IMPORTANT INFORMATION
A. RECEIVING and HANDLING
The dryer is shipped in a protective stretch wrap cover with protective cardboard corners and top cover (or
optional box) as a means of preventing damage in transit. Upon delivery, the dryer and/or packaging, and wooden
skid should be visually inspected for shipping damage. If any damage whatsoever is noticed, inspect further
before delivering carrier leaves.
Dryers Damaged in Shipment:
1. ALL dryers should 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 the number refused must be noted
on the receipt.
4. If you determine that the dryer was damaged after the trucker has left your location, you should call the
delivering carrier's freight terminal immediately and file a claim. 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. It is your responsibility to file freight
claims. Dryer/parts damaged in transit cannot be claimed under warranty.
5. Freight claims are the responsibility of the consignee, and ALL claims must be filed at the receiving end.
ADC assumes no responsibility for freight claims or damages.
6. If you need assistance in handling the situation, please contact the ADC Traffic Manager at
(508) 678-9000.
IMPORTANT: The tumbler section of the dryer must be transported and handled in an upright
position at all times.

Installation should be performed by competent technicians in accordance with local and state codes. In the
absence of these codes, the installation must conform to applicable American National Standards:
National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1-LATEST EDITION
and/or
National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-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 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION
(for General Installation and Gas Plumbing)
and/or
Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION
(for Electrical Connections)
A. UNPACKING/SETTING UP
Remove protective shipping material (i.e., plastic wrap, and/or optional shipping box) from dryer.
NOTE: The access keys for the service doors are included in the information packet shipped in
the basket (tumbler). These keys should be removed and put in a safe place yet made
accessible because some will be needed throughout various phases in the installation of
the dryer.
Dryers are shipped with a coin box and coin box faceplate ONLY. The coin box lock is not included and
must be purchased elsewhere or the lock can be ordered as a parts order from the ADC factory.
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 of the base, and two (2) are located in the front. Once the bolts are removed, slide the dryer
off the skid.
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. The dryer is equipped with four
(4) leveling legs, one at each corner of the dryer base. The hex head adjustment bolts for the two (2) front
leveling legs are located directly behind the lower access door, and the rear two (2) adjustments are directly
behind the lower rear back (guard) panel.
9
B. LOCATION OF THE DRYER
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 Canadian Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/
CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION.
1. The dryer must be installed on a sound level floor capable of supporting its weight. It is recommended that
carpeting be removed from the floor area that the dryer is to rest on.
2. The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water and/or weather.
3. The dryer is for use in noncombustible locations.
4. Provisions for adequate air supply must be provided as noted in this manual (refer to Fresh Air Supply in
Section D).
5. Clearance provisions must be made from non-combustible construction as noted in this manual (refer to
Dryer Enclosure Requirements in Section C).
Even though a 12-inch clearance is acceptable, it is recommended that the rear of the dryer be positioned
approximately 2 feet away from the nearest obstruction, i.e., wall, for ease of installation, maintenance,
and service. (Refer to the illustration below.)
6. Provisions must be made for adequate clearances for servicing and for operation as noted in this manual
(refer to Dryer Enclosure Requirements in Section C).
7. Dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors in an area where correct exhaust venting can be achieved as
noted in this manual (refer to Exhaust Requirements in Section E).
8. Dryer must be located in an area where correct exhaust venting can be achieved as noted in this manual
(refer to Exhaust Requirements in Section E).
IMPORTANT: Dryer should be located where a minimum amount of exhaust duct will be
necessary.
10
C. DRYER ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials and must be located a minimum of
twelve (12) inches (18-inches or more is recommended for ease of installation, maintenance , and service) above
the dryer outer top, except along the front of the dryer which may be closed in if desired.
NOTE: Even though a minimum of 12-inches above the dryer outer top is acceptable, a clearance
of 18-inches (or more) is suggested for ease of installation and service
(electrical power connections).
