    Does any oil go in the machine? If so where do you put it?

    Also, I took My blade off and cannot get it back on. I have tried with it running, is there any other way?

    To put blade on, have clipper running and at the back just under where the blade goes there is aclip style swich which you hold down while you put the blade on the clipper. To oil blade just add a drop of all to each end of the blade and on the teeth with the clippers going. be careful not to put too much on, just a drop here and there is all that is needed

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I have an Oster Golden A5 2 Speed animal clipper and don't know how to change the blades. I live in Australia so can't go to Oster. How do I do it please and is there a comprehensive Oster Manual? Thanks,...


hi, if you look at the blade while its attatched to your clipper, at the back edge of the blade there is a black metal peice called a Latch push this towards the blade and pull the front edge away from the clipper it will hinge away then you can pull it straight off.
As for an instruction manual if you have no luck contact us and we can send one to you.

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.

Blade change problem & no info in enclosed instructions


Hi A5 blades are not made to be unscrewed. They are snap on blades. You can call 800-830-3678 which is Oster Direct consumer service. They will walk you though the process or you can send them back to Oster and they will put them back together and realign them for you. Hope that helps.

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.
