Dennis  those numbers could be anything,   you can try above    they may be able to identify the bed by the number configuration,      so many beds were made and then private labeled it takes someone who deals with those things all day to even get started,      now  I have been able to get a good learning generic remote,  the kind that you can face to face that would read the code IF IT IS PRODUCING A CODE<

The last one has links to how to fix yourself to how to get it fixed by sending it off,    most beds are rf   because of no direct line of sight for infared      a radio turned to white noise in between stations  should  static when power is pushed if it is sending at all     at that point other buttons may make static, and then a learning remote should work just fine, but you need to know if it is even sending  before you do anything   shy of sending it to the remote doctor,
