The most important factor in selecting a sauna heater make is the merchant you are purchasing it from.  Do they have a long standing history with the brand and do they stock replacement parts.  A local service provider and warranty are also very important.

There are hundreds of horror stories of bathers trying to save money on the web and getting stuck with inoperable products from a store that disappeared a few months later.

This brand is not well represented in the united states and lacks appropriate support to be recommended.

It does sound similar to the situation with my Kohler unit.  The transformer on the circuit board is most likely the culprit.  Turn off the power and access the circuit board.  See if there is a part number on the transformer.  If you're handy with soldering, it may be a relatively easy fix.

I'm about to invest a significant amount of money on a new steam shower for my home. I got a little paranoid after talking with SteamSaunaDepot.com (I also saw them on Ripoffreport.com). They seem cheap, but when I asked if their steam generators were chintzy Chinese knock offs, they danced around the subject. I'm on a budget, but can't afford to buy crap.  The products on this site seem a bit more expensive.  What am I getting for my investment?

Can you confirm the brand of your steam generator for us please?

I have an old SM36. This is refusing to start up
The fuse is good, and red power LED on.
When I press the test button, the top green LED comes on, I have also replaced the control TC135
Any suggestions? My suspicion is a bad board.

We are certainly beyond the (fired) contractor's initial November 22 estimate of 2 - 3 weeks!  But it's coming along.

One thing that seems really interesting is the propane-fired steam generator.   This is our 4th steam room (in our 4th house - not that we own 4 houses; we leave a trail of steam rooms behind us as we sell and move), but all the others were electric.  I don't know if it's a general trend, but the electric ones (all Mr. Steam) had 3/4" steam outlets and the steam came out under a fair amount of pressure with a fair amount of noise.  This propane job (Delta brand) has an inch and 1/4" steam outlet and the steam just seems to float quietly out of the pipe.  We've only tested it a couple of times for a few minutes each time since the steam room itself is not quite done, but it looks very hopeful at this time. 

The painter almost finished today, the major thing left for the steam room itself is doors - one to the outside and one to the inside.  We may just hang some plastic over the openings because we won't be able to wait to try it out.  We're still up in the air about what to decide about doors from the meager selections available here.  Also the door openings are already very narrow and we don't want to make them any narrower than we have to.  AND the door to the outside has to be insect-proof.

About 4 years ago, I installed a 9kw Kohler steam generation unit K-1733 with the K-1647 controller.  I did an initial test and everything worked fine.  I had not used it since then as I've been waiting to install the steam doors.

I attempted to use it recently and the control unit will not turn on when I press the power button.

I verified 240V is being supplied to the generator and the unit is warm to the touch. (preheated water for the fast response).

I need to verify:

1. Is the control board generating 5VDC to the RJ12 connection?
2. Verify if I have 5VDC coming into the controller?

Any help would be appreciated!  Thank You

Has anyone had this problem and/or know how to diagnose (verify the 5VDC) output?

3/1/14 - I read some posts about all the hassles of having to pay a plumber to remove the unit and send back to the factory.  Problem seemed to be only electrical in nature so I cut the power and pulled the service panel on the generator.  Did some basic electrical checks on the PCB (printed circuit board) and removed it.  Found out the transformer was the culprit.  Replaced the transformer and the unit is ready to go Smiley   

Contact me if this is your problem.  I have a couple extra transformers to sell.

Absolutely!  There are several options on our website for sliding glass doors which are specifically fabricated for use with a steam shower environment.

A vapor proof swing (hinged) door is the most common type of door installed in a steam shower. Consider one or two side panels if more glass is desired, or the addition of a hinged top panel for effective, post-steam bath, ventilation. When considering a swing door for your environment, realize that for safety reasons, this door must always open out.
A vapor proof sliding door is less frequently installed, however, equally effective! Consider sliding doors for the generous lighting they afford, flexibility & ease of steam shower entry and convenience of post-steam bathroom ventilation. For the finishing touch, designer frame finishes and glass patterns should be selected to achieve the desired look.
