Troubleshooting Tips

 

Founded in 1986, Pride started as a company focusing solely on the manufacture of lift chairs. Pride's goal was to offer affordable lift chairs that people would find a stylish complement to their homes as well as a functional enhancement to their lives.  Now, with corporate offices in Exeter, Pennsylvania and subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, Canada and Australia, Pride holds the number one position in sales of power lift recliners in the world.  

Very early on, Pride used Hubbell Special Products motors and hand controls for their lift chairs.  Later, they started using a motor designed exclusively for Pride by Dewert (pronounced Dayvert) Motorized Systems, a West German company.  A few years ago, they changed over from Dewert systems to Okin, another West German company.  We have listed the common parts from both component makers below.   

Below we have listed the most common repair parts used on Pride Mobility lift chairs, along with the factory list prices and our discounted pricing.  Most of these parts are 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 Dewert Parts

Dewert Note 1:  The Dewert Megamat Plus MB1 system was the most common system used in Pride and other brand lift chairs in the late 1990's and early 2000's.  The transformer is attached to the actuator assembly with a wire tie and a Phillips screw.  The only other electrical part is the hand control (usually, our part # 8210 below).  In the early 2000's, Pride replaced this system with their new MBZ set (listed below), with a separate transformer that sits behind the chair, and a Y connector cable that goes from the transformer under the chair to the motor and hand control.  If you have a problem with this MB1 set, you either replace the transformer with the # 8230 external transformer and # 8264 Y connector cable, or if the actuator assembly is the problem, you simply install our part #8205 MBZ motor, and take the transformer off your old motor and install it on the new motor.

Dewert Note 2:  The Dewert Megamat Plus MB1 system with heat and massage worked much the same way as the MB1 set above, but it had electrical connections coming out of the transformer that attached to the vib motors and heat strips.  Pride has not used this system for several years, and their new heat and massage systems aren't compatible with the parts on this chair.   If the motor assembly itself is the problem, you simply install our part #8205 MBZ motor, and take the transformer off your old motor and install it on the new motor.  If you are having problems with the transformer, the only way to keep the heat/massage functions would be to replace the complete motor and heat/massage system with one of the newer models; this would require replacing all the electrical parts in the chair, and it usually cost-prohibitive.  I normally recommend customers with this system to either just try to get the up and down functions working (which is normally what they are most concerned with) and just do without the heat & massage functions, or if the heat and massage is important to them, to put that money toward another chair. 

Dewert Note 3:  The Dewert Megamat MBZ was used in Pride chairs from the early to mid 2000's up until about two years ago, when Pride started using Okin electronics, and it is still used today in other brand chairs.  Changing the complete 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 a single MBZ motor on your chair, this set should solve the problem.

Dewert Note 4:  This is like the MB1 set above, but it is the motor only.  The Dewert Megamat Plus MB1 motor was the most common system used in Pride lift chairs in the late 1990's and early 2000's.  The transformer is attached to the actuator assembly with a wire tie and a Phillips screw.  The only other electrical part is the hand control (usually, our part # 8210 below).  In the early 2000's, Pride replaced this system with their new MBZ set (listed below), with a separate transformer that sits behind the chair, and a Y connector cable that goes from the transformer under the chair to the motor and hand control.  If you have a problem with this MB1 set, you either replace the transformer with the #8230 external transformer and # 8264 Y connector cable (NOTE: if you had heat/massage on your chair. you will not have those functions with the new transformer), or if the actuator assembly is the problem, you simply install our part #8205 MBZ motor, and take the transformer off your old motor and install it on the new motor.

Dewert Note 5:  This is like the MBZ set above, but it is the motor only.  This is a brand new motor direct from the factory, and as mentioned in Note 3 above, it was used by Pride from the early to mid 2000's up until about two years ago.  There should be a sticker on the side of your motor that says MBZ; if so, this is the motor you need.

Dewert Note 6:  The MC1 motor has been used occasionally by various lift chair manufacturers; it is not nearly as common as the MBZ motors above, but there are many in use today.  The motor resembles the MBZ, but the plug from the motor to the connector cable has two prongs that are set at a 45 degree angle from each other.  There should be a sticker on the side of your motor that says MC1.  NOTE: Unfortunately, the MC1 has been discontinued from the factory, and is not available any longer.  However, you can replace this motor with the Okin Deltadrive Motor Set, which can be found by clicking here to go to the Okin page on our website.  The Deltadrive motor will mount in the chair exactly the same way as the MC1.  You have to replace the complete motor set, as the connectors are different in the two systems.

