Where are you located?

The exhaust and intake vents should not be connected with baffles unless in a cathedral ceiling, then a 1" gap between baffle ends.

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
