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 basket (tumbler) section of the dryer must be transported and handled in an
upright position at ALL times.

A. REASSEMBLY OF DRYER
IMPORTANT: Always keep the basket (tumbler) section of the dryer in an upright position when
moving it.
The dryer may be shipped one (1) of two (2) ways: as a complete unit fully assembled and ready for hookup or
with the basket (tumbler) section separated from the base. If the dryer is shipped in two (2) pieces, the basket
(tumbler) section will have to be lifted onto the base. Use cables through the eyebolts on top of the basket
(tumbler) section, or use a forklift for the lifting process.
8
1. Reassembly Instructions For Gas Dryer Shipped In Two (2) Pieces
9
a. Reassembly Instructions For Non-Tilt Gas Dryers:
Lift the basket (tumbler) section onto the base.
1) The dryer has four (4) support posts assemblies which are located in each corner of the base. On
top of each post assembly is a clevis block which must be bolted to the basket (tumbler) section.
Use the four (4) 1/2” diameter x 1-1/8” long bolts and lock washers to bolt each clevis block to the
basket (tumbler) section. (Refer to View 1 on the previous page.)
2) Basket (tumbler) power cable reconnection:
a) A plug and cable is located in the right of the base. This must be lifted up and reconnected into
the mating socket located at the bottom of the right basket (tumbler) section.
b) Pull the basket (tumbler) section power cable up from the left side of the base through the hole
in the bottom of the basket (tumbler) section. Reconnect the wires of this cable into the 2-inches
x 4-inches (5.08 cm x 10.16 cm) basket (tumbler) junction box located at the bottom of the
basket (tumbler) section. (Refer to the illustration on the previous page.)
c) Drop the control cable connector from the rear right side of the basket (tumbler) section into the
base. Reconnect the industrial grade plug in to its mating socket.
3) Bolt the 24-inch (60.96 cm) diameter exhaust duct transition piece to the dryer’s rectangular exhaust
duct. The exhaust duct exits the dryer from the rear of the base. (Refer to the illustration on the
previous page.) Use the 1/4-20 self drilling screws supplied with the dryer.
10
B. LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
The non-tilting model dryer requires 18-inches (45.72 cm) of space on each side of the dryer and 24-inches
(60.96 cm) of space behind the unit for ease of service. A minimum of 12-inches (30.48 cm) must be allowed
between the top of a gas dryer and the ceiling. A ceiling height of 120-inches (304.8 cm) is required for gas
dryers. The dryer must be leveled for proper operation. If shimming is required, put metal shims which are the
same size as the base feet under the base feet. The dryer must be lagged to the floor.
WARNING: Dryer should be located where a minimum length of exhaust duct will be necessary.
11
C. 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 6,500 cfm (cubic feet per minute) 184.1
cmm (cubic meters per minute) must be supplied to each gas dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air
entrance from the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 6 square feet (0.56 square meters) is required for each
gas dryer.
To compensate for the use of registers or louvers used over the openings, this make-up air area 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.
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.
12
D. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
NOTE: For 1 door dryers, the 24-inch (60.96 cm) diameter exhaust duct exits from the rear of the
base. For 2 door dryers, the 24-inch (60.96 cm) diameter exhaust duct exits from the left side
of the base.
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-limit
thermostats.
CAUTION: DRYER MUST BE EXHAUSTED TO THE OUTDOORS.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED or INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: THE DRYER MUST BE INDEPENDENTLY EXHAUSTED. COMMON
DUCTWORK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
The exhaust 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.
The shape of the ductwork is not critical so long as the minimum cross section area is provided. It is
suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º and/or 45º angles instead. The radius of
the elbow 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 ducts to be added should overlap the duct to which it is
connected. ALL ductwork joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building.
Additionally, inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust ductwork for periodic
inspection and cleaning of lint from the ductwork.
