Probably a whole bunch muck is inside theyre (science Project ewe), are you sure you want to open it up? ok... there should some screws underneath the plastic covering but you will need to kind of rip that off and reapply some sticky appoxy after.

    thanx celatino anyways but my problem is where the hell these screws r hiding???

    Just had the same problem. I solved it by removing the epilation head and dropping a very small amount of oil on either side of the white plastic rotating wheel (on top of the main unit)
    It is also worth cleaning the epilation heads and dropping a small amount of oil either side of these, towards the edge. (not the metal tweezers).

Silk Epil 5376 Rotators are too slow and it doesn't work like it used to. When you take the head off the spinner spins fast but when you put the head back on it is slow and then the tweezing heads do...

You will need a star-shaped bit to remove the 2 screws. I would imagine they’re metric as it’s made in Germany. Barring that, a small flat head screwdriver used for eyeglasses will work. Remove the screws over a bucket or something so you don’t lose them, because they’re specific to the SilkEpil and can’t be bought at the hardware store.

When you remove the screws and take it apart, you’ll see the gears inside are clogged with hair. The flaw with the design is that the gear mechanism will suck in a few hairs every time you use it, which build up over time.

Remove the gear unit and use tweezers to pull out all the hair. You can rotate the gears to get it all. On the underside of the tweezer section, there’s a little recessed gear that’s probably clogged with hair too. Rotate the tweezer barrel to turn the little gear, and pull out the hair.

Give everything a good rinse, put it back together, and let it dry overnight. Presto, good as new!

I plan on doing this once a year as regular maintenance.

I called Braun at1-800-BRAUN-11 (1-800-272-8611) and learned that you may need to remove the head and replace it. If that doesn't work, it may need servicing. Hope this help!
