Maintenance Requests

Dear Resident,

There are two types of Maintenance Requests:

  • Emergency Requests – call our office and if after hours call the emergency number listed below. If you do not receive a call back within 30 minutes, please call again and speak your phone number very slowly and clearly. If you do not receive a call back within an hour, your request likely is not an emergency as defined above and you will be called back the next business day. Emergency after hours number: (215) 953-0364 

  • Normal non-emergency requests – fill out our online form or leave a message at (215) 953-0364. If you are like most residents you will be anxious to have your repair done. Non-emergency repairs are scheduled and completed typically between 1 and 3 business days after the day you call. We will call you and let you know which day we should be out. Sometimes, we will not make the repair that day because of an emergency repair that popped up, maintenance person became ill, or other normal delays. You will receive a call the next day. Please do not leave multiple messages. You will receive a call back on your maintenance request within one business day.

  • Emergency is defined as: Anything relating to the property under the lease that is threatening to life, health or the integrity of the property.

Following are some basic guidelines as to what constitutes a maintenance emergency.

  • Fire: Call the Fire Department immediately.
  • A/C Repair: By Pennsylvania Law, A/C repair is not considered an emergency. Also keep in mind it is very dangerous to try and fix an AC at night or in the rain due to the possibility of getting electrocuted.  We do understand this can be extremely uncomfortable and we will schedule the repair on the day you call or the following day. Just like if you owned your own house, when it is hot there are a lot of AC’s out there breaking. You might have to wait for the AC tech to get to you after he finished 6 or 7 previous appointments.
  • Heater Repair: If outside temperature is falling below 40 degrees.
  • Pipe Broken: Turn off water valve to pipe or exterior water main until contractor arrives. We will respond very quickly to this.
  • Broken Doorknob, Lock or Window: Only if it prevents Resident from properly securing unit. If temporary measures can be taken until business hours, resident should wait until regular business hours before contacting management.
  • No Electricity: Only if there is no electricity and 1.) The Resident has called the electric company and found that they were not at fault. 2.) After Resident has checked all the breakers by flipping them ALL hard to the OFF position and then back on and reset all GFI circuits in the house. Partial outages do not represent an emergency! If a wall switch or outlet begins to smoke or smell remove all plugs and turn off switch if necessary call the fire department.
These are the basic calls that may constitute an emergency. If you have a situation other than these, which seems immediately hazardous, damaging or detrimental, please call our office and ask for maintenance. If after hours, our 24-hour answering service will answer your call. This will be a live person.

If you have not received a call back within 30 minutes please dial again to insure we received the correct number. Those situations which are not an emergency should be explained using our online form. Our voicemail is checked twice a day during the week. Calls are returned usually the same day but sometimes will be completed the next morning.


Non-emergency, routine maintenance

The following are not emergencies:

  • No Hot Water, Clogged Toilet or Drain
  • Refrigerator out, oven not working and pest control. Small Leak in Toilet or Shower, Burner out in Stove
  • Broken Appliances
  • Small water leaks that do not gush water all over the floor
Please feel free to use our online maintenance request form on the right side of the page to submit any maintenance issues.

Helpful Tips for Troubleshooting

Before submitting a maintenance request, please read below troubleshooting guidelines. Completing these steps can save you co-pay. Tenants may be charged for a service call if the service person determines that the tenant failed to perform routine maintenance task as outlined below:

    Smoke Detector won't work when tested: Test with approved smoke detector smoke spray, replace battery.
    Smoke Detector beeps: Replace battery, check for proper wire termination connection.
No power to plugs or switches: Check and reset breaker panel or replace blown fuses.
Check and reset all GFI outlets; they are located in kitchen, bathrooms, utility rooms, and garages.
Check all breakers, flip them hard to the OFF position and then hard to the ON position. Replace any blown fuses.
Garbage disposal doesn't work: When on, do you hear a buzz? If you do not hear a buzz, hit the reset button on the bottom of the disposal and test.
If you hear a buzz, turn off disposal and unplug from wall. Mounted on the side of the disposal or side of cabinet may be an allen wrench. Put the wrench in the center shaft and twist back and forth (this un-jams the disposal). Remove the object that is causing the obstruction, turn back on, and test. Repeat until the object is removed.
Hot water is too hot: Check thermostat on tank and turn down.
No hot water: Check thermostat on tank for proper temperature setting. Check that thermostat is not set to "vacation". Check and reset breaker in power panel. Check and reset button next to thermostat.
Turn off water fixture, turn off water at supply line and call Onyx Management hotline immediately.
Check thermostat. Check that furnace covers are in properly. Check that a switch that looks like an ordinary light switch is turned on (it is located in or near the furnace room). Did you pay your utilities or issue and order to disconnect the utility?
Dishwasher grinds or no water is coming in: Turn off, if no water on the bottom pour two large glasses of water into the bottom and re-start. If problem continues, call our office or submit a maintenance request and discontinue use.
Toilet is plugged: Plunge and test.
Refrigerator too warm or too cold: Check thermostat in refrigerator is set correctly.
Water drips from freezer to refrigerator compartment: Remove all food and store in a cooler. Turn off refrigerator and allow to defrost. Turn refrigerator back on and replace food.
