4 Reasons Why Sleep number bed losing air (With Solutions)
Before fixing issues in your sleep number bed, first, know what is causing your sleep number bed to lose air.
Reason 1: Poor Hose Connection
The main reason why your sleep number bed loses its air is that there can be a poor connection between the air chamber and the pump.
Because a pump is the only thing that keeps the sleep number bed inflated.
And if there is a poor connection between the hose of the air chamber and the pump then that is the reason for air loss in the sleep number bed.
So locate the hose of your sleep number bed, look on the sides of your mattress and give them a gentle tug.
And after a gentle tug, if you feel that hoses are moving around a lot then the connection is not secure and your bed is losing air from that area.

Reason 2: Leak in Air Chamber
This is can be the worst and less likely situation if your sleep number bed is losing air.
Because sleep number beds are just like air mattresses which have air chambers and can also get punctured.
But this scenario is less likely because the sleep number bed has durable and strong air chambers and can’t get leak easily.
Solution For Air Leaks in Sleep number bed
So for finding leaks in the air chambers of the sleep number bed, inflate the bed up to 15 points or higher than you normally keep.
And remove its sheets, covers, remove all removable things then you can see grey air chambers and a firmness control system.
Now move your hands gently on every area of the air chamber and firmness control system and notice if there is air coming out or not.

Reason 3: Firmness Control System is Out of Sync
For making the firmness control system in sync you need to follow certain steps.
The firmness control system is nothing but a monitor for firmness level to make the mattress remains in desired settings.
First set your desired firmness level and check whether the firmness control system got unplugged or reset for any reason,
And if yes, then there may be a leak.
If the pump is set correctly then here is how you can re-sync the system.
Solution for Firmness Control System out of Sync
Make sure your bed is plugged into a functional outlet.
Now find the “hip” button on the sides of your mattress, you can find the “hip” button containing the sleep number logo.
But make sure the bed is plugged otherwise the “hip” button will not light up.
Now make sure the power cord and black wire connecting the base to the pump are properly plugged in.
Now press and hold down the “hip” button until it starts to blink after pressing “continue” and set the bed to the desired firmness.
Reason 4: Changes in Temperature
Another reason why you feel your sleep number bed is losing its air is that the temperature can cause changes in air pressure that can affect the firmness of the mattress.
Suppose the temperature suddenly drops then air particles in the air chambers of your mattress will slow down and cause air pressure to drop which will make you feel that your mattress is losing its air.
So you can make a stable temperature for your room and inflate your mattress to the desired firmness level.
