Question about Therabath Pro Paraffin Wax Arthritic Arthritis Bath ()

1 Answer

I need a manual for the Parabath paraffin unit that I have for releaving the pain in my arthritic hands. Medicare has rented this machine for me from Suncoast Medical Supply Co, Inc. in Bradenton Fl. and they sent me an old one that has March 27, 1995 on the bottom. There is`no grid in the bottom of it and no manual for instructions. They have been very uncooperative.

    Therabath stopped working


    So I opened up mine as it had stopped working and saw that there are two thermostat switches on the underneath. When the temperature heats up, the thermostat switches are supposed to open up. but at room temperature they should be close which means if you put a check for continuity across the terminals it should be a short ckt. The 05 NGT thermostat was fine. the 03 NGT 54N thermostat is definitely blown. I am trying to see if I can get a replacement part from NGT Controls. Not much circuitry in there but two thermostat switches. Hope this helps.

    Maytag front loader 2000 series code LF followed instructions in manual and has no power. Outlet works


    Hi, is this a new washing machine? If not, then these Maytag front loading washing machines use a paraffin locking switch in the front panel to lock the door during operation. Now, if the switch has gone south and trip the the lock switch without locking the door. Then the washing machine want turn on.

    What is a parfin locking switch work is a small container with paraffin (wax) in it with a heater. When the washing machine is turn on. The control board indicate that the machine is in operation and a small amount of current is applied to the paraffin switch to the heating element. This make the parfin to expand trip the locking mechanism and locking door during operation. Keep the door lock from accidental openings. It will take about 4 minute after the washing machine has quite it running operation to open the front loader door. The paraffin needs to cool down to release the locking mechanism. stewbison

    Need instructions on how to use Dr. Scholl's Thermal Therapy Quick Heat Paraffin Bath -- how long to leave hands/feet in melted wax, how long to leave wax on, what to do after removing wax any...


    How to fill your Dr. Scholl's Thermal Therapy Quick Heat Paraffin Bath1. Take the lid off your bath container and remove all packing materials.2. Place the unit on a flat, heat-resistant surface.3. Remove the plastic rack.4. Remove all three blocks of paraffin wax from the plastic wrapping. Each block is equal to one pound of paraffin wax, and three pounds of paraffin wax are needed to begin using your Paraffin Bath. Break each block in half, then in half again.5. Place the blocks of paraffin wax in the Paraffin Bath container.6. Plug the unit into an electrical outlet. The green light will glow. The red "Heater" light will initially come on and then cycle on and off while the wax is melting.7. Replace the lid and turn the switch to the "high" position. The paraffin wax will be ready for use when it is visibly melted (approximately 120 minutes).8. As soon as paraffin wax has melted, place the plastic rack on the bottom of the heating chamber. This will protect hands, elbows, and feet from heat.9. Turn the dial to the "Keep Warm" setting and wait 25 minutes before dipping hands, elbows, or feet.
    Warning: DO NOT place hand or any other body part inside the chamber while the unit is melting the wax.
    How to Dip Hands1. Remove jewelry, roll up sleeves, and thoroughly wash and dry hands. You can also rub in some of your favorite hand lotion.NOTE: The lid should be on during the time the unit is heating. Put the lid back on the unit after each use.2. Put a small amount of wax on the inside of your wrist to test the temperature.3. Spread fingers apart slightly and slowly immerse your hand in the paraffin wax container. Then immediately, but gently, remove your hand from the Paraffin Bath chamber. Let the paraffin wax solidify on your hand. Wait at least three seconds (until the paraffin wax no longer appears shiny) before redipping. Be careful to avoid touching the sides or the bottom of the Paraffin Bath chamber.4. Continue to dip your hand in and out of the paraffin wax, following Step 3, to build up layers of paraffin wax. For the best results, do this at least five times. The more layers, the longer the heat will last.5. If desired, cover your hands with glove liners and place your hands in the insulated mitts. These retain heat for better results.6. Remove the hand mitts from your hand. Remove the plastic glove and discard. Peel the hardened paraffin wax from your hands. It is recommended that the hardened paraffin wax be discarded.7. Massage in the oils left on your hand after the paraffin wax is peeled off to get the full invigorating and rejuvenating benefits of your Paraffin Bath.NOTE: Allow the paraffin to remain in place for 10-15 minutes before removing; longer if more layers exist or if the mitt has been used previously.
    To Treat Feet or ElbowsFollow steps 1-4 as outlined for hands. Mitts are intended for use with hands only.
    Product Care and Maintenance Place paraffin bath in a safe, cool and dry place when not in use. Wipe with a soft, damp cloth. DO NOT use abrasive cleaner. Never submerge the unit in any liquid. Keep away form all solvents and harsh detergents. DO NOT attempt to repair this paraffin bath. There are no user-serviceable parts.
    STORAGEWhen not in use, "unplug it."Allow appliance to cool and store out of reach of children in a safe, dry location. To protect from dust or dirt, simply store in its original box. Never wrap the cord around the appliance since this will cause the cord to wear prematurely and break. Handle cord carefully for longer life and avoid jerking, twisting or straining, especially at plug connections.
    CLEANING INSTRUCTIONSRemove plastic rack from heating chamber.1. DO NOT unplug the Paraffin Bath. Allow paraffin wax to remain undisturbed for a few minutes.2. Turn unit off and let the paraffin wax "harden."3. Right before cleaning, turn the unit on again until the paraffin wax is visibly melted around the entire edge (approximately 3-5 minutes), then turn unit off and unplug from the electrical outlet.4. Spread an ample amount of paper towels on a hard, flat, heat-resistant work surface and slowly turn the unit upside down to allow the hardened paraffin wax to drip from the chamber onto the paper towels. Allow the surface of the paraffin wax block to harden and then discard it. To clean the empty chamber, wipe with paper towels to remove any sediment.5. To clean the outside of the unit, remove any solidified paraffin wax.6. DO NOT use sharp objects to remove solidified paraffin max.7. DO NOT scratch or damage the Paraffin Bath chamber.8. DO NOT use abrasives when cleaning the Paraffin Bath chamber as it will damage the finish.9. If you discard the paraffin wax after each use, we recommend you clean out the unit completely every 40 uses. If you re-use the paraffin wax after every use, we recommend you clean out the unit completely every 20 uses.
    PLEASE NOTE: This appliance should not be used in the presence of open cuts or wounds, inflammatory skin conditions, growth peripheral vascular disease where circulation is impaired, acute inflammation, or where sensation of the extremity is reduced or absent. If there is any question about peripheral vascular disease or decreased sensation of the extremities, consult a physician or physical therapist before using the Dr. Scholl's Thermal Therapy Quick Heat Paraffin Bath. Discontinue use if dermatitis due to paraffin sensitivity occurs. Discontinue use if wax feels too hot or cool, which could indicate health problems with the user.
    There are also a bunch of standard warnings about dealing with electric appliances. Take care of them, don't dump them in water, etc., etc., etc.
    It's worth pointing out that paraffin wax is flammable.

    I have a paraffin wax machine, I just need to know if after the wax melts do u put the dial on keep warm before u put your hands in.


    Hello Dear

    No Never keep the machine ON when you soak ur hands in paraffin wax. Keep the dial OFF position.
    To keep the paraffin warm switch off the fan or AC of the room. It will not get stuff earlier.

    regards
