SECTION II
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 THEIR 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.
Clean lint drawer and screen every third or fourth load.
NOTE: Frequency can best be determined at each location.
DAILY
(beginning) of each work shift.
Clean lint from the lint drawer and screen. Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from lint chamber, thermostat, and microprocessor temperature sensor (sensor bracket)
area.
WARNING: To avoid the hazard of electrical shock, discontinue electrical supply to dryer.
STEAM DRYERS
Clean steam coil fins 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 fin comb which is available from local air conditioning supply houses.
90 DAYS
Remove lint from tumbler (basket), drive motors, and surrounding areas. Remove lint from gas valve burner area
with a dusting brush or vacuum cleaner attachment.
5
NOTE: To prevent damage, avoid cleaning, and/or touching ignitor and flame-probe assembly.
Remove lint accumulation from inside control box and at rear area behind control box.
EVERY 6 MONTHS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust duct work system and from dryer’s 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 DAMPER IN EXHAUST
DUCT WORK. INSPECT and REMOVE ANY LINT ACCUMULATION WHICH
CAN CAUSE 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 dryer cabinet(s), avoid using harsh abrasives. A product intended for the
cleaning of appliances is recommended.
B. ADJUSTMENTS
7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION and EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, (bearing set screws), nonpermanent gas connections (unions, shut-off valves, orifices,
and ground connections). Motor and drive belts should be examined. Cracked or seriously frayed belts should
be replaced. Tighten loose V-belts when necessary. Complete operational check of controls and valves. Complete
operational check of ALL safety devices (door switch, lint drawer switch, sail switch, burner and hi-limit
thermostats).
C. LUBRICATION
The motor bearings, idler bearings, and tumbler (basket) bearings are permanently lubricated.
NO LUBRICATION IS NECESSARY.
The impellor (fan) shaft bearings should be lubricated every three (3) months.
6
SECTION III
INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
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: National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1-LATEST EDITION or National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70-LATEST EDITION,
or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable Canadian Standards: 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)
or Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION (for Electrical Connections).
A. ENCLOSURE, AIR SUPPLY, and EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
NOTE: The following information is very brief and general. For a detailed description, refer to the
ML-130 Installation Manual (ADC Part No. 113002).
Bulkheads and partitions around the dryer should be made of noncombustible materials. Allowances should be
made for the opening and closing of the control door and lint drawer. Also, allowances should be made in the
rear for ease of maintenance. (Refer to appropriate installation manual for recommended distances and minimum
allowances required.)
When the dryer is operating, it draws in room air, heats it, passes this 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 on gas dryers may result, and you also could have premature motor failure from
overheating. The air supply must be given careful consideration to insure proper performance of each dryer.
IMPORTANT: Make-up air must be provided from a source free of dry cleaning fumes. Make-up
air that is contaminated by dry cleaning fumes will result in irreparable damage to
motors and other dryer components.
Exhaust duct work should be designed and installed by a competent technician. Improperly sized duct work will
create excessive back pressure which will result in slow drying, increased use of energy, and shut down of the
burner by the airflow (sail) switch, burner hi-limit or lint chamber hi-heat protector thermostat. (Refer to appropriate
Installation Manual for more details.)
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED or INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
B. ELECTRICAL and GAS 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
Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION (for Electrical Connections).
7
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.
The gas dryer installation must meet the American National Standard, National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1LATEST EDITION, or in Canada, the Canadian Electrical Codes Parts 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST
EDITION (for Electrical Connections) as well as, local codes and ordinances, and must be done by a qualified
technician.
NOTE: Undersized gas piping will result in ignition problems and slow drying and can create a safety
hazard.
The dryer must be connected to the type of gas (natural or L.P. [liquid propane]) indicated on the dryer data
label. If this information DOES NOT agree with the type of gas available, contact the distributor who sold
the dryer or contact the factory.
