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

B. UNPACKING/SETTING UP
Remove protective shipping material (i.e., plastic wrap and/or 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.
To increase bearing life and improve efficiency, the dryer should be tilted slightly to the rear.
The lint coops of ALL AD-758DV dryers are supported during shipping by a bracket. REMOVE THIS BRACKET
BEFORE STARTING THE DRYER.
1. 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). To increase bearing life and
improve efficiency, the dryer should be tilted slightly to the rear.
11
C. DRYER ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials and must be located a minimum of
12-inches (30.48 cm), 18-inches (45.72 cm) or more is recommended for ease of installation, maintenance, and
service above the dryer’s outer top, except along the front of the dryer which may be partially closed in if desired.
The clearance between the bulkhead header and the dryer must be a minimum of 4-inches (10.16 cm) and must
not extend more than 4-inches (10.16 cm) to the rear of the front. The bulkhead facing must not be closed in
ALL the way to the top of the dryer. A 1-inch (2.54 cm) clearance is required.
NOTE: Allowances must be made for the opening of the control door.
Dryers may be positioned sidewall to sidewall. However, a 1/16” (1.5875 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 above for details.
NOTE: Air considerations are important for proper and efficient operation.
IMPORTANT: Even though a minimum of only 12-inches (30.48 cm) is required, 18-inches
(45.72 cm) or more is suggested. The additional clearance is advantageous for
ease of installation and service.
IMPORTANT: When fire sprinkler systems are located above the dryers, a minimum of 18-inches
(45.72 cm) above the dryer console (module) is required. Dryers may be positioned
sidewall to sidewall however, a 1/16” (1.5875 mm) minimum allowance is required
between dryers (or wall) for ease of installation and maintenance. Allowances must
be made for the opening and closing of the control door and the lint door.
12
D. FRESH AIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it, passes this air through the basket (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.
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to assure proper performance of each dryer. An
unrestricted source of air is necessary for each dryer. An airflow of 750 cfm (cubic feet per minute), (21.24 cmm
[cubic meters per minute]) must be supplied to each dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance from
the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 1-1/2 square feet (0.14 square meters) is required for each dryer.
The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
To compensate for the use of registers or louvers used over the openings, this make-up air must be increased by
approximately thirty-three percent (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 four (4) dryers, two (2) unrestricted openings measuring 2 feet by 1-1/2 feet (0.61
meters by 0.46 meters), (6 square feet [0.56 square meters]) is acceptable.
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.
13
E. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
1. General Exhaust Ductwork Information
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, overheating
of the dryer, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches, burner hi-limits, or basket (tumbler)
hi-heat thermostats. The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.
CAUTION: This dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors.
CAUTION: DRYER MUST BE EXHAUSTED TO THE OUTDOORS.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that exhaust or booster fans not be used in the exhaust ductwork
system.
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.
Horizontal Venting:
When single dryer venting is used, the length of ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet
must not exceed 25 feet (7.62 meters). The minimum diameter of this ductwork must be at least
8-inches (20.32 cm). In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from the last dryer to the
outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters). The shape of the ductwork is not critical
so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns be avoided;
use 30° and/or 45° angles instead. The radius of the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter
of the duct. Including basket (tumbler)/dryer elbow connections or elbows used for outside protection from
the weather, no more than two (2) elbows should be used in the exhaust duct run. If more than two (2)
elbows are used, the cross-sectional area of the ductwork must be increased. 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.
Vertical Venting:
When single dryer venting is used, the length of the ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet
must not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters). The minimum diameter of this ductwork must be at least
8-inches (20.32 cm). In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from the last dryer to the
outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters). The shape of the ductwork is not so critical
so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns be avoided;
use 30º and/or 45º 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.
14
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less
than 0 and must not exceed 0.7 inches (1.74 mb) of water column (W.C.).
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.
a. Outside Ductwork Protection
1) 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.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.
2. Single Dryer Venting
Where possible, it is suggested to provide a separate exhaust duct for each dryer. The exhaust duct 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. It is suggested that the use of 90° turns in the ducting be avoided; use 30° and/or 45° angles
instead. The shape of the exhaust ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum cross section area is
provided.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less
than 0 and must not exceed 0.7 inches (1.74 mb) of water column.

IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the ductwork can only be
increased to an extent. When the ductwork approaches the maximum limits noted in
this manual, a professional heating, venting, and air conditioning (HVAC) firm should
be consulted for proper venting information.
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.
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.
a. Outside Ductwork Protection
1) 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.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.

