I would call the manufacturer first.


They probably have a recommended serviceman list and/or replacement parts available.

If manufacturer does not list local repair persons, try calling furniture stores (not box stores) about whether they repair them, or know someone who does.

Other alternative - a handyman with electrical skills. The reclining mechanisms are not very complex - so loose or abraded wires, loose mechanism, etc he could probably fix. Dead limit switches or motor he could order from manufacturer and replace - should not need more than a small electrical repair kit and a volt ohm meter to figure out any electrical issues. May well just be a fuse blown because someone tried to force the motor (assuming motorized) or tried to make it keep going when reached limit.

If not motorized, even simpler - probably either broken or loosened bolt, or broken metal bar - both easily fixed or replaced.
