No Power?

  • Check your electricity supplier. There may be a planned outage or a fault in the street or suburb that you are not aware of.
  • Check the safety switch. An appliance may have tripped the switch in the meter box. If so, simply reset the switch.
  • If the safety switch trips again, unplug all of your appliances and plug them in one at a time until the faulty appliance is located.
  • If you have a fuse box, check for a blown fuse.
  • Replace the light globe if necessary.

Plumbing issues?

  • For any sink blockages, try bi-carb soda, vinegar, draino or hot water. Generally the blockage is caused by old soap or hair.
  • To eliminate a foul smell coming from the floor waste grate, try pouring boiling water down the floor grate. This will force stagnant water out of the ‘S’ bend. Usually 2-3 litres is enough.

Oven not working?

  • Check that the power isolation switch is turned on. This can typically be found on the kitchen splashback or near the power points.
  • Set the clock on the display panel. Some ovens will not work if the clock is not set.
  • Ensure the timer is off. Some ovens won’t work if the timer countdown is still set.

Cooktop not working?

  • Gas: Check the connections to make sure they’re not loose and/or dirty.
  • Electric: Check the power is connected and turned on at the meter box.
  • Test all of the elements to isolate which one is not working.