The gas input ratings shown on the dryer data label are for elevations up to 2,000 feet (610 meters), unless
elevation requirements of over 2,000 feet (610 meters) were specified at the time the dryer order was placed with
the factory. The adjustment for dryers in the field for elevations over 2,000 feet (610 meters) are made by
changing the burner orifices. If this adjustment is necessary, contact the distributor who sold the dryer or contact
the factory.
NOTE: Any burner changes must be made by a qualified technician.
C. OPERATIONAL SERVICE CHECK PROCEDURE
1. Turn on electric power to the dryer.
2. To start dryer:
a. Display will read “READY.”
b. Press “E” on the keyboard (touchpad) of microprocessor controller (computer).
c. The dryer will start and the display will show “dr30.”
NOTE: Pressing keyboard (touchpad) selections “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and “F” will also start the dryer.
Six (6) preprogrammed drying cycles (“A” through “F”) have been stored in the computer’s
memory. (Refer to the Computer Operator’s Manual for details.)
3. Make a complete operational check of ALL the operating controls to assure that the timing is correct,
temperature selection switches are functioning, etc.
4. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits - door switch(es), hi-limit thermostat, sail
switch, cycling thermostats, etc.
5. For gas dryers 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.
8
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at the pressure tap on the gas valve body):
Natural Gas - 3.5 inches water column (W.C.) - 8.7 mb.
L.P. Gas - 10.5 inches water column (W.C.) - 26.1 mb.
6. If computer program changes are required, refer to the Phase 6 OPL User’s Manual (ADC Part No. 113022)
for details.
7. The dryer should be operated through one complete cycle to assure that no further adjustments are necessary
and that ALL components are functioning properly.
8. Check the electric service phase sequence. While the dryer is operating, check to see if the blower wheel is
rotating in the proper direction. Looking from the front, the blower wheel should spin in the clockwise (CW)
direction. If so, the phasing is correct. If the phasing is incorrect, reverse two (2) leads at connections L1, L2,
or L3 of power supply to the dryer.
9
SECTION IV
DESCRIPTION OF PARTS
A. CONTROL BOX
Lifting the control door and opening the
computer panel will reveal the control box.
Inside the control box are ALL the electronic
control components. Located on the back of
the control panel is the computer. Included in
the control box are the 30-position block, fuse
block, and transformer.
B. DRIVE MOTOR
The T.E.F.C. (Totally Enclosed, Fan-Cooled) drive motor
is located approximately lower center of the dryer. It sits
on an adjustable base so that the motor can be easily
adjusted to the left or right, up or down, forward or
backward. The drive motor is a 3/4 HP motor and operates
on 208 to 460 volts, 3-phase (3ø), 50/60 Hz.
C. HSI (HOT SURFACE IGNITION) MODULE (Gas Models Only)
The HSI (Hot Surface Ignition) system consists of a
microprocessor (computer) based control module,
along with a hot surface ignitor probe, and a flame
probe assembly. The hot surface ignitor is a silicon
carbide ignitor that upon application of 24 VAC will
glow bright orange for the inter-purge time period.
Upon ignition, the resistance in the flame sensor
electrode changes and the information is sent to the
HSI module via the sensor probe lead connection to
the module. Once the resistance is changed and
sensed, the HSI module will sustain the gas flow
(provide 24 VAC power to the gas valve).
10
D. GAS BURNER ASSEMBLY
Gas heated dryers are equipped with a gas
burner assembly consisting of three (3)
burner tubes, gas valve, glo bar, flame
sensor, sail switch, and hi-limit thermostat.
The inlet piping enters through the rear of
the dryer on the left hand side (viewing from
the front) and runs to the front of the dryer
where the gas valve is located.
E. BLOWER MOTOR and IMPELLOR
The impellor on the ML-130 is shaft driven.
The blower motor drives the shaft on which
the impellor is mounted. This enables the
impellor to run at a higher RPM, thereby
producing a higher airflow (cfm).
F. IDLER ASSEMBLY
(Viewing from the rear of the dryer) the idler
assembly is located approximately on the lower
center of the dryer. The idler assembly consists
of two (2) idler pulleys, (small and large). The
idlers’ main purpose is to reduce the speed and
increase torque provided to the tumbler
(basket) bearing. Also, at the idler assembly,
belt tension can be adjusted.