NOTE: When fire sprinkler systems are located above the dryers, a minimum of 12-inches above
the dryer outer top is required.
NOTE: Allowances must be made for opening the control door.
Dryers may be positioned side wall to side wall. However, allowances must be made for opening and closing of
the control door and the lint door. It is suggested that the dryer be positioned about two (2) feet away from the
nearest obstruction for ease of installation, maintenance, and service (to be measured from the back guard.)
(Refer to the previous illustration (on page 10) for details.)
NOTE: Air considerations are important for proper and efficient operation.
D. FRESH AIR SUPPLY
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to assure proper performance of each dryer. An
unrestricted source of 800 cfm is necessary for each dryer. An unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors
(atmosphere) of a minimum of 1-1/2 square feet is required for each dryer. This area must be enlarged if
louvers or registers cover the opening. It is not necessary to have a seperate make-up air opening 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. For example, for a bank of eight (8) dryers, a total make-up air opening
of 12 square feet is required. Two (2) openings measuring 2' by 3' (6 square feet) are acceptable. (Refer to the
illustration on page 12.)
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 fumes will result in irreparable
damage to motors and other dryer components.
11
IMPORTANT: Make-up air openings SHOULD NOT be located near duct work exhaust
outlets. If make-up air opening(s) are too close to the exhaust outlet, lint and
fumes may be drawn back into the dryer area through these openings.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.
12
E. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
Exhaust duct work should be designed and installed by a qualified professional. Improperly
sized duct work will create excessive back pressure which results in slow drying, increased use
of energy, overheating of the dryer, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches,
burner hi-limits, or basket (tumbler) hi-heat thermostats.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
The exhaust duct work should be laid out in such a way that the duct work travels as directly as possible to the
outdoors with as few turns as possible. When single dryer venting is used, the duct work from the dryer to the
outside exhaust outlet should not exceed twenty (20) feet. In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the
distance from the last dryer to the outside exhaust outlet should not exceed twenty (20) feet. The shape of the
exhaust duct work is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided.
1. SINGLE DRYER VENTING
Where possible, it is suggested to provide a separate exhaust duct for each dryer. The exhaust duct work
should be laid out in such a way that the duct work travels as directly as possible to the outdoors with as few
turns as possible. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º or 45º angles
instead. The shape of the exhaust duct work is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is
provided.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket exhaust duct
area should not exceed 0.3 inches of water column.
It is suggested that the duct work from each dryer not exceed 20 feet with no more than two (2) elbows.
If the duct work exceeds 20 feet or has numerous elbows, the cross-sectional area of the duct work must
be increased in proportion to length or number of elbows in it.
IMPORTANT: For extended duct work runs, the cross-sectional area of the duct work can only be
increased to an extent. When the duct work approaches the maximum limits as noted
in this manual, a professional HVAC firm should be consulted for proper venting
information.
The duct work should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions
which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be
connected. ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the
building. Also, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
13
NOTE: Where the exhaust duct passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible
materials, the opening must be 2-inches larger (all the way around) than the duct. The
duct must be centered within this opening.
To protect the outside end of the horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90º elbow bent downward should
be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the exhaust duct work travels vertically up through the
roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the opening downward. In either
case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and nearest obstruction.
ADG-230 and ADG-235
SINGLE DRYER VENTING
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens or caps on the outside opening of exhaust duct work.
14
2. MULTIPLE DRYER (Common) VENTING
If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each dryer, ducts from individual dryers may be
channeled into a "common main duct." The individual ducts should enter the bottom or side of the main
duct at an angle not more than 45º in the direction of the airflow. The main duct should be tapered, with the
diameter increasing before each individual 8-inch duct is added.
IMPORTANT: No more than eight (8) dryers should be connected to one main common duct.
NOTE: Refer to the illustration on page 16 for examples of multiple dryer (common) venting.
The main duct may be any shape so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. The illustration
on page 16 shows the minimum cross-sectional 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 to the outdoors is
unusually long (over 20 feet) or has numerous elbows (more than two [2]) in it.
