Resolved Question:

Checked the hose, cleaned the screen. Now the hot water is at least drizzling out. There must be a clog somewhere inside-can I get to that?

what model number do you have so I can better assist you? and have you checked to make sure there is actually sufficient pressure coming into the unit?

well if you are getting good pressure coming into your unit there is no way to clogg or kink the exiting water-- the hose is about 1 inch long that goes into a flat cone shamped water dispenser. It sounds like your valve is not opening up all the way and unfortunately this happens all to often.

Here is the part number you will need to replace if you've determined the water pressure coming into the unit is adequate.
