My lift chair is frozen in the up position. We tried a new control, but that didn't help.

I presume you have check the cord is plugged in where they should be, and a connector did not just come loose on the control or at the motor ?


This is commonly due to fasteners coming loose so the mechanism binds up, fabric/thread caught in the works, leaked down shock absorbers if that type, or burnt out motor if motorized.


I would suggest checking manufacturer website to see if they list repairmen in various areas. If not, find a local store (furniture store, not box store) that sells them - they commonly know of or have a repair person they call on.


If no luck there, a good mechanically minded handyman can commonly solve the issue, but could also botch it is he bites off more than he can handle so that is an iffy issue.


You could also try a medical equipment repair shop, though their rates are going to be high. The type that rents/sells medical adjustable beds and such, as their mechanism are not that different than lift chairs.
