If you can pull the blade away from the clipper without pressing the blade release button then either the hook on the Latch is broken (which will mean all blades have the same problem) or the blade socket on the blade may need adjustment or replacement. Please view the part in question Latch
If the blades are new or have been sharpened they may have become misaligned. the upper blade should be no more than 1/16" from the front base plate blade. Another reason could be the tension on the blade. If the screws come loose or if the spring steel weakens or breaks hair will just slide between the blades. With the blades ff the clippers slide the upper blade to one side or the other. It should take around 3 pounds of pressure to push the blade back to center. If it is less or more both can cause the problem.
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.
