"Please attend to the machine." vs "Please see to the machine.'


Could you please tell me if the following [color=red]red statements are correct and natural? Which one is better?

1- The machine is out of order–could you [color=red]please see to it?

2- The machine is out of order–could you [color=red]please attend to it?


Neither one is better. They mean something slightly different, but not that different, and they’re both okay.

“Please see to it,” can mean to look in on the machine and see if it needs attending to. However, it can also mean to attend to the machine.

“Please attend to it,” means that the machine needs something done to it, maybe adjustment, repairs or something like that.
