The following pictures are for your reference. The dISCOVER and eMPOWER models have additional steps. Please review before assembling your sauna.

1. INSTALLING THE FEET

Install screw through wooden feet into designated holes on the bottom of the floor panel. The small feet go towards the back of the sauna (back side has the serial number).

2. PLACING THE FLOOR PANEL

Place floor panel on a smooth flat surface. Vent opening and stickers indicate back side of sauna base. Before proceeding, double check that the base location is in its final position. Make sure the base is level to avoid any parts becoming misaligned (shims can be placed under furniture feet if surface is not level). Leave enough room around your sauna to plug in the power cord and for any maintenance once it is assembled.

Remove power control covers before proceeding to next step. After connections are made and sauna powers on properly, screw covers back in place.

WARNING:

Heater grate must be installed prior to stepping on the floor.

Power Control Cover

*Make a note of the serial number for keypad setup and future use - see page 6.

3. PLACE THE BACK PANEL

Begin by removing the small wooden wiring covers at the bottom of each panel before you assemble the wall panels.

(A) Place the back panel into the groove in base. Center its location with the raised area on interior floor. One person should hold the wall while the other person continues to the next step.

4. CONNECTING THE RIGHT SIDE PANEL

While the rear panel is being held in position, place the right panel into the grooved base and gently raise into position. The magnet system will help to pull the panels together.

(B) Place the C shaped piece of stainless steel (C clip) into the groove on top of the panels to further hold them together. Once the C clip is installed correctly, you can let go of the panels.

A

B

NOTE: You may want to remove the heater covers prior to installing wall panels to keep them from falling out as the walls are being moved. REMEMBER THE CORRECT

LOCATION TO REATTACH.

9

10

5. CONNECTING THE FRONT PANEL

Place the front panel into the groove on the front of the base. DO NOT lift by the thin horizontal pieces that become the top and bottom of the door frame.

The top of the door frame has a hole that should slide onto a dowel which protrudes from the top of the left wall.

Pay careful attention to the power cords, making sure they are safely out of the way.

(C) Place C clips into grooves on top panels to secure the walls together.

C

6. CONNECT THE LEFT SIDE PANEL

Place the left panel into the grooved base at a slight angle and gradually bring to vertical position until magnets click into place - making sure you do not hold on to glass when doing so. A dowel protrudes from the left wall that must be slipped into a hole in the front wall.

(D) Once wall is in place, place

C clips into the two remaining grooves on the panels’ top corners.

D

7.

MAKE THE HEATER CONNECTIONS

Remove small covers at the bottom of each wall. Make all connections for all four walls (each wall will have three heater connections, front wall will have two additional connections). Make sure to match connectors, and that each connection is secure. Put all electrical covers back in place.

WALL COVER WALL CONNECTIONS ADDITIONAL FRONT WALL

CONNECTIONS

See above that each connection should match - clear to clear, white to white.

After connections are made and sauna powers on properly, reattach covers back in place.

8. INSTALL THE BENCH

*If you purchsed the Acoustic Resonance Therapy accessory, refer to A.R.T. manual at this time: http://www.sunlighten.com/ART-Manual

First, remove the magnetic heater covers on side and back walls to install the bench. Then slide bench on side rails until it sits in the grooves. Be careful not to scratch the side panels while installing the bench. Replace heater covers.

Additional steps for dISCOVER and eMPOWER models on next page.

11

ADDITIONAL STEPS FOR DISCOVER: Install longer full frame bench against the wall opposite to the control panel. The second bench interlocks with the first bench.

ADDITIONAL STEPS FOR EMPOWER: - First install the bench along the back wall of the sauna (the largest bench section). Next install the smaller interlocking right wall bench. The left wall bench will be installed in a similar manner to the right wall bench.

Finally the L-Bracket support arm should be placed under the bench. Using the hex key tighten the bolts through the support and fasten the support to the wall.

9. PLACE THE ROOF PANEL

NOTE: Before putting the roof in place, ensure wires are accessible from the top of the front wall (3 wires should be visible). Using a screwdriver or drill, remove front right dust cover on top of the roof to access light connections.

Lower the roof panel onto the assembled sides. The roof grooves should fit over the wall panels. The side with the speakers and lights should be facing down, and speakers should be over the bench. Make sure that electrical connections in the roof do not get pinched between roof and walls during installation.

12

Make speaker and light connections.

Replace dust covers on top of the roof panel.

After the roof of the sauna is securely in place, one person will hold up the front of the roof while the the other feeds through the wires to the top of the unit. There is a 2-pin connector and a screw type barrel connector.

d. Before installing bottom hinge, readjust door so 1/8”-1/4” of glass is on the inside of the bottom hinge. The gap should be even around the entire door. Lightly tighten bottom screw.

e. Lightly tighten the remaining 2 hinge screws, just enough to hold door in place. Lift up on the door, then tighten screws. f

f. Close door to ensure it lines up properly. Tighten or loosen hinges as needed.

