I disassembled to clean and can't put it together again. Please help
I will describe how to re-assemble a 5886xl, it should be similar...but maybe not. If you mean just the shaving head, not the whole shaver, skip to the bottom here.
There are 2 circuit boards within the 5886xl, the bottom one with display snaps into the top board's multi pin connector, but before, there is a nylon spacer that goes between the boards, alignment is simple, note the cutout for the beeper. If replacing the batteries, you can solder new leads onto the old areas, either by poking wires through, or if having broken off the old battery, onto the flat thin areas left. These may break or come loose during soldering however, so the through-way may be better. Now you can reassemble. There are 2 screws holding the head on, the black plastic piece with the motor attached and the 3 rotating driver sections. The bottom circuit board should fit into the display containing side piece fairly easily. Snap the plug connector into the hole. Screw the 2 screws that hold the motor/head assembly to the display side. There is a retaining piece for the battery in this model, which has a snap that goes into the 2nd circuit board, and the v-wedge holds the battery in place.If using a prebound pack, you can leave this out, and use the small piece of neoprene foam that prevents shaking, that will work. Ok, there are 2 more pieces in this model here...you place a piece that has a hole in the middle (to accept a screw) and 2 clasps...this goes right behind the motor, and over the battery posts. Should snap in. There is another piece that goes over the charge connector, it has 2 holes middle, and 2 to the sides, those at the sides get 2 more silver screws. In this model, there are 2 black pieces, slide them into the sides appropriately. Now place the top section into the shaving head assembly, drop it down onto the back with the connector...should line up just right. There is a screw hidden in the popup shaver section, open that, apply a brown/black screw. The last screw goes at bottom. Attach the head, and you are done.
Now if you removed the retaining clip that holds the individual heads on...place the head assembly on a desk, shaving side down, with any cutout for release button at bottom. You will have 3 screen pieces (which apply to your face)...each has a blade inside. So, if re-assembling, place the screens inside the head assembly. Then insert a blade into each. Apply the tri-circular blade retaining clip piece into the assembly, push gently, and rotate the little round gear piece in the middle while doing so, clockwise to set. Pop the head back onto the razor. The heads should auto-seat once you turn it on. Voila? :)
