The wires broke on the switch, I have resoldered them but am not sure now where they go?? Any help would be appreciated.


before you rewire your clipper I will put a video together for you, if you rewire your clipper wrong the clipper will short out and burn the clipper. please send email to ask@mannyssharpening.com for video.

I took off the end cap of my single speed A5 to clean out the dog hair and now they will not run. Before I took the end cap of and cleaned out the hair, the clippers would run intermitenly. Sometimes...


Chances are if you could wiggle the cord and get your clippers to start again there is a short in your power cord. However there is a list of other things to check:
  1. Within the cap are two brass tabs which sit across from conjugate tabs within the main housing. These are designed to contact each other when the cap is secured. If there is any question whether they are in contact, you can exaggerate the bend slightly to ensure that they are.
  2. Check your carbon brushes to make sure they are not worn down. The brushes are directional so make sure the concave surface direction matches that of the housing and thus the armature contained within.
  3. Lastly, check your toggle switch. Gently, tug on each end of the switch's wires to make sure they are secured to both the housing and the switch. These wires can become broken and appear to be attached to the switch when they are not. The number one cause is a loose or missing switch nut, especially since Oster has switched from metal to plastic on the nut.
Hope this helps.

I just replaced a faulty switch to my Oster hair clippers Golden 5 single speed. I forgot how to reattach the switch and power cord wiring. Whoops?


I had the same problem with an Oster 76. I disassembled the unit and replaced the switch but my "repair" caused the house fuse to blow.
If you're a "once in a while user" such as myself, you may find my eventual solution useful: I screwed the terminal ends of the cord directly into the main body of the clipper. This made the on/off switch the power cord itself.

Cutting blade doesn't move


could be the spring is faulty on thie hinge assembly or the tip of the latch has brocken off not securing the blades to the clipper, either way check to see if the blade will disconnect from the clipper without depressing the latch. related clipper parts can be found at www.angliaclipperservices.com

Clippers will not cut my golden retrievers fur


have you had the blades sharpened by a professional company, you should be able to get around 25 cuts per blade if correctly sharpened. If you have what about the clippers try replacing the Lever which is located at the drive end and goes from side to side.

Runs if tipped to the right. Not if tipped to the left


check the electrical cord at the clipper connection by bending the electrical cord at clipper end with the clipper on if the clipper stops the electrical cord is broken in side.if this will dose not locate the problem, the next possible problem will be the coil inside the clipper the coil has a broken field winding wire. Have a Wahl clipper repair shop repair the problem.

Run but will not cut


Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.

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.
