Handling procedures for return shipments (RMA) - Details for all returns ! ..........12
Dear Customer,
You have purchased a high quality technical
system which will provide you with many years of enjoyable sauna bathing. This sauna
heating system was constructed in accordance with state-of-the-art European safety
standards, inspected and manufactured in
accordance with the Quality Standard DIN
EN ISO 9001:2000.
This detailed installation and user‘s guide was
created for your information. Please note
especially the important information and the
data dealing with the electrical connection.
We wish you a richly invigorating and restorative sauna bathing experience.
First of all, check whether the sauna system
has arrived at your site undamaged. Register
transport damage claims immediately with
the delivering transport company or please
consult the supplier who provided the equipment to you.
Intended use
This sauna heater is exclusively designed
for the heating of sauna cabins, in connection with an appropriate control unit.
Any use apart from the defined application
shall be regarded as non-intended use. Adherence to the conventional operating, maintenance and servicing conditions is also part
of the intended use.
The manufacturer cannot be made responsible for deviating alterations undertaken on
the authority of the user and any consequential damage. The risk for such measures
shall be borne solely by the person carrying
out the alterations and causing the damage.
Sauna heaters, with the exception of those used for household purposes, must be
equipped with a safety device vis-à-vis the
cover per DIN EN 60335-2-53.
As suitable measure, and depending on the
sauna heater, a rocker switch Type I or Type
II may be installed above the heater.
For installation and electrical connection of
the rocker switch follow the installation instructions supplied with this part.
General notes
Please note that an optimal sauna climate
can be reached only when the cabin, with
its air intake and exhaust, the sauna heating
unit and the control unit have been tuned for
compatibility with one another.
Please note all data and information provided
by your sauna supplier.
The sauna heating units warm your sauna
cabin through means of heated convection
currents. To this end, fresh air from the air
intake vent is drawn in, rises upon warming
(convection) and is then circulated through
the cabin. A part of the used air is pushed out
through the exhaust vent in the cabin. This is
the means by which the typical sauna climate
develops, reaching characteristic temperatures of about 110° C directly under the ceiling
of your sauna, which fall off to about 30-40°C
in the floor area due to the temperature gradient in the sauna cabin. Therefore, it is not
unusual when, for example, temperatures of
110°C prevail in the area of the temperature
sensor over the oven, while the thermometer,
which is installed 20-25 cm under the cabin
ceiling on the sauna wall, registers only 85°
C. With a temperature setting at maximum,
the mean bathing temperature lies between
80°C and 90°C in the area of the upper recliner bench.
Please note that the highest temperature values in the cabin always develop in the area
above the sauna heating unit and that the
temperature sensor and safety limiter must
be installed in this area in accordance with
the control unit installation guide.
At the initial heating, you may notice a slight
odor arising from evaporation of substances
from the manufacturing process. Air out your
cabin after this cycle before you begin with
the sauna bath
(The rocker switch is not included in the delivery scope of the sauna heater.)
air intake and exhaust vents must not be
closed. Please observe the information
provided by your sauna cabin supplier.
Important notes
If assembled incorrectly, the system will present a fire hazard.
Please read this installation guide thoroughly. It is especially important to consider applicable dimensions and observe
the following instructions:
• This device has not been designed for
being used by persons (including children)
that are physically or mentally handicapped or have sensory disabilities. Moreover,
it is not allowed to use this device without
sufficient experience and/or knowledge,
unless these persons will be supervised
by persons responsible for their security
or in case they have been instructed how
to use this device.
• Children are to be supervised in order to
make sure that they do not play with this
The installation and connection of the
sauna heating unit, control unit and
other electrical equipment must be accomplished only by an expert. In this regard it is especially important to meet the
required safety precautions in accordance
with VDE 0100 v. §49 DA/6 and VDE 0100
part 703/2006-2.
