Question about Remington Smooth and Silky WDF-3000 Electric Shaver
I have a Reminigton (PG-250) beard trimmer that is very similar in appearance. I was able to get to the battery by inserting a small screwdriver into the botton (where it plugs in) and twisting the bottom and top halves apart. There are no screws. Once you get it started, just go around the groove and pry it apart.

I have the .PDF file from remington for disassembling your shaver for you. Also this model is known for poor battery life and I recommend replacing the NiCd batteries with Lithium Ion batteries of the same size. This will give you much more shave time and 10 time the number of recharge cycles. Post me an E-mail address where you want me to sent the instructions to you or you can just E-mail me and request the instructions and I will attach the .PDF to my reply letter ( firstname.lastname@example.org). If you enclose your number I will call you for free and walk you through the process.
I hope you find this information valuable. If you do please take the time to rate this a FixYa. If you ever need my help again post it here and I will be notified of your need for further assistance by E-mail. I do this for a hobby so there will never be a charge.

Unfortunately this is almost impossible. The batteries are part of the circuit board, and Braun only authorize their service agents to replace the whole unit, and my local agent found that it had been discontinued. If you still want to have a go, two screws are hidden beneath the two grey plastic caps either side of the charging socket on the underside of the shaver which can be prized off quite easily. Once you have removed the screws, the small plastic section comes off. Now you can slide the outer casing off. A thin black cover at the back can then be unclipped, revealing the circuit board and batteries. The whole unit simply lifts out and would be easy to replace if you could find one! Rplacing the batteries would be far more difficult and risky. Good luck.

In the PDF instructions it describes how to remove the batteries. The instructions fail to mention that there is a spit of yellow glue that is holding one of the batteries to the curcuit board with a death grip. Undoubtedly, you will have to use a knife, not in the glue, but on the skin of the battery. Pull on the teather wire, and slice the battery skin around the glue.
If after removing the batteries, and you are not thouroughly discusted with the manufacturer, then purchase a couple of AA Ni-cad batteries solder the positive of one battery to the negative of the other. then solder the free positive end to the red wire, and then the blue wire to the free negative end. Then try to remember how to reverse the process and put it back together, without leaving any parts out. ;-)
There is a risk of injury by overheating the battery when soldering. That should be avoidable if you remember how to drop solder. Just like its name, it involves having the wire securely held in place. Then hold solder iron over the wire/battery end. Then take some rosin-core solder and apply the solder to the hot tip. Then make sure the newly melted solder lands on the contact. Keep in place until it cools and holds the wire to the battery.
If you think this is better than writing to Remington complaining that they did not make it easier and use contacts, instead of solder, so we can simply pop in a new set of batteries. Or maybe look at other manufacturers, and see if they are any better.

Batteries for your shaver must be soldered in place. You will find battery pack for this model at shaveroutlet.com. Link below
To replce, first open the shaver by removing the two screws on the back. The back cover can then be removed and you can access the batteries. For easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Testimonial: "Clear explanation which explained why I could not do the repair myself and would have to send it to a repair facility"

Start by removing the foil and cutter. To open the shaver body, start by removing the two round screw covers on the bottom by prying them out. Then remove screws. The insides of the shaver can then be slid out through the top. Batteries simply unsnap from their connectors. Install new batteries and reassemble in reverse order
