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.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
Installation should be performed by competent technicians in accordance with local and state codes. In the
absence of these codes, the installation must conform to applicable American National Standards: ANSI Z223.1LATEST EDITION (National Fuel Gas Code) or ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST EDITION (National Electrical
Code) or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable Canadian Standards: CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91
(Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (liquid propane [L.P.] Gas) or LATEST EDITION (for General
Installation and Gas Plumbing) or Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST
EDITION (for Electrical Connections).
A. REASSEMBLY OF DRYER
IMPORTANT: Always keep the tumbler (basket) section of the dryer in an upright position
when moving it.
The AD-200 (gas model dryer) may be shipped
one of two ways; as a complete unit fully
assembled and ready for hookup or in two (2)
pieces with the middle frame separated from
the base. At installation, the middle frame will
be lifted onto the base. Use cables through the
eye bolts on top of the middle frame for lifting.
Fasten the middle frame to the base by using
the four (4) #3/8-16 bolts provided with the unit.
Also, reconnect the V-belts, belt guard at the
rear end of the unit, and reconnect the
electrical plugs located in the front control
boxes.
The ADS-200 (steam models) can also be
shipped with the middle frame separated from
the base. In this case, follow the instructions
for reassembly of the gas dryer. The steam
dryer may also be shipped with the steam coil
and damper piston removed. If this is the case,
lift the steam coil on top of the middle frame,
with the steam connection pipes facing the right
side of the unit, and bolt the coil to the top of the
middle frame using the #3/8-16 bolts provided.
Also, bolt the damper piston and solenoid valve
to the top of the middle frame using the bolts
provided. There are three (3) panels that cover
the front, right side, and rear of the steam coil.
Fasten these in position.

1. Reconnect the four (4) pin/socket connectors at the bottom of the right control box.
2. Reconnect the three (3) pin/socket connectors at the bottom of the left control box.
3. Reconnect the two (2) pin/socket connectors within the left control box.
4. Rewire the drive motor by inserting the three (3) black wires into the T1, T2, and T3 connections of the
telemecanique drive contactor.
5. Rewire the blower (impellor/fan) motor by inserting the three (3) blue wires into the T1, T2, and T3
connections of the telemecanique blower contactor.
10
11
B. LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
The model AD-200 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 maintenance. A minium 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, and a ceiling height of 130-inches (330.2 cm) is required for a steam dryers. The dryer must be
leveled for proper operation. If shimming is required, ceiling put metal shims which are the same size as the base
feet. The dryer must be lagged to the floor.
IMPORTANT: Dryer should be located where a minimum amount of exhaust duct will be necessary.
12
C. FRESH AIR SUPPLY
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it, passes the air through the tumbler (basket), 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 5,300 cfm (cubic feet per minute) - (150.07
cmm [cubic meters per minute]) - must be supplied to each gas dryer and 6,500 cfm (cubic feet per minute) (184.05 cmm [cubic meters per minute]) - must be supplied to each steam dryer. As a general rule, an unrestricted air entrance from the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 5 square feet (1.524 meters) for each gas
dryer and a minimum of 6 square feet (1.828 meters) is required for a steam 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 (33) percent. 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 openings for each dryer. Common make-up air is distributed
equally to ALL dryers. However, they must be set up in such a manner that the make-up air is distributed
equally to ALL the dryers.
IMPORTANT:
Make-up air openings should not be located near duct work exhaust outlets.
If the make-up air openings is too close to the exhaust outlet, lint and fumes may
be drawn into the dryer area through these openings.
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 fumes.
Make-up air that is contaminated by dry cleaning solvent fumes will result in
irreparable damage to motors and other components.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.
13
D. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
1. General Exhaust Duct Work Information
Exhaust duct work should be designed and installed by a qualified professional. Improperly sized duct
work will create excessive back pressure which results in slow drying, increased use of energy, over
heating of the dryer, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches, burner hi-limits, or tumbler
(basket) hi-heat thermostats.
CAUTION: DRYER MUST BE EXHAUSTED TO THE OUTDOORS.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: When a dryer is exhausted separately, it is recommended that a back draft damper be installed.
NOTE: THE AD-200 MUST BE INDEPENDENTLY EXHAUSTED. COMMON DUCT
WORK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
The duct work should be laid out in such a way that the duct work travels as directly as possible to the
outdoors with as few turns as possible. Single or independent dryer venting is recommended.
