You will need to remove the rear tires and front casters. If you look at the front caster fork there should be some extra holes where you can re-position the caster wheel. Likewise on the hole where the rear tires mounts there should be a hole above it where you can re-mount the tire. So just move the caster and wheel up to the next hole. If there are no holes to move up to then you cant lower the chair. The only other options would be to install a drop seat which you`ll have to purchase from a dealer or install smaller wheels and casters. So, for instance,say you have 8" casters and 24" wheels you would then install 6" casters and 22" wheels. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.

Hope you have had this fixed by now. But in case not and you are not able to use the chair.
If the chair still drives it's not batteries. The toggle switch box should be ok if there is no visable damage to it. Bad connections of the wiring from the toggle switch box to power or the recline or tilt motor should be inspected. A electronic tech is needed for most electronic failures.

The best thing to do in this situation is to call the vendor and have them repair it under warranty. There should be no charge for this service since the chair is brand new.
There are some checks you can make to avoid a service call. You have checked the batteries and hopefully the chair is plugged into the wall outlet. It is possible that something got disconnected under the chair. To check this you need to flip the chair over on its side or on its back since the leg rest scissor mechanism is extended. Look for any plugs that have come apart at their connections. Check for a pinched or binding scissor mechanism or tilt frame parts.
You should not attempt this at all if you cannot safely move a large piece of furniture. Perhaps a friend or relative may be able to help.
Insist that the vendor honor their warranty commitment ASAP. If you paid with a credit card, you should contact your credit card company to put the amount in dispute if the vendor is unresponsive. Hope this helps.
And you can troubleshoot with the below instructions if it with also help
things you'll need:
* Pride chair Owner's Manual
Look at the chair's electrical plug, as the chair most likely became unplugged or the plug is not fully connected to the outlet. If this is the case, securely reconnect the plug.
Check the chair's connections. The electrical connections under the chair could be loose or connection cables could be pinched or bent. Tighten loose electrical connections with a small screwdriver and straighten bent or pinched cables.
Check the chair's transformer, motor and relay box under the chair as a malfunction in any of these could cause the chair to stop working completely. The hand control used by the operator to change the chair's position may also be malfunctioning.
Test the chair's wood frame, bolts and lift frame. Loose wood frames or bolts, overly tight bolts or the lift frame rubbing against the wood frame will all cause the chair to squeal.
Lay the chair on its side and check the wood frame and t-bracket. If the wood frame is rubbing against the lift frame or the t-bracket is cracking, you could hear popping noise. The t-bracket is the metal frame on the underside of the lift chair.
Check the dual motor timing if the chair will not recline all the way. The motors' timing could be off which would stop the chair from completely reclining. Put the chair on its side and remove the motor and plug it in. Use the hand control to turn the motor on and let it run until it stops on its own. Screw the push tube, located to the right of the drive tube where you just removed the motor, until you feel it bottoming out. Turn the push tube back two turns and grab the push tube. Turn the unit on with the hand control and allow the push tube to move away from the metal casing. Push the pin at the back of the push tube and reinstall the motor. This should re-time the motor.
Look at the wood frame, seat foam, leveling legs, motors and bolts if the chair is crooked. The wood frame could be twisted, the seat foam may be broken or misshapen, the leveling leg may need adjustment, the motor could be timed incorrectly or the bolts could be loose. If all looks in order, make sure the ground under the chair is level.
Unplug the chair before you begin fixing the chair.
Restore power to an inoperable lift chair. Ensure the circuit breaker box is connected to the electrical outlet. Make sure the external transformer is plugged directly into an electrical outlet.
Fix a Pride lift chair that only operates in one direction. Use a cotton swab to remove dust and debris from the toggle switch on the hand control. Flip the toggle switch back and forth to loosen any remaining debris which may be causing an obstruction.
Fix inoperable heat and massage features. Check the LED lights on the hand controls; the LED display is not lit, hand-tighten the connection between the hand control and the lift chair. Make sure the the heat and massage units are properly connected to the back of the lift chair.
