Read through the common issues below before making your repair request.
Smoke detector won’t work when tested
Test with approved smoke detector smoke spray. If necessary, replace battery. Check and reset breaker panel or replace blown fuses.
Smoke detector beeps
Replace battery. Check for proper wire termination connection. Check and reset breaker panel or replace blown fuses.
No power to plugs or switches
Check and reset breaker panel or replace blown fuses. Check and rest all GFI outlets (located in kitchen, bathrooms, utility rooms, and garages). Check if plug works off a wall switch.
Garbage disposal doesn’t work
When on, do you hear a buzz? If you do not hear a buzz, hit the reset button on the bottom of the disposal and test. If you hear a buzz, turn off disposal and unplug from wall. Mounted on the side of the disposal or side of cabinet may be an allen wrench. Put the wrench in the center shaft and twist back and forth (this un-jams the disposal). Remove the object that is causing the obstruction, turn back on, and test. Repeat until the object is removed.
No hot water
Check thermostat on tank for proper temperature setting. Check that thermostat is not set to “vacation”. Check and reset breaker in power panel. Check and reset button next to thermostat.
Hot water is too hot
Check thermostat on tank and turn down
Plumbing or fixtures leak
Turn off water fixture, turn off water at supply line and notify Landlord immediately.

Plunge and test
Check batteries in thermostat. Check that furnace filters are in properly and that they are clean; we recommend changing the filters every three months. Tenants will be charged for heating repairs caused by dirty or missing filters. Check that a switch that looks like an ordinary light switch is turned on (located in or near the furnace room). Did you pay your utilities or issue and order to disconnect the utility?
Dishwasher won’t drain
Clean food out of bottom of dishwasher. Check garbage disposal.
Dishwasher grinds or no water is coming in
Turn off, if no water on the bottom pour two large glasses of water into the bottom and re-start. If problem continues, call Landlord and discontinue use.

Check thermostat in refrigerator is set correctly.
Water drips from freezer to refrigerator compartment
Remove all food and store in a cooler. Turn off refrigerator and allow to defrost. Turn refrigerator back on and replace food.

Check all circuit breakers. Clean and replace filters and test. Tenants will be charged for air conditioning repairs caused by dirty or missing filters.
Check all breakers; flip them hard to the OFF position and then hard to the ON position. Check all GFI in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry room, and garage. Replace any blown fuses. Call Idaho Power at 388-2323.