The internal dimensions of the dryer’s rectangular exhaust vent duct work is 8-inches (20.32 cm) by
20-inches (50.8 cm). The plant’s exhaust duct must be at least 20-inches (50.8 cm) in diameter or for a
rectangular duct have a cross-sectional area of 315 square inches (2,032 sq. cm). The duct work from the
dryer to the outside exhaust outlet must not exceed 30 feet (9.14 meters). The shape of the duct work is
not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns
in ducting be avoided; use 45º angles instead. The radius of the elbows should preferably be 1-1/2 times the
width or diameter of the duct. Excluding basket/dryer elbow connections or elbows used for outside
protection from the weather, no more than two (2) elbows are used, the cross section area of the duct work
must be increased.
ALL duct work 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 duct work 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 duct work for periodic inspection and clean-out of lint from the duct work.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer in the exhaust duct must not
exceed 0.3 inches of water column (0.74 mb).
NOTE: Where the exhaust duct work 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.
14
a. Outside Duct Work Protection
1) To protect the outside end of horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90° elbow bent downward
should be installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the duct work 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 or caps on the outside of opening of exhaust duct work.
15
E. COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY SYSTEM
A clean, dry, regulated air supply of 80 psi (5.51 bars) 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
AD-200 Non-Tilt dryer.
1. 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. Steam Dryers
The air line supply connection is made into the 1/8-inch N.P.T. tee which is located at the left hand side
of the top of the dryer. (Refer to the illustration below.)
16
F. ELECTRICAL INFORMATION
1. Electrical Requirements
It is your responsibility to have ALL electrical connections made by a properly licensed and competent
electrician to assure that the electrical installation is adequate and conforms with local and state regulations
or codes. In the absence of such codes, ALL electrical connections, material, and workmanship must
conform to the applicable requirements of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST
EDITION or in Canada, the Canadian Installation Codes CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/
CGA-B149.2-M91 (liquid propane [L.P.] Gas) or LATEST EDITION.
IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with these codes or ordinances, and/or the requirements
stipulated in this manual can result in personal injury or component failure.
NOTE: Component failure due to improper installation will VOID THE WARRANTY.
Each dryer should be connected to an independently protected branch circuit. The dryer must be
connected with copper wire only. DO NOT use aluminum wire which could cause a fire hazard. The
copper conductor wire/cable must be of proper ampacity and insulation in accordance with electric codes
for making ALL service connects.
NOTE: The use of aluminum wire will VOID THE WARRANTY.

3. Piping/Connections
ALL components/materials must conform to National Fuel Gas Code Specifications ANSI Z223.1LATEST EDITION, or in Canada, CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P.
Gas) or LATEST EDITION (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing), as well as local codes and
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 1-1/4 inch F.P.T. inlet pipe connections extending out of the top of the burner
boxes. The minimum pipe size (supply line) to the dryer is 1-1/2”N.P.T. For ease of servicing, the gas supply
line to each dryer must have its own shut off 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 liquid propane (L.P.) gas, the supply tank, other gas-operated appliances on the same
supply 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.
Consistent gas pressure is essential at ALL gas connections. It is recommended that a 1-1/4 inch pipe gas
loop be installed in the gas supply line serving a bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator must be
installed in the supply line (header) if the (natural) gas pressure exceeds 12.0 inches of water column
(29.9 mb) pressure.
IMPORTANT: A water column pressure of 3.5 inches (8.7 mb) for natural gas and 10.5 inches
(26.1 mb) for L.P. dryers is required at the gas valve pressure tap of each
dryer for proper and safe operation.
A 1/8-inch 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 and L.P. gases must be used.
IMPORTANT: Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid
detergent works well).
WARNING: NEVER TEST FOR GAS LEAKS WITH A FLAME!!!
IMPORTANT: The dryer and it’s individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
NOTE: The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing it’s individual manual
shut-off valve during any pressure testing of gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

H. STEAM INFORMATION
It is your responsibility to have ALL steam plumbing connections made by a qualified professional to assure that
the installation is adequate and conforms with local and state regulations or codes.
IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with the requirements stipulated in this manual can result in
component failure which will VOID THE WARRANTY.
NOTE: The ADS-200 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]). See Steam Damper Air
System Connections Section H, item 3.
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
t o 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 that an adequate supply of steam is provided, be sure that the steam supply and steam return lines
are sized and laid out as stipulated in this manual. Inadequate steam supply and steam return lines or
improper steam plumbing will result in poor performance and can cause component failure. Clean, dry,
regulated steam must be provided to the dryer.
