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). If you don’t have a tube of oster grease, a good white lithium grease is recommended in light application for the gear and the shafts (lever and gear shafts and armature gear and teeth of bakelite gear). Also, the bakelite 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 small pads on each side of the lever (in the case) are oiled, not greased.
Oster clippers, by the way, are known for getting pretty warm. Oster blade wash will help with that, as well as oiling the blades.
Hope this helps you.

Try lubricating your blades. Grease should be applied to the gears underneath the name plate.

Classic oster outlaw clipper manual how do u clean grease the gears and oil the blades? how do I properly maintenance my clippers because they are getting real hot way to fast.


normal for clippers if the hair is long or thick
oiling is done with the clipper running
Change over from steel clipper blades to ceramic blades as they run cooler and stay sharper for longer
just place a small drop on the blades and let it work down
AS for others
make sure that the filter in the handle is clear of hair and the same for the vent under the hand
Other than that you can take out the 4 screws and put a small amout of oster grease around the wheel and drive pinion as it can get out and run dry
go to the manufacturing web page and download the pdf version manual

When should you change the grease on your Oster A5 or 76 clipper


Oster A5 or 76 clipper need to be grease at lease every 4 month so they can run quiet and cool. when changing and removing the grease, You need to remove the old grease completely, or You are doing more harm than good. By doing this on a routine base, You are saving wear and tear on your gear,lever,link and blades. and the clipper motor will run cooler.

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.
