Okin lift chair. Recently the lift chair has stopped working. I purchased a new transformer from amazon but that does not seem to be the solution. When I plug in the transformer it makes a clicking sound. The chair is a couple of years old so maybe its the motor.

The clicking sound typically indicates a stripped gear in the motor. A new motor should solve your problem. Feel free to contact us to resolve your problem.

Hello we have a power lift chair..with an okin delta drive actuator.3R0092-3R3754.It is making a clicking sound when I get it to the up position ..does this mean that I need a new motor or can this be greased/oiled or lubed. thank you

I have an okin electric recliner SP2-B. I bought it used 4 years ago. the problem is that it rose by itself to the fully upright position and won't go down. the hand control felt warm to touch but had now cooled down since no supply to it. there is a green light that comes on the power supply black box but no light to the hand controls. I turned it off for hald hr to see if it will reset but no luck. I will be going to store to see if 2 9-volt batteries will work at least to lower it, but any suggestions if that won't work and what you think might be you the parts if you suggest a part and how much?

My mom has a lift chair, and in a nursing home. I don,t have the model at the moment. The lights are working on the remote and on the box that sits on the floor but it will not do anything.Any suggestions

The lift chair moves much slower than in the beginning. It will not lift as far back as it once did. I am assuming the motor is going out, instead of any of the other components. Any thoughts on this ?

I don't know what to do with mine, because I have a lift chair that isn't un-reclining.

Seems to be wood footrest grating against attachment bolts and making noise when going up or down. I purchased this from a 80 year old lady whose husband died from ALS. She said he only used it about 3 times because she had to lift him and could not. Finally finding one that was actually new except it has sat unused for 2 years that I could afford I am really disappointed. I did not hear the noise at her house but now it's always there. What can I do?

The plastic bracket on the motor housing (where the lift bar attaches) is weakening and the pin now slips out when trying to recline the chair. Not sure if it is suppose to be open ended or if it's broke, but the pin slips through. Is there a way to fix this>

I have Okin recliner. It made a lot noise when moving loudest when going to the upright position. I laid the chair on it's side to lube the moving parts with WD-40. I moved the chair mechanism with the control switch. It was in the almost full extended position when I stopped. Did the lube job tried to put the chair in the up position and now it will not respond to the switch commands. I checked all the connections and there is power to the control box. Not sure what to look for next. Can I use a paper clip as a probe to meter the rest of the system? The probes on the meter are to big for the connections. Any suggestions? Thank you, Frank
