11
D. FRESH AIR SUPPLY 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.
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to ensure proper performance of each dryer. An unrestricted
source of air is necessary for each dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors (atmosphere)
of a minimum of 2.7 square feet (0.25 square meters) is required for each dryer. (Based on 1 square inch per 1,000 Btu.)
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 six (6) dryers, two (2) unrestricted openings measuring 3 feet by 3 feet (0.91 meters by 0.91
meters) are 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.

American Dryer Corp.
113409 - 2
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 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: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN CREATE A
POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: When a dryer is exhausted separately, it is recommended that a back draft damper be installed.
NOTE: When dryers are exhausted into a multiple (common) exhaust line, each dryer must be supplied with a
back draft damper.
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.
When single dryer venting is used, the ductwork from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet should not exceed 15
feet (4.57 meters). In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance from the last dryer to the outside
exhaust outlet should not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters). The shape of the ductwork is not critical as 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/angles instead. The radius of the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter of the duct.
Excluding tumbler/dryer elbow connections or elbows used for outside protection from the weather, no more than
three (3) elbows should be used in the exhaust duct run. If more than three (3) elbows are used, the crosssectional area of the ductwork must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows used.
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: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less than 0
and must not exceed 0.6 inches (1.48 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.
113409 - 2
www.amdry.com
13
NOTE: As per the National Fuel Gas Code, “Exhaust ducts for Type 2 clothes dryers shall be constructed of
sheet metal or other noncombustible material. Such ducts shall be equivalent in strength and corrosion
resistance to ducts made of galvanized sheet steel not less than 26 gauge (0.0195-inches [0.5 mm])
thick.”
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that exhaust or booster fans not be used in the exhaust ductwork system.
Outside Ductwork Protection
To protect the outside end of 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 as long as the minimum cross section area is provided.
IMPORTANT: The minimum duct size for a gas unit is 12-inches (30.48 cm) for a round duct and
12-inches x 10-inches (30.48 cm x 25.4 cm) for a square duct. THE DUCT SIZE MUST
NOT BE REDUCED ANYWHERE DOWNSTREAM OF THE DRYER.
14
American Dryer Corp.
113409 - 2
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each tumbler exhaust duct area must be
no less than 0 and must not exceed 0.6 inches (1.48 mb) of water column (W.C.).
It is suggested that the ductwork from each dryer not exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters) with no more than three (3)
elbows (excluding dryer connections). If the ductwork exceeds 15 feet (4.57 meters) or has numerous elbows, the
cross-sectional area of the ductwork must be increased in proportion to the length and number of elbows in it. In
calculating duct size, the cross-sectional area of a square or rectangular duct must be increased twenty percent
(20%) for each additional 15 feet (4.57 meters). The diameter of a round exhaust duct should be increased ten
percent (10%) for each additional 10 feet (3.04 meters). Each 90º elbow is equivalent to an additional 40 feet
(12.19 meters), and each 45º elbow is equivalent to an additional 20 feet (6.09 meters).
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the ductwork can only be increased to
an extent. Maximum proportional ductwork runs cannot exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters) more
than the original limitations of 15 feet (4.57 meters) with three (3) elbows. When the
ductwork approaches the maximum limits as noted in this manual, a professional heating,
ventilating, 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.
113409 - 2
www.amdry.com
15
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.
Outside Ductwork Protection
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.
3. 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 45° in the direction of the flow and should be spaced at least 55-3/4” (141.61 cm) apart. The main duct
should be tapered, with the diameter increasing before each individual 18-inch (45.72 cm) duct is added.
IMPORTANT: The dryer is not provided with a back draft damper. When exhausted into a multiple
(common) exhaust line, a back draft damper must be installed at each dryer duct.
IMPORTANT: No more than three (3) dryers should be connected to one (1) main common duct.
The main duct may be any shape or cross-sectional area, as long as the minimum cross section area is provided.
The illustration on page 18 shows the minimum cross section area for multiple dryer round or square venting.
These figures must be increased 10 square inches (64.52 square centimeters) when rectangular main ducting is
used, and the ratio of duct width to depth should not be greater than 3-1/2 to 1. These figures must be increased
in proportion if the main duct run to the last dryer to where it exhausts to the outdoors is unusually long (over 15 feet
[4.57 meters]) or has numerous elbows (more than three [3]) in it. In calculating ductwork size, the cross-sectional
area of a square or rectangular duct must be increased twenty percent (20%) for each additional 20 feet (6.09
meters). The diameter of a round exhaust must be increased ten percent (10%) for each additional 20 feet (6.09
meters). Each 90° elbow is equivalent to an additional 40 feet (12.19 meters) and each 45° elbow is equivalent to
an additional 20 feet (6.09 meters).
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs, the cross section area of the ductwork can only be increased to
an extent. Maximum proportional ductwork runs cannot exceed 15 feet (4.57 meters) more
than the original limitations of 15 feet (4.57 meters) with three (3) elbows. When the
ductwork approaches the maximum limits as noted in this manual, a professional heating,
ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted for proper venting
information.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must be no less than 0
and must not exceed 0.6 inches (1.48 mb) of water column (W.C.).