5. For single dryer venting, the size of the ductwork must be a minimum of 8-inches (20.32 cm) for short runs
(refer to the illustration on page 16). For longer runs, the diameter must be increased.
6. The inside of the ductwork should be as smooth as possible with no projections from sheet metal screws.
7. Ducts added should overlap the duct to which it is to be connected.
8. ALL ducts should be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building.
9. Inspection (cleaning) doors should be installed throughout strategic points in the ductwork for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
10. Wherever the ductwork passes through 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.
11. The outside of the ductwork must be protected from the weather. A 90° elbow must be used for horizontal
run and when vertically through a roof by using a 180° turn to point the opening downward. The distance
between the exhaust duct and the nearest obstruction (i.e., roof or ground) must be twice the diameter of
the duct.
12. DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust ductwork.
13. Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer’s exhaust duct area must be no less than 0
and must not exceed 0.7 inches (1.74 mb) of water column (W.C.).
14. Exhaust ductwork outlets should not be located in an area directly where make-up air openings are

ordinances and must be done by a qualified professional. It is important that gas pressure regulators meet
applicable pressure requirements, and that gas meters be rated for the total amount of ALL the appliance
BTUs being supplied.
The dryer is provided with a 3/4” 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 3/4” N.P.T. 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.
IMPORTANT: This gas dryer is not provided with an internal gas supply shut off and an external gas
supply shut off must be provided.
28
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.
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.
IMPORTANT: Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid
detergent works well).

H. STEAM INFORMATION
It is your responsibility to have ALL plumbing connections made by a qualified professional to assure that the
steam 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 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 ADS-758DV is manufactured with a pneumatic (piston) damper system, which requires
an external supply of air (80 PSI +/- 10 PSI [5.51 bars +/- 0.68 bars]).
1. 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.
IMPORTANT: Coil failure due to improper PH level will VOID THE WARRANTY.

3. Installation Instructions
To insure an adequate supply of steam is provided, be sure that the steam lines and steam return lines are
sized and laid out as stipulated in this manual. Inadequate steam 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.
30
IMPORTANT: Steam coil failure due to water hammer by wet steam will VOID THE WARRANTY.
a. The pressure of the condensate in the steam supply 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.
b. The steam supply piping to the dryer must include a 12-inch (30.48 cm) rise along with a drip trap and
check valve. This will prevent any condensate from entering the steam coil.
c. 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.
d. 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.
e. 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.
1) A trap with a capacity of 600 lbs (273 kg) of condensate per hour at 125 PSI (8.62 bars) is needed
for each unit.
f. 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.
g. 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 (0.30 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.

4. Steam Damper Air System Connections
The ADS-758DV 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.

c. Air Regulation
No air regulator or filtration is provided with the dryer. External regulation/filtration of 80 PSI (5.51 bars)
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 insure that correct and clean air pressure
is achieved.
5. 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.
33
6. Steam Damper Air Piston (Flow Control) Operation Adjustment
Damper operation was tested and adjusted prior to shipping at 80 PSI (5.51 bars). If damper air adjustment
is necessary, locate the flow control valve and make the necessary adjustments as noted below.
34
I. PREPARATION FOR OPERATION/START-UP
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 to
the upper left side panel area behind the top control (access) door. In the case of 208 VAC or 240 VAC, the
supply voltage must match the electric service specifications of the data exactly.
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 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 assure that this
important safety control is functioning. (Refer to sail switch adjustment on page 37.)
5. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for tightness and security.
6. GAS MODELS - Be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.
7. Check ALL back guard panels and service box covers have been replaced.
8. Check the lint drawer to assure that it is closed and secured in place.
9. Rotate the basket (tumbler/drum) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
10. STEAM MODELS - Check to insure that a clean, dry, and regulated air supply (80 PSI [5.51 bars]) is on
the dryer (with air operated damper system only).
11. STEAM MODELS - Check to insure ALL steam shutoff valves are open.
12. STEAM MODELS - Check steam damper operation.
13. Check basket (tumbler) bearing setscrews to insure that they are ALL tight.
14. Check vent is connected to the dryer and is exhausted to the outdoors.
15. There should be a source of fresh air entering the room. This source should not be near where the dryers
exhaust to the outside.
35
J. 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.
2. Refer to the Operating Instructions for starting your particular model dryer.
3. GAS MODELS ONLY
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 shutoff valves are open.
NOTE: Gas dryers are equipped with a Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) system, which has internal
diagnostics. If ignition is not established within three (3) times, 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.
b. A gas pressure test should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer to assure 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) Water Column.
Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas --- 10.5 Inches (26.1 mb) Water Column.
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.
4. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety related circuits:
a. Door Switch(es)
b. Hi-Limit Thermostats
c. Cycling Thermostat
d. GAS AND ELECTRIC MODELS ONLY - Sail Switch
36
NOTE: 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.
5. 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.
6. The dryer should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure 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.
7. Check the electric service phase sequence (3-phase [3ø] models only). While the dryer is operating, check
to see if the blower (impellor/fan) wheel is rotating in the proper direction. Looking from the front, the
blower (impellor/fan) wheel 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 (impellor/fan) wheel is rotating in the wrong direction, this will not only
drastically reduce drying efficiency, but it can also cause premature component failure.
37
K. PREOPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS

SECTION VI
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 ductwork 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 airflow. 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.
IMPORTANT: Dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint build up.
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 screen is located in a drawer below the main door. Open the lint drawer, brush or vacuum the lint off the lint
screen, and remove the lint. Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.
NOTE: The frequency of cleaning the lint screen can best be determined from experience at each
location.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from lint chamber, thermostat, and microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor bracket)
area.
WARNING: TO AVOID THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.
STEAM DRYERS
Clean the steam coil fins. We suggest using compressed air and a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment.
42
WARNING: When cleaning steam coil fins, be careful not to bend the fins. If fins are bent, straighten
by using a fin comb, which is available from local air conditioning supply houses.
90 DAYS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system and from dryer’s internal
exhaust ducting.
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
AIR.
WARNING: INSPECT AND REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE
THE BACK DRAFT DAMPER TO BIND OR STICK.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shutdown of
heat circuit safety switches or thermostats.
NOTE: When cleaning the dryer cabinet(s), avoid using harsh abrasives. A product intended for the
cleaning of appliances is recommended.
B. ADJUSTMENTS
7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION AND EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, (bearing 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 (door switches, lint drawer switch, sail switch,
burner, and hi-limit thermostats).
C. LUBRICATION
The motor bearings, idler bearings...and under normal/most conditions the basket (tumbler) bearings are permanently
lubricated. It is physically possible to re-lubricate the basket (tumbler) bearings if you choose to do so even
though this practice is not necessary. Use Shell Alvania #2 or its equivalent. The basket (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 ADC by ordering kit Part No. 882159, which includes
two (2) fittings.
43
D. LINT DRAWER REMOVAL
To remove the lint drawer from the dryer pull drawer out approximately halfway. Rotate/move lint drawer stop
hinge (refer to the illustration below) downward and pull drawer out.
IMPORTANT: After replacing the lint drawer back into the dryer, be sure to rotate/move hinge back
to the upward stop position.
44
SECTION VII
TROUBLESHOOTING
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST DISCONTINUE AND LOCKOUT THE ELECTRIC SUPPLY
AND THE GAS SUPPLY OR THE STEAM SUPPLY BEFORE ANY
COVERS OR GUARDS ARE REMOVED FROM THE DRYER 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.
WARNING: ALL SERVICE AND TROUBLESHOOTING SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY
A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL OR SERVICE AGENCY.

PROCEDURE FOR FUNCTIONAL CHECK
OF REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS
1. Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Board
a. Upon completing installation of the replacement microprocessor controller (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 controller (computer) light
emitting diode (L.E.D.) display are on. (Refer to the illustration below.)
d. Verify that the motor(s), heat, and door indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor controller
(computer) board are lit. (Refer to the illustration below.)
58
e. Open main door. The dryer must stop and ALL indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor
controller (computer) board must go out. (Refer to the illustration on the previous page.)
f. Try to restart the dryer with the main door open.
g. The microprocessor controller (computer) board’s light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display must read “DOOR.”
h. Close the main door and restart the dryer.
i. Functional check of microprocessor controller (computer) board is complete.
2. For Models With Johnson Controls Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Module (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 “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 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 30seconds) the DSI module will
“LOCKOUT” (L.E.D. flashes).
A steady L.E.D. indicator indicates
normal operation.
No L.E.D. indicator indicates a power or
an internal failure has occurred.
