You can always set the blades for a coarser cut by attaching
any of the snap-on blade attachments made for your Andis
Clipper. To use blade attachment, slip the cutter blade teeth
into blade attachment. Snap the blade attachment down, they
snap on and off easily. These attachments guide hair into the
clipper blades and give you precise control of hair lengths.
The length of trim is indicated on the blade attachment. Use
the clipping guide on the other side of this sheet to find the
approximate lengths of cut. Different blade angles in relation
to the skin, thickness and texture of the hair will vary the cutting length.

Congratulations –

when you bought this Andis Clipper.
Careful workmanship and quality design
have been the hallmarks of Andis products
since 1922.

This product is intended for Professional Use.
In a double-insulated clipper, two systems of insulation are
provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double-insulated clipper, nor should a means for
grounding be added. Servicing a double-insulated clipper
requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and
should be done only by an Andis Authorized Service Station.
Replacement parts must be identical to those parts being
replaced. A double-insulated clipper is marked by the words
“double insulation” or “double insulated”. The symbol
also be marked on the appliance.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not
fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do
not change the plug in any way.
Please read the following instructions before using your new
Andis Clipper. Give it the care that a fine precision built
instrument deserves and it will give you years of service. Plug
cord into electrical outlet, operate 120 volt, 60 cycle AC electrical current or as noted on unit. To start clipper, move switch
button to on position; to stop, move switch button back to
original position. After using your Andis Clipper, rewrap cord
and store in a safe place.
To remove the blades, first unplug the
clipper from the electrical outlet and raise
handle to upper position. Turn the clipper
Diagram A
upside down, so that the blade teeth are
pointing down. You may want to place the
clipper on a flat surface to do this.
Unscrew the screws on the blade
(Diagram A). Remove the blades. To
replace the blades, put the smaller upper
blade back into position (Diagram B). Be
sure the upper blade engages with black
drive finger. Push upper blade so that the
drive finger opening engages with the
drive finger and the tension spring is in
the blade groove. Line up the screw holes Diagram B
in the bottom blade with the two holes in
the clipper housing, and replace screws. Do not tighten down
screws completely. Turn clipper over and align lower blade so
teeth on both blades are parallel, but with lower blade’s teeth
slightly above the upper blade teeth. Failure to do this may
result in nipping the skin when cutting the hair.
Your Andis Adjustable Clipper Blade set is
easy to adjust. From coarse to fine cuts, all
that’s needed is a flick of the adjustment lever
with your thumb. In the upright position,
blades are set for the finest, or shortest cuts.
The internal mechanism of your motor clipper has been
permanently lubricated at the factory. Other than the recommended maintenance described in this manual, no other
maintenance should be performed, except by Andis
Company or an Andis Authorized Repair Service Station.
Blades should be oiled before, during, and after use. If your clipper
blades leave streaks or slow down,
it’s a sure sign blades need oil.
Place a few drops of Andis Clipper
Oil on the front and sides of the cutDiagram C
ter blades (Diagram C). Wipe
excess oil off blades with a soft, dry cloth. Spray lubricants
contain insufficient oil for good lubrication, but is an excellent
clipper blade coolant. Always replace broken or nicked blades
to prevent injury. You can clean the excess hair from your
blades by using a small brush or worn out toothbrush. To
clean the blades, we suggest to immerse the blades only
into a shallow pan of Andis Clipper Oil, while the clipper is
running. Any excess hair and dirt that has accumulated
between the blades should come out. After cleaning, turn
your clipper off and dry blades with a clean dry cloth and
start clipping again. If upon cleaning your blades you find that
the blades will still not cut, there may be a few fine pieces of
hair trapped between the upper and lower blade. Hang or
store your Andis Clipper with the blades down so excess oil
will not run into the clipper case.
CAUTION: Never handle your Andis Clipper while you are operating a
water faucet, and never hold your clipper under a water faucet or in
water. There is danger of electrical shock and damage to your clipper.
ANDIS COMPANY will not be responsible in case of injury due to
this carelessness.
not be supplied with combs)
The clipper comb blade attachments mount easily. Just snap
them on. Snap them off. Combs help guide hair to cutting
blades and give you precise control of hair lengths. Each
comb allows a different length of cut which is indicated on the
combs: 1/16", 1/8", 1/4", and 3/8", 1/2", 3/4” & 1".