11
G. TUMBLER (BASKET) BEARING
and PULLEY ARRANGEMENT
The tumbler (basket) bearing and pulley arrangement
is located (viewing from the rear of the dryer)
approximately at the upper center of the dryer. The
arrangement consists of a pulley and two (2) bearings
which serve to drive, adjust, and support the tumbler
(basket).
H. TUMBLER (BASKET)
The tumbler (basket) consists of four (4) ribs and four
(4) perforated panels, along with a front and back, which
are screwed together as an assembly. The tumbler
(basket) also consists of tie rods, which support the
tumbler (basket) from front to back. The tumbler
(basket) support is used to mate the tumbler (basket)
to the drive system in the rear.
I. MAIN DOOR SWITCH
The main door switch is mounted to the front panel behind the main door. When
the main door opens, the switch will also open, preventing the dryer from operating.
The main door switch is a safety device and should never be disabled.
12
J. SAIL SWITCH (Gas and Electric Models Only)
The sail switch is located on the front of the
burner box for gas dryers on the right side of
the oven assembly for electric dryers. 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 or electric 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 improper airflow, the damper will not
pull in, preventing the burner from coming on.
Improper airflow can be caused by improperly
designed exhaust ducting where the duct run
is too long or has too many sharp bends in it.
It can also be caused by a lack of make-up air.
K. HI-LIMIT (Gas and Electric Models Only)
A hi-limit thermostat is located at the burner. This is an manual
reset disc-type thermostat set at 330º F (166º C) for gas dryers
and at 290º F (143º C) for electric dryers. If the flame in the
burner should get too hot, this thermostat will shut off the burner.
This is generally caused by low airflow through the dryer.
L. MANUAL RESET THERMOSTAT
This is located inside the dryer in the lint compartment
above the lint screen. This thermostat senses the
heated air after it passes through the tumbler (basket).
If the air temperature gets too hot, the thermostat
will shut off the burner. The dryer will not run until
the air temperature cools down. At this time, the
manual reset thermostat must be reset manually or
the 24 VAC burner circuit will never be completed.
Tumbler (Basket) and blower will run but the dryer
will not heat. If the temperature sensor opens the
display will read “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK
TEMP SENSOR FUSE” with an audio indication. If
the thermostat opens the display will read “dRUM
SAFETY FAIL” with an audio indication.
13
M. LINT DRAWER
The lint drawer is a pull-out type and is located at the
bottom of the dryer in the lint compartment. Simply
grab the lint drawer handle, slide out the drawer, brush
off the lint, and slide the drawer back in. The lint screen
must be kept clean in order for the dryer to operate
properly and efficiently.
N. LINT DRAWER SWITCH
The lint drawer switch is located in the lint compartment
and attached to the side of the lint drawer track. The
lint drawer switch insures that the dryer will operate
only when the lint drawer is completely closed. This is
a safety device and should never be disabled.
O. STEAM DAMPER SYSTEM
The newest type system is called the steam
damper. It is shown to the right and it uses
a piston with compressed air to open and
close the steam damper which in turn allows
the air to flow either through the coil for
heat, or under the coil for cool down. Air
supply is 80 PSI +/- 10 PSI (5.51 bars +/0.69 bars).

To Test and Adjust Gas (Water Column) Pressure
There are two (2) types of devices commonly used to measure water column pressure. They are spring and
mechanical-type gauges and manometers. The spring and mechanical-type gauge is not recommended, because
it is easily damaged and not always accurate. A manometer is simply a glass or transparent plastic tube with a
scale in inches. When filled with water and pressure applied, the water in the tube rises showing the exact water
column pressure.
NOTE: Manometers are available from the factory by ordering ADC Part No. 122804.
1. To Test Gas Water Column (W.C.) Pressure:
a. Connect water column test gauge connection to gas valve pressure tap (1/8” NPT). This pressure tap is
located on the outlet (manifold) side of the valve.
b. Start dryer. With burner on, the correct water column reading in inches would be:
Natural Gas - 3.5 Inches Water Column (8.7 mb).
