    The Remington 8017 worked fine for the first 2 years. Now it just started to pull the hair and not cut very well at all. It is really self sharpening? If so maybe it is just worn out.
    What is the problem? Will it require a new cutting head or some other part?

    I had the Andis 29775 clippers for a couple of months now and they have been working perfecrtly. The morning of the incident I and just cut my beard, that night when I went to give my brother a shape up they completely stopped cutting and began pulling hair, they wouldn't even cut the hair on my arms or legs when I tested it. Need help bad, Have cleaned them with alcohol and oiled them. What do I do?

    I have an Andis dog clipper that starts out cutting perfectly, but after three or four passes it just won't clip. Any ideas? How are the two blades suppose to align if the blades have been taken apart and put back together

Not really - where do they get their oil? the motor may be self oiling but the clipper part needs external very light oil. they operate just like a hedge clipper. the sickle bar on a hedge clipper needs oil to function.

All clipper/trimmer blades must be oiled both before and after use. Hold the unit with the blades pointed toward the floor. Put a dab of oil across the front of the blades and turn the unit on to get the oil distributed through the entire blade. Turn the unit off and wipe the blades with a soft cloth to remove any excess oil.

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.

Remington HC600 hair clipper stopped clipping


To all of you: adjusting the screws won't help, unless you screwed something up yourself, of course LOL The same problem bothered me a few years, and an hour ago I found out it could easily be a single hair stuck between the blades, thus separating them a bit. Get rid of it and the trimmer will probably work again. It can even get out spontaneously, which happened to me and kept me wondering what was going on.
P.S. DON'T lubricate unless you are required to (check your manual) The model I have (HC210c) does't need lubrication, I guess yours is similar to it. And remember that NOT every oily substance is a machine lubricant.