IMPORTANT: For extended duct work runs, the cross section area of the duct work can only be
increased to an extent. Maximum proportional duct work runs cannot exceed 20
feet more than the original limitations of 20 feet with two (2) elbows. When the duct
work approaches the maximum limits as noted in this manual, a professional HVAC
firm should be consulted for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler) exhaust
duct area should not exceed 0.3 inches W.C. (water column).
The duct work should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions
which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be
connected. ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the
building. Also, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
NOTE: Where the exhaust passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible materials, the
opening must be 2-inches larger (all the way around) than the duct. The duct must be
centered within this opening.
To protect the outside end of the horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90º elbow bent downward
should be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the exhaust duct work travels vertically up
through the roof, it should be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the opening
downward. In either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and
nearest obstruction.

G. GAS INFORMATION
It is your responsibility to have ALL plumbing connections made by a qualified professional to assure that the gas
plumbing installation is adequate and conforms with local and state regulations or codes. In the absence of such
codes, ALL plumbing connections, materials, and workmanship must conform to the applicable
requirements of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1-LATEST EDITION, or in CANADA, the Canadian
Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST
EDITION.
IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with these codes or ordinances, and/or the requirements
stipulated in this manual, can result in PERSONAL INJURY and IMPROPER
OPERATION of the dryer.
The dryer and its individual shut-off 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).
The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
IMPORTANT: Failure to isolate or disconnect the dryer from supply as noted can cause
irreparable damage to the gas valve VOIDING THE WARRANTY.
WARNING: FIRE or EXPLOSION COULD RESULT.
1. Gas Supply
The gas dryer installation must meet the American National Standard...National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1-LATEST EDITION, or in CANADA, the Canadian Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91
(Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION. as well as local codes and
ordinances and must be done by a qualified professional.
NOTE: Undersized gas piping will result in ignition problems, slow drying, increased use of
energy, and can create a safety hazard.
The dryer must be connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the dryer data label. If this information
does not agree with the type of gas available, DO NOT operate the dryer. Contact the distributor who sold
the dryer or the ADC factory.
IMPORTANT: Any burner changes or conversions must be made by a qualified professional.
21
The input ratings shown on the dryer data label are for elevations up to 2,000 feet, unless elevation
requirements of over 2,000 feet were specified at the time the dryer order was placed with the factory.
The adjustment or conversion of dryers in the field for elevations over 2,000 feet are made by changing
each burner orifice. If this conversion is necessary, contact the distributor who sold the dryer or contact
the ADC factory.

b. Natural Gas
Regulation is controlled by each gas valve's internal regulator. Incoming supply pressure must be
consistent between a minimum of 6.0 inches and a maximum of 12.0 inches water column pressure.
c. Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas
Dryers made for use with L.P. gas have the gas valve's internal pressure regulator blocked open so that
the gas pressure must be regulated upstream of the dryer. The pressure measured at each gas valve
pressure tap must be a consistent 10.5 inches water column. There is no regulator or regulation
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.
3. Piping Connections
ALL components / materials must conform to National Fuel Gas Code specifications, or in CANADA, the
Canadian Installation Codes (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing).
It is important that the gas pressure regulators meet applicable pressure requirements and that gas meters
be rated for the total amount of ALL the appliance Btu's being supplied.
The dryer is provided with a 3/4" N.P.T. inlet pipe connection at the upper right hand corner (when viewed
from the rear) of each dryer. It is recommended that a gas shutoff valve be provided to the gas supply line
of each dryer for ease of servicing.
22
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. [liquid propane] gas, the supply tank), the number of tees, other gasoperated appliances on the supply 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" pipe loop be
installed in the supply line serving the bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator must be installed in
the gas supply line (header) if (natural) gas line pressure exceeds 12.0 inches water column pressure.
(Refer to the illustration below for details.)