L.P. Gas - 10.5 Inches Water Column (26.1 mb).
19
2. To Adjust Water Column Pressure (natural gas only, L.P. gas must
be regulated at source):
a. Remove the slotted vent cap on the top of the valve.
b. Turn the slotted adjustment screw located on top of the valve
next to the terminals. Turn clockwise (CW) to increase manifold
pressure and counterclockwise (CCW) to decrease.
NOTE: If correct W.C. pressure cannot be achieved, problem
may be due to an undersized gas supply line, a faulty or
underrated gas meter, etc.
To Convert from Natural Gas to L.P. Gas
NOTE: ALL dryers are sold as natural gas, unless otherwise
specified at the time the dryer order was placed. For
L.P. gas the dryer must be converted as follows.

SECTION VII
PHASE 6 OPL SYSTEM DIAGNOSTICS
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST DISCONNECT and LOCKOUT THE ELECTRIC SUPPLY and
THE GAS SUPPLY or THE STEAM SUPPLY BEFORE ANY COVERS or
GUARDS ARE REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE TO ALLOW ACCESS
FOR CLEANING, ADJUSTING, INSTALLATION, or TESTING OF ANY
EQUIPMENT per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)
STANDARDS.
ALL major circuits, including door, microprocessor temperature sensor, heat and motor circuits are monitored.
The Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) will inform the user, via the L.E.D. (light emitting diode)
display of certain failure codes, along with indicators both in L.E.D. display and at the output of each relay (and
door switch circuit) to easily identify failures.
A. DIAGNOSTIC (L.E.D. [light emitting diode] DISPLAY) FAILURE CODES
1. SAIL SWITCH FAIL- This routine will prevent start up on the machine unless the sail switch is in the
correct position. If the sail switch is closed prior to start up the display will read “SAIL SWITCH FAIL”
along with an audio indication.
2. No AIRFLOW- If the sail switch opens during cycle operation the display will read “No AIRFLOW”
along with an audio indication. The machine will continue to run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until
the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C). Upon failure the machine will shut down and display “No
AIRFLOW” with an audio indication.
3. bURNER SAFETY FAIL- Routine monitors the temperature above the burner. If the burner hi-limit
switch opens the display will read “bURNER SAFETY FAIL.” The machine will run with no heat for
three (3) minutes or until the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C). Upon failure the machine will shut
down and display “bURNER SAFETY FAIL” with an audio indication.
4. dRUM SAFETY FAIL- This routine monitors the tumbler (basket) temperature if the tumbler (basket)
hi-limit switch opens prior or during the cycle while the heat was on the machine will display “dRUM
SAFETY FAIL.” The machine will continue to run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature
drops below 100º F (38º C). Upon failure the machine will shut down and display “dRUM SAFETY
FAIL” with an audio indication.
5. No HEAT- This routine monitors the burner ignition. If the burner mis-ignites (does not light) the HSI
(Hot Surface Ignition) module will check to see of the microprocessor program has any retries left. The
standard retry count is two (2). If the module notices that there are retries left it will purge for one (1)
minute then try to ignite the burner again. The HSI module will try this for a total of three (3) times or until
there are no retries left. If the burner does not ignite after three (3) attempts the L.E.D. (light emitting
diode) display will display the error code “no heat” with an audio indication. When this occurs the
machine will run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C).
IMPORTANT: For other countries, such as Australia, the retry count may not apply due to local
approvals.
39
6. bURNER CONTROL FAIL- This routine monitors the ignition control’s gas valve output response. If
the valve output signal is not present from the ignition control within the valve time limits the Phase 6
microprocessor controller (computer) determines the ignition control has failed. If this occurs when the
cycle is active the machine will display “bURNER CONTROL FAIL.” If the tumbler (basket) temperature
is above 100º F (38º C) the machine will continue to display “bURNER CONTROL FAIL.” The machine
will run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C). If the
tumbler (basket) temperature is below 100º F (38º C) upon failure the machine will shut down and display
“bURNER CONTROL FAIL” with an audio indication.
