How to sharpen blades

We have a conair hair clipping set - we use it for our cat who somehow gets his fur all matted up. He is pretty good about some of his grooming but he does have those spots. Anyway, is there a solution to sharpening the blade?
Appreciate any assistance!

SOURCE: Blade won't cut

Try replacing the Drive Lever which is located at the end of the clipper and goes from side to side, simply undo the two screws on the name plate/ gearbox cover and remove then pull the lever out. This is the most likely cause if you experiance the same problem with all blades.

Hey dude i had the same problem n_n. Attach the screws in place and try to screw one by one gently. Soon this pressure will keep the spring tighten (instead your finger's pressure) then it will be easier to reassemble the component. I know you'll fix it n_n.

Brand new andis trimmer pulling hair and not cutting good


The questions about Andis T-Outliner or Andis Styliner II, about not cutting or pulling hair.
On the Andis T-Outliner trimmer if the sharpness of the blade is worn out, all the tricks and treats won't make this blade to cut hair. Before I do any kind of work to the trimmer, I first test the coil for the right amount power, I can get out of the coil, without this power, it doesn't matter how new or old the trimmer is, the trimmer will not cut hair at all. If the coil is good, I will sharpen the blade and set it according to your needs (lineups or shave setting) after the blade is sharpened and set. The trimmer will need to be, adjusted for alignment to the blade, adjust the power of the coil, and adjust the tension for the blade. All these factors are involved in the Andis T-Outliner to cut hair clean especially lineups or shaving. These adjustments work together for the trimmer to work properly. I know that we all trying to save money, which is part of life, but sometimes frustration will take over and say hell with it, I'll buy another or forget it. Manufactures make mistakes, sometimes the trimmer was not sharpened or adjusted correctly. Any case, what I'm trying to say here, if you try all the tricks & treats and can get your trimmer to work, it may be easier for you to send it to a professional to sharpen & repair the problem and set the blade according to your needs (lineups or shave setting) We specialize on Andis T-Outliner Trimmers. Our complete sharpening & repair service is $19.99 each trimmer, this includes return shipping. We sharpen the blade, adjust and set the blade according to your request (Lineup or Shave setting) make all the necessary adjustments for alignment, power, tension to make your trimmer work better than new.

Blades normally glide tight thru hair....cleaned and oiled blades but still meeting resistance on perfectly combed not matted hair. Blades are approx 5 yrs old. Do they need sharpened maybe. Should I...


Ok if you take them appart don't touch the screws you will find it hard to re-align, if your blades haven't been sharpened for 5 years the i think its a very good place to start

I have conair haircut kit 10 piece and i used it on my brother and it keeps pulling his hair and i turned the power on switch it still pulls his hair whats wrong with the clippers


Sounds like you may need the blade sharpened, it may be dull, otherwise the motor may not be functioning properly. Does he have thick or coarse hair? If so, you may need to go through it lightly in sections otherwise it will for sure pull, I learned that way back in hair school long ago. :) Goodluck!

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!