The 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 duct.
Outside Ductwork Protection
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 exhaust 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.

H. WATER INFORMATION
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.
IMPORTANT: 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.
INSTALLATION
1. 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.
If the rear area of the dryer or the water supply is located in an area where it will be exposed to cold/freezing
temperatures, provisions must be made to protect these water lines from freezing.
WARNING: If the water in the supply line or water solenoid valve freezes, the fire suppression system will be
INOPERATIVE!!
2. Water Connections
The water connection is made to the 3/4”-11.5 NH hose adaptor, which is shipped in the tumbler and must be
installed to the 1/2” N.P.T. water connection, located at the upper 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 two (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.
IMPORTANT: The dryer is to be connected to the water mains using a new hose set and the old hose set
should not be reused.
113409 - 2
www.amdry.com
25
OPTIONAL MANUAL BYPASS
Provisions are made in the dryer’s fire suppression system for the installation of an optional manual bypass. The
connections for the manual bypass are made at the “tee” 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 connection of this manual bypass is at the option or discretion of the
owner.
The water connection for the manual bypass is made to the “tee” or “three way” fitting, which has a 3/8” F.N.P.T. and
a coupling must be used to provide the minimum 1/2-inch (12.7 mm) supply (feed) line.
3. 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 in the dryer (from the dryer controls).
WARNING: Electrical power must be provided to the dryer at ALL times. If the main electrical power
supply to the dryer is disconnected, the fire suppression system is INOPERATIVE!!
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. In the case of 208
VAC or 240 VAC THE SUPPLY VOLTAGE MUST MATCH THE ELECTRIC SERVICE EXACTLY.
3. GAS MODELS – check to ensure 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 pre-adjusted at the factory
prior to shipping. However, each sail switch adjustment must be checked to ensure that this important safety
control is functioning.
5. Check to be sure that the drive belts between the idler pulley and the motor pulley have been reconnected.
NOTE: The drive belts were disconnected at the factory prior to dryer shipment.
6. GAS MODELS – be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.
7. Be sure ALL back panels (guards) and electric box covers have been replaced.
8. Check ALL service doors to ensure that they are closed and secured in place.
9. Be sure the lint drawer is securely in place.
NOTE: LINT DRAWER MUST BE ALL THE WAY IN PLACE TO ACTIVATE THE SAFETY
SWITCH OTHERWISE THE DRYER WILL NOT START.
10. Rotate the tumbler (drum) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
26
American Dryer Corp.
113409 - 2
11. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.
12. Check to ensure air supply (80 psi [5.51 bar]) is connected to the dryer.
13. Check tumbler bearing setscrews to ensure they are ALL tight.
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. Make sure the main door is closed and the lint drawer is securely in place.
3. Refer to the Operating Instructions for starting your particular model dryer.
4. Check to ensure that the tumbler starts in the clockwise (CW) direction. Additionally, check the direction of the
blower motor impellor (fan) to ensure that the impellor (fan) rotates in the clockwise (CW) direction as viewed
from the front. If it is, the phasing is correct. If the phasing is incorrect, reverse two (2) of the leads at L1, L2, or
L3 of the power supply connections made to the dryer.
IMPORTANT: The dryer blower motor/pulley that drives the impellor/fan (squirrel cage) when viewed from
the back of the dryer must turn in the counterclockwise (CCW) direction, otherwise the dryer
efficiency will be drastically reduced and premature component failure can result.
5. Heat Circuit Operational Test
a. Gas Models
1) When the dryer is first started (during initial start-up), the burner has a tendency not to ignite on the first
attempt. This is because the gas supply piping is filled with air, so it may take a few minutes for this air to
be purged from the lines.
2) The dryer is equipped with a Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) system, which has internal diagnostics. If ignition
is not established after three (3) attempts, the heat circuit DSI module will LOCKOUT until it is manually
reset. To reset the DSI system, open and close the main door and restart the dryer (press the “START”
key).
NOTE: During the purging period, check to be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are open.
3) Once ignition is established, a gas pressure test should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer
to ensure that the water column (W.C.) pressure is correct and consistent.
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at the gas valve pressure tap)...
Natural Gas --------------------- 3.5 Inches (8.7 mb) Water Column.
Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas ---- 10.5 Inches (26.1 mb) Water Column.
113409 - 2
www.amdry.com
27
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.
6. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., lint drawer switch and sail switch on gas
models).
NOTE: To check for proper sail switch operation, open the main door and while holding main door switch
plunger in, start the dryer. The dryer should start but the heat circuit should not be activated (on). If
the heat (burner) does activate, shut the dryer off and make the necessary adjustments.
7. Reversing tumbler dryers should never be operated with less than a 112 lb (51 kg) load (dry weight), since the
load’s weight affects tumbler coast time during a direction reversal command. It is important that the tumbler come
to a complete stop prior to starting in opposite direction.
a. Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Dryer Models
1) 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 the forward direction and 120-seconds
in the reverse direction with a 5-second dwell (stop) time.
2) Spin and dwell (stop) times are adjustable in the Manual (timed) Mode.
TUMBLER COATING
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.
8. Each dryer should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to ensure that no further adjustments are necessary
and that ALL components are functioning properly.
9. Make a complete operational check of ALL operating controls.
a. Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Programs/Selections
1) Each microprocessor controller (computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the most commonly
used parameter (program) selections. If computer changes are required, refer to the computer programming
manual, which was shipped with the dryer.
K. PREOPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT: For more detailed information regarding the microprocessor controller (computer), refer to the
microprocessor user’s manual included with the dryer.
1. Microprocessor Controller (Computer)
The light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display reads “READY” (no cycle in progress).

