Oster Golden A5 Clippers

I just bought these clippers to clip my horse. They worked fine the first day. After using them, I brushed the excess hair off, cooled them off, and put them back in the case. Several days later, I pulled them out, put a little oil on the blades and tried to use them. They are not cutting at all.HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try running the blade for a bit keep lubricating in between the blades its important to oil your blades during and after use to avoid rust build up on the cutting surfaces. Also just make sure the blade is engaging onto the clippers ok.

I have oster 6550 series a clippers, i installed new blades but they hardly clip any hair, when I loosen the tension the blades "move quicker" but vibrate with a loud noise


the tension should be pre set from the factory, if its more than one blade your having problems with then its likely there is a problem with the clippers.

hi, on some ocassions when the clippers get hot the metal gear shaft moves meaning the movement of the clipper is limited, you can remove they gears in the gearbox when its hot and see if there is any side to side movement.

How old is your clipper, Oster clippers need to be adjusted for more power and speed, also what clipper blade are you using to cut the horse hair and how long is the horse hair, Also the blade may not be sharp, some new blade are sharp maybe defective.

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.

Newbie Clipper needing advice


This is from the Oster book:
Changing Blades
To Remove: IMPORTANT- stop motor; push latch with thumb while lifting blade away from clipper and slide off tongue.
To Replace: turn motor on; insert blade on tongue fully and then snap blade into place.

Note: if the hinge is flush against clipper, lift it up with a screwdriver.




From me - Never take your blades apart to clean them. You can slide them one side to the other to get the hair out. (One little hair, can stop them from cutting.) You need to buy a can of clipper blade cool from oster or andis both are good, and it really helps to lubricate the blade and keep them cool while clipping. If you live near a dog groomer, petsmart or something of the like. Ask them to show you how to remove the blade and I know they will be happy to show you. I tried to submit an image from the book, but I don't know if it will get here or not.

Oster Golden A5 Clippers will not cut


These kinds of clippers are fussy about oiling and dirt. It is essential that the blades be spotless and well oiled FREQUENTLY. Oil after every haircut always. Also, if there is not enough tension on the blades, the hair will slip between the blade and blade guard, getting caught and damaging the blades. Blades should be screwed on tight. Also, it may be time to replace the blade if nothing else helps. These blades do not last very long in my experience especially if not carefully cleaned and oiled.

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.
