American Dryer Corp.
113362-8
Fresh Air Supply Requirements _____
Exhaust Requirements ______________
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it,
passes this air through the tumbler, and exhausts it out of the
building. Therefore, the room air must be continually
replenished from the outdoors. If the make-up air is
inadequate, drying time and drying efficiency will be adversely
affected. Ignition problems and sail switch “fluttering”
problems may result, as well as premature motor failure from
overheating. The dryer must be installed with provisions for
adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
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-limit
protector thermostat. The dryer must be installed with a proper
exhaust duct connection to the outside.
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration
to ensure proper performance of each dryer. As a general
rule, an unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors
(atmosphere) of a minimum of 2-1/2 feet 2 (0.2322576
meters2) is required for each dryer. (Based on 1 inch2 [6.4516
cm 2] per 1,000 Btus [251.9958 kcal].)
Caution
!
This dryer produces combustible lint and must be
exhausted to the outdoors.
Improperly sized or installed exhaust ductwork can create
a potential fire hazard.
The 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. Single or independent dryer venting
is recommended. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns be
avoided; use 30° and/or 45° bends instead. The radius of
the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter of
the duct. All ductwork 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 ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint
from escaping into the building. Inspection doors should be
installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for
periodic inspection and cleaning of lint from the ductwork.
Important
!
A = 2 feet (0.61 meters)
It is recommended that exhaust or booster fans
not be used in the exhaust ductwork system.
Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer/
magnehelic in the exhaust duct must be no less than 0 and
must not exceed 0.3 in WC (0.74 mb).
B = 2-1/2 feet (0.762 meters)
To compensate for the use of registers or louvers used over
the openings, this area must be increased by approximately
33%. Make-up air openings should not be located in an area
directly near where exhaust vents exit the building.
It is not necessary to have a separate 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 all the dryers.
EXAMPLE: For a bank of 4 dryers, 2 unrestricted openings
measuring 2 feet by 2-1/2 feet (0.61 meters by 0.762 meters)
are acceptable.
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.
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 26 gauge
(0.0195-inches [0.50 mm]) thick.”
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.

Outside Ductwork Protection
Vertical Venting
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 (refer
to the diagram below).
When vertical dryer venting is used, the length of the ductwork
from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet, must not exceed
20 feet (6.096 meters). The minimum diameter of this
ductwork must be at least 18-inches (45.72 cm) even though
the dryer exhaust duct connection is only 16-inches (40.64
cm). Including tumbler/dryer elbow connections or elbows
used for outside protection from the weather, no more than 3
elbows should be used in the exhaust duct run. If more than
3 elbows are used, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork
must be increased.
Important
!
Do not use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside
opening of the exhaust ductwork.
NOTE 1 Opening must be 2-inches (5.08 cm) larger than the duct (all the way
around). The duct must be centered within this opening.
NOTE 2 Distance should be 2 times the diameter of the duct to the nearest
obstruction.
Single Dryer Venting
Important
!
For extended ductwork runs, the cross-sectional
area of the ductwork can only be increased to an
extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum
limits as noted in this manual, a professional HVAC firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
Horizontal Venting
When horizontal dryer venting is used, the length of the
ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet, must
not exceed 20 feet (6.096 meters). The minimum diameter
of this ductwork must be at least 16-inches (40.64 cm).
Including tumbler/dryer elbow connections or elbows used
for outside protection from the weather, no more than 1 elbow
should be used in the exhaust duct run. If more than 1 elbow
is used, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork must be
increased.

