You can buy a replacement shaver head and screens from an Oklahoma shaver business, electric shaver company.
Here's a link to their site and the page for the Norelco shaver you're looking to get parts for. The 3rd item down is the shaver head and screens, blades, etc.
I don't think you can get just the plastic retainer all by itself, as the manufacturer makes a complete head and blade as a replacement set, however, you can call them to see if they have just the retainer part you need. But frankly, it's likely a good idea to change shaver heads every so often to get the best shave, etc., so you might just want to spring for the complete replacement assembly part #HQ9 on this site for under $40.00.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hi REDLACQUER. Sorry to hear about the metal shavings. This is probably not to best way to take iron in your diet... My first thought would be to ask if your mixer is still under warranty. If you’ve had the machine less than one year, then I’d let KA replace your mixer with a new one. However, I suspect like many who seek assistance from FIXYA.com, your mixer is out of warranty, so what can you do?
Have you been able to find exactly where the metal shavings are originating? From the symptoms you describe, it appears that the planetary/agitator shaft assembly may be rubbing against its housing and generating the metal shavings at higher speeds. Have you noticed any increased noise levels/squeaking/screeching when the planetary rotates? It’s also possible that the planetary is out of alignment and not rotating true. Could the agitator shaft been jarred or hit hard during set up or moving in or out of you storage cabinet? Or the shavings could be symptomatic of other internal gear problems, but that would be the least likely scenario as the mixers internal gears are pretty much self-contained.
The good news is that this can be troubleshot and fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, and feel adventurous. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, KP2671, and select the last file, KP2671XWH3.pdf (325.07 KB) listed under Parts List (24) (check to verify that it matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled “Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit”, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. I suspect your Planetary Assembly, Illus No. 15, is rubbing somewhere against its housing, Lower Gearcase, Illus. No. 24.
To gain access to these pieces you’ll need the following tools: a regular or Phillips screw driver, retaining clip pliers, and a small drift pin punch and a small hammer. You need to remove the Transmission Housing (Illus No. 7) and remove all the lubricating grease from the transmission housing and gears (when removing the grease be on the lookout for shavings in the grease which would indicate excessive gear wear). This will allow you to remove Illus No. 25, 21, 18 & 19, Retaining Clip, Bevel Gear, Retaining Pin and Worm Gear Follower, respectively.
Once you remove the Retaining Pin (Illus. No. 18) the Planetary Assembly can be tapped down through the Lower Gearcase Assembly (Illus. No 24). With the Planetary removed, you can inspect it and the inside of the Lower Gearcase to determine where the shavings originated. Be sure to look closely at the Planetary Gear in the lower gearcase as well as the Agitator Shaft Pinion Gear (Illus. No. 12). That will also identify what parts need to be replaced, which you can order online.
You’ll need to replace the grease you removed with new grease. You should use a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Do not try to reuse any original grease as it may have ‘debris’ in it.
Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hi,unfortunately there is no way to reset this counter,even after replacing battery it still stands there.Braun somehow prohibits user and/or unauthorized repair men to do such action.If you visit the following link there is a official statement by Braun states that" total number of shaves (cannot be reset)."
I am sorry,this is the fact.

No!! it's a terrible idea to shave the hair on your upper lip. It will just grow back stubbly. You can either bleach it or have it removed permanently with electrolysis or laser treatments.

1. Make sure
you use a moisturizer before you start shaving
2. Pull the
skin tight to create tension.
3. Shave in
the direction that the hair grows
4. If you have a beach or pool day out, make sure you shave the night before to avoid rashes and irritation from shaving.

In order to properly care your skin, you should use a pre-shave lotion after you done shaving. First you should rinse your face with warm water then cool water. Then, you need to par your face dry and apply an after shave balm to smooth your skin.

If your switching to electric shaver or it is the first time you shave you will need to give your face three weeks to adjust to electric shavers. Try not to fluctuate back and forth between blade shaving and electric shaving during the first three weeks.
