You probably need a new blade drive, which is easily replaced yourself, if you are so inclined.

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.

Hi; i just bought a andis improved master clipper and the blades stop working right after i tried to adjust the voltage ,i can hear the motor running, but the blades don't move, please help me! thanks!


I just had this same problem. My andis Masters where working and they started making a loud sound and the blades stopped working. The Problem was there wasn't enough power. I used a screw driver and turn the power adjusting screw to the Right with a flat head screw driver.the sound got louder but after I keep turn it the blades started moving again and the blades got quiet again. Tada a Quick Fix.

My andis t-outliner keeps pulling hair when cutting and it barley cuts the hair. Do the blades need adjusting?


sound like your clipper blades may require sharpening, just remove the blades and send them to a professional company specialising in scissor and clipper sharpening.

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!

My GTO model Andis clippers blade is not properly aligning..how do I adjust it?


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.
