How can I fix the sideburn trimmer on my electric razor?

I've had the electric razor for about 2 years, everything works on it really well but suddenly today the sideburn trimmer would not cut anything. On closer inspection it seems the blade is not moving back and forth like it should and to the best I can see is not moving at all.

SOURCE: my Braun Syncro 7526 pop up trimmer stopped working.

There should have been a little tube of oil in the package when you bought it. the baldes dry out and then won't move. take the oil and run a small amount acrossed the blades. let it sit for a few seconds and then turn it on. once the oil lubes the blades, they should start moving again.

SOURCE: sideburn trimmer does not cut anymore but still

It is pretty common for the trimmer to get jammed up with hair particles and skin oils which can prevent the blade from moving.

Try running the blades of the trimmer in a shallow dish of rubbing alcohol. Then clean the blades vigorously with an old toothbrush or similar. If the blades still does not move try using the tip of a small flat screwdriver or similar object to push and advance the moveable blade. Repeat running in alcohol and brush clean

If this doesnt work, you will probably need a new trimmer

Can I replace the trimmer blades (not the shaver heads) on my Philips 8175XL? I use them all the time and they are wearing out. Where do I get them and how do I install them?


You will find a replacement trimmer at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

See disassembly video tutorial at shaveroutlet.com using the link below. You will not have to disassemble as far as the video shows. Just remove the back cover and the trimmer can be 'disjointed' from the cover

Sideburn cutter part needs to be put back on. It became loose and now has fallen out. I could fix this myself if I knew how to open shaver.


if the sideburn cutter has come off, it is because it is broken. You will need to replace it. You will find the item at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864


hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,

The on/off mechanism on my dads braun 6520 is stuck. It won't turn on.


Hello running girl, Have you looked to see if maybe the "lock-off" feature hasn't been engaged?

If you look at the razor, right above the on/off and sideburn trimmer selector, you should see a full bar that goes all the way across the shaver. Push this up toward the shaving head to unlock the razor and the shaver should work fine again.

This is a Braun design feature there to help prevent the shaver from accidently getting turned on when packed in your luggage, etc. and running down a fully charged shaver.

There is nothing like reaching for what you thought was a charged and ready to use shaver and discovering that it got switched on and ran the batteries down.

Other than having the lock off feature engaged, I can't think of anything that would cause the switch not to turn on, unless the shaver was dropped and damaged. If that's the case, you will want to have it looked at to make sure the printed circuit board hasn't been broken, etc.

Typically this isn't something that most folks can undertake a diagnois and repair, so I'd suggest you contact www.electricshaver.com or call them at 1-888-476-1785 to get an estimate for repairing it.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Trimmer won't work


There's a post inside the trimmer that provides a location for counterforce when the teeth move; this is either weak, designed to break after time, or breaks simply because it's not designed to be opened/closed while running. It's relatively easy--if you're patient--to take the razor/trimmer apart and see the problem. A friend and I drilled an appropriately-sized hole through the back of the trimmer at the snapped-post location (which, if one looks at the outside casing of the trimmer is at the bottom of the indented arc), used a dremel tool to cut off an appropriately-sized metal rod, inserted it in the hole, then sealed it with hard (probably model) putty. Years later, it still works fine and--most importantly--I didn't have to buy a new razor.

Trimmer malfunction


Hi,

I had same problem, at first I could not find out how to seperate the small silver cover with the on/off switch from the rest. After removing the 3 torx screws, 1 at the power entrance, and 2 under the shaver blade. You can remove the black cover. I also removed 2 more torx screws to separate the battery, from the rest, (don't know if thats really necessary). The silver covers are 'clicked' into eachother. When lifted the part where the battery part was screwed into, the silver parts became partly seperated, then you can pull the part apart.
I cleaned/washed the trimmer part with wd40 contact spray.
Assembled the parts, and made sure that the little plastic nodge was came into the trimmer.
Cleaned it all (removed leaking wd 40) and works fine again.
Hopefully this is helpfull to anyone.

Goodluck,
Adrian
