ADVISORY

  

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION 
CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT. 

PLEASE SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. 

As with all electrical products, the misuse of this product or failure  
to properly follow the instructions may cause overheating, fire, or  
personal injury.  

1.

Be sure the main control unit is used only on an AC supply current
circuit of 100-240 AC volts. Do not use with an extension cord.  

2.

It is recommended to use a surge protection device (not included) 
between the main control unit and the outlet. Failure to use a surge 
protector could cause product malfunction in the event of an electrical 
surge.

3.

Do not use with damaged cords. Do not remove, trap, fold, cross or 
pinch any wires or cords.  

4.

The main control unit should be placed on a dry, firm floor, in a well-
ventilated place, free from surrounding fabric. Clearance of at least one 
(1) foot should be left on all sides.  Do not cover the main heater unit. 

5.

Do not use the heat/cool feature of this bed with an infant, a child, an 
incapacitated person, a paraplegic, a quadriplegic, or if you are 
insensitive to heat or cool. Keep all pets away from the main control 
unit and wiring. This appliance is not intended for use by persons 
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental 
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have 
been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance 
by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised 
to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.  

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  
DANGER

 — To reduce the risk of electric shock:  

x

Always unplug the MCU from the electrical outlet before cleaning.  

x

Keep the cord away from the heated surfaces.  

x

Do not use outdoors.

TROUBLESHOOTING

  

Fault Codes 

The main control unit (MCU) is designed with a set of pre-programmed fault 
codes to aid in troubleshooting. If fault codes appear on the screen, please take 
note of what is displayed. Follow the next steps:  

1.

 Turn the MCU “OFF” by using the switch on the back of the MCU 
housing. Wait 30 seconds, then turn the MCU “ON”.  

2.

 Turn the bed on to HIGH HEAT for 10 minutes.  

3.

 If no error code is present, the issue is resolved. If the same or new error 
code appears, ensure that all connections are made and repeat steps 1 and 2.  

4.

 If the error code(s) remain, please contact customer service. You can 
always access the latest technical information at www.gentherm.com/ccss.