• The sauna heating and control units may
be installed only in sauna cabins made of
suitable, low resin and untreated material
(for example: Nordic pine)
• Only a sauna oven with the appropriate
heating capacity may be installed in the
sauna cabin (see Table 2).
• For the adjustment and control of the sauna heating unit, one of the control units
mentioned later must be used. This control unit must be attached to a suitable location on the outer wall of the cabin, the
associated sensor housings in the interior
of the sauna cabin in accordance with the
installation guide which accompanies the
control units.
Caution: Covering and improperly
filled stone receptacles present a fire
Make certain that no objects have
been placed on the sauna heating
unit before each start-up.
Caution: High temperatures on the
heating unit during operation can
cause burns on contact.
• The sauna heating unit is not intended for
installation or placement in a niche under
the bench or under a roof slope.
• Do not start up operation of the sauna heating unit with air intake vents closed.
• The cabin lighting with corresponding mounting must be of a type that it is
splash-proof and able to withstand a surrounding temperature of 140° C. Therefore, only a VDE-certified sauna lamp of 40
W maximum may be installed for use with
the sauna oven.
• There should always be a provision for air
intake and exhaust vents in every sauna
cabin. The air intake vents must always
be aligned behind the sauna heating unit,
ca. 5 to 10 cm above the floor. Please use
the minimum dimensions of the air intake
and exhaust vents listed in Table 1.
• The exhaust vents must always be placed
towards the sauna heating unit diagonally
in the rear sauna wall, lower area. The
The sauna system (sauna heating
unit, control unit and lighting etc.)
may be hard-wired to the power source only by a locally certified electrician.
All connecting lines laid on the inside of
the cabin must be made of silicone and
be able to withstand a surrounding temperature of at least 170°C. If single-wired
cables are used as connecting lines, they
must be protected by flexible metal tubing.
The minimum diameter of the connecting
line and the suitable cabin size in proportion to the power supply capacity are listed
in the table.
• During the installation of the sauna heating unit, make certain that the vertical
clearance between the upper edge of the
sauna heating unit and the sauna ceiling
is sufficient . The horizontal (lateral) clearance between the sauna heating unit and
the cabin wall is provided in the dimension
diagram of the respective sauna heating
unit. The required distance between the
lower edge of the sauna heating unit and
the floor is also provided by the dimension
diagram. In case of floor-standing ovens,
the distance is determined by the base.
• Fundamentally, it is important to make
sure that the sauna heating unit is not
placed on a floor that consists of an easily
flammable material (wood, synthetic flooring or similar material). Ceramic tiles or
similar materials are practical in the area
of the sauna.
• Underfloor heating in a sauna leads to increased surface temperature of the floor.
• The distance between the oven safety
grid or recliner bench and other flammable materials and the sauna heating unit
are provided in the dimensional data of the
respective sauna heating unit. The safety
grid height must be approximately equal
to the frontal height of the sauna heating
By cleaning of parts with sharp edges
or corners the appropriate personal
protection measures against potential injuries should be taken.
• The sauna heaters should be secured
against overturning during installation on
Electrical connection
Your electrician will be able to accomplish
this work without further explanation in accordance with the provided wiring schematic and with the help of the circuit diagram
mounted inside the respective control unit.
Be sure to note, however, that live wires
should not be visibly laid onto the inner cabin
walls due to safety considerations. For this
reason, the wall element with the air intake
vent is already equipped with cable conduits
in most sauna cabins
Should there be no cable conduits in your
cabin, drill an hole in the cabin wall immediately adjacent to the sauna heating unit
where the cable projects from the sauna heating unit and pull the cable through this hole
towards the exterior and then to the control
unit. The cable as well as all other connecting lines (supply wire to the power source
and to the cabin lighting) on the outside wall
of the cabin should also be protected from
damage, for ex. by installation in cable conduits or by covering with wooden skirting
The sauna heater, if used with remote control*, may be used only in combination with
the appropriate cover protection system or
S-Guard system.