13
The internal dimensions of the dryer’s rectangular exhaust vent ductwork is 8-1/2” x 21-inches
(20.6 cm x 53.5 cm). A transition piece to 24-inches (60.96 cm) in diameter round is supplied. The
location’s exhaust duct must be at least 24-inches (60.96 cm) in diameter or, for a rectangular duct, have a
cross-sectional area of 452 square inches (2,916 square centimeters). With the minimum size requirement
(24-inch [60.96 cm] round duct or 452 square inch [2,916 square centimeters] square duct) the ductwork
from the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet for a horizontal run with no more than one (1) elbow must not
exceed 43 feet (13.1 meters) refer to the illustration below. For locations with more than one (1) elbow,
the minimum exhaust size must be 28-inches (71.12 cm). For a 28-inch (71.12 cm) round duct (615 square
inch [3,967 square centimeters] duct) the horizontal or vertical duct total run must not exceed 50 feet
(15.24 meters) which includes the use of no more than three (3) elbows (refer to the illustration on page
15 and page 16). Should more than the maximum number of elbows be used or if the run exceeds the
maximum limits noted, a professional heating, venting, and air conditioning (HVAC) firm should be consulted
for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT: For extended ductwork runs or where more than the specified number of elbows are
used, a professional HVAC firm should be contacted for proper venting information.
NOTE: For extended ductwork runs the cross-sectional area of a duct can only be increased to
an extent. In some cases the addition of a booster fan in the ductwork may be necessary.
14
15
16
a. Outside Ductwork Protection
1) To protect the outside end of horizontal ductwork from the weather, a 90º 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 180º turn to point the
opening downward. In either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct
opening and nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens, louvers, or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust
ductwork.
NOTE: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area must
not exceed 0.3 inches (0.74 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.
17
E. COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY SYSTEM
A clean, dry, and regulated air supply of 80 PSI (552 kPa) compressed air must be supplied to the dryer. The
connection size is 1/8-inch N.P.T. No air filtering or pressure regulating devices are provided with the standard
non-tilt dryer. A filter/regulator/gauge (F/R/G) assembly is provided on dryers with the optional automatic loading
doors or the optional sprinkler system.
1. Compressed Air Supply Connection Location For Non-Tilt Dryers Built Without A Sprinkler System or
Without Automatic Loading Doors
a. Gas Dryers
The air line supply connection is made into the 1/8-inch N.P.T. port on the air jet solenoid valve, which is
located in the base of the dryer. (Refer to the illustration below.)
2. Optional Compressed Air Components
A F/R/G assembly is supplied with the dryer only if the dryer was built with either the optional sprinkler
system or with the optional automatic loading doors.
18
a. Filter/Regulator/Gauge (F/R/G) Assembly
The compressed air supply to the dryer is connected into the 3/8” F.P.T. fitting of the F/R/G assembly,
which is located at the bottom rear of the right side of the base.
The F/R/G assembly performs three (3) essential functions. The filter removes most solids and liquid
particles from the compressed air stream and traps them in its bowl where this waste can be readily
removed through the drain valve at the bottom of the bowl.
The filter bowl should be cleaned monthly.
The regulator will maintain a nearly constant outlet air pressure so that the dryer’s air pistons will
function normally despite upstream air pressure variations. After the compressed air is connected into
the F/R/G assembly, adjust the regulator knob so that the gauge needle reads 80 PSI (552 kPa).
b. Optional Automatic (Piston Operated) Load/Unload Doors
If the dryer is equipped with the automatic door option then the loading doors are operated by two (2)
pneumatic pistons located above the load doors. On 2 door dryers, the unloading doors on the back of
the dryer will also be controlled by two (2) pistons, located above the unload doors.
The 24 volt solenoid valve controlling the door pistons are located on the pneumatic panel in the rear of
the dryer’s base. These solenoid valves are configured so that if power to the dryer is shut off, the door
piston’s ports are bled to the atmosphere so that the doors can be opened and closed by hand.
c. Optional Sprinkler Valve
The sprinkler water flow is controlled by a pneumatically operated water valve, which is located in the
left side of the base. This water valve is controlled by a 3-port/2-position, 24 volt double solenoid valve
that is located at the top of the dryer’s pneumatic panel. If no voltage is applied to both solenoids then
ALL three (3) ports are blocked. This means that if the sprinkler is activated and power to the dryer is
then shut off, the sprinkler will stay on, until the manual water valve is closed or until the dryer’s internal
temperature drops below the sprinkler set point temperature and the sprinkler reset button is physically
pushed.
19
F. ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
1. Electrical Requirements

water into the 1-inch F.P.T. sprinkler shutoff valve, which is located on top of the dryer on the left hand side.
