Just a few drops of light oil directly on the blades themselves. This should make a world of difference. good luck 3 in 1 oil will work sewing machine oil or somthing similar. I have also used some fancy spray lubes in the past with good results.

I have not used my Oster Golden A5 dog clippers in a few years and the blades look rusty. How can I clean them? Also, where do you put the lubricating grease and where the oil?


ok rush can be removed with wire wool or a wire brush and will be prevented by the application of oil.
Grease should be inserted into the gearbox which is located under the name plate, for clipper oil have a look at the page.

Motor burnt out on oster A5 clippers. Are replacement motors available and if so how much are they please?


It sounds like you know pretty well what you're doing and mainly just need parts then. I suggest clipperparts.com. They are the kings of clipper parts and very knowledgeable if you need a little extra help

Where do you grease and oil clippers at?


The cover plate is the part with two screws that has the name and other info on it. If you remove the two screws and the plate, you will see a nylon part that moves the blade back and forth--that is the lever. The other end of the lever, with a hole in it, is connected to a metal part called the link. Both parts are easily removed by simply pulling them upward from the device (if they are worn, they should be replaced. They, and the Bakelite gear, are available from various dealers through Amazon under Oster Parts). The bakelite gear is the part that the link sits on (the larger hole in the link). It too can be simply pulled up off the metal shaft that it rides upon (careful not to lose the washer under it). Check it for worn or missing teeth.
If you don’t have a tube of oster grease, a good white lithium grease is recommended in light application for the gear and the shafts (lever and gear shafts and armature gear). Also, the gear shaft has a hole down its middle (and two small holes that lead to the outside of the shaft. The shaft should be filled with grease so that grease can get through those small holes to lubicate the inside of the bakelite bearing. The small pads on each side of the lever (in the case) are oiled, not greased.
The bearings for the Oster are sleeve bearings that require oil (the one closest to the blade is served by the oil port; the little round chrome looking thing with the spring loaded ball in it). The other end is more difficult and would require disassembly, at which time it probably should be replaced.
Oster clippers, by the way, are known for getting pretty warm. Oster blade wash will help with that, as well as oiling the blades.
Hope this helps you.

How to replace adjustable lever on oster clippers

Bought Oster Golden A5 clippers new but did not


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.
Terms regarding these devices are all too often assumed as understood. For most purposes, these are what you have to know for the A5 Oster. The cover plate is the part with two screws that has the name and other info on it. If you remove the two screws and the plate, you will see a nylon part that moves the blade back and forth--that is the lever. The other end of the lever, with a hole in it, is connected to a metal part called the link. Both parts are easily removed by simply pulling them upward from the device. The bakelite gear is the part that the link sits on (the larger hole in the link). It too can be simply pulled up off the metal shaft that it rides upon (careful not to lose the washer under it). That gear is turned by the armature gear of the motor (which is where things get much too involved to cover here, but from that point on the device very rarely has problems). Incidentally, the lever, the link, and the gear can all quite simply be replaced. They are available quite inexpensively at Amazon under Oster A5 Clipper parts (note that the one speed and the two speed take different bakelite gears, but the lever and the link are the same). If you were to replace parts such as these or simply lubricate them, remember that a good white lithium grease is recommended in light application for the gear and the shafts (lever and gear shafts and armature gear). Also, the gear shaft has a hole down its middle (and two small holes that lead to the outside of the shaft. The shaft should be filled with grease so that grease can get through those small holes to lubicate the inside of the bakelite bearing. The two pads (one on each side of the lever) should be oiled. The simple way to tell if you need to replace parts is to grip the blade end of the lever while all parts are in place and try to move it back and forth, as though it were running the blade. If there is any more than the slightest movement, replace the lever (replace that anyway if the part that contacts the blade is rounded off) link and gear.
Good luck.

OSter Titan hair clippers


Oster titan blades. I have had mine for 5 years.
Oil one is a little ball on the side of clippers push in with oil tip. Make sure your clippers are running for this. You also have to grease them once in awhile with clipper grease. You should have a front panel that has screws. open and grease put case back on. for cord you can try an oscar fix place or try and see if the company will replace if you have not had them long. hope this helps.
