Remington R-1000 battery replacement

I need new batteries for my Remington R-1000 shaver. The ''manual'' tells how to take the shaver apart to get to the batteries, but it really doesn't. Does anyone know how to take this shaver apart?

I guess by now you have either thrown out the shaver or found out how to take the cover off.
The secret is to remove the bottom cover plate (Cap) as described in the manual. There is a small slot at the back of the charging cord recess (see photo) that allows you to pop it off with a small, flat blade screwdriver. There are 2 screws under the cap, and 2 more at the top under the trimmer assembly, which is removed as described in the manual (the manual states there are only 3 screws holding the cover).
The batteries are AA NiMH, 1800 mAh capacity, which I hope to get at The Source (used to be Radio Shack in Canada).
When removing the batteries, make sure to carefully pry off the heat sensor which is attached to one battery with a dab of silicone (and which must be reattached later).
I have attached a few photos to show the slot in the cap, and the battery wire colours when you are reconnecting new batteries.

    Your pictures did not help in the least. I could not find a way to pry that bottom cap off. I finally ended up pulling on the back until it bent enough to pop the cap off with the pressure.

    Your picture did not help in the least. I could not figure out how to pry the bottom cap off. I finally ended up bending the back cover out of place until the pressure popped the cover. It damaged the plastic abit, but it didn't break. Now off to buy some batteries. My wife offered to solder them for me since my hands shake too much for that.

You will find the correct battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/replacement-battery-for-remington-df-ms2-some-braun-p-213.html

To replace the batteries, start by removing the foils and cutters. Then, gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front. This will reveal two screws at the bottom. Remove screws. Then gently pry off the silver metal plate that is at the top of the shaver. You can then gently pry the front and back case apart.
Inside, you will find a circuit board with the batteries attached. For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Will not start..?


Battery is probably dead. Replacing batteries is possible but you will tear up the shaver getting it apart as the case is glued together. I suggest purchasing a lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below

To open up the shaver, gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front with a small flat screwdriver or similar. This will reveal 2 screws at the bottom. Remove the screws and the flat plate under the cutters that clips on there. You can then gently pry apart the two halves.
You can then access the batteries, remove the old ones and solder the new ones in place

Rechardable battery . can you tell me how to take apart a remington shaver. to change the batterys. i have MODEL NO, MS2-300 RS4843. YOURS D.Sweeney.


First, remove the foil and cutters. You will then need to gently pry off the rubberized front cover with a small flat screwdriver or similar object. You will then be able to access and remove the two screws at the bottom. You will then need to pop the case apart by carefully inserting a flat screwdriver at the bottom between the AC port and the case. Once you pop it apart you will need to remove the metal clip at the top that so that the case can be fully seperated.
You will then be able to see the batteries.
For easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Remington es1000


The Remington ES-1000 was probably the best slot-head shaver ever made by Remington. I cannot believe that the market demand was so low as to prompt a cancellation of production. I believe that the production run was limited to about 4 years or so. I have 8 of these shavers and keep a couple old Remington slot heads around as well. The ES-1000 was not perfect. The batteries were way too small and stressed so battery life was poor.You could not buy individual blades as you could with past Remington slot-head units.Also, the edge of the head was too exposed and sharp and when used for body shaving would tend to cut the skin.Slot-head shavers are superior for body shaving and for skin that is suseptible to shaving bumps.They are also great for young men that are prone to ingrown hairs.My guess is that the Norelco 3 head has taken it's place. Those shavers actually use 3 small slot heads. Rumor has it that shavers.com is trying to have a new slot head manufactured in Asia.
