Troubleshooting Tips

 

Shown below are the most common hand controls now in use on lift chairs.  The only real way to tell which control you need for your chair is to pay attention to the plug that attaches to the motor or transformer, and compare that plug with the illustrations below (oddly enough, the part you actually hold in your hand is not the most important factor in determining which control you need; all basic "Up/Down" switches pretty much work the same - the key is how it attaches to the other electronics). 

Shipping within the continental USA is included in the prices quoted.  We stock these parts in our warehouse for quick shipment.  If you have any questions on whether a particular part will fit your needs,  please let us know.  If you need something not listed, either call or E-Mail us.  Either way, we will need the chair manufacturer, serial #, detailed description of part needed, etc and we will do the research and get back with you promptly (you may have to look on the "law tag" sewn to the bottom of the footboard for the chair manufacturer, and on the frame behind the chair for the serial #). 

Need help deciding where the problem is?  Then please click here for our troubleshooting guide, which shows common problems and their possible solutions.

Below we list the way we normally ship our parts; we don't have to spend the extra to ship the most critical parts by FedEx and Priority Mail (none of our competitors do...), we just feel that its the right thing to do... Most folks that need lift chair parts need them right now, not several days or weeks later.  We hope you take this in consideration when you decide where to buy the parts you need... However, if you need them even sooner, just give us a call and we can figure the shipping charges for Express Mail or FedEx Express; we only charge you what the delivery companies charge us - we aren't looking to charge outrageous shipping charges to people that are already in a bind and need some help...

A personal note to our parts customers:  I realize that for most of you, repairing lift chairs is not your primary occupation; many of you are attempting this for the first time.  I just want to assure you that the vast majority of the parts we list here can easily be installed by almost anyone (please keep in mind that the last statement was made by a service technician that made his living by doing service calls...)  I also want you to feel comfortable doing business with us and our company.  We invite you to click here to read about us and the way we try to do business.  You can also click here to read some of the testimonials that folks have sent in after they have completed their repairs.  If you have a question about our parts warranty or parts return policy, you can click here to go to our Guidelines page.  I invite you to take a look at the information on the links above,  and then you can make a decision if we are the kind of people that you want to do business with.

A note about ordering parts online:  We have had many customers who call in to the shop to place their parts orders.  When I ask why they called in to order, they normally say that they thought they would get it quicker if they called it in.  Actually, the opposite is true: When parts are ordered online through our shopping cart, we can download the order in our accounting system and get the parts shipped out quickly.  In fact, most online orders sent in by 10:00 CT will be shipped out the same day.  Orders that are called in have to be manually processed, and it normally takes an extra day to be input and shipped.  While we truly don't mind if you call in with questions, etc, please don't call in your order expecting to get it quicker that way.  One exception:  If you need the part overnight, and you are willing to pay the shipping expense for Express Mail or FedEx, you can all in (by 1:00pm CT) and most orders can be shipped out that day.

Information Notes on Hand Controls

Note 1:  This hand control comes standard with a four prong connector, and the two outside prongs have a flat side so it can’t be plugged in wrong.  NOTE: The four prongs mentioned here refer to the CONNECTOR, NOT the number of WIRES; don't just see three wires and assume you have a three wire connector... Most newer motors have a four prong connector, but only have three wires attached; you will need to unplug the connectors and count the number of prongs to be sure you order the correct control.  If you have an older model hand control with a three prong round connector and the two outside prongs have a flat side, then order the three prong one below.  If it is even older, and it has any other type connector (four prong with flat pins, connector with orange terminals, or even a six prong square connector, etc), then you can still use this hand control; you will need to “hard wire” it to the motor cord with crimp connectors; we have instructions on how to do this in the Hubbell section of our Troubleshooting Tips page.

Note 2:  Chairs with Hubbell motors that have a heat/massage system are sort of rare, but there are still a few out there.  The connections on this control for the heat and massage are the ones most commonly used, but some older chairs will not plug in to these connectors… For those, you will have to “hard wire” your heat and the massage wires to the new control.

