Technical Support: My clipper is not cutting the hair. Why?

There are a number of reasons why your clipper may not be cutting your animals hair, so before sending the unit back for inspection, consider the following:

  • Has the tension been set correctly?
  • Is the right blade type being used for the hair/coat type? Is the coat clean and in good condition?
  • Are the blades sharp, clean and in good condition?
  • Are the teeth tips in the correct position? If the teeth on the top cutter are too far forward (which can occur when blades are not kept in manufactured pairs), it can drag the hair as opposed to cutting it.
