Coin-operated commercial dryer
Hide thumbs



Before proceeding with electrical installation, install the
dryer's coin-metering system (when used) in accordance
with the separate instructions provided with the meter.
The following are specific requirements for
proper and safe electrical installation of your dryer. Failure
to follow these instructions can create electrical shock and/
or a fire hazard.
This appliance MUST be properly grounded.
Electrical shock can result if the dryer is not properly grounded.
Follow the instructions in this manual for proper grounding.
Do not use an extension cord with this dryer.
Some extension cords are not designed to withstand the amounts
of electrical current this dryer utilizes and can melt, creating
electrical shock and/or fire hazard. Locate the dryer within reach
of the receptacle for the length power cord to be purchased,
allowing some slack in the cord. Refer to the pre-installation
requirements in this manual for the proper power cord to be
A U.L. listed strain relief must be installed onto
power cord. If the strain relief is not attached, the cord can be
pulled out of the dryer and can be cut by any movement of the
cord, resulting in electrical shock.
Do not use an aluminum wired receptacle with
a copper wired power cord and plug (or vice versa). A chemical
reaction occurs between copper and aluminum and can cause
electrical shorts. The proper wiring and receptacle is a copper
wired power cord with a copper wired receptacle.
NOTE: Dryers operating on 208 volt power supply will have
longer drying times than operating on 240 volt power supply.


Improper connection of the equipment
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check
with a licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
1. The dryer MUST be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by a path of least resistance for electrical current.
2. If your dryer is equipped with a power supply cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug, the
plug MUST be plugged into an appropriate, copper wired
receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances. If in doubt,
call a licensed electrician. Do not modify plug provided
with the appliance.
For a permanently connected dryer:
1. The dryer MUST be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system; or an equipment grounding con-
ductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected
to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
ALL GAS Dryers
This dryer is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for
your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged
directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not
cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