ADDITIONAL STEPS FOR DISCOVER: The corner sauna has an additional screw at the end of the door frame to prevent the frame from contacting the door.

1 1 . I N S TA L L T H E D O O R H A N D L E

Align two handles and gasket on either side of the glass door with pre-drilled holes. Ensure gasket material is located between the handle and the door on both sides of the glass. Then screw them together using the hex tool.

You may eliminate the plastic spacers inside the handle if they do not fit.

1 2 . P L U G G I N G I N T H E M A I N P O W E R C A B L E

Connect the main power cord at the lower rear area of the floor panel to

your outlet. Make sure plug is FULLY inserted!

The sauna should be on a true dedicated circuit that runs from the wall

outlet to the breaker box with its own switch in the breaker box and nothing else

on that line. Plugging your sauna into your wall outlet with any other electrical

device is not a true dedicated outlet and will hinder the sauna’s ability to warm up

properly.

Turn sauna on and test wall heaters to ensure each one is warming up after a couple of minutes. If a heater is not warming up, refer to step 7 to check connections.

WARM UP TIME AND USAGE GUIDELINES

Our saunas are based on the infrared wavelength and not cabin temperature.

Set to the desired temperature and allow the sauna to warm up for 30-45 minutes. The sauna heats up at an average of 1 degree per minute. Follow these steps for proper warm up:

Step 1: Make sure your sauna is plugged into a dedicated outlet installed by your electrician.

Step 2: Set to the desired temperature and set time to 60 minutes.

Step 3: When turning sauna on for the first time, ensure each heater is warming up after a couple of minutes. If they are not, make sure connections are securely connected.

NOTE: If your sauna is outside or in an unheated garage, sun room, basement or patio, you may require additional time to warm the sauna up depending upon the temperature of the surrounding surface & room. Keep in mind you are required to have an authorized Sunlighten cover over your sauna if it is outside or exposed to the weather in order to maintain your warranty.

MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR OPTIMAL USE:

Clean the heat sink annually

We suggest using compressed air to clean out any dust from the heat sink at the rear of the sauna base once a year.

Cleaning the LCD screen

Use only cleaners approved for use on LCD screens.

Static build up

We suggest unplugging your sauna for an hour every six months to help avoid static build up inside the controls.

S A U N A P R O T O C O L

Follow this quick guide for the optimal sauna experience.

P R E S A U N A S E S S I O N

• Hydrate with at least 8 oz. of water to prepare your body for an increase in core temperature.

• Pre-heat for approx. 30 minutes. Depending on room temperature, your sauna will heat up a degree per minute.

• Use Bamboo Carbon Towels to absorb sweat during sessions.

S A U N A S E S S I O N S

• Begin your session when your sauna reaches 100°F.

• The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°F.

• To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 10-15 minute sessions at 100°F every other day.

• Gradually increase towards 40 minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range.*

• Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions.

Sweating will increase with regular use, removing toxins and leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

• For added intensity, use Pure Sweat amplifying cream to increase sweating, circulation and to boost results. Post Sauna Session

P O S T S A U N A S E S S I O N

• Drink at least 24 oz. of water or electrolyte to rehydrate.

• Dry off with Bamboo Carbon Towel. Cool down naturally or with a refreshing shower.

• Every six months, clean wood and glass with our Natural Sauna

Cleaning Kit. Available at store.sunlighten.com.

*Listen to your body. Be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feel symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms during your sauna session, discontinue use immediately. If these symptoms continue, consult your physician.

H E A LT H & S A F E T Y

Our infrared saunas operate with the same efficacy in your home as in a medical facility. Like all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Drinking an electrolyte-replacing water or a sports drink is strongly recommended before and after use.

Important Safeguards

• Never sleep inside the sauna while it is on

• Do not use harsh cleaning agents on the interior of the sauna

• Do not stack or store objects on top of or inside the sauna

• Do not use during an electrical storm, as there is a remote risk of shock

• Altering or tampering with any electrical connections on the power supply is dangerous and will void the warranty

• Do not attempt a repair without consulting Sunlighten first. Unauthorized repair attempts will void the warranty

Precautions

If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

• Medications

• Children

• Elderly

• Chronic conditions / diseases associated with reduced ability to sweat or perspire

• Hemophiliacs / individuals prone to bleeding

• Cardiovascular conditions

• Pacemaker / defibrillator

• Alcohol/alcohol abuse

• Fever

• Sensitivity to heat

• Pregnancy

• Joint Injury

• Implants

F R E Q U E N T LY A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S

A S S E M B LY

Can I assembly my sauna outdoors?

