In the absence of these codes, the installation must conform to applicable American National Standards: ANSI Z223.1-LATEST EDITION (National Fuel Gas Code) or ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST EDITION (National Electrical Code) or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable Canadian Standards: CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2- M91 (Liquid Propane [L.P.] Gas) or LATEST EDITION (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing) or Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION (for Electrical Connections).

UNPACKING/SETTING UP

Remove protective shipping material (i.e., plastic wrap and optional shipping box) from dryer.

IMPORTANT:

!Dryer must be transported and handled in an upright position at ALL times.

The dryer can be moved to its final location while still attached to the skid or with the skid removed. To unskid the dryer, locate and remove the four (4) bolts securing the base of the dryer to the wooden skid. Two (2) are at the rear base (remove the back panel for access), and two (2) are located in the bottom of the lint chamber. To remove the two (2) bolts located in the lint chamber area, remove the lint door.

With the skid removed, to make it easier to slide the dryer into its final position, slightly lower ALL four (4) leveling legs, so that the dryer will slide on the legs instead of the base frame.

Leveling Dryer

The dryer is equipped with four (4) leveling legs, one (1) at each corner of the base. Two (2) are located at the rear of the dryer base, and two (2) are located in the lint chamber (coop). For better door closure and improve efficiency, the dryer should be tilted slightly to the rear.

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS

Before installing the dryer, be sure the location conforms to local codes and ordinances. In the absence of such codes or ordinances the location must conform with the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1 LATEST EDITION, or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable Canadian Standards: CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/ CGA-B149.2-M91 (Liquid Propane [L.P.] Gas) or LATEST EDITION (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing).

The dryer must be installed on a sound level floor capable of supporting its weight. Carpeting must be removed from the floor area that the dryer is to rest on.

IMPORTANT:

“The dryer must be installed on noncombustible

!floors only.”

The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water and/or weather.

The dryer is for use in noncombustible locations.

Provisions for adequate air supply must be provided as noted in this manual (refer to Fresh Air Supply Requirements).

Clearance provisions must be made from noncombustible construction as noted in this manual (refer to Dryer Enclosure Requirements).

Provisions must be made for adequate clearances for servicing and for operation as noted in this manual (refer to

Dryer Enclosure Requirements).

Dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors as noted in this manual (refer to Exhaust Requirements).

Dryer must be located in an area where correct exhaust venting can be achieved as noted in this manual (refer to

Exhaust Requirements).

IMPORTANT:

!Dryer should be located where a minimum amount of exhaust duct will be necessary.

The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.

The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.

CAUTION:

This dryer produces combustible lint and must ! be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6 months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any

DRYER ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS

Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials and must be located a minimum of 12-inches (30.48 cm) above the dryer’s outer top; 18-inches (45.72 cm) for steam dryers, except along the front of the dryer which may be closed if desired.

X = 12-inch (30.48 cm) minimum, 24-inches (60.96 cm) is suggested for ease of maintenance.

* 1-inch (2.54 cm) maximum for electric dryers.

**18-inch (45.72 cm) minimum for steam dryers.

NOTE:

Air considerations are important for proper and

!efficient operation.

Allowances must be made for opening the control door.

Dryers may be positioned sidewall to sidewall. However, a 1/16” (1.587 mm) minimum allowance must be made for the opening and closing of the control door and the lint door. It is suggested that the dryer be positioned about 2 feet (0.61 meters) away from the nearest obstruction for ease of installation, maintenance, and service (to be measured from the back guard). Refer to the illustration below for details.

FRESHAIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to ensure proper performance of each dryer. An unrestricted source of air is necessary for each dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 1 square foot (0.09 square meters) is required for each dryer. If registers or louvers are installed over the openings, then the area must be increased. It is not necessary to have separate make-up air openings for each dryer. Common make-up air openings are acceptable. However, they must be set up in such a manner that the make-up air is distributed equally to the dryers. The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.

EXAMPLE: For a bank of eight (8) dryers, two (2) unrestricted openings measuring 2 feet x 2 feet (0.61 meters x 0.61 meters) are acceptable.

