TECHNICAL BULLETINS VIA FAX DISCONTINUED
156-2
As mentioned in our Technical Bulletin No. 155-5, with today’s media technology, very few individuals or companies
DO NOT own or DO NOT have access to a PC or an e-mail address. Faxing our Technical Bulletin is not the best media
means. It does not provide for flexibility, many transmissions never go through or are incomplete even after many
retries, and the quality of the transmission is poor or not legible (varies with the quality of the fax machine at the
receiving end). In addition, faxing bulletins is limited to one (1) individual to an address, where via e-mail bulletins can
be sent to as many individuals as addresses provided, thus insuring information gets to the appropriate individuals.
For the reasons noted above, this WILL BE THE LAST Technical Bulletin issued via fax. From this point on,
Bulletins will only be available via e-mail.
If you, or individuals in your firm are not on our Technical Bulletin list, please fill out and e-mail the Registration Form
included at the end of this Bulletin.
LITERATURE LISTING
A literature listing is available which includes ALL our publications (both printed and CD-ROMs) that are available
for retail sale. Included in this listing are current sales literature, current and past installation manuals, parts manuals,
service manuals, microprocessor user’s manuals, addendums, and other miscellaneous printed matter. The part
number of each item along with the “net price” (non discountable) is also noted.
This listing (ADC P/N 490207) is available free of charge through normal ADC parts order channels.
NEW RETAIL PARTS PRICE LIST
Our latest retail parts price list (ADC P/N 451000) has a JANUARY 2, 2001 effective date. This new parts price list
is available to download from our website www.amdry.com/serv02.htm. Printed copies are available through normal
parts order channels at a minimum fee of $2 NET. Our next parts price list will be available in April.
Please keep in mind that the parts price list is updated or issued on a quarterly basis: January, April, July, and
October.
IMPORTANT:
1)
Prices are subject to change without notice. The price(s) on the invoice may not
necessarily be the same as the price(s) shown in the parts price listing.
2)
Formal (written) quotes will be valid for thirty (30) days. When submitting parts orders
where a formal quote was issued, the quotation number must be provided at the time, or the
quote will not be valid.
3)
Verbal quotes are not binding and will not be honored.
AD-235ED and AD-236 COIN VAULT COLOR CHANGE
ALL production of the AD-236 and remaining open orders for the AD-235ED manufactured as of JANUARY 2, 2001
no longer have coin vaults and coin box faceplates painted the same color as the dryer. The vault and coin box faceplate
standard color is now black.
AD-235ED and AD-30DS SUPER DISCONTINUED
In an effort to consolidate and standardize our models, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, ADC is no longer accepting
orders for the AD-235ED or the AD-30DS (super) model dryers. This includes ALL versions of the above mentioned
dryers.

ADE-320/ADE-330 OVEN CONTACTOR MOUNTING BRACKET CHANGE
156-3
As the result of the recent bearing box change (re: Technical Bulletin No. 155-3) made on the ADE-320 and
ADE-330, the oven contactor bracket on the electrically heated version of these models has also changed. As of
NOVEMBER 13, 2000 a new oven contactor bracket is used (ADC P/N 850189). This new and the previously used
bracket (ADC P/N 320655) ARE NOT interchangeable.
PLASTIC MAIN DOORS BEING ELIMINATED
ALL use of our plastic main doors as currently used in our
coin product line, and a few other applications will be
discontinued on MAY 1, 2001. As of this May date, ALL dryers
that are currently being manufactured with a plastic type main
door will be manufactured with a “black” steel (cold rolled steel
[CRS]) main door and black trim (where applicable). Due to
this change, the front panel assemblies as well as door switch
assemblies differ. Models presently manufactured without trim
will continue to be produced that way. Again, this change will
affect ALL production where the plastic main door is currently
used.
The plastic main door will still be available as parts orders as
the two (2) doors or assemblies ARE NOT interchangeable.
AD-236 CONTROL DOOR FASTENER CHANGE
As of JANUARY 2, 2001 the Tinnerman clip (ADC P/N 154009) which the screw threads into, to secure the control
door in place has been replaced with a multi-thread type “U” nut (ADC P/N 154011). The two (2) ARE NOT interchangeable
as the hole alignment differs.

AD-81 BLOWER ASSEMBLY NOW DIRECT DRIVE
156-4
As of JANUARY 2, 2001 the model AD-81 (both gas and steam) is now manufactured with a direct drive fan/blower
assembly opposed to pulley/belt driven type arrangement. As the result of this, the cfm of the ADS-81 (steam version)
has been reduced from 2,500 down to 1,700. The exhaust transition piece included with the dryer is now the same for
both which is 12" to 14" opposed to the 12" to 16" as included with steam version prior to this change.
The AD-81 Installation Manual has been updated to include the new installation specifications and a new AD-81
Parts Manual (ADC P/N. 450148) will be available in late February.
AD-60 (50 HZ) BELT CHANGE
Effective DECEMBER 16, 2000 the 50 Hz version of the model AD-60 is now manufactured with a different motor to
idler V-belt. The V-belt has changed from a 4L-630 (ADC P/N 100114) to a 4L-650 (ADC P/N 100109). The larger belt
allows for more of an adjustment range. Again, this change only affects the 50 Hz version of the AD-60 including
1-phase (1ø), 3-phase (3ø) and 3-phase (3ø) reversing.
MID-RANGE DRYER MAIN DOOR CHANGE
As of DECEMBER 21, 2000, the use of silicone used as
a cushion or barrier between the glass and the metal main
door has been eliminated. This cushion (silicone) has been
replaced by a self-adhesive gasket material, which creates
a more even seal, and overall better looking finished product.
Depending on the color of the main door, there are two (2)
gaskets available, black (ADC P/N 102360) and white (ADC
P/N 102359).
This change effects the models AD-78, AD-115ES,
AD-120ES, and AD-170ES manufactured with the 37-1/4"
main door with mechanical glass fasteners.

