Question about Homedics PC-400 Pro Clipper

Open Question

Homedics ProClipper 500 sometimes cuts sometimes doesn't.

I own a Homedics ProClipper 500. When I cut my husbands hair it will take one section off just fine. When I go back to cut the next one and so on the clipper will not cut a thing. We took off the attachment and it would not cut the hair when I held it in my hands. Are my blades due and where do I get new ones.

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...

Careful, blades may not be dull,most of the time it is the blade alignment that needs correcting even on used blades, been cutting and repairing clippers for over twenty years.  Repairmen dont like to tell you this.

I gave it a shot and it worked!!!....

No need to bother with the universal guards. They looked bulky for the task, and after careful (visible scrutiny) decided to gamble on the "fast feed clipper" guides. Check them out here:

http://www.cache-beauty.com/oster0541.html

There are surely other people who sell them - you might shop around, but I bought from these guys. Warning, the shipping price is kinda steep. But like I said in my last post, I've tried other clippers and these are just the best. It was worth it to me.

Anyway, I am now confirming that these guards fit this old clipper brand of ours. Perfectly!

Clipper won't cut cleanly or easily. Lack of oil and dirty. Sometimes a hair gets caught between the blades. Lubricate and clean your Clippers regularly.

What are cushion hair brushes?


Cushioned hair brushes have a padded section under the bristles that can be pressed in, just like a cushion.

They are good for medium length hair and work well at straightening / smoothing the hair. It's also a good brush type for people with thinning and damaged hair.

Is it easier to cut hair when its wet or dry?


It's definitely easier to comb and de-tangle hair when it's wet and you get a better sense of the natural fall of the hair when it's wet. It's just much easier to work with than dry hair, so even if you aren't going for a full hair wash at the salon, make sure you ask them to spray your hair wet when you get it cut.

I lost my job, and am in need of dog haircut instructions.


I had a dog with hair. I couldn't afford to take her to the groomers, so I bought an Oster Animal Hair clippers and just buzzed off the hair myself. They have little attachments to go on so they don't cut so short. If you mess up, the hair grows out. My kids used to laugh at some of the hair cuts. I had to train Buttons to hold her head very still when I cut around her eyes. That part scared me, but she did hold still. Some times I had to let her run around awhile and come back to the hair cut in 10 minutes. I also had to train her to lay on her back for the tummy & chest trim. She never did like the toenail trim though. I had to sit on her to get it done. Luckily she was only 13 lbs. I did her hair twice a year and sometimes 3 times. I used the scissors on her feet too. Check at Fleet Farm, Target, or Sally's Beauty Supply for cutting tools.

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!

Oster Golden A5 Clippers will not cut


These kinds of clippers are fussy about oiling and dirt. It is essential that the blades be spotless and well oiled FREQUENTLY. Oil after every haircut always. Also, if there is not enough tension on the blades, the hair will slip between the blade and blade guard, getting caught and damaging the blades. Blades should be screwed on tight. Also, it may be time to replace the blade if nothing else helps. These blades do not last very long in my experience especially if not carefully cleaned and oiled.
