Where To Locate Make And Model Of Appliances

Locating The Make And Model Information Of Your Appliances

As a tenant, you are responsible for helping keep your apartment or residential rental clean and well-maintained. 

This includes regularly checking and maintaining all appliances in your unit. If these appliances need to be cleaned or repaired, knowing their make and model is part of your responsibility. If you don't have your manufacturer's manual within easy reach, here's where you can find this information:

Range Hood

The make and model can be found on a label inside the hood, on the upper left-hand side. If it isn't there, check the underside of the hood near where it attaches to the range.

Fridge

The make and model can be found on a label inside the fridge, on the upper left-hand side. If it isn't inside the fridge, check on the back of the fridge near where it plugs into an outlet.

Dishwasher

The make and model can be found on a label inside the dishwasher, on the rear left-hand side. If you cannot find it there, check beneath the dishwasher near where it attaches to the kitchen cabinets.

Washer

The make and model can be found on a label inside the washer, on the back near the bottom. If not, check inside the removable access panel or beneath the washer, close to one of its feet. 

Boiler or Water Heater

The make and model can be found on a label affixed to the front of the unit. If not, check beneath the unit near where the gas or electricity inlet valves are located.

Extractor Fans

The make and model of your extractor or ventilation fans can be found on a label affixed to the underside of the fan housing. If not, check for a stamped label (with the texts raised in relief, as it were) around the edge of the housing.

Dehumidifier

The make and model can be found on a label affixed to the back of the unit, or along the bottom edge. 

Also, check removable panels as that is sometimes where manufacturers place this info to keep it from being tampered with (as doing so voids warranty)

HVAC System

The make and model can be found on a data plate that lists important information about the unit. This will be attached to the outside of one of the air handling units (if there is more than one). 

If not, it will be listed on one of the units mounted on an exterior wall near where ductwork enters or exits the building. If not, look for a removable access panel as it may be attached to that.

No Instructions Manual Or Manufacturer’s Guidelines? No Problem!

Knowing where to find the make and model information for your appliances can save you time and hassle when you need to install replacement parts yourself or call in for repairs. 

But if you don't have the manual and are having difficulty looking for the label or data plate on your appliance, please contact us on 01522503717 and we will be able to send out a contractor. However, if it is found that it falls under your responsibility as a tenant then you will be charged for the work.

Reminder That You May Be Charged - Where our contractor has arranged a time with you to attend and you postpone, cancel, or don't show up or where it is your fault for the appointment not proceeding you will be responsible for paying the call-out charge for the contractor and potentially any restocking fee for parts. Where the fault, issue or damage, is put down to your or other tenants, permitted occupiers, or guests' actions, you will be responsible for paying for the repair. These terms are already part of your Tenancy Agreement.
