Question about Saunacore Standard 105Kw 525 Cubic Ft Home Sauna Heater ( Kw 105 Std ) ()

Open Question

I turned on my sauna core heater for the first time last night. The heat display showed 19 degrees F. The heater came that is the element was red and the rocks were heating but element faded out after 5 minutes. I could not get the dial display on heater control that is outside the sauna to increase to the desired temperature that I wanted. How do I increase the temperature using the dial heater control. There is a push button for minutes, one for heat and stop/ start button.

Heat pump not keeping up to set temperature on thermostat but never drops below 63 degrees whens its 20 degrees outside.


It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.

Sauna wont get hot enough


When I'm in a traditional sauna like this, I expect the temperature to be between 70 and 90C so that's what I assume you are trying to reach. There could be several reasons for this so make sure each point is checked:
1. Stating the obvious, to increase the temperature inside the sauna, you'll have to ladle water onto the hot sauna stones.
2. Maybe the insulation within your sauna isn't good enough and heat is escaping.
3. Your sauna room could be too big for this heater to heat properly.
4. Maybe the element on the heater isn't performing properly and needs to be replaced.

These were some pointers which Di Vapor gave as possible reasons for lack of heat.

What is a sauna?


"A sauna is a small room or house designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions, or an establishment with one or more of these and auxiliary facilities.
A sauna session can be a social affair in which the participants disrobe and sit or recline in temperatures typically between 70 degrees C (158 degrees F) and 100 degrees C (212 degrees F). This induces relaxation and promotes sweating.
Saunas can be divided into two basic styles: conventional saunas that warm the air or infrared saunas that warm objects. Infrared saunas may use various materials in their heating area such as charcoal, active carbon fibers, and other materials."

Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

Turned on new heater last night, according to instructions. It was on high all night and never got above 56 degrees.


We need a little more information:

When you say 'never got about 56 degrees'--
are you saying the heater never got about 56 degrees?-
or the room it was in, did not get above 56 degrees?

Can you hold your hand on the heater?-- is it hot, or is only lukewarm?

Are the indicator lights on the heater indicating that you have power, and the heater is working? (Or trying to heat the room, at least?)

What other sources of heat do you have for the room-- and how cold is it outside?

Tell us more--

The controls of electric water heaters are designed so that at no time are both the top and bottom heating elements energized. Nearly all electric water heaters of this capacity in the US & Canada (other places, too) operate on 240 Volts.

When the water in the tank is below the set point of the thermostat (in your case - 120 degrees), the top heating element is expected to be on - (unless there is an issue with the top thermostat or limit switch). The top most control is the "high temperature limit". It is identified by the reset button on it. Make sure this isn't tripped by depressing the button. If it clicks - it was tripped and should start to make hot water at this point. If not tripped, you should check for the presence of 240 Volts between the heating element terminal screws. Do not measure from ground to a terminal screw and believe 120 Volts is "good". To make heat, you need 240 Volts - not 120 Volts measured across the terminals - not to ground. The amount of heat created running at 120 Volts is only 1/4 of what it will do at the correct voltage.

If you don't measure 240 Volts on the top element, check the bottom element in the same manner described for the top element.

If unable to measure 240 volts on any element, either there is a problem with the power source (blown fuse or circuit breaker), high temp limit switch, or thermostat(s).

If 240 Volts is present on either heating element, and water is not warm / hot in 30 minutes or so, a defective heating element is suspect. You can change controls without draining a tank, but replacing elements will require draining the tank first. Do not power the water heater without first filling it.

You can read a very detailed "how to" article about checking water heaters here.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

KW9B model, power to unit but no heat when timer


Heaters are pretty simple: when timer is on, voltage is applied to the heater elements until timer turns off. To troubleshoot your problem, use a multimeter or circuit tester to check the terminal connections on the heating elements themselves. With the timer ON, you should be able to read voltage (120 or 240, depending on your heater) at those connections. If you don't check the continuity of the wiring from your timer to your heater. Continuity w/out voltage at the element indicates a faulty timer, no continuity means bad wiring. If you do read voltage at the element but it isn't heating, your element is burnt out -- time to replace it. If it's a newly assembled setup or seems odd to be burnt out for some other reason, double check that you're using the correct voltage for that particular heater... 120vac won't run a heater rated at 240vac.
