Frequently Answers and Questions

What should be done if you smell gas?
Do not light a match or cigarette, turn on any gas or electrical appliances, and immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone.
How to prevent fire when installing the exhaust ducting?
Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4" diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet for exhausting to the outside. Punctured ductwork can cause a fire if it collapses or becomes otherwise restricted in use or during installation.
What precautions should be taken when using the dryer?
Keep the area underneath and around the dryer free of combustible materials, and do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic, or similar materials.
What should be done if the dryer is malfunctioning or damaged?
Unplug the dryer from the power supply or disconnect it at the household distribution panel, and do not attempt to operate it.
