La-Z-Boy’s recall involves the lift chair’s power supply cover which can crack within the screw housing and break, causing the cover to detach and exposing the power supply’s electrical components, posing a shock hazard to users.
The power supplies affected were sold with Gold Series electric Lift Chairs; the Clayton Luxury-Lift (Model 1HL562) and Power Lift (Model 1ML562), and Luxury-Lift (Models 1LF505 and 1LF819). They were also part of conversion kits for older lift chairs with Models 1LL320, 1LL508, 1LL515, 1LM320, 1LM508 and 1LM515.
The power supply enables the chair’s seat to lift a consumer from a seated into a standing position. The power supply casing is a black, plastic rectangular box measuring approximately 6 inches by 3½ inches by 3½ inches. Only power supplies with LOT #150113 are included in this recall. The model name, model number and lot number are printed on the back of the power supply.
Approximately 210 chairs with the affected power supply were sold in Canada and approximately 2,500 were sold in the United States.
Consumers should immediately stop using the power supplies to power the lift chairs and contact La-Z-Boy for a free replacement power supply. La-Z-Boy will also dispatch a technician free of charge and upon request for any customer who needs assistance.
