My Clipper or Trimmer is outside of the warranty repair period – can it still be repaired?
Yes, in 99% of cases your Clipper or Trimmer can be repaired.
My Clipper/Trimmer seems to pull the hair rather than cut it – does this mean it needs new blades?
This is not a simple answer as several factors influence the cutting performance of your clipper:
1) Apply 2 drops of clipper oil to the blades and test cut again. (Oil lubricates the blades and allows them to run at the correct speed. It also helps the clipper run cooler.) Refer to our Blade Care Guideline
2) For CORDED CLIPPERS ONLY - To ensure your clipper is running at maximum power you will have to tune it to the power supply in your location. (This is because our power supply varies by +/- 10%) You will need a Flat Head or Phillips Head screw driver to do the adjustment. \ Watch Video Tutorial
How often should I oil my Clippers & Trimmers?
IMPORTANT: In order to ensure that you get the longest life and best performance out of your clipper or trimmer; we recommend that you oil your unit before each use. To oil properly, the unit should be held in such a way that the blades are in a downward position. With the Clipper or Trimmer blade running, dispense 2-3 drops of oil across the top blade (Use Wahl Clipper Oil ONLY! Other oils will gum up the blades). Wipe the excess oil so it does not run into the motor compartment. Oil in the motor compartment will eventually lead to a poor motor performance. Blades should be oiled after using disinfectant or sanitizing solution.

How do I clean and align my clipper or trimmer blades?
The best way to clean your blades is to simply hold your unplugged clipper at a downward angle and wipe off the excess hair with a cleaning brush, followed with a drop of oil. Also make sure to unscrew the blades and brush out any cut hairs that may be jamming the blades. Reattach blades and adjust blade alignment which needs to be reset after removing the blades or tuning your clipper, as this will affect the blade alignment.

Can I use my professional blades to clip an animal?
We strongly recommend to NOT cross your blades between categories (Human and Animal) as they are made to be put on different kinds of clippers. Using an Animal Blade on a Human or a Human Blade on an Animal can damage your high-quality tools.
Can I buy Wahl clippers/trimmers/hairdryers from overseas to use in my country?

Using a high voltage appliance on a power supply it is not designed for will cause damage to the appliance and may cause personal harm. Any item purchased from an international supplier will not have the individual countries Safety approval, hence it will not be covered by any warranty or insurance should a major fault occur.
