I had the same problem with the Wahl Pro Series Rechargeable model 8552, and called Wahl service. Here is what I learned:
Never unscrew the screws on a Wahl blade (they use those funky nonstandard screws to deter you) -- that's the main thing. The whole blade assembly is supposed to come off by pulling it up and off from the teeth.
But, if you did it (as I did), you can put it back together this way:
1. Place the large blade down on the table (Wahl logo down), and place the small blade on top of it (if you look carefully, you will see how it lines up).
2. Insert the spring points into the two holes of the white plastic part (on mine, the spring kept slipping out and I finally used a drop of superglue on each hole until it would stay in long enough to complete the assembly). Place that piece on top of the small blade (see photo).
3. The bent metal piece with the two screw holes then gets placed on top of the large blade, with the center ridge of the bent piece over the straight center portion of the spring -- so that you have to hold it in your hand and push it together against the spring in order to align the holes of the entire thing. As you are holding that, put the screws in from below and tighten. It's awkward and if you are like me, it will take several tries before you can get it all lined up correctly and tightened. The photo below is what the final assembly looks like before snapping it onto the clipper.
3. Clip it in: At the top of the assembly in the photo below, notice the small bent metal piece that will fit into the back of your clipper in the hole. Once you fit that properly, push the whole assembly down onto the clipper until it snaps into place.

Blade assembly: My WAHL Peanut trimmer hit the floor and fell apart.. How do I reassemble the blade which has also detached.


if it broke apart when it hit the floor then you will have more problems than just putting the blades back on. those are fairly well put together so coming apart means they hit pretty hard. you wont ever get them to cut right even if they go back together. your gunna have to just buy new ones.

I disassembled my Wahl 8552 Pro Series clippers do change the rechargeable batteries and now I can't figure out how to assemble it. I wind up with two extra screws.


How did you get it apart? I don't want to break the case and can't get it to release at the front of the unit.

How to reassemble blades on Wahl rechargeable unit


I had the same problem and I eventually figured it out. The blade assembly has to be reassembled first then snapped back into place.

1. the bottom part has a little "nub" that the screws attach to
2. the second part is the thin piece of metal with a ridge
3. the white plastic thing, make sure the ridges are sandwiched together
4. the small blade, the blades must face each other
5. the large blade

use the 2 screws to hold the assembly together, once assembled it snaps into place on the clipper. See attached picture for how it should look once assembled.

It's STUPID that this is missing from the instruction guide that comes with the clippers.

Wahl 8550 Pet Clippers Won't Work


Tried the above solutions but it all keeps falling apart. It's a wahl pro series rechargeable. There are two screws, large blade, small blade, white plastic part and a silver bracket that seems to slide on the white plastic part. What goes in first? How do I assemble it? How do blades match? Do the grooves on large blade fit into small blade? Help, I can't reassemble it. Thanks in advance! Pam

Wahl Razor will not realign after removing blades for cleaning!


This is always a problem with clippers, it's just a matter of holding the blades tightly in place and getting the screws in as tightly as possible without letting the blades go. This has always worked for me in the past.
