We regularly use our sauna heater but lately it has been shutting down rather frequently.  Is their things that can be done to maintain the equipment  and if so what should be done?

By "shutting down rather frequently" do you mean it powers off or is it cycling on temperature?

If it is powering off, are you having to hit a reset button?

The manufacturers operating manual that came with the heater has a section on maintenance.

It's difficult to answer this via forum since there are many more questions about your environment, equipment, etc.

Just a suggestion, but if the heater worked well for some time and then started going off on you it could be something as simple as compacted rocks.
What happens over time is the rocks tend to settle towards the bottom and become compacted which smothers the heater and causes the hi-limit to switch off.
You might try taking all the rocks out, rinsing them off with water to get the dust off of them and then reinsert the rocks stacking gently.

The sauna heater being only a month old, you should not need to wash the rocks at this time.  In fact, chemicals should never be used to clean rocks, you can soak them in water.  But this is further down the road in years.

As Tyler says, It could be that the new rocks are packed too tightly.  You do need airflow.  Also, do you have a vent in your sauna.
Saunas require an fresh air intake vent behind the heater and an outtake vent below the upper bench.

See the attached PDF for an example of venting.
