The Andis Outliner is a premier hair trimmer that is ideal for use in professional establishments and in the home. At first and periodically, you may experience a "clatter" coming from your trimmer. This sound happens because upon manufacturing, the Andis Outliner was adjusted to the particular voltage settings of the factory where it was made. Variations in voltage deem it necessary to adjust your Outliner.

    Twist open the cap on the trimmer oil container and lightly oil the blades of your Andis Outliner.

    Locate the power screw on your trimmer. It should be opposite the power switch on the lower-part of the trimmer housing. Turn the power switch on.

  3. 3

    Turn the power screw counterclockwise with your flathead screwdriver until you hear a perpetual clattering from your trimmer. Proceed to turn the screw in the opposite direction until the clattering completely ceases. When this is complete, your Andis Outliner has been adjusted to its ideal setting.
