How to program two remotes to a TempurPedic Ergo Bed

Tempurpedic Ergo Plus RemotesProgramming an additional remote to operate our TempurPedic Ergo Plus adjustable bed was not very intuitive, so here are the instructions on how to add another remote control to your unit:

  1. Buy an extra remote, install batteries.
  2. Under the bed, press and hold the LEARN button on the control unit  – hold this for 3 seconds.
  3. Now let off the button for about 1 second, then press (not hold) the button 2 times. This activates the second channel for association.
  4. Press any button on the new remote control.
  5. If the process succeeds, the LEDs on the power brick and control unit will turn off.
  6. Wait 10 seconds and then test.

Hopefully this saved you a call into their 800 number. No more fighting with your spouse over who gets the bed remote! Rejoice!

    Thank you so much for the info. Our 1st remote never worked right so they sent a replacement with NO programming instructions. Their customer service is just awful and these instructions were perfect.

      Thank you for your help. I had a power outage and had to reset remote. I watched many videos on you tube, even changed my batteries but nothing worked until I ran across your post. So easy and helpful. Thanks.

    “This activates the second channel for association.” That was the tip I needed!

    Remote 1 – Press and hold learn 3 seconds. Press any button on remote.
    Remote 2 – Press and hold learn 3 seconds. Press learn twice (activates second cannel). Press any button on remote.

    We just got a single king with two bases and remotes. Repeated the above on the second side and now everything is in sync and each have our own remotes. Installers said it couldn’t be done, and as you pointed out the manual was not intuitive. Thanks!

    I am looking for help with my TEMPUR-pedicure Advanced ERGO bases. Trying to delink them. They are operating in tandem now with two remotes. I want to separate them so each base is controlled by a single remote. Can’t seem to clear the bases to allow reprogramming.

    Any ideas?

    Where is the learn button located? Sorry but I am not sure and they didn’t give me any paperwork with the bed when I bought it.

    On my bed I purchased two weeks ago, there is no learn button but rather a WiFi reset button.
    I took a much simpler (at least for me approach).
    1) I modified the frequency of the remote 1 as follows:
    a) Unplug the bed.
    b) Held the Flat and Stop buttons down for around 10 seconds until the RF frequency was displayed
    c) pressed the “head +” button which puts a 5 on the display,
    d) then pressed the “leg -” button which adds an 8 so 58 shows on the display,
    e) then pressed the “FLAT” button and the new RF frequency 5080 begins to flash
    f) plug the bed back in within 30 seconds listening for the two sets of click from the power supply
    g) Remote 1 can now control the bed.
    2) Repeat steps b through g for Remote 2. Now both remotes should be set to RF frequency 5080 and able to control the bed.
    This is mostly described in the ShowRoom mode programming section of the users guide…/9/Tempur_Ergo_Premier_Owners_Manual.pdf – page 29

    We bought a ergo plus king two bases. Foot and head. The delivery guys set it up for one remote in tandem. The sales person the instruction manual said you can program a second remote to run tandem. Sales person is a dumb ass and the instructions suck and you tube guy don’t speak English. I have tried every possiable combo. I only can get one remote to work. The second only operates half the base. You would think that spending over $ 7000 for a bed some one the sells them would know about the product.

    Dog ate remote…
    Tried to reprogram other remote, pressed learn for 3 seconds, led flashes, pressed key on remote (teb-100), doesn’t work

    We purchased a new Tempur-pedic Model TEB-100-R bed and when we elevate the head of the bed, it will not stay up. Is there something we need to be doing to stop this ?

    Didn’t work AT FIRST for me. Just got a king with 2 bases. Installer guy only programmed one remote (so why did it come with 2???). He told my wife you could only program one remote at a time. EFF THAT! For $7K+, that’s complete + utter hogwash. Also, these dudes are just beefy movers, so don’t expect them to know how to work electronics. Found this article, tried it out for myself. We’re all smarter here than anyone in customer service at Tempurpedic, apparently…

    I finally got both remotes to work in tandem after several attempts at programming each side. At first I just programmed the nonworking remote with channel #2, since remote #1 was already working in tandem. But that created a wonky situation where only one side was moving.

    TIP #1: Mark your remotes #1 and #2, because you have to program each remote to each hydraulic base. Also designate each base side as #1 and #2, so you don’t confuse yourself. That was probably my issue at first while crawling around the floor under the bed with 2 remotes falling out of my hoodie pocket.

    TIP #2: Stay under the bed with the remote while holding the LEARN BUTTON, so that when you press a button on the remote, it’s very close to the power unit with the LEARN BUTTON on it (can’t think what to call that thing).

    TIP #3: Pace yourself when pushing the buttons. Don’t do it too fast. If it’s not working for you, keep trying. I finally got mine to work properly.

    Thanks for posting this article. You’re a scholar + a saint.
