Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Steam sauna (mr Steam ms400tc1). Unit fills up then allows water to exit via steam head without heating up to steam. Unit should stop water entering heating tank when full, heat up to steam, then allow to exit via steam outlet. Water level is detected by level probe. Probe and pcb have been returned to manufacturer but I've been told there is no fault with them.

If that unit has a steam valve I'd suggest checking it to ensure it's not stuck open. If it is, the steamer will not build pressure also. Should be a gauge for tank pressure that will show if it has built up pressure. If the valve is stuck open, it may certainly just dump water instead of steam. It's possible the water level sensors are allowing too much water into the tank, and as a safety it dumps. I've changed steam valves quite often due to the amount of heat they have to deal with.

SOURCE: no heating from Mr slim

P8 refers to outdoor protection device activation usually caused by low gas charge or blocked condenser coil. any good a/c company can resolve this for you. however please note that if it is gas related a pressure test must be carried out to determine where that potential leak may be and that can be very costly.

regards

SOURCE: My shark steam mop heats up but won't steam. help

Problem: mineral dleposits. Just fixed mine.... DO THIS OUTDOORS. Add 1/2 c CLR to the tank, let sit for an hour, turn on, allow to heat and pump. May have to refill with CLR and repeat. Be persistent, and eventually you'll blow out a wad of dissovled minerals followed, happily, by billows of steam. Again, do this outdoors and keep the mop pointed away from people, plants and things. (I aimed mine into a cardboard box.) Follow up with a couple of tanks of water and pump until empty to clean out any residual CLR and loosened deposits. (I continued to get some black precipitate through the first water cleaning.) I will add that I began this process first with white vinegar, then with Lime Away..no luck put perhaps I was not sufficiently persistent. Or perhaps it was the sequence of attempts. (Also, do not take off the mop head...the part to which you attach the pads...it's tough to get off, does not allow access to parts that need cleaning (thought it would, not not so), and practically impossible to get back on.)
Alternatively, call Shark...they'll offer to repair for $18 plus $10+/- shipping, or may offer you a new one at "preferred customer" rate of $39.95 plus shipping. Good luck, and please remember to try the CLR outside.

SOURCE: I have a portable air conditioner and the water

I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

Mr Steam MS Super-1 kW: 10 doesn't generate steam


the first thing the generator should do when you hit the on button is fill. You will hear the water entering the tank. Once the water stops it indicates that the water has reached the water satisfied level, after which you should hear a loud click(your contactor engaging for the heat cycle, newer units will have all three light on the side lit). After this point is you aren't getting any steam after 5 minutes it probably means your heating element may be damaged. It would be best to remove the element at this point from the left side of the unit via 6 bolts and 2 wire leads. Any physical damage on the element such as a pinhole pop, burn mark, melting, or scar will surely prevent the element from heating

I have the Mr Steam MS Super 1 T steam unit with the Tempo Plus accessories and auto flush. The unit has worked great for about 2 years but for some reason yesterday the unit light comes on at the...


You would need a multi-meter or voltmeter to trace the power path. Turn on the generator and wait until you hear the water feed solenoid stop. This means the water has reached the satisfied level and the pc board should have sent 24v to engage the contactor. On the actual pc board there is a section label "cont" which is what sends the 24v to the contactor the engage the heating element. Verify that you have 24v on the spade terminals going out to the contactor, if not then you may have a pc board issue. Second possibility is the contactor, if it is recieving 24v and it is not engaging then it's simply a bad contactor. Check the load side of the contactors with the blue wires. Lastly if these two steps check ok, then perform an ohm reading with a multimeter on the actual heating element(with the power off, put your two test leads on the two flathead screws that hold down the blue leads the go to the heating element). If you get an open reading then this may indicate a failed heating element. Pulling the heating element out on the left side panel will confirm any element failure.

Water Leaks from the head gasket while heating up to use steam


This is a result of the water temperature in the boiler increasing, thereby expelling water that may remain in the lines out of their respective exit points. A solution may be to place a container under the group head to catch the water, or opening the steam valve partially to allow the water to exit through the steam wand (again placing a vessel/cup/pitcher there to catch the water). This is a problem that even higher end (dual-boiler) models have, due to the necessary purging of water that accumulates in the steam wand during down-time.
Don't look at it as a problem, but simply as a quirk that single-boiler machines have. If you are still irked by the issue, consider buying an inexpensive manual frother (Bodum makes these) to froth and heat your milk (in the microwave after frothing) separately. An added plus is that you can do this while you make your espresso, so if you make primarily milk-based drinks (latte, capps etc.) you'll save on time.
