 Air Leak Repair Kit for Sleep Number Beds


One of the most difficult things to repair on a Sleep Number® Bed is an air leak because of the random location of possible air leaks and the hidden location of the air hoses.

Pressure Bond for Sleep Number Bed Air Leaks 


With most air leaks starting at the hose connection from the pump to the air chamber port, in the past I would recommend a quick test which was to try to switch the hoses from left to right to see if the air leak moves. This would help by letting you know if the air leak moves to other chamber you might have a pump leak and if the leak does not move the leak can be found in the chamber. The results of this first test to narrow down where the air leak was began resulting in broken connectors.


Consumers would find o rings and plastic parts of the male fitting broken off inside the pump hose fitting or break the pump hose off when removed from the air chamber.


The best way to repair your air leak is to add the m236 large hose to your air chamber port and the f236 connector to your pump hose to form a new connection outside of the bed on each of your. You can purchase both of these along with a pressure cap and latex patch in the air leak repair kit.

Repairing the Air Leak In Sleep Number Beds with the Air Leak Repair Kit from Airbedpros


To find the Air Leak in your Sleep Number® Bed, you can begin by unzipping your mattress, fold back the top cover and foam comfort layers to see the air chambers and foam rails.

Next, Remove the foam rail at the head of your Sleep Number® bed, you will see the air hose connections at the air chambers. 

If your air leak is on one side of the bed, begin by removing the air lines, and switching them from one side to the other. By doing this, you will be able to see if the air leak moves. 

If your air leak follows the hose(s) you moved, it will most likely be the Pump Hose Connector or the pump itself.

If the air leak does not move, it is most likely the air chamber fitting, Broken o-ring, or air chamber may have a hole in the canvas area (Use Canvas Air Chamber Patch).

Begin by inspecting the air bed parts connectors to see if they have any signs of cracks at the hose or under the o-ring area. The o-ring should be on the air chamber nipple, but it can break off inside the push button connector on the pump hose when the hose is removed.

If you find no leaks there, Listen for any air that may be leaking by listening closely to the pump and air hoses, and the air chambers themselves.

    When storing air chambers, you should always have them capped off to prevent the inside from drying out. Once the inside latex dries out, holes can develop. I suggest removing the air chamber from your Sleep Number® Bed and connect it to your pump on a table where you can work on it. Begin by pumping it up as full as you can get it. Use spray cleaner to spray it down and look for bubbles. Watch this video for more tips.

    I also have the same problem and can’t come up with a solution.

    I appreciate your efforts to solve our problems. Here is mine. We purchased this Model 3000 full size dual bed a few years ago after a couple gave their 12 year old a chance to practice his trampoline jumps on. they had to call Sleep Number Support in several times. The last time it was repaired, they gave him a different bed and put this one up for sale.We bought it and didn’t get a chance to use it until recently. I pumped it up for some family company and it went flat in just a few nights. I can pump it up full and leave it alone for about 2 weeks before it is nearly flat. Filled to capacity and capped chambers for about 3 weeks and both chambers held a full charge. I can’t hear any leaks around the pump even with the cover off and trying bubble checking where I could didn’t find any thing either. A question In have is, since the numbers don’t show properly on the controller, does the pump have regulator circuit for automatic pressure control? Otherwise what else could I have?
