Full Answer

The first step to repairing a squeaky recliner at home is to turn the chair over and place it on top of a protective tarp or similar sheet. This helps to catch any dirt or debris that may damage the floor underneath, as well as catching any screws or nails that may fall off. After the chair is on top of the tarp, remove the covering on its underside order to access the chair's springs and coils. Some chairs feature a simple snap system, while others require the use of a screwdriver or hammer to remove the fixtures.

Set the covering and fixtures aside, then examine the reclining hinges and brackets for any loose screws or bolts. Use the appropriate tools to tighten the hardware without making it so tight that the chair doesn't operate properly. Apply a light coating of metal-safe lubricant on the coils, springs and moving parts, then allow it to dry. If the chair continues to squeak after turning it over, it may be necessary to contact La-Z-Boy for additional assistance.
