Operating Instructions - Electrolux Frigidaire CAQE7021LW Use & Care Manual



Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your
new dryer:
A. 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 fl at spot on the edge
of the roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer
operates and the fl at spots smooth out.
B. 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.
C. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The fl ow 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 fl ow.
D. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the burner
is operating, there may be sounds generated as the
air fl ow mixes with the gas fl ame. This noise is normal
and will only occur when the gas is ignited in the
combustion tube.
