Mobile home - additional installation requirements
This dryer is suitable for mobile home installations. The
installation must conform to the Canadian Manufactured Home
Standard, CAN/CSA-Z240 MH.
Mobile home installations require:
Metal exhaust system hardware which is available for
purchase from your local Sears store or Sears Service Center.
Mobile Home Installation Kit Part Number 346764. See "Tools
and Parts" section for information on ordering.
Special provisions must be made in mobile homes to
introduce outside air into the dryer. The opening (such as a
nearby window) should be at least twice as large as the dryer
exhaust opening.

Electrical Requirements

Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
120 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused electrical
supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is also recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this dryer be provided.
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipment-
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the
dryer: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.

Gas Supply Requirements

Explosion Hazard
Use a new CSA International approved gas supply line.
Install a shut-off valve.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 13" (33 cm) water
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Gas Type
Natural gas:
This dryer is equipped for use with Natural gas. It is design-
certified by CSA International for LP (propane or butane) gases
with appropriate conversion.
Your dryer must have the correct burner for the type of gas in
your home. Burner information is located on the rating plate
in the door well of your dryer. If this information does not
agree with the type of gas available, contact your local Sears
store or Sears Service Center.
LP gas conversion:
Conversion must be made by a qualified technician.
No attempt shall be made to convert the appliance from the gas
specified on the model/serial rating plate for use with a different
gas without consulting your gas company.
Gas supply line
Must include ¹⁄₈" NPT minimum plugged tapping accessible
for test gauge connection, immediately upstream of the gas
connection to the dryer (see illustration).
¹⁄₂" IPS pipe is recommended.
³⁄₈" approved aluminum or copper tubing is acceptable for
lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m) if local codes and gas supplier
If you are using Natural gas, do not use copper tubing.
Lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m) should use larger tubing and a
different size adapter fitting.
If your dryer has been converted to use LP gas, ³⁄₈" LP
compatible copper tubing can be used. If the total length of
the supply line is more than 20 ft (6.1 m), use larger pipe.
NOTE: Pipe-joint compounds that resist the action of LP gas
must be used. Do not use TEFLON
