Question about Oster 76974-160 Hair Trimmer

Oster A5 single speed clipper not cutting

We have had our clipper for 10 years and just love it. We had it serviced recently because it sounded a little rough, at the same time we had the blade sharpened. Since we got it back the motor sounds like it is running fine but it does not cut the hair anymore. When you run it through the dog's hair it just pulls it more than cutting it. Is it possible that the blade had been sharpened too many times and is now too short to cut?

Not usually we will not sharpen blades that are worn out as we cannot charge for something that does not cut!
make sure your blade is connecting with the drive of your clipper they might need an extra push depending if the blade has been adjusted.

Lever arm worn, blade blunt, or loss of movement inside the gearbox. It is possible to have a 'bad' sharpen.

My oster A5 2 speed will cut for short time and than won't go though my dogs fur. It's like the blade lifts up and is not tight on the clippers. I have had these clippers for three years and have had no...


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 Golden A5 Clippers will not cut


If the clippers are new, it is not likely that the problem is internal. Sometimes, when the blade is put on the clipper, it needs an extra little push to clip firmly behind the blade catch (you can hear a little click). Try that.

My A5 clipper is not clipping at all.


If the blade mover is going when you turn the clipper on than all you need to do is take the blades apart and clean them well with a Oster spray and then oil them. I would recommend cool lube.

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.