7. bURNER FLAME FAIL- This routine allows two (2) flame out retries to occur before proceeding into
the error. The count of two (2) will be established every time the call for heat was to occur. Only if it
reaches the count of two (2) before the tumbler (basket) temperature has reached the set temperature
will this error be triggered. The machine will run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature
drops below 100º F (38º C). If the tumbler (basket) temperature is below 100º F (38º C) upon failure, the
machine will shut down and display “bURNER FLAME FAIL” with an audio indication. This process
will occur every time the heat output is active.
8. MAIN DOOR- This monitors the door circuit. If the machine was not active and the main door was
opened the display would read “REAdY.” If a program attempt was made with the main doors open the
display will read “MAIN dOOR” with an audio indication. If the machine is active and the main door was
opened the display would read “MAIN dOOR” with no audio indication and the dryer will shut down.
Once the main door has closed the display would read “PRESS START” press the “ENTER/START”
key and it will continue the programmed cycle.
9. LINT dOOR- This monitors the lint drawer and door circuit. If the machine was not active and the lint
drawer and door was opened the display would read “REAdY.” If a program attempt was made with the
lint drawer and door open the display would read “LINT dOOR” with an audio indication. If the machine
is active and the lint drawer and door was opened the display would read “LINT dOOR” with no audio
indication and the dryer will shut down. Once the lint door was closed the display would read “PRESS
START” press the “ENTER/START” key and it will continue the programmed cycle.
10. TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE- This routine monitors the tumbler (basket)
temperature. When the temperature sensor or fuse opens with the machine not active the display will
read “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE” with an audio indication. If the machine
was active at the time that the temperature sensor or fuse opened the display would read “TEMP SENSOR
FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE.” If the tumbler (basket) temperature is above 100º F (38º C) the
machine will continue to display “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE” with an audio
indication and run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C).
If the tumbler (basket) temperature is below 100º F (38º C) upon failure the machine will shut down and
display “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE” with an audio indication. The display
will continue to read “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE” an audio indication will
sound for approximately 5 seconds, every 30 seconds until the problem is corrected or the power to the
dryer is disconnected (and the problem is corrected).
NOTE: Once the Phase 6 microprocessor controller (computer) detects a problem in the heat circuit, it
updates every 30 seconds, so that if the problem was a loose connection in the circuit which
corrected itself, the “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE” condition
would automatically be cancelled and the display will return to “REAdY.”
40
11. ROTATE SENSOR FAIL- Indicates a rotational sensor circuit failure meaning that there is a fault
somewhere in the tumbler (basket) rotating circuit, or the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller
(computer) program related to this circuit (program location 2) is set incorrectly. In the active mode
it should be (ROTATE SENSOR ACTIVE), if the dryer is not equipped with the optional rotational
sensor it should be set in the nonactive mode (No ROTATE SENSOR).
NOTE: RPM- This routine monitors the timing response from the existing rotational sensor input and
derives a RPM measurement. To display this RPM measurement (press the “ENTER/
START” key once and release, then press the “ENTER/START” key a second time and hold.
This will display the RPM measurement). The rotational sensor must be active for operation
of this feature.
12. CHECK MAIN FUSE- Indicates that the circuit fuse protection which is located on the back side
of the Phase 6 microprocessor controller (computer) the display would read “CHECK MAIN FUSE.”
If the display continues after the fuse has been replaced then it is the fault of the Phase 6 microprocessor
controller (computer).
B. L.E.D. (light emitting diode) DISPLAY INDICATORS
The L.E.D. (light emitting diode) indicator dots located on the top portion of the display indicates various Phase 6
OPL computer output functions while a cycle is in progress. These indicator dots (as shown in the illustration
below) DO NOT necessarily mean that the outputs are functioning. They are only indicating that the function
output should be active (on).