Yes, if you protect it with a Sunlighten canvas sauna cover. If you place your sauna outdoors without a Sunlighten cover, your warranty will be void. The sauna covers are custom made and may not arrive until after you receive your sauna. Do not install your

sauna outdoors prior to receiving your cover. Doing so will void the warranty! Check the sauna cover annually for normal wear and replace as needed.

How much room is required around my sauna for set up and maintenance?

We recommend 4-12 inches of clearance around the back, sides and top of the sauna to access plugs and for general maintenance. Leave at least 4 inches behind the unit to allow the electronics to cool.

What surfaces can I set my sauna on?

You can set your sauna on tile, concrete, carpet, laminate or wood. Remember to make sure that your sauna is level regardless of its location for optimal use. If your sauna is placed outdoors , make sure there is adequate drainage so that water cannot pool around the base of the sauna. If placed near or on cool surfaces (like concrete and basement walls), warm-up can be impacted.

How do I install Chromotherapy and Acoustic Resonance Therapy?

Sauna accessories have separate user manuals. Refer to the appropriate manual: http://www.sunlighten.com/ART-Manual or http://www.sunlighten.com/Chromo-Manual

U S A G E

How long does it take for my sauna to warm up?

The controls are preset to 60 minutes at 150°F. However, the inside cabin temperature is not intended to reach this. Our saunas are based on the infrared wavelength and not cabin temperature. Allow the sauna to warm up for 30-45 minutes. The sauna heats up at an average of 1 degree per minute. If located outside or in unheated garage, additional warm up time may be required. If you prefer the sauna hotter, let it warm up longer.

Can I use my sauna every day?

For most people, daily sauna use is okay after your body has become accustomed to infrared therapy. Drink increased amounts of water to stay hydrated. Listen to your body and stop your session if you feel any discomfort.

How long can I use it for each day?

40 minutes is the recommended session length. See the sauna protocol on page 27.

What is the best temperature to use my sauna?

First, it is important to understand that health benefits are a result of efficient infrared emissivity, not air temperature. Sunlighten saunas are 95-99% emissive and deliver the highest concentration of infrared. With that, the optimal sauna experience occurs between

100-130°F. During your first few sessions, start at a lower temperature of 100°F and gradually increase in later sessions. Everyone has different preferences and tolerances for heat. The most important thing is to listen to your body. Keep in mind, if you’re sweating at 115°F you’re getting the same benefits as if you’re sweating at 150°F.

What is the micron range of the heaters?

The sauna emits a variable micron range between 0.8 & 30 microns depending on the setting.

Can I touch the heaters?

While using, the heaters are safe to lean on with heater cover intact. Do not touch the bare heater surface when the heaters are on, or have recently been on.

What is the heater made of?

Solocarbon full spectrum heaters are designed with multiple layers of distinct components including organic black carbon and LED arrays that independently offer near, mid and far infrared heat.

How much will the sauna cost to run a month?

The sauna runs on the same wattage as a blow dryer and will cost very little to run monthly: typically 15 to 35 cents per hour. This varies with model and your local utility cost. Your utility company can help you understand a more exact per hour cost if needed.

Are the EMF levels safe?

Yes. Patented Solocarbon® panels are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten to ensure the safety and effectiveness of each individual heater. Our proprietary heater design reduces EMF and steel conduit electrical shielding making your sauna as safe as possible.

What is the wattage, voltage, and amps of my sauna?

See electrical specifications on page 4.

Why do you recommend using Bamboo Carbon towels?

Bamboo Carbon towels will make your sauna experience more comfortable and will keep the sauna clean. Bamboo Carbon is anti-fungal and deodorizing, emits infrared rays and is highly absorbent. Use on the bench, floor and backrests for optimum comfort and cleanliness. Bamboo Carbon towels can be purchased at store.sunlighten.com.

How do I clean my sauna?

Sunlighten’s Natural Sauna Cleaner is made specifically for use with your sauna. At least every six months, dampen a cloth with Sunlighten All Natural Wood Cleaner. Clean glass door and windows with Sunlighten All Natural Glass Cleaner. You may dust the outside of the sauna with a dry dust cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners on your sauna. Light sandpaper can be used to treat stains on the inside of the sauna. Sunlighten Natural

Sauna Cleaning Kit can be purchased at store.sunlighten.com.

How do I care for the heater fabric?

The heater fabric remains as a covering over the heater panels. This is to protect the heater surfaces from any scratches, etc. It is also there to prevent physical contact between the skin and the heaters as the sauna is being used. To clean, wipe fabric with slightly damp cloth. We recommend doing so at least once every six months. Only do so when sauna is turned off.

