Garbage Disposer

When your garbage disposer didn’t work, first of all, check that it gets electricity. If you see that there is no electricity press the thermal overload button. Flip the wall switch and your disposer should be working again.
If after flipping the wall switch the motor hums then you should immediately unplug the disposer. You should have an Allen wrench that comes with your disposer. Insert that wrench into a hole at the bottom of the disposer. Then you should turn the disposer back and forth to loosen the jam. The next step is to run the water into the sink, turn on the disposer and then it should be working smoothly again.
Another problem with the disposer could be its overloaded motor that gets too hot. Give it a time to cool. When you see that it is cooled enough just push the reset button.

Refrigerator

If you find that your refrigerator doesn’t cool the first thing that you should do is to check coils which could be filled with garbage or hair. Many experts say that this is the reason for most of the service calls. If the coils are filled they will cause to an overheated compressor. And now, you must clean the coil with the special brush. The cleaned coils will help the refrigerator to turn back on again.