1. L.E.D. DISPLAY INDICATOR NUMBER 1

a. Air Jet Circuit - OPTIONAL
1) This indicator dot is on at the end of the dryer cycle for approximately 60 seconds.
C. PHASE 6 OPL MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLER (COMPUTER) RELAY
OUTPUT L.E.D. (light emitting diode) INDICATORS
There are a series of five (5) L.E.D. indicators (ORANGE LIGHTS) located at the backside of the Phase 6 OPL
microprocessor controller (computer). These are identified or labeled (from top to bottom in the illustration below
as: FAN-BLOWER, FOR-FORWARD, REV-REVERSE, AIR-AIR-JET, HT1-HEAT OUTPUT. There are a
series of seven (7) L.E.D. indicators (red lights) FUSE-MAIN FUSE, LINT-LINT DOOR, MAIN-MAIN
DOOR, DRUM-TUMBLER HI-LIMIT, SAIL-SAIL SWITCH, BURN-BURNER HI LIMIT, FLAME-FLAME
PROBE). The L.E.D. in the center of the board (red light) indicates power supplied to the Phase 6 OPL
microprocessor controller (computer). These L.E.D.’s indicate the inputs and outputs of the Phase 6 OPL
microprocessor (computer) as it monitors the safety circuits.
42
1. “FAN” (BLOWER) Output L.E.D. Indicator
a. If the dryer is started and the blower motor is not operating, yet the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor
controller (computer) display fan indicator dot and power supply input L.E.D. are on, but the fan
output L.E.D. is off, then the fault is the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) itself.
1) If the motor is not operating. The fan indicator dot and output L.E.D. are also on, then the
problem (fault) is elsewhere (i.e., external of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller
[computer]).
2. “FOR” (FORWARD) Output L.E.D. Indicator (for Optional Reversing Model ONLY)
a. If the dryer is started and the blower motor is operating, but the drive (tumbler/basket) motor is not,
yet the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) display “FORWARD” indicator dot is on,
the “FOR” (FORWARD) motor output L.E.D. is off; then the fault is the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor
controller (computer) itself.
1) If the drive (tumbler and basket) motor is not operating and the forward indicator dot and output
L.E.D. is on; then the problem (fault) is elsewhere (i.e., external of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor
controller [computer]).
3. “REV” (REVERSE) Output L.E.D. Indicator (for Optional Reversing Models ONLY)
a. If the dryer is started and the blower motor is operating but the drive (tumbler and basket) motor is
not, yet the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) displays “REVERSE” indicator dot is
on but the “REV” (REVERSE) motor output L.E.D. is off; then the fault is of the Phase 6 OPL
microprocessor controller (computer) itself.
1) If the drive (tumbler and basket) motor is not operating and reverse indicator dot and output
L.E.D. is on; then the problem (fault) is elsewhere (i.e., external of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor
controller [computer]).
4. “AIR” (AIR JET) Output L.E.D. Indicator - OPTIONAL
a. “AIR” is on with the display dot at the end of the dry cycle once the display reads “dONE,” it is on for
approximately 60 seconds and the output L.E.D. indicator and the display dot go out. If the air jet
does not energize it is not the fault of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer). If the
output L.E.D. or dot DO NOT go on it is the fault of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller
(computer).
5. “HT1” (HEAT) Output L.E.D. Indicator
a. If the dryer is started and there is “No Heat” yet the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer)
display heat circuit indicator dot is on, but the “HT1” output L.E.D. indicator is off; then the fault is in
the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller (computer) itself.
1) If the dryer is started and there is “No Heat” yet both the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller
(computer) display indicator dots and the “HT1” output L.E.D. indicator are on; then the problem
(fault) is elsewhere (i.e., external of the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor controller [computer]).
43
6. “FUSE” (MAIN FUSE) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. Should be on ALL the time (even if the dryer is not running). If the L.E.D. is not on; then the display
will read “CHECK MAIN FUSE.” If the main fuse is good then the fault is on the Phase 6
microprocessor controller (computer).
