  1. I am looking for a new remote for a catnapper power recliner that I bought at an estate sale. I don’t see any model number anywhere. The recliner is a dark brown leather upholstered with a side pocket. The remote ha two arrows to manipulate. It is now going down all the way of lays down rather than stopping in a sit up position with the root rest elevated.

  2. I am disappointed in this lift chair, I checked specific measurements the chair seat is 21 wide and 21 deep but was also suppose to be 21” in seat height, which it is not it is only 15” off the floor, making it a little difficult in getting up and using the lift doesn’t lift the chair straight up it lifts it up and forward making me feel as though I am going to fall head first. Also the massage was important to me in the calf and shin and. Can only seem to get it to work on the back, I wanted th3 leg massages for circulation while sitting. The chair is comfortable to sit in, the gel foam makes it very comfortable and I really love the upholstery. I also was happy that it has a battery backup, for power outages, and that it was manufactured in the USA!! But I am tempted to exchange. Maybe customer service will be of some help.
