Electric Motors/Adjustible Bed Lift Motor


Orthomatic Adjuctible Bed (OGW02 6015ST115V-69700)on Tag at head of bed.

S/N:   09162045 on Control Box

LIFT MOTOR Foot of Bed
  Make:  Duratron
  Model: MC 42 1014H   M-1894   03-2005   M0100400 REV 6

PROBLEM:  The Foot will not stay down.
         It raised itself to the Top Position while I was out
         of the house.
         When I try to lower it with the REMOTE (GW02), it
         will go ALMOST to the LOWEST LEVEL, then, it STARTS
         back UP.
         It will not Stop when I press the STOP BUTTON, it just
         keeps raising the FOOT of the bed.
         I have to Unplug the Power to get it to STOP.

You have what appears to be a bad limit switch    like a garage door      and that switch is causing the problems   it will take a new switch or maybe just an adjustment to the position of the switch but it will take a service tech to look over the switch and wiring    could be a pinched wire but it will take some serious diagnostics to figure out what is going on,  you can look under the bed and if you see a switch hanging that has wires attached  maybe it came loose  but I would be careful,   you need to get a local tech to look this over
