Have you been oiling the blades? If you ran out of oil you can use any light machine oil available at any hardware store. If you feel comfortable opening the unit you will be able to see the electromagnet inside and watch what is going on. If all else fails Buy a new set (the exact kind) and keep the receipt. Swap them out and return it from the store where you purchased it. You paid good money for them and they should not have died so quickly. The store will get full credit for it when they return it to the manufacturer so it is not that morally bad. The manufacturer should bare the burden because of the poor quality control that allowed your clipper to die in such a short period of time. Hope you find this solution helpful and the last option is a surefire fix...

Q. How do I align my blades? faq1.jpg A. ALIGNING BLADES

  1. The bottom blade holes are larger than the shanks of the blade screws. When the blade screws are loosened the bottom blade can be aligned with the top blade. Tighten the screws after the blsde is aligned and ensure that they are kept tight.
  2. The end of the top blade teeth should be aligned 1/32" to 1/16"(.79mm to 1.59m") back from and parallel to the bottom blade. It is important to align your blade properly to ensure that the clipper does not cut too close and to prevent the moving cutter from touching the skin.
  3. faq2.jpgThe extreme left hand tooth of the top blade must be covering or be to the left of the first small tooth of the bottom blade.
  4. The extreme right hand tooth of the top blade must be touching the big tooth of the bottom blade.

Q. My clipper/trimmer is making a loud "clunking" sound, is it broken? A. No, the unit is not broken. Rather, it is not properly tuned and as such it is not operating at maximum power. To adjust power (tune), turn the power screw in a clockwise direction until you hear a noise. Then, slowly turn the power screw out (counter-clockwise) until the noise stops. This is maximum power.

SOURCE: Wahl Razor will not realign after removing blades for cleaning!

This is always a problem with clippers, it's just a matter of holding the blades tightly in place and getting the screws in as tightly as possible without letting the blades go. This has always worked for me in the past.

1st remove the blade. Once the blade is off grab the blade drive between your fingers, if it moves side to side without any spring pressure than the drive arm is loose from the armature. If that is tight, than the armature may be loose and lifted out of alignment. There are two screws on the right hand side of the case which hold the armature. If the screw is phillips head it is standard thread, if it is torx head it is reverse thread. loosen these screws and press down firmly on the armature. The top of the armature should be even with the top of the motor coil. If the drive lever as mentioned earlier is seperating from the armature then this should be warranty repaired by the manufacturer.

SOURCE: loud buzzing on Wahl "Designer" model clippers

There is a "power screw" located on the side of the clipper opposite the switch. This may need adjusting. Take a screw driver or coin....and with the unit running......turn the screw back and forth until the clipper stops making noise. The proper position for the most power is to turn the screw intil it makes a loud noise, then turn it back just enough to get rid of it.

How can i adjust the blade so it cuts thicker fur


Wahl KM-2 blades are not adjustable like the trimmers, what you need is a skip tooth blade or an 8.5 so the blade teeth are wider.

Check to see if the blade is moving when turned on. If the blade isn't moving the clipper blade may need to be thoroughly cleaned. If the blade is clean and well lubricated but still not moving you may have blown the motor.
However, if the blade is moving freely when turned on, and the hair/fur is just not being cut (or is cutting raggedly or pulling at the hair/fur) you will need to get the blade sharpened.

My clippers are pulling the dog hair instead of cutting, why?


Most common cause will be the blades have gone dull and should be sharpened or replaced. Check that the 2 screws on the blade latch assy are tight where it screws onto the front housing, blade off to check them. 3rd thing to check is for excessive wear in the lever that drives the blades, if it is worn replace it.

How do I reduce my clipper's rattling noise and still be able to cut properly?


The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers.
Most Wahl clippers have a 1 year or longer warranty. You can call Wahl for warranty service at 1-800-334-4627

I used the shaver twice and now it won't clip either of my pets fur. Shouldn't it last longer than that. IF this is the case then I don't need your help I'll just through it away and never...


The main problem arises if hair gets stuck within the blades or the motor internally. Try cleaning it out thoroughly and try again. Another important thing to do is to oil your clipper blades with the specific oil provided by Wahl everytime before use for utmost efficiency

Clippers dont work at all, don;t cut hair and the dog hair is trapped


A reason your trimmer may not work is that the hair is trapped inside the trimmer and not allowing it to function properly.
Here is a link to a video to cleaning hair clippers.

If the problem persists, then you most likely burnt up the engine in the clippers and there is no easy solution other than buying a new trimmer.

Andis pm-3 dog clipper won't cut anymore!


I have had this same problem!  I bought new blades, sharpened old ones, and nothing worked.  Finally, I went to an authorized service center and they couldn't figure it out.  Then the tech. pressed on the blade (the outside bottom one) and it cut!  When you remove the blades with the 2 big screws, there are 2 more smaller screws inside under the smaller blade.  One of those was not screwed in tightly.  That was all it was!  I guess they jiggle loose.  I hope this helps!
