I just replaced a faulty switch to my Oster hair clippers Golden 5 single speed. I forgot how to reattach the switch and power cord wiring. Whoops?

I had the same problem with an Oster 76. I disassembled the unit and replaced the switch but my "repair" caused the house fuse to blow.
If you're a "once in a while user" such as myself, you may find my eventual solution useful: I screwed the terminal ends of the cord directly into the main body of the clipper. This made the on/off switch the power cord itself.

    P.S. maybe someone can answer the question: Does it matter if black/white is attached to the left/right terminal? I reassembled the unit based on an educated guess and it seems to be working fine. Perhaps I just got lucky?

I took off the end cap of my single speed A5 to clean out the dog hair and now they will not run. Before I took the end cap of and cleaned out the hair, the clippers would run intermitenly. Sometimes...


Chances are if you could wiggle the cord and get your clippers to start again there is a short in your power cord. However there is a list of other things to check:
  1. Within the cap are two brass tabs which sit across from conjugate tabs within the main housing. These are designed to contact each other when the cap is secured. If there is any question whether they are in contact, you can exaggerate the bend slightly to ensure that they are.
  2. Check your carbon brushes to make sure they are not worn down. The brushes are directional so make sure the concave surface direction matches that of the housing and thus the armature contained within.
  3. Lastly, check your toggle switch. Gently, tug on each end of the switch's wires to make sure they are secured to both the housing and the switch. These wires can become broken and appear to be attached to the switch when they are not. The number one cause is a loose or missing switch nut, especially since Oster has switched from metal to plastic on the nut.
Hope this helps.

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.

Can get it right


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.

Looking for switch wiring diagram for Oster Golden A5 two speed clippers..Replaceing switch and unsure of connections..


You must put the new one in exactly as the old one came out. Sorry, no diagrams unless you are an authorized dealer. Most of our repairs are common sense. No books. My husband just replaced mine today. Plus one clipper wasn't the switch as I thought, but was a broken wire in the cord near the clipper that kept shorting.

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.
