  • If your dryer is installed into a cupboard, the door much have louvers (pictured below)
  • It's recommended to keep the rear of the product away from the wall
  • The room in which the dryer is kept needs to have enough ventilation to supply a cool intake of air.
  • We'd recommend a maximum room temperature of 39 degrees celsius.
