    SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS This unit is designed for commercial use


  1. Be sure the clipper is switched to “Off” (downward position) before placing it in the recharge stand.
  2. Make sure cord is not twisted or kinked while unit is charging or being stored.
  3. This unit is designed for commercial use.
  4. It is normal for the unit to become somewhat warm during normal use.
  5. Put a small drop of Wahl Clipper Oil between the blades after each use. Oil should be applied while the clipper is running. After cutting wet hair, clean the blades and apply a small drop of Wahl Clipper Oil before placing the unit back in the charging stand. Use Wahl Clipper Oil ONLY.
  6. To clean the unit, use either a clean, dry or dampened cloth. DO NOT USE benzine or thinner to clean unit.
  7. Do not store the clipper in a wet or moist environment.
  8. To prolong blade life, do not use clipper on hair that is coated with a permanent wave solution or hair spray.
  9. Do not touch any of the internal mechanisms. If the unit should need repair, do not attempt to repair it yourself. Return it to Wahl Clipper Corporation.


  • If your rechargeable clipper does not seem to be operating or charging properly, please check the following:
  • Check the outlet’s current by plugging another appliance (one you know is in proper working condition) into the outlet.
  • Make sure the unit is not connected to a power source that turns itself off when lights are turned off.
  • Make sure the clipper and recharging stand contacts are clean and free of hair or other contaminants.
  • Verify the clipper is properly seated in the charger with the switch on the clipper turned to the “OFF-O)” position. Verify that the blade assembly moves freely and is mounted properly.
  • If you still encounter problems with your unit, ship both your clipper and its recharging stand, prepaid, to our factory with a note explaining the problem:
  • Attn: Repair Department
    Wahl Annex
    3001 North Locust
    P.O. Box 578
    Sterling, IL 61081



  • To remove the blades, hold the clipper firmly in one hand. Using the thumb of your hand, simply push the blades away from the front of the clipper. The blades and the mounting plate behind them will all come off in one piece.
  • To clean hair that may have become clogged between the blades, brush between the blades with the cleaning brush provided. Always be sure to oil between the blades before each use.



To adjust blade, use 5-level cutting adjustment lever to adjust length of blade from 0,7mm to 3mm.


The cord should never be used to pull the clipper. Freedom of movement needs to be maintained. Care should be used to keep the cord untwisted, and undamaged.
When stored, the cord should be coiled and placed neatly in a dry place.


Before the equipment is used for the first time, it should be charged 3-5 hours. Connect power cord plug into a receptacle in back of stand and place clipper in stand so nameplate faces forward. (Not all units have recharge stands. To recharge these units, plug power cord directly into unit.) Be sure clipper is switched OFF when charging. During charging, the charge indicator is illuminated. The charge indicator will begin to blink when almost fully charged and may shut off when fully charged. Recommendation: the batteries should only be recharged when the performance of the equipment has deteriorated noticeably. Note: If the unit is fully charged and is placed in the stand to charge, the LED may not turn on. This does not indicate the unit can no longer charge. It means the unit does not need to draw electricity because it is already fully charged.


Switch on the equipment using the on/off switch and, after use, switch it off again. When the battery is fully charged, the equipment can be used for up to 90 minutes.


  • For battery replacement send the entire, intact clipper unit to: Wahl Annex 3001 North Locust, P.O. Box 578, Sterling, IL 61081 Do not attempt to remove the battery. Lithium-Ion batteries can explode, catch fire, and/or cause burns if disassembled, damaged, or exposed to water or high temperatures.
  • If you choose not to send the appliance in for battery replacement, the entire, intact clipper unit must be disposed of.
  • Do not attempt to remove the battery for disposal.
  • Lithium-Ion batteries may be subject to local disposal regulations. Many locations prohibit disposal in standard waste receptacles. Check your local laws and regulations.
  • For recycling contact a government recycling agency, waste disposal service, or retailer, or visit online recycling sources.
