Question about Andis Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Have used my brand new Andis Excel clippers for 3 weeks. after a couple day started having trouble with clippers not wanting to turn on or they would come on but cut on and off several times before working properly, mainly with heavier blades . Taking off blade , putting back on a few times and it would work again. The other day clippers started makingh a loud sound in the middle of groom and blade was no longer moving. Still won't work, will power on without blade on but still making a loud sound. If I put a blade on, noise contimues, blade doesn't move or clipper stops all together. I've never seen this happen before, guessing maybe something with the motor. What is causing this?how do I did it?

Install the clipper blades onto the unit properly
read the user manual on how to do it
From your description it indicates that the blade base is on the tang but the clipper is not inline with the activator and will click in a bit more

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,

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...

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).

So I have andis agc super 2 speed brand new. I have literally shaved half my dog clippers now seem too dull or cant cut hair. IThis cannot be normal to hVe this much trouble with brand new clipper


First, I'm not a Andis Tech.
* Check your warranty and call for service.

*** Following is for information only ***
* Normally I would suggest cleaning and tightening the 2 blade holder screws as in a normal "Human" hair clipper. But I noticed this pet clipper uses a snap on blade (or a combo blade as shone in "Blade Maint" video. Looks like it's mostly cleaning though I have seen other vids with clippers going dull during pet "rescues" having to trim matted hair. One lady used 2 blades and ending up using a 3d blade. It could be just that; really thick dirty hair. Dirt and grime is a collection of stone dust and oils after all.

My Andis excel 5 speed clippers will not turn on


Try the fuse in the plug first then try to move the cable where it enters the clippers it may just be a faulty cable.
Otherwise it will need stripping apart and testing, Sorry

After using my clippers they made a weird noise and wont come back on at all


How long have you had your clippers and what brand are they? Is there a little side button that looks to have a **** in it where you could place a flathead screwdriver? If so, take a flathead and turn it right or left while your clippers are on and see what happens. It may be very well the your clippers are too old and the motor is bad or you may have to take them apart and give them a good cleaning. Always use 3-1 oil.

Brand new blades #10 in perticular leave stripes


hi, new blades are not the answer try replacing the blade drive assembly which is located at the drive end of the clipper and goes from side to side, as the clippers are used this part will gradually wear in width thus not moving the cutter far enough to complete a cut this will produce snagging in smaller blades and tram lines in larger blades like 7, 5, 4 and 3's. All Clipper Parts are available for these clipper repairs.
