NEMA 10-30RNEMA14-30R

GAS Dryer

CIRCUIT - Individual 15 amp. branch circuit fused with a 15 amp. maximum time delay fuse or circuit breaker.

POWER SUPPLY - 3 wire, 120 volt single phase, 60 Hz, Alternating Current.

POWER SUPPLY CORD - The dryer is equipped with a 120 volt3-wirepower cord.

NOTE: Do not under any circumstances remove grounding prong from plug.

GROUNDING PRONG

Use only 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter (minimum) rigid or flexible metal duct and approved vent hood which has aswing-outdamper(s) that open when the dryer is in operation. When the dryer stops, the dampers automatically close to prevent drafts and the entrance of insects and rodents. To avoid restricting the outlet, maintain a minimum of 12 inches (30.5 cm) clearance between the vent hood and the ground or any other obstruction.

The following are specific requirements for proper and safe operation of your dryer. Failure to follow these instructions can create excessive drying times and fire hazards.

Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic venting materials.If your present system is made up of plastic duct or metal foil duct, replace itwith a rigid or semirigid metal duct. In Canada and the United States if metal (foil type) duct is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers and in the United States must also comply with the Outline for Clothes Dryer Transition Duct, UL standard 2158A. Flexible venting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed and trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire. Ensure the present duct is free of any lint prior to installing dryer duct.

- Risk of Fire- A clothes dryer must be exhausted outdoors. Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, an attic, a crawl space or any concealed space of a building. A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. If the dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint will be expelled into the laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area of the home can create a health and fire hazard. The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors.Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding

3 area.

Do not allow combustible materials (for example: clothing, draperies/curtains, paper) to come in contact with exhaust system.The dryer MUST NOTbe exhausted into a chimney, a wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space of a building which can accumulate lint, resulting in a fire hazard.

Exceeding the length of duct pipe or number of elbows allowed in the "MAXIMUM LENGTH" chartscan cause an accumulation of lint in the exhaust system. Plugging the system could create a fire hazard, as well as increase drying times.

Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent system, nor use any screws, rivets or other fastening means that extend into the duct and catch lint to assemble the exhaust system.Lint can become caught in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging the duct work and creating a fire hazard as well as increasing drying times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the duct outdoors, and seal all joints with duct tape. All male duct pipe fittings MUSTbe installed downstream with the flow of air.

Explosion hazard. Do not install the dryer where gasoline or other flammables are kept or stored.If the dryer is installed in a garage, it must be a minimum of 18 inches (45.7 cm) above the floor. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, fire or burns.

NOT RECOMMENDED

CORRECT INCORRECT

INSTALL MALE FITTINGS IN CORRECT DIRECTION

In installations where the exhaust system is not described in the charts, the following method must be used to determine if the exhaust system is acceptable:

1.Connect an inclined or digital manometer between the dryer and the point the exhaust connects to the dryer.

2.Set the dryer timer and temperature to air fluff (cool down) and start the dryer.

3.Read the measurement on the manometer.

4.The system back pressure MUST NOT be higher than 0.75 inches of water column. If the system back pressure is less than 0.75 inches of water column, the system is acceptable. If the manometer reading is higher than 0.75 inches of water column, the system is too restrictive and the installation is unacceptable.

Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system is acceptable, certain extenuating circumstances could affect the performance of the dryer:

Only the rigid metal duct work should be used.

Venting vertical through a roof may expose the exhaust system to down drafts causing an increase in vent restriction.

Running the exhaust system through an uninsulated area may cause condensation and faster accumulation of lint.

Compression or crimping of the exhaust system will cause

an increase in vent restriction.

The exhaust system should be inspected and cleaned a minimum of every 18 months with normal usage. The more the dryer is used, the more often you should check the exhaust system and vent hood for proper operation.

EXHAUST DIRECTION

All dryers shipped from the factory are set up for rear exhausting. However, on electric dryers, exhausting can be to the right or left side of the cabinet or the bottom of the dryer. On gas dryers, exhausting can be to the right side of the cabinet or the bottom of the dryer. Directional exhausting can be accomplished by installing Exhaust Kit, P/N 131456800, available through your parts distributor. Follow the instructions supplied with the kit.
