The two screws of the blade guide are tightened completely. Adjust the tension between the blade and the blade guide with the large plastic screw on the side of the trimmer (this allows the blade to move rapidly from side to side). I plug it in at this time and when the cutting blade begins to move the clipper makes much louder noise. This is normal but it sounds like it is broken, it isn't. Adjust the cutter slightly past movement. You don't want it to bounce on the guide
The blade (the small one with several holes) gets attached to the slide spring (the thin pieces of metal with a small gap between them), through the two diamond shaped holes, with tension on the slide spring keeping the blade in position. The blade guide, the large plate with only two holes, gets mounted with the two screws. The rough surfaces of both blade and blade guide face each other.

I have the same model. Actually, they're quite old. If you don't have replacement blades already, you can find them at Sally Beauty Supply ( sallybeauty.com for a location near you ) for about $20 for this model. The replacement blade may not be available online, but my local store has it available for purchase. You may find it available at your local beauty supply.
Remove the two screws that hold the 2-piece blades in place. Remove the blades and take note of how they are situated together. Both have flat sides that slide together where the teeth meet. Your replacement blades should be arranged in the same manner when you put them back on the trimmer. First place the smaller blade onto the clip. This is best done by aligning one of the diamond shaped hole with one of the flat prongs, then pushing the balde towards the side to help snap the other prong into the other diamond shaped hole. Once this is securely in place put the larger blade on so that the smooth surfaces touch each other and the holes for the screws are lined up. Replace the screws securely but do not tighten it. Do the same with the second screw. You should just barely be able to slide the larger blade around with some effort. You will need to do this to properly align the blades together. The teeth of both blades should never meet at the tip. The smaller blade should be about 1/16 - 1/8 of an inch away from the tip of the larger blade and should be evenly spaced all the way across the width of the blade. If you have this set properly, go ahead and tighten one of the screws. Check the spacing of the blades again to ensure they have not moved. If they have, you just need to slightly loosen the one tight screw and re-adjust. Tighten the screw back down. If all is aligned propperly, you should be able to tighten the second screw without any problems. Don't forget to lubricate the blades with the proper oil. Check you local beauty supply store if you need oil. That's it. They are now ready to trim.
Conair trimmers are only good for about a year and they are hard to put back once you have messed with them. does your blade pop off or does it have two phillips screws holding it in? If you take the blade off completely you should see two arms that are in there, you have to place the blades back on correctly and hold them together while putting the screws back in. be very careful not to tighten the screws too much. Oil your blades with 3-1 oil and then turn them on. adjust the trimmer and see if everything is level, if it is try cutting withem and see what happens. If the motor sounds good but the blades are pulling your hair rather then cutting it then you need to replace your trimmers because your blades are daul.
You may know the first part of this, but...
Ordinarily, the blades are removed and replaced as follows: There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place. In your case the retaining clip may have broken off. With the blade removed, push that same gun metal colored bar in. You should see the other end of it move in unison just behind the nylon cog that moves the blades when they are installed. Check the tip of that other end to see that the "turned back on itself" rounded portion is there. That's what holds the blade on. If it is missing, you will have to replace the part (the tongue part has to be removed to do so since the retaining clip part is under it, with a small spring holding it in place). A new one can be obtained, I think, at:
You say that you had the blade sharpened. By someone who knew what he or she was doing, I hope. It is possible that whoever sharpened it, reassembled it improperly so that the area where the retaining clip connects is too far toward the rear of the blade (opposite the teeth) and the clip is unable to click over it into place. If you look at the back of the blade, you will see the small slot just about in the center where the nylon drive cog fits to move the blade back and forth when it is mounted. Just below that there is a plate with two tabs extending toward the teeth. The part of that plate (toward the teeth) that has a slight indentation is where the retaining clip clicks into place. If it is not doing so, then either the clip is broken or the blades are not assembled properly. You can try (careful blade assembly is tricky in regard to getting them straight) to loosen the two screws and very carefully move that plate enough (very little should be required) toward the teeth so that the clip will hold. I would make very sure that the clip is not broken before doing that.
Clipper blade sharpeners are availale but the cost of these typically start at about $300 and go as high as several thousand dollars. This makes it unaffordable for home use.

Your clipper moves at just one speed. There is no way to 'speed it up' if it is working correctly.
remove the 2 front screws that hold the blade, remove the blade, this has two small screws losen the screws DONOT NOT remove these screws now mve the smaller blade up or down to the hieght you want. when u finish with your adjustment tighten the small screws replace the blade and center the blade in middle.
YOU HAVE TO OPEN DEM UP. TAKE OUT THE SCREWS ON THE TOP DEN TAKE OFF THE BLADE. ONCE YOU HAVE THE BLADE OUT THERE ARE TWO MORE LIL SCREWS UNSCREW THOSE (NOT ALL THE WAY OFF, JUST ENOUGH SO THAT THE BLADE WILL MOVE) ADJUST THE BLADE HOWEVER YOU WANT. IF YOU WANT IT CLOSE FOR A MORE DETAILED CLOSE LINE (NOT TO CLOSE AS DEY WILL CUT YOUR OR THE CLIENTS SKIN). YOU MUST TRY THEM OUT ON YOURSELF SEE IF THEY ARE TOO SHARP, IF THEY ARE TAKE THEM OFF AND ADJUST THEM AGAIN. EASIEST THING TOO DO IS USE A MIRROR, HOLD THE BLADE AGAINST THE MIRROR DEN MOVE IT AT AN 45 ANGLE DEN TIGHTEN THE SCREWS DER (BARBER TRICK).