*Remote control – means settings, switching, control and adjustment of the sauna
control unit by means of commands transmitted from a remote location beyond sight
distance using telecommunication, wire- or
wireless signal transmission systems, network and similar systems.
Dear customer,
according to the valid regulations, the
electrical connection of the sauna heater
and the control box has to be carried out
through the specialist of an authorized
electric shop.

Sauna stones
Maintenance and care
The sauna stone is a natural product.
Check the sauna stones at regular intervals.
Strong infusion concentrates especially can
weaken the sauna stones and cause them to
disintegrate over time. Consult your sauna
supplier if necessary.
All sauna heating units are made of lowcorrosion material. Still, to enjoy your sauna heating unit for a long time, you should
maintain and care for the unit. To this end,
always make sure that the vents and reflection plating in the area of air intake are
free of objects. These can easily become
clogged with fuzz and dust when drawing in
fresh air. This reduces the air convection in
the sauna heating unit and can be a cause
of unacceptable temperatures.
Thoroughly clean the sauna stones provided
under running water and then place them in
the stone receptacle so that the convection
air current can circulate easily between the
stones (Illust. 9 + 10).
The number of stones is adequate to create a steam burst, vaporizing about 10 cl of
water per m³ cabin volume. Always wait 10
minutes after infusion before repeating the
infusion. Only then are the sauna stones
sufficiently hot.
Never add more infusion agents or volatile
oils than instructed on the packaging. Never
use alcohol or undiluted concentrates. Caution! Fire hazard!
Clean or de-scale the units when needed.
Refer to your sauna supplier or directly to
the manufacturing plant in case of defects or
signs of wear and tear.
Only use original manufacturer‘s replacement parts, which can be obtained from your
supplier or directly from the manufacturer.
If you do not use your sauna for a significant period of time, always check before
next use that cloths, cleansers or other
objects have not been placed on the sauna heating unit or the vaporizer before
turning them on.
Please be sure to note!
Do not stack the stones in layers; stack them
loosely instead, leaving as many spaces as
possible to allow the rising hot air to circulate.
Remove stones from the sauna heater
only when they are cooled off.
For the installation of sauna heaters, please
pay attention to the DIN VDE 0100 part 703 !
This standard makes the following statement valid
in your newest expenditure, since February 2006,
paragraph 703.412.05; Quotation:
The additional must be planned for all electric circuits of the Sauna by one or more fault current
protection device (RCDs) with a calculation difference stream not more largely than 30 mA, excluded of it is Saunaheating.
The EN 60335-1 DIN VDE 0700 part 1 of January
2001 states the following in paragraph 13; quote:
The leakage current may not exceed the following
values during operation:
- for stationary heaters of protection class I 0,75
mA; or 0,75 mA each kW input of the appliance,
depending on the higher value, at a maximum value of 5 mA.
If the appliance is equipped with a protective device for leakage current (ELCB), please pay attention to the fact that no other electrical units will be
protected by this ELCB.
Under current manufacturing methods, it is not yet
possible to produce tubular heating elements for
sauna heaters which do not attract moisture on
each end from the surrounding air. It is also possible that moisture from the surrounding air has
been concentrated in the magnesium-oxide filling
in the heating elements during transport or storage and is now causing the ELCB to be triggered.
In this case, the oven must be heated up under
supervision of an expert, during which the PE conductor is not connected. After about 10 minutes,
when moisture has evaporated from the heating
elements , the oven must be reconnected to the
PE conductor!
If the sauna heater is not in use for a significant
period of time, we recommend running it every 6
weeks, so as to avoid moisture concentrating in
the heating elements.
Therefore, should the ELCB be triggered during
start-up, the electrical installation must be checked.
Installation of the sauna heater and control unit
may be undertaken only by an authorized electrician. Without documentation of such installation, a
warranty is fundamentally invalid.
The warranty is provided according to the
legal regulations at present.
