  1. Begin with removing the two Torx screws holding the metal clipper blade. Make sure to keep the screws in a secure location, they are small.

  3. Investigate the reason for failure, most of the time it’s because of accessive hair trapped in the mechanism like below. Remove the mechanism from the spring. Use a brush to gently remove the hair clippings.
  4. Clean everything. Insert the spring in the two holes holding the top blade and place it in the groove.
