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

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!!!!!!!

    What is image search mode?

    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",

How do I change the blade?


There is a small button at the bottom edge of the blade, push it in and at the same time push the blade teeth away from the clipper. The blade will hinge away from the clipper, you then lift the blade up off the tongue. When fitting another blade pop it onto the tongue, turn the clipper on and snap the blade shut.

Is there a tool to get the Motor housing back into the A5 clipper case.


No special tool you need to make sure you have removed the gear wheel in the gearbox, locate the armature inside the motor frame first then slide the motor housing complete with the armature into the body of the clipper sometimes you may need to twist a little to get it in. I have put a link below so you can see the parts I have mentioned.

The brand new gear lever on my oster a5 isnt moving the clipper blade


make sure the blade is clicked into place fully, secondly check to see if the blade is sitting further away from the clipper than usual, it could also be a stripped gear inside the clipper does the lever move when the blade is engaged?

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.

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.

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.
