Question about Oster 76974-160 Hair Trimmer

Open Question

Oster Pro Cordless Clippers

I have a dual charging station for Oster Pro Cordless Horse clippers & when batteries are placed on charger, the charging lights normally show orange, meaning they are charging, & once fully charged the lights go to green, however, now both lights just blink orange & batteries do not charge. Does this mean the batteries need replacing or is something wrong with the charger?

Thanks--James Jones

There can also be a problem with the switch, which can be gotten to by unscrewing the the 2 screws at the end of the clipper . . .you must then test (with the thing unplugged!!!!!!!!!) to see if the switch wires are good or if the switch is broken by flipping the switch and or the toggle and then checking the wires with an ohm meter (easily available from radio shack or ?? for under 10 bucks or any kid who's into electronics. If the switch is good, when its turned on resistance goes to 0, if bad th switch shoes infinite resistance on or off . . .

If it hums and the motor is turning, but the blades don't move you need to replace the gear and or lever . . see this diagram

The stationary blades are held on by a couple of screws. Loosening these screws will allow some lateral movement of the blades. Adjust the blades till the proper alignment is restored. Just like scissors, there must be gaps between the moving and stationary blades at one point, then the moving blades close the gaps which cut the hair.

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: Bought Oster Golden A5 clippers new but did not

There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.
Terms regarding these devices are all too often assumed as understood. For most purposes, these are what you have to know for the A5 Oster. The cover plate is the part with two screws that has the name and other info on it. If you remove the two screws and the plate, you will see a nylon part that moves the blade back and forth--that is the lever. The other end of the lever, with a hole in it, is connected to a metal part called the link. Both parts are easily removed by simply pulling them upward from the device. The bakelite gear is the part that the link sits on (the larger hole in the link). It too can be simply pulled up off the metal shaft that it rides upon (careful not to lose the washer under it). That gear is turned by the armature gear of the motor (which is where things get much too involved to cover here, but from that point on the device very rarely has problems). Incidentally, the lever, the link, and the gear can all quite simply be replaced. They are available quite inexpensively at Amazon under Oster A5 Clipper parts (note that the one speed and the two speed take different bakelite gears, but the lever and the link are the same). If you were to replace parts such as these or simply lubricate them, remember that a good white lithium grease is recommended in light application for the gear and the shafts (lever and gear shafts and armature gear). Also, the gear shaft has a hole down its middle (and two small holes that lead to the outside of the shaft. The shaft should be filled with grease so that grease can get through those small holes to lubicate the inside of the bakelite bearing. The two pads (one on each side of the lever) should be oiled. The simple way to tell if you need to replace parts is to grip the blade end of the lever while all parts are in place and try to move it back and forth, as though it were running the blade. If there is any more than the slightest movement, replace the lever (replace that anyway if the part that contacts the blade is rounded off) link and gear.
Good luck.

I was shaving my dog using oster ultra cordless clipper, and suddenly the clipper is not cutting hair instead it grabs hair. I opened it and clean out hair under blade, but unfortunately, i did not help.


With most clippers, after an amount of use they need to be cleaned then oiled. Most sets come with some amount of oil for your clippers. Otherwise you can purchase it separately. This should fix the problem.

70ca16d.jpg Hope this helps, this is a tongue guide, you hopefully recognise it on your blade. If they are not paralell, then adjust them with pliers, both need to be perfectly vertical. When you put it on the clippers push the latch in as you close the hinge.
If it still wobbles then the next fe wthings need checking
1. The hinge screws on the clipper are tight, located either side of the hinge on the clipper.
2. The drive lever may be worn, thats the maroon peice of plastic sticking up at the top of the clippers, it moves from side to side when clippers are running.
3. If all seems fine up to now, your clipper should be fixed under warranty as it will involve changing parts covered by the warranty.

How old is your clipper, Oster clippers need to be adjusted for more power and speed, also what clipper blade are you using to cut the horse hair and how long is the horse hair, Also the blade may not be sharp, some new blade are sharp maybe defective.

My forfex clippers won't hold a charge


How old are the clippers? Babyliss have a one year warranty on all their electrical goods. It sounds as though you may need a new battery. Have you checked the charger itself to make sure it is working properly?

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.
