    I too cannot change the blade. I'm sure it is easy but it came off during the first hair cut and I am very unhappy...

What is missing in the "solutions" is the fact that you need to raise the bar with the guides on it that is part of the trimmer.  Depending upon how you removed the existing blade, the bar may be flat against the trimmer.  Take a flat head screwdriver and raise that guide.  Slide the new blade on and line up the slot at the cutting edge of the blade.  The whole problem is that the guide is likely flat which makes it impossible to install the new blade.  VERY POOR directions from Oster.

You have to have it on when you do this. You put your thumb right near Where the big "O" is and push it out. They will not cut you as long as the blades are intact and never been dropped. Then the head will swing out. You will see a area where the next side head will slide right on, then close it. You should always keep your blades well oiled also. Good Luck!

SOURCE: NEED PARTS FOR OLDER OSTER CLIPPERS

I gave it a shot and it worked!!!....

No need to bother with the universal guards. They looked bulky for the task, and after careful (visible scrutiny) decided to gamble on the "fast feed clipper" guides. Check them out here:

http://www.cache-beauty.com/oster0541.html

There are surely other people who sell them - you might shop around, but I bought from these guys. Warning, the shipping price is kinda steep. But like I said in my last post, I've tried other clippers and these are just the best. It was worth it to me.

Anyway, I am now confirming that these guards fit this old clipper brand of ours. Perfectly!

SOURCE: blade change problem & no info in enclosed instructions

Hi A5 blades are not made to be unscrewed. They are snap on blades. You can call 800-830-3678 which is Oster Direct consumer service. They will walk you though the process or you can send them back to Oster and they will put them back together and realign them for you. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: OSter Titan hair clippers

Oster titan blades. I have had mine for 5 years.
Oil one is a little ball on the side of clippers push in with oil tip. Make sure your clippers are running for this. You also have to grease them once in awhile with clipper grease. You should have a front panel that has screws. open and grease put case back on. for cord you can try an oscar fix place or try and see if the company will replace if you have not had them long. hope this helps.

My oster 76 number 2 blade pulls. i have lubed, used blade wash etc. no luck. its fairly new and no visable damage.


The teeth of the blade are not set correctly; look at the top blade and you will see where the bottom blade's teeth are supposed to match up. You can adjust the blade by unscrewing the two screws on the front of the blade and moving that bottom blade back into position.

My oster 76 clippers will kick out the two screws that hold the blade holder on


do the screws undo or do the brass inserts pull out of the body housing which the retaining screws fit into.
if the screws undo put some thread lock on the threads.
if its the brass inserts you will need to replace the mainbody.

Run but will not cut


Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.

Blade replacement


the lever on the clippers locates into the cutter of the clipper blade its only a matter of lining the lever up with the slot in the top blade which you can slide from side to side by hand. Please keep in mind wear on this plastic Drive Lever may lead to cutting problems.
