    Here is the link to the operation & repair of the shaver. Apparently they know of this problem, becasuue the instructions say to drain the battery evey six months and recharge.



    I say it should have a reminder built-in, for the money I paid for it.

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.

How do I find where the battery is located?


To open the shaver and access the batteries, you must start by gently prying off the rubberized grip on the front. Once removed, you can access and remove two screws at the bottom. Under the cutters is a metal plate/clip. Remove this clip and the front of shaver can be removed and batteries accessed,
You will find replacement batteries at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two

I need to know how to change the battery. Can you send a manuel.


Printed instructions for battery replacement are not provided by the manufacturer.

You will find batteries for model ES-1000 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below (you will need 2 batteries)

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/replacement-battery-for-remington-df-ms2-some-braun-p-213.html

To open up the shaver, gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front with a small flat screwdriver or similar. This will reveal 2 screws at the bottom. Remove the screws and the flat plate under the cutters that clips on there. You can then gently pry apart the two halves.
You can then access the batteries, remove the old ones and solder the new ones in place

Batteries for ms5500


Give the folks at electricshaver.com a try. I tried to look up the replacement batteries for your shaver, but didn't find your model number listed on their site.

However, you can give them a call and see if they have them available, as many shavers use similar batteries, you just have to know the cross-reference list to figure it out. There phone number is 1-888-476-1785.

Normally I can provide the replacement part numbers for electric shavers and provide a link to the parts list for them/

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

It no longer turns on even if pluged in.


It needs new batteries. I followed the instructions in this forum and had Batteries Plus connect in series and put solder tabs on NMH batteries, then installed them myself. It cost $12.

Battery replacement


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 ( geokohler@gmail.com). 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.
Sincerely
George