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: The dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint buildup.
CLEAN LINT FROM LINT DRAWER/SCREEN EVERY THIRD OR FOURTH LOAD.
NOTE: The frequency of cleaning the lint screens can best be determined from experience at each location.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from the lint chamber, thermostat, and microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor bracket)
area.
WARNING: TO AVOID HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE ELECTRICAL
POWER SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.
90 DAYS
Remove lint from around tumbler, motors, and surrounding areas. Remove lint from the gas valve burner area with a
dusting brush or vacuum cleaner attachment.
Impellor (fan/blower) shaft bearings should be lubricated using Shell Alvania grease NLGI 2 or its equivalent. Generically,
this grease would be described as an NLGI grade 2 multipurpose industrial grease with a lithium thickener and mineral
base oil.
Check to make sure that the setscrews on the impellor/fan shaft bearings are tight.
NOTE: To prevent damage, avoid cleaning and/or touching the Direct Spark Ignitor.

6 MONTHS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system and from dryer’s internal exhaust
ducting.
NOTE: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN CREATE A
POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR. CHECK
CUSTOMER FURNISHED BACK DRAFT DAMPERS IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK.
INSPECT AND REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE THE
DAMPER TO BIND OR STICK.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shut down of the 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.
Check ALL V-belts for tightness and wear. Retighten, realign, or replace if required.
NOTE: V-belts should be replaced in matched sets (pairs).
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). Fan (impellor) V-belts, along with the motor and drive belts should be examined and
replaced if necessary. Tighten loose V-belts when necessary. Complete an operational check of controls and valves.
Complete an operational check of ALL safety devices (i.e., door switches, lint drawer switch, sail switch, and hi-limit
thermostats).
NOTE: Squirrel cage type fan (impellor) on the blower motor must be inspected and cleaned every 6 months.
C. LUBRICATION
The fan shaft bearings and ALL the tumbler drive shaft and idler shaft bearings must be lubricated every 3 months. Use
a #2 grease or its equivalent (Magnalube-G Teflon® grease with an operating range of -40º F to 530º F). Lubrication is
necessary or premature bearing failure will be the result.
The motor bearings are permanently lubricated and DO NOT require to be serviced.

SECTION VII
MANUAL RESET BURNER HI-LIMIT INSTRUCTIONS
A. 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.
B. DUAL 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.
The location of the burner hi-limit is on the right side of the burner box, looking at the burner from the back of the dryer.
WARNING: Discontinue power to dryer before attempting to reset hi-limit.

2. For Models with Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) Module (Type I)
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 30-seconds) the DSI module
will “LOCKOUT” (light emitting diode [L.E.D.] diagnostic indicator
flashes).
A steady L.E.D. indicator indicates normal operation.
No L.E.D. indicator indicates a power or an internal failure has occurred.
3. 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 “LOCK OUT” if the gas burner
flame is not sensed at the end of the trial for ignition period. The trial for
ignition period will be repeated for a total of three (3) retries/trials (the
initial try and two [2] more retries/trials). If the flame is not sensed at the
end of the third retry/trial (inter-purge period of 30-seconds), the DSI
module will “LOCK OUT” (a red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator will flash).
An unlit red L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates normal operation.
A lit green L.E.D. diagnostic indicator indicates dryer controller is calling for heat and that ALL interlocks have
been satisfied.
