Question about Andis 01690 Hair Trimmer

1 Answer

The noise level of the clippers was deafening upon first use. Followed the packages nominal instrucitons to adjust the power screw clockwise and back off to drop the noise level to something normal. This did not work. Unscrewed to cutter head to position the blades, thinking that would help and the base plate to the head came off. Now, without instructions, I do not know how to reassemble the shears. Do you have some more detailed instructions on how to get these clippers back together and functioning properly?

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.

Thank you,

The problem with Andis clippers is that you are not told how to get the most effective job out of you're clippers,i can attest to that because i've repaired and adjusted hundreds of them,every user wants a crisp cut,nothing less, you want find the answer to that in the instructions,so you're encouraged to send the clipper back to Andis company,i did that once just to see if they really understand their own tool,the clipper cut no better upon it's return,it was then that i discoverer the ultimate solution,blades has to be precise,only then will you get a crisp cut,for any type of hair ,so before you get rid of blades,remember 85% of the time the problem is with the adjustment of the blade.

YOU HAVE TO OPEN DEM UP. TAKE OUT THE SCREWS ON THE TOP DEN TAKE OFF THE BLADE. ONCE YOU HAVE THE BLADE OUT THERE ARE TWO MORE LIL SCREWS UNSCREW THOSE (NOT ALL THE WAY OFF, JUST ENOUGH SO THAT THE BLADE WILL MOVE) ADJUST THE BLADE HOWEVER YOU WANT. IF YOU WANT IT CLOSE FOR A MORE DETAILED CLOSE LINE (NOT TO CLOSE AS DEY WILL CUT YOUR OR THE CLIENTS SKIN). YOU MUST TRY THEM OUT ON YOURSELF SEE IF THEY ARE TOO SHARP, IF THEY ARE TAKE THEM OFF AND ADJUST THEM AGAIN. EASIEST THING TOO DO IS USE A MIRROR, HOLD THE BLADE AGAINST THE MIRROR DEN MOVE IT AT AN 45 ANGLE DEN TIGHTEN THE SCREWS DER (BARBER TRICK).

How do I reduce my clipper's rattling noise and still be able to cut properly?


The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers.

What's the role of the "power screw" ????


To adjust clipper/trimmers to run to their voltage needs. If clipper/trimmer rattles or over vibrates it may need adjustment to the line voltage in your area. Before adjusting, make sure the clipper/trimmer is clean and blade is oiled. Then turn the SMALL power screw clockwise on the side of the clipper until the noise disappears.

Look on the side of the clipper handle. You ahould see what appears to be a screw. With your clipper plugged in and turned on, turn that screw with a screw driver in either direction, the noise you are talking about should quiet down quite a bit,

Loud buzzing on Wahl "Designer" model clippers


There is a "power screw" located on the side of the clipper opposite the switch. This may need adjusting. Take a screw driver or coin....and with the unit running......turn the screw back and forth until the clipper stops making noise. The proper position for the most power is to turn the screw intil it makes a loud noise, then turn it back just enough to get rid of it.

Wahl magic clip clippers are very noisy , tried to adjust ?


1 or 2 basic things happened. 1st there is an armature adjustment on the right hand side when viewing the clipper from the top (it looks like a screw). Place a screw driver in this and turn it counter clockwise, if this screw is up against the stop than you can place a small screwdriver behind it and pop it out (this is actually a cap) now you can access the actual adjuster. back this out about an 1/8 of a turn at a time until the noise stops, turn them side to side to insure that the armature is far enough off of the motor coil. Then replace the cap.

HOW DO FIX MY MASTER ANDIS THEY ARE LOUD


Turn the clipper on and with a screwdriver turn the screw on the side all the way clockwise. Next slowly turn the screw back the opposite direction until the clippers are running at a normal sound level. If this does not work you will need to send the unit in for an internal adjustment. Please call the Andis customer service department at 1-800-558-9441 for further instruction.

Thank you for choosing Andis.

Q. How do I align my blades? faq1.jpg A. ALIGNING BLADES
  1. The bottom blade holes are larger than the shanks of the blade screws. When the blade screws are loosened the bottom blade can be aligned with the top blade. Tighten the screws after the blsde is aligned and ensure that they are kept tight.
  2. The end of the top blade teeth should be aligned 1/32" to 1/16"(.79mm to 1.59m") back from and parallel to the bottom blade. It is important to align your blade properly to ensure that the clipper does not cut too close and to prevent the moving cutter from touching the skin.
  3. faq2.jpgThe extreme left hand tooth of the top blade must be covering or be to the left of the first small tooth of the bottom blade.
  4. The extreme right hand tooth of the top blade must be touching the big tooth of the bottom blade.

Q. My clipper/trimmer is making a loud "clunking" sound, is it broken? A. No, the unit is not broken. Rather, it is not properly tuned and as such it is not operating at maximum power. To adjust power (tune), turn the power screw in a clockwise direction until you hear a noise. Then, slowly turn the power screw out (counter-clockwise) until the noise stops. This is maximum power.
