Question about Toys

Open Question

I can't find an electronics repairer who can repair or replace a motherboard from an electric bed operating system ?

I've removed the motors pod, which is quite straightforward, and found that the motherboard has four solenoids on it, one for each direction of the two motors. They spark inside (seen through their opaque plastic covers) and only work intermittently. They need changing or I need a new motherboard. Unfortunately they're soldered in. I can't find any company who list the motherboard as a spare part. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. BRS

First off, is the motherboard actually the problem? If your motherboard has failed, the screen may come on and you may have some sort of raster (brightness) but thats as far as you get. Power supply failure is (in my experience) more common than mother board failures (usually) and may exhibit the same symtoms. Also a bad battery on the motherboard will cause funky things to happen on boot. (clock not right/failure to recgonize hard drives, etc). If you are certain a motherboard is a fault you should replace it ( unless you are VERY fluent in soldering/desoldering surface mounted components and component level repair and have a solid understaning of digital and D.C. circuits) More often than not, replacing the entier motherboard is cheaper and less of a hassle.

The cooktop has to be examined for failure of the element or the switch. Some of the switches & some of the elements are still around. Have the elements checked for continunity. You will have to take it out of the counter and take the unit apart to do this.

SOURCE: How to replace Ice Door Solenoid

I got help from , and didn't see any reference to a solenoid. I fixed my GE fridge, its model is #TFX27FJB,,,,Free!!!! The replacement part would have cost 46.60.

On inside of freezer door, behind ice dispenser, there is a panel about 7x9
(plastic) that you can gently pull the tabs free and remove the panel. You will see the mechanical stuff. There are 2 gear like (pulleys) that are in the center area,supposed to be connected by a part that is about 3-5 inches long , like a small wire cable with hook type ends, think it's called "lanyard cable" , mine was broken, so I patched it with some scrap wire,,,one end hooked to one pulley and the other to other pulley(gear). When my ice door quit closing after getting ice,this cable had broken, What I did was find a small wire, to fix the break,, using as much of the original cable as possible, make sure that total length is same as original. Hook one end to one pulley and wrap it around it, it has to be wrapped a certain way, I can't remember counter-clock wise or vise-verso, till it will take up all slack, and just reach and hook to the other. I think it is a spring that opens door, and then the gears turn to close it, that is why it has to be wrapped with no slack.
It cost nothing and it works great now,, the will show you specs so you can see what you are doing.
I didn't want my food to thaw, so I had a large piece of Styrofoam that I cut to fit in door jam, to keep food safe.
Good Luck
Hope this helps.

For how long will my adjustable bed last?

Adjustable beds are built to last for many years, and most of the problems can probably be repaired. Most of the adjustable beds have lifetime warranty (depend on the brand).

Can't get the motor off to replace it, how do I remove the motor?

You take rear wheels off, then remove the rear axle.
There are 2 black hinge pins that hold the dump bed on. You need to remove those to get access to the motors.

Tempur-pedic remote control does not work have put in fresh batteries - control lights up- but no bed movement Please advise Thank You Carol

If the solution posted by Susan R. (below) fails to work, locate the black power down box under the bed. Check the battery compartment and remove all batteries. If batteries are installed they will prevent a full reset of the box. Unplug the power cord, wait 45 seconds and plug the power cord back in to reset the electronic components. Replace batteries. Now that the error has been wiped from the box's memory, you can now synchronize your remote with the power down box using Susan's instructions below. - Mike V., Antioch, CA

"Locate the power down box for the bed and press the "learn button" for 1 second and release (Black box under the bed). On the hand control, simultaneously press and hold the position 1 and off buttons. The transmission indicator light will flash slowly and then flash rapidly. Continue to hold for 5 seconds and then release the buttons. It should now work! Enjoy. Susan R., Paducah, KY"

For further assistance, refer to the user manual that came with your TEMPUR® Advanced Ergo System™ or you can download it here.
For phone assistance please contact a Leggett and Platt representative at 800-888-3078. Leggett and Platt is the manufacturer of the adjustable bed and remote components for Tempurpedic.
