SOURCE: replacing batteries in a 6705x norelco shaver

To open up your shaver, remove the lotion cover and remove all 5 screws with a small flat head screwdriver. They have a star head, but also a flat notch. Since they shaver is water tight, the first time you open it up it will be difficult, but if you pry off with your screwdriver it should pop off.
Towards the head of the shaver the batteries are soldered to the circuit board. Pull the tail end of the batteries out of the plastic holder and cut them at the top end as close to the batteries as you can, or CAREFULLY bend it back and forth to snap the metal. Dispose of the batteries responsibly as you would any batteries.

Hope it helps you.

SOURCE: Replacing Heads for 8140XL Norelco shaver

Same thing happened to my father's shaver. After working on it for about 30 mins, this is how I fixed it. You need to start with the top silver piece/cover. Turn it over so you see inside of it. Drop the 3 screens into the holes upside down (so they face out). You need to rotate the screens until they sit as low as possible. Now drop in the 3 blades, again sharp side down. There should be a triangular piece with 3 circles attached to it. One side is gray, and the other side has a black triangular piece. If you look closely each leg of the black piece has a tiny picture of a lock and an arrow. Rotate the black piece in the opposite direction of the arrow. Place the gray side down lining it up with the three blades. Now rotate the black piece, it will lock into position, and hold the blades in place! Finally, the silver head has a little hinge on one side. This hinge is flexiable. Bend it to a 90 degree angle, and slip it into the notch on the top part of the main body of the shaver. Close the head part, in my father's shaver I had to press a lever in the front to snap it into place.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: where can i find replacement heads for a norelco

The type of heads you need have been discontinued by Norelco for several years. It would be virtually impossible to fing a new set made by Norelco.
There is an aftermarket version available. You will find these at See link below.

How to clean norelco 8846XL shaver ?

You will need to disassemble the heads and brush them out. You can soak the parts in rubbing alcohol if they are gummed up. This will loosen the material up so that it can be brushed away. An old toothbrush works well for this.

Wont run at all - gradually faded and then finally quit all together

It sounds as if the inside of the shver is full of old hair and the like. It needs a good cleaning. SOMETIMES this does not solve the problem and the brushes in the motor could be bad. it is cheaper to replace the shaver than fix one.

I have a Rotatract electric razor, HP1601. Do I need to lubricate and if so, how?. Can I still get parts, and if so, where and what?Can I get a manual somewhere. this is a very old razor that I haven't...

I have no way to get you a copy of an owner manual as this is a very old model made before Norelco begnning offering on-line user manuals.
There are some parts available for your shaver. The parts most likely to need replced are the shaver heads and the motor brushes. You will find these parts at See links below

It is suggested that all shavers have the heads lubricated. Norelco makes a product for this and it is also found at

Internal lubrication is not often needed but if your shaver is a bit noisy a 3 in one oil can be used. You will need to take off the outer case of the shaver by removing two screws on the one side and one screw on the other. Once the insides are removed, you can remove the two metal clips that hold the gear housing on. You can then remove the gears and lubricate the spindels they fit onto and oil the pinion gear.
Reassemble in reverse order

Shaver was running slow and then died. Replaced

Your original symptoms sure sound like dying batteries. Brushes can wear out. Check if it runs better if you change the orientation of the shaver. Does holding it upside down make it work better or worse? If the speed changes, its probably the brushes. You can buy new brushes, but the Norelco repair place will probably give you a hard time since they want to repair it for you so you have to insist. I have made brushes for the shaver by filing down brushes from some other motor, but this is messy and doesn't always work.

Charging is full but equipment is not starting

if the charge indicator is working and dispays full, you probably have some type of loose connection inside. Check the connection between the circuit board and motor. Less likely but possible that the motor brushes may be worn out. One way to test this is to remove head and turn shaver on...then turn one of the three gears by hand in a clockwise direction. If it then starts to turn slowly on it's own, the brushes are probably bad
