these Important Safety Instructions:
• To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons
when using this dryer, comply with the basic warnings listed
below.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious
personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
• Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked
in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes,
etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer. These
substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items
contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical
reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
• Do not dry articles containing
rubber, plastic or similar
materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby
pants, plastic bags and pillows that may melt or burn. Some
rubber materials, when heated, can under certain circumstances
produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior of
the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct should be
cleaned approximately every 18 months by qualified service
personnel. An excessiveamount of lint build-up in these areas
could result in inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care and
Cleaning.
• Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen isblocked, damaged
or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to fabrics can
occur. If your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint
screen when finished using the drying rack.
