  1. Medlift special orders (other than leather) are extremely slow, order in July, delivery by December, not much communication, I asked for updates every month (about 7 emails) they acknowledged 3.

    Almost to the point that you feel scammed. When received the chair was fine, But if I order something, I just want a realistic date of delivery, I was always told that they would get back in 12-24 hours, never happened! REMEMBER THESE STATEMENTS,

  2. I have a lift chair 5555 STCH-4VH.The lift is no longer working. I don’t know if it is the motor or the mechanism button that is the problem. The buttons for lifting and leaning up or down is no longer lit up. The mechanism for heating and vibrating is lit and it is still working. The store where I bought this chair told me the Company was out of business and they can’t get parts. If you know of a place where I can find someone who knows how to find and fix my problem, I will appreciate the information. The parts I believe are still under warranty. I have replaced batteries in the 9V Battery Backup and that apparently is not my problem with the chair. I purchased this chair in 2018.
