WATERSAFE™ SPILL-PROOF BOTTLED WATER COOLER

FAILURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES MAY DAMAGE THE COOLER, CAUSE IT TO FAIL, AND/OR VOID THE COOLER WARRANTY.

Installation and Maintenance Instructions.
VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ BEFORE USE.
If the cooler was placed on its side to transport, be sure to allow the unit to stand upright for at least four (4) hours before plugging in cooler. Failure to observe this procedure could cause the unit to fail or produce excessive noise and may void your warranty.

MANUFACTURER'S BASIC OPERATIONAL GUIDELINES
(Glacier Mountain is not the cooler manufacturer)

  • Always unplug the cooler from the wall outlet when out of water.

Note: Always make sure there is water in the cooler and hot tank before plugging unit into an electrical outlet. Air must be bled out of the hot tank by depressing the hot side (red) faucet to fill the hot tank with water before energizing the unit.
(See "Recommended Steps to Replace Bottle").

  • Locate cooler in a well ventilated area making sure there is at least 2" of clearance around the back of the cooler for proper air flow.
  • Locate the cooler within reach of a suitable grounded electrical outlet.
  • To help prevent algae growth do not place cooler in direct sunlight or in front of heating vents.
  • Choose a location where the floor is level. If cooler does not set level on the floor, use a shim under one of the feet on the base of the coolers.
  • Do not locate cooler in area where the temperature may fall below freezing.
  • Cooler is pre-cleaned at the factory; however the reservoir & water lines must be sanitized and flushed with fresh water before use. Glacier Mountain performs this service at no cost as part of standard installation procedure. (See Maintenance section.) Regular cleaning and sanitizing is advised to ensure satisfactory water quality. Glacier Mountain offers this service semi-annually at a cost of $49 per sanitizing.
  • Do not use the cooler or bottle as a shelf for plants or storage of other objects. Keep area around cooler free of dust and dirt. (Never place objects on top of the cooler, especially, but not limited to hot or flammable items)

PLACING COOLER INTO SERVICE

(Glacier Mountain performs all the steps in this section at no cost to all customers with Service Agreement)

  • Do not remove foam insulation from outside of reservoir. Unit will not operate properly with foam removed and the warranty will be voided.
  • Remove Water Safe Assembly by placing fingers into opening on the outside perimeter of the Water Safe Assembly and applying upward pressure until the assembly is freed from the reservoir.
  • Thoroughly clean and flush reservoir and hot tank if so equipped. (See Maintenance section for guidance.)
  • Make sure baffle is correctly installed. The tube of the baffle should be pressed firmly into the corresponding reservoir outlet.
  • Reinstall the Water Safe Assembly by placing it into the opening of the reservoir and pressing downward until the unit is flush with the top of the cooler.
  • Remove the hygienic seal on the bottle cap, and place the bottle on the cooler.
  • Open faucets to draw water until streams are free of air bubbles. On hot & cold coolers, make sure water flows out of hot faucet before plugging cooler into outlet. Failure to do so could damage unit and void the warranty.
  • On units with detachable power supply cord, ensure that power supply cord is firmly seated in the mating receptacle located in the rear of cooler.
  • Plug in the unit.

  • Place bottle on cooler, centering the bottle on the no-spill probe tip.
  • Turn bottle so that label is facing front of cooler.
  • If cooler is a Hot & Cold unit, you must bleed the air out of the hot tank by depressing the hot side (red) faucet to fill the hot tank with water before plugging in the unit.

TAKING COOLER OUT OF SERVICE

  • Unplug the cooler.
  • Remove the bottle from the cooler.
  • Drain the water from the cooler through the faucets.

MAINTENANCE

ALWAYS UNPLUG THE COOLER BEFORE ANY CLEANING OR OTHER ACTIVITY WITH COOLER!

  • At regular intervals, inspect the wire grid located across the back of the cooler for lint and dust build up. Vacuum or clean with a brush. Regular cleaning will help to keep the cooler running efficiently and economically.
  • The compressor is hermetically sealed and requires no lubrication. It is also fitted with an automatic reset overload protection switch.

CLEANING AND SANITIZING YOUR WATERSAFE™ COOLER

Note: Cooler Manufactures recommend cooler sanitizing at least every 6 months.

  • Unplug the cooler from the electrical outlet.
  • Remove the bottle.
  • Drain any water left in the reservoir through the faucets
  • Remove Water Safe Assembly by placing fingers into opening on the outside perimeter of the Water Safe Assembly and applying upward pressure until the assembly is freed from the reservoir.
  • Remove air filter from Water Safe Assembly. If there is noticeable dust build-up on filter it should be cleaned by using a soft dry cloth and lightly dusting off the top of the filter. Place cleaned filter aside.
  • Water Safe Assembly may be cleaned in a dishwasher or manually. If washing manually only use a mild detergent such as Joy and do not use any abrasive material to wash unit.
  • Thoroughly rinse and dry unit and re-install air filter. You may order replacement filters by calling Glacier Mountain Spring Water.
  • Let cooler stand for a few minutes to allow ice in the reservoir to melt. Add warm water to speed up this process.
  • Drain water again. Take a clean non-abrasive sponge and wipe out reservoir. Do not use soaps or detergents. Pour additional water into reservoir to rinse and drain again through cold spigot only.
  • Boil water and pour slowly into reservoir until it is full.
  • Allow water to stand for 1 minute. Drain water out of both faucets. This procedure sanitizes the water lines and the faucets.
  • Replace Water Safe Assembly by pressing unit firmly into the reservoir opening until the unit is flush with the top of the cooler.
  • Place bottle on top of cooler. See Recommended Steps To Replace Bottle.
  • Depress faucets until water flows freely from both faucets.
  • Plug in unit. (It takes a few minutes for water to reach the desired hot and cold temperatures.

Cleaning Plastic Parts – Periodic cleaning of drip trap, faucet paddles and top of cooler are recommended. To clean plastic parts, use liquid soap and warm water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners. Drip tray should not be used for disposing unwanted beverages.

Note: Do not use "Fantastic" cleaner or similar products on plastic parts. These products contain chemicals that can cause the plastics to become brittle and discolored.

Cleaning Cabinet Exterior – The cooler exterior can be cleaned with liquid soap and warm water. Make sure the washed parts are rinsed thoroughly and all soap residues are removed. (Do not use abrasive cleaners which can scratch surfaces)
