Hair clippers that don't work

I haven't used the electric clippers for years and when I turned it on it did not run, but smoked slightly. I quickly turned the clippers off. What type of service is required?

The unit should be sent into the manufacturer for a complete review.

Clippers dont work at all, don;t cut hair and the dog hair is trapped


A reason your trimmer may not work is that the hair is trapped inside the trimmer and not allowing it to function properly.
Here is a link to a video to cleaning hair clippers.

If the problem persists, then you most likely burnt up the engine in the clippers and there is no easy solution other than buying a new trimmer.

My clippers are frozen. They don't vibrate but the motor turns on.


Hi, How long have you been using the clippers? In my experience they can get clogged with hair quite quickly depending on the animal. I'd recommend removing the blade to better get at the hair stuck between the blades. Once the blade is off lubricate the appropriate parts following the guide in your operating manual. It's best to do this soon before the motor burns out. If you feel that the blades are too clogged, it's easy to buy a replacement blade for around 1/3 the price of a new clipper set.

How to position the clipper blade while u sharpening?


Hi!
I'm not sure about the nature of you question. Firstly if you mean, position the comb (with the adjusting lever on your clipper because your blades wont work, then:)
1.
If you move the comb downwards using the lever on the side of your clipper you will get a shorter cut, if you move it forward you will get a slightly longer cut. If your clipper makes a horrible noise, I believe there is a plastic adjuster on the side that you adjust with a flat head screwdriver. This adjusts the springs inside the clipper which effects how central the cutter moves from side to side. Adjust this while the clipper is running. You want your blades to be as central as posssible. If they still do not work, you may need your blades sharpened. This costs £5.90 incl. VAT & Postage www.sheareaseltd.com You could send your clipper to them as well and ask them to re align your blades after sharpening and they'll just charge the extra postage. (extra £5)
Hope this helps!
2.
If you mean how to hold the clipper with the blade relative to what you are clipping. You need to hold the clipper so the teeth are not pointing into your project, but not pointing away from it either. Keep the comb parallel to your project. With human hair, cut against the grain, with an animal cut with the grain!
Hope This Helps!

Runs if tipped to the right. Not if tipped to the left


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.

I have an Oster A5 it is 2 years old. What is the secret to putting the blade back on? The directions are vague and just mention that the motor should be turned on and then snap the blade in place. No...


Hi! I'm a groomer...

Slide your blade onto the spring loaded hinge. Turn your clipper on, and snap the blade down on the running blade drive. You'll probably have to push it down slightly, for it to catch. This should work.
