Control wont turn "On"
(Control light off)
KT60, K60, K30, R30K
& R30i Controls
Note: Control Cables must be
correctly plugged in
before
power is turned on.
Improper power supplied.
or
Control improperly connected.
or
“PCA” printed circuit assembly is faulty.
or
Control cable is faulty.
or
Control is faulty.
1. a. Make sure circuit breaker is “ON” and that 208V/240V is supplied.
b. Using a voltmeter, check the voltage across the two fuses on the
“PCA”printed circuit assembly. Voltage should be 208V/240V when
measured fuse to fuse on left ends and fuse to fuse on right ends. fuse
on left ends and fuse to fuse on right ends. If proper voltage is present
across left ends but not right ends, one or more fuse is blown.
c. Turn off Power to generator. Check fuses on the PCA. If the fuse(s)
are blown, replace with 100mA SLO-Blow (F1) or 1A FAST-Blow (F2) If
the fuse(s) blows again - Call Steam Technical Support.
2. a. Turn off Power to generator.
b. Check control(s) installed per Section 6. Re-apply power and test
operation.
3. Replace PCA printed circuit assembly - Call Steam Technical Support.
4. Replace control cable - Call Steam Technical Support.
5. Replace the control - Call Steam Technical Support.
1. Follow preceding “ACTION TO BE TAKEN” steps 1. thru 2.
2. Turn off Power to generator.. Check to make sure hub cable is plugged
into Pca J9 port labeled “Wireless Hub” and Hub is mounted within
communication range of Dock & Remote Control (See Hub Mounting
instructions) located in the K200i Control Installation & Owners Manual
for AK & 3K Generators.
Turn on power to generator, wait 3 minutes for communication to be
established. If Red “X” is no longer present, communication has been
established. Test for proper operation.
3. Replace Hub cable.
4. See K200i Control Installation & Owners Manual for AK & 3K
Generators (Section 4 RF Hub Mounting)
5. Call Steam Technical Support
Improper power supplied
or
Hub or Hub Cable not properly connected.
or
Hub cable is faulty.
or
K200i Communication System has
experienced “Communication
Interference”
or
K200i Communication System is faulty.
K200i Remote will not turn
“SteamBath On"
Remote
“On” Icon
selected
and
Remote displays Red “X”
(over
5mins.)
and
K200i Dock will not turn
“SteamBath On” Dock On/Off
button pushed. Dock light
comes “On” while button
pushed but light does not begin
blinking within 5 minutes after
button is realeased.
1. Turn off power to generator. If the water stops, go to step 3.
2. a. Remove the water solenoid valve, disassemble, clean, re-assemble,
and check for proper operation.
b. Replace water solenoid valve - Call Steam Technical Support.
3. Replace the “PCA” printed circuit assembly - Call Steam Technical
Support.
Water solenoid valve is stuck open
or
“PCA” printed circuit assembly is faulty.
Control “Off”
Water won’t shut off and runs
out steam head.
1. Check that the blue & white wires are properly attached to the water
level probe. Blue wire attaches to the shortest level probe, white to the
highest probes.
2. Remove the blue wire from the water level (shortest) probe.
Momentarily ground the blue probe wire to the steamer chassis and listen
for a click. If the click noise is heard and the water valve shuts off, clean or
replace the water level probe.
Note: Also inspect the tank and baffle area for potential cleaning. Call
Steam Technical Support.
3. If the click is not heard replace the “PCA” printed circuit
assembly. Call Steam Technical Support.
Connection between the blue water level
probe wire and the water level probe is
faulty.
or
Water Level Probes may need cleaning..
or
Tank and Baffle may be clogged with scale
and need cleaning.
or
“PCA” printed circuit assembly is faulty
Control “On”
Water won’t shut off and runs
out steam head.
1. Check that drain valve is installed on the drain outlet and in the closed
position.
2. Check that electric Auto drain valve is installed on the drain outlet.
and valve wires are connected to drain terminal block on PCA in steam.
3. Check for 208V/240V to electric drain valve from PCA.
4. If voltage is not present then Call Steam Technical Support.
Control “On”
Water won’t shut off and runs
out drain.
Drain valve not installed or not closed.
or
Auto drain valve not closing.
1. Check for proper water supply (Supply valve “On”).
Note: Drain valve must be closed to allow tank to remain full.
2. Remove the blue wire from the level probe. If the unit fills clean or
replace the level probe.
3. Turn power off to generator.
4. At the water valve solenoid, slide back the blue connector enough to
get the voltmeter probes on the solenoid terminals. Turn power &
control back on. Measure the voltage across the solenoid terminals. If it
is not 208V/240V, replace the printed circuit assembly. If 208V/240V is
found proceed with steps 4 & 5.
5. Remove the water solenoid valve; disassemble, clean, reassemble,
and check for proper operation.
6. Replace the water solenoid valve - Call Steam Technical Support.
No water supplied (turned off )
or
Plugged water solenoid valve
or
Water solenoid valve is faulty
or
“PCA” printed circuit assembly is faulty
or
Level probe is faulty.
Control “On”
