Sprint Gas Dryers - What to Expect

Sprint Gas Dryers - What to Expect

Sprint 2000 Gas Dryers - buying used - what to expect

Keep in mind our goal on selling these dryers is to save you up to 50% off the cost of new.

1. Condensation - there will be some discoloration on the outside of the dryer - very typical .
Generally - the older the dryer the more discoloration. There's also always seems to be some rust inside the dryer - this is due to unprotected metal - no need for concern.
2. Insulation - these dryer are well insulated - however during the course of years of use sometimes this insulation needs to be replaced - A very simple process. Basically it's a product called duct board insulation. This is not covered under warranty - but we can buy it at a reduced cost & and we'll carry that cost to you the buyer.  Usual costs if you replace all the insulation is around $400.00 plus shipping.
3. Dryer are always dirty inside - we will always vacuum them out.  We also will wipe down the outside of the dryer as best we can.
4. Hi temp red gasket material (1" wide x 1/8 thick) - this always has to be replaced - Screen Printing Products Inc. will always replace this material - we always leave the old gasket material in place ( always brittle) so as the show where the new should be placed - very simple process.
Scrap off the old - & peel and stick on the new - always clean the surface before placing the new.
5. Belt condition - we'll give it a 1 -10 point rating system - 10 being in excellent condition -
If the belt needs to be replaced we will offer a new belt at our cost. We deal directly with the manufacturers so we can carry on the distributor pricing. (Unless a new belt is negotiated in the deal.)
Things we check and warranty. (60 days parts only)
1. All bearing connected with all fans - this always seems to be a concern- we will replace the bearings parts only - unless you have a certified tech install the dryer - then it's up for discussion- We always pre-determine the conditions of the bearings and report it to the buyer
2. All working parts which make these dryer operational are covered under warranty

Electric Dryers - falls in the same category as gas dryer
Things that are not an issue compared to gas
Bearings / insulation / Red gasket material is not needed

Things that could be an issue:
IR panels/ contactors