IMPORTANT:

!Make-up air openings should not be located in an area directly near where exhaust vents exit the building.

Allowances must be made for remote or constricting passageways or where dryers are located at excessive altitudes or predominantly low pressure areas.

IMPORTANT:

!Make-up air must be provided from a source free of dry cleaning solvent fumes. Make-up air that is contaminated by dry cleaning solvent fumes will result in irreparable damage to the motors and other dryer components.

NOTE:

Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.

EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS

Exhaust ductwork should be designed and installed by a qualified professional. Improperly sized ductwork will create excessive back pressure which results in slow drying, increased use of energy, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switch, burner hi-limit, or lint chamber hi-heat protector thermostat. The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.

113243-1

CAUTION:

!

This dryer produces combustible lint and must

be exhausted to the outdoors.

When possible, it is suggested to provide a separate (single) exhaust duct for each dryer.

CAUTION:

!IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.

The exhaust ductwork should be laid out in such a way that the ductwork travels as directly as possible to the outdoors with as few turns as possible. The shape of the ductwork is not critical provided that the minimum cross section area is maintained. Single or independent dryer venting is recommended.

It is suggested that the use of 90° turns be avoided; use 30° or 45° angles instead.

The ductwork should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions, which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the ducts to be added should overlap the duct to which it is connected. ALL ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building. Additionally, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic inspection and cleaning.

IMPORTANT:

When connecting ductwork to the dryer exhaust

!duct, be sure that when screws are used they DO NOT restrict the operation (both opening and closing) of the damper.

NOTE:

When the exhaust ductwork passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible materials, the opening must be 2-inches (5.08 cm) larger than the duct (all the way around). The duct must be centered within this opening.

To protect the outside end of the horizontal ductwork from the weather, a 90° elbow bent downward should be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the ductwork travels vertically up through the roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180° turn to point the opening downward. In either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and the nearest obstruction (i.e., roof or ground level).

IMPORTANT:

!DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust ductwork.

Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area must be no less than 0 and must not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 mb) of water column (W.C.).

It is recommended that exhaust or booster fans not be used in the exhaust ductwork system.

NOTE:

As per the National Fuel Gas Code, “Exhaust ! ducts for type 2 clothes dryers shall be constructed of sheet metal or other noncombustible material. Such ducts shall be equivalent in strength and corrosion resistance to ducts made of galvanized sheet steel not less than 0.0195-inches (26 gauge [0.05 mm]) thick.”

SINGLE DRYER VENTING

IMPORTANT:

!For exhaust duct runs over 40 feet (12.19 meters) a minimum size of 10-inches (25.4 cm) must be used.

HORIZONTAL VENTING

When horizontal single 8-inch (20.32 cm) venting is used, the ductwork to the outlet cannot exceed 40 feet (12.19 meters), refer to Illus. A below. This calculation of 40 feet (12.19 meters) compensates or allows for the use of a maximum of only one (1) elbow (which is the outside outlet protection).

Illus. A

If the length of the duct run or quantity of elbows used exceeds the above noted specifications, the cross section area of the ductwork must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows or duct run added.

IMPORTANT:

!For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the duct can only be increased to an extent. For extended ductwork runs, a professional heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted for proper venting information.

American Dryer Corp.

113243-1

VERTICAL VENTING

When vertical single 10-inch (25.4 cm) venting is used (refer to Illus. B below), the ductwork from the dryer to the outside outlet cannot exceed 60 feet (18.28 meters), refer to Illus. B below. This calculation compensates for the use of a maximum of three (3) elbows including the two (2) elbows creating the 180° (turned downward) outside outlet.

Illus. B

Illus. C

IMPORTANT:

!No more than eight (8) dryers maximum should be connected to one (1) main common duct with a vertical run.

If the length of the duct run or quantity of elbows used exceeds the above noted specifications, the cross section area of the ductwork must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows or duct run added.

IMPORTANT:

!For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the duct can only be increased to an extent. For extended ductwork runs, a professional heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted for proper venting information.

