My hair is getting clogged in the Philips Hair Clipper
Published on 09 March 2023
If you hair is getting clogged in your Hair Clipper, the troubleshooting tips below may help you find a solution.
We recommend you follow the steps in the order listed below. In between steps, check to see if the issue is resolved before moving to the next.
1. Using incorrect attachment.
Your Philips Hair Clipper comes with two trimming combs, one for your hair and one for your beard.
Do not use the beard trimming comb on your hair, as it is not designed to trim long hair. Doing so can result in your hair getting stuck in the device.
2. Using incorrect length settings.
It is very important to adjust the length settings of your hair clipper correctly while you are cutting or trimming your hair.
For long hair please use high length settings.
3. Device is dirty.
Your Philips Hair Clipper needs to be cleaned regularly.
To thoroughly clean your hair clipper you can remove the attachments. The attachments can be rinsed under a tap.
Please clean the inside body of the hair clipper with the small brush provided.
Do not put water in the inside body of the hair clipper, as this will damage the device.
Are you still having issues with your Hair Clipper?
- If none of these tips help, your Hair Clipper may be damaged internally. We recommend that you request a repair or exchange for your Hair Clipper.
