I can only comment genericaly for this:

Most likely the internal drive shaft is defective. In some models there is a gear box. This may not be coupling correcty due to a failure. In any of these cases it will most likely need replacement parts to be reliable again. Your shaver should never fall apart!

You can call the company and enquire about where to send the shaver for service. Some of these companies have a flat rate fee for service. Look for your reciept to see if it is possibly under warranty. If the estimate for repair is too high, then you should consider a new shaver.

I would suggest for you to try getting a higher end type model. From personal experience and the research that I have done in the past, I found the Philips and the Panasonic to probably be the best shavers around at this time. You may pay a little more, but they are worth the few exra dollars for the performance and reliablity.

Make sure you are using the trimmer with the shaving heads on the shaver. With heads removed, the trimmer on the back will not work properly. If thats not the problem, the trimmer is broken or jammed. clen the blades really well with a toothbrush and rubbing alcohol. If they're jammed, this will probably free them up. If that doesnt do it, the trimmer is probably broken and that part is no longer available from Remington. If you really like this model, you can find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com

Latch inside is broken. This mkes it difficult to use the shaver. You cant fix it to work properly but you can super glue it down if you just want to use the shaver.

Another alternative is to replace the handle portion. This is available at shaveroutlet.com

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!

Brand new andis trimmer pulling hair and not cutting good


The questions about Andis T-Outliner or Andis Styliner II, about not cutting or pulling hair.
On the Andis T-Outliner trimmer if the sharpness of the blade is worn out, all the tricks and treats won't make this blade to cut hair. Before I do any kind of work to the trimmer, I first test the coil for the right amount power, I can get out of the coil, without this power, it doesn't matter how new or old the trimmer is, the trimmer will not cut hair at all. If the coil is good, I will sharpen the blade and set it according to your needs (lineups or shave setting) after the blade is sharpened and set. The trimmer will need to be, adjusted for alignment to the blade, adjust the power of the coil, and adjust the tension for the blade. All these factors are involved in the Andis T-Outliner to cut hair clean especially lineups or shaving. These adjustments work together for the trimmer to work properly. I know that we all trying to save money, which is part of life, but sometimes frustration will take over and say hell with it, I'll buy another or forget it. Manufactures make mistakes, sometimes the trimmer was not sharpened or adjusted correctly. Any case, what I'm trying to say here, if you try all the tricks & treats and can get your trimmer to work, it may be easier for you to send it to a professional to sharpen & repair the problem and set the blade according to your needs (lineups or shave setting) We specialize on Andis T-Outliner Trimmers. Our complete sharpening & repair service is $19.99 each trimmer, this includes return shipping. We sharpen the blade, adjust and set the blade according to your request (Lineup or Shave setting) make all the necessary adjustments for alignment, power, tension to make your trimmer work better than new.

I have a Conair GMT189CGB 13 piece styling trimmer how do I change the nose/ear trimmer? I have no idea how it snaps in? what a terrible design!


You do not need to unscrew anything. Instead, simply take the beard trimmer (with the beard shaving blade still screwed on) in your hand, with the power button and "CONAIR" logo facing you. Then, put your thumb under the shaving blade and apply force to pop it off. So, the shaving blade, and the top part of the unit that it's screwed into will simply pop off. Then, you simply align the nose/ear hair attachment, and snap it in to the beard trimmer unit.

On a Wahl Beard Trimmer 9876-536 -- what's the button on the side of the trimmer for?


The button info requested is almost 2 years old, but on my trimmer the button to the left of the power swt on the side is to lock the trimmer blade in the front or rear position. It is kinda weak and you can still move the blade if you push it. (I do seem to have the same one shown in the picture here.)
Later!

My andis trimmer is not giving a very close shave. I like to have sharp line-ups. How do I fix it? I'm not sure of the model, but I'm using the website where I bought it as reference(...


This Andis model is not very good for shaving,I purchase one before didn't do the job. I recommend The Andis GTO you can have it sharpen and adjusted to shave. check out www.mannys-sharpening.com I had purchase my Andis T-outliner service and adjust for shaving. The good thing about manny's sharpening when you purchase Andis T-Outliner he will ask you how would you like your trimmer set at' for line ups or Fade cuts or Shaving set. he resharpen the blade and make sure the trimmer is adjust power and set blade and trimmer too your request. You may pay a little more but it's worth it. Oh one more thing about his service and warranty after 3 month he gives you a free sharpening and service on the Andis trimmer you purchase from him. You only paid for return shipping. I try his service and this guy is good in sharpening and repair. I hope this was help for Tim

Braun Pulsonic model 9595. Trimmer will not close properly. Can I repair this myself?


The trimmer is replaceable and can be purchased as an assembly http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/brshrese7pul.html You will T-6 and T-8 torx drivers to take apart the head end of the shaver. Using these tools, remove the swiveling head, the hold down cover over the motor assembly, and then pop off the drive arm for the trimmer. Now the broken trimmer assembly can be slid out of the end of the shaver by carefully prying between the case where the on/off button is located and the black trimmer assembly base with a small flat blade jeweler's screwdriver. The new trimmer assembly can then be slid into the case and the shaver reassembled. Just be sure the ends of the retraction spring on the new trimmer assembly are installed over the little chrome retaining lugs for them or your trimmer will not fully retract (my trimmer assembly arrived with the spring ends loose and not retained by the lugs).

Ms3 2700 trimmer will not lock in closed position.


This is a common problem with this type unit. Most likely, the mechanism that locks the trimmer in the down position is broken. It can't be effectively fixed but you can permanantly put it in the down position by super gluing it down. This will allow you to use the shaver to shave but you will no longer be able to use the trimmer.

Another remedy would be to purchase the replacement lower unit found on shaveroutlet.com. See link below