MULTIPLE DRYER (COMMON) VENTING

If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each dryer, ducts for individual dryers may be channeled into a common main duct. Each dryer is provided with a back draft damper. The individual ducts should enter the bottom or side of the main duct at an angle not more than 45° in the direction of the airflow.

The main common duct may be any shape provided that the minimum cross-sectional area is maintained. The main duct should be tapered with the diameter increasing before each individual 8-inch (20.32 cm) duct is added (refer to Illus. C below).

NOTE:

!Distance between dryer single ducts being connected to the main common duct must be a minimum of 31-3/8” (79.69 cm) dryer width.

Ductwork should be laid out in such a manner where allowances are made at rear area of the dryer for removal of rear service panels or guards.

113243-1

www.amdry.com

7

Illus. C (refer to the previous page) shows the minimum cross section area for multiple dryer venting. These figures must be increased in proportion if the main duct run from the last dryer to where it exhausts has numerous elbows or is unusually long.

IMPORTANT:

!For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the duct can only be increased to an extent. For extended ductwork runs, a professional heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted for proper venting information.

IMPORTANT VENTING REMINDERS

Ductwork size and installation should be done by a qualified professional.

The dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.

Ductwork should be routed as short as possible to the outdoors with as few elbows as possible.

Avoid 90° turns, use 30° or 45° turns instead.

The size of the ductwork must be a minimum of 8-

inches (20.32 cm) for horizontal runs and 10-inches (25.4 cm) for vertical runs.

American Dryer Corp.

113243-1

The dryer is provided with a 1/2” N.P.T. inlet pipe connection located at the right side of the base of the dryer. The minimum pipe size (supply line) to the dryer is 1/2” pipe. For ease in servicing, the gas supply line of each dryer must have its own shutoff valve.

The size of the main gas supply line (header) will vary depending on the distance this line travels from the gas meter or, in the case of L.P. gas, the supply tank, other gas-operated appliances on the same line, etc. Specific information regarding supply line size should be determined by the gas supplier.

NOTE:

!Undersized gas supply piping can create a low or inconsistent pressure, which will result in erratic operation of the burner ignition system.

Consistent gas pressure is essential at ALL gas connections. It is recommended that a 3/4-inch (19.05 mm) pipe gas loop be installed in the supply line servicing a bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator must be installed in the gas supply line (header) if the (natural) gas pressure exceeds 12.0 inches (29.9 mb) of water column (W.C.) pressure. (Refer to the illustrations above.)

NOTE:

A water column test pressure of 3.5 inches (8.7

!mb) for natural gas and 10.5 inches (26.1 mb) for liquid propane (L.P.) dryers is required at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer for proper and safe operation.

A 1/8” N.P.T. plugged tap, accessible for a test gauge connection, must be installed in the main gas supply line immediately upstream of each dryer.

IMPORTANT:

!Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of natural gas and L.P. gas must be used.

Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid detergent works well).

The dryer and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

WARNING:

NEVER TEST FOR LEAKS WITH A FLAME!!!

NOTE:

The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure test of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

STEAM INFORMATION

It is your responsibility to have ALL plumbing connections made by a qualified professional to ensure that the gas plumbing installation is adequate and conforms with local and state regulations or codes.

Care must be exercised when leveling steam dryers into final position. After leveling the dryer, check the downward pitch of the heat exchanger from front to rear with a level. Likewise, check the downward pitch of the return condensate manifold toward its outlet part. Absence of these downward pitches will result in probable water hammer and premature heat exchanger fracture and leakage.

The presence of condensate in the steam will cause water hammer and subsequent heat exchanger failure. The steam supply connection must be taken from the top of a well-dripped steam main. If the supply run-out to the dryer exceeds 20 feet (6.1 meters), it should be dripped just before the control valve with a proper trap and dirt pocket.

IMPORTANT:

!Failure to comply with the requirements stipulated in this manual can result in component failure, which will VOID THE WARRANTY.

NOTE:

The dryer is manufactured with a pneumatic (piston) damper system, which requires an external supply of air (80 psi +/- 10 psi [5.51 bar +/- 0.68 bar]).

Steam Coil pH Level

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 level must be maintained between a value of 9.5 to 10.5. These limits are set to limit the acid attack of the steam coils.

