CONAIR GMT100RDCS Beard/Mustache Trimmer

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

  1. Always purchase the correct size and grade of battery most suitable for the intended use.
  2. Replace all batteries of a set at the same time.
  3. Clean the battery contacts and also those of the device prior to battery installation.
  4. Ensure the batteries are installed correctly with regard to polarity (+ and -).
  5. Remove batteries from equipment which is not to be used for an extended period of time.
  6. Remove used batteries promptly.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Remove the battery compartment cover by pushing in and down toward the bottom of the trimmer.
  2. Align the AA batteries with the positive and negative positions indicated inside the battery compartment. Being careful not to bend the clips, insert the negative end of each battery first so it will slip easily into position.
  3. Return the battery cover to its original position by pushing it in and up until you hear a small click as it locks into place.
  4. To use your trimmer, push ON/OFF switch upwards to ON position.
  5. After you finish using your trimmer, push down on the ON/OFF switch to turn the trimmer off.
    OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
    • Requires 2 AA batteries (not included). We recommend using alkaline batteries in your trimmer because they last longer.
      Do not mix old and new batteries. Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon zinc), or rechargeable (nickel cadmium) batteries.

OILING THE BLADES

About once a month you should oil the trimmer blades. It is best to do this over a piece of newspaper. Turn the trimmer on and hold it so that the blades are pointed downward. Spread one drop of oil across the blades, then turn the trimmer off and wipe away the excess oil with a soft cloth. Be careful not to use too much oil and don’t oil your trimmer more than necessary, as this could damage the motor. (Never attempt to oil the motor bearing as it is permanently lubricated.) Keep oil out of reach of children.

BLADE CARE

Because the trimmer blades are precision made for a very special use, they should always be handled with care. This trimmer comes with a removable blade set for easy cleaning. To remove the blades follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the trimmer is off, and the batteries have been removed.
  2. With the power switch facing you, gently push up under the blades until they pop off.
  3. To replace, align the tabs on the bottom of the blades inside the mounting area on the back of the trimmer and push down until the blades snap into place. Each time you finish using the trimmer, take the cleaning brush provided and brush away any loose hair that has collected in the blades. Then store the trimmer until the next use. Be especially careful when changing or adjusting blades. When you have your trimmer serviced, be sure that all blades are sharpened or replaced at the same time.
    To promote the long life of the appliance, use your trimmer only for the purpose intended by the manufacturer to trim your beard and mustache.

GROWING A BEARD AND MUSTACHE

There are three key factors that determine which beard or mustache style is most suitable for your face:

  1. The shape and dimensions of your face.
  2. The natural growth of your beard/mustache.
  3. The thickness of your beard/mustache.
    If you are unsure of the type of beard or mustache that most suits your face, speak with a professional hair stylist and ask for an opinion on what style would be best.

TYPE OF BEARD/MUSTACHE

TYPE OF BEARD/MUSTACHE

Once your beard or mustache has been styled, it is essential that you maintain its appearance. To do this, use your shaper to trim your beard/ mustache weekly.
For the best trimming results, your beard should
be slightly damp (not wet) before using the trimmer. This will prevent the trimmer from removing more hair than desired.

OUTLINING YOUR BEARD

  1. It is always best to begin with a clean, slightly damp beard.
  2. After you have combed through your beard in the direction it grows naturally, you will want to outline the desired shape, beginning under your jawline.

  3. Begin defining your beard’s shape under your chin and work upward on each side of your face toward your ears. Then define the upper outline of your beard across your cheeks, past your sideburns and toward your hairline.

NOW YOU ARE READY TO TRIM YOUR BEARD

TRIM YOUR BEARD

  1. Your trimmer adjusts to five positions so you can have a beard length from 1/8″ (shortest) to 5/8″ (longest).
  2. To use the 5-position comb, slide it over the trimmer blades and snap down into position. At first, until you become familiar with the adjustments, use the longest trim setting (5/8″). (You can always go back and make your beard a little shorter.)
  3. Begin trimming your beard using smooth, even strokes. Start with your sideburns and work downward toward your chin. (Never attempt to trim against the natural growth of your beard, because the hair will be cut too short.)
  4. If you decide you want a closer trim, you can now adjust the 5-position comb to a shorter setting (such as 1/2″ or 3/8″) and go over your beard again until you achieve the desired length.

TO TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE

TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE

  1. For best results, start with a clean, slightly damp mustache.
  2. Comb through your mustache in the direction it grows.
  3. Place the 5-position comb over the trimmer blades and snap it into position. It is a good idea to start with the longest trim setting adjustment. (You can always go back and cut your mustache more closely with a shorter setting.)

ALWAYS TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE FROM THE TOP DOWN

TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE

After your mustache has been trimmed to the desired length, remove the 5-way trimming attachment and, using the blades only, define the outline of the bottom of your mustache.

USING THE NOSE/EAR HAIR ATTACHMENT

Make sure the trimmer on/off switch is in the “off” position. Detach the normal trimming blade (see section on Blade Care). Fit the tab on the back of the nose/ear hair attachment into the notch inside the trimmer head. Push the attachment towards the front of the trimmer until it snaps into place. Turn the on/off switch to the “on” position. While detaching the attachment, make sure the power switch is facing you and press the attachment away from you.

TROUBLESHOOTING

There are several things to look for if your trimmer fails to operate:

  1. Be sure the trimmer is turned ON.
  2. Make sure that the batteries are properly placed in the battery compartment. Test the batteries to be sure they are working. (For optimum trimmer operation, always replace all two AA batteries at the same time.)
  3. Check the blades to see if they are clogged with hair clippings; if so, use the cleaning brush to remove hair.
  4. If the trimmer still fails to operate, take or send it to a Conair Service Center (see warranty procedure and addresses).
