Your clipper or trimmer - whatever its make - will at some point require servicing and may at any time need to be repaired in the event of some “accident” taking place.
Clippers, which are in frequent use, need to be serviced accordingly and in such situations probably at least once a year - preferably before your animal’s clipping season starts. Traditionally servicing and repairs reach their peak on midnight of the start of every clipping season and quite naturally every one is urgent! Try therefore to plan ahead!
When you are making enquires about a problem with your machine it helps to be positive and constructive with the information about the fault/s. “It has stopped” is not as helpful as “It stopped after slowing down, emitting a sheet of blue flames from the rear end and smelling strongly of burning rubber” This immediately indicates a “non starter” with potential electrical problems!
CHECK SIMPLE THINGS LIKE:
- If the machine has stopped cutting – does the cutter blade
still move? In which case the machine still works maybe it’s the
- If the clipper has stopped i.e. switched off - has the re-set
button been tried? (If there is one of course!)
- If the clipper has stopped i.e. switched off – check the plug
- Check the cable for cuts or any noticeable damage.
- If it’s a smell of burning or a sighting of smoke - just switch
off and remove the plug – you need assistance! Clipping is over
- Have a look and see if you lost “your drive block” Clipping
comes to an abrupt end without one! (assuming your machine uses
At a minimum try to have readily available
the following information when asked:
Do give as much info as you can. It helps us to save wasting your MONEY on a possible problem which should not have may be occurred.
In most cases if the repairs are likely to exceed the normal service figure current at the time you will be contacted and your instructions sought before the work is commenced (at least that is the Peasridge way!) Alternatively you can request an estimate of the likely cost when sending the machine in for repair.
Please note that Government legislation requires an electrical test to be conducted on machines over one year old. This is done automatically at the time of servicing/repairing.
