How do I clean the Norelco RQ 10 head? I have been putting it under the tap but it doesn't seem to clean out the whiskers and it gets plugged. I tried soaking but to no avail.

This type of head does not disassemble like the older types. This makes it virtually impossible to clean thoroughly.
Try soaking it in rubbing alcohol. This may loosen it up enough to clean it out fairly well. If this does not do the trick, you will have no other option but to purchase a replacement head.
You will find this replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Petrol strimmer keeps needing new spark plugs


There is very little to go wrong with a newish spark plug, so it is either getting to hot ans whiskering the plug gap ( the plug will look very white around the electrode and a tiny whisker will bridge the gap ) or the porcelain insulator on the plug electrode has suffered carbon fouling due to the engine running too rich, in which case just clean the plug so as the porcelaine is white again.

You are problable correct in thinking that the blades are clogged up. Unfortunately, you are also correct about the terrible design. The blades on Arcitec models can not be removed from the head assembly for cleaning

complaints can be made to Noreclo at 1-800-243-3050

Replacement head assembly can be purchase from shaveroutlet.com. See link below

I installed 3 new heads but the shaver just is not shaving off my 5 day old beard... It's battery seems fine as the motor seems to be running at normal speed. Confused Carl


Your Norelco shaver is not designed for cutting 5 days of growth. Your shaver is designed for cutting one, maybe two days of growth only. Use the trimmer on the back to cut the whiskers to a shorter stubble. Then the hairs will more effectively poke through the holes and slots in the combs allowing the blades to shave them as designed.

Arcitec razor 1050X will not cut whiskers reagardless of length, weather I shave every day or wait a few days. I must resort to using a twenty year old Norelco with old heads that still shaves much better...


You are certainly not th first person who hasn't been happy with the Arcitec model. If it never worked well for you from the beginning, there is nothing that will make it work now. It's a shame that you've waited past the 45 day return period.
Your old shaver, 6885XL, was a "Quadra" model. These were a popular model type that is now discontinued. If you still have it, it may be able to be repaired. If you would like to replace it with another Quadr model, you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

This model is virtually identical to your 6885XL except that it is a newer version

I have a Norelco model 7315 razor that I purchased in October 2009. In the last five weeks, in spite of being cleaned regularly, it developed a very unpleasant must odor that seems to emanate from the body...


It is very unlikely that the smell is coming from the body of the shaver. Have you completely removed the heads and thoroughly cleaned them individually with alcohol or shaver cleaner? If you are simply rinsing the blades under the faucet and have not removed them and thoroughly cleaned them, this is almost certainly the problem. The smell is decomposing hair and oils from your skin.

You may want to consider using a shaver cleaning product like the ones linked below from shaveroutlet.com

How i clean my razor


I have this razor as well. Just flip the heads open, dump the hairs in the garbage and rinse the heads (while open) under hot water. Keep the heads open until dry and close on up.
