Kambrook Safety

Read all instructions before operating and save for future reference

Welcome to Kambrook and your new Hair Clipper Kit.

At Kambrook we believe that the safe performance of our products is the first priority in any consumer product so that you, our valued customer, can confidently use and trust our products.

We ask that any electrical appliance that you use be operated in a sensible fashion with due care and attention placed on the following important operating instructions:

Ensure that the power source to be used is the same as the voltage requirements of the product.

Never immerse the power cord or the appliance in any form of liquid and do not use near bath tubs, basins or other vessels containing water.

This appliance is not intended to use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.

Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with this appliance.

This hair clipper is for household use only, and not for animal clipping or shearing.

The hair clipper may be plugged into any 230/240V power outlet. It should not be left unattended when plugged in.

Always switch the hair clipper off then switch off and unplug from the power outlet when not in use and before cleaning.

Disconnect by gripping the plug and do not pull the cord.

Do not place or store the hair clipper where it can fall or be pulled into a bath tub or sink. If the hair clipper falls into water, unplug it immediately. Do not reach into the water.

The hair clipper has arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use in areas where petrol, paints, aerosols, oxygen or other inflammable substances are used or stored.

Keep the power cord and unit away from hot or heated surfaces.

Do not pull, twist or wrap the power cord around the casing, when using or storing the hair clipper. Periodically check the cord for signs of wear.

Do not operate the hair clipper if it has been dropped or damaged in any manner.

Regularly inspect the power cord, plug and actual appliance for any damage. If found damaged in any way, immediately cease use of the appliance and return the entire appliance to the nearest authorised Kambrook Service Centre for examination, replacement or repair.

Please call 1300 139 798 for service centre details.

Never drop or insert any object into any opening, as this may cause an electrical hazard.

Always switch the hair clipper OFF before putting down on any surface.

To avoid injury, do not use the hair clipper with a damaged or broken comb nor with teeth missing from the blades.

Use the hair clipper only as described in this instruction book. The use of attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may cause a hazard.

Keep blades regularly oiled and clean blades after each use.

If the appliance is connected to an extension cord or power board then the extension cord or power board should be positioned so that it is not subject to splashing or contact with moisture.

The installation of a residual current (RCD) is recommended to provide additional safety protection when using electrical appliances. It is also advisable that an RCD with a rated

residual operating current not exceeding 30mA be installed in the electrical circuit supplying the bathroom. Consult with your electrician for professional advise.

Adjustable Lever

CLOSE

LONG

The adjustable lever adds versatility to your hair clipper by allowing you to gradually adjust the closeness of your cut without using an attachment comb.

When the lever is in the uppermost position, the blade will give you the closest cut. To increase the cutting length, push the lever downward gradually.

The lever extends the variety of lengths that can be achieved with each attachment comb, by using the varying cutting edges with each attachment comb.

Attachment COMBS

Attachment combs should be fitted to the hair clipper by placing the top edge (comb edge) of the attachment comb over the top of the cutting blades.

Gently lift the tab at the other end of the attachment comb and push down until a click is heard.

Attachment Comb #1

leaves hair approximately 3mm (1/8”) in length

Attachment Comb #2

leaves hair approximately 6mm (1/4”) in length

Attachment Comb #3

leaves hair approximately 9mm (3/8”) in length

Attachment Comb #4

leaves hair approximately 12mm (1/2”) in length

Using Your Kambrook Hair

Clipper

Before Use

Before starting to cut your hair, follow these simple steps . . .

1.Make sure the blades are clean and well oiled. Unwind the cord to its full length, ensure that the on/off switch is in the OFF position, and plug the clipper into a 230/240V power outlet. You may then proceed to turn the power on.

2.Place a towel around the neck of the person who’s hair is being cut to prevent hair from falling inside the shirt collar.

3.Position the person in a chair so that his/her head is at your eye level

4.Comb the hair to remove all the tangles and hold the clipper in a relaxed, comfortable grip to help you maintain accurate cutting control.

5.Ensure that the blades are free of any hair clippings and that they are well oiled (see maintaining your Kambrook Clipper on page 5).

Take special note of the following tips to ensure you achieve the best cut possible….

1.For Uniform cutting, never push or force the hair clipper through the hair at a fast speed. The hair clipper works most efficiently when it runs at its own speed.

2.Initially cut only a small amount of hair until you become accustomed to the length each attachment leaves the hair.

3.The entire procedure requires practice and it is suggested to try the longest attachment comb on their hair clipper first. Then use the shorter one if a shorter length is desired.

Cutting your hair

Medium to Long Cut (with attachment combs)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A-1

 

A-2

 

A-3

A-4

1.Begin by combing your hair in its natural direction.

2.Place the largest attachment comb onto the hair clipper and start by trimming the sides from the bottom upwards. Hold the hair clipper lightly

against the hair with the teeth of the attachment comb pointing up but flat against the head. Slowly lift the hair clipper up and outward through

the hair, cutting only a small amount at a time. (Diagram A-1)

3.Repeat around sides and back of head. (Diagram A-2&A-3)

4.If you desire a shorter cut, either change to a lower number attachment comb or apply more pressure and less lift away from the head with the attachment comb already in use.

5.For the top of the head, you will give a fairly short cut if you use the #4 attachment comb. With the teeth flat against the head, slowly start trimming from the front to the back (Diagram A-4)

Outlining

B-1B-2

1.Outlining requires no attachment comb. Take the hair clipper and push the lever up to the close

– cut position (see “adjustable lever”)

2.Comb hair into the style. Position hair clipper between the side burns and the ear. (Diagram B-1)

3.Make sure the corner edge of the blade is up against the hairline. With the outline of the hair as your guide, slowly move the hair clipper over, around and behind the ears. (Diagram B-2)

4.For the back of the neck and side burns, hold the clipper up side down, and holding it against the skin at the length desired, move downwards.

Short Cuts

1.Always cut from the back of the neck to the crown, using the longest attachment comb. Holding it flat against the head, slowly move the hair clipper up from the hair. (Diagram C-1)

2.Use the same technique for the sides, cutting from the bottom to the upper side of the head.

3.From the front to the crown, cut the hair against the direction in which it grows. Then even it up with the sides. (Diagram C-2)

4.To taper hair down to the neckline, use closer cutting attachment combs. Comb hair, check for uneven spots and outline sideburns and neckline. (Diagram C-3)

5.If a short tapered cut on the sides and back is desired, follow the diagram below and change attachments as illustrated. (Diagram C-4)

Maintaining your Kambrook Hair Clipper

Cleaning

After you have finished using your hair clipper, rapidly move the adjustable lever up and down a couple of times while the hair clipper is still

running to remove any hair that may be caught in between the blades. Switch off the appliance and power outlet. Then, unplug your hair clipper and clean the blades with the brush supplied.

Oiling

To maintain the hair clipper in peak condition, the blades should be regularly oiled before, during and after every haircut. A substitute/ replacement for the clipper oil supplied in the kit is household sewing machine oil.

NOTE: Do not use hair oil, grease, oil mixed with kerosene or solvent, as these may slow down the motion of the blade.

To oil the blades, gently squeeze a few drops of oil between the blade teeth and turn the clipper on, checking that the clipper is running smoothly.
