What does a recliner repair service include?
Reclining chair repair involves a number of different tasks, depending on the chair’s style and problems. Your handyman will assess your recliner and recommend a solution that will restore it to working order. Here are the most common repair services (aside from upholstery repair):
The cable is a wire that activates the reclining mechanism. It’s normally the first part of the recliner chair to break down or malfunction. Your handyman will first flip the recliner onto its front and release the locks that hold the back of the chair in place. Then they’ll open up the recliner and check the cable, which sits on the inside wall of the chair. This cable is put back into the correct position if it’s been dislodged. In some cases, the cable may need to be replaced entirely. If this happens, your repairer will dislodge the cable hook, separate it from the clips, and remove the screws from the handle to remove the entire cable mechanism. They’ll place new cable through the hole and screw it into place, feeding the cable wire through the same clips and putting the hook back into position.
If the reclining mechanism is damaged, your handyman may recommend replacing the mechanism. To do this, they'll first flip the recliner onto its front and release the locks that hold the back of the chair in place. Then they’ll flip the chair completely upside down and remove the bolts that hold the reclining mechanism to the rail system. This gives your handyman access to the inside of the recliner chair. Next, they’ll remove the cable and bolts that hold the reclining mechanism to the footrest before securing a new reclining mechanism.
Electric recliner repair
First, your chair repairer will connect the transformer and power cord and flip the chair over to check that all the chords are connected to the motor that powers the recline. Most of the time, electric recliners stop working because a plug has become loose. If it still doesn’t work, your handyman will check all the wires and repaired them if damaged. To repair the wires, your handyman will strip them of insulation. They’ll use a soldering iron to reconnect exposed wires and protect them using a heat shrink. Alternatively, if you need your motor replaced, your handyman will disconnect the old one and reconnect a new one in its place.

Electric Recliner Repair to Electrics

What is the type of property? House What would you like the electrician/electric recliner repairer to work on? I have an electric recliner, which works almost perfectly, except the electrics in one of the chairs, after a period of time, “locks” up and a high pitch noise can be heard and the electrics on that side no longer function. The other side of the recliner continues to work ok. This only affects one side of the chair and only after it’s been powered on for a certain amount of time - I believe it’s when it goes into standby mode or similar - it can’t get out of it. Turning the chair off and back on at the power point ALWAYS fixes it, but after a certain period of time it will become unresponsive again. Would like the electric/wiring fixed so standby mode on that side of the chair doesn’t turn it unresponsive.

Think it’s the cable that’s broken as well as the springs. We bought new springs but can’t them on.
