My wife and I purchased a Lane furniture sectional reclining sofa and matching recliner in 2006. Soon after purchasing it, the back of the sectional became un-attached and started gouging the wall behing it.
Within a year and a half, the reclining chairs back broke causing it to lean. The recliner has always had a lean to it and now the problem is worse. Once you raise the foot part of the recliner, the backrest of the recliner lays down (like you are laying down) flat with just your body weight and there is no way to adjust it. This week, I raised the foot platform and there was a loud cracking noise.
Upon tilting the recliner over to look for the problem, several broken pieces of metal and some washers fell out. One GREAT thing about this recliner, we have a big fire every New Years and IT will be the firewood.
