When your adjustable bed stops working, don’t worry! Most adjustable bed problems can be solved with a simple fix and a logical explanation. To get you back to restful nights and maximum comfort, we discuss some common problems and how to fix them below.

Check all of the bed’s wiring. 

It may seem like an obvious first step, but do a thorough check to make sure everything is plugged in properly. Check areas like the wall circuit, and any wiring on the physical bed. Random household factors like pets, children, and daily housekeeping can sometimes disrupt the security of the wires. 

The important areas to check are the control box, and any wiring on the bed base to make sure everything is plugged in where it should be. 

Child safety locks. 

Some adjustable beds have a child safety lock to prevent kids from accidentally activating the bed. It is a relatively common occurrence for people with young families or grandchildren running around. As a second step, it is definitely worth looking into. 

Depending on the brand of your bed, the control switches can usually be found on the remote or box that controls the adjustable base. Consult your instruction manual to determine which buttons will do the trick! 

Astray bedding. 

The movement of the adjustable base can be disrupted by loose sheets or quilts that get nudged into a joint. Check to make sure there isn’t a stray sheet lodged or stuck in any moveable part of the bed. Be careful when removing anything you may find, and seek help if it looks like a jam that is beyond your power. Ripping a sheet out with force can cause worse damage to the bed, personal injury, or cost you a timely repair that prevents you from a good night’s sleep in the immediate future. 

A faulty outlet or wire.  

Sometimes a circuit in your home’s electrical wiring shorts out, causing the problem. Try using a different outlet nearby to see if it works. It is also possible that the bed’s wiring is faulty and needs to be replaced. If your bed is under warranty, most retailers will replace the parts free of charge. 

The remote. 

In many cases, the remote is the problem. Check to make sure the batteries are installed correctly, or still have enough juice in them to function. Sometimes the issue is a faulty or old battery that prevents the remote from working. Don’t forget, there is also the possibility that the child safety feature has been triggered by the remote.
