If your electric Wahl Razor will not turn on, one problem could be the batter needs to be changed. In order to do this, the back must be unclipped and taken off. The battery is then attached in between two prongs. The battery is then removed and replaced with a Battery Set, 2 "AA" Ni-Cad 2.4. Once installed reattach the back of the shaver and push the power button.
If your electric Wahl razor has had the battery replaced and still will not turn on, the issue could be with the power cord. Replace the power cord with Wahl Charger 9854L, 9876L. Then attempt the charge and turn on the electric razor.
The Blades are jammed
If there is a jam with the Wahl Razor there could be something caught in the blades at the tip. In this case, the blades should be taken out, checked for hair, and replaced. The tips must be unclipped and removed. Then unscrew the top two screws and the remove the broken blades and replace with the new one. Once the blades are put back in, the tips are reattached and the razor should be good to go.
The blades could possibly be bent. In this case the previous steps would be followed and blades would be replaced. Wahl 1045 Precision Clipper Blade Set
Like the dead motor hairs could be stuck in the blades preventing them to move freely. Use the small brush to wipe away anything near the blades that could prevent it from moving and then apply the oil and try to use them. If nothing happens you must take apart the blades and replace them.
Trimmers Stopped working
Drained/ Dead Battery
If your trimmer won't turn on, especially if it has not been used recently, you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your trimmer into your charger and see if anything happens. Ideally your trimmer will recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its battery. If it will no longer charge, it must be replaced with a new battery.
Motor is dead
If the motor won’t move you might have just jammed it with small specs of hair. If you use the oil provided with the trimmer it will lube the motor and should solve the problem. If not then you can assume you must replace the motor.
Attachment stuck on the trimmer
If your attachments are stuck on the trimmer it just means you had put them on wrong and should take them off and put them on the right way. They are fairly durable so don’t worry about breaking them, if you do then just purchase a new set.
Blades to Attachment are jammed
If the attachments’ blades are jammed then like the normal blades just apply the oil provided in the kit and use the brush to remove any stray hairs or things that could be preventing the blades to move freely.

My stainless steel won't turn off. It's stuck on and will only turn off if I plug it in but when I unplug it then it goes back on. Please help.

My stainless steel is doing the exact same thing. It won't turn off. The only way to get it to shut off is to plug in the charger.

Same thing here...I send a communication to the company...any ideas? Let it die and recharge? Or is the switch defective?

Just purchased my Wahl trimmer yesterday at Costco. I charged it for the first time, turned it on and can't turn it off like others with the same complaint.
