Since its foundation in West Germany in 1986, OKIN has continuously developed to become a byword for quality in furniture actuators and adjustment systems. With its know-how, capabilities and efficiency, OKIN today is a partner for the furniture and medical industry all over the world. Because of their quietness and dependability, most of the major manufacturers of lift chairs either have Okin listed as an optional upgrade for their chairs, or have make Okin their standard lift system.
Listed below are parts for the basic "up/down" lift/recline chairs without heat and/or massage functions. Parts for chairs with heat and massage are readily available (at least for the newer model chairs), but there are so many variations that it would be impossible to list them all here.
Shipping within the continental USA is included in the prices quoted. We stock these parts in our warehouse for quick shipment. If you have any questions on whether a particular part will fit your needs, please let us know. If you need something not listed, either call or E-Mail us. Either way, we will need the chair manufacturer, serial #, detailed description of part needed, etc and we will do the research and get back with you promptly (you may have to look on the "law tag" sewn to the bottom of the footboard for the chair manufacturer, and on the frame behind the chair for the serial #).
Free Shipping in the Continental USA on All Lift Chair Parts (see Below)
Below we list the way we normally ship our parts; we don't have to spend the extra to ship the most critical parts by FedEx and Priority Mail (none of our competitors do...), we just feel that its the right thing to do... Most folks that need lift chair parts need them right now, not several days or weeks later. We hope you take this in consideration when you decide where to buy the parts you need... However, if you need them even sooner, just give us a call and we can figure the shipping charges for Express Mail or FedEx Express; we only charge you what the delivery companies charge us - we aren't looking to charge outrageous shipping charges to people that are already in a bind and need some help...
A personal note to our parts customers: I realize that for most of you, repairing lift chairs is not your primary occupation; many of you are attempting this for the first time. I just want to assure you that the vast majority of the parts we list here can easily be installed by almost anyone (please keep in mind that the last statement was made by a service technician that made his living by doing service calls...) I also want you to feel comfortable doing business with us and our company. We invite you to click here to read about us and the way we try to do business. You can also click here to read some of the testimonials that folks have sent in after they have completed their repairs. If you have a question about our parts warranty or parts return policy, you can click here to go to our Guidelines page. I invite you to take a look at the information on the links above, and then you can make a decision if we are the kind of people that you want to do business with.
A note about ordering parts online: We have had many customers who call in to the shop to place their parts orders. When I ask why they called in to order, they normally say that they thought they would get it quicker if they called it in. Actually, the opposite is true: When parts are ordered online through our shopping cart, we can download the order in our accounting system and get the parts shipped out quickly. In fact, most online orders sent in by 10:00 CT will be shipped out the same day. Orders that are called in have to be manually processed, and it normally takes an extra day to be input and shipped. While we truly don't mind if you call in with questions, etc, please don't call in your order expecting to get it quicker that way. One exception: If you need the part overnight, and you are willing to pay the shipping expense for Express Mail or FedEx, you can all in (by 1:00pm CT) and most orders can be shipped out that day.

Information Notes on Okin Parts
Okin Note 1: The Deltadrive set is the most common Okin electrical setup used in lift chairs today. Purchasing this set is a good choice if you don’t know – or want to know – what the problem with your chair is, you just want it fixed the first time. Or you may just want to update your chair to the latest electronics and head off any problems. Either way, if you presently have the Deltadrive motor on your chair, this set should solve the problem.
Okin Note 2: The Betadrive set is very common in Berkline chairs, but other manufacturers have used them from time to time. The decision to replace the complete set is the same as for the Deltadrive in Note 1 above. NOTE: Please be sure that the motor on your chair has a shaft about 15”-16” long, and has a white moving block. If your motor is all black with a black block, this motor will not work… Please call for options if you have the black block on your motor.
Okin Note 3: The #6200 motor is a brand new motor direct from the factory, and as mentioned in Note 1 above, is now the most common Okin motor used in lift chairs. There should be a sticker on the side of your motor that says Deltadrive; if so, this is the motor you need.
