Charging the Battery
Remove the clipper and lithium-ion battery pack from the carton.
To remove a battery pack from the clipper, squeeze latches on either side of clipper to release and pull out battery.
Fully charge the battery for one hour before first use. Align the ribs on the front and left back side of the battery pack with the matching grooves in the charging pocket. Push the battery, contact side down, firmly into the charging pocket. The button on the front of the charge pops up when the battery pack is securely inserted in the pocket.
The three white lights alongside the charging pocket are charging indicators that display the battery's approximate charge level. When all three lights are lit, the charging system has completed fast and switched to a reduced charging rate to fill the battery completely. This maximizes safety and battery life. All three lights remain on for a few additional minutes during this finishing charge. A fully depleted battery will charge completely in about one hour. The charging indicator lights turn off when the battery pack is removed from the charging pocket.
To remove the battery pack from the charger, push down on the button to release battery pack. Pull the battery pack from the charging pocket and insert into clipper, noting the ribs on the battery pack align with grooves inside the clipper (similar to the charger). The battery pack will "click" into place when fully inserted into the clipper.
The start switch has a locking feature to prevent the clipper from being accidentally turned ON or OFF. To turn the clipper ON, press the small red button on the start switch and slide switch forward. The switch is textured for a sure grip even with sweaty or oily hands. To turn the clipper OFF, press the small red button and slide the switch back.
When switched on, the glowing blue lens on the clipper housing indicates the battery pack has a strong charge. The blue light turns off when several minutes of power remain. This is simply a caution that the battery may not have enough remaining charge to finish a large clipping job and may need to be recharged.
If extended clipping continues, the battery pack will shut itself off to prevent the internal lithium-ion cell from discharging completely. This protects the lithium-ion cell and is entirely normal - not a malfunction. The battery pack will resume normal operation when recharged.
When not in use, rest your clipper - with or without the lithium-ion battery pack attached - in the storage pocket of the charger. This reduces the chances your clipper will be knocked to the floor and damaged.
Adjusting the Blade Set
This clipper features an adjustable blade set. Lines on the clipper indicate the five cutting positions. For the shortest cut, use your thumb to align the lever with the shortest line on the clipper housing. The lever will click into place. To cut the least amount of hair, align the lever with the longest line on the clipper housing.
Mounting and Dismounting the Blade Set
The blade set can be attached with the start switch in the OFF or ON position. When removing the blade, turn the clipper OFF. Push the blade away from the clipper with your thumb, and the blade will pop off. To replace or change the blade set, fit the black plastic tab on the blade set into the notch located at the bottom of the clipper opening. Firmly push the blade onto the clipper housing, and it will snap into place.
Use Guidelines for Charger and Battery Pack
The lithium-ion battery pack included with your clipper does not develop a "memory effect" like a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), or nickel cadmium (NiCd) battery. You can return the battery to the charger at any time for a full charge, or even use the battery before a charge cycle is complete. Like most rechargeable batteries, lithium-ion batteries perform best when used frequently.
For maximum battery life, store the lithium-ion battery pack in a partially discharged condition if the unit will be unused for several months. To discharge the battery, run the clipper just until the blue light turns off.
If the battery pack is left in the charger for several days without use, it is normal for the topmost of the three white lights on the charger to repeatedly turn off and back on again. The charger will occasionally check the battery and maintain a full charge.
The charger works most effectively when battery packs are at, or close to, room temperature. When returned to the charger unusually hot or cold, it may take more than an hour to completely recharge the battery.
Avoid locating the charger near heat vents, radiators, or in direct sunlight. Optimum charging will result where the temperature is stable.
Many factors influence lithium-ion battery pack life. A battery pack that has received heavy use or is more than a year old may not give the same run-time performance as a new battery pack.
New lithium-ion packs, or packs unused for a period of time, may not accept a full charge. This is normal and does not indicate a problem. The battery will accept a full charge after several cycles of clipper use and recharging.
Disconnect the charger from the AC outlet if extended periods of non-use are anticipated.
Care and Servicing of your Andis Clipper Blades
The internal mechanism of your clipper is permanently lubricated at the factory. Other than the recommended maintenance described here, no other maintenance is needed or should be performed, except by an Andis authorized service station. Depending upon use, the blade set of your Andis clipper will deliver 6 months of service before it needs to be replaced.
To prevent injury, always replace broken or nicked blades.
Andis clippers operate at high speeds. For greater convenience, purchase an additional blade set to substitute for a hot blade set. Check often for blade heat, especially when the blade housing is adjusted for close cutting.
To get the maximum run time from your lithium-ion battery, oil clipper blades before, during, and after each use. Blades that leave streaks or slow down may need oil. Place a few drops of oil on the front and side of the cutter blades. Thoroughly wipe excess oil off blades with a soft, dry cloth to prevent oil from dripping down into the clipper housing.
Clean the blade using a small brush or toothbrush. Periodically, clean blades by immersing the BLADES ONLY into a shallow pan of Andis Clipper Oil, while the clipper is running. Excess hair and dirt that has accumulated between the blades should release.
After cleaning, turn off clipper and dry blades with a clean, dry cloth and resume clipping. If, after cleaning, blades will still not cut, a few, fine pieces of hair may be trapped between the upper and lower blades. Remove the blade set from the clipper, hold the blade set in one hand, and slide the blade from side to side to release any trapped hair or debris.
CAUTION: Do not hold clipper under running water to clean blades. There is danger of electrical shock and damage to the clipper. Andis Company is not responsible for injury or product damage that results from this method of cleaning.
Pet clippers are perfect for those finishing touches around the face, leg feathers, and feet, clippers are essential for long-haired dogs, and ideal for achieving a breed standard look on schnauzers and poodles.
