TC 130 controller would not turn on unit. I purchased a new controller TC135 snd connected it via the telehpone like plugs and it still doesnt work. How do I test the unit itself, is the wire bad?

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.

Turn on steam in shower, but no steam comes out


So many things could be wrong. 1 check circuit breaker. 2. Check there is water going to steam unit. Power to control in shower? Steam unit could be burned out. Or control is not working or thermostat not working.

E6 Display on the control unit


You posted question under Steamist:

Sample Steamist manual says:
"Error messages E4, E5 and E6 indicate a communication problem with the steam generator. If this error occurs, check both ends of the control cable for clean, dry and secure connections.
Dirty contacts can be cleaned with alcohol and a cotton swab or a toothbrush. This can also happen if the control is not sealed and the cable connections get wet."

Error codes change as technology changes, and sample manual may not include your model:

My SM11 model Steamist was installed above our shower/steam room. It is 2 years old. While in use recently, it made a loud sound like a low-pitch popping sound or low boom. Imagine somebody inside a...


The heating elements had burned up in the unit therefor creating a dead short on that circuit. Main breakers on homes and buildings are VERY sensitive and will sometimes trip before the smaller branch cicuit breakers will . So the popping you heard was the heating elements breaking down inside the unit it can be some what noisy.

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.

Error code Prr on Mr. Steam control unit. Steam generator starts for about 10 seconds, but no steam comes out and error code "Prr" shows on control unit. Any insights?


I had this problem, and checked the connections, emptied the resivour, and refilled it, and it had no effect.
To fix the problem, I ran the regular shower on hot for 10 minutes to warm up the shower chamber. Then, when I pressed the power button on the steam shower, it displayed "110" as normal.
The problem with "Prr" appears to be that the temp sensor is reporting a value out of range. Heating the shower chamber (and therefore sensor) provides a good value to the sensor, which then allows the shower to operate.
Try warming up your sensor by running the shower.
