What you should do when an bad day for appliances plagues you

The garbage disposal is jammed; the gas burner’s cooked; you’re afraid to give the dishwasher a look. What can you do? When a bad day for appliances is plaguing you, try these simple fixes: For the disposal, make sure the power is off. Then open the cabinet and look on the bottom of the disposal housing. You’ll see a hole for a hex wrench that you can use to manually unjam the blades.

For the stove, the problem might be clogged burners from dropped food and grease. Clear them with a toothpick so they burn free. For the dishwasher, if it’s OK for the moment, run it weekly to keep seals and gaskets moist and put a teaspoon of mineral oil inside on the bottom for the days in between. Then — with your kitchen once again humming along — you can relax and start singing a happy song.
