Wahl 9893L, 9893LP - Rechargeable Grooming Kit Manual
- This trimmer is conveniently designed for household use. It should be allowed to charge completely before its first use.
- Remove the trimmer, USB cable (and/or) power supply unit (charger) and accessories from the packing material.
- Connect the charging device (USB or charger) to the trimmer.
- Plug in the charging device:
Charger: to any convenient electrical outlet at the correct voltage.
USB (9893LP Only): to certified device such as on a computer, receptacle, lamp, class 2 power supply or automotive adapter.
Never use an unapproved USB source.
If your trimmer does not seem to take a charge, check the following before returning it for repair:
- Check outlet to make sure it is working by plugging in another appliance.
- Make sure the outlet simply is not connected to a light switch which turns the power at the outlet off when lights are turned off.
- Be sure the trimmer is properly connected to the charging device, all connections are secure and the trimmer is turned off.
- If your electricity is connected to a master power switch, we suggest the trimmer be disconnected from the charger anytime the master switch is off. Leaving the unit plugged into a dead outlet or an unplugged charger will drain the battery.
- If trimmer does not run and it is completely charged, turn the unit "ON - I" and pinch or push the blades manually. (Oil may have dried out between the blades, so they may be temporarily stuck together.)

CARING FOR YOUR DEVICE
For best results, use Wahl Clipper Oil on the blades only when necessary, or approximately once a month. Motor bearings are permanently lubricated—do not attempt to oil.
When oiling your trimmer, turn the trimmer "ON - I," hold the unit with the blades facing DOWN and squeeze three drops across the front of the blade and one drop on each side on the heel of the blade. Wipe off excess oil with soft cloth.
NOTICE—DO NOT OVER OIL!
Excessive oiling or application of liquids will cause damage if allowed to seep back into motor.
Trimmer blades have precision-hardened, ground and lapped cutting teeth. Blades should be handled carefully and never bumped or used to cut dirty or abrasive material. Clean with the included brush.
Before storing your trimmer, use the cleaning brush to whisk any loose hairs from the unit and the blades. Store unit in such a manner so that blades are protected from damage.
When the trimmer is not in use, the trimmer blade guard attachment should be in place to protect the blades.
This appliance should be stored in a manner where it is not subjected to crushing, heating above 100°C (212°F), or incineration.
Your trimmer has been designed with several advanced features to help you get perfect results every time you trim. Your trimmer may be used to neatly trim goatees, beards, mustaches, neckline, sideburns around the ears and eyebrows, or anywhere you may need grooming. It also makes a great all-around family trimmer for light haircuts and touch ups between trips to the barber or to clean up the shape of the neck.
- Soft-Touch Grip allows you to hold the trimmer in a comfortable position for precision trimming.
- Multi-Position Trimming Guide (not included in all kits) makes achieving a consistent trim easy every time. The guide can be removed and reattached without changing the preset cutting length, so once you have found the perfect length, there's no guesswork in achieving it every trim. The trimming guide is a two-piece assembly, consisting of a base and a comb. It should not be disassembled.
To attach the guide, simply slide it on at a slight angle and press the release tab down to secure in position. To remove the guide, gently push up on the release tab and slide the assembly away from the trimmer. Adjust the trimming length by pressing on the thumb lever and moving the comb forward or backward to the desired setting.
- Detachable Blade System enables you to quickly change from a standard-width blade for full grooming to a narrow-width blade for detail trimming around a mustache, goatee, or anywhere to define the hair line and clip any stray whiskers.
To remove attachment, simply pull top edge of blade away from body unit. To attach, align back tab of attachment head to cavity on the inner edge of trimmer unit and push down on top of blade.
Should blades become damaged or dull or if you want additional attachment heads for your trimmer, you may purchase them from Wahl. You may order additional heads online at www.WahlUSA.com.
- Self-Sharpening Blades are made to maintain their shape and sharpness for extended periods.
TRIMMING WITH ATTACHMENT COMBS
These attachments are ideal for blending, tapering and defining beards, as well as for achieving a "close trim" stubble look around the face. To use the attachments, go with the hair direction. To achieve closer looks, go against the hair direction.
To attach guide combs, hold comb with the teeth up. Snap guide comb attachment firmly to the bottom of the trimmer blade.
