Recliner repair

Anyone here have any experience with recliner repair? Sellers left their old reclining sofa and couch for us. We knew the one was a pita to close, but didn’t know the 1 side of couch wouldn’t close at all. The foot rest either won’t shut or takes a lot of force. I tried YouTubing some videos real quick but no help. I don’t see any type of adjustment. I’m thinking springs maybe? But seems odd for all 4 spots to have similar issue. No clue what brand they are.
