I was trimming my dog and a mat in his fur pulled the clipper blade off the clipper. I have instructions that are very simple and I've tried many times to figure it out. They are suppose to snap back on and I can not get them to snap on or stay on in any way. Are you familiar with the Andis Ultra Edge special edition dog clippers and the way the blades snap back on?
It sounds like you may have a bent hinge which is what the blade slides onto. Please call Andis customer service at 1-800-558-9441 to speak with a customer service rep. They can give you instructions on where to purchase a new hinge or send or clippers in for repair.

hi, new blades are not the answer try replacing the blade drive assembly which is located at the drive end of the clipper and goes from side to side, as the clippers are used this part will gradually wear in width thus not moving the cutter far enough to complete a cut this will produce snagging in smaller blades and tram lines in larger blades like 7, 5, 4 and 3's. All Clipper Parts are available for these clipper repairs.
Ok you need to locate the Latch which holds the blades into place. There should be a black piece of metal at the rear end of the clipper blade whilst on the clippers, simply push this in towards the blade and at the same time pull the front edge of the blade away from the clipper to release this should simply pull off in a forward direction.
Fitting is easier slide a blade onto the tongue of the Hinge Assembly and pull it into the body of the clipper.
There is little needed most componets such as the motor and carbon brushes are fairly complicated and should be checked when the units are serviced.
Keep an eye on the Blade Drive Assembly as with most clippers they wear on the sides causing cutting problems such as lines in cut fur and snagging blades, alternatively send them, to our Clipper Repair department.
The clipper that you purchase dose not have the power to cut the Dog fur, You need a Andis Xcel 2 speed with a # 10 clipper blade. www.mannyssharpening.com
this clipper is quiet and has power. firstname.lastname@example.org
Buy some Kool Lube (Oster) or Andis Blade Coolant. Both are aerosols. Your 2-speed runs faster, so your blades heat up quicker. Check them often by touching them to your inner wrist, and spray them when they are hot. A bonus is that the sprays also disinfect! (FYI a hot blade can badly burn a pet, so make sure you keep them cool)
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!
Could you please be more specific in what the clippers are or are not actually doing? Are they stopping when you attempt to clip the dog? Is the blade just gliding through the fur? What setting do you have the clippers on? Has the dog been bathed and combed? With a little more information I will be better able to help you.
