•This approach can increase the minimum and maximum heights, but only by 1/4 inch or so. 1) Get the cylinder out of the base. (This might not be easy. There are unanswered questions here how to do about this. I might have removed the wheels and then carefully stood on the star, or maybe hammered the cylinder out with a wood 4x4.) 2) Wrap a neat course or two of duct tape around the part of the cylinder that fits into the base. 3) Put the cylinder back into the base. This works because the bottom of the cylinder is tapered. (I invented and tested this fix. The seat wasn't too low, but the bottom of the cylinder was catching the carpet.) •For a bigger raise you'd need to significantly modify the chair, which is technically demanding and risky. Modifications can fail. A chair made taller will be less stable because the base does not get wider. •Tall adjustable chairs are sold for use at high counters. They often include foot rests, so that your feet won't dangle. •If the desk or table wheels that can be removed, it might be easier to make the desk a few inches lower (at the expense of mobility) instead of raising the chair.
This individual wants to remove the base from a recliner, not a tv. Take the back off the chair. Turn it upside down and remove four bolts, two front, two back that bolt the base to the chair on arms. Contact lazy boy first. You can get a new base from them that is stationary and put it in place of the swivel. I have same problem. Swivel is constantly turning and drives me crazy.
The problem is bad communication between the joystick and the conroller or power module. By replacing the jostick cables you will see if that fixes the problem. Check with your provider (where you got your chair) to see if they have an extra joystick cable or can loan you one from a chair that they might have. Now there are 2 cables one from the joystick to the base of the chair and one from the base to the controller either could be bad but try the one to the joystick first Hope this helps
If its a regular office chair then the solution is fairly easy...
Look underneath the chair and there should be a bolt or two screws holding the 90degree arm that the back is attached too. Remove those and you'll have it in two pieces.
Sometimes office chairs have the 90 degree arm attached to the base. In this case you would need to look under the base for the main bolt. Remove that and then the spring inner pole should slide out. From there simply disassemble the reminder bolts.
I always keep track of where the bolts and/or screws go, because when you go to put it all back together it'll make the job much easier. Draw a diagram if needed.
Side note, if you could provide what brand of chair this is I may be able to assist you further, the above is just general knowledge.
The Rascal Turnabout model 312 power chair has VR2 electronics made by Penny and Giles Drive Technology. The VR2 electronics will give you a flash code to indicate the problem with the power chair.
Based on what you are describing, you have a right motor fault.
This means there is a problem in the motor, the wiring, or the connections to the motor.
Let's take each of these in turn.
To make the checks on the various components, you need to remove the seating system.
Unplug the joystick cable leading to the base.
Remove the seating system from the base using the release lever and 1 or 2 people to lift it off the seat post and onto the ground.
Remove the cover from the base.
Check all the electrical connections in the base and make sure they are tight and pushed together making good contact.
Your power problem may be related to the batteries so you can check them while you are in the base. If your 2, U-1 batteries are more than 1 year old and test bad or weak replace them with new batteries. You can have them tested where you buy new ones or find someone with a load tester and you can test them yourself.
If all the electrical connections are tight, or if one of the connections was loose and the contact had backed out of the connector, fix it and you are home free. Test by scooting the seating system over on the floor and plugging in the joystick to test.
If you still have a fault code, find the wiring leading to the right motor. ( You should also check the left motor while you're under the hood because sometimes with mid wheel drive chairs the fault code is reversed when the motors are plugged in the controller). If you have a voltmeter, you can check out the motor. Unplug the motor at the connector. These motors may have 2 different style plugs that will release when you press the plastic lever and wiggle the plug out. Check it at the controller for good contact.
The plug should have 2 large wires for the motor and 2 smaller wires for the brake. The brake should read between 40 to 60 ohms and the motor should read between 0 and 1.5 ohms. If either of these is out of factory spec, replace the motor/brake assembly. If the gearbox is noisy or leaking, replace the motor/brake/gearbox assembly.
With that being said, you need to check and replace the batteries first if they are weak or bad.
If you are handy or know a good mechanic the assembly can be changed in 2 hours including testing and diagnosis,removal and replacement of the assembly.
You need to call Electric Mobility to get the replacement parts 1-800-MOBILITY. Hope this helps.
There are two levers located on the base of the chair on the left and right sides. Depending on the model, they will be located on top of the base on the front section of the chair base, or on the rear or on the lower sides. Most rotate 90 degrees to disengage the gears so you can manually push the chair. Others are moved up and down, or in and out. Return them to the locked position when done.
try pushing the chair. If the chair moves your motors are disengaged. to engage your motors look at the base of the chair there should be a lever possibly 2 push, pull or turn depending and try your chair again if you need additional help you can reach me at 404-966-3734 and i can walk you through it
