Have you kept the blades oiled well both before and after every use? If so then the next step would be to send the unit in for repair. Please call the Andis customer service department at 1-80-558-9441 to either find a repair station in your state or to get the factory address.

Thank you for choosing Andis.

Andis master clippers lose power


Oil the blades and then adjust them. You will need to add oil while grooming from time to time and then clean & oil them again when finished.

sound like your clipper blades may require sharpening, just remove the blades and send them to a professional company specialising in scissor and clipper sharpening.

Brand new blades #10 in perticular leave stripes


hi, new blades are not the answer try replacing the blade drive assembly which is located at the drive end of the clipper and goes from side to side, as the clippers are used this part will gradually wear in width thus not moving the cutter far enough to complete a cut this will produce snagging in smaller blades and tram lines in larger blades like 7, 5, 4 and 3's. All Clipper Parts are available for these clipper repairs.

How do I adjust the blades or sharpen blades on a Andis T-Outliner trimmer? I have some older blades that work farely better then my newer blades that are dull if you ask me. Is there some way to manuver...


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.
For affordable, professional clipper blade sharpening, I suggest you contact the folks at clipperparts.com

Your clipper moves at just one speed. There is no way to 'speed it up' if it is working correctly.

My andis agc2 clippers will not cut hair now.They are also a little noisy.The blades have been sharpened and are oiled.


Providing the clipper blades have been correctly sharpened try replacing the blade drive assembly which wears in width and can cause numerous problems.

Run but will not cut


Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.

My GTO model Andis clippers blade is not properly aligning..how do I adjust it?


The problem with Andis clippers is that you are not told how to get the most effective job out of you're clippers,i can attest to that because i've repaired and adjusted hundreds of them,every user wants a crisp cut,nothing less, you want find the answer to that in the instructions,so you're encouraged to send the clipper back to Andis company,i did that once just to see if they really understand their own tool,the clipper cut no better upon it's return,it was then that i discoverer the ultimate solution,blades has to be precise,only then will you get a crisp cut,for any type of hair ,so before you get rid of blades,remember 85% of the time the problem is with the adjustment of the blade.
