HAIR CLIPPERS – SERVICE HINTS

WAHL CLIPPER SUPER TAPER,  WAHL 2000 HAIR CLIPPER, WAHL STERLING 4 HAIR CLIPPERS

Oil Blades Regularly

Ninety percent  of cutting problems are created by not enough hair clipper oil being used on the blades.  The top blade of all electric hair clippers is moving at a tremendous speed across the bottom blade and if oil is not used prior to each thick hair cut the non oiled blade will wear and the cutting edge will not perform properly. Also the oil helps to clear the hair particles from the blade which also assists cutting. 

Its also important to use oils specially formulated  oil for electric hair clippers. Other oils  will effect  performance of cutting, will restrict blade as too thick and sticky. Use Wahl clipper Oil as it specially made for clippers. Turn clippers on and oil along blades.

PROBLEM:       NOT ENOUGH POWER (not cutting)

CORRECTION:   Adjust tuning Screw. Use a screw driver or knife. Turn Hair  Clippers on and adjust tuning screw on the right hand side of clipper to clockwise until you hear a clattering noise.  Then turn back anti -clockwise until the point where clattering noise is gone. That’s the best point where the most power will  power your blades.

PROBLEM:    BLADES NOT ALIGNED PROPERLY, pulling hair or nipping.

 

CORRECTION:  Realign Blades.  Check the above first ” tuning screw  and correct.” Then realign blades till the small  front  blade is just  slightly under the big bottom  blade when the adjusting arm  on the left is in the up position. If small  front blade is too close to the bottom blade the hair clippers   will nip the skin. Need a screw  driver.

PROBLEM:   CLIPPERS RUNNING CORRECTLY BUT NOT CUTTING

CORRECTION: Turn on hair clippers and Oil blades with proper clipper oil running the oil along the the entire top of the blades.  If the hair clippers are still not cutting after oiling, adjusting  the tuning screw and realigning blades, then they  may need new blades if old or damaged. Put new blades on and use the instructions above on “Realign Blades.”

PROBLEM:  HAIR CLIPPERS NOT TURNING ON OR ANY OTHER SERIOUS COMPLAINT

CORRECTION;  SEND HAIR CLIPPERS TO RECOGNIZED REPAIR AGENT FOR REPAIR.
