Question about Conair 5200

Conair Champion Hair clipper

I can't find my instruction manual, and my clippers do not seem to be giving me an even cut. Is there a way to adjust it? Or is it in need of oil? How often should it be oiled? and How do I oil it? My lube oil that came with the set is empty. What kind of oil can I use?

Hope you get your answer about the "other" kind of oil but let me tell you, I've used shavers but never any of them used oil of any type so can't really give you a proper answer. If you gadget uses some kind of oi, be sure thet instruction should mention this detail.

Clipper won't cut cleanly or easily. Lack of oil and dirty. Sometimes a hair gets caught between the blades. Lubricate and clean your Clippers regularly.

It could be the switch is shorting out or the cord is. If it doesn't cut off when you move the cord it is prob the switch.

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.
Most Wahl clippers have a 1 year or longer warranty. You can call Wahl for warranty service at 1-800-334-4627

How to position the clipper blade while u sharpening?


Hi!
I'm not sure about the nature of you question. Firstly if you mean, position the comb (with the adjusting lever on your clipper because your blades wont work, then:)
1.
If you move the comb downwards using the lever on the side of your clipper you will get a shorter cut, if you move it forward you will get a slightly longer cut. If your clipper makes a horrible noise, I believe there is a plastic adjuster on the side that you adjust with a flat head screwdriver. This adjusts the springs inside the clipper which effects how central the cutter moves from side to side. Adjust this while the clipper is running. You want your blades to be as central as posssible. If they still do not work, you may need your blades sharpened. This costs £5.90 incl. VAT & Postage www.sheareaseltd.com You could send your clipper to them as well and ask them to re align your blades after sharpening and they'll just charge the extra postage. (extra £5)
Hope this helps!
2.
If you mean how to hold the clipper with the blade relative to what you are clipping. You need to hold the clipper so the teeth are not pointing into your project, but not pointing away from it either. Keep the comb parallel to your project. With human hair, cut against the grain, with an animal cut with the grain!
Hope This Helps!

My GTO model Andis clippers blade is not properly aligning..how do I adjust it?


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.
