Nobody likes to hear squeaking and/or creaking noises, especially in a game room where you are constantly moving around to be comfortable. But the sad reality of many gaming chairs is that they can start to squeak or creak after a while. It’s natural for this to become annoying at some point, but there are many things you can do to prevent this inconvenience. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to prevent your Ranqer gaming chair from squeaking, so you can become the focused pro-gamer you’ve always wanted to be.
The squeaking or creaking may be due to the structure of the chair or to screws that may need tightening. All in all, there are many things you can do to remedy it, and it is worth a try.
Before you tackle the problem, you need to know exactly where it is coming from. A good way to find out is to sit on and off the chair several times, move it around, adjust the backrest a few times and at the same time listen to where the sound is coming from. You can also try moving the chair back and forth and sliding it around the room to find out if the sound is coming from the wheels. You can also adjust the height of the chair to find out if the problem is coming from the gas lift. The squeaking sound often comes from one, or more, of the above parts.
Review the guide again when you have identified the source of the sound. This way you can find out if something was missed during editing. It is crucial that you follow the guide step by step. Once you have confirmed that everything is in the right place, you can proceed to step 3.
Apply some grease or spray to the area of the squeaking or creaking sound. This helps to make the joints smoother and looser. As you know, friction is the main cause of squeaking. If parts of your gaming chair rub hard against each other, the friction can not only make an unpleasant sound, but also cause the chair to crack and wear more quickly.
If the noise still persists, it is possible that the lubrication must be applied deeper into the seat. We therefore recommend that you remove the bolts and screws before applying the lubricant deeper down.
Most gaming chair owners say that the squeaking/crackling noise occurs when they lean back on the chair. Is this the case for you too? Then take your lubricant and apply it to the place where the end of the spring touches the housing.
Spray the lubricant on each wheel. If the noise persists, you may need to buy a new set of Ranqer wheels.
Repairing a gaming chair can be an easy task if the problem is only on the surface. These problems are usually easy to identify and a quick fix like lubricant can fix such a problem. But if you are not sure where the sound is coming from or the above steps do not help, then it is important to stop further repairs as you could cause more damage. In this case, contact Ranqer customer service so they can check if the problem is within the warranty.
It is also important to know that even the strongest and most durable game chair models suffer from wear and tear. Therefore, always handle your gaming chair with care, so that you can use it for a longer period of time.
