Question about Norelco Arcitec Electric Shaver with Jet Clean System - Gray/Black

Open Question

Norelco jet clean base jammed up

I just got a norelco 1050cc arctic shaver with the jet clean base. The shaver should go into the base, but the mechanism does not move. it is in the "down" position. Nothing I try will allow it to move in any way. It came this way, I have never had the shaver in the base. Is there some way to un-stick it? I can see there are some slots in there that it looks like it should slide up and down.

SOURCE: Norelco shaver 6866XL won't charge, light glowsred

The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.

HQ5 is not compatible with HQ55. I've checked the Service Manual and HQ5 is the correct part. It's got to do with the driving mechanism for the head.

Does the arcitec 1050cc come with a seperate charging stand as well as the jet clean device?


Originally, all Arcitec models came with a simple charging stand. That part is no longer available. If you need a simple charging method for your shaver, there is a charging/travel pod. It can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com at the link below

Can the arm of the jet clean system be retracted into base for travel or storage


Yes, after you push the start button on the unit, pull the plug out of the wall socket when the arm gets to its bottom position. It will stop at this lowered position. When you plug it in again, it will go back to its upright position. Norelco ships the new cleaning units in this contracted position. When you plug it in presto! You are ready to go.

It's a hack, but you can use needle nose plyers to let you pry open those razor blade heads to clean the blades inside the heads. My Arcitec shaver stopped working after being clogged, rather than pay $50 for new blades, I just opened it up, took out the blades and cleaned it with an old toothbrush and soap.

Lost directions on how to use jet clean system. Do not know how to use it.


Visit this site below and enter your product number. If you don't have your product number or it doesn't appear, then type in "jet clean" then scroll down and click on personal care. You can then click on a jet clean model and then open the .pdf of the manual. The instructions should be similar. There is nothing to using it. Fill the reservoir with jet clean solution to the max line. Put the shaver in the cradle heads down and press the button on the front of the cleaning base. If it doesn't stay down and clean you may have another problem. If so, then search "Norelco Arcitec Electric Shaver with Jet Clean" on this site and you can find answers to your problems.

How much Jet clean solution do i use in the Norelco Jet clean system? Is it straight solution to the line or a mix of solution and water?


The solution should not be deluted. You should fill the basin to the 'fill line' with the Jet Clean solution.
Jet Clean solution can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/norelco-hq200-smart-touch-jet-clean-solution-p-258.html

If you do not know where th fill line is on your cleaning station, refer to your user manual. I would offer a link to the user manual but you did not state the specific model number of your shaver/

Norelco Arcitec Razor cleaning cycle does not start. Razor lowers into cleaning fluid well below surface of fluid and returns to rest/charge position immediately. Low fluid LED blinks. Fluid level is at...


I have had 3 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.
