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...

YOU HAVE TO OPEN DEM UP. TAKE OUT THE SCREWS ON THE TOP DEN TAKE OFF THE BLADE. ONCE YOU HAVE THE BLADE OUT THERE ARE TWO MORE LIL SCREWS UNSCREW THOSE (NOT ALL THE WAY OFF, JUST ENOUGH SO THAT THE BLADE WILL MOVE) ADJUST THE BLADE HOWEVER YOU WANT. IF YOU WANT IT CLOSE FOR A MORE DETAILED CLOSE LINE (NOT TO CLOSE AS DEY WILL CUT YOUR OR THE CLIENTS SKIN). YOU MUST TRY THEM OUT ON YOURSELF SEE IF THEY ARE TOO SHARP, IF THEY ARE TAKE THEM OFF AND ADJUST THEM AGAIN. EASIEST THING TOO DO IS USE A MIRROR, HOLD THE BLADE AGAINST THE MIRROR DEN MOVE IT AT AN 45 ANGLE DEN TIGHTEN THE SCREWS DER (BARBER TRICK).

Check the tension of the hinge assembly which you slot your blades onto the hinge should be stiff (not moving by finger) also check the latch is connecting when the blades are fitted (check the blades wont pull off without depressing the latch. Its possible the blade drive may require replacing again they do not last long if your a busy groomer.

The part that you require is not available for budget models like the HC-8017. You will need to purchase a new clipper or find an old one (ebay?) that you can buy cheaply for parts.
If you decide to replace your HC-8017 clipper, you will find them for sale at shaveroutlet.com

OK compressed air is perfect for your clipper, thats all it needs! Take the filters off (at the bottome of the clipper, either side of the cable) periodically and clear from excess fur. Replace. As far as the blades are concerened, Brush the excess furr off with a toothbrush or similar. Slide the cutter (smaller of the 2 blades) to one side (past half way but not all the way off!) clean exposed teeth on both blades with a bit of oil and a toothbrush, push the cutter the other way and repeat. Blade wash's tend to rust the blades, you need a big pot of WD-40. Get a 5 litre tub from the internet, only thing is there, postage will be a killer. I work for a clipper repair, blade sharpening company and we have it delivered by the truckload! Do what you do with the blade wash, but do it in WD-40. Wipe off excess afterwards and dont soak the clipper in any liquid because of electrc shock.
Thats all you can do! When your blades go blunt or clipper needs service repair: www.sheareaseltd.com If I have helped you please tell your friends about our website! Thank you!

Heiniger clippers won't clip


It's likely the tension nut or screw needs to be tightened a little more providing the drive block is in place and the blades have been put on correctly.

You shouldn't need to buy new blades even when they go blunt just send them to a professional sharpener

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.

I am having trouble getting the replacement blade back on my Oster A-5. I doesn't seem to want to "click" into place? Any hints?


the clipper must be running when you try to fit a blade, if its all pf your blades your having trouble with then the problem is with your clippers, its possible the black latch which you need to depress to release a blade is bocken, loock at the end and make sure there is a hook which catches the blade, look at the picture.

Yes there will be an adjustment screw to align the blades but all clippers will make some noise especially when they are close to your ears. Go back to the shop for advice and to hear other clippers they have but you will probably find that you have one of the quietest model of a normally loud product.

Proffesional Oster clippers model 274-69 seems to be frozen...


First, these are very sensitive to no lubrication. They should be lubricated every use to every few uses. Put a drop or two of light machine oil (sewing machine oil is about right) directly on the cutting blades. That may fix your problem. Also, watch the blades once you getit running and make sure the teeth totally pass each other or it will pull hair -- no fun! The travel of the moving blade is generally adjustable via a large plastic screw on the side of the clipper.