AD-24, AD-27, AD-285, and AD-385 BASKET (TUMBLER) CHANGE
(BASKET [TUMBLER] RIB SCREWS REPLACED WITH POP RIVETS)
156-5
For ease of basket (tumbler) adjustment and in an effort to standardize, the hardware used to secure the ribs to the
basket (tumbler) has changed. Opposed to screws (either TORX head or Phillips head) pop rivets are now used to
secure the ribs to the basket (tumbler). This change was implemented on the AD-27, AD-285, and AD-385 as of
OCTOBER 2000 and for the model AD-24 as of DECEMBER 12, 2000.
COLD ROLLED STEEL (CRS) MAIN DOOR CHANGE
On FEBRUARY 9, 2001, the use of silicone as an adhesive or bond to
hold the glass in place on the standard production line (i.e., OPL models
AD-15 thru 75) cold rolled steel (CRS) metal main door has been
eliminated. The glass is now held in place with mechanical
fasteners. In addition, a self-adhesive gasket material is
used as a cushion between the glass and door.
As the result of this change, the main door glass
now differs (has holes in it for fasteners) and is not
interchangeable as a replacement for existing
units in the field.
ALL parts orders for this cold rolled steel
(CRS) main door will automatically be filled with
this new mechanical fastener type door.
PLASTIC MAIN DOOR CHANGE
As of DECEMBER 15, 2000, the use of silicone
used as a cushion or barrier between the glass and
the plastic main door has been eliminated. This
cushion (silicone) has been replaced by a selfadhesive gasket material, which creates a more even
seal, and overall better looking finished product.
Depending on the color of the main door, there are
two (2) gaskets available, black (ADC
P/N 102360) and white (ADC P/N 102359).
This change affects applicable models
manufactured with a plastic type main door with
mechanical glass fasteners.

AD-24 CONTROL DOOR and M.P. PANEL CHANGE
156-6
As of JANUARY 24TH, 2001, the Microprocessor coin version of the AD-24 has
a new look. The control panel area has changed where a slim design 25c Hanke
coin acceptor (ADC P/N 881163 same as used on the model AD-320/330) is now
used as opposed to the standard production Hanke (ADC P/N 882689) or Greenwald
(ADC P/N 125100) type acceptor. As the result of this change, esthetic changes
have been made to the control door where rather than having one (1) cut out for the
controls, there are now two (2) smaller one’s (see photo).
This particular change only affects coin models of the AD-24 manufactured with
a 25 cent U.S. coin acceptor. This change does not affect “slide meter” or “OPL”
version models. The control door for these models has not changed.
However, the control door mounting arrangement for ALL of the above has
changed from a top piano type arrangement to a screw pivot arrangement at the top
corner of each control door. This new design control door is not interchangeable
with the older type door.
REPLACEMENT COIN BOX LOCK KEYS
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the lead-time and pricing of Chicago (ACE type) lock replacement keys
has changed. Our vendor (Chicago Lock Co.) for many years was recently purchased by another lock group. As the
result of this change, their lead-times and minimum order requirements have changed drastically.
For parts orders placed for specifically keyed keys, the pricing has not changed. However, due to the increased
minimum requirement, orders must be held and consolidated until minimum vendor requirements are met. As the
result, we have no control over the lead-time and it might be as long as a minimum of 5 weeks and as much as 16 (or
more) weeks. In addition, orders will not be accepted for no less than two (2) per keyed code and orders received for
one (1) key (key code) will automatically be processed and charged for two (2).
If the situation is urgent and rather than have the order held up or wait for consolidation until minimum vendor
requirement is met, the customer has the option to purchase a minimum lock key requirement surcharge. This
surcharge is $115.00 NET (no discount) and the lead-time will be reduced to approximately 6 or 7 weeks. This
surcharge is in addition to the retail price of the keys (minimum of two [2]) and only guarantees that the order will be
placed with our vendor immediately and not held until ADC receives enough orders to meet vendors minimum requirements.
The following CHICAGO LOCK CO. (ACE type) lock keys are affected by this vendor change.

UPDATED - JANUARY 1, 2001 - ADC PUBLICATIONS CD-ROM (P/N 882206)
156-7
ADC has its newest CD-ROM available dated JANUARY 2, 2001, which includes our most current installation,
parts, service, and user’s manuals. The CD-ROM (P/N 882206) can be ordered as a regular parts order at a price of $9
NET each.
Due to the ever-changing nature of computer file formats, the manuals on this CD-ROM are the ONLY ones
available in an electronic format. Other manuals not included on this CD may be available directly from ADC in hard
copy form at the prevailing cost shown in our Parts Price List. Changes made to the CD-ROM will be listed in future
Technical Bulletins. No CD-ROM updates will be available through ADC’s website. Only manuals regularly posted on
the website will be updated there.
Our Publications CD will be updated and made available quarterly to include changes, updates, and new manuals,
as they are made available. Our next CD release will be the week of April 2001.