Installation Instructions

To ensure an adequate supply of steam is provided, be sure that the steam supply lines and steam return lines are sized and laid out as stipulated in this manual. Inadequate steam supply lines and steam return lines or improper steam plumbing will result in poor performance and can cause component failure. Clean, dry steam must be provided to the dryer.

IMPORTANT:

!Steam coil failure due to water hammer by wet steam will VOID THE WARRANTY.

The pressure of the condensate in the steam supply line will cause water hammer and subsequent heat exchanger (steam coil) failure. The steam supply connection into the main supply line must be made with a minimum 10-inch (25.4 cm) riser. This will prevent any condensate from draining towards the dryer.

The steam supply line to the dryer must include a 12-inch (30.48 cm) riser along with a drip trap and check valve. This will prevent any condensate from entering the steam coil.

Flexible hoses or couplings must be used. The dryer vibrates slightly when it runs and this will cause the steam coil connections to crack if they are hard piped to the supply and return mains.

Shutoff valves for each dryer should be installed in the supply line, return line, and drip trap return line. This will allow the dryer to be isolated from the supply main and the return main if the dryer needs maintenance work.

Install an inverted bucket steam trap and check valve at least 12-inches (30.48 cm) below the steam coil as close to the coil as possible. A trap with a capacity of 150 lbs (68 kg) of condensate per hour at 125 psi (8.62 bar) is needed for each unit.

The supply line and the return line should be insulated. This will save energy and provide for the safety of the operator and maintenance personnel.

Water pockets in the supply line, caused by low points, will provide wet steam to the coil possibly causing steam coil damage. ALL horizontal runs of steam supply piping should be pitched 1/4-inch (6.35 mm) for every 1 foot (0.31 meters) back towards the steam supply header causing the condensate in the line to drain to the header. Install a bypass trap in any low point to eliminate wet steam.

IMPORTANT:

!Flexible hoses/couplings must be used. Coil failure due to hard plumbing connections will VOID THE WARRANTY.

Steam Damper Air System Connections

The dryer is manufactured with a pneumatic (piston) damper system, which requires an external supply of compressed air. The air connection is made to the steam damper solenoid valve, which is located at the rear inner top area of the dryer just in front of the electric service relay box.

Air Requirements

There is no air requirement for dryers with the Electromechanical Steam Damper Option.

Air Connection

Air connection to system --- 1/8” N.P.T.

Air Regulation

No air regulator or filtration is provided with the dryer. External regulation/filtration of 80 psi (5.51 bar) must be provided. It is suggested that a regulator/filter gauge arrangement be added to the compressed air line just before the dryer connection. This is necessary to ensure that correct and clean air pressure is achieved.

Steam Damper System Operation

The steam damper, as shown in the illustration below, allows the coil to stay constantly charged eliminating repeated expansion and contraction. When the damper is opened, the air immediately passes through the already hot coil, providing instant heat to start the drying process. When the damper is closed, ambient air is drawn directly into the basket (tumbler), allowing a rapid cool down.

Diagram 1 shows the damper in the heating (open) mode, allowing heat into the basket (tumbler).

Diagram 2 shows the damper in the cool down (closed) mode, pulling ambient air directly into the basket (tumbler) without passing through the coils.

NOTE:

!With the dryer off or with no air supply, the steam damper is in cool down mode as shown in Diagram 2.

Steam Damper Air Piston (Flow Control) Operation

Adjustment

Damper operation was tested and adjusted prior to shipping at 80 psi (5.51 bar). If damper air adjustment is necessary, locate the flow control valve and make the necessary adjustments as noted below.

PREPARATION FOR OPERATION/START-UP

The following items should be checked before attempting to operate the dryer:

Read ALL CAUTION,” “WARNING,” and “DIRECTION” labels attached to the dryer.

Check incoming supply voltage to be sure that it is the same as indicated on the dryer data label.

GAS MODELS - check to ensure that the dryer is

connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the dryer data label.

GAS AND ELECTRIC MODELS - the sail switch

damper assembly was installed and adjusted at the factory prior to shipping. However, each sail switch adjustment must be checked to ensure that this important safety control is functioning.

Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for tightness.

GAS MODELS - be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.

Check ALL back guard panels and service box covers have been replaced.

Make sure the lint coop support bracket has been removed.

Check the lint door to ensure that it is closed and secured in place.

IMPORTANT:

!If during installation the lint door safety chain was disconnected, it must be reconnected or personal injury may result.

Rotate the basket (tumbler/drum) by hand to be sure it moves freely.

Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.

STEAM MODELS - check to ensure that a clean,

dry, and regulated air supply (80 psi [5.51 bar]) is on the dryer (with air-operated damper system only).

STEAM MODELS - check to ensure ALL steam shutoff valves are open.

STEAM MODELS - check steam damper operation.

Check basket (tumbler) bearing setscrews to ensure that they are ALL tight.

PREOPERATIONAL TESTS

ALL dryers are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving the factory. However, a preoperational test should be performed before the dryer is publicly used. It is possible that adjustments have changed in transit or due to marginal location (installation) conditions.

Turn on electrical power to the dryer.

Refer to the Operating Instructions for starting your particular model dryer.

16

American Dryer Corp.

113243-1

Gas Models Only

When a gas dryer is first started (during initial start-up), it has a tendency not to ignite on the first ignition attempt. This is because the gas supply piping is filled with air, so it may take a few minutes for the air to be purged from the lines.

NOTE:

!During the purging period, check to be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are open.

Gas model dryers are equipped with an ignition system, which has internal diagnostics. If ignition is not established after one (1) time, the heat circuit in the ignition module will attempt two (2) more ignitions (total of three [3] ignition attempts). If there is no flame after the third ignition attempt the module will lock out until it is manually reset. To reset the ignition system, open and close the main door and restart the dryer.

A gas pressure test should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer to ensure that the water column (W.C.) pressure is correct and consistent.

NOTE:

!Water column pressure requirements (measured at the pressure tap of the gas valve body):

Natural Gas .............................

3.5 Inches (8.7 mb) W.C.

Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas ......

10.5 Inches (26.1 mb) W.C.

IMPORTANT:

!There is no regulator provided in an L.P. dryer. The water column pressure must be regulated at the source (L.P. tank), or an external regulator must be added to each dryer.

Make a complete operational check of ALL safety related circuits:

Door Switch(es)

Hi-Limit Thermostats

Cycling Thermostat

GAS AND ELECTRIC MODELS ONLY - Sail Switch

NOTE:

The sail switch can be checked for proper

!operation by opening the lint door while heating circuit (gas burner/electric oven) is active (on). The heating unit should shut off within a few seconds. If not, make necessary adjustments to the sail switch.

Make a complete operational check of ALL operating controls.

NOTE:

!If computer program changes are required, refer to the computer programming section of the manual supplied with the dryer.

The dryer should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to ensure that no further adjustments are necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.

BASKET (TUMBLER) COATING

The basket (tumbler) is treated with a protective coating. We suggest dampening old garments or cloth material with a solution of water and nonflammable mild detergent and tumbling them in the basket (tumbler) to remove this coating.

Check the electric service phase sequence (3-phase [3ø] models only). While the dryer is operating, check to see if the blower wheel (impellor/fan) is rotating in the proper direction. Looking from the front, the blower wheel (impellor/fan) should spin in the clockwise (CW) direction. If it is, the phasing is correct. If the phasing is incorrect, reverse two (2) of the three

(3) leads at connections L1, L2, and L3 of the power supply to the dryer.

IMPORTANT:

!If the blower wheel (impellor/fan) is rotating in the wrong direction, this will not only drastically reduce drying efficiency, but it can also cause premature component failure.

For Models with Johnson Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Controller (G760)

Theory of Operation:

Start the drying cycle. When the gas burner ignites within the chosen trial for ignition time (6-seconds), the flame sensor detects gas burner flame and signals the DSI module to keep the gas valve open as long as there is a call for heat. The DSI module will “LOCK OUT” if the gas burner flame is not sensed at the end of the trial for ignition period. The trial for ignition period will be repeated for a total of three (3) retries/ trials (the initial try and two [2] more retries/trials). If the flame is not sensed at the end of the third retry/trial (inter-purge period of 30-seconds) the DSI module will “LOCK OUT” (light emitting diode [L.E.D.] diagnostic indicator flashes).