IMPORTANT: Water column pressure of 3.5 inches for natural gas dryers and 10.5 inches for
L.P. gas 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.
23
WARNING: Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid
detergent works well). NEVER TEST FOR LEAKS WITH A FLAME!!!
It is important that gas pressure regulators meet applicable pressure requirements and that gas meters be
rated for the total amount of appliance Btu's being supplied.
H. PREPARATION FOR OPERATION
The following items should be checked before attempting to operate the dryer:
1. Read ALL "CAUTION," "WARNING," and "DIRECTION" labels attached to the dryer.
2. Check incoming supply voltage to be sure that it is the same as indicated on the dryer data label affixed on
the back of the dryer control (service) door.
3. GAS MODELS - check to assure that the dryer is connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the dryer
data label.
4. GAS & 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 assure that this
important safety control is functioning.
5. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for tightness.
6. GAS MODELS - be sure that ALL gas shut-off valves are in the open position.
7. Be sure ALL back guard panels and service box covers have been replaced..
8. Check the lint door to assure that it is closed and secured in place.
9. Rotate the basket (tumbler) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
I. 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.
1. Turn on electric power to the dryer.
a. COIN MODELS ONLY
1) The L.E.D. display(s) will flash back and forth between "FILL" and the amount needed to start the
dryer (i.e., "25"), meaning that the dryer is available and 25¢ is required to start it.
24
2) Insert the proper number of coins into coin acceptor. Once the correct amount needed to start the
dryer has been inserted, the L.E.D. display(s) will read "PUSH".
3) Start the dryer by pressing the desired setting (i.e, "LO" selection for the upper basket/tumbler). The
L.E.D. display will now read the selection (setting) made and the amount of time vended (i.e., "LO
10").
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart dryer, shut
the main door and press desired setting.
4) Open main door to stop the dryer, and change selection to "PERM PRESS" (medium) setting.
Repeat this procedure, but change the selection (setting) to "HI" (high). This will confirm that
setting key circuits and door switch circuits are functioning properly.
5) Repeat above procedure for the other basket (tumbler).
b. OPL (NON-COIN) MODELS ONLY
1) The L.E.D. display(s) will read "FILL" meaning that the dryer is available.
2) Start the dryer by pressing the "E" of the keyboard (touchpad). The L.E.D. display will quickly show
"Ld 30", "LC 04", "F 180". The dryer will start and the L.E.D. display will show "dr 30".
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart the dryer,
shut the main door and press "ENTER/START".
3) Repeat above procedure for the other basket (tumbler).
2. Heat Circuit Operational Test.
a. 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 shut-off valves are open.
NOTE: Gas dryers are equipped with a Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) system which has internal
diagnostics. If ignition is not established after the first attempt, the heat circuit in the DSI
module will lock out until it is manually reset. To reset the DSI system, open and close
the main door and restart the dryer.
b. Once ignition is established, a gas pressure test should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each
dryer to assure that the water column pressure is correct and consistent.
25
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at the pressure tap of the gas valve body):
Natural Gas .......... 3.5 Inches Water Column
L.P. Gas ................ 10.5 Inches Water Column
IMPORTANT: THERE IS NO REGULATOR PROVIDED IN AN L.P. DRYER. The water
column (W.C.) pressure must be regulated at the source (L.P. tank) or an external
regulator must be added to each dryer.
3. Make a complete operational check of ALL the operating controls to insure that the timing is correct and
that the temperatures are set properly.
4. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., door switches, hi-limit thermostats,
sail switches, basket (tumbler) safety thermostats, etc.).
NOTE: The sail switch can be checked for proper operation by opening the control door while the
dryer is running and the heating unit (burner) active (on). The heating unit(s) should shut off
within a few seconds. If not, make the necessary adjustments.
5. Each basket (tumbler) should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure that no further
adjustments are necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.
IMPORTANT: The dryer baskets (tumblers) are treated with a protective coating. This coating
can be removed by tumbling old clothes or material in the baskets (tumblers)
using a mild detergent to remove the protective coating.