Important
Electrical Requirements
!
For extended ductwork runs, the cross-sectional
area of the ductwork can only be increased to an
extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum
limits as noted in this manual, a professional HVAC firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
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 airflow. The main duct should be tapered,
with the diameter increasing before each individual duct is
added. The minimum diameter of the individual ductwork
must be at least 16-inches (40.64 cm).
All electrical connections must be made by a properly licensed
and competent electrician. This is to ensure that the electrical
installation is adequate and conforms to local and state
regulations or codes. In the absence of such codes, all
electrical connections, materials, and workmanship must
conform to the applicable requirements of the National
Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST EDITION or in
Canada, the Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA
C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION.
!
Failure to comply with these codes or ordinances,
and/or the requirements stipulated in this manual
can result in personal injury or component failure.
Important
!
No more than 4 dryers should be connected to 1
main common duct.
The illustration below shows the minimum cross-sectional
area for multiple dryer round or square venting. These figures
must be increased if the main duct run from the last dryer to
where it exhausts to the outdoors is longer than 20 feet (6.096
meters) or has more than 1 elbow in it.

Water Information ___________________
TYPICAL NATURAL GAS INSTALLATION
Before You 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
ensure that the plumbing installation is adequate and
conforms to local, state, and federal regulations or codes.
It is the installer’s or owner’s responsibility to see that the
required water pressure, pipe size, or connections are
provided. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility if
the fire suppression system is not connected, installed, or
maintained properly.
TYPICAL L.P. GAS INSTALLATION
Installation
Water Supply
The fire suppression system must be supplied with a
minimum water pipe size of 1/2-inch (12.7 mm) 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.
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.
Consistent gas pressure is essential at all gas connections.
It is recommended that a 1-inch (2.54 cm) 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 in
WC (29.9 mb) pressure.
!
Note
A WC test pressure of 3.5 in WC (8.7 mb) for
natural gas and 10.5 in WC (26.1 mb) for 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).
!
Warning
Never test for leaks with a flame!!!
Warning
!
If the water in the supply line or water solenoid
valve freezes, the fire suppression system will be
inoperative!!
Water Connections
The water connection is made to the 3/4”-11.5 NH hose
adaptor, located in the upper right rear of the dryer. A 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 2 thread designs are not compatible.
It is recommended that a filter or strainer be installed in the
water supply line.
!
Important
Flexible supply line/coupling must be used.
Solenoid valve failure due to hard plumbing
connections will void warranty.
The dryer is to be connected to the water mains using a
new hose set and the old hose set should not be reused.

Optional Manual Bypass
Provisions are made in the dryer’s fire suppression system
for the installation of an optional manual bypass. Depending
on the model dryer, the connections for the manual bypass
are made at the “T” or “three way” fitting, located in the outlet
supply side of the water solenoid valve. The manual ball
cock shutoff valve must be located outside of the dryer at a
distance from the dryer where it is easily accessible. The
use and connections of this manual bypass are at the option
or discretion of the owner.
The water connection for the manual bypass is made to the
“T” or “three way” fitting, which has a 3/8” F.P.T. and a coupling
must be used to provide the minimum 1/2-inch (12.7 mm)
supply (feed) line.
113362-7
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.
Electrical Requirements
No independent external power source or supply connection
is necessary. The 24-volt power to operate the fire
suppression system is accomplished internally 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 fire suppression system is
inoperative!!

