Hair stuck between blades...repeatedly

I have a constant problem with hair getting stuck between the blades with this clipper. I open it up, clean the blades thoroughly, then put the blade back in place. It will then cut great for about 6 inches or so, then more hair gets stuck in the blades...so I'm cleaning the thing every 10 seconds. I've tried adjusting the tension screws, got a new latch to make sure the blades are tight against the body, oiling etc..
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I was shaving my dog using oster ultra cordless clipper, and suddenly the clipper is not cutting hair instead it grabs hair. I opened it and clean out hair under blade, but unfortunately, i did not help.


With most clippers, after an amount of use they need to be cleaned then oiled. Most sets come with some amount of oil for your clippers. Otherwise you can purchase it separately. This should fix the problem.

My clippers are frozen. They don't vibrate but the motor turns on.


Hi, How long have you been using the clippers? In my experience they can get clogged with hair quite quickly depending on the animal. I'd recommend removing the blade to better get at the hair stuck between the blades. Once the blade is off lubricate the appropriate parts following the guide in your operating manual. It's best to do this soon before the motor burns out. If you feel that the blades are too clogged, it's easy to buy a replacement blade for around 1/3 the price of a new clipper set.

My clippers are no longer cutting. I took it apart today and cleaned out all the hair but I still can't get it to cut. I felt it and it's very sharp it's just not cutting any hair. I have been told it...


there is probably hair stuck between the cutters
remove the cutters from the clipper and you can push the top blade out from under the spring retainer making sure you keep the small plastic runner strip
clean the surfaces and using a flat bladed screw drive insert the blade under the spring and twist slightly to allow the top blade to slide back in
while it feels sharp , it is the sides of the cutter fingers that cut the hair ( like miniature guillotines) and those edges are easily worn off

Oster Golden A5 Clippers will not cut


These kinds of clippers are fussy about oiling and dirt. It is essential that the blades be spotless and well oiled FREQUENTLY. Oil after every haircut always. Also, if there is not enough tension on the blades, the hair will slip between the blade and blade guard, getting caught and damaging the blades. Blades should be screwed on tight. Also, it may be time to replace the blade if nothing else helps. These blades do not last very long in my experience especially if not carefully cleaned and oiled.
