38 Normal Operating Sounds

Normal operating sounds
You may or may not hear the following
sounds from your new dryer:
A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.)
The flow of water is controlled by
electric solenoids. During operation
there may be a clicking sound as the
valve opens and closes to control the
water flow.
B. SUSPENSION ROLLERS The
dryer drum is supported by a set of
suspension rollers. At times there may
be a thumping or rolling sound when
the dryer starts. This may happen if the
dryer has not been in use for a period of
time, or after a heavy load has remained
in the dryer drum for an extended
period, creating a temporary flat spot on
the edge of the roller. The noise should
dissipate as the dryer operates and the
flat spots smooth out.
C. AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer
is equipped with a high volume air
handling system. In some installations
there may be some sounds associated
with air movement throughout the
dryer, including the air duct, blower, and
exhaust system. This is normal and can
vary with load size and type.
D. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The
flow of gas is controlled by electric
solenoids. During operation there may
be a clicking sound as the valve opens
and closes to control the gas flow.
E. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.)
When the burner is operating, there may
be sounds generated as the air flow
mixes with the gas flame. This noise is
normal and will only occur when the gas
is ignited in the combustion tube.