Note 3:  This hand control is used with a Von Weise low volt motor system.  The connector on the end of the hand control cord has a small square four prong plug.  NOTE: the control you will receive will look a little different than the one pictured, but will work the same, except that the replacement control will not be lighted.  The original control pictured is only available as a complete Von Weise electronics set, with the motor, transformer and hand control.  We have those available, but we found a source that would allow is to sell the hand control separately.

Note 4:  The #6210 and #6212 hand controls are the most common Okin hand controls in use today.  The #6210 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to a short cord off the motor.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #6212 has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with five pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place.  If you have a chair with an Okin system and it has a hand control like the one pictured, either one of these will work, as they are both wired the same.  The way to tell which one you need is to just follow the cord from the part you hold in your hand down past the coiled part, and see if there is a straight plug a few inches from the coiled part (#6212), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#6210).  The #6212 is the newer design, and was developed as a way to easily change the hand control without having to turn the chair over.  Another selling feature is that if you have grandchildren over and they like playing on the chair, then you can easily unplug the control so they won’t play with it (of course, it’s OK with us if you let them play with the chair – grandkids are great for our business…)

Note 5:  This is the extension cable only that the #6212 hand control plugs into in the side pocket of the chair, and goes on down to plug into the short cord off the motor.  Normally, the only reason to replace this cord is if it has gotten pinched by the chair mechanism.

Note 6:  This control is for chairs that have a dual motor system; one motor controls the up & down motion of the chair, the other motor controls the back action.  This control has a round five pin plug like the #6210 & #6212, but has two rows of buttons.

Note 7:  This control looks like our # 6210, but it has a round plug with seven pins; this is a very rare hand control that we hardly ever sell, so be sure that your plug has the seven pin connector before you order.

Note 8:  This is a very common hand control used on more expensive La Z boy lift chairs.  However, be sure that: 1) you have a La Z Boy chair, and 2) check that your old hand control has a sticker with the number 11540 on the back.  Please give us a call if you have this type of hand control, but you don’t have a La Z Boy chair… We probably have another control that will work, but if you don’t have a La Z Boy chair, this control won’t work.

Note 9:  This is also a common hand control used on La Z boy lift chairs.  However, be sure that: 1) you have a La Z Boy chair, and 2) check that your old hand control has a sticker with the number 11620 on the back.  La Z Boy has used controls that look very similar to this control, but it has different numbers on the back, like 75000208-01 and 02. Please give us a call if you have this type of hand control, as the #6219 will not work with those controls.

Note 10:  This is just as pictured; it is only used on Golden chairs designed with an infinite position back.  Please note that the chair has to be designed for the infinite position function; just ordering this control and installing it on a standard chair will not give the chair the infinite position function.

Note 11:  The #8210 and #8212 hand controls are the most common Dewert hand controls in use today.  The #8210 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8212 has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with five pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place.  The #8212 control usually has a white tag around the wire of the hand control close to the plug end that has "P/N 3544" or "P/N 3547.  The way to tell which one you need is to just follow the cord from the part you hold in your hand down past the coiled part, and see if there is a straight plug a few inches from the coiled part (#8212), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8210).  The #8212 is the newer design, and was developed as a way to easily change the hand control without having to turn the chair over.  Another selling feature is that if you have grandchildren over and they like playing on the chair, then you can easily unplug the control so they won’t play with it (of course, it’s OK with us if you let them play with the chair – grandkids are great for our business…).  If you want to upgrade to the quick disconnect feature, you can simply order the #8212 control and the # 8243 extension cable below; this will give chairs with the older style one piece cord the convenience of the quick disconnect setup.  NOTE: If you have the # 8212 type hand control, then please look at Note 12 below to be sure you get the correct version for your chair.

