When lift chairs really came “into their own” in the mid-1980’s, Hubbell Special Products was the manufacturer of choice for motorized lift systems. In later years, as the West Germans developed low voltage systems, many of the manufacturers opted to go with the newer technology, although several manufacturers still used Hubbell as their standard option. There are, however, still many thousands of chairs operating everyday with Hubbell systems installed.
NOTE: Hubbell Special Products discontinued operations in October, 2008, so we have a very limited number of component parts – please call for availability. Our MS-1000 replacement motor is being used by a major chair manufacturer, and is a perfect fit for the Hubbell MC-42 in lift chairs.
Listed below are 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 #).

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.
