HOW DO I KNOW IF MY ELECTRICAL OUTLET INCLUDES A GFCI?
GFCI outlets include two small buttons, usually located between insertion points. One button (frequently colored black) is for testing the GFCI’s proper functionality and the other (frequently red in color) is for restoring normal power flow after a test. GFCIs should be tested monthly to assure proper function.
I have some Viking wine refrigerator that's making some loud noises. It's about 14 years old and showing some issues.
Yes, we have Viking technicians to handle your appliances. We have a service call fee, which pays for the technician to travel to your home, inspect your unit and tell you what's wrong. Any repairs will be authorized by you, and the technician will give you the exact estimate for the repairs. That will be waived if you proceed with the repairs. I booked you an appointment for tomorrow from 12 to 3 PM. Our technician will arrive with a fully-stocked vehicle that carries common replacement parts. We accept debit and credit cards and checks regarding our mode of payment. Please keep your phone lines active since our technicians will call you 30 minutes before their arrival.
I just spoke with Kevin. This is Nicole. We had an appointment today, but the technician had to go to the hospital for his wife's birth, so we rescheduled it for tomorrow. The boss asked me to narrow it down. Instead of 12 to 3, she wants it from 11 to 12 PM or 1 to 3 PM. This is for the stove.
I can help you with that. We give 3-hour windows for our technicians to do other jobs. But don't worry since our technicians will give you a call once they're on their way.
Are there things I shouldn’t be flushing down the toilet?
We get this question a lot, and the answer is that you shouldn’t be flushing anything down the toilet besides your waste and a small amount of toilet paper. Toilet paper is made to naturally break down once flushed while many other options will not, damaging your septic system or causing clogs. Avoid flushing the following items down any toilet: Tampons/pads Diapers Baby wipes Paper towels Facial tissue Dental floss Q-tips Cotton balls Hair Food Cat litter Are there things I shouldn’t be putting down my garbage disposal? There are many things we encourage homeowners never to put down a garbage disposal. Some of these include the following: Eggshells Bone fragments Potato skins Banana peels Fruit pits/seeds Onion skins Popcorn kernels String vegetables Grease/fats
I just had a service earlier this year, but I have another appliance that needs to be repaired. It's a KitchenAid oven, the model is called Superba, it's a built-in single oven. It doesn't heat and is approximately 20 years old.
We can send a specialist today between 11am and 2pm. Let me remind you how we work. We have a service call fee for the visit, that is for a full physical diagnostic of the unit. And once you decide to proceed with us, the service call fee will be waived. You can pay us with a debit or credit card or with a check; we do not accept cash for now. And the specialist will call you half an hour before the arrival. Please keep your phone active.
Can I replace a four-prong plug with a three-prong plug?
The National Electric Code (NEC) requires new installations to provide a second neutral on all 220V appliances. You can replace the four-prong cord with a three-prong cord, but the safer option would be to upgrade the electrical supply to your 220V appliances.