IMPORTANT: Steam coil failure due to water hammer by wet steam will VOID THE WARRANTY.
a. The presence 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 within
a minimum 10-inch (25.4 cm) riser. This will prevent any condensate from draining towards the dryer.
25
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. Shut-off valves for each dryer should be installed in the supply, return, and drip trap return lines. This will
allow the dryer to be isolated from the supply and return mains if the dryer needs maintenance work.
e. Install an inverted bucket steam trap and check valve for each unit at least 12-inches (30.48 cm) below
steam coil as close to the coil as possible.
f. A vacuum breaker should be installed in the piping. This will prevent the condensing steam from
causing a vacuum inside the coil and possibly damaging the coil.
g. The supply and return lines should be insulated. This will save energy and provide for safety of the
operator and maintenance personnel.
h. Water pockets in the supply line, caused by low points, will provide wet steam to the coil possibly
causing 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 any condensate in the line
to drain to the header. Install a bypass trap in any low point to eliminate wet steam.
26
4. STEAM DAMPER AIR SYSTEM CONNECTIONS
The ADS-200 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
on the outer top, at the rear left hand corner of the dryer.
a. Air Requirements

Shaded areas are stated in metric equivalents
b. Air Connection
Air connection to system --- 1/8-inch F.P.T.
c. No air regulation is provided with the dryer. External regulation 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 ADS-200 steam damper, as shown in Diagram 1 on page 28, 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 tumbler (basket), allowing a rapid cool down.
27
Diagram 1 shows the damper in the heating (open) mode, allowing heat into the tumbler (basket).
Diagram 2 shows the damper in the cool down (closed) mode, pulling ambient air directly into the
tumbler (basket) without passing through the coils.
NOTE: With the dryer off or with no air supply, the damper is in the cool down mode as shown in
Diagram 2.
6. STEAM DAMPER AIR PISTON (Flow Control) OPERATION ADJUSTMENT
Steam damper operation was tested and adjusted prior to shipping at 80 psi (5.51 bars). If steam damper
adjustment is necessary, locate the flow control valve and make the necessary adjustments as noted below.
28
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
behind the right control box door. In case of 208 VAC or 230 VAC for dryers with sprinkler option verify
1-phase (1ø) voltage is correct, the supply voltage must match the electric 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.
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. Check to be sure drive belts between idler pulley and motor pulley have been reconnected.
NOTE: The drive belts were disconnected at factory prior to shipment.
6. GAS MODELS - be sure that ALL gas shut-off valves are in the open position.
7. Be sure ALL side and base panels are on the dryer.
8. Check ALL service doors to assure that they are closed and secure.
9. 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.
10. Rotate the tumbler (basket) by hand to be sure it moves freely.
11. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.
12. Check to insure air supply (80 psi [5.51 bars]) is connected to the dryer.
13. STEAM MODELS - check to insure ALL steam shut-off valves are open.
29
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 loading doors are closed and the lint drawer is closed.
3. Microprocessor controller (computer) system operational test -- to start the dryer;
a. Display will read “FILL.”
b. Press “E” (preprogrammed) cycle key on the keyboard (touch pad).
c. Display will quickly read...“Ld30,” “Lc04,” and “F180” (unless special programs requested). These
codes mean that the dryer is in the timed mode and will operate with heat of 180º F (Fahrenheit) for 30
minutes drying time and have a 4 minute cool down period.
d. Dryer will now start, and the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read “Dr30”(dry mode for 30
minutes) and count downwards in minutes.
NOTE: Dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door or by pressing the “CLEAR/STOP”
key. To restart the dryer, press the “ENTER/START” key or a preprogrammed
cycle key (i.e., “E”).
NOTE: Pressing touch pad key “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and “F” will also start the dryer. The six
preprogrammed drying cycles (“A” thru “F”) have been stored in the microprocessor controller
(computer’s) memory. Refer to the Programming Manual supplied with the dryer for these
preprogrammed cycles.
4. Check to insure that the tumbler (basket) 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.
30
5. 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 is equipped with a direct spark ignition (DSI) system which has internal diagnostics. If
ignition is not established after the first attempt, the system will retry two (2) more times. 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 main doors and restart dryer (press “ENTER/START”
key).
NOTE: During the purging period, verify that ALL gas shut-off 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 assure that the water column pressure is correct and consistent.
NOTE: Water column (W.C.) pressure requirements (measured at both gas valve pressure taps)...
