Stopped working

The speed control pot has become dirty from eating it's own dust. Try squirting electrical contact cleaner into the slot in front of the pot. Guard your eyes!! Rotate the pot from end to end a few times and repeat if necessary. Let it dry before applying power.

Spoolcase assembly

Do I understand right, you unscrewed two screws on the bobbin case holder and lifted it out? Underneath is a black plastic ring (inner guard ring) which sits inside the lower guard metal outer. I guess you undid the bobbincase to clear under it, I have seen machines with a lump of lint under turned into felt from being left so long. While its out, clean the underside and under the inner guard ring with your little brush, chech the bobbin case holder side too, there is a little groove on the side and sometimes tiny bits of thread will be caught in it. The trick is to turn the flywheel until the lower guard cutout open bit is facing 6 on a clock dial, ie closest to you. Now look at the inner guard ring, it has a flat edge cut off, turn it so the cut out faces about 7 on the clock and centred in the outer guard. Now you need to insert the bobbin case, it has a piece with two "beaks" on it, this is the front and these beaks need to sit between two metal parts in front of the outer ring which holds the bobbin case firmly. Put the front part in place and the whole case will fit in perfectly, just give it a little wiggle if it doesnt quite line up. Tighten the two shinny silver screws to fasten in place. There is a little black screw too but dont touch this, its a fine tension adjustment. Hope this assists you, if not post again andI will try to find a photo of the assembly.

Squirrels chew rubber propane hose on my weber grill

cu the same length as gas hose from a piece of garden hose. cut the garden hose lengthwise and put that over the rubber hose. the garden hose is not rubber it has a soft plastic wich they probably will not like the taste of. kind of like the smell of the water when you first turn it on on a hot summer day.

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.

My friend has an Andis master adjustable and the little bracket that holds the two piece head will not vibrate back and forth like it shoud (seems to be stuck) Thanks Ed

I just put the tow piece head back on,oiled it good and turned the adjustment screw on the right side of the clipper to the right until it quit making noise and the clipper head started to work just fine. oiling is important. Ed

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

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