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 data label. In the case of
208 VAC or 240 VAC, the supply voltage must match
the electric service exactly.
• GAS MODELS – Check to ensure that the dryer is
connected to the type of gas indicated on the data
label.
• GAS MODELS – Be sure that all gas shutoff valves are
in the open position.
• 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. (Refer to Sail
Switch Adjustment in the Preoperational Tests
section.)
• Be sure all back panels (guards) and electric box
covers are in place.
• Be sure the service doors are closed and securely in
place.
• Be sure the lint door/drawer is securely in place.
• Rotate the tumbler (drum) by hand to be sure it moves
freely.
• Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for
tightness and security.
• Check tumbler bearing setscrews to ensure they are
all tight.
• Check that the vent is connected to the dryer and is
exhausted to the outdoors.
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 electric power to the dryer.
Refer to the Operating Instructions for starting your particular
model dryer.
Gas Dryers
Gas dryers are equipped with a DSI system, which has
internal diagnostics. If ignition is not established within 3
attempts, the heat circuit in the DSI module will “lockout”
until it is manually reset. To reset the DSI 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 WC pressure is correct
and consistent.
Note
!
WC pressure requirements (measured at the
pressure tap of the gas valve body):
Natural Gas ______________________ 3.5 in WC (8.7 mb)
L.P. Gas ________________________ 10.5 in WC (26.1 mb)
!
Important
There is no regulator provided in an L.P. dryer.
The WC pressure must be regulated at the source
(L.P. tank), or an external regulator must be added to each
dryer.
Safety Related Circuits
Make a complete operational check of all safety related
circuits:
• Door Switch(es)
• Hi-Limit Thermostats
• Sail Switch
Sail Switch Adjustment – To check for proper sail switch
operation (for gas and electric models only), open the main
door and while holding main door switch plunger in, start
dryer. Dryer should start but heat circuit should not be activated
(on). If the heat system is activated, the sail switch is
improperly adjusted and must be adjusted by bending the
actuator arm of the sail switch toward the burner box. If the
actuator arm is bent too far toward the burner box of the dryer,
the dryer may not have heat when needed. After any
adjustment to the sail switch, the above procedure must be
repeated to verify proper operation of the sail switch.
The dryer should be operated through 1 complete cycle to
ensure that no further adjustments are necessary and that
all components are functioning properly.
Make a complete operational check of all operating controls.
For microprocessor model check controller (computer)
programs/selections: each microprocessor controller
(computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the
most commonly used parameter (program) selections. If
computer program changes are required, refer to the
computer programming manual which was shipped with the
dryer.
Open all shutoff valves.
Tumbler Coating
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.
The 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 tumbler to remove this coating.
Note
!
16
During the purging period, check to be sure that
all gas shutoff valves are open.
American Dryer Corp.

Preoperational Instructions _________
3-Phase (3ø) Electric Service
Check the electric service phase sequence (3-phase [3ø]
models only). While the dryer is operating, check to see if the
blower/fan is rotating in the proper direction. Looking from
the front, the blower/fan should spin in the CW direction, if it
is, the phasing is correct. If the phasing is incorrect, reverse
2 of the 3 leads at connections L1, L2, and L3 of the power
supply to the dryer.
Important
Important
!
For more detailed information regarding the
microprocessor controller (computer), refer to the
microprocessor user’s manual included with the dryer.
Microprocessor Controller (Computer)
The L.E.D. display reads “READY” (no cycle in progress).
!
If the blower/fan is rotating in the wrong direction, it
will drastically reduce drying efficiency and it can
also cause premature component failure.
Press the letter on the keypad corresponding to the cycle
desired (i.e., key “D”).
Spin and Dwell (Stop) Times Adjustment
The L.E.D. display will read MANUAL DRYING CYCLE D, 00:00
MIN REMAIN.
Reversing tumbler dryers should never be operated with less
than a 63 lb (28.57 kg) load (dry weight), since the load’s
weight affects tumbler coast time during a direction reversal
command. It is important that the tumbler comes to a
complete stop prior to starting in opposite direction.
Microprocessor Models – Spin and dwell (stop) times
are adjustable in the Manual (Timed) Mode. Spin and dwell
(stop) times are not adjustable in the Automatic Mode and
have been preprogrammed into the microprocessor controller
(computer) for 150-seconds spin time in forward direction,
120-seconds in the reverse direction and a 5-second dwell
(stop) time.
Mechanical Timer Models – Timer models have an
electronic reversing timer in the electrical service box, which
is located in the upper right front area of the dryer.
Both the dwell (stop) time and the tumbler spin time are
adjustable by mode selection switches, located on the
electronic timer (as noted in the illustration below).
The dryer will then start (i.e., blower, tumbler, and heat).
Note
!
The dryer can be stopped at any time by pressing
the “STOP/CLEAR” key, at this time the dryer will
go into a cycle pause. If the “STOP/CLEAR” key is pressed
again at this point, the cycle that was in progress will be
cancelled and returned to the “READY” state.
When the programmed drying time has expired, the Phase 7
non-coin microprocessor controller (computer) will proceed
into the Cool Down Cycle.
Once the Cool Down Cycle begins at the end of the heat
cycle, the L.E.D. display will read COOL DOWN TEMP
___/___ MINUTES remaining. At the end of the heat cycle,
the dryer will shut off the heat and continue the fan and
tumbler until the Cool Down Time or temperature is reached.
Shutdown Instructions ______________
If the dryer is to be shutdown (taken out of service) for a
period of time, the following must be performed:
Discontinue power to the dryer either at the external disconnect
switch or the circuit breaker.
Discontinue the heat supply:
Gas Models – Discontinue the gas supply.
SHUT OFF external gas supply shutoff valve.
SHUT OFF internal gas supply shutoff valve located in the

