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

1 Answer

Hi I bought Oster golden A5 clippers from ebay and I am not sure if they are fixable. I tried to use them to groom my dog and the blades wont cut the only solution was to tape the blade flush to the unit, as they are loose and the plastic tongue bar wasnt reaching far enough. I have inspected it and the latch is fine, but the plastic tongue bar thing has a tiny chip out of either side, is this the problem? The blades also seem very loose on the metal tongue.

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?

I'm sorry if this sounds academic, but regardless of whether or not the problem lies with the clipper or the blade set itself, since it is brand new, return it to the seller.

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.

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.

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.

Blade won't cut


Try replacing the Drive Lever which is located at the end of the clipper and goes from side to side, simply undo the two screws on the name plate/ gearbox cover and remove then pull the lever out. This is the most likely cause if you experiance the same problem with all blades.