7. “LINT” (LINT DOOR) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. Should be on ALL the time (unless the lint door is opened then the “LINT” L.E.D. indicator will go
out).
b. If the dryer is active (running) and the lint door is opened the “LINT” L.E.D. indicator will go out and
the display will read “LINT dOOR.” The dryer will stop until the Lint Drawer has been closed, at
which time the L.E.D. display will read “PRESS START.” At this time, to resume the drying cycle
press “ENTER/START” key.
8. “MAIN” (MAIN DOOR) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. Should be on ALL the time (unless the lint door is open or the main door is opened then the “MAIN”
L.E.D. indicator will go out).
b. If the dryer is active (running) and the main door is opened the “MAIN” L.E.D. indicator will go out
and the display will read “MAIN dOOR.” The dryer will stop until the main door has been closed, at
which time the L.E.D. display will read “PRESS START.” At this time, to resume the drying cycle
press “ENTER/START” key.
9. “DRUM” (TUMBLER [BASKET] HI-LIMIT) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. Should be on at ALL times (unless the tumbler [basket] hi-limit switch opens prior during the cycle
while the heat was on the display would read “dRUM SAFETY FAIL”). The machine will run with
no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature drops below 100º F (38º C). Then the machine
will shut down still displaying “dRUM SAFETY FAIL” with an audio indication.
10. “SAIL” (SAIL SWITCH) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. This routine will prevent start up on the machine unless the sail switch is in the correct position. If the
sail switch is in the closed position prior to start, the “SAIL” output L.E.D. indicator will be off, the
machine will not start and the display will read “SAIL SWITCH FAIL” along with an audio indication.
b. If the sail switch opens during the cycle the “SAIL” output L.E.D. will go out and the display will read
“NO AIRFLOW.” The machine will run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature
drops below 100º F (38º C). Then the machine will shut down still displaying “NO AIRFLOW” along
with an audio indication.
11. “BURN” (BURN HI-LIMIT) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. This routine monitors the temperature of the burner. If the burner hi-limit opens during the cycle while
the heat was on the “BURN” output L.E.D. indicator goes out and the display reads “bURNER
SAFETY FAIL.” The machine will run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the temperature
drops below 100º F (38º C) then the machine will shut down still displaying “bURNER SAFETY
FAIL” with an audio indication.
44
12.“FLAME” (bURNER CONTROL FAIL) Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. This routine monitors the ignition control’s gas valve output response. If the valve output signal is not
present from the ignition control within the valve time limits the microprocessor determines the ignition
control has failed. If this occurs when the cycle is active the “FLAME” output L.E.D. indicator will
go out and the display will read “bURNER CONTROL FAIL.” The machine will run with no heat for
three (3) minutes or until the temp drops below 100º F (38º C). Then the machine will shut down still
displaying “bURNER CONTROL FAIL” with an audio indication.
13.“POWER SUPPLY” Input L.E.D. Indicator
a. Should be on at ALL times (even if the dryer is not running). The power supply L.E.D. (light
emitting diode) output indicator will not be on if the power supply fuse to the Phase 6 OPL microprocessor
is not present. If the power supply fuse is faulty the L.E.D. output will be off and there will be no
display or keyboard (touchpad) function. The “FUSE,” “LINT,” and “DRUM” output L.E.D. indicators
will remain on.

c. If no voltage is present at J7 9-pin connector no. 4 to ground, but voltage is present at no. 3 to ground. The
problem is a faulty switch, wires or termination between J7 to J8 and J8 to the lint switch no. 20 and 21.
d. If no voltage is present at J7 9-pin connector no. 3 to ground, then voltage should not be present at no.
5 to ground. Replace the board.
6. Main Door Condition
NOTE: Make sure main door and lint door are closed. Also, if checking either switch, the plunger
must be depressed.
a. Check L.E.D. (light emitting diode) input light “MAIN” on the component side of the computer. If the
light is on, replace the computer.
b. Check voltage (24 VAC) from J7 9-pin connector no. 5 to ground. If voltage is present, check no. 6 to
ground. If voltage is present, replace board.
c. If no voltage is present at J7 9-pin connector no. 6 to ground, but voltage is present at no. 5 to ground. The
problem is a faulty switch, faulty wires or terminations J7 to J8. J8 to J5 and J5 to main door switch no.
