Access to instant hot water can be vital to the success of your business’ operation. Which is why dealing with a faulty or broken hot water dispenser is not only frustrating, but also cumbersome.
A hot water dispenser that isn’t functioning properly could indicate a need for repairs or full system replacement. To help get your hot water flowing again, you can trust the technicians at Mr. Rooter® Plumbing to provide the best quality service.
Hot Water Dispenser Repair
When your hot water dispenser is malfunctioning, it’s possible that descaling, cleaning, adjusting the system settings, and checking for loose connections could initially resolve the problem.
However, issues with your hot water dispenser could extend beyond the system itself—that’s why it’s important to reach out to service experts for repair.
Some common repair concerns we resolve are:
- Malfunctioning parts
- Electrical issues
- Piping issues
- Water pressure issues
- Filter clogging
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your hot water dispenser will help ensure proper functioning and an extended lifespan for the system. For more information about maintaining your hot water dispenser, you can count on our service experts for specifics.
Hot Water Dispenser Replacement
There are a number of reasons your hot water dispenser may need to be replaced. Over time, certain parts may wear down due to frequency of use, mineral buildup, or improper maintenance. This can cause your system to stop functioning correctly.
Some common signs your hot water dispenser needs replacing are:
- Malfunctioning unit despite repairs
- Poor tasting water
- Water temperature or pressure issues
- Unit simply won’t work/turn on
- Old age (5-10 years)
Even with proper maintenance, commercial hot water dispensers will need partial or full system replacement more frequently than residential units due to the frequency of use.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you descale a hot water dispenser?
To descale your hot water dispenser, mix a 1:1 ratio of water and white vinegar in the hot water pot (you can also use citric acid or commercial descaling products). Set the machine to boil or press the descaling button. After boiling, let it sit overnight. Empty the pot and check for any remaining limescale. Repeat this process if any limescale remains. Otherwise, repeat the process with water only to flush out vinegar residue.
How do you clean a hot water dispenser?
To clean the exterior, first unplug the machine. You can create a cleaning solution with warm water and either dish soap or vinegar, then dip a rag or towel in the solution to wipe the surface, spout, and drip tray. Wipe it down with a dry towel. For the reservoir, drain any water through the spigot. Then, remove the reservoir and pour soapy water in the tank to clean with a cloth. After, rinse with clean water and wipe it dry.
Why does my hot water dispenser sputter?
It’s possible the temperature on your hot water dispenser is set too high, causing the water to boil and sputter. Try turning the temperature down slightly first to see if this resolves the issue. If not, there may be a loose connection that you should tighten. It may also be you have calcium buildup restricting water flow, which you can resolve by descaling. If these methods don’t work, call a professional for troubleshooting and possible repairs.
