Manufacturer's Notice

To Whom it May Concern, As your supplier of the Wahl 2-Speed Massager (4120-200, 4120-217) and/or Wahl 2-Speed Massager with Heat (4196-500, 4196-517), we are notifying you of a potential production problem that has been identified and that we are addressing immediately. The four units that are listed above were manufactured after May 2003 and could potentially have a defect. The units may develop a crack in the cord insulation where it exits out of the strain relief. This crack in the cord insulation may expose live conductors resulting in a possible electric shock and injury to the user. Therefore, Wahl Clipper Corporation is doing a voluntary product recall in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on this issue. Any inventory at your stores or distribution should be returned to Wahl for rework and replacement effective immediately. We are also requesting a list of customers who have purchased these massagers after May 2003. We plan to send the customer a letter regarding the voluntary recall, which will ask them to return their current massager to Wahl for rework.

Wahl 4196-500 2-Speed All-Body Massager with Heat.
This is the second massager that I have owned. I can honestly say that I truly love this Wahl massager. The Hi-Lo heat is just awesome and the vibration (whether Hi or Lo) is so soothing. The only drawback (which doesn't bother me) is the massager is a little bit heavy. But, as far as reliability and comfort you can't go wrong with this Wahl 4196-500!!

This product does work very good on our aching backs, neck, knees, and shoulders. My daughter likes to use it on her face and temples for headaches. The product has good speed settings and the heat option is pretty good. The massager does get warm after continual prolonged use.

My wife and me both use this product and we both feel like it is a well made product and has performed to our expectations.
The attachments are easy to change and the heat attachment is our favorite because of our joint problems.
Yes, we highly recommend this product.

i bought several higher/newer and a lot more expensive models of this wahl only to find out that they all end up shipping this same one - 4196-500, very misleading, so don't waste your time and get this one for a whole lot cheaper, it has the heat and many attachments (7 + the heat one) and two speeds. also can use to impress girls, and make your vision vibrate. good investment.

im just guessing is about around a foot long ITS GREAT. more powerful than i expected! the heat takes a min to heat up and its not that hot but its something and for 20bucks its worth every penny. it comes with all types of massaging pieces to change out for certain areas on the body LOVE THAT.

First off I am not a fan of Wahl products. I find them cheaply made. Apparently they have different grades of products. This one seems to be of better quality. I live very close to Wahl headquarters. I hope they can improve the quality of some items and compete with cheaper China made products. Our politicians have created a bad situation in the name of redistributing wealth. Taking for those that produce and give it to those that don't. It doesn't make us competitive in a gloabal economy.

My physical therapist had this exact model when I went to her for my wrist. She used this on me about 4 times and I was healed. So of course, I ran to amazon to get my own for all my body parts. I really do love it although it doesn't seem to get as hot as I'd like it to. Otherwise it feels GREAT!

I purchased this massager as I have a few previously. As other reviewers have stated, this product comes a little under-powered. Like other massagers I've purchased I made some modifications to the internal pivet point of the arm and it enhanced the strength as desired :). I place a cut piece of rubber washer from a garden hose under the vibrating arm between the two fastening screws. Adjustments can be made by lossing one screw and tightening the other till the desired effect has been obtained.
