Question about Conair 5200

Conair Champion Hair clipper

I can't find my instruction manual, and my clippers do not seem to be giving me an even cut. Is there a way to adjust it? Or is it in need of oil? How often should it be oiled? and How do I oil it? My lube oil that came with the set is empty. What kind of oil can I use?

Oster fast feeds snagging clients. how do I remedy the problem?

Hello, Albert -

Clarification: You are asking about an Oster brand Fast-Feed hair clipper. Apparently when you use it on hair cutting clients, the clipper "clips" their skin.

If I am correct in my guess, then . . .

I have found some reviews of the hair clippers which mention the clipper guard combs, which come with the clippers , which may cause problems.

These are links to 2 reviews:

The second review includes a recommendation to purchase other clipper guards to use instead of those which come with the hair clipper.

Some of the "clipping" problems may be user error (you), too. You may wish to find and watch some instructive videos. To find such videos, use your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo Search, etc.) and the following search phrase, using quotation marks as shown:
"Oster fast feed" demonstration video

Best wishes.

It could be the switch is shorting out or the cord is. If it doesn't cut off when you move the cord it is prob the switch.

How do I reduce my clipper's rattling noise and still be able to cut properly?

The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers.