Okin Note 4: The #6201 is the Okin motor that Pride is using on their newer model chairs. It has proven to be one of the most durable and reliable actuators ever used on lift chairs. It is possible for this motor to go bad, but in reality, unless you hear the motor running or gears grinding but the actuator is not moving, it is very unlikely that this motor is the problem in the chair. The great majority of the time, you will find the problem is in the hand control, especially if your chair has the #8213 hand control on the Pride page on our website.
Okin Note 5: The Betadrive motor shown here has a shaft about 15”-16” long, and has a white moving block. If the motor you have is all black with a black block, this motor will not work; please call for options if you have the black block on your motor. Also, the #6205 motor is designed for lift chairs only; if you need a motor like this for a power recliner or theater chair, please give us a call (most of the time, theater and recliner chairs use a faster geared motor than a lift chair; we have those in stock also, although they aren’t listed on the website to reduce confusion (I hope…).
Okin Note 6: The #6210 and #6212 hand controls are the most common Okin hand controls in use today. The #6210 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to a short cord off the motor. It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle. The #6212 has a quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair. It has a straight plug with five pins in a semi-circle, and it plugs into another cord that is already in the side pocket of the chair; most have a small plastic lever that folds over the plugs to lock them into place. If you have a chair with an Okin system and it has a hand control like the one pictured, either one of these will work, as they are both wired the same. The way to tell which one you need is to just follow the cord from the part you hold in your hand down past the coiled part, and see if there is a straight plug a few inches from the coiled part (#6212), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#6210). The #6212 is the newer design, and was developed as a way to easily change the hand control without having to turn the chair over. Another selling feature is that if you have grandchildren over and they like playing on the chair, then you can easily unplug the control so they won’t play with it (of course, it’s OK with us if you let them play with the chair – grandkids are great for our business…)
Okin Note 7: This is the extension cable only that the #6212 hand control plugs into in the side pocket of the chair, and goes on down to plug into the short cord off the motor. Normally, the only reason to replace this cord is if it has gotten pinched by the chair mechanism.
Okin Note 8: This is a very common hand control used on more expensive La Z boy lift chairs. However, be sure that: 1) you have a La Z Boy chair, and 2) check that your old hand control has a sticker with the number 11540 on the back. Please give us a call if you have this type of hand control, but you don’t have a La Z Boy chair… We probably have another control that will work, but if you don’t have a La Z Boy chair, this control won’t work.
Okin Note 9: This is also a common hand control used on La Z boy lift chairs. However, be sure that: 1) you have a La Z Boy chair, and 2) check that your old hand control has a sticker with the number 11620 on the back. La Z Boy has used controls that look very similar to this control, but it has different numbers on the back, like 75000208-01 and 02. Please give us a call if you have this type of hand control, as the #6219 will not work with those controls.
Okin Note 10: This is the most common Okin transformer used on both lift chairs and some power recliners. If your chair has a cord coming out from under the chair that plugs into the transformer with a plug that has a flat blade and a round blade, this is the transformer you will need. Sometimes, transformers have the numbers SP2A or SP2B on them; if yours has that designation, then this #6232 is the one you need. The #6242 power cord below is included with the transformer when you order it.
Okin Note 11: This is the power cord only for the # 6232 transformer above. NOTE: Don’t order this cord if you don’t also already have a #6232 transformer… Many folks that are missing the transformer off their chair (usually due to the chair being moved, put into storage, etc) mistakenly think that they only need the power cord to get their chair going again, when what they really need is the transformer… The cord coming from the chair with the small flat blade and round blade plugs into the transformer, and then the transformer plugs into the wall.
Okin Note 12: This transformer is mainly used by Berkline and La Z Boy, and also by other smaller manufacturers. It has a female plug on the output side that takes a three pin male connector.
Okin Note 13: This transformer is almost always used on Berkline chairs, and with other manufacturers with some type of heat and/or massage system. It has a female plug on the output side with a six pin connector.
