We are going to show you how to disassemble an electric recliner. These steps apply to most brands, but if you have a different model please consult your manual before attempting any of these steps. An electric recliner is designed to be comfortable and relaxing, so it can be tempting to simply leave one assembled in one spot as long as possible.
However, there may come a time when this isn’t possible anymore or you want to move it into another room. This article will provide instructions on how to disassemble an electric recliner without damaging the frame or upholstery.
Steps on Dismantling Electric Recliner
Step One: Find the frame’s center. This can be done by putting a measuring tape around the recliner and find where it measures 50 inches from either end of the sofa. Mark this point with an X that is visible to you but not too noticeable for anyone else who might come in contact with your furniture or upholstery later on.
Step Two: Find the two screws on each side of the frame, just below where it meets up with the backrest. Remove them by turning counterclockwise and then lift on one end while carefully sliding your foot in to help keep pressure off of a floorboard or other furniture that might be damaged from moisture build-up when you remove the frame.
Step Three: Carefully slide one end of the recliner over and then use your foot to pull up on it while sliding out the backrest. Keep doing this until you can remove both ends of the sofa from where they meet in front, as well as all four feet that were screwed into each corner for stability.
Step Four: Remove any remaining screws or hardware that may be keeping the seat and backrest attached. You should now have a recliner, sofas, frame with four feet, two side arms for stability on either end of the frame as well as both ends of the sofa where it meets in front.
What is an Electric Recliner?
An electric recliner is a type of chair with two parts: one back that usually comes up and over the head, so you completely lean down into it when sitting in it; then also has a seat below.
Electric recliners are often made to look like couches or armchairs as well as have more than just an electrical motor to recline the back.
The seat and back of an electric recliner are often made with leather or suede, which means they stain easily. They are usually found in a living room setting for comfort as well as convenience (they can be used without making any physical effort)
What Makes Electric Recliners Difficult To Disassemble?
There are a few factors that make electric recliners difficult to disaster. One reason is that they’re heavy and often have an elevated back, which requires more physical strength than other types of furniture (such as regular chairs). Another factor is how the electrical wires are made, such as running through the seat or on the back of the chair.
These are some general tips for how to dismantle an electric recliner
Make sure you have a screwdriver and large, strong people with you before beginning the process; it will be difficult if only one person is trying to take apart an electric recliner by themselves!
Try unscrewing the screws on the bottom of the recliner.
If you find that this doesn’t work, try unscrewing them from the back and side. This will be difficult to do but it is still worth a shot!
Make sure no one touches any wires when dismantling an electric recliner!
How to Fix a Faulty Electric Recliner Mechanism
The electric recliner mechanism is a delicate piece of machinery that can be easily broken.
Faulty mechanisms are often the result of pulling too hard on various parts, such as when people try to force their seat back or release it from an upright to lying position with one hand and using all their strength. This will cause the spring to break or become detached from the seat.
To fix a faulty recliner mechanism, you need to locate the loose wires and reattach them back into their proper position.
If they are broken off, then replace both ends of the wire with new ones that have insulation on one end so it will not detach again when heated up by the electric current.
If the wire is still attached to one end, then you need to carefully detach it from the other side without damaging any of the insulation and heating up a new end with a lighter or match.
When reattaching wires on an electric recliner, make sure they are securely in place so as not to break off again.
How to Clean Electric Recliner
The best way to clean an electric recliner is by using a vacuum cleaner with the appropriate attachments.
However, if you need to remove stubborn stains and marks from your chair as well, the following ingredients are recommended: dish detergent or soap (dishwashing liquid), water in a spray bottle, white vinegar in another spray bottle, baking soda, and a scrubbing brush.
To clean the chair, first, use water to dampen the entire surface before removing tough stains with dish detergent or soap (dishwashing liquid).
The most hard-to-remove marks should be tackled using vinegar mixed with some baking powder.
After cleaning all of this stubborn dirt, wipe dry with a clean cloth. The chair should now be spotless and ready to use again!