Routine Maintenance ________________
Every 6 Months
Cleaning
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished
exhaust ductwork system and from dryer’s internal exhaust
ducting.
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 airflow. The accumulation of lint
can restrict this airflow. If the guidelines in this section are
met, the 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. 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 6 to 8 operational
(running) hours per day.
Important
!
Dryer produces combustible lint and must be
exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6 months,
inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint buildup.
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
door/drawer is located just below the loading door of the
dryer. Open the lint door/drawer, brush the lint off the lint
screen, and remove the lint. Inspect lint screen and replace
if torn.
Weekly
Clean lint accumulation from lint chamber, thermostat, and
microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor bracket) area.
!
!
Note
The accumulation of lint in the exhaust ductwork
can create a potential fire hazard.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
Check back draft dampers in the exhaust ductwork.
Inspect and remove any lint accumulation, which can
cause the damper to bind or stick.
A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can
result in slow drying and shutdown of heat circuit safety
switches or thermostats.
When cleaning the dryer cabinet(s), avoid using harsh
abrasives. A product intended for the cleaning of
appliances is recommended.
Adjustments
7 Days After Installation
and Every 6 Months Thereafter
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, setscrews, grounding
connections and nonpermanent gas connections (unions,
shutoff valves, and orifices). Motor and drive belts should be
examined. Cracked or seriously frayed belts should be
replaced. Tighten loose V-belts when necessary. Complete
operational check of controls and valves. Complete
operational check of all safety devices (lint door/drawer switch,
door switches, sail switch, and hi-limit thermostats).
Lubrication
The motor bearings, idler bearings, and under normal/most
conditions the tumbler bearings are permanently lubricated.
It is physically possible to relubricate the tumbler bearings if
you choose to do so even though this practice is not
necessary. Use Shell Alvania #2 grease or its equivalent.
The tumbler bearings used in the dryer do 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 from the manufacturer.
Warning
To avoid the hazard of electrical shock,
discontinue electrical supply to the dryer.
90 Days
Remove lint from around the tumbler, fan blades, and
surrounding areas.
Remove lint from gas valve burner area with a dusting brush
or vacuum cleaner attachment.
Clean any lint accumulation in and around the motor(s) casing
opening.
Note
!
To prevent damage, avoid cleaning and/or
touching ignitor/flame-probe assembly.

Procedure for Functional Check
of Replacement Components _______
For Models with DSI Module (Type I)
Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Board
Phase 7 Non-Coin Models
Upon completing installation of the replacement
microprocessor controller (computer) board, reestablish
power to the dryer.
Start the drying cycle by pressing any of the preset cycles in
letters A-F.
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 “LOCKOUT” 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 3 retries/trials (the initial try and 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 “LOCKOUT” (L.E.D. diagnostic indicator flashes).
Verify that the applicable indicator lights on the
microprocessor controller (computer) board are lit. (Refer to
the illustration below.)
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 DSI Module (Type II)
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 “LOCKOUT” 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 3 retries/trials (the initial try and 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 “LOCKOUT” (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.

Data Label Information ______________
Manual Reset
Burner Hi-Limit Instructions _________
Phase 7
This dryer was manufactured with a manual reset burner
hi-limit 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
keypad 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.
Mechanical Timer
This dryer was manufactured with a manual reset burner
hi-limit 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.
When contacting ADC, the information on the data label is
required to ensure proper service/parts assistance. The data
