IMPORTANT!
READ THIS MANUAL FIRST BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING YOUR
POWER LIFT AND RECLINE CHAIR.
Your power lift and recline chair has been engineered from the leg levelers up
to provide the ultimate in strength and reliability.
Great care has been taken to provide you with total comfort and safety. Golden
Technologies thoroughly inspects and tests each unit prior to shipment.
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 or pets near the chair while the chair is operating.
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.

4. Adjust the leg levelers on the bottom of the chair if necessary to level the chair.
Some high pile carpets can obstruct the footrest operation by rubbing against
it. Raise the levelers to a height above the pile.
5. Slide the hand control from between the back and arm out toward the back of
the chair. Secure the cord into the quick release cable clamp located above the
magazine pocket on the arm of the chair.
AUTO DRIVE HAND CONTROL OPERATION
1. To recline the back of the chair, press button (S1) and hold until the back
reaches the desired position. Then release the button.
2. To bring the back of the chair to an upright position, press button (S2)
and hold until the back reaches the desired position. Then release the button.

3. To raise the foot rest and seat, press button (S3) and hold until the
foot rest reaches the desired position. Then release the button.
4. To lower the foot rest, seat, and lift the chair, press button (S4) and hold
until the footrest closes, then release the button. If you want to lift the chair,
continue holding button until chair reaches the desired height. Then release
the button.
5. To lower the chair from a raised position, press button (S3) and hold
until the chair reaches the floor. Then release the button. If you want to raise
the footrest, continue holding the button until the footrest reaches the desired
position. Then release the button. From the lifted position you can also press
buttons (S5, S6, S8 or S9) and the chair will move to those positions.
6. To close and lift the chair from a reclined/seated position (footrest up,
back down), press button (S10). If you want to bring the chair to a seated
position, hold the button until the footrest closes, then release it. Press button
(S2) to bring the back the rest of the way up to seated position. If you want to
close and lift the chair hold down (S10) until the chair stops. The motors will
automatically shut off when the back closes and the chair reaches its highest
position.
7. Getting into your lift chair. While standing next to your chair, press button
(S10) 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
button (S3). As the chair continues downward adjust yourself into a position
that is comfortable to you. Continue holding button
until chair is in the seated position (chair firmly on the
floor), then release the button. Continue operating
the chair with buttons S1 thru S9 until you reach
your desired position.
8. Getting out of your chair. Press button (S10)
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. Repeat
no. 7 when you want to sit down.
Note: The motors are set to shut off when they
reach their 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.

Programming the Memory Buttons S5, S9
Using buttons S1 thru S4 move the chair to a position that suits your needs. Use
the following procedure to program the Mem1 and Mem2 buttons.
1. Press and hold program (SP) button, the back light goes off while pressed
2. In about 3 seconds the backlight will start flashing (one flash)
3. Within 5 seconds, press one of the memory buttons (S5, S9) to save the
position. The back light will return to non-flashing on when the position is
stored.
If a programmable memory button is not pressed within 5 seconds, or a different
button is pressed, then the programming sequence is aborted and you will need
to repeat steps 1 to 3 above. You may reprogram the memory buttons as often
as you like.
MAXICOMFORT™ POSITIONS
Your Golden power lift chair has been equipped with the MaxiComfort™ System.
The MaxiComfort System has been designed specifically for you. Offering you a
wide range of body positioning, so you can choose the position that best suits your
needs. The MaxiComfort System accomplishes this by providing four primary
motions: three recline, one lift and combinations of those motions, allowing you
to settle into your favorite comfort position. Shown below are some of the Maxi
Comfort positions. There are many to choose from. You may stop your Golden
power lift chair at one of the positions shown or anywhere in between just by
releasing the buttons on the hand control when the chair reaches the position
you desire.

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.)
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).
