SOURCE: I have a Steamist SM-8

1) Steamist SM-8 is a Steambath steam generator with 5 year parts warranty and 2 years labor
http://www.faucetdepot.com/prod/Steamist-SM-8-IM-InstaMist-Steambath-Steam-Generator-29984.asp

2) Steamist website does not have manuals that we can immediately download and look at error codes alongside you.
http://www.steamist.com/

3) However your manual has that information, and you can add a comment and say what the manual suggests as troubleshooting, so we can offer some level of do-it-yourself help.

4) Perhaps you could scan your manual into pdf format and post your manual on your website.
And then add a comment with web location of manual so we can download and read your manual, alongside you, and perhaps offer additional do-it-yourself solution for you.
For example check that circuit breaker is delivering 240V to product, and element is not burned out, and there are no loose wires, and condensing reservoir is not clogged with sediments that can be cleaned with CLR.

5) The manual is key: I'm sure the manual also shows regular maintenance needed to ensure long life of product. For example avoid exposure to hard water, use water filter, clean reservoir and lines regularly. Avoid freezing.
I always tell people to save product manual like gold and read it cover to cover because it will save money and trouble long-run.

6) Steamist website has contact us link: With direct e-mail to 'troubleshoot' and 'literature'
I suggest next step should be contact manufacturer and request each of the following: a) a manual b) do-it-yourself assistance c) warranty information d) name of authorized technician to make repairs.

SM-79 turns on normally and operates for about 5 minutes. Enclosure temperature goes up to about 79 degrees and the unit turns off. Very hot water issues from outlet until thermostat is turned off. ...


Hi Russell.
I am going to suggest contacting Steamist since they are the experts in this product.
http://www.steamist.com/contact.htm

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.

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.
