I have Lane Sofa recliner that lets up and down ok, but it is difficult to get it lock in place. I have greased it down underneath and a quick glance of under there doesn’t seem to show where any adjustments can be made? This is an older sofa.Any suggestions?
Recliner mechanisms definitely wear out. I have never heard of adjustments. If everything is still bolted down properly and nothing is loose it may be time for a replacement. I talked to a furniture man once. He said that there is little you could do with them when they start to go.
