Is this on and off cycle rapid and irregular? If so it may be loose control wiring or a bad thermostat.

If the Cycle is not rapid it may simply be trying to satisfy a heavy heat load.

    The first thing to do is to turn the unit off at the breaker and find the thermostat. Maybe the tenants broke it off the wall or something. If you can not find the thermostat than it is time to call in a contractor. It may have been broken off the wall, stolen or something.

"The Rental Housing Act [No.50 of 1999] provides for the establishment of Rental Housing Tribunals in all provinces of South Africa and grants them the authority to settle disputes between tenants and landlords. So far only three of the nine provinces have created housing tribunals, Gauteng, Western Cape, and North West.
Rental Housing Tribunals use the same procedures as a Labor Court and give rulings with the same power as those of a magistrate's court. The tribunal has 30 days to help the parties reach a solution. If any party is not satisfied with the proceedings of the tribunal, he may take the case to the High Court."

Renting and Paying the Gas Bill

This past week I changed out an old hot air furnace in a rental unit that made me question why the tenant did not go to the owner and offer to pay more rent in exchange for getting the furnace changed out sooner. If you are a renter that is paying the gas bill, then you need to think about this.
The hot air furnace was at least 60 years old. It had been coal fired furnace that was converted to gas many decades ago. The pilot light of this beast was more of a torch than a pilot light. When the thermostat called for heat the flame roared for 15 minutes before the exterior blower unit that was added when the furnace was converted to gas, started up to move air through the furnace and into the house.

As I was starting up the new unit, which took up less than 1/3 of the space of the old beast, the renter came and sat down on the basement steps looking on in amazement. How would that little thing make enough heat for the house? A few minutes later those questions were put to rest very quickly.

After starting the new furnace and burning off the oil that always smokes up the house a bit on a new startup the new little unit had the house warm as toast and was shutting down. Wow, that took less time than the old beast took to just warm up!

The renter related to me how that the old furnace cost over one hundred dollars a month just to run the pilot over the summer months. The wintertime heating bills were many times higher than that. The difference between the bills of the old unit and the bills that will be coming now will be unbelievable. A savings of 40-50% is not at all out of the question.

Now, if you are renting and are paying the bill to feed an old monster of a heating system, I suggest that you make a proposal to your landlord. Offer to pay a bit more rent in exchange for a new heating system. Not only will you decrease your gas bills enough to pay some extra rent and still come out ahead, but you will have the peace of mind that you have a safer heating system under the roof that you also live under.

We moved into a house and 2 months down the line realized it was full of black mould. I have a sickly daughter and the owner and rental agency refuse to do anything.

hi there.
i dont know where you live but i am in the uk,and its up to landlord to get it sorted out here in the uk.
your rental agency should have checked the house with the lanlord before they let the house.
just make sure you carry on paying any rent that way you are not breaking any he can not keep your deposit as its not your fault the black mould was already in the house by the sounds off it before you moved in.
so stand your ground on this and keep on at them they have to get it sorted if you have a sick daughter.
my son just went through what you are going through and he won.

Your landlord is always responsible for repairs to:
  • the property's structure and exterior.
  • basins, sinks, baths and other sanitary fittings including pipes and drains.
  • heating and hot water.
  • gas appliances, pipes, flues and ventilation.
  • electrical wiring.
  • any damage they cause by attempting repairs.
  • or go to this link and read up on your rights.
  • hope you get it sorted and yous daughter gets better soon.
  • go to this link for more info and your rights.

Elderly tenant unable to use oven as they don't know how to turn it on. elements work ok as new so what is the trick. manual not avl from owner of rental house

You have not mentioned the make model of the oven, whether it is gas or electric.
Please check for gas line, gas valve, gas regulator to open and ignite.
If electric make sure there is power at the outlet, if the circuit has tripped, check mains.
Please consult your landlord before you pull out any units as he could be the best help.

well the land lord is responsible to repair or replace a unit(appliance) that is offered in the rental agreement ,,this is his problem assuming that you did not abuse your machine IE kids taking a ride in it, filling the washer to the point the lid dos not close and so on lol i`m certain you are innocent of this,,,,,,,Right ?
at any rate coordinate your efforts to repair your unit with your landlord, i`m certain that any good landlord will be reluctant but obliged to have this situation ratified landlord ,,,,,your fault is most likly with the lid switch it is a safety feature built into all washing mashines to prevent the spining action to ocer with the lid oppen this is to provide a prevention to personal phisical injeries
