We are delighted that you have chosen the InSinkErator®
Instant Hot Water Dispenser to be a part of your home. This unique
appliance will save you time and effort in the kitchen, and you’ll enjoy
discovering new uses for it each day. That’s exactly why millions of people

We are confident that by following our step-by-step instructions, you’ll
soon be enjoying the convenience of instant hot water.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU BEGIN
n For your satisfaction and safety, read all instructions, cautions, warnings and dangers before installing
or using this instant hot water dispenser.
n This particular unit is not intended for commercial use.
n Make sure that all electrical wiring and connections conform to local codes.
n A standard 120-volt grounded electrical outlet is required under the sink for the dispenser’s electrical power.
n The wall outlet powering your dispenser must have power supplied to it continuously.
n This outlet must be fused and should not be controlled by the same wall switch that operates the
disposer, unless you have a SinkTop Switch™ from InSinkErator®.
n If you suspect elevated levels of chlorine in your water, it is recommended to use our water
filtration system.
n The use of a water filter should NOT result in the water pressure to drop below 30 psi (207kPa).
If it does, this will prevent your unit from operating properly.
n Moving parts inside the tank causing a rattling noise is normal.
WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED
Equipment Required:
n Drill
n Compression fitting,
T-fitting or saddle valve
n Adjustable wrench
Equipment You May Need:
n Anchors for drywall
n Hole saw
n Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers
n Pencil
n Tape Measure
n Level
n Basin wrench
n Hole punch
If you intend to use the sprayer hole in your sink for your dispenser, you may need a basin wrench and a
1/8" plug or a 1/4" cap (not supplied) for the faucet spray hose line. See Step 1-B.
If you need to cut a mounting hole in your stainless steel sink, you may need a 11⁄4" - 11⁄2" hole saw made
for cutting stainless steel or a hole punch. Consult a professional if you are drilling into a surface other
than stainless steel.

Gurgling or hissing is normal during the
initial heating cycle.
Electric Shock Hazard: Using an ungrounded or improperly connected
appliance can result in serious injury or death from electrical shock.
This appliance must be grounded. This instant hot water dispenser is equipped with a cord that
has a grounding conductor and a grounding pin. The plug must be connected to an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in
doubt as to whether the instant hot water dispenser is properly grounded.
Personal Injury: This tank is a non-pressurized tank. DO NOT modify this system.
DO NOT close vent tube or connect other type dispensers or valves to the tank. Use only
the InSinkErator dispenser faucet supplied. Use only parts provided. Contact an
authorized InSinkErator Service agent for repairs or replacement components.
Fire Hazard: To minimize possibility of fire, DO NOT store flammable items such as
rags, paper or aerosol cans near the tank. DO NOT store or use gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Property Damage: To avoid water damage, replace any loose or split tubing.
Periodically inspect the unit for any signs of leakage and immediately remove from
service any unit suspected of leaking.
An instant hot water dispenser, like any water heater, has a limited life and will eventually
fail. To avoid possible property damage, this instant hot water dispenser should be
regularly examined for leakage and replaced when necessary. A drain pan, plumbed to
an appropriate drain or outfitted with a leak detector, should be used in those
applications where any leakage could cause property damage.
WARRANTY INFORMATION

CARE AND USE
Electric Shock Hazard: To prevent electrical shock, disconnect power before
servicing unit. Use only a properly grounded and polarized electric outlet.
ADJUSTING THE THERMOSTAT
Factory temperature pre-set is 200˚F.
To reset the thermostat to 200°,
turn the indicator one notch to the
right of vertical. After adjusting,
depress or twist the dispenser handle
for 20 seconds for water to re-heat to
the new setting.
approx. 200°
n To adjust water temperature, turn thermostat
dial on the front of the tank clockwise to
increase temperature or turn counter clockwise
to decrease temperature. Repeat if necessary.
All changes should be minimal.
Scalding Hazard: Do not allow
water to boil. May result in
severe burns.
SEASONAL STORAGE/DRAINAGE
Anytime the steaming hot water tap is not used for
extended periods of time, unplug and drain unit.
If it is below freezing you will need to unplug the
unit and drain it.
n Disconnect power from unit.
n Push hot water dispenser faucet lever
and allow water to flow until it is cool.
n Shut the cold water faucet off at the valve.
n Remove drain screw located on bottom
center of water tank and drain the water
into empty pail.
n Empty the tank and then reinstall drain
screw onto the bottom of tank, turning
until snug. Do NOT over tighten.
n Remove and drain filter cartridge. Reinstall.
n To place back in working order, fill tank
with water and re-connect the plug.
CLEANING THE FAUCET AND TANK
n Only use mild cleaners to clean the faucet
and plastic components.
n Cleaners with acids, abrasives, alkaline or
organic solvents will result in deterioration
of the plastic components and void the
warranty.
16
FILTER GUIDE AND REPLACEMENT
Replace filter cartridge when there is an obvious
decrease in water flow to the faucet or if there is an
objectionable taste or odor to the water.
When the inlet and outlet ports have been closed
and the filter’s internal pressure has been relieved,
water (about 2 oz) will discharge from vent line.
If the new filter cartridge cannot be inserted,
insert the old one and turn until it stops, remove it
and then retry the new cartridge.
It is recommended that carbon filters be replaced
within 12 months.
Filter replacement instructions:
n Replace with an InSinkErator® filter.
n Place pan or dish towel under the filter to
catch water drainage during change.
n Slowly turn the cartridge counter-clockwise
completely until it stops (1/4 turn).
n Pull cartridge straight down and discard.
n Insert new cartridge into filter head.
n Top surface of cartridge will become flush
with the bottom of the filter head when
fully engaged.
n Turn the cartridge clockwise until it stops
(1/4 turn).
n Align the in/out arrow on the head and
bracket assembly to the in/out arrow on
the cartridge.
n Open faucet to expel trapped air.
n Run water for 3 minutes before usage.
