2
quarts of hot water at a time. As hot water is
drawn from the tank, it refills with cold water, which
is then heated. It takes approximately 15 minutes
for a tank of cold water to heat to the maximum
temperature.

Personal Injury Hazard
Check that lever is to the side or behind
faucet spout before using hot water
dispenser.
Do Not reach into or splash hot water on
skin.
Do Not let children operate hot water
dispenser.
Do Not leave children or infants
unattended near hot water dispenser.
Do Not use hot water from dispenser for
bathing children, infants or pets.
Water from hot water dispenser can reach
temperatures of approximately
190°F.
Failure to follow these instructions
may
result in scalding or burns from hot water.
To get hot water from the tank:
Push or pull faucet lever.
To stop water flow from faucet:
Release faucet lever and let it return to the vertical
position.
Ways you can use your hot water
dispenser:
’
Your hot water dispenser water has many uses,
including:
l To prepare instant foods and drinks that require
190°F maximum water for preparation (such as
instant coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bouillon, soup,
instant cereal, instant mashed potatoes, frosting
mix, etc.).
l To get a fast start on cooking foods that require
boiling (such as hard boiled eggs, fresh or frozen
vegetables, meat cooking in liquid, dried soup,
pasta, rice, hot cereals, packaged dinners with
pasta, rice or potatoes).
l Loosening
jar lids.
l Warming baby bottles.
l Warming
baby food.
l Filling hot water bottles.
l Peeling tomatoes
or peaches.
l Dissolving
gelatin.
l Thawing
frozen foods.
l Preparing
vegetables for canning.
To remove the faucet screen:
1. Set hot water dispenser thermostat to “OFF.”
2. Hold lever down and drain hot water from tank.
Release lever.
3. Unscrew nozzle from faucet spout.
4. Remove screen and flow director from inside
nozzle.
To clean the screen and flow director:
1. Use a small brush and vinegar to remove
deposits.
2. If deposits have hardened, soak screen and
flow director in vinegar for l-2 hours. Then use
brush to clean.
To replace faucet screen:
1. Insert flow director into nozzle. Then insert
screen.
2. Position nozzle on end of faucet spout and
carefully tighten by hand.
NOTE: Nozzle must be fully tightened for screen
and flow director to be properly seated and for
nozzle not to leak.
3. Check that faucet spout is positioned away from
faucet lever. Hold lever down and check for
leaks at nozzle. If nozzle leaks, remove nozzle
and check that screen and flow director are
properly positioned. Replace nozzle and check
for leaks again.
4. Set hot water dispenser thermostat to “HIGH.”
On average, you will use your hot water dispenser
to heat 7 to 8 cups of water per day. This uses
only 19 kilowatt-hours of energy per month. So it is
Not necessary to turn off the hot water dispenser
each night to conserve energy.
However, if the hot water dispenser will not be
used for an extended period of time, follow these
instructions -
Problem
The water temperature is controlled by a
thermostat on the tank. The thermostat has infinite
settings between “OFF’ and “HIGH” and can be
adjusted by rotating the thermostat knob clockwise
for a higher temperature; counter-clockwise for a
lower temperature.
When the thermostat knob is turned to the “OFF’
position, the hot water dispenser will not heat the
water. When the thermostat knob is turned to the
“HIGH” position, the water will heat to
approximately 190°F.
It is recommended that the thermostat be set to
the “HIGH” position for the best performance.
However, under certain conditions, it is possible
that you will see vapor coming out of the faucet or
hear a boiling noise when the thermostat is set to
“HIGH.” If this occurs, lower the thermostat setting
to a position that eliminates the vapor or noise.
Panel E
For long periods of nonuse, seasonal storage
or protection from freezing:
1. Turn hot water dispenser thermostat to the
“OFF’ position.
2. Unplug hot water dispenser power supply cord.
3. Hold down faucet lever and run water until
water is cold.
4. Turn saddle valve handle clockwise to turn off
water supply.
5. Place a 3-quart minimum container under the
drain plug at the bottom of the tank.
6. Remove drain plug with a 9116” wrench and
allow all water to drain from tank.
6. Replace plug, but do Not overtighten.

Product Damage
Fill tank with water and turn thermostat to
“OFF” position before plugging hot water
dispenser into power supply.
Failure to do so could cause hot water
dispenser heater to overheat resulting in an
unpleasant taste, black specks in water,
and permanent damage to the heater seals.
1. Turn saddle valve handle counterclockwise to
open water supply line.
2. Hold down faucet lever until tank is full
(approximately 1 minute). When tank is full,
water will flow from faucet spout. Release lever.
Check for leaks.
3. Check that hot water dispenser thermostat is
set to “OFF’ position.
4. Plug power supply cord into properly grounded
outlet.
5. Set thermostat to “HIGH” position. Water in tank
will reach maximum temperature in
approximately 15 minutes and dispenser will be
ready for use.
