fiis
CaliforniaSafe DrinkingWaterand ToxicEnforcementAct
act requires the governor
of California to publish a list of
substances known to the state
to cause cancer, birth defects
or other reproductive harm
and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposure
to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause
minor exposure to four of these
substances, namely benzene,
carbon monoxide, formaldehyde
and soot, caused primarily by the
incomplete combustion of natural
gas or U fuels.
Properly adjusted dryers will
minimize incomplete combustion.
Exposure to these substances can
be minimized further by properly
venting the dryer to the outdoors.

Before every dryer use, clean the
lint filter. It is easier to remove
the lint when your fingers are
moistened.
To keep your dryer operating at
peak performance, be sure to have
a technician vacuum the lint from
the machine eve~ three years.
To store your dryer for a short
period of time, disconnect the
power supply and clean the lint
filter.

Care& Cleaning
Inspect and clean the dryer
k
exhaust ducting at least once
a year to prevent clogging. A
partially clogged exhaust can
lengthen the drying time.
To clean the exhaust duct follow
these steps:
1 Turn off electrical supply by
disconnecting the plug from
the wall socket.
2 Disconnect exhaust duct from
the dryer.
3 Vacuum the exhaust duct with
the hose attachment or attach a
rag to a pole or drain cleaning
wire and clean duct.
. Make sure the inside flaps of the
exhaust hood move freely (you
may want to check with a mirror).

●
Make sure inside flaps are fully
open when dryer is operating.
Make sure there is not wild life
(birds, insec~, etc.) nesting
inside the exhaust duct or hood.
