Does anyone know a place that repairs recliners?

The recline/footrest mechanism is not working, so it is not a
cosmetic/fabric issue.

Closer to Fuquay and Cary would be best, but Raleigh recommendations would be helpful also as a backup.

Is it electric or manual? I was able to fix my manual one by reattaching the cable between the pull handle and the opening mechanism. You might look for some YouTube videos. I did that because I didn't have much luck at the time finding someone to repair it. Good luck!

The cable that releases the foot rest probably broke which is very common. You can buy parts online and fix it yourself...I've replaced mine twice already. Make sure you measure the old cable to get the correct length...just be aware that most replacement parts are generic and not manufacturer specific parts.

So much fun to figure things out like that. I just used it to figure out how to get a pfd e-book to my kindle.
Very easy once I watched the Youtube.

I'm curious if anyone knows of furniture repair place as well. Yelp had a few places. Has anyone used any of them. I have a swivel desk chair that broke off its base and would love to keep it.

I had a similar problem and took it apart one and found one of metal rods broke. Took the piece to a welder yesterday who is going to fix it for $20.
