You may have to respond back (using the Answer This Question yellow button right below your question), because I am not getting the whole picture here. Sounds like you tightened your rocker or rocker/recliner (power lift type maybe ?) but the next time you tried to use it the motor did not work?

1) may be you overtightened it, and just loosening it a bit will allow the motor to work right

2) overtightening may have tripped a built-in thermal overload breaker on the motor - loosen the pivot back up a bit, unplug chair and check on the motor (likely will have to turn chair over) to look for a small red button on the motor. Will typically say "Push to Reset" or such - push in till it clicks, set chair back up, plug back in and try again.

3) if you have a remote control on a cord, make sure it did not get unplugged or partly disconnected while tightening the chair pivot.

4) or, overtightening may have burned out the motor - in which case you would need a Furniture Repair and Refinishing company, or a specific local vendor who services that make - try manufacturer website for local repair company name and address.


If you mean a baby rocker, if battery operated check for batteries being securely in place (may have gottne loosen up in the tightening process), and check it rocks freely - might have tightened it too much. Otherwise, if battery operated, batteries may have just chosen that moment to go dead. Try a new set of batteries to see if that is the problem.
