Sauna Repair

The three most popular repair issues with saunas or spas for the home are:

Sauna heater not working

If your sauna's heater is not working, what should you do? Is this something you are able to fix yourself? Well - it's hard to say. First of all, you should have some wiring knowledge. You should have some electrical knowledge. If you don't feel confident on working in a live wire environment, it might be a good idea to leave it to the professional.

On your sauna there will be a number of heating elements. This is for an infrared sauna. The elements are what produces heat from the sauna. If there is a problem with heat distribution, or not enough heat, then it will be with the heating elements. The heating elements require electricity to run properly. There will be relays to each element (wiring relays), also there would be fuses in the circuit. And there would be a fusebox.

Most handymen or those who have had experience with wiring can use a multimeter, or process of elimination to determine where the problem is happening in the circuit. Blown fuses, bad relays or issues within the switchbox are more then likely the culprit.

Faulty thermostat

Faulty thermostat again comes back to wiring problems. Also - it may be cheaper to replace the thermostat, if the part is readily available. All depends on how recently you purchased your sauna. This is where purchasing with a warranty really is important (of course). Hate to drill that home but it's always something to consider as replacement thermostats are generally covered under warranty. In any case, thermostat issues are generally wiring. IF you must take it upon yourself to "do it yourself," then we hope you know what you're doing. You can use a multimeter to examine the circuit and see where the problem lies. It could be a loose connection.

In terms of having your sauna repaired, it is always a lovely thing to have it repaired in the home, if at all possible. If you cannot have the sauna repaired as is in the home, then you have to take it completely apart in some cases and move it to a shop location or other. This is a hassle and for many people it is either impossible or very difficult.
