Can recliners be adjusted?

To adjust a recliner chair, you can use the adjustment mechanism to increase or decrease the reclining tension. First, test the reclining tension by leaning back in the chair. If it’s too easy or hard to lean back, you’ll need to adjust the tension. When you’ve adjusted the tension, sit the chair upright and test it.

Why Are Lazy Boy recliners so loud?

All La-Z-Boy recliners make this noise because they work on a ratcheting system. The mechanism inside the recliner features a pawl and ratchet assembly. This mechanism allows the chair to recline back and forth. When returning the recliner to its upright position by releasing the handle, it can make a loud noise.
