Question about Steamist SM-79 7900

Open Question

I have a Steamist SM-79 steam generator for a shower. It stopped working recently so I purchased a new controllerTC 135, and it still doesnt go on via the new controller. Does anybody know how to test the unit itself or my wire.

If the unit is new, there is likely a problem in the generator it connects to. Since this is all a proprietary interconnection it is unlikely you can find any way to test the parts individually.

Hi Jerry,

Most likely your problem is that the heating elements are burnt out... the water runs through but it is not being heated to turn it to steam....
To check it out for sure some testing should be done on the elements to see if they have continuity. and OHM meter can be used to do this.
There also looks like there is a circuit board with relays that could be a problem, but if you are hearing it kick in then I think the relays are pulling in but the heating elements are bad...

Do I need to install a water softner before installing sm-79


you should not have to, but if the steamist is not gernerating the right amount of steam then you should put a sofftner on. you will be able to tell because it might have a hard time producing steam, but don't jump the gun right away.

Our Steamist steam shower is probably a few years


That is a main problem with the analog systems. Just not reliable as the new digital systems. To my best knowledge there is only one manufacturer making the 100% digital steam generators.
