Recessed Area and Closet Installation
This dryer may be installed in a recessed area or closet.
If a closet door or louvered door is installed, the minimum
unobstructed air openings in the top and bottom of the door
are required. For recessed area and closet installations, minimum
clearances can be found on the serial tag on the dryer.

Dimensions shown are minimum spacings required. Consider
allowing more space for ease of installation, servicing, and
compliance with local codes and ordinances.
Additional spacing for companion appliances and clearances
for walls, doors, and floor moldings should also be
considered. Add spacing of 25 mm (1") on all sides of dryer
to reduce noise transfer.
This dryer must not be installed behind a lockable door,
a sliding door or a door with a hinge on the opposite side
to that of the dryer.
The dryer must be exhausted outdoors.
No other fuel-burning appliance may be installed in the same
closet as the dryer.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
For Electric Dryers Only:
This dryer is supplied without an electric cord and plug. It
must be connected by a qualified electrician to a single-phase
electricity supply at the voltage shown on the dataplate, using
a suitable fixed wiring installation in accordance with local and
national wiring regulations.
A 3-wire circular cord of minimum conductor side of 4 mm
cross-section area should be used.
A 30A supply fuse should be used, and a switch with a
minimum contact separation of 3 mm in both poles must be
incorporated into the fixed wiring for dryer disconnection. The
dryer should be positioned so that the disconnection switch is
easily accessible to the user.
A cord clamp bushing is provided on the dryer, and should
be tightened on completion of wiring. The electrical mains
terminals are located behind the small rear access panel
(terminal block cover), and connections should be made in
accordance with the terminal markings. Remember to
replace the terminal access panel (terminal block cover).
