WASHINGTON, Dc. -

Waterlogic is recalling some Chiller-based water dispensers because they are a fire hazard.

About 48,000 units are being recalled because the hot water tank can stop functioning and cause the machine to overheat, posing a fire hazard.

Waterlogic is contacting its distributors and providing a list of affected units and technical instructions to fix the units. Consumers who have not been contacted by their distributor for a free repair should contact Waterlogic at 855-905-2002 from9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the website at www.waterlogic.us and click on the "Maintenance and Service" link.

Sixteen incidents of fire and smoke within the water dispensers have been reported. The affected units were sold through distributors and dealers, including AquaPure Water Systems, Culligan, CWC, Farmer Brothers, Filterfresh, First Choice Services and others selling water and coffee systems nationwide from January 2005 to December 2008 for approximately $500 to $1500.  The units are sold to dealers and leased to consumers.

One of the following brand names is printed on the front of the unit: AquaMark, Coolersmart, Culligan, Innowave, Waterlogic and Xstream Water. Recalled products have serial numbers printed on a label on the back of the machines.
