Question about Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-140

1 Answer

Changing the blade on The Turbo A5 Pet clippers

I just got my new clippers and I am trying to put the blade on.  The instructions say to turn the motor on and insert blade on tongue fully then snap blade into place.  I don't know what the "tongue" is, and I can't get the blade to snap in place, and with the motor running I'm afraid I'm going to break it.

    I'm looking at the box and it says Oster Turbo A5 Two Speed and the number at the top is 78005-314.  On the clipper itself there is a tiny number PN111038-030 and then another number 5-314B

    WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don't understand what you told me to do!  Before I came on this web site I had "Googled" everything on a Oster clipper and it never showed a "Tongue" or how to replace the blade.  I found every kind of replacement part to order, but not a picture of the "tongue" on the clipper.  Help!!!!!!!

    I think I know what the "tongue is", but I am  "shredding" it up trying to put the blade on it with the motor running, and I still can't get the blade to "snap into place",

    Try to snap without the motor running, that should be safe as u will not only break ur clip, also u will be safe from getting cuts on ur finger..!!!

How do you put on a blade when you took it off?


There is a picture of an oster clipper in the picture so I assume you are talking about an A5 style blade/clipper. Hold the clipper with the hinge facing you, if the hinge is open, then turn the blade so the blade number is facing up and slide it onto the open hinge, start the clipper and push the blade down to shut it. If the hinge is not open, prize it open with a flat head screwdriver. www.sheaeaseltd.com

Oster A5 clippers blades stop moving when put into the horses hair. checked without the blades, everything moves fine. Put new blades on, cleaned the silicone off with blade washed and have lubricated with...


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.

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.

Blade installation


i had the same problem and i fixed mine ( it is not broken) ... the tongue is the thing that is silver and has grooves that face upward, the tongue should be up compared to pressed against the shave, take a small screw driver or a kitchen knife and get under the tongue and lift it up, once this is done you need to slide it on the blades and snap it down, i found that i did not need to have the clippers on to put it back on.... at first i got confused in thinking that the tongue was the red thing at the top, and in actuality this is the thing that moves the blades to clip.... i hope this helps, once you get the tongue up the blades are on in 10 seconds...