Dewert Note 7:  The #8210 and #8212 hand controls are the most common Dewert hand controls in use today.  The #8210 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8212 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.  The #8212 control usually has a white tag around the wire of the hand control close to the plug end that has "P/N 3544" or "P/N 3547.  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 (#8212), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8210).  The #8212 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…).  If you want to upgrade to the quick disconnect feature, you can simply order the #8212 control and the #8243 extension cable below; this will give chairs with the older style one piece cord the convenience of the quick disconnect setup.  NOTE: If you think you have the #8212 type hand control, then please look at Note 8 below before ordering to be sure you get the correct version for your chair. 

Dewert Note 8:  The #8217 is for Pride chairs made after November 2006 with Okin or FBS electronics.  The hand control looks almost identical to the #8212 above, except it has a six terminal switch inside to accommodate the Okin system.  The way to tell the difference between the #8212 and #8217 is as follows: 1) Look at either the transformer or the motor; if either of these has the word "Dewert" on it, then you need the #8212 hand control; if it has "Okin" or "FBS" on either, you need the # 8217 control.  2) The #8212 control usually has a white tag around the wire of the hand control close to the plug end that has "P/N 3544" or "P/N 3547"; the # 8217 has a white tag that says "P/N KC-7059"

Dewert Note 9:  This is the extension cable only that only the #8212 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.  Note: this extension cable will only work for chairs that have the Dewert electrical system; it WILL NOT WORK with chairs that have the Okin or FBS, or other compatible systems, nor will it work for the # 8217 hand control above.

Dewert Note 10:  The # 8214 and # 8214QD controls are for chairs with heat and massage systems; the controls have a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have two smaller switches (red and white) for the heat and massage.  As with the # 8210 & # 8212 controls in Note 11 above, the #8214 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8214QD 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.  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 (#8214QD), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8214).

Dewert Note 11:  The # 8216 & # 8216QD controls are for chairs with an infinite control system for the chair back; the controls have a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have a smaller white switch  that moves side to side to lay the back down.  As with the # 8210 & # 8212 controls in Note 11 above, the #8216 has a one piece cord that “disappears” down through a hole in the chair and normally plugs in underneath the chair to the motor assembly.  It has a round plug with a 90 degree angle that has five pins in a semi-circle.  The #8216QD 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.  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 (#8216QD), or does the cord disappear down through a hole in the chair (#8216).

Dewert Note 12:  These controls are generally used on only the high-end, very expensive Pride chairs.  Each has a grey control housing, with a black thumb switch for the up & down, and below that are four push switches, a top red switch for heat, and three white switches below that for the massage and intensity.  The # 8218 has nothing above the black up & down switch, while the #8219 has a white infinite button control above the black up/down switch; just compare the pictures to your control to see which one you have.  NOTE: If you have the # 8219, please call us for options on what parts you will need to get the chair back running again.

Dewert Note 13:  PLEASE READ THIS NOTE VERY CAREFULLY, AS THIS CHANGE FROM PRIDE HAS CAUSED A GREAT DEAL OF CONFUSION.  The control pictured here is is the newest style hand control from Pride; it is a grey control, with push buttons for up & down, plus a lock button.  It attaches to a control box , which then attaches to an Okin transformer and an Okin Deltadrive motor.  However, Pride has had many production problems with this setup; it seems either the hand control was failing, or more often, the control box it plugged into went bad.  They tried several different solutions, but finally settled on using a standard Okin quick disconnect control (our part # 6212) and eliminating the control boxWhat you need to do is to completely remove the control box from the chair... First, find the control box; usually, it is mounted behind the chair, or underneath the chair toward the rear.  If you don't see it, just follow either the wire from the hand control, or the wire coming from the transformer; both plug into wires off the control box.  Unplug all the wires coming from that box and remove the box from the chair.  Then, you take the cord coming from the transformer toward the chair, and plug it in to a short two prong cord off the actuator that nothing is currently plugged into.  Then, you plug the new hand control cord to the other cord coming out of the motor.  Everything then is plugged directly to the motor (which is how all the other major chair manufacturers wire their chairs).  With this new configuration, the hand control isn't lighted, but it is a much simpler setup with much less to go wrong with it.  Please understand that you won't be getting the grey hand control that is pictured, but if you take the #6212 that we send you, and you follow the instructions above, this should take care of the problem. 

Dewert Note 14:  This is the power cord only for the older style MB1 transformer, and it will also work with the newer MBZ Ultra control box below.  It is replaced mainly due to either the chair mechanism pinching the original cord, or due to a pet chewing the cord. 

