The Guardsman Recliner Care Guide


How do I close a stuck recliner?

Make sure you unplug your chair first. Turn the chair over so you can see the electric components underneath. You need to disengage the piston which is holding the foot rest open by removing the split pin. This will cause the recliner to close.

Keep your recliner cables tidy

They can be a trip hazard so make sure you arrange this to prevent it from being a problem. Don’t stuff the cable or the transformer into your chair when tidying. Recliner chair cables can be severed if they become caught in the pistons or mechanisms.

Avoiding frame bending

Always close your foot rest first before getting up. Recliner frames will bend or snap if exposed to too much weight or stress.

Check your socket first

If you’ve got a problem be sure to call us, but make sure you’ve checked the socket first by testing it with another electrical device.

Recliner Cables

Broken cables are a frequent problem as they sometimes get caught in the mechanism leaving them damaged or completely severed. We always have a replacement recliner cable available.

Broken Switch

Switches can jam, get stuck, or simply break in both manual and electric recliners. We can replace these straight away to get your chair reclining again.

Broken Springs

Springs can snap or come out of place. We can replace broken springs and get your recliner feeling comfy again.