I. PREOPERATIONAL TESTS
ALL dryers are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving the factory. However, a preoperational test
should be performed before the dryer is publicly used. It is possible that adjustments have changed in transit or
due to marginal location (installation) conditions.
1. Turn on electric power to the dryer.
2. Make sure the loading doors are closed and the lint drawer is closed.
3. Press in “green” power button and it will illuminate.
4. Microprocessor controller (computer) system operational test -- to start the dryer:
a. Display will read “READY.”
b. Press “D” (preprogrammed) cycle key on the keyboard (touch pad).
5. The dryer will then start (i.e., blower, basket [tumbler] and heat).
6. The light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read MANUAL DRYING CYCLE D, 00:00 MIN REMAIN.
NOTE: Press the “UP ARROW” to view the basket (tumbler) temperature at any time.
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time by pressing the “STOP/CLEAR”
key. If the
temperature is above the Cool Down set point when the “STOP/CLEAR” is pressed, the
dryer will go into a Cool Down Cycle. If the “STOP/CLEAR” key is pressed again at this
point the cycle that was in progress will be canceled and returned to the “READY” state. If
the temperature is below the Cool Down set point the cycle that was in progress will be
canceled, and go into Wrinkle Guard Cycle.
26
7. When the programmed drying time has expired, the Phase 7 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) will
proceed into the Cool Down Cycle (Mode).
8. Once the Cool Down Cycle begins at the end of the heat cycle the L.E.D. display will read COOL
DOWN TEMP ___/___MINUTE REMAINING. At the end of the heat cycle the dryer will shut off the
heat, and continue the fan and basket (tumbler) until the Cool Down time, or temperature is reached.
9. Once the Cool Down Cycle is completed the Phase 7 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) will
proceed into the Wrinkle Guard cycle. The Audio Alert tone will sound for (the amount set in Audio
Alert ON Time). The L.E.D. display will read “WRINKLE GUARD.” The times are fixed at 2
minutes OFF, 2 minutes ON for a maximum time of 99 minutes. These times are not programmable.
During the ON time, the blower (fan) and the basket (tumbler) will start to rotate (without heat for 2
minutes). The Phase 7 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) will repeat this process until the
Maximum Wrinkle Guard On Time has expired (99 minutes). The L.E.D. display will then read “CYCLE
DONE” and lockout the dryer functions until the doors are opened. It will then return to “READY.”
NOTE: Mechanical functions of the dryer are not allowed during the ON time. The blower (fan)
must be OFF to perform mechanical functions. However the “STOP/CLEAR” key may be
pressed at anytime to end the Wrinkle Guard Cycle. Mechanical functions of the dryer is
allowed during the OFF time.
NOTE: Dryer can be stopped at any time by pressing the “STOP/CLEAR” key twice. The display
will show “READY,” at this time a new keyboard (touch pad) key function must be selected
for the dryer to operate.
NOTE: Pressing keyboard (touch pad) key “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and “F” will also start the dryer. The
six (6) preprogrammed drying cycles (“A” thru “F”) have been stored in the microprocessor
controller’s (computer’s) memory. Refer to the Programming Manual supplied with the dryer
for these preprogrammed cycles.
10. Check to insure that the basket (tumbler) starts in the clockwise (CW) direction. Additionally, check the
direction of the blower motor to insure that it rotates in the counterclockwise (CCW) direction as viewed
from the left side of the dryer. If it does, 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: Dryer blower motor and impellor/fan shaft as viewed from the left side of the dryer
must turn in the counterclockwise (CCW) direction, otherwise the dryer efficiency
will be drastically reduced, and premature component failure can result.
11. Heat Circuit Operational Test
a. Gas Models
1) When the dryer is first started (during initial start-up), the burners have a tendency not to ignite on
the first attempt. This is because the gas supply piping is filled with air, so the dryer may have to be
stopped and restarted several times for this air to be purged from the lines.
2) The dryer has two (2) burner boxes and each burner has its own Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) module
and Ignitor/Flame-Probe Assembly. If ignition is not established after first attempt, the heat
circuit DSI module will lockout until it is manually reset. To reset the DSI system, open and close the
loading doors and restart the dryer (press “ENTER/START” key).
27
If one (1) burner lights and the other does not, then the system will shut both burners off and the
burner fault code will be displayed showing which of the two (2) burners failed to ignite.
