Typically people follow the 1-2-3 method for bottling. One week in the primary to ferment, two weeks in the secondary to clear, and three weeks in the bottle to carbonate. You may have carbonation after 14 days but it may take longer. Give one a try after 14 and see how it is. But yes, do it at room temperature (not hot).
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
