Question about Norelco Arcitec Electric Shaver - Gray/Black

1 Answer

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 then this new Artitec. Previous razor was a Norelco 6885XL that wore out and worked great. Heads are cleaned on Arcitec and shave was never good from day one. I stuck with it and the 45 day period passed me by. Are there any adjustments that can be made to this razor or is this just one that was defective? I would like a razor that shaves as well as my older 688XL but I cannot tell which model is most similar. Any help would be appreciated.

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

What is an electric shaver?


Not like shaving razors, electric shavers work by shearing the whiskers, the hair enters the perforated metal heads of the shaver and is cut by the moving blade inside.

How should I treat a razor burn?


To treat razor burns, look for a soothing after-shave balm. Avoid alcohol-based aftershaves. You may also want to avoid shaving for a few days in order to let the skin heal itself.

Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the shaver is working as it should. If the hair you are attempting to shaver is longer than 1 days growth, you will need to trim it down to stubble length for the shaver to be able to cut it properly

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.

What does a flashing red light at bottom of display when you turn razor off mean looks lit the 3 rotary blades


It means they want you to buy a new shaver head. U dont need too, and the light will automatically go off after 7 shaves from when it first came on.

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.
