Welcome to the world of filtered hot water convenience, from In-Sink-EratorHot Water Dispensers

Congratulations on the purchase of your new In-Sink-EratorSeries 1100 Hot Water Dispenser! This system will provide safe, filtered hot water on demand for the ultimate in sinktop convenience.

How it works: A small tank, mounted neatly under the cabinet, maintains a 1/2 gallon of water atnear-boiling(up to 212˚F) temperature. Cool tap water is plumbed into a valve in the dispensing faucet. When the valve is opened, the cool tap water flows into the tank displacing thenear-boilingwater, which flows out of the faucet. The hot water dispenser can be less costly than heating water on astove-topor microwave because the only water heated is that which is consumed!

The HC System dispenses fresh, filtered,near-boilingwater and cool drinking water.

The GN System dispenses fresh, filtered,near-boilingwater only.

Know what these safety symbols mean:

DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.

WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.


The Installation, Care and Use of your new 1100 Series In-Sink-EratorHot Water Dispenser

Save this important safety information!

This product dispenses water at temperatures up to 212˚F, which is hot enough to cause severe burns. Caution should be exercised when installing and using this product. Under no circumstances is this product to be altered in any way other than that which is specifically addressed in these instructions. Doing so may void your warranty.

Premature connection of the unit to an electrical supply could result in a “dry start” condition, which could damage the unit and void your warranty. The unit must be completely installed and the tank must be completely full with water running from the dispenser before plugging the unit in to an electrical supply.

Do not under any circumstances use bleach, abrasive liquids, powders or scouring pads to clean the faucet as doing so could void your warranty. Occasional cleaning with a soft cloth and warm soapy water is sufficient.

A hot water dispenser, like any water heater, has limited life and will eventually fail. To avoid possible property damage, a hot water dispenser should be regularly examined for leakage and replaced when necessary. A drain pan plumbed to an appropriate drain is highly recommended in those applications where any leakage could cause property damage.

Planning, Preparation and Tools

Things to check before you begin:

Can you make the cold water connection?

If not, you may want to consult a qualified plumber, and have an appropriate plumbing fitting installed.

Do you know where you want to locate the faucet and tank? If you have to drill through the sink or countertop, you will need to rent or purchase the appropriate tools.

(See Step 3)

Do you have a grounded electrical outlet under the sink?

If not, you will need to have electrical service installed by a qualified electrician. For safety, GFCI’s (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) are recommended.

Make sure you have room. Ensure that the area where you install the dispenser allows room for the handles to actuate fully and for the neck to swivel. About 3" of clearance behind the dispenser faucet should be enough.

This installation should take 2 hours and be accomplished easily, even if you have no prior electrical or plumbing experience. Read the installation manual first, and be sure to plan ahead for any tools or parts you may need.

Tools you may need include:

A pan or tub to catch drips, a rag or towel, a cordless drill, phillips and flat head screwdrivers (or phillips and flat head screwdriver bits for your cordless drill), an adjustable wrench,

pliers, a utility knife, a pencil, a ruler, a tube bender, a tube cutter, and finally cord ties or wraps to keep the tubing and cabling tight and out of the way.


Plumbing & Electrical Requirements

Plumbing: Be sure that any plumbing connections conform to your applicable local codes. The water supply line pressure should be at least 30 psi (pounds per square inch). Low water pressure can cause water to drip from the spout.

Electrical: The hot water tank should have power supplied to it at all times. It should not be controlled by the same wall switch that operates your disposer. If the outlet supplying power is controlled by a switch and also supplies power to another appliance (such as your food waste disposer), theIn-Sink-EratorSinkTopSwitch can be used to avoid electrical wiring changes.

