IMPORTANT INFORMATION

A. RECEIVING AND HANDLING

The dryer is shipped with a protective polyethylene cover and protective corners and is enclosed in a cardboard carton as a means of protection in transit. Upon delivery, the shipping carton and wooden skid should be visually inspected for shipping damage. If the carton or wooden skid is damaged, inspect further.

Dryers damaged in shipment:

1.ALL dryersshould be inspected upon receipt and before they are signed for.

2.If there is suspected damage or actual damage, the trucker’s receipt should be so noted.

3.If the dryer is damaged beyond repair, it should be refused. Those dryers, which were not damaged in a damaged shipment,should be accepted, but the number received and number refusedmust be noted on the receipt.

4.If you determine that the dryer has been damaged after the trucker has left your location, you should call your local freight terminal immediately and request an inspection and freight claim form. The freight company considers this concealed damage. This type of freight claim is very difficult to get paid and becomes extremely difficult when more than a day or two passes after the freight was delivered.

5.If you need assistance in handling the situation, please call American Dryer Corporation.

IMPORTANT: The dryershould be transported and handled in an upright position atALL times.

B. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

WARNING: The collection of lint in the burner area and exhaust ductwork can create a potential fire hazard.

6.For personal safety, the dryer must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes and/or the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA NO.70-LATESTEDITION or in Canada, the Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSAC22.1-1990or LATEST EDITION.
