Bathroom & Kitchen Maintenance
Low faucet water pressure?
The aerator may be clogged. Twist off the end of the aerator (the tip of the faucet where the water comes out), clean it or tap it gently to remove particles and reinstall by screwing it back.
Hair and debris can often be removed from the drain stopper. The drain stopper piece can be removed and reinstalled quite easily. A common plunger can often clear the drain. DO NOT USE LIQUID PLUMBER!
Backed up toilet?
Purchase a plunger and use accordingly.
Toilet keeps running?
Try jiggling the handle. Open the tank lid and see if the chain or flapper is stuck in the open position. Adjust to close.
Turn switch off. There is a reset button on the bottom of the disposer and a place to insert an Allen Wrench to turn manually.
Fridge not cooling properly?
Over filling the freezer often causes this problem. Remove some items from the freezer and check control settings.
Dishwasher not cleaning dishes well?
It is possible that the hot water is not getting to the Dishwasher quick enough. So, run the hot water at the kitchen faucet for one minute before starting the dishwasher.
Often times this occurs because a resident doesn’t use the proper dishwashing detergent. Try running the dishwasher a few time to see if it goes away.
Light gas smell at kitchen?
Pilot lights may be out on the stove. Relight pilot.
