Andis clippers getting very hot?

I have the super pricy Andis 2 speed clippers. For a while they were amazing! I have body clipped over 4 horses with them and I had to stop about every 10-15 minutes cause they would get hot. Completely normal. But now I clip one ear and I have to stop because they are so hot. Does anyone else have this issue? Do I need new clippers?

Are you using Klip Kool? It helps. A dog groomer always kept two sets on the go to trade off as each heated up.

Yes I use cooling spray along with I have 2 blades that I use to switch. Its just annoying that once im done with one blade, switch to cooler one, the cooler one gets hot very quickly. Then I end up waiting anyways cause the other one hasnt cooled down yet.

I have noticed mine get super hot quickly as well. It does get annoying. Especially when you have a horse who isn't a fan of ears being clipped.

After a near castastrophe in clipping his ears, I bought some Wahl mini clippers for the face and ears, and he falls asleep when I do his ears now. The Andis just got too hot, to be comfortable for him.

Not sure what to do about it. I do a full body clip on my mini about three times a year, and it would go much faster if I didn't have to keep giving the blades a cooldown break.

One would think that paying over 200$ for clippers means that they are good quality The main reason why I bought them is because the sales man claimed they do not get hot!

It sounds like they need sharpened (not surprising they get dirt ion them when used on a horse and used outdoor) and sprayed with a lubrication. Also a dog groomer story here. My boss used to keep two sets of each size, and switch off. She used W-D40 as lube, and had some kind of blade cleaner that you dunk the blade into and turn on. Sorry I don't think I ever looked at the tub to see what it was called.

Hmmm...mine appear to be doing the same thing :( They too were wonderful when I got them, and now heat up after clipping one bridle path. Not sure what the deal is as I clean them after every use and make sure to lubricate during and after using them. I have never body clipped with them, so it's not like the blades have had a ton of use.

It's not the clippers getting hot - it's the blades. Lubing them is good but you need to sharpen them quite a bit as well.
