Chair drops when I sit on it. How can I have it hold its height when I sit on it?

Not anyway safely. The telescoping mechanism is shot, replace it before someone gets hurt.

I bought a TP 4000 chair at Staples today and when you sit in it you immediately sink like the hydraulic cylinder that allows you to adjust hieght is bad. Any ideas??

It could be faulty, but there is a arm under the seat that should allow you to adjust it, exercise that lever, perhaps the valve is stuck.

What can be doene with our executive office chair as it will not remain in the raised position. After raising it, then sitting, the chair slowly sinks down? What is the problem or what can be done.

The hydraulic gas lift is broken. If you want to fix it, you will need to find/buy a replacement. This is a common problem that happens with most all chairs, even if they are rated for heavier weight/long term use, they still do not seem to last more than 1-2 years of use at the most.

Office chair lowers on its own

It will be one of two things, either the gas strut is no good and in this case you might as well get a new chair. Or the lower lever is stuck in the " lower" position, if this is the case freeing it up should cure your problem

Replacing the rear pads & rotors but the calipers won't release from the old rotor.

You probably have the pistons in the calpierts jammed by corrosion build up from when you pushed the piston back in to fit the new pads. When you put your foot on the brakes this corrosion has jammed the piston in the full out position and as there is no return spring action on calpiers the pads stay jammed in the on position. Only fix is to replace calpiers or have new pistons and seals fitted.