A steady L.E.D. indicator indicates normal operation.

No L.E.D. indicator indicates a power or an internal failure has occurred.

For Models with Fenwal Controls DSI Module (128937)

Theory of Operation:

Start the drying cycle. When the gas burner ignites within the chosen trial for ignition time (8-seconds), the flame sensor detects gas burner flame and signals the DSI module to keep the gas valve open as long as there is a call for heat. The DSI module will “LOCK OUT” if the gas burner flame is not sensed at the end of the trial for ignition period. The trial for ignition period will be repeated for a total of three (3) retries/ trials (the initial try and two [2] more retries/trials). If the flame is not sensed at the end of the third retry/trial (inter-purge period of 30-seconds), the DSI module will “LOCK OUT” (a red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator will flash).

An unlit red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates normal operation.

A lit green L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates dryer controller is calling for heat and that ALL interlocks have been satisfied.

MANUAL RESET BURNER HI-LIMIT INSTRUCTIONS

PHASE 7

This dryer was manufactured with a manual reset burner hilimit thermostat, which is monitored by the Phase 7 computer. If the burner hi-limit is open prior to the start of the drying cycle, the dryer will start momentarily and then shut down, the Phase 7 computer will display “BURNER HIGH LIMIT FAULT” with an audio indication.

If the burner hi-limit opens during a drying cycle, the Phase 7 computer will also display the same error code described above, along with an audio indication. If the drum temperature is above 100° F (38° C), the dryer will continue to run with no heat for 3 minutes or until the drum temperature has dropped below 100° F (38° C). The clear/stop button on the Phase 7 keyboard (touch pad) must be pressed to clear the error condition. The open burner hi-limit must be reset “manually” prior to the start of the next cycle.

Dual Timer

This dryer was manufactured with a manual reset burner hilimit thermostat. If the burner hi-limit is open prior to the start of the drying cycle, or during the cycle, the dryer will not recognize the open state of the burner hi-limit and will start or continue through the drying cycle with no heat. Manual reset hi-limit must be reset manually.

This hi-temperature condition may be caused due to a restricted exhaust, poor airflow, or improper burner operation.

The location of the burner hi-limit is on the right side of the burner box, looking at the burner from the back of the dryer.

WARNING:

!Discontinue power to dryer before attempting to reset hi-limit.

SENSOR ACTIVATED FIRE EXTINGUISHING (S.A.F.E.) SYSTEM

S.A.F.E. SYSTEM IN ACTION

The exclusive Sensor Activated Fire Extinguishing (S.A.F.E.) System will extinguish fires that may start in the drying basket (tumbler). A series of sensors positioned throughout the basket (tumbler) and interfaced with the microprocessor will trigger the S.A.F.E. system water jet(s) to quickly extinguish the flames. The water jet(s) remain on for 2 minutes and will automatically activate again if a fire condition remains or reignites. While the water jet(s) are activated, the basket (tumbler) will jog to move the water throughout the load. The microprocessor will display that the system was activated and will continue to display until the dryer is attended to.

We have tried to make this manual as complete as possible and hope you will find it useful. ADC reserves the right to make changes from time to time, without notice or obligation, in prices, specifications, colors, and material, and to change or discontinue models.

BEFOREYOU START!

CHECK LOCAL CODES AND PERMITS

Call your local water company or the proper municipal authority for information regarding local codes.

IMPORTANT:

!It is your responsibility to have ALL plumbing connections made by a qualified professional to assure that the plumbing installation is adequate and conforms to local, state, and federal regulations or codes.

It is the installation or owners responsibility to see that the necessary or required water, water pressure, pipe size, or connections are provided. Manufacturer assumes no responsibility if the S.A.F.E. system is not connected, installed, or maintained properly.

