Just pop up the top with the cutters. Next pull the cutters from the shaver in the back prongs. Insert the trimmer head and reverse operation when you are fiished.

SOURCE: Trimmer won't work

There's a post inside the trimmer that provides a location for counterforce when the teeth move; this is either weak, designed to break after time, or breaks simply because it's not designed to be opened/closed while running. It's relatively easy--if you're patient--to take the razor/trimmer apart and see the problem. A friend and I drilled an appropriately-sized hole through the back of the trimmer at the snapped-post location (which, if one looks at the outside casing of the trimmer is at the bottom of the indented arc), used a dremel tool to cut off an appropriately-sized metal rod, inserted it in the hole, then sealed it with hard (probably model) putty. Years later, it still works fine and--most importantly--I didn't have to buy a new razor.

SOURCE: sideburn trimmer does not cut anymore but still

It is pretty common for the trimmer to get jammed up with hair particles and skin oils which can prevent the blade from moving.

Try running the blades of the trimmer in a shallow dish of rubbing alcohol. Then clean the blades vigorously with an old toothbrush or similar. If the blades still does not move try using the tip of a small flat screwdriver or similar object to push and advance the moveable blade. Repeat running in alcohol and brush clean

If this doesnt work, you will probably need a new trimmer

Can I replace the trimmer blades (not the shaver heads) on my Philips 8175XL? I use them all the time and they are wearing out. Where do I get them and how do I install them?

You will find a replacement trimmer at See link below

See disassembly video tutorial at using the link below. You will not have to disassemble as far as the video shows. Just remove the back cover and the trimmer can be 'disjointed' from the cover

I would like to know if Philips Norelco T980 Turbo Vacuum Trimmer can be used with the European voltage system . Do i have to buy a transformer volt converter for this product or does it work both in...

T980 models sold in the US are for use with 120V only. You should be able to read the voltage requirements on the charger. This information should be printed on the transformer.

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864

hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,

How do I change the Battery in My Norelco T3000 Beard Trimer

Remove Phillips head screw at bottom of trimmer. Separate body in two being careful to notice how on/off switch is assembled. Unsolder the ni-cad battery from circuit board. Install new ni-cad battery of the same physical size that has solder tabs on it and solder it to the circuit board. I used a ni-hi (nickle metel hydride) instead of ni-cad which had different charging requirements so I limit charge time to no more than 16 hours for a discharged battery. It had been working fine for over a year. Don't forget to apply a few drops of light oil to the cutting blades to extend cutting life. Replacement blades are about $30.00
