HOOD OR WALL CAP

• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.

• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust air flow and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.

• Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.

• Wall caps must be installed at least 12 in. above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

• If roof vents or louvered plenmns are used, they must be equivalent to a

4-in. dampened wall cap in regard to resistance to air flow, prevention of back drafts, and maintenance required to prevent clogging.

SEPARATION OF TURNS

Fox'best perfbrmance, separate all turns by at least 4 fL of straight duct, including distance between last turn and dampened wall cap.

TURNS OTHER THAN 90°

,_WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK

OF FIRE OR PERSONAL INJURY:

This dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.

Use only metal duct.

Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, any gas vent, under an enclosed floor (crawl space), or into an attic.

The accumulated lint could create a fire hazard.

Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system, especially at turns.

Inspect and clean at least once a year.

Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a kitchen exhaust.

EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECK LiST

HOOD OR WALL CAP

• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.

• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust air flow and should require little or no maintenance to prevent clogging.

• Never install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.

• Wall caps must be installed at least 12 in. above ground level or any other obstruction with the opening pointed down.

• If roof vents or louvered plenmns are used, they must be equivalent to a

4-in. dampened wall cap in regard to resistance to air flow, prevention of back drafts, and maintenance required to prevent clogging.

SEPARATION OF TURNS

Fox'best perfbrmance, separate all turns by at least 4 fL of straight duct, including distance between last turn and dampened wall cap.

TURNS OTHER THAN 90°

• One turn of 45 o or less may be ignored.

• Two 45 turns should be treated as one 90 o turn.

"Duct joints should be made air-and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape.

EXHAUST CONNECTION

,_WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK

OF FIRE OR PERSONAL INJURY:

This dryer must be exhausted to the outdoors.

Use only metal duct.

Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, any gas vent, under an enclosed floor (crawl space), or into an attic.

The accumulated lint could create a fire hazard.

Provide an access for inspection and cleaning of the exhaust system, especially at turns.

Inspect and clean at least once a year.

Never terminate the exhaust into a common duct with a kitchen exhaust.

A combination of lint and grease could create a fire hazard.

Do not obstruct incoming or exhausted air.
