Hot Water Tap Leak

Post by lorennoyes » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:34 am

So I have a Mini II (3yr old) that started dripping water from the hot water tap. I placed a glass under it last night and would say I got about an ounce of water within 12 hours. So my question is, before I start tearing it apart, is this a common issue and do you know what it probably is?

Thanks for the help guys!

I have found that the solenoid valve for the hot water tends to develop scale that makes it drip. Open the valve and clean with white vinegar and you should be set again.

I've been living with that leak for a long time. I'm going to fix it now dammit!
