A water cooler having a container with a reservoir for storing water has a thermoelectric module operable to cool a conductor plate and form ice in the reservoir. A temperature sensor connected to the plate senses the temperature of the plate and activates a timer when the temperature is below the temperature at which water freezes. The timer operates a selected period of time to allow a block of ice to be formed on the plate. A photoelectric sensor operable to sense a selected size of the block of ice functions to actuate a switching device that changes...


1. A water cooler for producing ice to cool water comprising: a container having a side wall and bottom wall providing a reservoir for storing water, a cup-shaped member mounted on the bottom wall, said cup-shaped member having a bottom wall and an upper end open to the reservoir whereby the cup-shaped member accommodates water, a heat conducting member mounted on the bottom wall of the cup-shaped member, said heat conducting member having a top surface exposed to the water in the cup-shaped member and a bottom surface spaced from the top surface, a ther...
