AW Generator - Initial Start

 

1. Before turning on power to the generator, make sure the configuration switch is set correctly (see Diagram 10).

  1. If the generator has an electronic AutoDrain installed: If the generator will use an electronic AutoDrain, verify the switch in the middle of the right hand circuit board is set as shown at left (#2 and #5 down, all other up.
  2. If the generator has only a manual drain installed: If the generator will not use an electronic AutoDrain, verify the switch in the middle of the right hand circuit board is set as shown at left (#2, #4 and #6 down, all other up.

2. Make sure the water is turned on, the drain valve is closed and the control(s) and temperature sensor are plugged in, then turn on the line voltage to power the generator.

  • Green LEDs will light on the generator’s circuit boards right away then one more will light a few seconds later.
  • If the SIMPLE is connected: 4 LEDs across the top of the control will begin blinking.
  • If the SMART is connected: About 30 seconds after turning on power, the SMART screen will light and the amerec logo will show at the bottom of the screen. A few seconds later, the SMART screen will change to a slowly spinning circle while it loads its program.
  • A few seconds after the SMART stops showing helo, the SIMPLE (if connected) control’s LEDs will start blinking and changing until it stops with the thermometer symbol lit (lower left corner) and one of the 1 – 10 LEDs will be lit.
    • If a SMART Control is not connected, go to step 3a at this point.
    • If other LEDs are lit or blinking, refer to the SIMPLE Control User’s guide and contact Technical Support if needed.
  • The SMART spinning wheel continues for about 1:30 minutes then begins normal operation. During this time, a red LED will light on the steam generator board showing that the control and circuit board are “talking” to each other.
    • Go to step 3b

3a. If only a SIMPLE Control is connected: If the SIMPLE has started properly, press the on/off key and the bath on LED will light and one of the 1 – 10 LEDs will light indicating the current temperature. The generator will fill with water and start heating the room. Press the on/off key again and the generator will stop heating.

3b. If a SMART Control is connected: If the SMART has started properly and if it has not been used before, it should guide you through the initial set-up: select the language to use, set region to North America, set the current time and time format and set the current date and date format. Then you will return to the starting menu screen. Next, go to the Tools menu and

  1. Choose Units and set to display temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit
  2. Choose Bath Temperature to set the maximum bath temp. allowed
  3. Choose Facility Type and set it to Private for normal home use. This allows a bath time of up to 1 hour. For spas and other installations where the steam room needs to be kept hot for longer periods, set the facility to Public for up to a 24 hour maximum bath time.
  4. Next go to the home screen and the display should show the current temperature Press the l key (in the upper right corner) and the key should turn green. The generator will fill with water and start heating the room. Press the 0 key (in the top left corner) and the key should turn red and the generator will stop heating.
  5. If the generator has an electronic AutoDrain installed: The generator will go through a drain cycle one hour after the bath has been turned off.

 INSTALLATION CONFIGURATION

Before turning on the liine voltage to the steamer, make sure the steamer circuit board’s switches are set correctly for the installation.

   

Switch 1: Is this a single steamer installation or a steamer in a ganged system?


Slide switch 1 up if this is a single steamer or the Primary unit in a ganged system


Slide switch 1 down if this is a second or third steamer in a ganged system

   

Switches 2-6: Is there an electronic Autodrain valve installed?


Slide switches 2 & 5 down and 3, 4 & 6 up if Autodrain is installed


Slide switches 2, 4 & 6 down and 3 & 5 up if Autodrain is not installed
(Requires manually draining and cleaning the tank periodically)