NOTE: During the purging period, verify that ALL gas shutoff valves are open.
3) Once ignition is established, a gas pressure test should be taken at each gas valve pressure tap of
the dryer to assure that the water column (W.C.) pressure is correct and consistent.
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at both gas valve pressure taps)...
Natural Gas ----------- 3.5 inches (8.7 mb) water column.
4) Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., lint drawer switch and sail
switches on gas models).
5) A reversing basket (tumbler) should never be operated with less than a 100 pound (45.4 kg) load
(dry weight). The size of the load will affect the coast-down and dwell (stop) times. The basket
(tumbler) must come to a complete stop before starting in the opposite direction. For automatic
(mode) cycle only, the spin and stop times are not adjustable and have been preprogrammed into the
microprocessor controller (computer) for a 2-1/2 minute reverse spin time and a 7-second dwell
(stop) time.
BASKET 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.
6) Each dryer should be operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure that no further adjustments
are necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.
7) Microprocessor controller (computer) programs/selections...
a. Each microprocessor controller (computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the
most commonly used parameter (programs) selections. If computer program changes are
required, refer to the Computer Programming Manual, which was shipped with the dryer.
J. 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 back panel of the main electrical cabinet located in the right hand electrical enclosure. In case of 208
VAC, for dryers with sprinkler option, verify single-phase (1ø) voltage is correct. The supply voltage
must match the electrical service exactly.
3. GAS MODELS - Check to assure that the dryer is connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the
dryer data label.
28
4. GAS MODELS - The sail switch damper assembly was installed and adjusted at the factory prior to
shipping. However, each sail switch adjustment must be checked to assure that this
important safety control is functioning.
5. GAS MODELS - Be sure that ALL gas shutoff valves are in the open position.
6. Be sure ALL side and base panels are on the dryer.
7. Check ALL service doors to assure that they are closed and secure.
8. Be sure lint drawer is securely in place.
NOTE: LINT DRAWER MUST BE ALL THE WAY IN PLACE TO ACTIVATE SAFETY
SWITCH OTHERWISE THE DRYER WILL NOT START.
9. Rotate the basket (tumbler/drum) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
10. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.
11. Check to insure air supply 80 PSI (552 kPa) is connected to the dryer.
K SHUT DOWN INSTRUCTIONS
If the dryer is to be shut down (taken out of service) for a period of time, the following must be performed:
1. Discontinue power to the dryer either at the external disconnect switch or the circuit breaker.
2. Discontinue the heat supply:
a. GAS MODELS ... discontinue the gas supply.
1) SHUT OFF external gas supply shutoff valve.
2) SHUT OFF internal gas supply shutoff valve located in the gas valve burner area.

SECTION VII
COMPONENT SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS
A. BASKET (TUMBLER) DRIVE SYSTEM
The basket (tumbler) is supported and driven by four (4) 11-inch (27.94 cm) diameter drive wheels. Two (2) of
these wheels are attached to a 1-1/2” (3.81 cm) diameter idler shaft, while the other two (2) are attached to a
1-1/2” (3.81 cm) diameter drive shaft. Each of the wheels is fastened to the shafts by a taper lock bushing. The
taper lock is made up of three (3) pieces: an inner collar, an outer sleeve, and a key. The inner and outer elements
have matching opposing tapers. As a result, when the bolts are tightened, the taper lock contracts onto the shaft
and expands into the drive wheel hub locking the wheel onto the shaft.
The idler shaft and drive shaft are each supported by two (2) 1-1/2” (3.81 cm) diameter pillow block bearings.
These bearings sit on slotted support channels and can be moved inward or outward by the adjustment bolts to
raise or lower the basket (tumbler).
The drive system consists of a shaft mounted gear reducer, two (2) V-belts, and a 5 HP (3.73 kw) drive motor.
Belt tension can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the gear reducer turnbuckle.
BASKET (TUMBLER) DRIVE SYSTEM

B. BASKET (TUMBLER)
The basket (tumbler) is made of 14-gauge stainless steel perforated panels, four (4) stainless steel ribs, and two
(2) outer basket (tumbler) rings made of rolled steel angle iron that has been turned on a lathe for smoothness.
The basket (tumbler) is a completely welded assembly so the perforated panels are not removable.
