No Water?

Check meter, has it been turned off? Check with your neighbours/other residents. Perhaps there are temporary works within the complex. Call your water company to ensure it hasn’t been turned off in the street.

No Hot Water?

Is the unit gas? If so, has the pilot light gone out that you are able to relight? Check with your water company water hasn’t been switched off in the street or your gas company if the unit is gas.

Check the unit itself, if it’s an electric instantaneous and showing an error code, trouble shoot with an instruction manual also try switching the HWS mains switch off for a few minutes and back on again to see if this resets.

If an outdoor unit, is water coming out of the unit? If so a plumber is required, if it's an electric system an no water is coming out of it then chances are an electrician is needed, if gas then generally a plumber is required.

Water Leaks (Inside or Outside)

Please locate water mains and turn the lever off until a plumber can attend.

Blocked Drains or Sinks?

Have you cleaned out any hair? Have you tried a drain clearing product such as draino? Have you tried a plunger? The majority of blockages are caused by what is being put down the drains which will be renters’ responsibility if the cause is hair, food, oil etc.

No Gas?

Check your meter, has it been switched off? Contact your provider to ensure it hasn’t been switched off in the street If living in apartment buildings, check with the Owners Corporation that there are no faults in the building.

Gas Smell or Potential Leak?

Please locate gas main and turn the lever off until a plumber can attend. Please call emergency services if applicable.

Split Systems

Filters require cleaning/vacuuming on a regular basis, at least every 6 months. Batteries require changing in remotes, this can be the cause of units not working. Consult an instruction manual, is the unit on the correct setting?

Your Aircon will not work efficiently when it’s over 35 degrees outside. You will not be able to get the unit to cool your property to 18 degrees so do not expect this to happen. Please set to around 24 degrees on these extreme hot days to avoid damaging the unit.

Locks Stiff/Sticking

Use graphite to lubricate. Have you had a new key cut? It could not be quite the right fit.

Smoke Detector Beeping

Replace the battery if you can.

Oven Not Working

Is the child lock on (key symbol)? Have you set the timer? Some ovens require this to be done before they will work. If the timer is flashing, it needs to be set. Check mains to see if switch has tripped.

No Internet

Contact your provider.

Auto Garage/Gate Not Opening

Have you changed the batteries in the remote?
