lubrication is done, cords are checked for shorts, opens or frayed unsafe conditions. Blade drives on Andis or lever &
links on Osters are replaced. Armatures and electronic switch boards are checked. Some parts for older clipper models
are still available in limited quantity. I keep some here. Some vintage armatures
can be rewound for a high cost but if you have a sentimental attachment this might be a choice for some. Some parts for Oster
A2, model 10 and progienic clippers are available still. I have some old refurbished A2 blades if you need some. New 2018

trimmer type clippers are marginal to repair due to their lower initial cost and the labor time to service. Call and ask have
your brand and model # available so I can check if parts are available and worth the effort and cost to service. Blade sharpening
is easily done.
service and most parts are available here. I can replace your broken laube case (housing), repair a bad wire in the
cord, replace noisy bearings, install a new brush cartridge, replace a bad hinge and so on. Laube has a 5 year electrical
motor parts warranty so if you have a motor problem and the clipper is still under the warranty period send
your clipper to Laube for least costly service, if not the quickest! Laube motors are expensive complared to other
brands but a lot cheaper than a new Laube. A problem with older Laube cases cracking near the drive screw area
is common. According to Laube this is due in part to the use of Kool Lube spray getting onto the housing.
Note that Kool Lube or similar "cooling"
products should only be sprayed on the back (the part that touches the animal) part of the blade, not the
front or into the clipper or on the clipper body. These cracks can be severe enough that the entire front of
the clipper falls apart in little pieces. I have a photo of one that did that while sitting
on my work bench! Laube now only supplies Yellow replacement
me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see if I can help with your Laube problem.
When sending a clipper for repair please
put a note on it or in the box about what is wrong or what service is required. This is especially important
on intermittent problems. Let me know if is making unusual noise, was dropped, won't hold a blade, is intermittent,
or whatever the problem or service request is. If you tend to stick your clippers on a shelf when they are no longer working
correctly, take the time to write down what occurred and wrap a note around the clipper. This will make my job much easier
and get you the correct service.
* Conair pet grooming clippers are
made in China. They are clones of Oster A5's and Andis AG/AGC style clippers. The Oster
clones often have a problem with the gear and lever steel shafts becoming loose. Once that happens the clipper will no longer
run, or will run slow. The repair is to replace the case, I replace with an Oster case as this is a much more reliable fix.
If the shaft go bad during the warranty period send it to your warranty service center. Keep your paperwork and get a replacement.
Note that the only parts supplier that I know of that carried Conair grooming clipper parts no longer carries Conair parts.
In the future buy other brands - sometimes you get what you pay for!
The newer Oster's A5's have had a problem
with the hinge screws loosening. The fix is to apply lock-tite thread sealant (A.K.A. thread locker) to the cleaned threads.
This will help keep them from loosening. The screw holes goes through into the rear housing where there's a lot of lubricants.
As the screw threads get oil/grease from the inside opening they can loosen from the vibration of running. Tighten the screws
firmly but don't over tighten. I can perform the service here for you for a few dollars if you need. If the hinge screw
brass inserts pull out you may have to have the case replaced with a new one. I can install new inserts that thread in instead
of pressed like Oster uses that will not pull out. The Oster A6 clipper has been out for a while now. Some replacment parts
are available here for them.
