Troubleshooting a Deflated Inflatable

Troubleshooting an inflatable that keeps turning off involves checking various components, such as the power supply, blower, and the structure of the inflatable itself. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help identify and resolve potential issues:


Evaluate the Blower: Make sure the blower is turned on and functioning and that no one has turned it off. If the blower doesn’t start, it might be faulty or have a connection issue. Check for obstructions in the blower’s air intake or exhaust vent that could be blocking airflow. Listen for any unusual noises from the blower that might indicate internal problems.

Check Power Source: Ensure the power cord is plugged into an operational outlet. Make sure that the GFCI is not tripped; press the reset. Try plugging another device into the outlet to verify that it is working. Examine the power cord for any damage or signs of wear that could interrupt the electrical connection.

Inspect Circuit Breaker: Verify that the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. If it has, reset it and monitor to see if it trips again when the inflatable is in use. Inflatables pull a lot of amps and you can not plug in a lot of stuff to the same breaker. 

Check for Air Leaks: Inspect the inflatable for any tears, holes, or seams coming apart that could be causing air to escape. Pay particular attention to areas that are heavily stressed during use.

Look for Overloading: Ensure the inflatable is not overloaded with users, as excessive weight can strain the blower and cause it to shut off.
