My new house has a bit of a flaw in the kitchen appliance layout. The stove is located between the fridge and a partial wall. This arrangement pins the stove into a box-like space with no access to the counter.
Moving the small upper cabinet and rewiring the range hood should be fairly straightforward and the cords and waterline on the appliances are long enough to simply slide them to their new locations. My concern is the safety of having a 220 outlet behind a refrigerator that has an icemaker connection at approximately the same height. Also, the oven will then have the water valve for the icemaker behind it.
Is it safe to leave the appliances plugged in to their existing outlets and simply switch their locations?
