Question about Andis Outliner II Hair Trimmer

1 Answer

I need to set cycle to 50 down from 60 Hz

My power company generates power at 50 cylces. How can the trimmer be adjusted for this.

    Open the trimmer and place a small piece of sponge between the moving blade to restrict movement. This works fine and add or remove sponge for smoother operation.

This unit can not be reset to cycle to 50. To find a unit that could be used at this cycle please call the Andis customer service line at 1-800-558-9441.

    Andis does not recommend the above solution and this will void your warranty should anything happen to the clipper when adding the sponge.

Hi the clock is set for 60 Hertz, What about countrys with 50 Hertz in voltaje?


50 Hz means the electric generator rotates 50 times per second.
And then electricity oscillates or reverses polarity 50 times per second.
Products rated for 60 Hz will not operate correctly with 50 Hz power.

Need to transform 120v power to 240v


Bad news:

UK has 50 Hz electricity, and appliances are rated for local power..
Any appliance made for US market is rated 60 Hz.
50 Hz and 60 Hz electricity are different.

Look at label on your mixer, and then look at labels on local appliances. You will see 50 cycles or 60 cycles. Rarely appliances are labeled 50-60 cycles.
http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity.htm#voltage
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html#Hz
http://waterheatertimer.org/What-is-3-phase-electric.html#120-240

Hz Hertz or cycles or frequency is number of rotations the electric generator turns per second.

Some appliances are rated 50-60 cycles and will work worldwide.
However most appliances are rated 50 or rated 60 but not both.
60 cycle motor will not perform as expected when connected to 50 cycles. And might overheat.
Generally, most motors can be converted to different voltages by taking motor to motor shop (if you can find one these day)
However electronic controls cannot be converted between 120V and 230V, nor will 50 Hz electronics work with 60 Hz power

Sorry Sue.
Buy another mixer.
Business will benefit from surge of consumer buying.

Frequency adjustment or solution


Can you check the RPM of the engine? 3600 RPM = 60 HZ. If it is running around that speed, try a different frequency meter.

If it was producing 180 HZ, it should automatically shut down and show a fault code!

High voltage rpm power generator output


Not sure what you mean "high voltage rpm power generator out", however many people have asked how to adjust the engine for proper voltage output. On generators with~out a voltage regulator, I adjust the engine RPM by using a digital voltage meter that has a Hz setting. Adjust the governor untill the meter displays 60 Hz. With the geneator producing 60 cycles, I know that the engine is turning 3600 rpm (the engine produces max hp when it is turning 3600 rpm). At this point, read the voltage output to verify that the range is between 115 ~ 120. On generators with a voltage regulator, verify/adjust that generator is producing 60 cycles then adjust voltage by turning screw at the regulator (some regulators are sealed with potting compound and can not be adjusted). If your power demands are not that great and you appliance can operate at 50 cycles, adjust governor as needed. Lowering to 50 cycles will also reduce output voltage. Good luck

How to adjust a fuel governor for a 3750 watt coleman generator


With parts list in hand, look at reference #21 governor arm and reference 89/90 adjustment screw. This adjustment will increase decrease engine speed. I would use a meter with hz setting to set engine speed to achieve 60 cycles. Sixty cycles on the meter would indicate that the engine is turning 3600 rpm which is max. If all working correctly, voltage should be around 120v at 3600 rpm and 60 cycles. Good luck

Why do my clocks run fast when my Briggs & Stratton 15kw generator is running?


Electric clocks use synchronized motors that run on 60 Hz AC. The power company provides AC power with a precisely regulated frequency of 60 Hz. That means that the voltage jumps back and forth (positive to negative) 60 times per second. Your generator would do the same thing if it could run at precisely 3600 rpm (that's rev's per minute) - but it can't, because the engine is not that precisely controlled. In your case it tends to run (on average) a little fast. I hope you found this helpful. By the way, in Europe 50 Hz is the norm. If you run a clock designed for 50 Hz on 60 Hz power, it will run 20% too fast! Al K

My generator works but the lights in my house pulse. Any ideas?


You can think of AC power as a sine wave. It goes from 0 to its peak, back to zero, to its negative peak, and back to zero. This is called a "cycle". Your generator puts out a certain voltage (probably 120/240) at a certain "frequency" (probably 50 or 60 HZ). 60 HZ (hertz) means that 60 "cycles" happen each second. Essentially, in one second, voltage falls to zero 120 times. So all lights flicker, even when connected to the utility (just so fast that your eyes can't pick it up).

With that said, how evident is the flickering? Are these lights incandescent, flourescent, HID? How many watts (or kilowatts) is the generator rated to output; how much power is being drawn?

Briggs and stratton 8000 watts generator, the output of the 120 is only 102. How do I adjust the output?


Voltage is adjusted by increasing rpm of engine. Use meter with Hz setting and try to adjust to 60 cycles and check voltage to be at about 115-120. If engine is turning 3600rpm/60 cycles and voltage is very low, then problem is most likely with brushes/ commutator rings, or voltage regulator. Some voltage regulators have an adjustment screw to bring voltage up/down (adjust to proper rpm/cycles first). Good luck

My 20Kva Generac generator run for about 30 minutes and automaticly shut off. The alarm indicated that the generator has over speed. I don't know where to adjust or set the right hz.


The speed should be such that 60 Hz is generated when under load.

The govenor MAY be out of adjustment.

The speed for 60 Hz should be one of the following:

3600, 1800, 900 RPM

I'm reading 130VAC on the output. Can this be


It should read 115v-120v with full load. Yes, you can slow the engine down just a little, depending on the engine, there will be a high rpm adjustment. 130v with full speed, no load, is really not too bad.