Okin Note 14: This transformer is for United Kingdom use only; it will not work for chairs located in the USA! It has battery backup, and the receptacle for the plug coming from the chair that has a flat blade and a round blade.
Okin Note 15: This transformer is for European countries only; it will not work for chairs located in the USA! It has battery backup, and the receptacle for the plug coming from the chair that has a flat blade and a round blade.
Okin Note 16: This transformer is for Australia only; it will not work for chairs located in the USA! It has battery backup, and the receptacle for the plug coming from the chair that has a flat blade and a round blade.
Okin Note 17: This is the cord that goes from the transformer to the motor; it has a male plug that has a flat blade and a round blade that goes into the transformer, and a female plug on the other end with a receptacle for that same flat blade and round blade.
Okin Note 18: This cord is also like # 6240 above, in that it goes from the transformer to the motor. However, it has a rectifier built into the cord that changes the voltage from AC current to DC current. It is mostly used on chairs with a Betadrive motor; many of those chairs have an AC transformer (it won’t have a battery backup); the Betadrive motor needs DC current, so that is the reason for the rectifier. If you change transformers to the newer #6232 switchable AC/DC transformer, you will not need this type cord – you can use the #6240 above.
Okin Note 19: This is also a cord like the ones above that go from the transformer to the motor, but this cord has a three pin male plug that plugs into the transformer, and a female plug on the other end that takes a flat blade and a round blade plug from the motor.
Okin Note 20: This is the plastic nut (usually either white or yellow in color) that is inside the actuator tube (where you can’t really see it). The worm screw goes through the middle of the nut, and the nut has threads on the outside that the stroke tube screws onto; as the motor turns the worm screw, the nut rides up and down the worm screw, pushing and pulling the stroke tube and making the chair go up and down. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please check the manufacturer of your motor (Okin or Dewert) before ordering this part - the part shown here will only work in an Okin motor - it will not fit a Dewert motor. Installation instructions are listed on the Okin section of the Troubleshooting Tips page on our website.
Okin Note 21: This is the white plastic moving block (about 3” X 4”) that the chair mounts to on a Betadrive system (if you have a black block, you will need our part # 6253 below); as the block moves up and down the stationary motor shaft, the chair goes up and down. There are primarily two white moving blocks used in the USA; the difference is in the thread size in the block where the worm screw goes through the center of the block. The way to tell which you need is to look for the slots in the aluminum shaft (one on the top and one on the bottom of the shaft); shine a light into the slot and see the black worm screw. Using a tape measure or ruler, pick out a tread on the worm screw, and count how many threads (or turns) there are to the next inch on the ruler… It will be either 6 threads (our part # 6254) or 9 threads (our part # 6256) per inch. The 9 thread per inch size is by far the most common, but there are enough 6 thread blocks in use to make sure that you make the effort to get the right measurement. It is very important that you check the thread size before you order a moving block, because if you order the wrong one and try to install it on your motor, we can't take it back. Installation instructions are listed on the Okin section of the Troubleshooting Tips page on our website.
Okin Note 22: This black moving block fits An Okin Betadrive motor used on La Z Boy chairs. The motor for this block will have the notation 1.07.000.064.30 on it. Installation instructions are listed on the Okin section of the Troubleshooting Tips page on our website.
Okin Note 23: This is the stroke tube (the metal tube that goes in and out of the motor assembly) with a metal connector (our part # 6252) included. Note that the tube has left hand threads; it tightens by turning it counterclockwise and loosens by turning it clockwise. This part includes the tube and the connector on the end; it does not include the spindle nut #6258 inside the actuator arm.
Okin Note 24: There are the connectors on the end of the stroke tube; a clevis pin goes through this piece and the chair lift mechanism to hold that end of the motor on the chair. The metal connector (#6252) and the plastic connector (#6250) are interchangeable; most older Deltadrive motors used the plastic connector, but if you order a new Deltadrive motor, it will come with the metal connector. The plastic one is not all bad, however, if the person using the chair has a tendency to hit the wall with the back of the chair, then not knowing it is against the wall, keep holding down the hand control. “Something has to give” in that situation, and sometimes the plastic connector will break, saving something worse happening… It’s not designed to break, but sometimes it just works out that way.
