It's a hack, but you can use needle nose plyers to let you pry open those razor blade heads to clean the blades inside the heads. My Arcitec shaver stopped working after being clogged, rather than pay $50 for new blades, I just opened it up, took out the blades and cleaned it with an old toothbrush and soap.

This is a major problem with Arcitec shavers. You and thousands of other have found out too late that the blades can not be removed for manual cleaning. Unfortunately, there is no good solution. You can try running the shaver under hot water or running the shaver with the heads dipped in rubbing alcol. You can also try picking out the 'gunk' with a toothpick. You will probably only find these to provide minimal results.

If you find that you still must replace the heads, you will fin tham at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

When I engage the blades then cutting grass, the engine starts to run rough. Disengage blades runs fine.


Carb may need adjusted a little if engine is sputtering. Governor spring etc. May have a clogged fuel line or carb.(had that to happen to me when gov. kicked in not enough gas flow to run smoothly). New plug? Air filter clean? Fresh gas? (not questioning your experience but adds up). If engine is missing, may need these things. If it only does this when blades engaged and does not do it climbing a hill or something else putting a load on engine try the next thing. Hope it is not a bearing on the deck but check that out by turning OFF the engine, and turn blades by hand and see if a bearing may be going bad. PLEASE, DISCONNECT THE SPARK PLUG BEFORE DOING THIS or you may need an ambulance also... lol.. Just some ideas to kick around until I think about it a little bit more. Also, most on here would like to see the make and model and engine name and horse power.. that would help too. Thanks for asking. Good Luck.

Loss of power when blades engaded.


Remove deck belt from blade pulleys and Tri to spin blades by hand. If they don't spin freely, you probably need new spindle bearings but if you do need a new spindle I would replace the whole spindle housing... Just make sure the one (s) you buy has housing, spindle, bearings, nut and washer.

I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I...


If the motor is running, there should be suction. Possible problems depend on whether it's a canister or upright and are:
A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.

A reset button is for use if the motor isn't running, so won't have anything to do with the suction.

When i turn on my shaver it just hums. no cutting sound.


Possible that the blades are clogged with hair or dirt and the motor is jammed . Use the fine brush that had come along with the shaver to clean and free the blades, Use some light oil on the blades to free any signs of dirt or rust on the blade set.
After shaving it is important to clean and keep the blades dry.

Have You Checked The Fan/Heatsink Assembly???

Your Heatsink Cooling Fins Might Be Clogged

If So, The Fan Blades, The Heatsink Fins And Assembly Need To Be Cleaned Thouroughly... DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR

You Must Disassemble Laptop And Physically Clean these parts

It would be a good idea at this point to also add new Arctic Silver Thermal Paste or Thermal Pads To The CPU/GPU..

How do I replace the Cleaning Brush for the drum?????


why in the world are you replaceing the brush? In 25 years of copiers, i,ve never had to replce a brush. If its streaking on the copy, its the blade thats bad. only reason to replace a brush is if its broke,cause of a clog. just vacumm it out.
