The trimmer on my Braun 1775 FreeControl shaver has stopped working. When it is engaged, the pitch (sound) of the shaver changes in the usual way with the usual increase in vibration. However the trimmer...


The trimmer is either broken or clogged up with a combination of shavings and skin oil. If it is broken, there are no replacements available. If it is clogged, you can fix it by thoroughly cleaning it. Dip the blades of the trimmer into some rubbing alcohol or other mild solvent type liquid. Soak it for about one minute. Then take an old toothbrush and firmly scrub the teeth. Then turn it on and it should free it up. If it still doesn't move you can advance the blade manually to get it 'unstuck'. One of the blades is fix and the other moves back and forth. You should be able to see which one is supposed to move by sight. Take a small flat screwdriver or similar object and push the blade to each side once. Turn it on and it should move freely. Dip the trimmer blades back in the rubbing alcohol while it is running and let it run for about 15 seconds.
If still not working it is beyond repair. The easiest and least expensive way to get working again would be to purchase a new ;lower unit' which includes the trimmer. You will find at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

The engine starts up and runs perfectly but the blades are not molving.


Check the gearbox for lubrication, if it hasn't gotten any grase for a long time the bearings may have failed.
If you feel adventurous remove the bottom cover and look, there should be a bearing at the motor output, and at the blade connection, the bar that connects the two and makes that back and forth action should be connected to both ends.

Blades not moving on ss24 weedeater


I just disassembled a SS24 hedge trimmer that had the same problem of the blades not moving. The problem is that there are 2 or 3 teeth on the helical gear that are missing. Consequently, the small gear on the motor shaft cannot continuously engage the gear that moves the blades back and forth.

Sideburn trimmer does not cut anymore but still makes noise. trimmer blade does not move.


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
