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.

Could you please be more specific in what the clippers are or are not actually doing? Are they stopping when you attempt to clip the dog? Is the blade just gliding through the fur? What setting do you have the clippers on? Has the dog been bathed and combed? With a little more information I will be better able to help you.

Thank you,

SOURCE: Andis Super 2 Speed AGC Clippers - The blades get very hot !

Buy some Kool Lube (Oster) or Andis Blade Coolant. Both are aerosols. Your 2-speed runs faster, so your blades heat up quicker. Check them often by touching them to your inner wrist, and spray them when they are hot. A bonus is that the sprays also disinfect! (FYI a hot blade can badly burn a pet, so make sure you keep them cool)

No need to replace the clipper they are usually well worth repairing.
This sounds like a problem with you power cable they are just under £10, try moving the cable in different directions around the rubber strain relief coming out of the clipper.

Ok you need to locate the Latch which holds the blades into place. There should be a black piece of metal at the rear end of the clipper blade whilst on the clippers, simply push this in towards the blade and at the same time pull the front edge of the blade away from the clipper to release this should simply pull off in a forward direction.
Fitting is easier slide a blade onto the tongue of the Hinge Assembly and pull it into the body of the clipper.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for your help. The hinge assembly is what tripped me up. Once you explained that is was really quite easy. Thank you!"

SOURCE: 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.

Blade not staying on tight


If you can pull the blade away from the clipper without pressing the blade release button then either the hook on the Latch is broken (which will mean all blades have the same problem) or the blade socket on the blade may need adjustment or replacement. Please view the part in question Latch

Moser max 45 won't cut


Most common cause will be the blades have gone dull and should be sharpened or replaced. Check that the 2 screws on the blade latch assy are tight where it screws onto the front housing, blade off to check them. 3rd thing to check is for excessive wear in the lever that drives the blades, if it is worn replace it.

I have a Andis AGC super 2, I have only owned this since last summer so this unit has only been used 9 times. I cut three dogs and I have been through 6 drivers. WHATS the DEAL!!! I am going crazy. When I...


ok firstly you must oil the blade every 15 min's or so this wil prevent rust build up and also prolong the life of the blade. (further details can be found at http://angliaclipperservices.com/clipper_blades.html)

ensure the blade is snapped into place correctly this can be done by pushing the front edge of the blade away from the clipper. The blade should not detatch without the black latch being depressed so if he blade comes away simply push it into the clipper with it running until it is in place.

Andis super Agr+ / Andis Agc super maintenance


There is little needed most componets such as the motor and carbon brushes are fairly complicated and should be checked when the units are serviced.
Keep an eye on the Blade Drive Assembly as with most clippers they wear on the sides causing cutting problems such as lines in cut fur and snagging blades, alternatively send them, to our Clipper Repair department.

Andis pm-3 dog clipper won't cut anymore!


I have had this same problem!  I bought new blades, sharpened old ones, and nothing worked.  Finally, I went to an authorized service center and they couldn't figure it out.  Then the tech. pressed on the blade (the outside bottom one) and it cut!  When you remove the blades with the 2 big screws, there are 2 more smaller screws inside under the smaller blade.  One of those was not screwed in tightly.  That was all it was!  I guess they jiggle loose.  I hope this helps!