C. AIR BLOWER DRIVE SYSTEM
The impellor (fan) used in the dryer is an 18-1/4” (46.35 cm) diameter squirrel cage impellor (fan) wheel. It spins
in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction looking at the back of the blower housing.
The impellor (fan) shaft is mounted in two (2) pillow block bearings, and the shaft is driven by two (2) B-section
V-belts connected to the blower motor.
The blower motor is mounted on an adjustable base. The motor position can be easily adjusted so that proper
tension can be maintained on the V-belts.
D. SAFETY DEVICES
1. Load/Unload Door Switches
There are two (2) of these switches located above the main loading doors. These switches ensure that the
doors are closed before the dryer can start and ensures that the doors are fully open before the dryer will tilt.
If the dryer is started when the load doors are open, the microprocessor controller (computer) light emitting
diode (L.E.D.) display will show “front door not closed” or “rear door not closed” for 2 door dryers.
2. Lint Basket Switch
This switch ensures that the lint basket is closed before the dryer can start. This switch is located at the
front of the dryer at the right side of the lint basket. If the lint basket is open when the dryer is started, the
microprocessor controller (computer) L.E.D. will display “Lint Drawer Open” and will not reset until the lint
drawer has been closed. For a “clean lint” prompt the lint drawer must remain open for 15-seconds.
3. Manual Reset Basket (Tumbler) Hi-Limit Safety Thermostat
The manual reset basket (tumbler) hi-limit switch is a thermostat type switch located above the lint basket.
Its function is to discontinue heat (flame) in the event of an over temperature situation (above 225° F [107°
C]). This will shut off the gas flow to the burner boxes; and the display will read an error code of “tumbler
hi-limit fault.” The manual reset hi-limit safety must be manually reset and the Phase 7 computer must be
reset. (Access to the switch is gained by sliding/pulling the lint basket completely out of the dryer.)
4. Burner Box Hi-Limit Safety Thermostats (for Gas Dryers ONLY)
These disk temperature switches have a setting of 330º F (166º C). They are located on the right side of
each burner box, and they are a manual reset type of switch. These switches ensure that there is a proper
airflow through the burner box. Upon a low airflow condition, which may be caused by a clogged lint screen
excessively long or blocked exhaust duct, or improper make-up air, the temperature in the burner boxes will
increase tripping these switches. This will shut off the gas flow to the burner boxes; and the display will
read an error code of “Burner Hi-Limit Fault.” The thermostat must be manually reset and the Phase 7
computer must be reset.
37
5. Sail Switches (for Gas Dryers Only)
The sail switches are located in the front and back of the burner boxes. A sail switch consists of a round
damper plate on a lever arm, which is in contact with an electric switch. When the air blower comes on, it
draws air through the gas burners. This creates a negative pressure inside the burner boxes. This negative
pressure pulls in the sail switches. If the sail switches DO NOT pull in, this will prevent the dryer from
operating and a sail switch fault will display.
NOTE: An overly long or blocked exhaust duct, lack of make-up air, or clogged lint screen will
prevent the sail switches from pulling in.

MANUAL RESET HI-LIMIT INSTRUCTIONS
PHASE 7
(GAS MODELS ONLY)
This dryer was manufactured with a burner manual reset hi-limit and basket (tumbler)/lint chamber hi-limit
thermostat. If either burner manual reset hi-limit thermostat is open prior to the start of the drying cycle, or during
the cycle, the dryer will recognize the open state of the burner hi-limit thermostat and display a hi-limit fault. The
manual reset hi-limit thermostat must be reset manually.
This hi-temperature condition may be caused due to a restricted exhaust, poor airflow, or improper burner
oven operation.
The location of the manual reset hi-limit switch is on the left side of the burner box and the basket (tumbler)
hi-limit is located in the lint chamber area.
WARNING: Discontinue power to the dryer before attempting to reset hi-limit.
IMPORTANT
This dryer is equipped with a burner
hi-limit and tumbler/lint chamber hi-limit
thermostat which must be reset manually.
WARNING: Discontinue power to dryer
before attempting to reset hi-limit.

SECTION X
PROCEDURE FOR FUNCTIONAL CHECK
OF REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS
1. 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 30-seconds) the DSI module will “LOCKOUT” (light emitting diode [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.
