Question about Oster Golden A5 1-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-010

My A5 clipper is not clipping at all.

My Oster A5 clipper is 30 years old and usually performs well on our horses and dogs. Currently the motor runs but the clipper does not clip anything. The motor runs but even my new blades are not clipping. What could it be?

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.

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.

Good luck.

Does someone know which # blade to use with the Oster, universal comb set for use with the Oster A5 turbo clipper?


Hi, as far as I know you're suppose to use a size 10 or 30 blade with any combs. I prefer to buy a longer blade like a size 4 rather than using the combs as I find the coat finish not great with the combs.

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.

make sure the blade clicks into place and cannot be removed without depressing the release latch, secondly check the two screws are tight either side of the hinge assembly, faults in either can cause this fault.

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.

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 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.
