How to Reset a Massage Chair?

Follow these 6 simple steps to reset the massage chair settings.

Step 1. Unplug the Chair 

Unplugging the massage chair is the first step in resetting it.

This is an important safety precaution as it ensures that no electricity is flowing through the massage chair.

This prevents any malfunctions or shocks that could occur during the resetting process.

Step 2. Wait for 30 Seconds

The second step in resetting a massage chair is to wait for 30 seconds after unplugging it. This is a very important step, as it gives the massage chair time to reset itself.

Waiting for 30 seconds allows the massage chair’s internal computer system to clear any currently stored settings and prepare for a new reset.

Step 3. Plug the Chair Back

Now that you have waited for 30 seconds, it is time to plug the chair back in. It is important to take care when re-connecting the power cable and make sure not to overload your massage chair with too much electricity.

Overloading can cause damage and create additional malfunctions, so it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s power requirements when plugging in your massage chair.

Step 4. Turning the Chair On 

The fourth step in resetting a massage chair is to turn the chair on. This is an important step, as it allows the massage chair to properly reset itself and ensure that it is functioning correctly.

When turning the chair on, it is important to first check the power switch and make sure that it is in the “on” position.

Additionally, make sure to unplug all other components of the massage chair, such as remote controls, footrests, and any other accessories connected to the machine, before beginning. 

By following these steps, you can successfully turn on your massage chair and ensure a successful reset of all its components.
