If you have a power recliner and you’ve noticed that it isn’t functioning as it should, it’s possible that it may just need a little TLC. It’s important to note that if your power recliner has stopped working, don’t try to repair it yourself.
The answer to the question of whether a recliner can be repaired depends on the make and model of the recliner you have. Most recliners won’t be repairable because they utilize a gas cylinder for the recline mechanism and when that gas cylinder bursts, the recliner is unable to be repaired.
If you’re dealing with a major issue like a broken DC motor, it’s likely the entire mechanism or motor will need to be replaced, but for simpler problems, like a button that doesn’t work, it’s often possible to repair the mechanism and fix it.
