Question about Remington HC-600 Hair Trimmer

1 Answer

Plugged 4w 120v trimmer into 220v outlet with a 50-2000w 220-110v coverter - it blew fuse and doesn't work. soldering melted off wire inside

Remington model HC-100 haircutter/beard trimmer 120v 4w 60hz listed 300a --- I plugged it into a 220v outlet (I am out of the US) with a 220-110v 50-2000w converter. When I turned it on it blew a fusebox fuse, made a popping noise and stopped working. On opening the trimmer I found that the solder has been melted off of a wire inside between switch and motor.
I re-attached the wire and plugged it into the 220v outlet this time with a step down transformer (220-110v) rated (up to) 500 w. I turned it on and it did the same thing as before with the same results.
Question: what type of converter should I be using and should the trimmer work if I re-attach the wire again and use the correct converter?

Scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one

a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..

I purchased remington shaver in US now it not working properly and not getting charged. where do i have repairing centre in hyderabad


Many Remington shavers sold in the US are only for use with 120V. Voltage in your country may be 220V-240V. If you attempted to use a 120V charger in your 220V electrical outlet without a voltage converter, you have probably damaged the charger.
Chargers can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com. You will need your shavers model number to select the correct cord. And, you may need to use a voltage converter if the replacement you get is for use with 120V

Remington mb300 battery replace how


The rechargable nickel-cadmium is hard-wired and not replaceable.

Instructions for removing the battery from the user manual:
1. Make sure your groomer is unplugged from any outlets so you don't risk an electric shock.
2. Remove side panels/grips
3. Remove the 4 housing screws
4. Pull or gently pry the clipper halves apart, exposing the batteries.
5. Remove batteries from the unit.
6. Twist batteries to break wires. Wires may also be cut.

I also own an MB-300. The battery still works good and I loved this trimmer but I need a new cutter blade for mine.

Can I replace my Remington Titanium MS 5200 shaver's battery myself and where do I buy the battery?


You will find compatible batteries for model MS-5200 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/batteries/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-shavers-p-211.html

To open the shaver body, remove one screw on the back. Also partially remove the 4 outer screws found on the metal plate under the cutters. Once these 4 screws are removed you can partially remove the top part of the shaver body (the parts with the trimmer on it). Then you will need to gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front of the shaver. This will reveal two more screws. Remove these to seperate the front and back of the shaver and access the batteries.
You will need to remove the wires from the batteries by melting the solder with a soldering iron. Solder in the new batteries and reassemble. Charge for 24 hours before use

I live in South Africa and my son has brought back a Panasonic shaver from the USA. Can our std 220v power outlet be suitable to charge the shaver? The power pack only mentions 120v input AC?


If the power supply that came with the unit says only 120V, you must use a voltage converter with the unit. If you plug the charger into your 220V system without a convertr, it will damage the charger

I've lost my remington bkt2000 charger and can't find a replacement. Any ideas? Are there any others that are interchangeable with this one? I am in UK


You will find a replacement charger available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

This item is a US version with US prongs and compatible with 120V. They will ship to you in the UK but you will also need a voltage converter to use with your 220V

Can i and how do i change a rechargeable battery on a Remington 9100? Where can i buy the battery assuming this can be done


You will find batteries at shaveroutlet.com. I have provided links below. Your shaver has either NiCd or NiMh cells. You will need to order the correct type and you will need to order two batteries

My shaver will not hold a charge. What could be the problem


Remington model R-9500

Your shaver will not hold a charge because the shavers internal batteries need replacing. If you know how to solder, you can do it yourself or you can have it professionally done. You can purchase batteries or professional repair service from shaveroutlet.com. See links below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-shavers-p-211.html

http://shaveroutlet.com/professional-battery-replacement-for-most-models-p-374.html

If you feel this is something you want to try yourself, you will need to remove the back cover of the shaver. You will easily notice two screws on the back. There is a third screw that is near the very top on the back and it is underneath the trimmer where the trimmer connects to the shaver. Remove these 3 screws to take off the back cover.
Inside you will see the batteries. You will need to remove the metal clip that helps secure them into place. You will then need to use a soldering iron to remove the wires from the ends of the old batteries. Solder the new batteries to the wires and put everything back together in reverse order
Once the job has been completed, charge the new batteries for 24 hours.

CHI Flat Iron GF-1001


I have bought thermal fuses from DigiKey. They have various temperature ratings. If you have a multimeter or ohmmeter you can check to see if the fuse still has continuity. If the iron sometimes works, it's not the fuse. Cords are the most common problem, but if it was plugged into a 220V I'm not sure what might have gotten fried. There is a small IC in there too, for temp control or something: if it's fried you are SOL. Save it for parts though...
