How To Repair A Hair Clipper

A hair clipper can be used to give the head, face, arms, and legs a neat appearance. If you are not satisfied with your clipper's performance, then it is time to repair it. This blog will explain how to repair a hair clipper.

What Is A Hair Clipper?

A hair clipper is a hand-held device that is used to cut hair. The blades are attached to a handle, which can be adjusted to match the length of the user’s hair. The clipper is most commonly used on men’s and boys’ hair, although it can be used on women’s hair as well. Hair clippers come in different sizes, ranging from small ones for children all the way up to large ones for adults. They are also available in different colors, so you can choose which one suits your style best!

Make Sure Your Hair Clipper Is Off

Make sure the clipper is turned off before opening up any parts of the device or making any adjustments. This will avoid any accidents while working with electricity. During normal use hair clippers are not dangerous however you always want to be extra careful when tinkering with the electrical parts.

Figuring Out What Is Wrong

If your hair clipper isn't working, it's time to troubleshoot. Start by figuring out what is wrong and then moving on to troubleshooting. If the clipper will not turn on, first make sure that it has been plugged in and that there are no blown fuses. If it still won't turn on, check the cord for any visible damage or fraying. If there is no visible damage, plug the clipper in somewhere else to see if it turns on. If so, you may have a problem with your outlet or power supply. In this case, please contact an electrician for further assistance. If the clipper turns on but does not cut hair, first check all of the connections between the clipper blades and motor housing for loose screws or other parts that may be causing problems with connection integrity. If none of these connections appear to be loose or broken, you may need to replace some parts or take apart your clipper entirely in order to repair it properly.

Things To Check Before Starting A Repair

The first thing you want to do is make sure that your hair clipper is actually repairable. If they have been dropped or damaged in some way, it's probably not worth it. Check the housing and make sure that it isn't cracked or dented in any capacity. The motor should be free of any obstructions and should turn freely when given a small tap on the end with your finger. The blades themselves should be free of rust and other debris as well as aligned properly.

Trying To Repair A Hair Clipper Yourself

The first thing you'll want to do is remove all screws from around the housing of your clipper. You'll need a Phillips head screwdriver for these parts but if your set didn't come with one, they're relatively inexpensive at any hardware store. Once all of the screws are removed, pull apart the two halves of your clipper until you see where they connect at the back, usually with a large metal clip. Once this connection has been severed, pull apart further until each half comes completely apart. 

Getting Your Hair Clipper Repaired 

It is more convenient than having to buy an entirely new one because your current one is still working fine except for minor problems. There are times when people try to fix their own appliances at home but they end up making the problem worse instead of fixing it entirely. That is why we recommend bringing your device first before attempting any repairs on your own.
