Did you clean/check the water fill probes? If these are limed up, the unit will not sense water and will not turn on.

Hi. I have a Steamist SM-79, my guess is its about 10 years old, it was not functioning when I bought the home 2 years ago. I started troubleshooting it today and found the water inlet solenoid was jammed, took it apart and reassembled and it works now. I know this by turning on the power and water. When I remove one wire from the level sensor, the valve kicks in and the tank begins to fill. But still no steam. The .15 amp fuse is OK.

There are 4 leds on the control board, red and green are on, yellow and amber are off. The control panel seems functional, its on and reads 110 degrees with a red thermostat illuminated to the right of the temperature. Are these the correct led definitions?

Green is timer on, Yellow is Heat on, Amber is water fill on, Red is power

If so, the heat does not appear to be on. But I can say only once today while working on the device I did see the yellow led on, but no more.

Anyone have further trouble shooting advice? Some voltage measurements to make or how to check the heating elements?

Hi! Iím sorry if I wonít be able to give good answers since Iím not a craftsman myself. The sauna I have at home, I actually ordered it. Maybe you could do the same instead? However, there might be some https://www.aqualinesaunas.com/sauna-kits.html available that can help you and not let you waste your work. Hope I helped in any way. Good luck!

Just want to verify, do you mean that it is a 240v unit, and not 24v.

If the heater is 240V, then this sauna heater will draw approximately 18.8amps and you would need a dedicated circuit breaker in your panel for this amp draw.  And the wire size will be #10awg.
You should use a water tight whip or flex, from wall to heater.

As far as the heat rating, we would advise you to following the manufacturer's recommendation.

I'm not home right now so don't know the model. .I think the make is Nature.  It is definitely 24v 4.5kw.

Hi Jim! Would you please give me some more information such as the voltage, kw, make and model of the heater you are installing please?

Can someone point me to the proper NEC code for the connection from the wall to the Heater itself. My heater says that all wiring must be rated for 105 degrees C. So far I have found that THHN is rated at 90 degrees in dry locations unless it is rated AWM (Appliance wiring material) which is 105 degrees. I don't know if that includes the conduit also. I wanted to use flex, the only flex I found rated for 105 is liquid tight titan hc and I have been unable to locate any locally.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check the voltage and amp draw to the unit if you can.  Chances are you need to replace the heating element and the water level probe.  These vary by generation of generator so I would check with a Technical Specialist at 800-707-2862 to determine the needed parts.

I do not have an answer but I am very interested in testing my heating element as well (SM-15).  My steambath is not producing much steam.  Please let me know if you found any answer.
