If you’re experiencing a “chattering” or “rattling” when using your clipper blades this could be an indicator that its time to change out your hinge assembly. The hinge assembly for the Wahl Km5/Km10/Km cordless clippers is a “wearable” part that needs changing when the springs get weak. It holds the cutter of the clipper blade in place while the clipper blade cuts hair.

When the clipper blade is locked down on the clipper the vibration over time will cause wear to the sides of the hinge. This wear will affect the performance of the clipper and the blade.
If the blade appears loose on the latch or hinge then the hinge assembly should be changed as it is possibly getting worn.
These hinges have springs underneath which secures the blade lock and keeps the clipper blade snuggly locked down when using. Over time these springs do wear out and the blades will become more loose on the clipper. If you experience this then its time to change out your hinge assembly.
Replacing a worn-out hinge assembly can save you both time and money in the long run. A clipper with a worn-out hinge will require more effort to get the job done and extend grooming times. Changing out the assembly will put less stress on your clipper, resulting in better and faster results for all of your grooming needs.
