I bought a used infrared sauna that worked perfectly. I disassembled

This answer was rated:

I bought a used infrared sauna that worked perfectly. I disassembled it, brought it home and snapped it back together. Now when I plug it in the red power light comes on but nothing else happens. Everything seems to be controlled by a white box on the sauna roof. The radio turns on but nothing else will. There is no manufacturer name anywhere so I suspect its a Chinese unit. Help!

I really need the answer to my problem.

Hi, welcome to JustAnswer.

When you disassembled the unit did you take any wires apart?

Hello,


 


No, I just unplugged at the plugs and connected them back up. I aslso checked at the box on the roof to make sure all the plugs were in tight.

Okay. It is possible that one of the pins in the "molex" connectors (plastic wire connectors) came loose. Disconnect the molex connectors and use a small pair of needle nose pliers to be sure that none of the pins are slipping back and forth. If they are all secure then this is going to require someone on site that is familliar with electronics and home electrical systems. At that point this will not be a do it yourself project Im sorry to say.

Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.
If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and after you rate my service you may ask any followup questions you like. All at no additional charge.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Best, Smitty
