Wahl designer clipper

I bought a Wahl designer clipper several months ago.It was working fine last week.When I went to cut my husband's hair last night, the clipper made a low humming sound but the blades were not moving. I tried removing and reattaching the blade, adjusting the power screw and adjusting the lever on the side but nothing helped. Any ideas?

    My Wahl Clippers have a low humming sound, the blades are not moving so there is no cutting happening.  This is exactly like the last posting.  My husband took it apart and could not see how to fix anything.

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...

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.

Hi I have a Wahl Super Trimmer model 1591/1592 1.2V. Have had it 3 months, It doesn't cut hair anymore and appears blunt! But yet it still easily cuts paper etc. I also can get inside it as it has been...

What are you doing trying it on paper! Never cut anything other than human hair with them or they ill go dull. Keep them clean with a small brush you brush out all the hair and use clipper oil after every use. If they have been dropped * even just a little bit " it sets them off and they wont cut. Go to a salon ask them who sharpens there tools and get there info and have them sharpened you dont need another clipper. and oil after every use with clipper oil no other kind!
