First, you need to make sure that the unit is properly plugged in. If it’s not, then you may have to disconnect it from the wall. In order to do this, you will need to remove the power cord and unplug it. Make sure you are wearing gloves and a mask when you are doing this. 

Before you start cleaning your Primo water cooler, you should have a replacement water bottle on hand. This is important because you cannot dispense water if the bottle is not properly sealed. You will also need to rinse the bottle with baking soda before each use. 

You should then clean the inside and outside surfaces of the water cooler. You can do this with a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge. To clean the exterior, you can use a cleaning solution such as a mixture of white vinegar and warm water. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the outside of your water cooler as it may scratch or break the surfaces. 

After rinsing the interior and exterior parts of your water cooler, you can then replace the parts. However, you should consult with the manufacturer before doing this, especially if you are unsure of the model. 

Aside from the cooler itself, you should also clean the nozzle. The nozzle is a high-touch surface that is easily clogged. If you notice that the nozzle is clogged, you can clean it with a towel and hot soapy water. Once you have removed the clog, you should scrub it with a brush. 

You can also clean the baffle. The baffle is a disc-shaped part. You can clean it with a long-handled brush. 

Finally, you should also clean the filter. The filter is likely clogged and may need to be replaced. Depending on the model, you can either rinse the filter or run it through the filtered water cycle. Leaving the filter clogged can cause bad tasting water. 

When you have finished cleaning the dispenser, you will need to flush the solution away. You can place the rinse water in the toilet or you can drain it into a bucket. 

Your primo water dispenser should be cleaned every three months. This will ensure that the water is clean and it will be safe for you and your family to drink. Remember that maintaining a clean dispenser will extend its lifespan and also prevent other health problems. Keeping your dispenser in good condition will also help you prevent lime-scale build-up and other bacterial infections. 

While you are cleaning your water cooler, you should take care not to spill the cleaning solution on the nozzle or the inside of the tank. Depending on your model, you can use a cleaning solution or a mixture of distilled white vinegar and hot water.
