Bought an older house with a sauna already in it. Has a finlania sauna heater When I hit the switch on the heater I can hear a click that it turned on but nothing lights up and no steam ever comes out. Wondering if I need to buy a new sauna heater or if I just need a part (like a heating element)

ok, i've read quite a few of the posts and haven't seen anything on the test values for the MSTS remote temp sensor for my Mr Steam MSSUPER1E unit.  Does anyone have the resistance measurements at 70F and 110 (or Huh) .

The help is much appreciated...and thanks for the forum. i'm been reading for quite awhile, even though I just joined(to post this request).

George, can you provide some more details?
  • What is the model number?
  • What is the kw size of your generator?
  • How many elements does your generator use

With this information, I would be better able to determine if it is compatible.  Feel free to send pictures too!

I have a kohler steam shower- heating element K500497 that has been discontinued by Kohler- they basically told me to buy a new steam unit in that the part is no longer available- it is a 5KW 240 volt heat element- I saw a 5KW 240 volt heat element AMRC3003-10- can I replace the Kohler K-500497 with the AMRC3003-10 and have it work effectively- george

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 sauna kits 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.
