The shaver at times makes a whirring sound and doesn't cut properly.

    I have the same problem. The cutter block is somehow failing to engage properly with the moving part (the central strip) of the "foil". If you look closely this part of the foil stops moving when it makes the whirring sound. I've played about but can't fix it myself. Very annoying!

I had same problem, replaced Motor Drive (sold by once I learned how to open shaver:
at the bottom, remove the plastic 'cap' that surrounds where the cord plugs into shaver by gently prying it off with a small screwdriver or similar object. once removed, the side grips just pull off which reveals 4 screws. remove screws and shaver will seperate into 2 halves and 'guts' simply plug into place. Reassemble in reverse.
Hope it fixes your problem.

Batteries for your shaver are 1.2V. If you have instaled it properly with good solder connections it sounds like there may be a problem with the board

How to use an electric shaver

If you are a using an electric shaver for the first time, I hope that this article will get you going. Proper techniques will ensure the best, closest shave possible. Maintaining the razor by properly cleaning and recharging it will also ensure that the razor works correctly and does not malfunction during use. Proper care and maintenance of the electric razor will also ensure that the razor will last for years to come. Consider this article as a shaving-best-practices template for your first electric shaver.<br /> <br /> Firstly, clean your face and dry it. Electric shavers do a better job when your face is clean. Turn the electric razor on and begin shaving against the direction of hair growth, moving the shaving head linearly and in circles. Circular motion Stretch the skin with your other hand to make the hair stand up straighter so the razor blades shave closer.<br /> <br /> After shaving, turn it off and rinse the cutting heads under warm water. You can also use jet clean system once a week to clean your shaver. Make sure that you charge it for the time specified in user manual. Overcharging may cause damage to the battery.

The shaver is **** after using it still not smooth , it says it has holes and slots for all type of growth ( after full charge it sounds like it has not the energy to cut baby hair) for all the grand prix...

First thing, reset the outlet. That's a common thing looked over. Next (if that doesn't work) is pull out the warranty papers because if it isn't the outlet, then it's the product. If you have had it for less than a year, they should allow you to use your warranty and have them fix it.

Razor making vibrating noises and not shaving properly - feel like hairs being pulled out. beard trimmer will not cut and will also not clip back down in to main shaver when not needed

You should try detaching the head of the shaver and cleaning it thoroughly. You should then try oiling it with the oil that came with it, or any lubricating oil that is safe with metals.
Let me know if this helps!

Shaver cuts off several times while shaving and same plug in wall?

The shaver guard is tension locked. Make sure your pressing it down just hard enough so it clicks into the lock position. This will prevent it from falling off.

It does nto cut like it use to. The blade is only 6 months old Whats the best way to clean it. It seem to be cutting with only 1 of the triple head

The Arcitec shavers have a poor design which makes it difficult to clean well. The blades can not be removed from their combs, therefore, the only way to clean this is by running them in a cleaning solution. Norelco makes a shaver cleaned that can be used for this. It is available from at the link below. Rubbing alcohol can also be used.

Simply fill a container about 1 inch deep with the cleaner and then stick the shaver head down into the liquid with it running. Run for several seconds, remove and repeat several times.

Note that if your shaver is badly clogged, this still may not work that well due to the poor design of the shaver heads. If you require replacement, you will also find them at See link below

Razor is not cutting

When the shaver is no longer cutting properly, this usually means that the heads need changed. You will find replacements for model 7735X at See link below<br /> <br /> <a href=""></a>
