Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler can not remove blade to change
I am unable to get the blade loose from the cartridge head to change it. feel like i have just flushed money down the toilet. is there some magic that i am missing. i simply want to remove the blade that came with the razor which is now dull and replace it and keep using the razor. if i can't remove the blade without using force, the razor is useless.
Re: Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler can not remove blade...
I think some of you have it mixed up... this is the Pro Styler, a sort of powered stick that has interchangable heads (one for shaving, another with a guard & the one that comes installed on it for 'styling", i.e. trimming up sideburns, etc).
Anyone have a better idea? I can't seem to remove the styler & I'm actually sitting here with a face full of shaving cream as I wanted to try out the shaving portion of this rig.

So to disassemble you'll need a butter knife or some stout thin piece of steel. Wedge it in-between the rear black eject button and the chrome toppiece. Pry uppwards,(there is a spring right where you need to pry, try not to crush this, also be careful, it will fall out once your far enough) trying to pop the back of the chrome piece up slightly. There is only a dab of glue holding the back on. Once the glue is broke, push the trimmer back so you can see the motor spindle. If you look inside towards the front there are two hinges that must be pryed up with a razor. As you pry pull off the chrome piece. Then all you need is a torex to disassemble the trimmer head.
This depends greatly on the individual and the thickness or coarseness of the hair. Some prefer to change a blade after using it once or twice, others after 3 or 4 times while many expect between 5 to 7 uses.
The key is to change it regularly and always use a sharp blade. If you feel it dragging on your skin it's time to change it!
Wet shaving at its simplest, is just that - shaving with water, a razor blade, and some sort of lubricant (lather, soap, etc.) on your face. Men have shaved this way for centuries, starting early on with a sharp knife or stone, progressing to the straight razor, safety (double-edge) razors, and eventually cartridge razors from companies like Gillette, etc.
Things You'll Need: Three-sided blade sharpener (coarse, medium, fine) Small flat head screwdriver step 1 Using the flat head screwdriver, unscrew the trimmer blades and remove them carefully. Wipe off any oil, grime or dirt that has built up on them as this may make it more difficult to handle and keep them in place during the manual portion of the sharpening process. Step 2 Separate the blades and re-apply only the moving blade to the tension spring. Then apply the moving blade to sharpener surface and turn the clippers or trimmers on. Hold the moving blade on the surface of the sharpener and apply light pressure while moving the blade back and forth for one to two minutes. You can also lay the blade on the sharpener first, then put the trimmer tension spring directly on the blade. Step 3 Turn off the clippers and remove the moving blade. It should look shiny and feel sharper. Step 4 Remove the guide from the guide blade by unscrewing it using the flat head screwdriver. Place the guide blade on the sharpening surface and manually run it back and forth for about one or two minutes or until it's been sharpened to your satisfaction. Screw the guide back onto the guide blade while being careful to readjust it before you tighten the screws. Step 5 Screw all the blades back on the trimmers and power them on to make sure they've been fitted correctly. Test them on your own hair to make sure they've been sharpened correctly and are set to the desired depth. Ads by Google Best Knife Sharpener Sharpen like the pros. Complete kit w/ 1x30 belt sander.

Depend on STIHL Electric Trimmers. www.STIHLdealers.com Tips & Warnings Which surface you choose, whether coarse, medium or fine, depends on how dull your blades are and how sharp you want to make them. If they are very dull, you will want to start with the coarse or medium side of the sharpener. If they just need a small amount of sharpening, use the fine side. If you've never sharpened electric trimmers before, you may want to visually observe and feel the sharpness of the blades with your fingers before you start to sharpen it. It may be hard to tell if the blades are sharp enough if you don't feel them just before you apply them to the sharpening surface.
These are not consider repairable but rather are basically a throw-away razor handle, especially since these sell for under $5.
I would suggest that you contact the Gillette company, and let them know you just purchased this product and blades, as they will likely send you a new handle or a coupon to get one free at your local store.
Disposable razor blade companies want to keep customers using their blades, thus the handles aren't their main way to make profits.
