Horrible!

published

I bought one of these to use with my new born baby. I paid $449.95. It was really nice to use for the first month. From then on it became squeaky and the rocking motion in the chair became 'lumpy' so to speak. Also the padding beneath the buttocks has become quite hard and flat! Also the material has split on the right hand side of the arm rests. The lever to recline the chair is also extremely difficult to use whilst sitting. It is now four months old and I am left with a horrible squeaking chair. I am taking it back to the store to hopefully be replaced. At the least repaired. Would much prefer my money back!!
Swivel and reclining action.

Hi! Depends on where the squeak is coming from I think. But a little grease spray should do the trick. However since mine has never squeaked, I do wonder whether some people are putting them together incorrectly and perhaps not tightening things as much as they should etc. I'd try a little WD40 on a few joints and see if that fixes it, make sure all joints are screwed together properly and see how you go. Hope you can get it not squeaking, because mine has been by far one of my best purchases to date and I have not had a single issue with it :)

Yeah all joints are tight and greased. Its coming from the main pivot point. Thanks fr your answer anyway

Hi
I had tried the good old WD40, as we all know, that stuff fixes just about any squeak, but this one! I left my chair with the shop owner who said he woul try to repair it. Got it home, done the exact same thing after minimal use. In the end I i complained once again, had a brand new replacement base dropped of to me. The owner of the shop I bought from had informed me that WD40 is not ideal (I cant quite remember the reason, it had something to do with the type of lubricant it was). He had explained to me that the chairs are made with little ball bearings.
Hope this helps.
