Good Morning Westwood Suites Residents!
Here at Westwood Suites our maintenance team is always available to assist you with any issues in your apartment home. It's helpful for you to know that there are some issues that might only require a simple fix on your part. I would like to share some helpful maintenance tips that could not only help you solve what might be a minor problem but also prevent what might turn into a bigger problem if left unattended.
My dishwasher will not drain.
Try starting it over again. If this does not work contact the Leasing Office.
My dishwasher is not getting dishes clean.
This could be caused by overloading. Try taking some of the dishes out and do not cover the power tower cleaner located in the center of the dishwasher. If you put too many pots and pans on the bottom rack the water will not be able to get to the dishes on the top rack.
My refrigerator is not getting cold enough.
Make sure that the thermostat has not been turned down and the door is shutting all the way. Also, overloading a refrigerator will prevent air circulation and therefore cause some areas to be colder than others.
My power is off.
Check the breakers - If that does not work contact the Leasing Office.
My lights are not working.
If the problem is not the breakers, it could be the light bulb. Some light bulbs can be bad when you get them and may not last very long.
Need a new A/C filter? Stop by the Leasing Office anytime to pick-up a new one.
My tub or sink is stopped up.
You can use a plunger to unstop a sink. When a tub is stopped up, it is usually caused by hair stuck in the top of the drain. If this happens, you can pull the hair out with a pair of needle nose pliers.
The water in my sink or tub will not shut off.
If the water in your sink, tub, or toilet will not shut off, try turning the cut off valve, located under the sink or behind the toilet, clockwise until the water stops running. If this does not work please contact the Leasing Office.
We hope these maintenance tips will help you troubleshoot any issues that may arise. Remember, we are always here to assist you and if you cannot fix an issue please contact the Leasing Office at 407-238-9500.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Monday!
