Everyone loves using technology up until it stops working, and if you landed on this article, you’re standing desk isn’t working and you’re not exactly feeling the love.

Given the fact that the desk has electrical components, at one some point, it’s normal that you experience a hiccup. The most common issue is that the electric sit stand desk stops going up or going down. The desk just becomes stuck. 

In this blog, I’m going to share the most common reasons a standing desk won’t go up or down and how to fix it. Keep reading to find out how to get your desk back in working condition, and standing desk controller is usually used.. 

How to fix this

Check for any items above your standing desk parts that may be getting in the way, and remove them.

 

2. Standing desk lost power


Once the desks become uneven, one of two things can happen.

1.) The standing desk control box (the brains of the desk) finally recognizes that the legs are at different heights and it will stop moving up to prevent any more damage to the desk. 

OR

2.) The control box isn’t sophisticated enough to recognize the issue, and the desk will continue to move up and down until there’s too much friction within the leg columns, get stuck, and stop moving.

How to fix this

The desk must do a complete reset in order for the leg to be realigned and even.

 . The control box cycles out

A table’s control box, including Single-Motor Standing Desk Control BoxDual-Motor Standing Desk Control Box, and Three-Motor Standing Desk Control Box, can only go up and down so many times before it needs to rest. This is something that’s referred to as the Duty Cycle. The Duty cycle tells us the maximum amount of time the control box can be active (moving the desk up or down) and how long it needs to be inactive (in its rest stage).

If the control box reaches the maximum amount of active time, it will turn on a mandatory rest period to prevent overheating. So, when you’re desk stops working all of a sudden, don’t panic.

6.  The power, control box, or motor cables are loose

The power, motor, or control box cables can become loose by getting tugged on or stuck. The cause of the tug is often due to a lack of wire management.

A cable can be pulled out of the socket ever so slightly and still cause power to be intermittent. See the images below to see how to better identify if a cable is securely inserted.

When the cables become loose, the power within them becomes intermittent, meaning that sometimes the power can flow through them and sometimes it can’t. For many desks, every time the power is lost, the table will go into reset mode.

How to fix this

Before you reset your sit stand desk, check all cables to make sure they’re securely connected. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and reset the desk. 

To help prevent this problem, use a wire management solution to keep wires out of the way. There are a variety of options available so you can find the one that best suits you.

7. Desk has an upper container stop 

An upper container stop is a setting a user creates to reprogram the desk’s maximum height. So, instead of being able to go to 48”, you can set the max. height to 40”. They’re used to prevent collisions between your sit stand desk and another object, like a cabinet or shelf.

How to fix this

You will need to either change or delete the upper container stop to make the table go up past the current setting. To do that, follow the instructions provided by the desk’s manufacturer.

Why your standing desk won’t go down & how to fix it

 

1. Object is in the way

There may be an object below the desk that’s stopping it from going down. Common objects include chairs, mobile pedestals, file cabinet, etc.

Many standing desks have a collision detection feature that prevents the desk from hitting another object and causing any harm or damage. When it detects an object in the way, the table will stop moving downwards and then slightly move up, giving you room to remove whatever is in the way. 

How to fix this

Check under your desk and remove any object that may be blocking its travel.

 

2. Too much weight on the desk

Every height adjustable table has a maximum lifting capacity. If your desk is trying to support too much weight, an overload can occur. The desk is saying “this is too much work for me to lift” and to protect its components, it shuts off. 

How to fix this

To fix this, just remove some of the weight off your desk. Your desk should automatically turn back on and begin functioning as normal. There’s typically no need for a manual reset.

To help prevent this from happening again, research the lifting capacity of your standing desk. Pay special attention to whether that number is base only or base + worksurface. For example, if the manufacturer states “Total Lifting Capacity Base Only: 325 lbs,” that means whatever you put on top of the base (worksurface, monitors, keyboard tray, etc.) cannot exceed 325 lbs. 

 

3. The control box cycles out

A table’s control box can only go up and down so many times before it needs to rest. This is something that’s referred to as the Duty Cycle. The Duty cycle tells us the maximum amount of time the control box can be active (moving the desk up or down) and how long it needs to be inactive (in its rest stage).

If the control box reaches the maximum amount of active time, it will turn on a mandatory rest period to prevent overheating. So, when you