Dewert Note 15:  The #8264 Y connector cable has a dual headed plug with one plug having a round plug with five pins on one plug, and the other plug has a flat blade and a round blade; we sometimes call it a "Mickey Mouse" plug... The cord goes from the transformer up under the chair and connects to the motor and hand control.  Sometimes they can go bad, but mostly it is replaced due to either the chair mechanism pinching the original cord, or due to a pet chewing the cord. 

Dewert Note 16:  The #8265 Y connector cable is much like the # 8264 cable above, except that the round part of the "Mickey Mouse" plug has six pins instead of five.  It is mainly used on chairs with two motors, or a heat and/or massage system.  The cord goes from the transformer up under the chair and connects to the motor and hand control.  Sometimes they can go bad, but mostly it is replaced due to either the chair mechanism pinching the original cord, or due to a pet chewing the cord.

Dewert Note 17:  The #8266 connector cable is only used on motors with the MC1 motor system.  If has a male plug on one end of the cord, and a female plug on the other end that has two prongs that are set at a 45 degree angle from each other.  Mostly it is replaced due to either the chair mechanism pinching the original cord, or due to a pet chewing the cord.

Dewert Note 18:  The SWS48SE is the most commonly used switch on Pride lift chairs.  The switch has three terminals that normally come out to the side of the switch (although some other manufacturers bend them down), and the mounting tabs on the switch housing (the ones that the screws go through) are even with the top of the switch housing NOTE: Before you order the switch, please follow the testing steps on our Troubleshooting Tips page to see if the switch is the problem, and not the wiring in the hand control.  The wiring in the control oftentimes shorts out, and the symptoms are identical to having a bad switch.  Please also remember that if a switch is installed, even for a few seconds, we can't take it back, as the switch terminals will have been scratched up; it has been "used", and no one wants to buy a used part...

Dewert Note 19:  The #6210 and #6212 hand controls are normally used on Okin systems, but they can be used on Dewert systems as well.  Some customers prefer the push button style control instead of the paddle style if they have trouble pushing the paddle.  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…)

Dewert Note 20:  The old style MB1 transformer was discontinued several years ago, when most manufacturers went to the MBZ set with the external transformer.  The MB1 transformer is attached to the actuator assembly with a wire tie and a Phillips screw.   If you have a problem with this MB1 transformer, you can replace it with the # 8230 external transformer and # 8264 Y connector cable, then take old the transformer off your motor and discard it.

Dewert Note 21:  The #8230 Ultra Control Box is used with the MBZ motor used by Pride from the early to mid 2000's up until about two years ago, and it is still used today in other brand chairs.  The #8264 Y connector cable above attaches to the transformer with a dual headed plug with one plug having a round plug with five pins on one plug, and the other plug has a flat blade and a round blade; we sometimes call it a "Mickey Mouse" plug... The cord goes from the transformer up under the chair and connects to the motor and hand control.  NOTE: Please be sure before you order this part that you check to see if it has five or six pins on the round section of the dual headed plug; with five, you would order the # 8230 -  with six, you would order the #8235.

Dewert Note 22:  The #8235 Ultra Control Box is also used with the MBZ motor like the #8230 control box above, but it has a six pin connector; It is mainly used on chairs with a heat and/or massage system.  The #8265 Y connector cable attaches to the transformer with a dual headed plug with one plug having a round plug with six pins on one plug, and the other plug has a flat blade and a round blade; we sometimes call it a "Mickey Mouse" plug... The cord goes from the transformer up under the chair and connects to the motor and hand control.  NOTE: Please be sure before you order this part that you check to see if it has five or six pins on the round section of the dual headed plug; with five, you would order the #8230 -  with six, you would order the #8235.

Dewert Note 23:  The #8236 Metrio Control Box is used only with the MC1 motor system.  The #8266 connector cable above runs from this transformer up to the motor; the cable has two prongs that are set at a 45 degree angle from each other.  NOTE: Unfortunately, this part has been discontinued from the factory, and is not available any longer.  However, you can replace this part with the Okin Deltadrive Motor Set, which can be found by clicking here to go to the Okin page on our website.  The Deltadrive motor will mount in the chair exactly the same way as the MC1.  You have to replace the complete motor set, as the connectors are different in the two systems.

Dewert Note 24:  The #8228 heavy duty transformer is mainly used with Dewert systems on chairs with larger weight capacities that have a dual motor lift system; the heavy duty system is needed when two motors run simultaneously having to pick up greater weight, or if the chair has heat and/or massage.  The transformer is larger than the ones shown above that only handle a single motor; it will also have a red and green indicator light.  The cord that plugs into this unit will have a three prong female connector with a small silver ring that tightens onto the connector.  NOTE: This transformer is no longer available, but we have something that will work to replace this; just give us a call for more information on what you will need to get the chair working again.

