Inflatable Not Inflating Properly


Recommended Posts

I have a brand new Grinch with Max and sleigh that is not inflating properly. It only inflates about 1/3 of the inflatable. I only see one zipper and it is closed all the way. There is no debris lodged in the motor. There are no holes anywhere either. The blower has normal output compared to other blowers I have compared it to. I have left the inflatable running for almost a 1/2 hour and it doesn't inflate more than a 1/3 of the inflatable. Anyone ever had a similar problem with this particular Grinch or other inflatable? Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

I bought a used grinch with Max that stand at a garage sale.He also doesn't inflate all the way.I didn't see any holes nor more than 1 zipper in mine.Bummed that he doesn't inflate.

It seems someone said to spray it with some kind of fabric protector but not sure what it is.Someone will let us know LOL!

I would double check the inflatable for another zipper. Yours is a large inflatable and there might be a zipper hiding somewhere. Check all the seams for that extra zipper. If your motor is blowing correctly, then there's a reason for it not inflating all the way.

I had a similar issue when I purchased (new) the gargoyle rising out the tombstone. I was VERY disappointed when it didn't inflate properly. I was ready to contact the ebay seller when I thought I would give it one more look over. Well, way down IN the tombstone was another zipper - who would have thought of checking in there? Anyway, once that one was closed off it inflated perfectly and I was a happy camper!

So, after that incident, if my new inflatable doesn't inflate properly, I inspect it for a "missing and open" zipper. Good luck. Let us know what you find out.

Could it be Scotchguard?

No, I already checked the lights inside. I forgot to mention that earlier. I searched all over for another zipper and can't locate a second zipper. That was my first thought and is still the most logical one. If anyone has this same inflatable could they check and see if there is more than one zipper. The only one I see is located in the back near the bottom of base. Thanks so far to everyone who has come up with suggestions.

Can you try and take a pic of the inflatable when it is inflated as best as it can go I would love to see a pic if you can get one it might give me more things for you to try!
