Makes buzzing sound after cleaning blades
I keep the blades clean. Really clean. I'm a smoker, and you would not believe the crud that accumulates on those "blades"... <g>
First, I spray the blades with "PurplePower" cleaner/degreaser (from AutoZone), then I wipe them down with a sponge, then rinse with hot water. then dry them with compressed air (I have a compressor...).
FWIW, "Windex" works pretty good too, but... the degreaser really works well on the cigarette "residue"..
Second, there are two long wires inside that also have to be cleaned, periodically.
If your unit has the "pull-tab" cleaner, use it. One of my units has it. The other two don't.
On the ones that don't have the built-in cleaner, I stick a chopstick in through the rear vents, and CAREFULLY rub it against the sides of those wires, which "scrapes" the "white crud" off of the wires. Take your time. You will likely have to "change locations" several times in order to access the full length of both wires.
NOTE: those wires are fairly durable, but BE CAREFUL with them.
Either way, after cleaning the wires, I then "blow" the unit clean with compressed air.
Voila! No more buzzing. Until the next time the wires get "crudded up".
