Glider Makes a Thunking Noise

When I lean back in the chair while rocking it makes a thunking noise. It seems to be on my right on the bottom part back of the chair. If I sit up straight or lean ahead a bit it glides smoothly. I am just wondering if maybe it's the ball bearings. I tightened any parts that were loose.

The nuts and bolts need to be tightened. Put the glider on a levelled surface and when u sit on it try not to put all Ur weight on one side.

You probably do have a problem with the bearings. They may need lubrication or replacing. I found a very informative article with photos here: http://tomstek.  ing-chairs-tips/

If your glider is relatively new, I'd contact the manufactures and ask them.

Otherwise, it may need to be tighten or oiled up.

We have the same problem. Found that the "thunking noise" is a broken spring that hits against a cross wooden support.


Currently trying to find replacement parts; can anyone help with this?
