Exhaust System Check List
HOOD or WALL CAP
e Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or
entry of birds or other wildlife.
e Termination should present minimal resistance to
the exhaust air flow and should require little or no
maintenance to prevent clogging.
e Never install screen over exhaust duct.
e Wall caps must be installed at least 12" above
ground level or any other obstruction with the
opening pointed down.
e If roof vents or louvered plenums are used, they
must be equivalent to a 4" dampered wall cap in
regard to resistance to air flow, prevention of back
drafts and maintenance required to prevent clogging.
SEPARATION OF TURNS
For best performance, separate all turns by at least 4 ft.
of straight duct, including distance between last turn
and dampered wall cap.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90°
e One turn of 45° or less may be ignored.
e Two 45° turns should be treated as one 90°.
e Fach turn over 45° shouid be treated as one 90°.
SEALING OF JOINTS
e All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The
male end of each section of duct must point away
from the dryer.
¢ Do not assemble the duct work with fasteners
that extend into the duct. They will serve as a
collection point for lint.
e Duct joints can be made air and moisture-tight
by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct tape.
INSULATION
Duct work which runs through an unheated
area or is near an air conditioning duct, should be
insulated to reduce condensation and lint build up.
Gas Connection Information
Installation must conform with local codes and
ordinances, or in their absence the NATIONAL FUEL
GAS CODE, ANSI 7223.1.
Gas Valve and Burner
This gas dryer is equipped with a Valve & Burner
Assembly for use only with natural gas. Using a separate
conversion kit, your local Service organization can
convert this dryer for use with gases listed on the rating
plate. ALL. CONVERSIONS MUST BE MADE BY
PROPERLY TRAINED AND QUALIFIED PERSONNEL
AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL CODES
AND ORDINANCE REQUIREMENTS.
Gas Supply
* Supply line is to be 1/2" rigid pipe, (3/8" copper tubing
may be used if the dryer is operated on Liquetied
Petroleum gas), and equipped with an accessible shutoff
within 6 feet of, and in the same room with the dryer.
Increase pipe size for runs longer than 20 feet.

GAS SUPPLY
* Pipe dope must be resistant to the action of L.P. gases
and applied sparingly to all male threads.
* Tf local codes permit, it is recommended the dryer be
connected to the gas supply with a flexible metal connector.
A WARNING: Never reuse old flexible connec-
tors. The use of old flexible connectors can cause
gas leaks and personal injury. Always use NEW
flexible connectors when installing a gas appliance.
* A 1/8" National Pipe Taper thread plugged
tapping, accessible for test gauge connection,
must be installed immediately upstream of the
gas supply connection to the dryer. Contact
your local gas utility should you have questions
on the installation of the plugged tapping.
® Protection of Dryer During Pressure Test:
- Whea test pressure 1s in excess of 1/2 PSIG
(3.45kPa), disconnect dryer from gas supply
line prior to test.
- When test pressure is equal to or less than
1/2 PSIG (3.45kPa), close the shutoff valve
upstream of the dryer, prior to test.
* After gas supply is connected to dryer, open
external shutoff valve.
Leak Test
Check all connections for leaks with soapy
solution or equivalent. Leak test solutions must not
contain ammonia which could cause damage to
brass fittings or pipe. CAUTION: NEVER USE
AN OPEN FLAME TO TEST FOR GAS LEAKS.

Bathroom or Bedroom Installation
* The dryer MUST be exhausted to the outdoors.
See EXHAUST INFORMATION section.
* The installation must conform with the local codes,
or in the absence of local codes, with the National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.
SERVICING: Consideration must be given to provide adequate clearances for installation
and servicing.
A CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring errors
can cause improper and dangerous operation (verify proper operation after
servicing/installation).
Additional Installation Instructions
If all rigid metal duct cannot be used, then flexible all metal venting can be used,
but it will reduce the maximum recommended duct length. In special installations
when it is impossible to make a connection with the above recommendations, then
UL listed clothes dryer transition duct may be used as transition venting between
the dryer and wall connection only. The use of this ducting will affect dry time.
If flexible transition duct is necessary, only UL listed duct identified for use with
clothes dryers is approved. The following directions must be followed.
* Use the Shortest Length Possible.
© Stretch the Duct to its Maximum Length.
* Do Not Crush or Collapse.
* Never Use Transition Duct Inside the Wall, or Inside the Dryer.
® Avoid Resting the Duct on Sharp Objects.
® Venting Must Conform to Local Building Codes.
