Question about Steamist Steam Bath 4.5/6 KW Unit SM46
Unit is about 6 yrs. old. After 10 minutes, unit is not producing steam. We turn unit off, and water pours out the safety valve, flooding the floor. What is the problem? We have 2 units--one in each bathroom--both are doing the same thing. SHould the unit produce steam in 10 minutes?

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 .

I am going to suggest contacting Steamist since they are the experts in this product.
My understanding is Steamist has 5 year parts warranty, and 3 year labor warranty, which is good warranty.
It seems you have passed the warranty period, and 16 years is a good run for any type device.
The contact e-mails includes 'literature' so you can order a manual, 'troubleshoot' so can get directions from the folks who make the product, and email for sales manager.
I would also inquire about authorized service center, and ask what is likelihood of getting long-term repair vrs buying another unit.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