31 and no. 32.
7. “No Heat” drive and blower motors run, display reads normal (gas models).
a. Check L.E.D. (light emitting diode) input light “HT1” on the component side of the computer. If the light
is on replace the board.
b. If the L.E.D. (light emitting diode) input light “HT1” on the component side of the computer is on and
there is no voltage to the HSI (Hot Surface Ignition) module “w” the display will read “BURNER CONTROL
FAIL.” The problem is faulty wires or terminations between microprocessor and HSI (Hot Surface
Ignition) module.
c. If voltage is present on the HSI (Hot Surface Ignition) module “w” to ground. Check voltage at the gas
valve if voltage is present across the two (2) “yellow” wires at the gas valve and the gas supply is on then
the fault is that of the gas valve.
8. Microprocessor (Computer)
a. Replace the temperature sensor underneath the tumbler (basket) on a bracket (the bullet shaped device).
b. If it still reads “TEMP SENSOR FAIL CHECK TEMP SENSOR FUSE,” unplug J3 4-pin connector from
the temperature sensor bracket. Also, unplug the microprocessor J14 4-pin connector from the computer
board. Take a continuity reading from J14 no. 1 to J3 no. 1, then from J14 no. 2 to J3 no. 2.
If there is no continuity, check for break in wire, a short to the ground, loose terminations, or even replace
the wire.
If there is continuity, computer board is faulty.

IMPORTANT
MANUAL RESET HI-LIMIT INSTRUCTIONS
FOR PHASE 6 MODELS
This dryer was manufactured with a manual reset burner hi-limit and tumbler (basket)/lint chamber hi-limit
thermostat which is monitored by the Phase 6 computer. If either manual reset thermostat is open prior to start
of the drying cycle, the dryer will start momentarily and then shut down, the Phase 6 computer will display an
error code with an audio indication. If the tumbler (basket)/lint chamber hi-limit thermostat is open, the display
will read “dRUM SAFETY FAIL.” If the burner hi-limit thermostat is open, the display will read “bURNER
SAFETY FAIL.”
If either manual reset hi-limit thermostat opens during a drying cycle, the display will show the applicable error
code described above along with an audio indication. If the drum temperature is above 100º F (38º C), the dryer
will continue to run with no heat for three (3) minutes or until the drum temperature has flattened below 100º F
(38º C). The clear/stop button on the Phase 6 keyboard (touchpad) must be pressed to clear the error condition.
The open manual reset hi-limit thermostat must be reset “manually” prior to the start of the next cycle.
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 and the tumbler (basket) hi-limit is located
in the lint chamber area.
WARNING: Discontinue power to dryer before attempting to reset hi-limit.
IMPORTANT
This dryer is equipped with a burner hilimit and tumbler/lint chamber hi-limit
thermostat which must be reset manually.
WARNING: Discontinue power to dryer
before attempting to reset hi-limit.

SECTION VIII
TECHNICAL INFORMATION
The following section contains various technical information important to the service person in servicing and
maintaining the dryer.
A. MOTOR PLATE (HIGH and LOW VOLTAGE)
The motor plate is located on the side of the drive motor (refer to illustration) and contains a graphical representation
of the motor wiring for both low and high voltage ratings.
Removing the cap reveals the wiring to the motor. On each wire there is a number which corresponds to the
numbers on the motor plate. Depending on whether the dryer is operating on low or high voltage, the wiring
should match the motor plate as follows:
The dots and lines represent connections (refer to illustration).
For example:
On low voltage - wire no. 14 is connected to wire no. 4
- wire no. 1 is connected to wire no. 7, which in turn are both connected to L1
On high voltage - wire no. 14 is insulated or capped
- wire no. 4 is connected to wire no. 7
- wire no. 1 is connected to L1
