Why do the plastic drive gears underneath the shaving head keep breaking off? Thisis the third Norelco 8140Xl this happened to.

If this is a repetitive problem for you, there must be a reason. Most likely, the blades are getting jammed and this is causing the tips of the gears to twist off. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you disassemble the shaver heads and thoroughly clean the teeth on a regular basis to prevent them from getting clogged solid. Also, make sure that you are protecting the delicate combs of the shaver head to prevent them from getting damaged. If the comb gets damaged, the teeth on the blade will lodge in it and this can cause the gear tip to break off.

You can replace thesebroken gears. You will find the required part at See link below

Not sure,but is the screen supposed to spin or not? 2 of the 3 blade screens spin,is that normal? Should they all spin,or should none of them spin? From what I can tell,all actual blades are spinning...

The combs (screens) should not spin. They need to be stationary so the hair can most effectively poke into the slots to be cut

If yours are spinng, either they are not put in correctly of they are damaged and need to be replaced. To check for damage, take them out and try to turn the blades inside the combs with your fingers. The blades should turn freely inside the combs. If they stick, they are damaged and need replaced.

I need a clipper guide comb for an Oster model 606B hair trimmer. Where can I buy one?

Buy one on e-bay. I have the same clipper and needed the guide combs, so I went out on a limb and bought the Oster combs that fit the 76 models. It says "universal" on them, and they fit my old 606B perfectly!

Cannot put blade assembly back together

Sounds strange, since I don't think that the HQ5 heads in the shaver have the pointy parts that other shaver heads have. If your comb has 2 pointy edges, make sure they are located correctly in the head housing - they will need to be located inwards, with the the spindle that the retaining bracket attaches to in the center of the the two pointy parts.

But apart from placing the combs in first, locating the cutters in then putting the retaining bracket in (which may be broken if it won't fasten properly) I'm not sure what you can do, other than calling your local Philips Service Centre,

Norelco shaver, 7310XL will not run with the headsdown in place- will run if open? The shaver is charged and all the heads are in place but when you close the heads down on the shaver - locked down...

Make sure that the comb and cutters have been dismantled and cleaned thoroughly. If they are jammed up with hair they won't work. Also check the surface of the comb and make sure there are no bumps or dents that will stop the head rotating.
