    Are you certain that this is an 8585 shaver? Are you pressing the blue switch downward on the front? Is the cleaning cartridge installed?

You can check the little catches that is made of stainless steel, and see if you can reshape them slightly to catch and lock the shaver again. Sometimes they can become a little out of shape/bent from pulling the shaver out of the cleaner base. You can try to use a screw driver to carefully push the spring catches back in shape.

How do you remove caulk smeared on tiles?

Paint type razor blade used to remove paint from window glass. If the tiles are "rough" that won't work. So good strong brush and a lot of elbow-grease. There may be a strong cleaner recommended by the Caulk Mfg. Lastly, my wife loves 50% household bleach for all kinds of things. I hate the smell though. Need excellent ventilation for strong cleaners or the bleach. "try a small unobvious place first" .

How do i fix vacuum cleaner so it stays lock in place

Hi, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum.

Is the locking mechanism preventing it from being locked into place at all? The locking button may be loose, or has shifted out of place. What model of vacuum are you using? The fix could be as easy as securing the button back into place. A general fix would be to unplug the vacuum then turn it on its side, and there should be a space below where the locking mechanism should be. Without being too forceful use a screw driver to lightly examine the area and feel for anything that may be loose. Again, this would depend on the make and model of vacuum. If you've noticed of late that your vacuum isn't performing up to par feel free to visit Crucial Vacuum for any help you would need with regulatory maintenance on your vacuum.

How do i clean my with my philips hq2000. instructions are in a different langue

  • 1 Set the Jet Clean System base on a flat surface and pull the cleaning reservoir out of the base.
  • 2 Unscrew the fill cap on the reservoir, pour Jet Clean Solution into the reservoir and replace the reservoir in the base.
  • 3 Plug the power cord of the cleaning base into and electrical outlet.
  • 4 Remove the protective cover on the razor head and place it to the side. The protective cover must be removed or the cleaning system will not work.
  • 5 Slide the razor head into the base, push back on the razor handle and press the locking lever down to keep it in place. The indicator light on the cleaning base will blink, indicating the razor is inserted properly and charging.
  • 6 Press the "On/Off" button on the side of the cleaning base. The razor will lower into the cleaning solution and begin the cleaning process, which takes approximately one hour. The razor will rise out of the cleaning solution when the cleaning process is complete.
  • 7 Lift up on the locking lever, remove the razor from the cleaning base and rinse the razor heads under warm water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. The razor is now clean and ready for use.

  • If you just have the solution and not the Jet Clean System, then I would presume you could soak just the heads in the solution to clean them and then rinse it off.

    Wahl Razor will not realign after removing blades for cleaning!

    This is always a problem with clippers, it's just a matter of holding the blades tightly in place and getting the screws in as tightly as possible without letting the blades go. This has always worked for me in the past.
