I have an Insinkerator HC1100. When I operate the hot tap

Resolved Question:

I have an Insinkerator HC1100. When I operate the hot tap and then release it to shut off I get a small amount of hot water ousing out of the top of the tap cover.

Hi, is the water coming from the hot tap only?
Also how old is your insinkerator?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes - its just from the hot tap. There's about a teaspoon of water (or perhaps less) that ouses out when the tap is shut off - then it stops. There is no water leaking down the pipework (under the worktop) from the tap.

Thanks Andrew,
Also how old is it?

Sorry - its 6 years old. As an aside, I replaced the main 'boiler' component about 2 years ago.

Thats ok Andrew thanks for that information.
The problem is that the seals are worn and need replacing. if you want o make this repair I will assist you with that, all you will need are some basic hand tools and to be a bit handy.
If so please visit this site for the rebuild kit. its not very difficult to do.

If you don't want to make the repair you would need a plumber to fix this for you.
I will stick with you until the unit is fixed properly.
But please rate my service thus far to you before closing this page.
