Find main breaker box and open. Flip tripped circuit breakers and hit reset button, to see if that fixes problem. Call owner at 843-301-7203, if can’t find breaker box or need electrician.
Air Conditioning and Heating:
Our HVAC systems are new in each home rental. Please turn off a/c and heat before you leave, as well as all electrical devices, lamps, appliances, etc. before you leave. Fan should be in the auto on position and system should be in the on cool or on heat position for maximum efficiency. Please lower settings gradually 2-3 degrees at a time, every 30 min. or so. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE WINDOWS OR DOORS OPEN WHEN AC OR HEAT IS ON, AS IT WILL OVERWORK HVAC SYSTEM AND COULD CAUSE IT TO DUMP WATER ON FLOOR AND SHUT OFF ON HIGH WATER. If system will not come on, please check appropriate breaker to see if tripped and turn back on and off once, and then on again to reset.
Refrigerator and Freezer:
Our refrigerator systems are new in each home rental. On check-in Day, the refrigerator has been opened for an extended period of time to clean and empty, then it is filled with warm groceries by you. It will take at least 12 hours to cool your food and return to a medium temperature. Please keep the settings on normal or medium for maximum efficiency! Please do not turn up settings to high or maximum, as this will cause refrigerator / freezer to overwork and malfunction, as the coils will ice up and shut down. Then it will take ~1 day to defrost and get cool again without a repairman. Avoid frequent opening and closing of the refrigerator door during your first evening. This will help stabilize the refrigerator and your groceries will cool faster.
Washer / Dryer:
Please do not overload. Please be sure to clean out the lint filter in dryer before every use. If the washer or dryer does not have any power, please check circuit breaker in main disconnect box and trip / reset, if needed. Be sure to report any leaks immediately to owner and turn off water to washer! Make sure doors are fully closed before trying to operate. Please do not stop washer until it completes all cycles and has fully stopped. Then, please wait at least 3 min. after washer has fully stopped before opening door, as solenoid has it locked (OP #1208 condo only). Press and hold power and start to clear memory on washer computer (OP #1208 condo only). Please use ½ of normal soap amount only to prevent soap lock up. Washers are delicate, please be gentle.
Please use automatic dishwasher detergent only. The use of regular detergent will cause the dishwasher to overflow with soap suds on floor. If the dishwasher does not have any power, please check circuit breaker in main disconnect box and trip / reset, if needed.
Always have water running when using disposal. Push only small amounts of food only into the disposal with water running at all times. If disposal stops working or gets clogged. Try the following: Hit reset button on disposal unit under sink. If still does not work. Turn off circuit breaker to disposal at breaker box. Use end of broom handle in closet, etc. to stir or turn disposal teeth in drain to free disposal up. This will free up any clog typically and what plumbers generally do as troubleshooting first. Then turn power to disposal back on and retry. If still does not work, please call owner.
Range / Oven:
Some of our ovens are self cleaning, but others are not. If the door is locked, the oven will not work. If this occurs, please make sure the cycle is finished and the oven has cooled, then check for a release switch that will unlock the door. Burners sometime become unplugged during the cleaning process. Please check for disconnected plugs, if the burner does not come on. Most of our ranges are flat top stoves with no plugs.

Some tv’s have cable box that is required for cable service through resort or a private company. Please make sure the TV is set on channel 3 or 4 and that the TV is on. You can do this manually, if remote is out of batteries. Turn TV off and on and change channels by using the cable box or remote.
