INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTION
Every facility has been provided to build water coolers of the best material with the most modern
Each cooler is performance-tested before leaving the factory. All controls, capillary lines, valves,
bubblers, and other equipment are properly set for efficient operation. The cooler, tested and checked, is then
crated and properly marked for shipment.
RECEIVING AND UNCRATING
A. Inspection for Damage - Upon receipt, all coolers should be carefully unpacked and inspected for
damage during shipment. If the cooler has been damaged in any way, a claim should be filed against the carrier
involved. The damage claim must be filed within 48 hours after the cooler has been received. When filing a
damage claim specify: The damage involved and serial number of the cooler. A copy of the claim should be
forwarded to the cooler manufacturer to the attention of the shipper.
B. Unpacking Shipments
1. Domestic - Carefully cut all sides of the carton near the bottom. Lift carton straight up and off the
water cooler, and lift water cooler from carton bottom.
2. Overseas - Remove the nails that hold the sides of the crate to the base with a nail puller. Then
either lift crate off the cooler or remove the nails, with the nail puller from around the top and joints of the crate
and dismantle the entire crate. Remove the staples or nails that hold the cart on to the wooden base. Lift the
carton off the cooler and remove all waterproofing paper and other wrapping materials. Remove the shipping
A. Main Drain - A drain fitting is provided on every cooler. Do not reduce the size of the drain line. The
drain should be connected first and all joints must be watertight and a drain trap must be installed according to
good plumbing practice and regulations.
B. Water Inlet - This fitting is a 3/8" female pipe size. See Roughing-In for location and recommended
water supply line.
If the water pressure is greater than 75 P.S.I.G., a pressure reducing valve must be installed.
CAUTION: Floor mounted coolers must set firm and level on the floor to prevent excessive vibration.
For adequate ventilation (air cooled models), a clearance of 4" must be maintained at the back of the
cabinet (standard construction) or right sides (facing front of the cabinet) for flush-to-wall type.
A. Current Check - The electrical current must be the same voltage, cycle, and phase as indicated on the
serial name plate of the cooler. If these characteristics are not identical, DO NOT PLUG ELECTRICAL CORD.
Serious damage could result if this procedure is not followed.
B. Procedure - After checking the electrical characteristics, unwrap the wall cord and plug into the
receptacle. The cooler will start to operate on very short cycles until the entire unit is at the proper temperature.
The temperature of the water may be regulated by changing the position of the temperature control. The
thermostat is factory set and usually does not need to be adjusted.
A. When the unit has been started, open the bubbler valve to remove the air from the water-containing
parts. When all the air has been released, check the height of the drinking water stream. The stream is set at the
factory to flow at a desirable height when the water line pressure is between 20 to 75 lbs. P.S.I.G. Should an
adjustment be necessary, see Illustration Page.
