Thank you for purchasing your new AMEREC steam generator. If we can be of any assistance do
not hesitate to call our Service Department at 1-800-331-0349.
FOR THE SAFETY OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS TO

SECTION 1: OPERATION OF YOUR NEW AMEREC GENERATOR
Steambaths can put undue stress on the
body. Therefore a steambath should be
used only under a doctor's direction if you:
Are pregnant
Have a heart condition
Have high blood pressure
Have circulatory problems
Are under the influence of alcohol
Are under the influence of drugs
Have diabetes
Are under the care of a physician
Are in generally poor health
Children should only use the steambath
under close adult supervision.
Scald Hazard: Do Not Touch the steam
head or trim during operation as they are
HOT. Stay at least 12 inches away from the
hot steam escaping from the steam head.
It is recommended that the steambath not
be operated for more than one timer cycle
without allowing the steam bath enclosure
to cool because of the following:
1. Assure that both the power circuit and water
supply to the generator are ON.
5. Relax and enjoy the warm steam releasing tense
muscles and refreshing the entire body.
Certain construction materials may be
damaged by the higher than normal heat.
2. To activate the steam press the control on. In 10
to 20 minutes the room should be comfortable enough
to begin taking a steam bath. The unit will turn off
automatically in 30 minutes. The average time spent
taking a steam bath is approximately 10 minutes.
6. If your steam room has a shower, a pleasant
experience can be achieved by taking a warm shower
while in the steam. You will find the contrast from
water to steam quite invigorating.
A scald hazard could be presented by bath
fixtures overheating.
3. Remove clothing and jewelry.
7. Pressing the control while the steam generator is
operating will shut it off.
4. Enter the steam room and close the door to prevent
steam from escaping.
8. The R30K control does not provide automatic
temperature control. Use the on/off button to control
the temperature as desired.
SECTION 2: MAINTENANCE OF THE AK SERIES
The steam generator, steam head, fittings and plumbing connections should be inspected annually for
water leaks and damage.
The AK steam generator is equipped with a drain
valve for flushing sediments from the generator tank.
This procedure should be scheduled monthly or
more often depending on local water conditions and
steam bath usage.

FLUSHING PROCEDURE
1. The generator should be cool.
2. Turn control on.
3. Open the drain valve.
4. The unit will drain without heating the water.
5. Allow the water to run 10 minutes.
6. Close the drain valve.
Be careful when entering a steambath.
Escaping steam from an overheated steam
room may cause injury.
WARNING

OVERHEATING AND SCALDING
1. Exit immediately if uncomfortable, dizzy or sleepy. Staying too long in
a heated area is capable of causing overheating.
2. Supervise children at all times.
3. Check with a doctor before use if pregnant, diabetic, in poor health or

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this
product unless they are closely supervised at all times.
3. WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury:
a. The wet surfaces of steam enclosures may be slippery. Use care when
entering or leaving.
b. The steam head is hot. Do not touch the steam head and avoid the
steam near the steam head.
c. Prolonged use of the steam system can raise excessively the internal
human body temperature and impair the body’s ability to regulate its
internal temperature (hyperthermia). Limit your use of steam to 10 - 15
minutes until you are certain of your body’s reaction.
d. Excessive temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage
during the early months of pregnancy. Pregnant or possibly pregnant
women should consult a physician regarding correct exposure.
e. Obese persons and persons with a history of heart disease, low or high
blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or diabetes should consult
a physician before using a steambath.
f. Persons using medication should consult a physician before using a
steambath since some medication may induce drowsiness while other
medications may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation.
4. WARNING - Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body
reaches a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6
degrees F. The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal
temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting. The effect
of hyperthermia include:
a. Failure to perceive heat:
b. Failure to recognize the need to exit the steambath:
c. Unawareness of impending risk:
d. Fetal damage in pregnant women:
e. Physical inability to exit the steambath: and