Is it normal to see cracks in the wood?

Yes, wood is a living material that continues to respond to climate conditions, even after being manufactured into a sauna. During normal operation, wood may crack slightly due to changes in moisture level. These cracks may appear or disappear with the changing seasons, but will not affect the structural integrity of the sauna. Our saunas are shipped around the globe, and can experience slight blemishes, scratches, or scuffs from the transit of this sauna. In most cases these blemishes on the exterior of the room can be concealed by using a small amount of furniture polish, oil, or other furniture treatment. The interior blemishes, scratches, or scuffs can be either left alone, sanded, or combination of gluing and sanding. Please avoid any treatment containing, benzene, or a high concentration of alcohol. However, if you detect major cracking or damage that jeopardizes the functionality of your sauna, please submit pictures to www.sunlighten.com/support.

ISSUE

An electrical component is not working after assembling

S O L U T I O N

Check all connections - see pg. 11. A newly assembled unit with a nonfunctioning electrical component (control panel, heater panels, lights, speakers) will most likely have a missed or loose connection.

Sauna does not power ON

First, be sure to hold the Power button for 10 seconds to turn on. Confirm that the voltage & amperage coming from the outlet is correct for your model (see pg. 4). Check that the outlet is on a dedicated circuit.

Once voltage is verified at the outlet, check the voltage at these three points:

1. Exterior power cord before the receptacle in the base. If there is no voltage the exterior power cord needs to be replaced.

2. If the exterior power cord is getting voltage check the voltage going to the receptacle (to check, unscrew the 2 screws holding the receptacle to the base. If there is no voltage reading at the receptacle, then the receptacle needs to be replaced.

3. If voltage is going to the receptacle, check the voltage at the interior power cord going to the power control box (PCB). If voltage is still reading there the issue is most likely a faulty PCB. If there is no voltage reading at the interior power cord, the interior power cord needs to be replaced.

Slow warm up time

Ensure each wall panel is heating and that you have the CORRECT electrical specs on a DEDICATED CIRCUIT - see pg 4. Check that the temperature and time is turned all the way up. If those are correct:

1. Check if the breaker switch is tripped on the back right corner of the

(PCB). If the breaker is tripped, simply push the button of the breaker switch back in to fix this issue. If the breaker switch keeps tripping, then replace the breaker switch for the PCB.

2. If the problem still arises, replace the PCB.

Check that all connections are made at the base and corresponding panel - see pg. 11.

Heat is not coming from all walls

Feedback from speakers (highpitched buzz) when using sound from media apps

The control panel is connected to the speakers through the stereo. If the stereo volume is turned up past 25, it will cause a high-pitched interference through the speakers. Turn stereo volume down to 25 or lower. Adjust volume through the media app on the control panel.

Stereo won’t accept

CD

On the top of the stereo there is a yellow sticker pointing to two shipping screws that need to be removed. Once removed, the CD will be taken correctly.

A.R.T. doesn’t work The Fader setting (front/back balance) must be adjusted in the stereo.

Diagnostic Result Codes

No errors detected.

The Control Panel cannot communicate with the Power Control Box.

After unplugging your sauna, remake the connection of the computer cable(RS232) at the bottom of your front wall and the left side of the power box. If the issue persists you can check the connection at the back of the control panel.

The serial number you entered during sauna setup does not match the power control box that came with your sauna. Please go to Settings to re-enter your serial number. The serial number will start with:

P1 (Aspire), P2 (Believe), P3 (Conquer), P4 (Discover) P6 (Empower)

The sauna you purchased is designed to use 120 or 240 volts of electricity. The voltage you have supplied is too low or too high. Double check your circuit to ensure that all parts installed are correct. This error encourages optimal performance and protects the sauna from damage.

Temperature sensors monitor and regulate each heater to optimize your sauna session. The response time on a sensor is slower than expected. You will still be able to enjoy your sauna if this issue appears.

The 13 digit Binary code refers to individual temperature sensors, while looking at the unit:

111 000 00 00 000 – The back wall Lower/Middle/Upper zone

000 111 00 00 000 – The right wall Lower/Middle/Upper zone

000 000 11 00 000 – The front wall Lower/Upper zone

000 000 00 11 000 – The floor heater Back/Unused

000 000 00 00 111 – The left wall Lower/Middle/Upper zone

Sections that are all ‘1’ will indicate a disconnected wire at the power box. Individual ‘1’s indicate the sensor is not responding.

One of the heater control units that provide your dynamic function is not responding. These are located in the power box, which will need to be replaced.

Your lighting control unit is not responding. The primary cause of this issue is a loose connection to your lighting control box. Check the flat

4 wire connector that is between your main power control box and the lighting control box.
