Some More Roadblocks

Yesterday evening it began pouring. And before we went to bed, there was a pool of water emerging from the floor near the fridge. It didn't seem to be coming from the fridge (we checked) and we haven't yet used the washer or dryer, which are brand new and have been connected by professionals. So we assume it's the foundation of our condo. That, along with the electricity, is turning out to be a problem.
The electrician installed a beautiful ceiling fan in the bedroom, which gets very hot when one turns on the heat. But it soon stopped working with the remote and then began going on and off by itself. Uh Oh! The electrician cannot return till Monday. This is turning out to be a very very expensive job.

Welcome to home ownership. Hope all the kinks are straightened out soon.

We have some interesting neighbors. One is a computer whiz who was one of the designers of the router I am using on my computer. He is now out of work.
The other is a Serbian blues-fan. Both are very knowledgeable about all kinds of things, including these houses, and one of them came in and told us the water WAS coming from the disconnected ice-maker of the fridge, which has not been capped off properly. He fixed it.
Now the washer won't start. It's the weekend, so the likelihood of getting to do wash is not good. I could call the store I bought the washer from, but I think they are going to tell me to call the manufacturer, who isn't available on the weekend. Maybe tomorrow morning early I can get someone.