NOTE: Drying and cooling cycles are complete when the L.E.D. display reads ... "donE".
6. Computer Programs / Selections...
Each microprocessor controller (computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the most
commonly used program (parameter) selections. If microprocessor controller (computer) program changes
are required, refer to the computer programming manual which was shipped with the dryer.
7. On models manufactured for 3-phase (3Ø) electrical input voltage, check the electrical service phase
sequence. While the dryer is operating, check to see if the baskets (tumblers) are rotating in the clockwise
(CW) direction (when viewed from the front of the dryer). If the baskets (tumblers) rotate counterclockwise
(CCW), the phasing is incorrect. Reverse the two (2) leads at connections L1, L2, or L3 of the power supply
to the dryer.
26
J. SHUT DOWN INSTRUCTIONS
In the case where the dryer is to be shut down (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 gas supply (for GAS MODELS ONLY):
1) SHUT OFF external gas supply shut-off valve (for both the top basket [tumbler] and the bottom
basket [tumbler] where the independent supply line for each basket [tumbler] is used).
2) SHUT OFF internal gas supply shut-off valve located in the gas valve burner area (for both the
top basket [tumbler] and the bottom basket [tumbler]).
27
SECTION IV
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
A. STARTING THE DRYER
The dryer is available for use when the appropriate microprocessor (computer) L.E.D. display reads "FILL" and/
or the amount needed to start the dryer (i.e., "25"). Once the load has been put into the dryer and the main door
is closed, start the dryer as follows:
1. Insert the proper number of coins into the coin acceptor. Once the correct "Amount To Start" has been
inserted, the L.E.D. display will read "PUSH".
2. Determine fabric setting (selection). Setting "HI TEMP" is the high temperature range, "PERM PRESS" is
the medium-range temperature setting, and "LO TEMP" is the low-range temperature.
Once the fabric temperature setting (selection) has been determined, start the dryer by pressing the fabric
setting key.
3. The dryer will now start, and the L.E.D. display will read the setting and the time vended (i.e., "LO 10").
4. The cycle time will count down until the drying and cooling cycles are completed.
5. Upon completion of the drying cycle and cooling cycle, the dryer will shut off, the tone (buzzer) will sound
for five (5) seconds, and the L.E.D. display will read "donE".
NOTE: If the Anti-Wrinkle program is active, the L.E.D. display will remain reading "donE," and the
microprocessor controller (computer) will proceed through the Anti-Wrinkle program until
the maximum "Active Guard Time" has expired or until the main door is opened, whichever
comes first.
NOTE: If the Anti-Wrinkle program is not active or in use, the L.E.D. display will read "donE" until
the main door is opened, at which time, the L.E.D. display will read "FILL" and/or the "Amount
To Start".
a) Notes
1) The dryer basket (tumbler) can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart dryer,
shut the main door and press desired setting.
NOTE: When a cycle is interrupted by opening the main door, the cycle time will continue to count
downward, regardless if the door is open or closed until a keyboard (touchpad) selection is
made.
28
2) Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by opening and closing
the main door and then making a new selection.
3) Additional time can be purchased at any time. If the dryer is in operation (drying mode) and
additional coins are inserted, the L.E.D. display will change to display the appropriate time vended.

SECTION VII
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 duct work 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 air flow. If the guidelines in this section are met, an ADC
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.
SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
DAILY (beginning of each work shift)
Clean lint from basket(s)/tumbler(s).
Inspect lint screen(s)/drawer(s) for damage and replace if torn.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from around microprocessor temperature sensor probes and sensor bracket
assemblies.
33
90 DAYS
Remove lint from the motor air vents and surrounding area.
IMPORTANT: Lint accumulation will restrict the airflow over the motor(s), causing overheating
and irreparable motor damage. Motor failure due to lint accumulation will
VOID THE WARRANTY.
Remove lint accumulation from around the openings in the dryer's back panels.
