The drive arm is probably not aligned with the corresponding opening in the balde. You have to close the blade against the clipper body with the clipper turned on. This should take care of your problem.

Oster A5 clippers work briefly then "pull" hair


Lever arm worn, blade blunt, or loss of movement inside the gearbox. It is possible to have a 'bad' sharpen.

I have an Oster Golden A5 2 Speed animal clipper and don't know how to change the blades. I live in Australia so can't go to Oster. How do I do it please and is there a comprehensive Oster Manual? Thanks,...


hi, if you look at the blade while its attatched to your clipper, at the back edge of the blade there is a black metal peice called a Latch push this towards the blade and pull the front edge away from the clipper it will hinge away then you can pull it straight off.
As for an instruction manual if you have no luck contact us and we can send one to you.

Someone gave me an Oster A5 single clipper to sheer out goats, we are new to this. what size blade do we need and is there one or two blades on this clipper


Can't help you with the blade you will need to shear goats, but I can tell you that there are many blades for the A5, as well as many combs that fit over the blade to let you adjust for the length of coat you want to leave. Amazon lists many blades and combs under Oster A5 Clipper Blades. They probably have brief descriptions of what each blade is best used for, as well as customer comments regarding their effectiveness. There are a number of other places that sell blades if you look for them with Google. Also eBay, but there you probably won't get a description of what blade is good for what.
Good luck.

Oster A5 clippers are slow and vibrating noisily even without a blade attache. Any ideas what could be wrong with them please as I have a dog only half clipped at the moment. Thanks


If the nylon lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, or only moving sometimes, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever (the nylon part that moves the blade) Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear. Amazon carries both single speed and 2 speed gears under Oster A5 clipper parts. All these parts should have a light coat, where they move, of lithium grease, and the two pads (one on each side of the lever) should be oiled. You might also check the condition of your brushes (under the caps on each side of the clipper. Take cap off, remove cover from brush, remove spring and brush to see how worn they are).
Good luck.

My A5 clipper is not clipping at all.


If the blade mover is going when you turn the clipper on than all you need to do is take the blades apart and clean them well with a Oster spray and then oil them. I would recommend cool lube.

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.

Blades do not function


If the power lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever. Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear.

Good luck.
