Your steam shower is one of the most important and expensive purchases that you’re going to make for your home.
As with any appliance, over the lifetime of your steam shower, you may find that it’s not working like it used to.
The good news is that there are a variety of repairs that you can potentially make on your own without having to call a repairman.
In this article, we will break down some things you can do to fix your steam shower yourself.
Step #1 – Verify That It’s Getting Power
If your steam shower isn’t producing any steam or operating at all, the first thing you should do is see if there is something wrong with the power supply.
Before doing anything, you should first test the other appliances in the home to see if they are receiving power.
If your other appliances are working normally then, the issue is probably isolated to just your steam shower.
Use a voltmeter to test the outlet that your steam shower plugs into. Next, test the steam showers power supply as well to verify that it has current.
Let’s say that you tested the electrical outlet and power supply but did not find anything wrong with them. One of the last things that you can do is check your steam shower’s circuit breaker to verify that it’s turned on and you should also check your fuses to verify that one of the fuses isn’t blown.
Step #2 – Check the Water Supply
After following the tips above, you should next check your steam showers water supply by following these tips:
- Check the water supply to ensure that it’s connected properly.
- Make sure that the water inlet valves are turned to the on position.
- Verify that the main water supply is turned on.
- Check for other water supply problems like loose fittings which could be leaking.
Step #3 – Fix the Heating Element
Is your steam shower still not producing steam? If so, the problem could have something to do with your steam showers coil or heating element. These parts should be tested by a professional and replaced if necessary.
