My lane recliner will not go all the way back and the seat sits a little higher than the seat next to it.

Is there an adjustmet? Is there anyplace to get diagrams or schematics for recliners?

Can you be more specific about what you mean by "will not go all the way back"? I am a recliner repairman and an authorized Lane specialist.

When I push the recliner back it becomes very difficult and it stops before it will completely recline. Also the seat cusion sits up a little highr than the cusion next to it which would idicate to me that there is an adjustment needed.

How old is the unit? Can you locate the style number - it should be on a tag under the footrest. If this is a sofa/loveseat it will be under the left side facing unit's footrest.

Curious - what state are you in?

As droseman asks: How old is the unit?

If you bought it recently, my first order of business would be to try and get my money back.

Failing that, I'd try for an exchange at the store.

Next: see if it's under warranty. If so, perhaps the mfr will send someone out to repair. It is worth asking!

Personally, who wants to mess with repairs on a recliner? If you can pass the responsibility onto the manufacturer, so much the better. In fact, they ought to know about this problem.