The SinkTopSwitch conveniently switches power between two electrical outlets, which allows the hot water dispenser and food waste disposer to be connected to the same electrical outlet. Consult your local plumbing supplier for more information, or

Electric Shock Hazard. A standard grounded outlet within 30" of the dispenser is required under the sink for the dispenser’s requirements. Do not use an extension cord set with this water heater. If no receptacle is available adjacent to the water heater, contact a qualified electrician to have one properly installed. Size electrical supply appropriately. Ensure that all electrical wiring and connections conform to applicable codes.

Personal Injury. The faucet dispenses water up to 212˚F, whichcan instantly cause scalds or burns. Use care when operating this appliance.

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.

Personal Injury. This tank is anon-pressuretank. Do not modify this system. Do not close vent tube or connect other type dispensers or valves to the tank. Use only the dispenser faucet supplied. Use only parts provided. Contact an authorizedIn-Sink-EratorService agent for repairs or replacement components.

The Installation, page 2 of 5

Note: Screws provided are designed for mounting into hardwood or studs. It may be necessary to use appropriate anchors when mounting to thin surfaces or drywall.

5. Connecting the Tank to the Dispenser Faucet

Product Damage. Make sure bends in all copper tubing are smooth and unkinked, with no pinching, twisting, or blockage

before you proceed. Pinched or blocked water lines may cause damage to the dispenser tank. Do not extend the copper lines further than the 16" provided.

Push the 1/4" semi-rigidpolyethylene tube all the way to the mechanical stop (approx. 1/2") into thequick-connectfitting (Fig. 1). Slip the clear vinyl tube over the middle fitting and slide it down the stem past both of it’s molded barbs, approximately 1/2" (Fig. 2). Slip the flexible opaque silicone tube over the larger outlet fitting and slide it down the stem past both of it’s molded barbs, approximately 1/2". (Fig. 3).












6. Mount the Head & Filter Bracket

Install the head and bracket assembly so that all plumbing connections can be made without stretching, kinking, or pinching the 3/8" polyethylene tubes.The tubes can be cut to make installation easier. Make sure the mounting location allows for the filter cartridge to be removed and replaced.

With a pencil, mark the mounting hole locations. Pre-drillingpilot holes (1/8”) may be required. Attach the mounting bracket using the screws provided. (Screws provided are designed for mounting into hardwood or studs. It may be necessary to use appropriate anchors when mounting to thin surfaces or drywall.

The filter system is equipped with vent line that opens when the filter cartridge is removed. Under normal conditions, approximately 2 ounces (~60 cc) of water is discharged from the vent. To conveniently redirect this discharge, a 6” section of gray tubing is provided. If you wish to install, simply slide one end of the gray tube over the vent and the other end into the hole on the head & bracket assembly.

Note: Do not locate the filter directly above an electrical outlet or above other electrical components.


The Installation, page 3 of 5

7. Make Plumbing Connections

With all of the components secured in place, the tubing connections can be made. When routing the tubing between components, several guidelines should be observed:

Tubing runs should generally follow the contour of the cabinet rather than interfere with the cabinet storage area.

Arrange the tubing so that there are no sharp bends. Leave some extra length in the tubing for ease of servicing, then cut tubing to the desired length.

Insert tubes completely into all quick-connectfittings to the stop (minimum depth of 1/2").

The polyethylene tubes can be cut, but caution should be exercised to ensure that a clean (burr-free)cut is made perpendicular to the tube.

Completely insert 3/8" polyethylene tubing into inlet side of filter head.

Completely insert 3/8" polyethylene tubing into outlet side of filter head.

Model GN1100

Completely insert 3/8" polyethylene tubing from outlet side of filter head into 3/8" to 1/4 quickconnectunion fitting.

Completely insert 3/8" polyethylene tubing from outlet side of filter head into 3/8" to 1/4" quick-connect"Y" fitting. Completely insert both dispenser faucet copper tubes (marked with white tape and unmarked) into thequick-connect"Y" fitting.

To remove a tube from its quick-connectfitting, depress the release ring into the fitting and gently pull the tube away from the fitting.

