Written Directions

Before attempting to repair your dispenser, read and understand the entire InSinkErator safety and installation instructions listed below.

Materials Needed




  • The dispenser takes about 15 minutes to reach target temperature. If there is still no hot water after this time, there are a couple of things you can check. 

Check the dispenser's electrical connection.

Check that the dispenser is connected to a properly grounded electric outlet and that the circuit breakers or fuses are in good order.


For Duratank models only, your tank has a thermal cut-off feature that may have tripped.

Open the access panel on the front of the tank with a screwdriver. Locate the thermal cut-off button and press it to reset the switch.


Still Not Working?

If after following our troubleshooting solutions, your dispenser still does not have hot water, it may need service. If the problem with your dispenser is due to defects in materials or workmanship, InSinkErator ma​y pay to have an authorized service center service the dispenser in your home at no charge to you.
