switching it on.

Using the appliance
Clipping with comb attachment
The hair length after cutting is indicated in millimetres on the display.

Make sure that the arms of the comb attachment have been properly slid
into the grooves on both sides.
	2		Set the comb to the desired hair length (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 or 21
millimetres) by turning the length lock (Fig. 6).
	3		Switch on the appliance (Fig. 7).
Tips
We advise you to start clipping at the highest setting and to reduce
the hair length in small steps until you reach the desired hair length.
If a lot of hair has accumulated in the comb, remove the comb
attachment and blow and/or shake the hair from the comb. Removing
the comb does not change the selected hair length setting.
Write down the hair length settings used to create a certain hairstyle
as a reminder for future clipping sessions.
Clipping without comb attachment:
You can use the clipper without comb attachment to contour the
neckline and the area around the ears.
Remove the comb attachment by pulling it off the appliance (Fig. 8).
Never pull at the flexible top of the comb attachment.Always pull at the
bottom part.
The comb attachment keeps the cutting unit at a certain distance
from your head.This means that, if you use the clipper without the
comb attachment, your hair will be cut off very close to the skin.
Cleaning
Clean the appliance every time you have used it.
Do not use abrasives, scourers or liquids such as alcohol, petrol or
acetone to clean the appliance.
The appliance and the adapter may only be cleaned with the brush
supplied.
	1		Switch off the appliance and unplug it before you clean it.
	2		Remove the comb attachment by pulling it off the appliance (Fig. 8).