8. Connect to Cold Water Supply Line

Supplied with the unit is a brass nut, ferrule and tube insert to connect the polyethylene tube from the input side of the filter to a standard 3/8" compression fitting. Other plumbing connections are possible – check with a qualified plumber should you have questions.

Slide the nut and ferrule over the tube and then push in the tube insert. Insert the tube into a standard 3/8" compression fitting (not supplied) and tighten. Be careful not to over tighten.

Note: Connect the filter to the cold water supply only.

9. Fill the Tank

Turn on the water supply. Push the dispenser’s HOT handle and hold it to fill the tank.

Nothing will happen until the tank fills up and water begins coming out of the faucet.The water will be cold because the


Run the faucet for 3 minutes to flush the filter before initial use.


The Installation, page 5 of 5

10. Test the Water Connection

Test the water connection to see if it is watertight. If it is not, relieve water pressure by turning off the water supply, and adjust or tighten fittings as necessary. Note that water must flow from the dispenser faucet to test all connections.

Note: Ensure both hot and cold side are checked on the HC model.


11. Plug in the Tank

Once the tank is plugged in, it will take between 10 and 15 minutes for the water to reach its target temperature. During the heating cycle, you can expect to hear gurgling or hissing sounds within the tank.This is normal.

Electric Shock Hazard. This appliance must be properly grounded. Using an ungrounded appliance can result in serious injury or death from electric shock. Improper connection of theequipment-groundingconductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance. If it will not fit in the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Care and Use

To Adjust the Thermostat:

Electric Shock Hazard. To prevent electrical shock, disconnect power before removing access cover to service the thermostat.

Scalding Hazard. Do not allow water to boil. May result in severe burns.

On the front of the tank there is an access panel. Unscrew the holding screw and locate the temperature control dial.

The thermostat is pre-setat the factory to approximately 190˚ F. If a thermostat adjustment is required, turn knob clockwise 1/2 dial mark to increase the water temperature and counterclockwise 1/2 dial mark to decrease the water temperature.


Care and Use

Once you have made the adjustment, actuate the dispenser handle for 20 seconds and allow the water to re-heatat the new temperature setting. If the temperature is still too hot or too cold, continue to make slight adjustments. At no time should the water in the tank be allowed to boil. Boiling is indicated by water and/or steam discharged from the faucet without actuating the handle.

Replace the access panel.

To Reset the Thermal Cut-Out:

In the event the unit stops heating or fails to heat the water, check the thermal cutout as it may have tripped. Open the access panel on the front of the tank with a screwdriver. Locate the thermal cut-outreset button and press it to reset the switch.

Replacement Filter Guidelines: It is essential that regular filter replacement be carried out for this product to perform as advertised. Replace the cartridge every three months or when there is an obvious decrease in water flowing from the faucet or when objectionable taste and/or odors return. Replace withIn-Sink-Erator® brand filter cartridges. Flush new cartridges for 3 minutes before first use.

Electric Shock Hazard. To prevent electrical shock, disconnect power before servicing unit. Use only a properly grounded and polarized electric outlet.

To Replace the Filter:

Place a pan or dish-towelunder the filter to catch water drainage during the cartridge change.

Slowly turn cartridge counter-clockwisecompletely until it stops (approx. 90º or 1/4 turn). At this position, the inlet and outlet ports have been closed and the filter’s internal pressure has been relieved. Approximately 2 oz. of water will be discharged from the vent line. Pull used cartridge straight out and discard.

Insert new cartridge into filter head.Top surface of cartridge will become flush with bottom of filter head when fully engaged.Turn cartridge clockwise until it stops (approx 90º or 1/4 turn). If the new filter cartridge cannot be inserted, insert the old filter cartridge and turn completely until it stops and the arrow on the head and bracket assembly aligns with the in/out arrow on the cartridge.

Open hot water faucet to expel trapped air and allow water to run 3 minutes.