Remove lint from gas valve burner train area with a dusting brush or vacuum cleaner attachment.
Remove any lint accumulation from the coin acceptor area, including the optical switch.
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer-furnished exhaust duct work system and from the dryer's
internal exhaust ducting.
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AIR and VENTILATION
AIR.
Inspect and remove lint accumulation from the dryer's exhaust duct work back draft dampers.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and
shutdown of the heat circuit safety switches and/or thermostats.
EVERY 6 MONTHS
In the cleaning of the dryer cabinet, avoid using harsh abrasives. A product for the cleaning of appliances is
recommended.
ALL bearings and set screws should be checked to insure they are tight.
34
B. ADJUSTMENTS
7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION and EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws (bearing set screws), non-permanent gas connections (unions, shut-off valves,
orifices, etc.), electrical terminations, and grounding connections.
Motor and drive belts should be examined. A cracked or seriously frayed belt(s) should be replaced.
Tighten loose belt(s) when necessary and check the alignment.
Complete operational check of controls and valves.
Complete operational check of ALL safety devices (door switches, lint compartment switches, sail switches,
burner and hi-limit thermostats).
C. LUBRICATION
The motor bearings, idler bearings, and tumbler bearings are permanently lubricated. NO LUBRICATION
IS NECESSARY.

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST DISCONNECT and LOCKOUT THE ELECTRIC SUPPLY
and THE GAS SUPPLY BEFORE ANY COVERS or GUARDS ARE
REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE TO ALLOW ACCESS FOR
CLEANING, ADJUSTING, INSTALLATION, or TESTING OF ANY
EQUIPMENT per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)
STANDARDS.
The information provided will help isolate the most probable component(s) associated with the difficulty
described. The experienced technician realizes, however, that a loose connection or broken/ shorted wire may be
at fault where electrical components are concerned ... and not necessarily the suspected component itself.
Electrical parts should always be checked for failure before being returned to the factory.
The information provided should not be misconstrued as a handbook for use by an untrained person making
repairs.
IMPORTANT: When replacing blown fuses, the replacement must be of the exact rating as the fuse
being replaced.

SECTION IX
PROCEDURE FOR FUNCTIONAL CHECK OF
REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS
1. Microprocessor (computer) Board
a. Upon completing installation of the replacement microprocessor (computer) board,
reestablish power to the dryer.
b. Start the drying cycle.
c. Verify that the motor(s) and the heat indicator dots, in the microprocessor (computer) L.E.D.
display are on. (Refer to the illustration below.)
d. Verify that motor(s) heat, and door indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor (computer)
board are lit. (Refer to illustration below.)
42
e. Open main door. The dryer must stop and ALL indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor
(computer) board must go out.
f. Try to restart the dryer with the main door open.
g. The microprocessor (computer) board's L.E.D. display must read "DOOR."
h. Close the main door and restart the dryer.
i. Functional check of microprocessor (computer) board is complete.
2. Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) System
a. Upon completing installation of the replacement
Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) module, reestablish
power to the dryer.
b. Start the drying cycle.
c. The ignition (DSI) module's L.E.D. indicator will
light "red" for up to approximately 1.5 seconds
(prepurge time).
d. The module's indicator light will then turn
“green.” The gas valve will be energized and
the ignitor probe will spark for approximately
8 seconds. The burner flame should now be
established.
e. With the burner flame on, remove the flame
sensor wire from the FS terminal of the DSI
module.
f. The burner flame must shut off and the ignition
module must lock out with the DSI module's
indicator light "red."
g Stop the drying cycle, with the flame sensor wire still removed, restart the drying cycle.
h. The ignition module must proceed through the prepurge, with the indicator light "red," the ignition trial
time of approximately 8 seconds, with the indicator light "green," and then proceed to lock out with the
indicator light "red."
i. Functional check of the Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Module is complete.
1) Replace the flame sensor wire from the FS terminal to the DSI module.
