Re: oster 76

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

Carbons are called brushes in the US,
a great pictorial for the a5 which is almost exactly the same machine as the 76 is available here:

Re: oster 76

When the carbons wear down you need to replace them and they are on the side of the clipper. you need to unscrew the side and the carbons look like little charcoal sticks.

Oster Blade 918-306 Size Texturing Fits Oster Classic 76 Clipper, Power Pro, Power-teq And Star-te: Oster class 76 clippers....had them for a week and...

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.

The metal blade fell off my O classic 76 shaver, how can i put it back on? it is the metal changing part

The part that holds the blades on came loose on my Classic 76 clipper. It turns out that the two holes for the inserts are too big. I fixed the problem by removing the inserts from the clipper body (easy since that is the problem), cleaned the inserts and holes in the clipper body and super glued the inserts back into the holes. Be careful not to use too much glue! It only takes a little.

Simple question: Are the Oster 76 2-speed, the Oster Crewmaster 2-speed, and the Oster A5 2-speed all the same clipper with different detachable blades?

well the 76 and the golden a5 are almost the same the name plates are different and the 76 uses a toggle switch but the a5 uses a rocker switch. not sure about the crewmaster sorry.

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.

Oster Golden A5 keep turning themselves off whilst I'm clipping

Ok turn your clipper on and hold it still in one hand whilst with the other hold the cable near the end of the clipper and bend it, rotate and twist if your clipper cuts in and out you have a break in the cable which is tricky to fit but our web site Help section can help.
