MD Appliance Installation Inc.

We Install All Kitchen and Laundry Appliances!

Installation Requirements - MD Appliance Installation Inc.

Please review the below information to better understand the process of purchasing a New Appliance and our expectations from you as the Client.



Dishwasher

-Make sure to measure the opening of the cabinet. 

(Most dishwashers only require 24 1/2" of width/ 18" for condo size.)

Measure from the back wall above your counter to the edge of the counter. 

(This will provide you with a maximum depth allowance on the new dishwasher)

Check you Installation Manual for exact dimensions and required opening dimensions. This can also be found online.

-Make sure there is a valve attached to the HOT water line, and that there is a drain for the Dishwasher discharge water.

-There will also need to be an available Outlet or Electrical Wire accessible and long enough o reach to the FRONT RIGHT SIDE of the cabinet opening.


Range (Freestanding)

-Make sure to measure the distance between your counter-tops on either side of the range.

-Check the depth to make sure that your new Range doesn't stick out further than you need it. 

-Check the plug to make sure that it is in the proper location. 

(If the plug is flush with the wall than you shouldn't have an issue. If the plug sticks out double check the product specs of your desired model to make sure it won't push the Range out. You may have to relocate/recess the plug in order to slide your range all the way back)

-Check the height of your counter tops and refer to product specs. 

(Rarely happens but we have seen the counter tops too high to be level with the Range-Top)


Range (Slide-In)

-Make sure to measure the distance between your counter-tops on either side of the range.

-Check the depth to make sure that your new Range doesn't stick out further than you need it. 

-Check the plug to make sure that it is in the proper location. 

(If the plug is flush with the wall than you shouldn't have an issue. If the plug sticks out double check the product specs of your desired model to make sure it won't push the Range out. You may have to relocate/recess the plug in order to slide your range all the way back)

-Check the height of your counter tops and refer to product specs. 

(Sometimes the Slide-In Range won't adjust high enough for the overhanging lips to clear)


Range (Gas)
-Most importantly make sure to check your clearances. 
-From the top of the stove top to the bottom of the cabinet that the hood fan is mounted to must be 30" of clearance MINIMUM.
-From the counter top to the bottom of the cabinet on either side of the range must be 18" of clearance MINIMUM. 
(Some models allow for lower clearances. Make sure to check your clearances against the specs of the model you wish to purchase)
-Make sure the gas piping is accessible so we can verify it is up to code for the unit that you are installing. 
-Locate an accessible shut off to the gas for installer. If one is not located behind the range we will likely have to add one to bring it up to code.
-Make sure that the gas line is in the correct location in regards to your model's specs. If it ends up pushing the range out due to the location of the pipe, then we are equipped to adjust/move it. 
(At an extra charge)

Fridge Water Line (Existing)

-Make sure that the new Fridge Specs are within the measurements of the cabinetry for fitting.

-Make sure that there is a functioning and accessible valve.

(If there is no Valve/Water Supply Line then please refer to Fridge Water Line (New))


Fridge Water Line (New)

-Check to see where the Fridge is located in accordance to the sink. 

(Do the cabinets connect the fridge to the sink without visible interruption? Not including Range)

-If the sink option doesn't work then there are 2 others: 

      1-Is there a bathroom backing onto the wall connected to the Fridge? If so then as long as there is a sink and an enclosed cabinet, then there is a chance we could connect through there.

      2-Is the basement directly underneath the kitchen finished? If not then we can connect to any cold water line closest to the Fridge's location.

(If none of these options are possible for you, then you may be looking at a job where there may be some need to tear down drywall/parts of the ceiling in order to locate the area under the fridge/nearest cold water pipe. [Most people at this stage just end up not getting a Fridge with water as the job ends up being bigger and more costly than originally anticipated)


Washing Machine

-Make sure you check the specs against the space and clearances you have in your laundry area. 

(With the machines getting bigger and heavier, we often run into the problem where customers weren't aware that the machines would stick out as much as some of the new machines do, and some cant even fit into the space of the old unit)

-Make sure that there are accessible water connections 

(If possible turn them off and on again to check for leaks. The most common issue with laundry installation is that the Water Valves leak after so long of not being turned)


Dryer (Electric)

-Make sure that you have the proper electrical Receptacle for the voltage of your unit 

(240V plug for Electrical Dryers)

-Make sure you check the specs against the space and clearances you have in your laundry area. 

(With the machines getting bigger and heavier, we often run into the problem where customers weren't aware that the machines would stick out as much as some of the new machines do, and some cant even fit into the space of the old unit)

-If you have the option or opportunity we do highly recommend that the vent is situated roughly centered on the wall to where the Dryer will be installed.

(This reduces the length it takes for the exhaust to travel and increases the efficiency of the Dryer's functionality. It also reduces the potential of having your Dryer stick out to far from the wall as you need to leave proper clearance for the vent to travel in behind the unit to avoid crimping/crushing the vent. [Which can lead to fire hazards])


Dryer (Gas)

-Make sure that you have the proper electrical Receptacle for the voltage of your unit

(120V Plug for Gas Dryers)

-Make sure you check the specs against the space and clearances you have in your laundry area. 

(With the machines getting bigger and heavier, we often run into the problem where customers weren't aware that the machines would stick out as much as some of the new machines do, and some cant even fit into the space of the old unit)

-Make sure the gas piping is up to code for the unit that you are installing. 
(We may have to Red Tag the Line, [Shut the Gas off to that appliance indefinitely] or charge to replace it if it is not)
-Make sure that there is an accessible shut off to the gas for installer. 
(Our company policy is to make sure there is at least 1 , Preferably 2, 1 at the furnace and 1 behind your Dryer. If there isn't one we would urge the 2 option but we would be fine with only putting in 1 [behind the Dryer] at your request)
-Make sure that the gas line is in the correct location in regards to your model's specs. If it ends up pushing the Dryer out due to the location of the pipe, then we are equipped to adjust/move it.

Wall Ovens/ Cook Tops (Electric)

-Make sure that the units you wish to purchase are within the measurements of your cabinet, (Depth, Width & Height) and that the Electrical Junction Box is accessible and not in the way where it can affect the proper flush installation.

-Make sure that the Electrical Wire supplied is in accordance with the specs of the unit.
