Massage Chair Maintenance: Troubleshooting and Storage

In part one of this two-part blog series – Massage Chair Maintenance, we looked at some basic cleaning and oiling tips that should be regularly considered as part of your massage chair’s maintenance routine. These simple areas will help your chair last for many years into the future, providing you with quality comfort and massage services — and there are a few others to consider as well.

We also assist many clients with basic maintenance and care for their massage chairs, including not just cleaning, but also a few other important areas. What are some of these other concepts to keep an eye on? Here’s a primer.

Massage Chair Maintenance – Troubleshooting Issues

In the case where any issue arises with your massage chair, it’s important to take some basic troubleshooting steps on your own before immediately reaching out to customer service or the manufacturer. First, review the user manual that came with your purchase. Many times, common issues can be easily resolved by reviewing the product’s documentation.

If you’re still experiencing difficulties after consulting your user manual, it’s time to start investigating specific areas of concern. If your massage chair isn’t functioning as it should, here are some key spots you can check:

  • Is the power cord plugged in?
  • Is the power on?
  • Are all of the cords connected properly?
  • Is anything obstructing the path of the massage chair or its parts?
  • Is the massage chair positioned in an open area with enough space for it to move around?

These are just a few basic troubleshooting tips to get you started. If you’re still experiencing problems after trying these methods, don’t hesitate to reach out for additional assistance.

Proper Massage Chair Storage

Another vital part of care for your massage chair is knowing how to properly store it when it’s not in use. This will help keep the chair clean and dry, as well as help avoid any wear and tear on the unit.

When storing your massage chair, be sure to:

  • Clean the chair thoroughly before storing it away, including the massage head and all other removable parts
  • Make sure the chair is completely dry before storing it
  • Never store the chair in a damp or humid environment
  • Keep the chair out of direct sunlight during storage
  • Store the chair in a dry, cool place

These tips will prevent risks like electric shocks, as well as help your chair last for many years to come.

Periodically Check for Damage

Even if you’re taking all of the necessary precautions with your massage chair, it’s still important to periodically check the unit for any damage that may have occurred. This includes inspecting the power cord and massage head, as well as all of the moving parts, to be sure everything is functioning properly and there are no loose wires or other concerns.

Additionally, if you notice any strange sounds coming from your massage chair, this could be an indication that something isn’t working right and you’ll want to take a closer look. By periodically checking your chair for damage and addressing any concerns right away, you can help keep your massage chair in good condition for years to come.
