    I would like to ask the difference between the "out of commission" and "out of order" in terms of meaning and usage.

    Are they different in terms of formality? An elevator, an ATM machine or a computer can be out of order. Can I use "out of commission" also for these vehicles? Does it have to do with machines that are in public use?