INSTALLATION

Requirements

The S.A.F.E. system must be supplied with a minimum water pipe size of 1/2” and be provided with 40 psi +/- 20 psi (2.75 bar +/- 1.37 bar) of pressure. For use of optional manual bypass, a second source with the same piping and pressure requirements is required.

Flexible 1/2 feeds must be provided to avoid damage to electric water solenoid valve by vibration.

IMPORTANT:

!Flexible supply line/coupling must be used. Solenoid valve failure due to hard plumbing connections WILL VOID WARRANTY.

If the rear area of the dryer, or the water supply is located in an area where it will be exposed to cold/freezing temperatures, provisions must be made to protect these water lines from freezing.

WARNING:

!If the water in the supply line or water solenoid valve freezes, the S.A.F.E. system will be INOPERATIVE!!

IMPORTANT:

Appliance is to be connected to the water mains using a new hose-set and the old hose-sets should not be reused.

Water Connections:

The water connection is made to the 3/4”-11.5 NH hose adapter of the electric water solenoid valve, located at the rear upper midsection of the dryer (refer to the photo).

The water solenoid valve has a 3/8” M.P.T. connection supplied with a 3/4”-11.5 NH hose adapter to provide the minimum 1/ 2-inch supply (feed) line. Flexible supply line/coupling must be used in an effort to avoid damaging the electric water solenoid valve.

NOTE:

!The 3/4”-11.5 NH is a standard hose coupling screw thread. It is not to be confused with 3/4” N.P.T. The sealing of an NH connection is made with a washer opposed to the mating threads of an N.P.T. assembly. The two (2) thread designs are not compatible.

WARNING:

!If the water in the supply line or water solenoid valve freezes, the S.A.F.E. system will be INOPERATIVE!!

The manual ball cock shutoff valve must be located outside of the dryer at a distance from the dryer where it is easily accessible.

Electrical Requirements

No independent external power source or supply connection is necessary. The 24 volt power to operate the S.A.F.E. system is accomplished internally in the dryer (from the dryer controls).

WARNING:

!Electrical power must be provided to the dryer at ALL times. If the main electrical power supply to the dryer is disconnected, the S.A.F.E. system is INOPERATIVE!!

S.A.F.E. SYSTEM THEORY OF OPERATION

While the dryer is in an idle state, or 20-seconds after the heat turns off, the Phase 7 control monitors the thermistor probe, located in the top of the basket (tumbler) chamber, and records the minimum temperature. If the minimum recorded thermistor probe temperature is greater than 120° F (48° C) and the control detects a 50° rise in temperature, this will be the trip point and the S.A.F.E. system routine will activate.

While a drying cycle is in process and the heat has turned on at least once, the Phase 7 control monitors the exhaust temperature transducer. If the drying cycle temperature set point is set greater than 160° F (71° C) and the control detects an exhaust temperature rise 25° F greater than set point, this will be the trip point and the S.A.F.E. system routine will activate. If set point is below 160° F (71° C), the trip point will be 185° F (85° C).

Once the S.A.F.E. system routine is activated, the control will display “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM ACTIVATED” and water will be injected into the basket (tumbler) chamber. Any time water is being injected into the basket (tumbler), the basket (tumbler) drive will turn the load for 1-second every 15-seconds. This process will continue for a minimum of 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes have elapsed, the control will check if the temperature remained above trip point; if so, the water will remain on. The control will continue to check if the temperature is above trip point every 30-seconds. If the water has been on for a constant 10 minutes, the water will be turned off, regardless of the temperature, and the control will display “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM WAS ACTIVATED.” If the temperature has dropped below trip point, the control will turn off the water prior to 10 minutes.

SYSTEM RESET

After the microprocessor determines that the situation is under control and shuts the water being injected into the basket (tumbler) off, the microprocessor display will read “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM WAS ACTIVATED,” and the horn/tone will sound until reset manually.

NON-COIN – To reset the microprocessor once the control displays “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM WAS ACTIVATED,” press the red “STOP/CLEAR” key on the keyboard (touch pad).

COIN – To reset the microprocessor once the control displays “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM WAS ACTIVATED,” press and hold the red “PAUSE” key for 3-seconds on the keyboard (touch pad).