Note 12:  The #8217 is for Pride chairs made after November 2006 with Okin electronics.  The hand control looks almost identical to the # 8212 above, except it has a six terminal switch inside to accommodate the Okin system.  The way to tell the difference between the #8212 and #8217 is as follows: 1) Look at either the transformer or the motor; if either of these has the word "Dewert" on it, then you need the #8212 hand control; if it has "Okin" on either, you need the # 8217 control.  2) The #8212 control usually has a white tag around the wire of the hand control close to the plug end that has "P/N 3544" or "P/N 3547"; the #8217 has a white tag that says "P/N KC-7059"

Note 13:  This is the extension cable only that only the #8212 hand control plugs into in the side pocket of the chair, and goes on down to plug into the short cord off the motor.  Normally, the only reason to replace this cord is if it has gotten pinched by the chair mechanism.  Note: this extension cable will not work with the #8217 control above.

Note 14:  The #8214 and #8214QD controls are for chairs with heat and massage systems; the controls have a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have two smaller switches (red and white) for the heat and massage.  As with the # 8210 & # 8212 controls in Note 11 above, the #8214 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8214QD has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with five pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place.  The way to tell which one you need is to just follow the cord from the part you hold in your hand down past the coiled part, and see if there is a straight plug a few inches from the coiled part (#8214QD), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8214).

Note 15:  The #8216 and #8216QD controls are for chairs with an infinite control system for the chair back; the controls have a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have a smaller white switch  that moves side to side to lay the back down.  As with the #8210 & #8212 controls in Note 11 above, the #8216 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8216QD has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with five pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place.  The way to tell which one you need is to just follow the cord from the part you hold in your hand down past the coiled part, and see if there is a straight plug a few inches from the coiled part (#8216QD), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8216).

Note 16:  These controls are generally used on only the high-end, very expensive Pride chairs.  Each has a grey control housing, with a black thumb switch for the up & down, and below that are four push switches, a top red switch for heat, and three white switches below that for the massage and intensity.  The #8218 has nothing above the black up & down switch, while the #8219 has a white infinite button control above the black up/down switch; just compare the pictures to your control to see which one you have.

Note 17:  PLEASE READ THIS NOTE VERY CAREFULLY, AS THIS CHANGE FROM PRIDE HAS CAUSED A GREAT DEAL OF CONFUSION.  The control pictured here is is the newest style hand control from Pride; it is a grey control, with push buttons for up & down, plus a lock button.  It attaches to a control box , which then attaches to an Okin transformer and an Okin Deltadrive motor.  However, Pride has had many production problems with this setup; it seems either the hand control was failing, or more often, the control box it plugged into went bad.  They tried several different solutions, but finally settled on using a standard Okin quick disconnect control (our part # 6212) and eliminating the control boxWhat you need to do is to completely remove the control box from the chair... First, find the control box; usually, it is mounted behind the chair, or underneath the chair toward the rear.  If you don't see it, just follow either the wire from the hand control, or the wire coming from the transformer; both plug into wires off the control box.  Unplug all the wires coming from that box and remove the box from the chair.  Then, you take the cord coming from the transformer toward the chair, and plug it in to a short two prong cord off the actuator that nothing is currently plugged into.  Then, you plug the new hand control cord to the other cord coming out of the motor.  Everything then is plugged directly to the motor (which is how all the other major chair manufacturers wire their chairs).  With this new configuration, the hand control isn't lighted, but it is a much simpler setup with much less to go wrong with it.  Please understand that you won't be getting the grey hand control that is pictured, but if you take the #6212 that we send you, and you follow the instructions above, this should take care of the problem. 

Note 18:  These are recessed controls that are normally found in power recliners and theater chairs... They are built into either the arm of the chair or sofa, or under the arm on the side of the chair.  There are several different styles of these recessed controls, but they all have a round five pin connector on the end of the cord.  The #6290 has a rectangular housing, and is held on by two screws (the screw holes measure 3 1/2" center to center); the #6292 has an oval shaped housing, and is also held on by two screws ( the screw holes measure 2 5/8" center to center); the #6293 has a round housing with a diameter of 2 5/8".\

