I have the same problem, but it is open.  The color code Brown - Green - Brown - Gold.  If it is a resistor, the value must be 150 ohms +/- 5%.  To confirm the value, I open the working trimmer and remove one leg from the circuit and measure resistance.  The meter reads only 4 ohms.  Therefore, I think it is an inductor (150uH +/-5%), not resistor.

I accidentally ran my 3405 LC on 220V ! What can I try to fix it?

Most likely R3 (470 ohm) and R4 (430 ohm) are burned and need to be replaced, these are both 1/4 watt resistors. Probably good to check the diodes for a dead short, but these resistors most likely opened first. Hope this helps, Good luck!

I have had my current Wahl Peanut trimmer for about 8 months. Recently it is "biting me". In other words, it seems all of a sudden the blade is sharp on my skin and has not been so in the past. I...

if you use this peanut trimmer on a daily basis the blade is worn. On the peanut trimmer you can't sharpen them or adjust them, just replace them with a new one. On the other hand if the peanut blade was biting since you purchase it Wahl will fix at no charge.Most likly they will send you a new blade.

I need the value of resistor R1 on my model

Hi. I have access to the Service Manual for this model, the only technical information it provides is this:

- Voltage : 100-240 V AC 50-60 Hz
- Power consumption : Motor depending
- Motor Voltage : 1,2 V
- Power system : Rechargeable

If you have no luck, Part No 4222 036 09060 is for the PCB.

I purchased a Peanut and did not get instructions for it. Can you e-mail me some?? Thanks, Mary

Using your thumb and index finger press hard on the nut until it cracks (you may need to use your other hand as well). Then break away the shell and eat the peanut inside. Discard the peanut shell in the trash

Battery replacement norelco t7500 shaver

If you know how to solder, it's easy to replace the rechargeable battery in the Norelco T7500 shaver, thanks its beautiful mechanical design: You just remove the single screw at the bottom, and the entire charging circuit board & battery simply slides out, still attached to the shaver by a folded ribbon cable!
Then, you just pop off the plastic shields, unsolder the battery, and solder in a new AA 1.2V NiCd solder-tail battery. Or, you can use a higher-capacity AA NiMH battery for a longer run-time, at the expense of fewer recharge cycles for NiMH.
In either case, dispose of old NiCd batteries properly: They contain cadmium, which is an environmental poison!
