SOURCE: Trimmer won't work
There's a post inside the trimmer that provides a location for counterforce when the teeth move; this is either weak, designed to break after time, or breaks simply because it's not designed to be opened/closed while running. It's relatively easy--if you're patient--to take the razor/trimmer apart and see the problem. A friend and I drilled an appropriately-sized hole through the back of the trimmer at the snapped-post location (which, if one looks at the outside casing of the trimmer is at the bottom of the indented arc), used a dremel tool to cut off an appropriately-sized metal rod, inserted it in the hole, then sealed it with hard (probably model) putty. Years later, it still works fine and--most importantly--I didn't have to buy a new razor.

It is pretty common for the trimmer to get jammed up with hair particles and skin oils which can prevent the blade from moving.
Try running the blades of the trimmer in a shallow dish of rubbing alcohol. Then clean the blades vigorously with an old toothbrush or similar. If the blades still does not move try using the tip of a small flat screwdriver or similar object to push and advance the moveable blade. Repeat running in alcohol and brush clean
If this doesnt work, you will probably need a new trimmer
