I have a Lazboy power lift chair that is giving me shocks.
Bought Fall 2016. It will also start moving all by itself with no one in the chair.
I bought it in Canada.

Comment from La-Z-Boy Incorporated 6/2/2017
We regret that this consumer was not happy with her La-Z-Boy product. In her report, she wrote that the chair shocked her. The chair is covered in foam and fabric, and we have not received other reports of shocks. She also wrote that the chair moved by itself. We surmise that power to the chair was interrupted. If that happens, the chair uses its battery backup to move to an upright position. This safety feature is included so users are not left in a reclining position if they lose power.

We are advised that after submitting this report, the consumer contacted the dealer, the dealer replaced the chair’s electrical components, and the consumer indicated that she was satisfied with the service.
