Frequently asked questions & Trouble shooting
What lengths will the Flowbee cut my hair?
The Flowbee cuts hair lengths from 1/2" to 6" long at any 1/4" increment . Additional spacers may be purchased if you desire longer lengths of hair. You should not try to cut more than 1/2" in length at a time.
Will the Flowbee work with any vacuum?
The Flowbee works with 90% of those vacuums with a hose attachment capability. The power output needs to be 3 hp. or 8 amps. The more power your home vacuum has the more efficiently your Flowbee will operate. Also great for Central vacuums. Flowbee recommends the use of its super mini-vac.
What type of information is available to help me get started cutting hair with the Flowbee?
We offer an instructional DVD which can be purchased by going to the Parts page.
Can my children use the Flowbee?
Yes, with adult supervision.
How long will my Flowbee last?
The Flowbee is designed to give hundreds of precision cuts if properly cared for. Use only the Flowbe supplied oil. Other oils can gum up the blades and make the Flowbee run slow.
Can the blades on the Flowbee be sharpened?
No, the precision design of the cutting head does not allow for this. If your Flowbee is older than seven years old you should maybe start thinking about buying a new Flowbee.
I have an older Flowbee unit, are replacement parts still available?
You can get parts and support for your Flowbee up to ten years after purchase. If your Flowbee says Flowbee Int. or Vac-u-cut on the blade cover we no longer have parts. The spacers will work in all ages of Flowbee.
