ChiliPad Cleaning Tips and Maintenance – ChiliPad PLS Model and New ChiliPad Cube Models


Recommendations for keeping your Chili Technology ChiliPad running efficiently:

Periodically remove and clean dust screen at the intake vent under the handle (for PLS Control Units ONLY)

For all ChiliPad control units you can use a can of compressed air to blow in and around the side vents. (For the PLS control you can blow the top vent as well)

Periodically Pour one cap full of hydrogen peroxide into the reservoir to keep the circulation system clean. Procedure: Set temperature to 75 degree F. Remove the reservoir cap, and add the Hydrogen Peroxide. LEAVE THE RESERVIOR CAP OFF.


The Hydrogen Peroxide will react with the dirt or other foreign particles to clean the system. Once the reaction has stopped (bubbles no longer form), replace the cap, reset the temperature to your desired sleep temperature.

IMPORTANT: If you have previously added any other substance to your water reservoir (such as vinegar), you must flush out the system before adding hydrogen peroxide.

Washing Your ChiliPad Pad. The ChiliPad

mattress pads are machine washable on a frontload washing machine.


Secure or wrap the extension tail with a rubber band or other means to minimize the risk of it flailing in the spin cycle and causing damage to the plastic male connector.

WASHING: Gentle cycle and COLD WATER ONLY.
DRYING: Delicate NO Heat cycle or AIR DRY.

IMPORTANT: ChiliPad Operational Tips
Insure there is ample space around the Control Unit/Cube for ventilation. The Control Unit/Cube utilizes fresh air to cool the electronics, so sufficient air is necessary for optimal performance and long life of your system. Clearance of 24 inches on all sides is recommended. — DO NOT PUT YOUR CONTROL UNIT UNDER YOUR BED— as this will significantly restrict the airflow to the unit.

Frequently inspect the connection tubes to insure there are no kinks or restrictions that may prevent the free flow of the water through your system, Your ChiliPad is a closed loop system, the water in the system needs to be able to freely flow through the loop, up one hose in the tail to the pad and back down through the other hose to the control unit.

NOTE: Failure to perform routine clean and maintenance can VOID your warranty.
