Hi my name is Mike, I will be assisting you with this problem.Please allow me some time to do research and type a response to each of your posts.

Yes this can be repaired but it will be costly, The problem here is the thermostat has failed, The thermostat will cost around $40 then you have to basically break the machine down to get to the thermostat to replace it, If you were to hire some one to replace the thermostat you would be paying around $160 for parts and labor. Unfortunately when these water dispensers go wrong it's better to replace then repair since they only cost around $120 new :(
