b.Select Temperature...

The dryer will start, the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read the temperature cycle selected, and the drying time portion of the L.E.D. display will read “00” and count upward as time elapses, or the vended time will count downward, depending on the program parameter setting.

NON-COINMODELS

1.To start the dryer:

a. Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Dryers...

1)L.E.D. display will read “REAdY” (meaning no cycle in progress).

2)Press the letter on the keyboard (touch pad) corresponding to the cycle desired (i.e., key “E”)...

a)The dryer will then start (rotate).

3)L.E.D. display will now show “Cycle In Progress” and “Cycle Status” meaning that the dryer is in the drying cycle (dry mode for 30 minutes) and count downwards in minutes.

NOTE: Pressing keyboard (touch pad) key “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” will also start the dryer. The six (6) preprogrammed drying cycles “A” through “F” have been stored in the microprocessor controller (computer) memory. Refer to the Programming Manual supplied with the dryer for more specific operating instructions.

NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door or by pressing the “STOP”red key. To restart the dryer, press the “START”green key or a preprogrammed cycle key (i.e., “E”).

NOTE: Selection (settings) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by pressing the “STOP”red key twice. The L.E.D. display will return to “REAdY” at which time a new cycle selection can be made.

b.Dual Timer Dryers...

1)Select drying time and cool down time desired...

a)Turn heat timer clockwise (CW) to the desired time (i.e., 1 minute to 60 minutes).

b)Turn cool down timer clockwise (CW) to the desired time (i.e., 0 minutes to 30 minutes).

2)Select drying temperature (“HI TEMP,” “LO TEMP,” or “PERM PRESS”).

3)Push “Start” button...

a)Dryer will now start.

4)To stop the dryer, open the main door.

L. SHUTDOWN INSTRUCTIONS

If the dryer is to be shutdown (taken out of service) for a period of time, the following must be performed:

1.Discontinue power to the dryer either at the external disconnect switch or the circuit breaker.

2.Discontinue the heat supply:

a.GAS MODELS...discontinue the gas supply.

1)SHUT OFF external gas supply shutoff valve.

2)SHUT OFF internal gas supply shutoff valve located in the gas valve burner area.

b.STEAM MODELS...discontinue the steam supply.

1)SHUT OFF external (location furnished) shutoff valve.

2)SHUT OFF internal steam valves in the supply lines and the return lines.

SECTION V

WARRANTY INFORMATION

A. RETURNING WARRANTY CARDS

1.Before any dryer leaves the factory test area, a warranty card is placed on the back side of the main door glass. These warranty cards are intended to serve the customer where we record the individual installation date and warranty information to better serve you should you file a warranty claim.

a. If a warranty card did not come with your dryer, contact the JLA Warranty Department.

IMPORTANT: A separate warranty cardmust be completed and returned for each individual dryer.

NOTE: Be sure to include the installation date when returning the warranty card(s).

B. WARRANTY

For a copy of the JLA commercial warranty covering your particular dryer(s), contact theJLA distributor from whom you purchased the equipment and request a dryer warranty form. If the distributorcannot be contacted or is unknown, warranty information can be obtained fromJLA by contacting theJLA Warranty Department.

NOTE: Whenever contactingJLA for warranty information, be sure to have the dryer’smodel number andserial number available so that your inquiry can be handled in an expeditious manner.

SECTION VI

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

A. CLEANING

A program and/or schedule should be established for periodic inspection, cleaning, and removal of lint from various areas of the dryer, as well as throughout the ductwork system. The frequency of cleaning can best be determined from experience at each location. Maximum operating efficiency is dependent upon proper air circulation. The accumulation of lint can restrict this airflow. If the guidelines in this section are met, aJLA dryer will provide many years of efficient, trouble free, and most importantly, safe operation.

WARNING: LINT FROM MOST FABRICS IS HIGHLY COMBUSTIBLE. THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.

WARNING: KEEP DRYER AREA CLEAR AND FREE FROM COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS, GASOLINE, AND OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS.

NOTE: Suggested time intervals shown are for average usage, which is considered six (6) to eight (8) operational (running) hours per day.

IMPORTANT: Dryer produces combustible lint andmust be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6 months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint build up.

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE

EVERY THIRD OR FOURTH LOAD

Clean the lint screen every third or fourth load. A clogged lint screen will cause poor dryer performance. The lint screen is located in a drawer below the main door (refer to the illustration onpage 43). Open the lint drawer, brush or vacuum the lint off the lint screen, and remove the lint. Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.

NOTE: The frequency of cleaning the lint screen can best be determined from experience at each location.

WEEKLY

Clean lint accumulation from lint chamber, thermostat, and microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor bracket) area.

WARNING: TO AVOID THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.

41

STEAM DRYERS

Clean the steam coil fins. We suggest using compressed air and a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment.

WARNING: When cleaning steam coil fins, be careful not to bend the fins. If fins are bent, straighten by using a fin comb, which is available from local air conditioning supply houses.

90 DAYS

Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system and from dryer’s internal exhaust ducting.

WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.

WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR.

WARNING: INSPECT AND REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE THE BACK DRAFT DAMPER TO BIND OR STICK.

NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shutdown of heat circuit safety switches or thermostats.

NOTE: When cleaning the dryer cabinet(s), avoid using harsh abrasives. A product intended for the cleaning of appliances is recommended.

B. ADJUSTMENTS

7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION AND EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER

Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, (bearing setscrews), grounding connections, and nonpermanent gas connections (unions, shutoff valves, and orifices). Motor and drive belts should be examined. Cracked or seriously frayed beltsshould be replaced. Tighten looseV-beltswhen necessary. Complete operational check of controls and valves. Complete operational check ofALL safety devices (door switches, lint drawer switch, sail switch, burner, andhi-limitthermostats).

C. LUBRICATION

The motor bearings, idler bearings, and under normal/most conditions the basket (tumbler) bearings are permanently lubricated. It is physically possible to relubricate the basket (tumbler) bearings if you choose to do so even though this practice is not necessary.Use Shell Alvania grease NLGI grade 2 or its equivalent. Generically, this grease would be described as a NLGI grade 2 multipurpose industrial grease with a lithium thickener and mineral base oil. The basket (tumbler) bearings used in the dryerdoes not have a grease fitting. Provisions are made in the bearing housing for the addition of a grease fitting, which can be obtained elsewhere, or fromJLA by ordering kit Part No. 882159 (includes two [2] fittings).

42

D. LINT DRAWER REMOVAL

To remove the lint drawer from the dryer pull drawer out approximately halfway. Rotate/move lint drawer stop hinge (refer to the illustration below) downward and pull the drawer out.

IMPORTANT: After replacing the lint drawer back into the dryer, be sure to rotate/move hinge back to the upward stop position.
