Waterlogic Water Cooler Recall Issued After Reports of Fires

Waterlogic has recalled about 48,000 chiller-based water dispensers after multiple reports were received involving smoke and fires that may have been caused by malfunctioning hot water tanks.   

A Waterlogic water cooler recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on September 17, after at least 16 consumer complaints were filed involving the dispenser’s hot water tank failing. Although these reports involved machines overheating and creating smoke or fires, no injuries have been reported to date.

The recall includes chiller-based water filtration systems that provide hot and cold water, commonly used at home or in the workplace. The dispensers were sold in white, black, or stainless steel and come in 18, 40, or 48 inch high sizes.