NATURAL GAS ------------- 3.5 INCHES W.C. (8.7 mb)
L.P. GAS ---------------------- 10.5 INCHES W.C. (26.1 mb)
IMPORTANT: There is no regulator provided in an liquid propane (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.
b. Steam Models
1) Check to insure that the steam damper is functioning properly.
6. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., lint drawer switch and sail switches
on Gas Models).
7. A reversing tumbler (basket) should never be operated with less than a 50-pound (22.68 kg) load (dry
weight). The size of the load will affect the coast-down and dwell (stop) times. The 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) f o r
a 2 minute spin time and a 5-second dwell (stop) time.
BASKET COATING
The tumbler (basket) 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 (basket)
to remove this coating.
31
8. 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.
9. Microprocessor controller (computer) programs/selections...
a. Each microprocessor controller (computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the most
commonly used parameter selections. If computer program changes are required, refer to the computer
programming manual which was shipped with the dryer.
K. SHUT DOWN INSTRUCTIONS
In the case where 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. Disconnect the heat supply:
a. GAS MODELS ... discontinue the gas supply.
1) SHUT OFF external gas supply shut-off valve.
2) SHUT OFF internal gas supply shut-off valve located in the gas valve burner area.
b. STEAM MODELS ... discontinue steam supply.
1) SHUT OFF external (location furnished) shut-off valve.
2) SHUT OFF internal steam valves in the supply lines and the return lines.

35
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 duct work 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.
SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
AFTER EVERY LOAD
Clean the lint basket. A clogged lint basket will cause poor dryer performance. The lint basket is
located in the lint drawer in the base of the dryer. Pull out the lint drawer, brush the lint off the lint basket,
and remove the lint. Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.
NOTE: Frequency of cleaning the lint screen can best be determined from experience at each location.
WEEKLY
Open the hinged panels on each side of the tumbler section and remove any lint accumulation, from the
tumbler drive motor, drive shafts, gear reducer, V-belts, drive wheels, and drive shaft bearings.
Slide the lint basket ALL the way out of the dryer and clean any lint accumulation off of the temperature
sensor bracket, which is located above the lint basket.
WARNING: TO AVOID THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE DRYER.
36
STEAM DRYERS ONLY
Clean the steam coil lint screen located on top of the steam coil. (This may have to be done more
frequently.)
MONTHLY
Apply a high-temperature grease to the four (4) 1-1/2”diameter tumbler drive shaft pillow block bearings.
(Use Shell Alvania #2 grease or equivalent.)
Retighten set screws in the collars of the four (4) 1-1/2”diameter tumbler drive shaft bearings.
Clean lint accumulation from the gas valve/burner area at the top of the dryer, the fan (impellor) motor, and the
fan (impellor) bearings located in the dryer base.
NOTE: To prevent damage, avoid cleaning and/or touching ignitor/flame-probe assembly.
EVERY 6 MONTHS
Grease the two (2) 1-1/4-inch pillow block bearings and the two (2) 1-3/8-inch pillow block bearings located in
the dryer’s base. Use Shell Alvania #2 grease or equivalent.
Grease the two (2) motors in the base with Chevron SR #1-2 grease or equivalent unless otherwise stamped on
the motor label.
Check V-belts for tightness and wear. Retighten or replace if required.
On steam dryers, clean steam coil fins. We suggest using compressed air and a vacuum cleaner with brush
attachment.
NOTE: 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 house.
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust duct work system and from dryers internal
exhaust ducting.
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION and VENTILATION AIR.
CHECK CUSTOMER FURNISHED BACK DRAFT DAMPERS IN THE

SECTION VII
COMPONENT SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS
A. TUMBLER DRIVE SYSTEM
The tumbler (basket) is supported and driven by four (4) 11-inch diameter drive wheels. Two (2) of these wheels
are attached to a 1-1/2”diameter idler shaft, while the other two (2) are attached to a 1-1/2”diameter drive shaft.
Each of the wheels is fastened to the shafts by a locking bushing. The taper lock is made up of two (2) pieces;
an inner collar, and an outer sleeve. The inner and outer elements have matching opposing tapers. As a result,
when the nut is tightened, the trantorque 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” 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 tumbler (basket). The drive shaft sticks out through the back of the dryer and has a 2B V-belt pulley
attached to it with a keypad taper lock bushing. This pulley is connected to a speed reducing idler and then to the
3 HP drive motor by 2 sets of V-belts.
The speed reducing idler shaft is supported by two (2) 1-1/4-inch diameter pillow block bearings. These pillow
blocks sit on a slotted platform, and they can be moved forward and back by loosening or tightening the bearing
adjustment bolts. This movement is needed to maintain proper tension on the V-belts that run from the
speed-reducing idler to the drive shaft.
