Instructions

    Remove the Defective Air Valve

  1. 1

    Unplug the bed from your electrical socket before deflating.

  2. 2

    Locate the Quick Release Valve at the base, or foot, of your AeroBed.

  3. 3

    Locate the tab latch on your air valve. The latch wil lbe surrounded by a rim of black vinyl.

  4. 4

    Peel back the soft vinyl rim. This will expose hard black plastic.

  5. 5

    Lift this plastic, which surrounds the outer edge of the valve, towards the centre of the air valve hole.

    Install the New Air Valve

  1. 1

    Open the valve tab on the replacement air valve.

  2. 2

    Position the hinge area of the valve onto the hinge support.

  3. 3

    With both hands squeeze the softer vinyl rings that rim the air valve hole. Be sure to squeeze these rings towards the centre of the air bed opening.

  4. 4

    Shove the air bed vinyl through the opening of the new Quick Release Valve.

  5. 5

    Check the vinyl for any kinks or bulging areas by doing both a visual assessment and also by rubbing your hands over the area around the new valve.

Tips and warnings

  • Use a hair dryer on low for 20 seconds to soften the hard black plastic around the air release valve, if it does not feel pliable enough to bend or move.
  • Keep your receipts. AeroBeds will not be covered by a warranty without proof of purchase, which can only be obtained with the original receipt.
