I've purchased new blades for my Arctic. they did fine until they got clogged. what can i do to clean my blades? this IS a problem. if i can't find a solution i can't purchase norelco again. please...

It's a hack, but you can use needle nose plyers to let you pry open those razor blade heads to clean the blades inside the heads. My Arcitec shaver stopped working after being clogged, rather than pay $50 for new blades, I just opened it up, took out the blades and cleaned it with an old toothbrush and soap.

1.5 year old 7140XL worked fine, then next time would not turn on at all. Charge light shows charged.Any suggestions?

There are two likely possibilities. These problems would either be that the head is damaged or jammed or there is a loose connection inside.
You can easily test if it is the heads by flipping up the head assembly and then turn it on. If it runs with the heads flipped up but not when they are snapped down, you can assume that the heads are the problem and they will need to be replaced. You will find replacements for this model at See link below

If the shaver will not run with the head flipped up either, you may have a loose connection inside...usually from the moto to the circuit board or from the battery to the circuit board. You may be able to locate and repair this but if your shaver is 1.5 year old, it is still under warranty. If this is the case, contact Norelco using the info in your user manual for the warranty

Lost directions on how to use jet clean system. Do not know how to use it.

Visit this site below and enter your product number. If you don't have your product number or it doesn't appear, then type in "jet clean" then scroll down and click on personal care. You can then click on a jet clean model and then open the .pdf of the manual. The instructions should be similar. There is nothing to using it. Fill the reservoir with jet clean solution to the max line. Put the shaver in the cradle heads down and press the button on the front of the cleaning base. If it doesn't stay down and clean you may have another problem. If so, then search "Norelco Arcitec Electric Shaver with Jet Clean" on this site and you can find answers to your problems.

I do not know how to take each one of the 3 heads out in order to clean it

Hi. The shaver heads are not removable like on older models, you'll have to grip the grips on each side of the head and swing the top open to clean.

How i clean my razor

I have this razor as well. Just flip the heads open, dump the hairs in the garbage and rinse the heads (while open) under hot water. Keep the heads open until dry and close on up.

You want to go to this site and get a repair manual.
Follow the instruction and remove the swivel head. Then remove the 2 screws at the bottom. I still have problem sliding the two side head support off.

Norelco shaver, 7310XL will not run with the headsdown in place- will run if open? The shaver is charged and all the heads are in place but when you close the heads down on the shaver - locked down...

Make sure that the comb and cutters have been dismantled and cleaned thoroughly. If they are jammed up with hair they won't work. Also check the surface of the comb and make sure there are no bumps or dents that will stop the head rotating.
