Question about Computers & Internet
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.

Try checking your carbon brushes to see if they need replaced. These are accessed through the two slotted caps on each side of the body. If they are worn down replacements can be inexpensively purchased. Good contact is required for the motor to rotate.
