if applicable, before attempting to use the equipment. Otherwise, injury or damage may result.


•      Do not use bed outdoors.
•      Do not use bed near explosives.
•      Using bed with oxygen administering equipment other than the nasal masked type creates a possible fire hazard.
•      When using nasal or masked type administering equipment, route and secure oxygen or air tubing properly to ensure that tubing does not become entangled or damaged during normal operation of the bed.
•      Use caution when having liquids in or around the bed to ensure no spilling occurs. In case of spillage, stand in a dry, clean area of the floor and unplug the bed immediately. Clean up spill and allow the area around bed to dry thoroughly before using the electric controls again. Do not eat or drink hot liquids while operating the bed.
•      This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instructions concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
•      Do not allow any person or pet under the bed at any time.
•      During bed operation, make sure body is positioned within the confines of the bed. Do not place extremities over the sides of the bed when operating bed functions.


Do not open or tamper with control box, motors, or remote (except for battery compartments). The warranty will be void if the internal workings of these components are tampered with.

Product Rating

The motors are not designed to operate continuously for more than [2] minutes in an [18] minute time period or approximately 10% duty cycle. Attempting to circumvent or exceed this rating will shorten the life expectancy of the foundation and may void the warranty.

Operating Information

•      After the power foundation assembly is completed, operate remote control to ensure proper functions.
•      Keep moving parts free of obstruction during bed operation (including sheets, clothing, tubing, wiring, and products using electric power cords).
•     Evenly distribute body weight over bed surface. Do not place entire weight on head or foot sections of the bed, during re-positioning and entering or exiting bed. 

Hospital Use Disclaimer

This power foundation is designed for residential use only. It is not approved for hospital use and does not comply with hospital standards.

Weight Limits

This product is not rated to support weights more than 340 KG inclusive of the mattress and bedding. The bed will structurally support this weight, provided it is evenly distributed across the foundation. The power foundation is not designed to support or lift this amount in the head or foot sections alone. Exceeding this weight restriction could damage the bed and/or cause injury and will void the warranty.

Headboard Bracket Installation Guide

Headboard brackets are an optional accessory and are not included.
A 1/2'' (13 mm) socket and 1/2'' (13 mm) crescent wrench are necessary to complete installation.



The headboard bracket will have 2 long slots to accommodate any frame type. Align the appropriate slots on the bracket with the holes on the bed. Use long bolts and nuts to secure the bracket. Make sure the bolts are tight.


To put the T-Bracket and Headboard Bracket together, you will need (2) short bolts and (2) nuts. Thread the bolts through the holes from T-Bracket to Headboard Bracket with the head of bolt facing outward. Use 1/2'' (13mm) socket and 1/2'' (13mm) wrench to tighten the bolts.


Connect your headboard to the attachment plates using the remaining short bolts and nuts to secure it to the brackets. The heads of the bolts will face outward. Use a 1/2" (13 mm) socket and 1/2" (13 mm) wrench to tighten the bolts.


In the event of per failure the foundation fails to operate, assess the symptoms and possible solutions provided in the table below.

Remote control illuminates and appears to be operable, but will not activate bed.

Program the remote control (see the setting programmable positions and pairing remote section of this manual for programming procedures).

Unplug the power cord, wait 30 seconds and plug back to reset electronic components.

The surge protection device or the electrical outlet may be defective.

Test the outlet by plugging in another working appliance.

Verify that the connector on the wired remote control is securely attached to the control box.

Press the lift buttons squarely and accurately.

Wireless remote control may be experiencing common Radio Frequency Interference from other radio transmitting devices. Wait several seconds, and then try pressing appropriate button again, See FCC Compliance Statement on page 1 of this guide.

Excessive massage motor noise.

If the bed is located on hard surface flooring, place carpet pieces or rubber pieces (not included) under each leg.

Using the wireless remote control, elevate the head, foot or neck section a short distance to realign the lift/lower mechanisms with the bed support platform.

Verify that your Power Foundation is not positioned against a wall, nightstand, or other object that may cause the vibration or noise.

If the Power Foundation is installed over a bed frame, verify that the massage motors are not causing the bed frame (or bed frame components) to vibrate.

Verify that the headboard attachment hardware is properly tightened (if used).

A clicking noise is heard under the bed when raising or lowering.

This is normal. The lift motor relays “click” when they are engaged.

No action is required.