42
2. For Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) System Models Manufactured With ADC Module Part No. 880815
a. Upon completing installation of the
replacement DSI module, reestablish power
to the dryer.
b. Starting the drying cycle.
c. The ignition DSI module’s light emitting diode
(L.E.D.) indicator will light “red” for up to
approximately 1.5-seconds (prepurge time).
d. The module’s indicator light will then turn
“green.” The gas valve will be energized
and the ignitor probe will spark for
approximately 8-seconds. The burner flame
should now be established.
e. With the burner flame on, remove the flame
sensor wire from the FS terminal of the DSI
module.
f. The burner flame must shut off and the
ignition module must lockout with the DSI
module’s indicator light “red.”
g. Stop the drying cycle, with the flame sensor wire still removed, restart the drying cycle.
h. The ignition module must proceed through the prepurge, with the indicator light “red,” the ignition trial
time of approximately 8-seconds, with the indicator light “green,” and then proceed to lockout with the
indicator light “red.”
i. Functional check of the DSI module is complete.
1) Replace the flame sensor wire from the FS terminal to the DSI module.

SECTION XIII
OPTIONAL SPRINKLER SYSTEM COMPONENTS
OPTIONAL SPRINKLER CIRCUIT COMPONENTS
AUTO “EMERGENCY STOP” (E-Stop) RELAY
This device, located in the front right electrical enclosure, supplies the main control voltage to the dryer.
The dryer’s sprinkler circuit supplies or removes 120 VAC to the coil of this relay for the “EMERGENCY
STOP” (E-Stop) power disconnect control.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER
This device is located in the front left electrical enclosure and monitors the sprinkler circuit temperature. Its
operating functions are preset at the factory and should not require any adjustment.
RESISTIVE TEMPERATURE DEVICE (RTD) TEMPERATURE PROBE
This device is a high temperature 100 ohm (100 W) RTD probe and is located on the upper left side of the basket
(tumbler).
PNEUMATIC VALVE
This is a dual pneumatic 110 VAC control valve and is located in the lower rear base section of the dryer. Power
to turn “ON” the pneumatic valve is supplied from the sprinkler control circuit. Power to turn “OFF” the sprinkler
is supplied from a manual reset button located on the right front control door.
SPRINKLER VALVE
This valve controls the flow of the sprinkler water. It is air actuated and requires air pressure to turn “ON” or
“OFF.”
NOTE THAT THERE IS A “RED” INDICATING PISTON AT THE REAR OF THIS SPRINKLER VALVE.
The piston indicates the current state of the valve; when the piston is “IN” the valve is “CLOSED,” when the
piston is “OUT” the valve is “OPEN.”
ALARM HORN
This component is an audible device to indicate that the sprinkler system has tripped and that water is flowing into
the basket (tumbler). The alarm horn will reset when the sprinkler system is reset.
SPRINKLER RESET BUTTON
This amber colored push button is located on the right hand control door and illuminates when the sprinkler system
is activated. Attempting to reset the sprinkler system with this button can be tried, however, if the sprinkler circuit
continues to be in the active mode the reset function will not latch.
58
SPRINKLER AND MAIN POWER CONNECTIONS
There are two (2) individual power connections to the dryer that includes the sprinkler system option.
1. Main dryer power (3-phase [3ø]).
2. Dedicated sprinkler system circuit power (single-phase [1ø]).
Both of these connections are at the voltage rating of the dryer and can be installed in the front right base
electrical enclosure. The larger connection is for main electrical power and the smaller connections, located
to the right of the larger connection is for the dedicated sprinkler system circuit power.
Refer to the dryer nameplate for voltage rating information.
SPRINKLER THEORY OF OPERATION
1. Power sprinkler system circuit.
2. “TURN TO RELEASE” ALL “EMERGENCY STOP” (E-Stop) buttons.
3. Run dryer.
If the temperature of the basket (tumbler) should rise above the sprinkler controller’s preset value the
sprinkler system will activate and the following will occur:
• An “AUTOMATIC ‘EMERGENCY STOP’” (E-Stop) will stop the dryer.
• The alarm horn will sound.
• The amber sprinkler system reset button will light.
• The sprinkler system will spray water into the basket (tumbler).
• The water will flow and the alarm horn will sound until;
The temperature of the basket (tumbler) falls below sprinkler controller’s preset value and the sprinkler
system reset button is pressed.
NOTE: THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY RESET.
