Question about Oster 76076-010 Hair Trimmer

1 Answer

Help I bought this Oster animal clipper unit used and wonder how old it is and wonder (even though it sounds loud) the blades don't seem to do any cutting. They marked A2 make in Milwaukee, U.S.A. Their history doesn't matter so much; I just want to trim my horses'manes and trim my dogs. There are a bunch of blades and everything looks very nice. The cap on the back of the trimmer is missing; so, the original owner 'duct-taped' it all together. It runs well and sounds powerful. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong. I oil the blades while they are running but when I try to cut my dog's hair nothing happens. Once or twice I was able to trim a lot of fur (like one or two swipes). I need to do the whole dog and a bit of the horses. Thanks. I'm about to buy another expensive unit and would rather fix this one.

The blades could be dull, dirty, or too loose; or an internal part might need to be replaced.

Difficulty shaving Spanish Water Dog


The biggest issue with clipping animals (except sheep which use completely different clippers) is that once you have sharpened blades, you need to go slow and keep then blades oiled and cooled. The KOOL spray by oster works great and the clippers you are using are a good reliable brand and model. When clipping my cocker/schnauzer cross, I have a 1/2 inch guard on it (have to use a 30 or 40 blade with the guards) and it takes about an hour. I stop every 10 minutes or so to let them cool down, spray and oil them.

The blades seem loose and chatter. Two blade sets have gotten broken tabs. It seems as though the metal blade release isn't holding the blades down properly. If I seat a blade and then hold the release...


your blade need to be adjusted and also we need to check the hinge for spring tension, also your sockets on your blades may be worn out. e-mail askmannyssharpening@yahoo.com they can help you with this problem.

Proffesional Oster clippers model 274-69 seems to be frozen...


First, these are very sensitive to no lubrication. They should be lubricated every use to every few uses. Put a drop or two of light machine oil (sewing machine oil is about right) directly on the cutting blades. That may fix your problem. Also, watch the blades once you getit running and make sure the teeth totally pass each other or it will pull hair -- no fun! The travel of the moving blade is generally adjustable via a large plastic screw on the side of the clipper.
