Air Won't Come Out of My AeroBed

If air will not come out of an inflated AeroBed mattress, this is a malfunction of the Quick Release Valve. Consumers can order these valves and follow simple instructions to remove the faulty valve and replace it with a new one.

Remove the Defective Air Valve

Step 1

Unplug the bed from your electrical outlet before deflating.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Install the New Air Valve

Step 1

Open the valve tab on the replacement air valve.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 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.
