Installation Information

CHOOSING A LOCATION In determining a location for your Health Mate Infrared Sauna, there are two important issues to keep in mind. First, the sauna should always be placed on a fairly leveled surface. Second, the sauna must be placed indoors and in a dry area. Moisture will cause damages to the interior and exterior of the sauna. Basement, attic, garage, playroom, spare bedroom, new extension and garden chalet are just a few of possible locations for your sauna. Health Mate's beautiful and simple cedar wooden exterior will compliment the interior of your house. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 1. Before using your Health Mate Infrared Sauna for the first time, clean the inside of the sauna with a damp cloth. 2. When cleaning the exterior, use furniture polish. 3. To absorb perspiration during a sauna session, we recommend placing a soft towel on the floor and on the bench of the sauna. 4. Scratches and stains on the sauna can be removed by simply using a fine grade sandpaper over the damaged area. 5. A customized Health Mate Sauna Cover is available as an accessory to all models. Use of this outdoor storage cover will not only protect the natural beauty of the sauna, but will also help in maintaining years of continuous enjoyment. 6. We recommend applying a heavy furniture polish to the outside of the sauna before putting the cover on. Use of a polish will create a barrier between the wood and the weather.

Enjoying your Health Mate Sauna

The Health Mate Infrared Sauna utilizes infrared heat. Infrared heat waves reach the body directly without having to heat the intervening air inside the sauna. With this system, breathing is more comfortable and the atmosphere inside the sauna is more enjoyable than in conventional saunas. Because the infrared heat energy is warming the body directly (and not the air, walls, and fixtures within the sauna), a lower thermostat temperature can be used to achieve the desired results.


Review all health and safety instructions. If in doubt as to the advisability of using your infrared sauna, consult with your physician. If you feel light-headed or heat-exhausted during a session, exit the sauna immediately.

1. Select the desired temperature and adjust the thermostat accordingly. 2. Allow approximately 10-15 minutes for the sauna to warm up before beginning a session. 3. Perspiration will begin within 10 to 15 minutes after stepping into the unit. We recommend that a sauna session does not exceed 30 minutes. 4. When the temperature reaches the level set on the thermostat, the heaters will turn off and on periodically to maintain the desired temperature level inside of the sauna. 5. The front window and/or ceiling vent can be opened at any time to introduce fresh air into the sauna. 6. Infrared's unique property of direct penetration into the body without heating the intervening air in-between allows sauna users to enjoy all of its benefits while the door or window of a sauna is open for ventilation. 7. Always drink plenty of water before, during, and after a sauna session. Doing so will replenish lost fluids from the body through perspiration.

8. Choosing to take a hot shower or bath prior to the sauna session will further promote perspiration. However, dry off thoroughly before going into the sauna because excessive water will stain or warp the wood. A shower after the session is refreshing and rinses perspiration from the body. 9. To absorb perspiration and keep the sauna tidy during the session, place a towel on the bench and floor of the sauna. Keep one towel handy to wipe excessive sweat from your body. 10.The interior of the Health Mate infrared sauna is made of the finest Western Canadian Red Cedar. It is very aromatic and adds to the enjoyment of your sauna session. If the fragrance of the fresh wood is too strong during the first few months of usage, wipe the wood with a damp cloth to minimize the aroma.

