Your Golden power lift chair is a medical device. Therefore, you are required
to exercise caution when operating it to ensure your personal safety and that of
others around you. The following are rules for the safe operation of your Golden
power lift chair.
WARNING
Care should be taken in the unpacking of this unit, so as not to cause injury to
persons or damage to the unit. Dispose of all plastic bags and covers, as they
can be a smothering hazard to small children.

Do not allow children to play with or operate the chair at any time.
Hand control should be unplugged and placed out of reach of children when
the chair is not in use.
Do not flop down into the chair when getting into it, or while it is in its lift
position. Flopping down into the chair will damage it and could cause personal
injury.
Do not allow anyone to sit on your lap, or on the arm of the chair, or on the
footrest while operating the chair, as it may cause tipping and could result in
personal injury.
Do not place fingers or hands between the seat cushion and the inside arm of
the chair while sitting in the chair or when the chair is in operation or plugged
into a power source.
Do not retrieve fallen objects from inside or under the chair while the chair is
plugged into a power source.
Do not operate chair if there are any persons, pets or other obstructions under
or in front of the footrest, under the chair or behind the chair.
Do not smoke while operating, sitting or resting in the chair.
To reduce risk of electrical shock, do not immerse any of the electrical
components into a liquid, or spill any liquids onto electrical components. Do
not open any of the electrical components. There are no serviceable parts.
Warranty will be void if any of the electrical components are opened by other
than a qualified service person.
Make sure the chair is placed at the specified distance from a wall/corner
(page 4). Failure to do so can damage the chair and will void the warranty.
Do not use any type of electrical extension cord to plug your chair into an
electrical outlet.

the down button (S2) and hold. The chair will keep
going past the seated position and start to recline.
Release the button when the chair reaches the
desired reclined position.
7. Getting into your lift chair. While standing next to
your chair, press the chair up button (S1) and raise
the chair to a height you can sit against. This height will vary from person to
person depending on the individual’s needs. Raise the chair high enough so
you do not have to flop down into the chair. Flopping down into the chair
will damage it and could cause personal injury. Press the chair down
button (S2). As the chair continues downward, adjust yourself into a position
that is comfortable to you. Continue pressing the button until chair is in the
seated position (chair firmly on the floor), then release the button.
8. Getting out of your chair, press the chair up button (S1) and raise the chair
to a height that enables you to easily stand. Release the button. Return the
chair to the seated position (chair firmly on the floor) after getting out of the
chair so children, pets or obstructions do not get under the chair.
Note: Your Golden power lift chair can be stopped at any time during
lift or recline by releasing the selected button, offering you a wide
range of comfortable positions. Select the position that best suits your
needs. The motor is set to shut off when it reaches its fully extended
or fully retracted position if the selected button is not released. If you
should go past your desired position, select the button to bring you
back to your desired position. You can repeat the process as often as
you like.

Battery Back Up System
Your Golden power lift chair comes with a battery back up system so the chair
can return to the seated position in the event of a household power failure. The
batteries have enough energy to bring the chair to a seated position from either
recline or lift. The batteries do not have enough energy nor are they intended
to operate the chair for a prolonged period of time in the absence of standard
household voltage (120 volt, 60 Hz). Batteries should be replaced after one use.
Batteries should be changed yearly. (See installation page 4 and 5.)
Smart Tek™ (Power Indication)
Regular servicing is not necessary on your Golden power lift chair. Your power
lift chair is equipped with an indicator light on the hand control. This light
illuminates green when any button on the hand control is pressed, indicating
power to the hand control.
Your power lift chair also comes with a power indicator light on the transformer
and on the power cord connecting the motor to the transformer. The lights
illuminate green constantly, indicating power from the outlet to the transformer
and the motor. The lights have been provided to help you identify electrical
disconnects, should they occur, and to help your dealer to diagnose electrical
problems, should they occur.
Should the chair not operate and the lights are out, check all electrical connections
to the chair. Make sure everything is plugged in properly and there is power to
the outlet into which the chair is plugged (see installation on page 4 and 5 for
electrical connections). Should you ever encounter a problem with the operation
of your power lift chair and the lights are on, such as mechanical problems or
one light is out, discontinue all use of the product upon discovery of the problem.
Contact the dealer from whom you purchased your chair. They will be able to
resolve problems and take care of proper factory service if needed. You will need
to be prepared to answer some basic questions about your power lift chair, such
as model and serial number. The model and serial number are located on the
back of the hand control and the rear of the lift frame. Your dealer will ask you
questions about your power indicator lights, such as which one is out. Prior to
calling your dealer, check all the electrical connections to the chair. Make sure
everything is plugged in properly and there is power to the outlet into which the
chair is plugged (see installation on page 4 and 5 for electrical connections).
