Lazy Boy Recliner Spring Diagram And How To Fix It

Is your lazy boy recliner being not as comfortable as it used to be? This guide discusses how to fix lazy boy recliner spring with diagrams.

People from all over the United States enjoy their lazy boy recliner’s comfort. But! It sucks when the spring on your recliner starts to malfunction, and you have no idea how to fix it. This guide discusses fixing the spring problem with the lazy boy recliner, and I will use diagrams to make the whole process easier for you.

Step One: Prepare materials and tools

Every repair requires tools that will make work faster and easier. I recommend you obtain the following tools for this project:

  • Screwdriver
  • Replacement spring
  • Hammer

Besides, you will need to prepare cardboard tubes, hose clamps, and plywood. You can get them at any shop that sells building materials. Just don’t forget to purchase high-quality materials. It is better to spend some money now rather than it will brake later.

So, I hope that you’ve prepared all tools and materials for repairing the lazy boy recliner spring. Now we can start our repairs.

Step Two: Remove The Upholstery

The first step is to take off all of the upholstery from the chair. This will give you access to the springs and mechanism underneath. Use a screwdriver to remove any screws or nails holding the upholstery in place. Be careful not to damage the upholstery as you remove it. Set aside your upholstery as you have removed it.

Step Three: Inspect The Springs

Now that you have access to the springs take a close look at them. See if there are any that are broken or damaged. If so, then you will need to replace them with new ones. It is not as hard as you could think. You will need to simply unscrew the old springs and screw in the new ones.

If all of the springs seem to be in good condition, you can move on to the next step.

Step Four: Test The Mechanism

Once you have inspected and repaired the springs, it is time to test the mechanism. Sit in the chair and recline back. Does it feel sturdy? Does it spring back into place? If so, then you have successfully repaired your lazy boy recliner.


In the previous steps, we’ve successfully replaced the recliner springs. I hope you’ve managed to do everything correctly, and now you have a fully functioning recliner at your hands. In this section, I want to answer the most frequently asked questions about lazy boy recliner maintenance.

Can I Use An Air Compressor To Inflate The Lazy Boy Recliner Springs?

I don’t recommend you use an air compressor to inflate the armchair springs, and the compressed air will damage the springs and cause them to break. You can use a hand pump as an alternative. However, I recommend you use it with great caution.

How Can I Prevent My Recliner From Breaking?

There are several things you can do to prevent your recliner from breaking. First of all, you should inspect it regularly and look for any damage. If you see any damage, then you should repair it right away. Secondly, you should use only high-quality materials and components. And finally, you should follow the instruction manual that came with your recliner.

The majority of the recliners will serve you from 10 to 15 years if maintained correctly.

How Often Should I Replace The Recliner Springs?

The frequency of replacement will depend on how often you use the recliner. If you use it every day, you may need to replace the springs every few years. However, if you only use it occasionally, you may be able to replace them every 10 years or so.

My Recliner Is Squeaking. What Can I Do About It?

If your recliner is squeaking, then it is likely that one of the springs is damaged or broken. You will need to replace the spring as soon as possible to stop the squeaking.

Can I Repair The Recliner Myself?

Yes, you can repair the recliner yourself if you have some experience repairing furniture. You can find a significant number of different guidelines on my website. However, if you are not confident in your abilities, it is best to leave it to a professional.
