This is a great clipper but the blade can be tricky to reseat. Just pop off the blade using the thumb spring near the bottom of the blade, however do not pop straight off! Instead pull the blade up towards you before removing. This should angle up the metal tongue so it is easy to replace the blade. Next you can lubricate any moving parts but be sure to both remove any excess hair first. Also use only oil made for clippers since other types might evaporate and lead to corrosion.
When you're ready to replace the blade make sure it slides onto the tongue and then to seat it properly turn on the motor and snap into place!

Trouble garage door

Disconnect the door so the belt and pulleys will run without a large weight to move. If they move ok, reattach the door and try again but help the door move with your hand. If it moves ok then, the door levers and joints may be too stiff and need lubicating and wiggling until they move freely.

The needle doesn't go up & down. Any suggestions? Thank you

Does the handwheel turn eazy or is it stiff. If it is stiff you need to take the top and bottom off and lubricate all moving parts. may take a bit of turning the handwheel and lubicating(it may tire you out). If the handwheel is not stiff I would check to see iff the motor is spining at all. If motor is not spining may be a bad footcontrol. If it is spining try cleaning the belt pullys and tighting the belt.
hope this helps

Pull the side cover off the pump of there will be small shaft, turn the shaft it will free it up. You need to make sure that the pump is cleaned out after each use, you can get a cleaning material that you want to run through the hole system, relief valve, spray nozzle etc. it will lubicate everything up. If you did not clean it out it will seeze and you will needs to be freed, chemical will freeze the moto.
