Question about Norelco 8160XLCC Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Jet clean system will not clean.

I have purchased the Norelco 8160XLCC with the Jet clean system. It had been working fine until today. After shaving I went to clean it and the system would only move up and down into the solution without turning the shaver on as usual to geget the full cleaning. The Cleaning ligh and the charging light on the Jet Clean System continuously flash. The Cleaning light flashes 3 times and pauses then 3 mre times and pauses, which keeps repeating. The Chargng light flashes, which is supposed to turn off when charging then turn on again when cleaning is finished. Is there anything that would cause this?

Re: Jet clean system will not clean.

I had the exact same problem. Then I put more solution in so that it was just above the MAX line and it worked fine. So make sure you have enough cleaning solution in the system and it should work great.

I've purchased new blades for my Arctic. they did fine until they got clogged. what can i do to clean my blades? this IS a problem. if i can't find a solution i can't purchase norelco again. please...

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.

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 See link below

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/
