  1. 1

    Raise the footrest to the upright position.

  2. 2

    Place newspaper on the floor and lay the recliner on its side. Newspaper will protect the floor or carpet from overspray.

  3. 3

    Spray a lubricant on the joints and places that the springs rub against metal. Wipe off any excess spray.

  4. 4

    Return the rocker to the upright position and lower the footrest.

  5. 5

    Test the rocker and recliner and listen for squeaks. Repeat the steps if the noise persists.
