The problem was the water inlet valve was
not closing all the way, causing the generator
to slowly overfill.

The over full site glass is probably causing the Honeywell pressure switch to trip. The tank is likely overfilling due to the water inlet valve not closing all the way, slowly allowing water to pass through.  The water level probes and the  tank should be cleaned out too.

On the Amerec AI 18 steam generator, the Honeywell over pressure control
trips. This control is set to 10PSI, & the Asco Tri Point primary switch is set to
The service company has been out numerous times & still hasn't r solved this
I did notice that the water level was full, instead of 1/2 to 3/4 on the gauge
glass, suggesting that the unit is overfilling.
Also there is a large amount of water coming out of the steam heads when
first turning the unit on.

I have a Steam Mist Series 8KW Generator ran with a secondary on/off switch controller.  When turned on it will produce good steam for 2-5 minutes, time will vary.  Then the unit shuts down on its own.
Any suggestions?

Thank you so much for your suggestion. A guy at the mr steam technical support department suggest me to get ms1-pc control unit which cost $350.
I think it is good idea to replace the whole system. I will think about it and I will keep you guys updated.

thanks again

That generator has been discontinued for over a decade.  While you can purchase a replacement control, we would recommend replacing the unit with a new generator system.  If you want to try the  replacement control, we would need to know which control you currently have in place to determine the proper wiring for the replacement control.

If you elect to replace the generator with a new system, it would be the current version of the MS225E with a new warranty.  The plumbing connections will be pretty to close to where the existing ones are.  All of the controls and compatible options are displayed on the same page for your convenience.

Feel free to call in and talk to a Residential Bathing Specialist to discuss in greater detail and to review your options.

I've installed my own sauna as part of a basement remodel, and I'm pleased with the installation in general, but I have noticed a significant heat stratification issue, and I'm not sure how to address it. 

Essentially, the heat rises, as it does, to the top, (~6.5 foot tall sauna) but the bench is only about 2.5 feet above the floor.  So my head and chest are pretty hot, midsection is warm, and my legs and feet are cold.  I'd estimate there's a ~40 degree difference from my head to my feet, which is a bit odd.  When I stand up, I notice that the ceiling is nice and warm, but it's mostly wasted, as I can't hang from the ceiling.     

So, I'm wondering how to get the nice, hot air hanging out at the top circulated around.  I do have vents in the sauna, but I'm keeping them closed, as I don't think fresh (cold) air circulating is going to help anything. 

I'm considering installing a fan at the top to blow the warm air down, but I'm not sure if fans are a good idea to put in a sauna. 

I could always build the benches up a bit higher, as I've seen that done before, but that's not really addressing the stratification issue - I'm simply raising myself up to a higher temperature area. 

So, what is the best way to address heat stratification in a sauna?