Note 19:  The 11560 has a three pin quick disconnect type control that plugs into an extension cord in the side or magazine pocket of the chair; that extension cord goes on down to plug into the motor with a five pin connector.  The 11560 is not being made anymore, but our 6212 Okin quick disconnect control will easily replace the11560.  The only real difference (besides what it looks like) is that the 6212 has a five pin quick disconnect; however, the 6212 also comes with the extension cable attached that goes down to the motor.  All you need to do is to remove the extension cable that is now attached to your chair, and replace it with the extension cable that we send with the 6212.  You could order the 11560 from the factory (they still have a few), but our control is almost one half the cost of the La Z Boy control, and it seems to work better.  This explanation may seem complicated, but when you get the new control, it will all make sense; if you still have problems, just call or email us and we can help.

Note 20:  If you are still with me after the shock of the price listed has worn off, let me explain... The 75000208-01 and 75000208-02 controls were parts that la Z Boy got from overseas sources.  Those controls aren't available anymore, so La Z Boy found another source; the only problem was that to make the new control work with the chairs, a kit had to be developed.  This kit consists of a new hand control, a new control box, a new transformer, some jumper wires, and an instruction booklet - that is why the cost is so much (when all you really wanted was a hand control or a control box...).  Normally, this takes care of most electrical problems with the chair, as when this kit is installed, basically all critical parts will be new under the chair except the motor.  We will need the ACK # off your chair, as well as the style number to be able to order; the ACK number (short for "acknowledgement" is a 15 digit number (9 digits, a dash, 3 digits, another dash, 3 more digits) that is located either on a tag under the footrest or under the frame of the chair.  The style number is letters and numbers together, like 1LM518, etc...  However, I would also need to remind you that these parts have to be ordered from the factory, and no factory order from La Z Boy can be returned for any reason. 

Note 21:   The # 8215 controls are for chairs with both heat and massage and infinite control systems; the control has a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have a smaller white switch  that moves side to side to lay the back down and two smaller switches (red and white) for the heat and massage.  It has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with seven pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place.

Note 22:  After so long a time, we now have these recessed controls in stock. These are used on Berkline and other manufacturers power recliners and theater chairs.  As shown, they have a telephone type plug for the recessed control, and it plugs into our part # JLDP power supply.

Note 23:  This is the newest style hand control sold by Golden Technologies.  It has features such as memory buttons and a button to make the chair go into the TV watching position.  Please note: This hand control cannot be substituted for a standard two button hand control just because you want these features on your chair; the chair would need the rest of the electronics designed for this control.

Note 24:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with Chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  The back of the control will list a "model # 2802HL-PR3" on the control.  It has a one piece cord with a nine pin screw on connector that looks like what would screw into the back of a computer.

Note 25:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with Chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  Sometimes the back of the control will list a "model # HC-2802" on the control, but not always.

Note 26:  This is a newer style hand control that Golden started using a few years ago, when all the lift chair manufacturers started using lighted hand controls.  Note:  If you are not a fan of the lighted control, you can use our part # 6212 control (which is what Golden used for many years before they went to this one).  As you can see, it is a black control with two white buttons; it doesn't light up or have the wood grain finish, but it is a good bit cheaper than this newer control.  We have both in stock, so it all comes down to your preference.

Note 27:  This is the extension cable that goes from the side pocket of the chair down to the control box (wiring harness) under the chair.  It is designed for the # 11540 La Z Boy hand control, and has an eight pin female connector on the end that the hand control plugs into, and an eight pin male connector that plugs into the control box.

Note 28:  This is the new style hand control for chairs that have both heat/massage and an infinite control that lays the back down on the chair.  It is distinguishable, in that it has a 25 pin connector with thumb screws that screw into a control box under the chair.

Note 29:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  This control is nearly identical to our part # 8290 control, but it has a cord with a quick disconnect plug and a nine pin screw on connector that looks like what would screw into the back of a computer.  The back of the control will list a "model # 2802-GT3" on the control.

Note 30:  This is the new style Pride six button hand control used on their newer Infinite Control systems.  It usually has a white tag on the cord close to where it plugs in that says "P/N 7120009"
