1 or 2 basic things happened. 1st there is an armature adjustment on the right hand side when viewing the clipper from the top (it looks like a screw). Place a screw driver in this and turn it counter clockwise, if this screw is up against the stop than you can place a small screwdriver behind it and pop it out (this is actually a cap) now you can access the actual adjuster. back this out about an 1/8 of a turn at a time until the noise stops, turn them side to side to insure that the armature is far enough off of the motor coil. Then replace the cap.

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

check the electrical cord at the clipper connection by bending the electrical cord at clipper end with the clipper on if the clipper stops the electrical cord is broken in side.if this will dose not locate the problem, the next possible problem will be the coil inside the clipper the coil has a broken field winding wire. Have a Wahl clipper repair shop repair the problem.
First, they need to have a drop of oil put on the cutters every time they are used. Second, there is usually an adjustment screw on the side of them to adjust the travel of the moving cutter. Adjust that so that it completely goes across the slots in the stationary one, but not too far or too noisy.
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.
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... George
