8595 Pop-Up Trimmer Broken

My 8595 pop-up trimmer is broken, one of the thin plastic prongs on the side is broken and it disengages from the slide shaving mode controller. Can I buy the part and replace it myself or must it be serviced? I live in zip code 94588, where's the nearest repair outlet/shop if I need to take it in?

Replacing the Braun 8000 Series Activator Motor Drive Unit. The Motor Drive Unit is a one piece unit containing the motor and shaver head. Cost $33.99 at http://shaveroutlet.com/.

To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.

Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.

The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.

There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.

This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.

Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.

This is the best solution I've found. (Found it thanks to another forum). Its the whole casing which includes the trimmer. Frankly, I'm not going to argue with the price.

The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom (opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit of prying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have that off, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4 screws opening up the interior.

Be careful at this point because there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take a picture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was when you opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (mine had 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it with the new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

Philips salon pro ceramic AC hair dryer electric cable is damaged


I had to disassemble the PHILIPS SalonPro Ceramic HP4890 to fix the damaged power cord. With no previous experices in this models of hairdryers, it was hard to find the way to take out (slide) the main plastic cover. I had to force the front plastic ring to come up and free the main cover; the main covers slides and then the side covers can be separated (triangular recess screws) to access to the interior of hairdryer. I forced the front ring with the tip of a screwdriver so the piece was damage, but not broken, later I came up with the idea of using a nylon thread (or fishing line) to surround the ring and pull to avoid the damage. No doubt that these hairdryers are not made to be disassembled but not impossible. Hope I help.
