Official Walkthrough and Hints
After checking in and talking with your friend on the phone you find yourself in...
Click on the Dresser for a closer look.
Open the Drawer and take the REMOTE then Examine the REMOTE closely(right-click in inventory) - You quickly noticed it doesn't have any batteries. It might be nice to watch a little TV huh? Where could you find a battery in this room? Perhaps that smoke alarm over the door has one huh?
Take off the cover and then take the BATTERY - Examine the REMOTE and insert the BATTERY - press the RED BUTTON on REMOTE to turn on TV
Closeup of TV
Somethings wrong! The TV keeps shorting out and turning off. Take the BUCKET and touch the top of the TV. It's very HOT! Perhaps if you can cool down the TV so it won't short out and turn off so quickly. But how? Perhaps the last tenant put the empty bucket of ice on there for a reason?
Go to the Tub and take the BOLTCUTTERS then exit the tub and... Wait! What is that smell? Check out the trash can below the window. "Take out" huh? Take the MATCHES then examine them. It might be interesting to call the phone number, huh?

Ice Machine Circuit
This looks tricky. Perhaps all the RED lights must light up in order to get the ice machine power. The center IC unit looks like it supplies power to the other components. Try to create a trail of power from the IC UNIT to each of the 5 RED LIGHTS. Once all the RED lights are lit... exit out of the closeup panel and press the flashing green button to fill the bucket with ice. Take BUCKET OF ICE
