Remove the presser foot and needle. Press the feed-dog drop button on the right-hand end of the machine, so that the feed-dogs drop below the needle plate. Press the back right-hand-side of the needle plate firmly and the front left side should pop up. You can then lift the plate out to clean underneath etc. When replacing, put the hole in the plate over the locating lug at the front-right corner and make sure the right-hand-side of the plate is down first, before pressing the left-hand side down into the grey surround. Be careful not to use excess force if it wont go, otherwise you could break the retaining spring. When done, dont forget to press the feed-dog drop button again and rotate the handwheel once, so that the feed-dogs come back up again.'
Please follow the instructions below carefully to change the bulbs in the licence plate of your cad deville; 1.All you have to do is put a flat blade screw driver on the right side of the bulb housing and gently push to the left. This will release the catch holding it in and it will drop out and down on the end of its wiring connector.
2.1/4 turn the bulb and remove. Replace the bulb and just put the housing back into the opening left side first, then just push up on the right side till you hear a click. Takes about 1 min per light. Works for all Deville types from 99-08
Yes, I had exactly the same problem, the lower blades can actually move a little on the shaft, if the helicopter takes a big knock then they move up so much that the shaft drops so that the gears no longer engage.
To fix it just squeeze the lower blades towards the gear, I did this by putting a finger on each side of the lower blade next to the shaft and my thumbs against the lower gear so you are squeezing along the shaft. The lower blade will then move down, however if it moves too much it will jam against the main body of the helicopter so you will need to pull it back appart a little so the bottom blades move freely.
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 Amazonunder 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.
It is a fiddle but drop the l/h side of the subframe down, pull the shafts, jack the engine a bit and seperate the box and you can just unbolt the cover plate, slide it back and lift out the centre plate, then the cover plate comes out, you have to align the new ones by feeling the alignment in the 3 gaps round the edge, fiddly but save a heap of time
Hi, If you look at the plate on the top it has what looks like a little button and printing that says "open" with an arrow pointing to the left and one pointing to the right that says "close". The little button is actually a tab that you can carefully remove by using a butter knife and sticking it in above the tab where the plate meets the top. The tab is about 1/4 inch long. After you remove the tab carefully turn the plate to the left and slowly drop it down. There is a slotted disk on a square shaft above the plate that may (probably) drop down with the plate. The plate holds the disk in place and is actually the bearing for that disk so be sure to slide it back on the shaft as you put the plate back. turn the plate to the right and then push the tab back into the hole. Good Luck!
If the power lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever. Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear. Amazon carries both single speed and 2 speed gears under Oster A5 clipper parts.