S.A.F.E. SYSTEM WATER VALVE CHECK

The operation of the water solenoid valve can be tested to ensure that the water supply system and valve are functional. Before attempting a system check, be sure that ALL water supply shutoff valves to the dryer are in the OPEN position; the dryer must be in the “READY” mode with no cycle loaded or in progress.

NON-COIN

Press and hold the red “STOP/CLEAR” key (while in “READY” mode and no cycle is in progress).

Press and hold the “A” key.

Water valve will open and water will be dispensed

into basket (tumbler) area as long as both keys are held.

The Phase 7 non-coin microprocessor controller (computer) will prompt the user to perform a S.A.F.E. system valve check at every 4000 hours to ensure proper functionality. At the 4000 hour mark, the control will wait for end of the cycle and then will prompt the user to “PLEASE EMPTY TUMBLER, THEN PRESS THE ‘STOP/CLEAR’AND ‘A’ KEYS TO TEST THE WATER VALVE.” When the ‘STOP/CLEAR’ and ‘A’ keys are pressed, the control will activate the S.A.F.E. system water valve for 2-seconds, at which point the control will prompt the user with the following message: “IF WATER DID NOT TURN ON, CALL FOR SERVICE. THANK YOU.”

 

NOTE:

!

The control will not let the user continue until

the valve test has been completed.

 

 

COIN

While the control is in the program mode, Press and hold the PAUSE key for 3-seconds to get into the valve test mode. Valve test mode: The control will display “PRESS AND HOLD MEDIUM TO OPEN WATER VALVE”. When the medium key is pressed, the control will activate the water output

S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DIAGNOSTICS

NON-COINIn the event that the Phase 7 non-coin microprocessor controller (computer) detects a fault in the S.A.F.E. system, the control will display the message “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED…READY.” To find out why the S.A.F.E. system is disabling, press and hold the red “STOP/CLEAR” and green “START” keys. This will cause the control to display a diagnostic message, as detailed in the “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM Diagnostics Messages” section.

S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DIAGNOSTICS MESSAGES

OPEN THERMISTOR PROBE – This message indicates that the S.A.F.E. system thermistor probe either is not connected or is damaged. If this condition is detected, the Phase 7 noncoin control will immediately enter S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode.

SHORTED THERMISTOR PROBE – This message indicates that the S.A.F.E. system thermistor probe is damaged or the wiring is shorted. If this condition is detected, the Phase 7 non-coin control will immediately enter S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode.

DISCONNECTED WATER VALVE – This message indicates that the water valve is open or that it is not connected to the control. If this condition is detected, the Phase 7 non-coin control will continue to monitor the condition for a period of 5 minutes before entering S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode. Once the condition is corrected, the control will continue to monitor the condition for 1 minute before exiting S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode.

SHORTED WATER VALVE – This message indicates that the water valve is shorted or that the wiring to the valve is shorted. If this condition is detected, the Phase 7 non-coin control will continue to monitor the condition for a period of 5 minutes before entering S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode. Once the condition is corrected, the control will continue to monitor the condition for 1 minute before exiting S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode.

WATER NOT CONNECTED – This indicates that there is no water pressure at the water valve. This will occur if water is not connected to the dryer, or if there is low water pressure in the water line coming to the dryer. This could also signify a defective pressure switch or defective wiring to the pressure switch. If this condition is detected, the Phase 7 non-coin control will continue to monitor the condition for a period of 5 minutes before entering S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode. Once the condition is corrected, the control will continue to monitor the condition for 1 minute before exiting S.A.F.E. SYSTEM DISABLED mode.

STARTING A CYCLE WHEN COMPUTER IS IN “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM IS DISABLED” MODE

NON-COINWhen the S.A.F.E. system is disabled, the user can still start a cycle. However, when a cycle is started, the control will display the following message: “S.A.F.E. SYSTEM IS DISABLED. PRESS ‘START’ TO CONTINUE.” This message will be displayed every time a cycle is started, until the disabling condition has been corrected.

COIN – When the S.A.F.E. system is disabled, the user can still start a cycle. Simply insert credit and select a cycle to start.
