GE Profile Tri Temperature water dispenser will not heat water

Will not heat water, even though hot water switch is in on position (l). Water dispenser is plugged in. Instructions warned that hot water function would be destroyed if hot water tank ran dry. This never happened. Unit purchased Sept 2004. House fuse is not blown. (Electrical outlet functioning & green light on unit is "on") Checked to see if temperature limiter was tripped by setting hot switch to off (O) for five minutes, and then set to on (l) for 30 minutes. Red hot indicator light on front of unit does not turn on indicating heating cycle.

Overload switch

If the wall socket has power, check to see if there's an overload switch on the hot water dispenser housing. If there is, reset the switch (usually by pressing it in), wait 15 minutes, then try the tap and see if the water coming out is hot. If there's no overload switch, there may be an internal fuse on the unit. To see that, you need to remove screws and a panel.

Heating element

If there's no overload switch--or if the unit still doesn't heat--the heating element may be burned out. If so, it may be replaceable. We would need your Model number to find the correct parts.

It is GE Profile PXCR33KSS Hot and Cold Water Dispenser Cooler. I see three lights are green, but only the cooler is working while the hot line is regular. I think the heating element may be burned out. Please let me know how to order its "heating element"? Part number and what website? Thank you so much for your help. God bless you for always.

The heating element seems to be the problem most of the time. Good luck finding a part though, unit designed to be thrown away.

The green light is on, but red one is not, even I switched the position between O and I several times. I always kept a water bottle on it.
