Cockpit seats recliner

Can't get EITHER front seat recliner to work when i swivel the chairs (OR when not swiveled). And I feel a motor vibrate on each when i push the switch, but no action

Seems like if a fuse, i wouldn't feel/hear a motor. If mechanical, it wouldn't be both

I'm away from my manuals and came here first with the question before researching

Any ideas?

Are you referring to the foot rests or do you have a special chair that has a full power recline?

I looked up your profile and it says you have a Dutch Star. It would help if this information was included in your post.
So I am assuming you are referring to the foot rest. In which case have you raised the seat before operating the switch? If the seat is at its lowest point the footrest can catch the floor and this will cause the symptoms you mentioned.

I believe the fuses are in the forward electrical bay on the DS

BTW: The easiest way to not forget you coach year/model is to include it with your signature.

Yes I did that a long time ago, and even have "include signature" in my options. Not sure what else I need to do to have it show up?

Happy to receive any suggestions
