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.

Red light at bottom flashes even when razor ids fully charged. What can causrethis?


When the battery is almost empty (when there are only 5 or fewer shaving minutes left), the battery symbol lights up red.

Make sure that the battery does not have a memory effect. What I suggest is taking the shaving head unit off and running the shaver till empty, then recharging. Check if the red light is still flashing.

There's also a head indicator at the bottom of some shavers.

To remind you to replace the shaving unit, the shaving unit symbol flashes (all types) and you hear a beep when you switch off the shaver (RQ1090 only). This happens at the end of 7 successive shaves to remind you to replace the shaving unit.

Without knowing what model you have it's difficult to diagnose further.

Plastic retainer for the shaving blades is broken


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.