Tips for Use

1) To regulate the temperature inside the sauna during your session, use the roof vent or the door window (by setting it at an angle). 2) If you feel the need for more cooling, simply leave the door open until the air around you feels comfortable enough. 3) By leaving the thermostat at the highest setting, you will get continuous output from the infrared heaters in your unit. 4) Drink plenty of fluids prior to, during, and after your session. 5) If you take a hot/warm shower or bath before your sauna session, you may perspire more. Try it with and without bathing or showering first to determine which way you prefer. 6) To utilize the sauna's heat therapy effect, give your hair a hot oil treatment while in the sauna. Put oil or treatment into your hair and wrap it with towel. After the session is over, rinse your hair thoroughly. 7) Use at least 2-3 towels. Sit on one towel folded over several times for added cushioning. Put another towel on the floor to absorb extra sweat. A third towel draped over the knees may aid you in comfort and is useful to towel off sweat. 8) Be sure to towel off excess sweat during your session to help the body perspire more freely. 9) To help relieve sore and tense muscles, massage the affected areas while in sauna to help heal faster. 10) Do not put any lotions or oils on the body or face when using the sauna. This may block the pores and hinder perspiration. 11) Shaving your face or legs with a razor while profusely sweating in a sauna yields an incredibly smooth result without the use of gels or foams. 12) Do not eat anything at least an hour before your sauna session. It is better to go in the sauna on an empty stomach. You are more likely to feel uncomfortable sitting in a sauna with a full stomach. 13) To make the most out of your sauna session, work your muscles while in the sauna. Stretch your arms and legs, massage your neck, massage your feet, etc. 14) You can benefit from the relaxing and soothing effects of a regular sauna session by going to sleep afterwards. The peaceful and relaxed state rendered by a sauna session will help you sleep easier and better. 15) At the first sign of cold or flu, increasing your sauna sessions may be beneficial in boosting your immune system and decreasing the reproductive rate of the viruses. 16) Consult your physician for the proper treatment for this or any other conditions. 17) To treat your ankles and feet more effectively, you must elevate them while inside the sauna. Any area that you wish to achieve a specific deep heating effect in should be moved as close to one of the heaters as feels comfortable. 18) After the session is over, do not immediately jump into the shower. Since your body was heated up during the session, it will continue to sweat even after the heaters are off. Sit in the sauna with the door open and let the body sweat a little more while it cools off. After you feel comfortable enough, take a warm shower and finish it off with a cold shower to cool off completely.

Safety Instructions

1. Read and follow all instructions carefully. 2. When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed. 3. To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to use the sauna unless they are closely supervised at all times. 4. Do not use the sauna immediately following strenuous exercise. Wait at least 30 minutes to allow the body to cool down completely. 5. Excessive temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage during the early months of pregnancy. Pregnant or possibly pregnant women should contact their physician prior to using the sauna. 6. Hyperthermia Danger: Prolonged exposure to hot air will induce hyperthermia. Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 37C (98.6F). While hyperthermia has many health benefits, it is important not to allow your body's core temperature to rise above 103F. Symptoms of excessive hyperthermia include dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and fainting. The effects of excessive hyperthermia may include failure to perceive heat, failure to recognize the need to exit, unawareness of impending hazard, fetal damage in pregnant women, physical inability to exit the sauna, and unconsciousness. 7. The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications prior to or during the sauna session may lead to unconsciousness. 8. Persons suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or diabetes should consult a physician prior to using the sauna. 9. Persons using medications should consult a physician before using the sauna since some medications may induce drowsiness while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation. 10. Exercise care when entering or exiting the sauna. 11. Never sleep inside the sauna while the unit is in full operation. 12. Do not use any type of cleaning agents on the interior of the sauna. 13. Do not stack or store any objects on top of or inside the sauna. 14. If power supply cord becomes damaged, it must immediately be replaced by the manufacturer or its agent or a similarly qualified person to avoid a hazard. 15. Do not use the unit during an electrical storm, as there is a remote risk of shock. 16. Altering or tampering of any electrical connections on the power supply will void the manufacturer's warranty. 17. Dry your hands before handling electrical controls. Never unplug the power cord or adjust the controls with wet hands or when you have wet bare feet. A danger of electrical shock exists. 18. Do not attempt any repair without consulting the manufacturer first. Unauthorized repair attempts will void manufacturer's warranty. 19. We strongly recommend the use of a GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI) device in any potentially wet locations. 20. The HEALTH M ATE SAUNA is made of the finest Canadian Cedar. All natural wood products have variations in the color, the grain, and irregularities such as knots, and fine cracks. These characteristics are a part of the natural beauty of the wood, and in no way should be considered defective. 21. We recommend turning the sauna on for the maximum time and temperature in order to burn off any factory dust prior to using the sauna for the first time. Following this procedure will make your first sauna session a pleasurable one.

