INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
■■ 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20- amp fused electrical
supply is required.
■■ A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
Check that the fuse or circuit breaker matches the rating

wall, ceiling, attic, crawlspace, or a concealed space of a
building. Only rigid or flexible metal vent shall be used
for exhausting.

and turns.
■■ When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
as possible.
■■ Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Exhaust hoods:
■■ Use the fewest 90° turns possible.
■■ Must be at least 12" (305 mm) from ground or any object
that may obstruct exhaust (such as flowers, rocks, bushes,
or snow).
Recommended Style:
Louvered hood

Box hood
Acceptable Style:
Determine vent length and elbows needed for
best drying performance
■■ Use the “Vent System Chart” below to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified in
the Vent system chart. Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
■■ Shorten the life of the dryer.
■■ Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
The “Vent System Chart” provides venting requirements that will
help to achieve the best drying performance.
