13.Replace leaking flexible hoses or other steam fixtures immediately. DO NOT operate the dryer with leaking flexible hoses.PERSONAL INJURY MAY RESULT.

14.The normal PH level for copper type steam coils must be maintained between a value of 8.5 to 9.5. For steel type steam coils the PH levelmust be maintained between a value of 9.5 to 10.5. These limits are set to limit the acid attack of the steam coils.

IMPORTANT: Coil failure due to improper PH level willVOID THE WARRANTY.

15.READ and FOLLOW ALL CAUTION and DIRECTION LABELS ATTACHED TO THE DRYER.

16.For safety, proper operation, and optimum performance, the dryer must not be operated with a load less thansixty-sixpercent (66%), 36 pounds (16 kg) of its rated capacity.