Okin Note 25: These are recessed controls that are normally found in power recliners and theater chairs... They are built into either the arm of the chair or sofa, or under the arm on the side of the chair. There are several different styles of these recessed controls, but they all have a round five pin connector on the end of the cord. The #6290 has a rectangular housing, and is held on by two screws (the screw holes measure 3 1/2" center to center); the #6292 has an oval shaped housing, and is also held on by two screws ( the screw holes measure 2 5/8" center to center); the #6293 has a round housing with a diameter of 2 5/8".
Okin Note 26: This DeltaDrive motor is primarily used in the heavy duty dual motor lift system of Golden's PR-502, although it has been found on other manufacturers equipment as well. It looks much like the #6200 DeltaDrive above, but it has only one cord coming off the motor, and that cord has a round plug with seven pins. It plugs into the chair's control box.
Okin Note 27: This OmegaDrive motor is used for the back recline feature primarily on Golden's PR-502 heavy duty chair, although it has been used on other manufacturers equipment as well. It will have Okin's part # 1.43.000.117.30 on a sticker on the motor housing. It has only one cord coming off the motor with a flat pin and a round pin, and it plugs into the chair's control box.
Okin Note 28: This OmegaDrive motor is used for the back recline feature primarily on Golden's Relaxor 755 & 756 series chairs, although it has been found on other manufacturers equipment as well. It will have Okin's part # 1.43.000.223.30 on a sticker on the motor housing. It has only one cord coming off the motor with a flat pin and a round pin, and it plugs into the chair's control box.
Okin Note 29: This control box is used on several model chairs, although mainly found on Golden's PR-501 & 502 heavy duty chairs. It is needed to run both the lift motors together.
Okin Note 30: While not an Okin part per se, this style transformer was used in many chairs with Okin electronics to power the heat and massage functions if present. Chairs that had this system almost always had two separate transformers; this one for the heat/massage, and another to make the chair go up & down. Please Note: To determine whether you need the older style #6234 or the newer style #6236 transformer, you need to take a look at the plug coming out from your chair that will plug into the transformer; Specifically, look to see if it has a small pin in the middle of the plug. If it has a small pin in the middle of that plug, you will need the #6234; if it doesn't have that small pin, you will need the #6236.
Okin Note 31: This transformer is mainly used in power recliner and power theater chairs. It is very similar to the 6232 transformer above, except on the output end... The 6232 output connection is integrated into the plastic housing, whereas the 6233 has a cord coming from the housing that the flat blade/round blade connector plugs into. The 6233 also does not have an emergency backup system.
Okin Note 32: This is just as pictured; it is only used on Golden chairs designed with an infinite position back. Please note that the chair has to be designed for the infinite position function; just ordering this control and installing it on a standard chair will not give the chair the infinite position function.
Okin Note 33: After so long a time, we now have these recessed controls in stock. These are used on Berkline and other manufacturers power recliners and theater chairs. As shown, they have a telephone type plug for the recessed control, and it plugs into our part # JLDP power supply.
Okin Note 34: We - finally - have these power supplies in stock. These are used on Berkline and other manufacturers power recliners and theater chairs. As shown, they have a telephone type plug for the recessed control (our part # JLDK), and a two pin plug for the actuator. Also, this part will replace the power supplies on the units with CIAR parts (even though it doesn't look anything like the CIAR units).
Okin Note 35: This actuator normally fits on Berkline and other manufacturers power recliners and theater chairs. It has a two pin white connector that plugs into our #JLDP power supply. Also, this part will replace the actuator on the units with CIAR parts
Okin Note 36: This is a heavy duty transformer used by a few of the chair manufacturers. It has a female five pin plug, although many times the manufacturers use a three pin plug from the chair to the transformer.
