Since Berkline is no longer around does anyone have a line on these motors. I have one that went bad because the customer uses the damn chair as a bed. I've emailed the Chinese manufacturer but I'm not holding my breath.

I guess you might have to pull the motor out to find a match. Maybe some specs are on a visible plate on the motor, so you don't have to pull it.

An extensive search a few years ago came up with only Firgelli. I've got a friend who makes seating, and I'll ask him.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Have you googled 'linear actuator' to see what you'll find? There are hundreds of different kinds and they should be easy enough to retro-fit.

Their linear track actuators look fairly similar. I will see if I get a response from the orginal manufacturer and if not I will be trying Firgelli.

Thanks

We have had the same issue on every set of chairs we recieved from them after they annouced that they were closing the doors. At least one motor has been intermittent each time. We were told to tape the connection because they become loose. Last batch of these chairs are going into a job next week......fingers are crossed.

Call Rick Neverdousky at Continental Seating and tell him I referred you.

I am sure he would be happy to sell you the parts you need to make your client's chair functional again.

Yeah, I hope that's a good lead. My friend says, as you know, that those actuators came from China. He then only has this to offer -- others won't fit. Imagine that -- he doesn't seem to know just how custom we can be!
