A massage chair at home solves many problems. It is your one-stop solution for backache, leg massage, compression therapy, and some quality time-off. If you have a massage chair in your home, you know how comfortable it gets. A small quiet massage before sleeping doesn’t only increase the quality of sleep, but it also makes the next day slightly better.
Massage chairs are machines and they too need proper maintenance and servicing. On the off chance, if your massage chair does break down, who is going to repair it? There are two timelines where this could happen:
1. During The Warranty Period
2. After The Warranty Period
Who Would Service Or Repair A Massage Chair DURING The Warranty Period?
You’ll be lucky if your massage chair breaks down before the warranty cover wears out. If it has to happen, it should happen before the warranty period. If anything goes wrong with your massage chair before the warranty period, the manufacturing company will repair it for free.
Let’s take an example.
If you buy a Synca JP1100, you’ll get a Synca Wellness 5 Year Limited Warranty. It means you’ll get 5 years of home servicing, 5 years if any part breaks down, 5 years if any labor is required, and 5 years if any structural framework damage is done. Everything is included in this premium limited warranty. You just have to call and claim your warranty services.
Things To Take Care While Your Massage Chair is In Warranty Period:
- Do Not Open-Up Your Massage Chair Before Warranty: This goes without saying that you should never try and open your massage chair if something is not working. It will be seen as an unauthorized repair. Your warranty can lapse if such a thing comes forward.
- Try All The Features: Make sure to try all the features in your massage chair. The warranty period is the best time to find any hidden glitch. You might even end up getting a replacement, who knows?
- Regular Servicing: You must get professional servicing done once every couple of years or so. If you use your massage chair regularly, the services could be more frequent. Services are either free or extremely cheap before warranty. Once the warranty expires, it becomes three to four times as expensive.

Who Would Service Or Repair A Massage Chair AFTER The Warranty Period?
We don't want it to happen, but it usually does. Any electrical gadget has a life beyond which every day is a risk. If your massage chair happens to show tantrums after its warranty period gets over, there are only two things you can do:
1. Get it fixed through the company
You can still get your massage chair repaired through the company’s service center. Those people will tell you the faults, names of the faulty parts, names of the new parts needed, and an estimated quote after inspection. You can choose to proceed with the action or follow the second way.
2. Get it fixed by a professional massage chair repair service
You can hire a professional massage chair service and get your massage chair fixed. You’ll find plenty of good massage chair service shops listed on Google’s local businesses. Choose the one who has good reviews and real customers’ reviews.
You can bargain the overall cost with a third-party service shop but you can’t do it with the company’s service center. So, this might be an economical alternative for you. However, you can’t be sure about the originality of the parts they’re putting in your massage chair. If you want original and authentic parts, only the manufacturing company can be trusted.
Though we can’t really predict the exact life-span of a massage chair, we have seen customers who have maintained theirs for more than a decade. If you maintain your massage chair like any other electrical and electronic device, the chances of your massage chair showing faults diminish to a great degree. The only sensible option is to call your massage chair’s manufacturing company and let professionals do their job. It would be great if you don’t start unscrewing the massage chair all by yourself.
