My Oster A-5 motor runs normally, but when I engage the blades they do not function... ie. they do not go back and forth. I have used this clipper for several years and am familiar w/ its function. I do not think I am using it wrong.

I just recieved a new Oster Golden A5 single speed from Amazon. The clippers worked fine with the no. 10 blade that was mounted on clipper. I removed the blade and now I can't get it back on or the 4f...


ok the blade latch only holds the blade into place.

the hinge assembly which the latch sits behind needs to be open, there is a silver piece with two ridges on, place a flat bladed screwdriver behind the hinge and this will lever open you can then slot the blade onto the hinge and close shut with the clipper running.

I am having trouble getting the replacement blade back on my Oster A-5. I doesn't seem to want to "click" into place? Any hints?


the clipper must be running when you try to fit a blade, if its all pf your blades your having trouble with then the problem is with your clippers, its possible the black latch which you need to depress to release a blade is bocken, loock at the end and make sure there is a hook which catches the blade, look at the picture.

Oster A-5 Golden clipper blade is not flush against the clipper so wont clip you have to hold the blade down tight so it will clip.


see if the blade and hinge have moved away from the body of the clipper, the two screws either side of the hinge assembly may need tightening, or the main body may need replacing,
If its just one blade then there must be a problem with that blade.

Using T-84 Andis blade for horses and cutting


Check the two screws either side of the hinge assembly make sure they are tight, the problem appears to be with the clipper if all blades do the same.

How to put differnt blade on oster a-5 clipper


There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.

My A5 clipper is not clipping at all.


If the blade mover is going when you turn the clipper on than all you need to do is take the blades apart and clean them well with a Oster spray and then oil them. I would recommend cool lube.

Blades do not function


If the power lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever. Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear. Amazon carries both single speed and 2 speed gears under Oster A5 clipper parts.
Good luck.