TRIMMING AND EDGING YOUR BEARD
The following are suggested trimming steps and trimmer positions. You may find different procedures work better for you.
- Comb your beard in the direction that it grows to help reveal stray hairs that may be longer than the others.
- Attach a guide to trim and taper your beard. Begin with a guide of a long trimming length. Trim toward your chin in smooth, overlapping strokes, following the lay of your beard. If you trim against the way your beard naturally lays, the trimmer will cut the hair much shorter.
Change the trimming guides to progressively shorter lengths until you reach the desired length of beard. You may wish to trim closer near the ear and down under the chin, changing to a longer guide toward the front of the face and point of your chin.
- To cut the outline of your beard, remove the trimming guide comb. Starting under your chin and working back toward your jawbone and ears, cut the outer perimeter of your beard underneath the jawbone. Continue the line all the way up to the ears and hairline.
- Accentuate your beard line by using the trimmer in a downward motion. Start at the line you've created and, working from the chin back toward the ears, trim the area right under your beard line.
- For a neater finished look, attach the detail blade. Use this blade for fine, detail trimming anywhere it is needed, such as at the sideburns near the ears, goatees, etc.
DETAILING NECKLINES, SIDEBURNS,MUSTACHES & BEARDS
Slowly move trimmer downward on desired areas to neatly trim and shape.
TRIMMING ARM & LEG HAIR
Simply glide the trimmer over your arm or leg until desired hair length is achieved. The first time you trim the hair, start by using a longer guide comb on the trimmer, then use progressively shorter settings if a shorter length is preferred.
TRIMMING CHEST & STOMACH
Glide the trimmer over your torso region, in an upward motion until desired hair length is achieved. For tight, scratch-free trimming, use the #1/4 guide comb.
For the closest look, after trimming, attach the shaver head. The shaver makes for the perfect tool to groom the total body. Using the same technique, as mentioned prior, you can groom wherever you feel a need. Shave against hair growth while stretching the skin. After every use, remove the shaver foil by pressing both side buttons and carefully using cleaning brush provided.
TRIMMING PRIVATE AREAS
- Volume reduction using trimmer head. Attach guide comb and select a long trimming length. Begin trimming, starting at the top and working down. Use progressively closer settings to get the "look" and length you prefer.
- For hard to reach or tight areas, use the detailer head. Always pull skin taut. Then slowly move the detailer through area to trim until desired look is accomplished.
- Shave in your private areas by gently shaving in the desired area and always keep the skin taut.
TRIMMING NOSE HAIR
Make sure the nasal passages are clean. Slowly move the ear/nose trimmer in and out of each nostril, no more than 1/4-inch deep.
TRIMMING EAR HAIR
Make sure the outer areas of the ears do not contain any wax. Hold the ear flat with one hand and carefully insert ear/nose trimmer no more than 1/4-inch into the outer ear.
Do not insert the detailer or any other foreign object into the inner ear. For hair growing on the outside of the ear, simply move the detailer slowly along the edges of the ear.
Slowly move detailer to neatly trim stray hairs. For precise, even trimming, slowly move the detailer closer or farther away from eyebrows to achieve desired length. Do not press against brow as it may remove too much hair.
- Start at the temple and cut all the way around the head to establish the ultimate location of the fade line. Always cut against the grain for the shortest cut. Don't force the blade through the hair. Let the trimmer do the work.
- Next, cut around the head again and up the nape of the neck to the fade line, brushing away the cut hair as you go. Pull the scalp taut with the thumb for the closest cut. Turn the trimmer upside down when necessary to keep cutting against the grain. Make sure both sides of the head are even.
- For the top of the head, cut with the grain using the individual guide comb attachments. The smaller the number of the comb, the shorter the cut. Comb or brush the hair as you cut for an even end result.
- To complete the fade, blend the hair at the fade line by trimming up and out across the line and against the grain all the way around the head. Then, repeat all around, turning the trimmer upside down and cutting downward. The final objective is to blend the hair so there is no real line, just a perfect fade from bald to very short hair. You can achieve this by using the #1 guide comb attachment. Continue combing and cutting until you achieve the desired effect.
- To create a part, pick a spot off-center. Pull the scalp tight and with the end of the blade perpendicular to the head, move the trimmer back and forth to cut a line. Comb through it and cut again to make sure the cut is precise.