Troubleshooting Guide

Problem: RADIO/CD PLAYER IS NOT WORKING. Solution: (1) Make sure that the radio faceplate is seated properly. (2) Check the fuse behind the radio (Please refer to the radio owner's manual on how to remove it). Problem: HOUSE BREAKER/FUSE IS TRIPPING. Solution: (1) Check that the amperage of the breaker is correct for size of the sauna. (2) Make sure that the circuit is not overloaded by having too many appliances on one circuit. Problem: DIGITAL CONTROLLER DISPLAY IS SHOWING AN ERROR CODE AND WILL NOT START. Solution: (1) Unplug sauna, wait one minute, and then plug back into power source. Try the procedure 3 times. Problem: THERE IS NO POWER TO SAUNA OR CD PLAYER. Solution: (1) Check to make sure that the main power cord is plugged into the wall outlet. (2) Make sure that the house circuit breaker for that outlet is not tripped. (3) Lift open the wooden power supply cover located at the lower right corner of the front panel (as viewed from the inside). Make sure the other end of the main power cord is plugged into the male outlet on the power supply. (3) Please refer to Number (14) on page 9 for instructions on replacing the fuse. Problem: READING LIGHT IS NOT WORKING. Solution: (1) Check if the light has been manually turned off by pressing the "LAMP" button on the keypad while the sauna is turned on. (2) Disconnect the main power cord from the sauna and change the light bulb. Access the bulb by removing one or two of the lens mounting screws located at each corner of the light fixture, and then lifting off the lens. Replace the bulb in a 120-Volt sauna with a 120-Volt/60Watt bulb. 230-Volt saunas require a 230-Volt/60-Watt bulb (220-Volt or 240-Volt bulb is okay). Problem: REAR HEATERS PRODUCE NO HEAT. Solution: (1) Lift up the bench panel and check to see that the power cable from the floor panel is plugged into the male outlet on the rear panel. (2) Lift open the wooden power supply cover located at the lower right corner of the front panel. Check to make sure that the power cord coming from inside the front of the bottom panel (with male plug) is plugged into the female outlet on the power supply. Problem: BENCH HEATER PRODUCES NO HEAT. Solution: (1) Lift up the bench panel and check to see that the power cable from the floor panel is plugged into the male outlet on the rear panel. (2) Lift open the wooden power supply cover located at the lower right corner of the front panel (as viewed from the inside). Check to make sure that the power cord coming from inside the front of the bottom panel (with male plug) is plugged into the female outlet on the power supply. Problem: BENCH HEATER IS NOT AS HOT AS THE FRONT AND REAR HEATERS. Solution: (1) The bench heater is operating correctly. It is intentionally designed to produce less heat compared to the other heaters. Problem: THE CD PLAYER IS ON, BUT NO SOUND COMES FROM THE SPEAKERS. Solution: (1) Open the wooden access cover on the top of the roof, in the front left corner. Make sure both of the speaker cables are plugged into the speaker jacks correctly. (2) Refer to the instruction manual for the CD player and check to see that the volume is not turned all the way down. Problem: SOUND ONLY COMES FROM ONE SPEAKER. Solution: (1) Make sure both of the speaker cables are plugged into the speaker jacks. (2) Refer to the instruction manual for the CD player and check to see that the sound balance on the stereo is not set all the way to one side. Problem: CD IS PLAYING CORRECTLY, BUT THE RADIO DOESN'T TUNE IN STATIONS CLEARLY. Solution: (1) Extend the antenna and orient it so that the reception is clear. (2) Open the wooden access cover on the top of the roof. Make sure that the antenna cable is plugged into antenna jack as far as it will go.
