If the hinge will pull up with your finger nails then it will need replacing. The hinge should be tight enough to hold the blade onto the clipper. Some models are fitted with a 'Latch' which should be pushed to release the blade if this is fitted and the release does not need to be pushed then a new latch needs to be fitted.

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

SOURCE: Oster 76 overheating

The most likely cause of the condition you describe is that the motor is trying to run with too little current reaching it. ( Note: Voltage is the pressure pushing the electricity down the wires. Current is the amount of electricity being pushed. An easy analogy would be gallons-per-minute of flow through a garden hose. That flow is the current that is being delivered. )
If there is a built-up coating of black residue/gunk on the commutator ( the part the brushes ride against inside ), you're probably not getting the full amount of current flow needed to run the motor. Any motor will run slow, overheat, and eventually burn out if operated on current flow that is less than that required by the unit. Too small a cord, too long an extension, dirty contacts, any of these things can restrict current flow.
Pull the brushes out and look down inside. If the armature is covered in black residue, the only fix is to clean, polish, and undercut the armature, or simply replace it.
These are well-built machines, and designed to be servicable. That said, I must caution you not to attempt this repair/replacement if you have no experience in this area. It's all too easy to end up with a unit that doesn't work at all. Even worse, a unit that goes POOF and generates a cloud of acrid smoke !
Time to turn to your local repairman. It isn't a difficult or especially time-consuming job, and should be quite affordable.

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.

Check your Hinge. if you can open your Hinge with your finger and it opens easy, this mean your hinge is worn out. The Hinge should be very hard to open. This is what keep your blade in place while cutting. Also check the Hinge screws are tight. e hope this was helpful. Manny's Sharpening.com

make sure the blade clicks into place and cannot be removed without depressing the release latch, secondly check the two screws are tight either side of the hinge assembly, faults in either can cause this fault.

Oster A-5 Golden clipper blade is not flush against the clipper so wont clip you have to hold the blade down tight so it will clip.


see if the blade and hinge have moved away from the body of the clipper, the two screws either side of the hinge assembly may need tightening, or the main body may need replacing,
If its just one blade then there must be a problem with that blade.

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.

The shaving blades came loose and fell off my sunbeam shaver, how do i put them back on?


Make sure the clippers are running.
Make sure the hinge (the bit you put the blade on) is open, if it is not, prize it open with a flat head screwdriver.
With the hinge open and facing you, slide the blade on the hinge with the blade number/size facing you. Snap the hinge shut.

Oster 76 clippers turn off while cutting


The two so called buttons are not buttons. They are the screw caps that hold the carbon brushes in place. You will have to replace them. You can buy a new set a your local Sally's beauty supply store.
Be careful that you put them in the correct way. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE CORD BEFORE STARTING!
