Pour some shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of this a few times to get the oil down into the cutting blades.

I am having trouble with loose stitches and my fabric is not being cut by the blade. I have t Cleaned my machine , rethreaded me serger a few times , I have adjusted the tension , I am traveling and I do...

try changing the needles
check the blade to see if it's loose or misaligned or dirty
try wiping the blades,, try using silicon spray or alcohol on them
to clean them.
after you check the blade to see if there loose or not,,
lay a single thread across the lower cutter blade and handwalk the needle through a stitch cycle watching that thread across the knife blade. If the thread cuts clean the blades are sharp. If it moves
forward on the blade, the softer blade is probably dull enough that it needs replacing

Clippers have suddenly stopped cutting and seem to pull at the hair

Generally removing the two screws.. on the blade foot (don't do this over the sink unless the drain is closed!).. and taking the blade apart.. cleaning the trimmers with a small brush.. apply grease in the blade groove.. reassemble

Usually it's best to put those two screws back just get them in lose.. not quite snug..set the blade upside down on a flat it pushes the blade back away from the cutting end..level..then tighten those screws while you are pushing or holding down on the clippers cutting edge against the flat surface/table. ... oil the blade with the proper oil or a light mineral oil.

This usually will get them back to cutting properly..the blade should be oiled prior to each use...about two to three drops right along the visible part..or a light spray also hair should be clean.. dirty hair does not cut well at all..and the clippers will tug and pull rather than cut cleanly.

Lastly..if they see a lot of use. might be blade replacement time..

Best of luck!

It's not cutting anymore, my husband greased it and cleaned it but it's not cutting, barely grazes the top. how do I know if the blades are sharp anymore. we have only used it 2-3 times on our cocker...

If you have another clipper, you can test the blades out on them to see if your blades are sharp. As for the blades not cutting on your clipper it could be a couple things. Your blade drive could be worn and not allowing the cutter blade to travel far enough each way to make a clean cut. Another thing to check is that your blade latch is not broken. This is the black hook by the blade drive on the clipper. If the blade latch is broke, the blade won't stay tight up on the clipper. Thus the blade will act like it is dull.

I used the clippers to cut my dog... once finished I took it apart to clean out excess lubed parts and reassembled...I have done this many times before with no problems... I begin cutting and the blades...

Check your blade latch is working properly. If you took your clipper apart and your blades are not cutting it is one of 2 things. Your blade drive is not assembled properly or your blade latch is not holding the blade on the clipper. If you took your blade apart, check the blade alignment. The cutter blade needs to be slightly behind the comb blade.

How do i get blades closer on the pivot pro t liners

You really can't move the cutting edge on any andis trimmer blades without throwing them out of spec. I say this to say that if you try (and the blades are not precisely set) it will scrape and cut the skin when you attempt to use them. They are factory set for optimum cutting. If you have found that they aren't cutting as closely or as cleanly lately, it just might be time to replace the blade entirely. I have a set of those, and a styliner II, but I prefer the cutting power of my T-Outliner over all.

Blade misalignment

The 1590, like several Bosch jigsaws, has a selector switch to choose the type of cutting action. You have to choose the appropriate cutting action, either straight or oscillating, to accommodate the material you cut and the blade you cut with. For instance, if using a very slender blade for clean curved cuts in wood, a slight oscillating motion ( setting II or III) reduces friction on the blade. 
If you choose the straight cutting action you get maximum accuracy, but drastically increase the friction because the blade is held firmly to the roller bearing.  A slender blade can handle that for brief periods, (say... less than thirty seconds) in soft, thin wood with a straight cut. In hard woods or engineered wood products ( plywood, MDF etc.) the thin blade will heat up and bend. 
You can reduce friction by choosing an oscillating cutting motion, or you can use a larger, sturdier blade. The "Aggressor" blades do not cut as smoothly as the "clean" blades, but they cut faster and are stronger. To cut thick wood ( 4x4 ) or a long cut in engineered material, that is the blade I use. Select number III or number II for 'type-of-cut' and use a bigger blade. See if that stops the "bucking."
Good luck!

Oster Golden A5 Clippers will not cut

These kinds of clippers are fussy about oiling and dirt. It is essential that the blades be spotless and well oiled FREQUENTLY. Oil after every haircut always. Also, if there is not enough tension on the blades, the hair will slip between the blade and blade guard, getting caught and damaging the blades. Blades should be screwed on tight. Also, it may be time to replace the blade if nothing else helps. These blades do not last very long in my experience especially if not carefully cleaned and oiled.