The drive motor sits on an adjustable base so that the motor can be moved forward and back, allowing proper
tension to be maintained on the V-belts that run from the motor to the speed-reducing idler.
B. TUMBLER/BASKET
The tumbler (basket) is made of 14-gauge stainless steel perforated panels, four (4) stainless steel ribs, and two
(2) outer tumbler/basket rings made of rolled steel angle iron that has been turned on a lathe for smoothness. The
tumbler (basket) is a completely welded assembly so the perforated panels are not removable.
C. AIR BLOWER DRIVE SYSTEM
The impellor (fan) used in the AD-200 dryer is a 15-inch diameter backwardly inclined 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) 1-3/8-inch diameter 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 DOOR SWITCHES
There are two (2) of these switches located under the main loading doors. These switches ensure that the
doors are closed before the dryer can start. If the dryer is started when the load doors are open, the
microprocessor controller (computer) light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will show “door.”
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, then
the microprocessor controller (computer) L.E.D. display will show “door.”
3. Tumbler (basket) HI-LIMIT SAFETY THERMOSTAT
This disk temperature switch has a setting of 225º F. It is located below the tumbler (basket) on the
temperature sensor bracket, along side the computer sensor, and is an automatic reset type of switch.
Access to this switch is gained by sliding/pulling the lint basket completely out of the dryer.
This switch backs up the computer sensor and in case of a computer sensor malfunction will prevent the
tumbler’s (basket’s) temperature from becoming excessive. If this switch trips, the gas flow to the burner
box will be shut down; however, the tumbler (basket) will still rotate.
4. BURNER BOX HI-LIMIT SAFETY THERMOSTAT
This disk temperature switch has a setting of 330º F. It is located on the right side of the burner box, and it
is a manual reset type of switch. This switch ensures that there is 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 box will increase tripping this switch.
This will shut off the gas flow to the burner box and the dryer will not heat until this thermostat is reset,
however the tumbler (basket) will still run.
5. SAIL SWITCH (for Gas Dryers Only)
The sail switch is located in the front top of the burner box. 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 burner. This creates a negative pressure inside the burner box, and this negative pressure
pulls in the round damper and activates the sail switch. If there is an improper (low) airflow through the
dryer, the sail switch damper will not pull in, preventing the heat from coming on.
Low airflow through the dryer will be caused by overly long or blocked exhaust ducting, lack of make-up
air, or a clogged lint screen.
40
E. STEAM DAMPER ACTUATOR SYSTEM
The system consists of a hinged damper plate, pneumatic piston, and 24 volt solenoid valve with a needle valve to
control the speed of the piston actuation. On a call for heat, a 24 volt signal is applied to the 3-way/2-position
solenoid valve. This signal switches the valve so that compressed air is sent to the pistons. The piston rod
extends, pushing the hinged steam damper plate to the opened position. This allows room air to be drawn through
the hot steam coil and then through the tumbler (basket).
When the temperature set point has been reached, the 24 volt signal is removed from the solenoid valve, so that
the solenoid valve blocks the air supply to the piston, and the air in the piston is bled to the atmosphere. The spring
in the piston now retract the piston rod, closing the steam damper: The steam damper plate now covers the steam
coil and allows room air to bypass the coil before entering the tumbler (basket) for a rapid cool down.
The steam damper plate should open and close slowly and smoothly. The speed can be modulated by adjusting
the needle valve knob. Turning the knob clockwise (CW) restricts the compressed airflow and slows down the
steam damper movement. Counterclockwise (CCW) adjustment speeds up the steam damper motion. Upon
completion of adjustment, tighten the needle valve’s locking nut.

SECTION IX
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 motor(s) heat, and door indicator lights on the back side of the microprocessor (computer)
board are lit. (Refer to the illustration below.)
51
e. Open main door. The dryer must stop and ALL output indicator lights on the back side of the
microprocessor controller (computer) board must go out.
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 DSI (Direct Spark Ignition) 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” (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.
52
3. 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 L.E.D. (light emitting
diode) indicator will light “red” for up to
approximately 1.5-seconds (pre-purge 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 pre-purge, 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.
