Question about Wahl KM2 Hair Trimmer

Open Question

I have a wahl km2 speed clipper. i have a shih tzu dog - i cannot get it to cut her hair. i have a no 10 and a no 4 blade. l don't know how to line the blades up - are the top blades supposed to be lined up so they are exactly above the bottom set - or are they supposed to be offset against one another so that they do not line up. if i am clipping the back of the dog - should i be running the clippers from her shoulder to her tail or from her tail to her shoulder would appreciate your help

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...

sounds like you have very dull blades and need to replace or sharpen them also your blades may not be tight enough or your screws may be stripped enough as to not tighten down properly. does your clipper sound like the motor wants to slow down when you try using them for an extended time? if so replace the clippers. did you take apart the clipper housing and make sure it is free from all hair? sometimes hair will get into the motor area and cause the blades not to work properly.

This is from the Oster book:
Changing Blades
To Remove: IMPORTANT- stop motor; push latch with thumb while lifting blade away from clipper and slide off tongue.
To Replace: turn motor on; insert blade on tongue fully and then snap blade into place.

Note: if the hinge is flush against clipper, lift it up with a screwdriver.




From me - Never take your blades apart to clean them. You can slide them one side to the other to get the hair out. (One little hair, can stop them from cutting.) You need to buy a can of clipper blade cool from oster or andis both are good, and it really helps to lubricate the blade and keep them cool while clipping. If you live near a dog groomer, petsmart or something of the like. Ask them to show you how to remove the blade and I know they will be happy to show you. I tried to submit an image from the book, but I don't know if it will get here or not.

How can i adjust the blade so it cuts thicker fur


Wahl KM-2 blades are not adjustable like the trimmers, what you need is a skip tooth blade or an 8.5 so the blade teeth are wider.

My clippers are pulling the dog hair instead of cutting, why?


Most common cause will be the blades have gone dull and should be sharpened or replaced. Check that the 2 screws on the blade latch assy are tight where it screws onto the front housing, blade off to check them. 3rd thing to check is for excessive wear in the lever that drives the blades, if it is worn replace it.

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!
