Carvex 420 cordless blade stuck in holder
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:28 PM »
Hi all.

Help needed I've got a carvex 420 cordless and I've got the blade stuck in its holdder. When I push the blade release switch forward it works as it should by turning the housing but the blade won't come out. I've wiggled it around and it's still firmly stuck.

Anyone had this??

Cycle the trigger a few times and try again.  If the blade isn't at a set position it might not eject.  I haven't had that problem but I seem to remember reading about that.

Sedge has a video that illustrates the fix for this:

Thanks for the replys.
It's not that the blade finishes in the wrong position it's that even when you slide the blade eject slider forward it rotates the holder as normal but doesn't release the blade at all. I've even had some grips on the blade too wiggle and pull it a bit but the blade is stuck in the holder.
Really annoying!!!

Had mine stuck once, it came out after turning the blade a bit further in release direction.

Thanks for replys but I've sorted it. The blade had bent right at the point it enters into the blade holder. Which has never happened to me before but finally came out which persistent wiggling with some grips on the blade.