Dewert Note 25:    The #8244 is the inner section of tubing that goes in and out of the motor as the hand control is depressed.  Older motors have a plastic connector that threads into the outer end of this tube; this part has the clevis pin going through it that attaches the tube to the chair.  The plastic connector tended to break, so Dewert made the decision to lengthen the tube from its original size, and to put two bronze bushings into the tube that the clevis pin could go through.  In effect, they eliminated the plastic connector.  If you have this type of plastic connector on the outer end of the tube, then the #8244 stroke tube is the part you need; you simply unscrew the old tube out of the outer tube of your actuator, and replace it with this new tube, put the clevis pin in, and you are back in business.  If your motor has the new style tube as pictured, all the above explanation about the plastic outer connector does not apply to you; you would only need to replace this part if your old tube had somehow gotten bent or the inner part of the tube was stripped from the spindle nut inside the actuator.  NOTE: this part has caused the most confusion of any part that we have ever sold...  There is a plastic spindle nut (part #8248 below) 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.  This spindle nut is not included with the # 8244 stroke tube.

Dewert Note 26:  This is the plastic nut (usually white 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 a Dewert motor - it will not fit an Okin motor.  Installation instructions are listed on the Dewert section of the  Troubleshooting Tips page on our website.

Dewert Note 27:  The #8240 clevis mount fastens the base of the MBZ and MB1 motors to the frame of the chair; it is held on to the motor with four screws.  If the screws have not been pulled out of the motor, then replacing the clevis mount is usually all that is needed; if the screws have been pulled out or broken off in the motor so that you can't remove them, then you may need to replace the complete #8205 motor.  If the head of the screw is broken off but the motor housing isn't damaged, you can replace the screw with a #10 wood screw that you can get at any hardware store (the #10 wood screw is the closest thing that we have in the USA to that West German screw).  NOTE: the #8244 will only work with Dewert MB1, MBZ, etc. motors that fasten on with four screws; Dewert MC1, MCZ, etc. motors that have a clevis mount that screw on aren't available; the complete motor will have to be replaced.

Dewert Note 28:  The #8270 recline brackets go on either side of the stroke tube where the tube attaches to the chair.  They should be replaced in pairs, even if only one is broken now; if the chair is used at all while one of the brackets is broken, the other will have had such stress that it will soon break.

Dewert Note 29:   The # 8215 controls are for chairs with both heat and massage and infinite control systems; the control has a large paddle switch for up & down, and below they have a smaller white switch  that moves side to side to lay the back down and two smaller switches (red and white) for the heat and massage.  It has a  quick disconnect plug that normally unplugs in the side or magazine pocket of the chair.  It has a straight plug with seven 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.  NOTE: If you have a control like this with a one piece cord that goes down through a hole in the chair with a five pin plug, just give us a call for more information on what you will need to get the chair working again.

Dewert Note 30:  This transformer was used on several different models of older chairs with a dual motor system.  If your chair has this type transformer, and also has a hand control with four buttons, this transformer will work.  However, if your chair is the heavy duty type with both motors working together to lift the chair, then the newer version of this transformer will not work; You will have to change over to Pride's new style system with the transformer that sits behind the chair, with a cable going to a control box underneath.  Please call or email us for more details on that system.

Dewert Note 31:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  The back of the control will list a "model # 2802HL-PR3" on the control.  It has a one piece cord with a nine pin screw on connector that looks like what would screw into the back of a computer.

Dewert Note 32:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  The back of the control will list a "model # 2802HL-PR3" on the control.

Dewert Note 33:  This is the new style hand control for chairs that have both heat/massage and an infinite control that lays the back down on the chair.  It is distinguishable, in that it has a 25 pin connector with thumb screws that screw into a control box under the chair.

Dewert Note 34:  This hand control is manufactured by Tranquil Ease, and is sometimes used with chairs that have an Okin or equivalent system.  This control is nearly identical to our part # 8290 control, but it has a cord with a quick disconnect plug and a nine pin screw on connector that looks like what would screw into the back of a computer.  The back of the control will list a "model # 2802-GT3" on the control.

Dewert Note 35:  This is the new style Pride six button hand control used on their newer Infinite Control systems.  It usually has a white tag on the cord close to where it plugs in that says "P/N 7120009"

Dewert note 36:  This is the control box that the motors plug into under the chair.  This is for chairs without heat and/or massage that have two motors that pick the chair up & down.  The hand control on these type chairs will have only one toggle switch for up & down (our part # 8210).  If you have a need for a control box with a chair that HAS heat and/or massage, give us a call or send an email.

