This Oster hair clipper is very popular for stylists and barbers. This Classic 76 clipper is known as a very reliable and professional clipper for many years.

Note: This is not a professional classic 76 repair person. It is an amateur video demonstrating how to take apart a Classic 76 clipper.

A friend had several non-working classic 76 clippers. My plan was to see if I could get at least one of them working by swapping the parts from the bad clippers. In this case, most of the clippers needed only a new carbon brush/springs, and a good cleaning/regreasing. I had a long relationship with an beauty store ( http://www.texasbeautysupplies.com ), so bought the parts that I needed from them. They have been always so helpful.

In this case, I needed:
For parts: Oster PART Classic 76 CARBON BRUSH and BRUSH SPRING #62106, AND, Oster Gear Lube - 1.25oz #76300-105
For tools: Phillips screwdriver, Flat screwdriver, and retainer ring pliers. (flashlight, qtips, and paper towels are usefull too)

This an amateur video demonstrating the steps to disassemble an Oster 76, in order to help others that may also be needing to do the same thing. It is recommended to take it to a professional oster service center, but, I understand that there are cases that option is not available.

My opinion...
Between each customer: use Oster Spray Disinfectant Citrus Fragrance #40878 to clean the blade.
At least once a week: spray your clipper with Oster Kool Lube 3 Clipper Blade Coolant Lubricant Cleaner. Oster also has other aerosal sprays to disinfectant and clean the blades.
About every 6 months, clean out the old hair and lube under the cover, and apply new Oster Gear Lube - 1.25oz #76300-105.
With proper maintenance, your clipper will not overheat and continue to for many years.
