F.A.Q  - Oster A6 Clipper

All Clippers

The way to check and see if it is a blade or clipper problem is to take the blade set of the clipper.  If the clipper runs fine then it is a blade problem.  If the clipper runs sluggish then it is a clipper problem.  If a clipper problem it needs to be sent away for a service.  If a blade problem try placing a few drops of oil, as the blade could be ceased.  Try and run blade again, if still a problem then blade needs to be sent away for sharpening.
Shear Magic Battery Trimmer
Make sure all blades are oiled once storing blades away.  If not oiled this causes blades to cease
Also with the Shear Magic battery trimmer, we recommended high quality batteries to be used – such as Duracel, Energiser, lithium batteries or rechargeable batteries
The SM103 – Cordless Pet Clipper has 3 areas that should be checked when a problem occurs. 
1.       Adaptor – make sure plugged in a connected to the clipper, red light should appear.  If it does then its ok. 
2.       Turn machine on, if blade does not work remove blade – if motor runs fine, then blade problem
3.       If all runs ok plugged in, and problem occurs while using as cordless, this means that problem with internal battery, which needs to be sent away to a authorized service agent.