Dewert Note 37:  This is the control box that the motors plug into under the chair.  This is for chairs without heat and/or massage that have two motors; one motor makes the chair go up & down, and the other motor reclines the back almost all the way to a bed.  The hand control on these type chairs will have one toggle switch for up & down, and another switch below that that moves from side to side (our part # 's 8216 & 8216QD).  If you have a need for a control box with a chair that HAS heat and/or massage, give us a call or send an email.

Dewert Note 38:  This is the control box that is used with chairs that have our part # 8290, 8291, and 8298 hand controls.  It will have the name "Tranquil-Ease" and the notation "FR-LIFT" on the control box.

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 3:  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 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 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 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 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 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:  These 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.

Information Notes on Hubbell Parts

Hubbell Note 1:  This comes as a set, with both the motor and hand control, and fits pretty much any lift chair that has a Hubbell motor; It is best to order this if your chair has anything except a 4 prong connector where the hand control cord attaches to the motor cord (you could always “hard wire” the old hand control to the new motor, but if the motor is bad, the hand control won’t be far behind…).

 Hubbell Note 2:  This is the same as the motor above, but it is the motor assembly only, without the hand control.  As long as you have a lift chair with a four prong connector (the two outside prongs have a flat side so it can’t be plugged in wrong), and the hand control is in good shape, then this motor assembly is the one you need.  NOTE: This model motor won't fit any other application except a lift chair; bed motors, treadmill motors, etc have different mounting that keep this motor from fitting those units.

 Hubbell Note 3:  This hand control comes standard with a four prong connector, and the two outside prongs have a flat side so it can’t be plugged in wrong.  NOTE: The four prongs mentioned here refer to the CONNECTOR, NOT the number of WIRES; don't just see three wires and assume you have a three wire connector... Most newer motors have a four prong connector, but only have three wires attached; you will need to unplug the connectors and count the number of prongs to be sure you order the correct control.  If you have an older model hand control with a three prong connector and the two outside prongs have a flat side, then order the three prong one below.  If it is even older, and it has any other type connector (four prong with flat pins, connector with orange terminals, or even a six prong square connector, etc), then you can still use this hand control; you will need to “hard wire” it to the motor cord with crimp connectors; we have instructions on how to do this in the Hubbell section of our Troubleshooting Tips page.

 Hubbell Note 4:  Chairs with Hubbell motors that have a heat/massage system are sort of rare, but there are still a few out there.  The connections on this control for the heat and massage are the ones most commonly used, but some older chairs will not plug in to these connectors… For those, you will have to “hard wire” your heat and the massage wires to the new control.  The main connector to the lift chair motor is a four prong connector like #4210 above.

Hubbell Note 5:  Before you order either the capacitor or limit switch, be sure to read over our Troubleshooting Tips section for the Hubbell motors; we hardly ever sell either of these parts, so check carefully before you think this might be the problem.  These do go bad, but rarely…

Hubbell Note 6:  We now (finally) have the gear sets in stock for the Hubbell motors; we used to get them directly from the factory, but since it has now closed, we had find another source.  For anyone who has done tool and die or plastic fabrication work, you know that the molds for making the gears are very expensive, and two molds had to be made for each set, doubling the cost.  That extra expense is being passed on to us in each set of gears that is made; that is why the cost is so high (before you call and ask…).  IMPORTANT NOTE: As you can see above, there is more than one set of gears for Hubbell motors (even though most all Hubbell motors say MC-42); the way you tell the difference is in the number of teeth on the gears.  Part # 4220 is mainly for lift chair motors; it has 55 teeth on the gear pictured on the left (the one that goes around the worm screw), and 25 teeth on the smaller inner gear on the one pictured on the right.  The other gear sets shown fit most other type Hubbell applications (beds, treadmills, dental chairs, etc); those sets have different numbers of teeth on the inner gear on the one pictured on the right.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that you check the number of teeth on your gears BEFORE you order a replacement set, because if you order the wrong set and try to install them on your motor, we can't take them back.  For applications other than lift chairs, you may have to replace the gears, as that may be your only option to get the motor back running again; but for lift chair motors, you may want to weigh the cost of a set of gears against the price of a new motor with a six month warranty – the choice is entirely up to you.  We have installation instructions for the gear sets under the Hubbell section of our  Troubleshooting Tips page on our website.

 Hubbell Note 7:  Since the Hubbell plant has now closed, I don’t foresee either the gear housing or the stroke tubes to ever be available; there are just not enough Hubbell motors out there to justify anyone running a mold and going into production for these two parts…
