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 wateror 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

I have found using a small sonic cleaner, which we also use to clean jewelry, glasses and other small items, cleans the shaver head quite nicely. About $15-20 for a sonic cleaner, well worth the money and very useful.

I have a kenmore elite HE3 washer. I was getting the sud error and then eventually F02. I cleaned out all the drain lines and pump filter trap and this did not help. I've now replaced the pump


I endevor to purchase a new unit. I've had the same electrical issue with the "F" variable coming up for EACH cycle. I've pressed the Pause/Cancel button and attempted to resume the cycle. While that did work, again, the "F" would come up and the cycle disrupted. I think I will end up paying quite a bit to have it serviced. My washer is 7 years old and I've had it serviced twice to date. I intend on purchasing new in the New Year, a Samsung or LG.

It is three and a half years old and ices up even at warm temps.


The problem you're having is generally caused by the air intake filter needing to be removed and cleaned and/or the cooling coils need to be cleaned.

I assume you already know how to remove and clean the filter, since you've had the unit for 3 1/2 years, so I won't bore you by addressing that.

The coils can be cleaned with warm water and a mild dish washing detergent using a sponge or rag. Once they have been wiped down, rinsed and dried, apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hello, Re: frontloading washer Model C45172 Our washer has been operating withiout hitch since purchase about five years ago, We love it. Today I tried to program it to do an extra rinse after wash...


For the Elite (HE) machines:

Press 'STOP' twice, press 'POWER', choose a wash cycle (such as 'NORMAL'), select wash options (water temp), press 'START' to finish the reset sequence.

Other Kemore electronic washers:

Unplug the machine for a minute, plug it in. Press 'PAUSE/CANCEL' twice.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

How many times can I use one blade?


This depends greatly on the individual and the thickness or coarseness of the hair. Some prefer to change a blade after using it once or twice, others after 3 or 4 times while many expect between 5 to 7 uses.

The key is to change it regularly and always use a sharp blade. If you feel it dragging on your skin it's time to change it!

I've purchased new blades for my Arctic. they did fine until they got clogged. what can i do to clean my blades? this IS a problem. if i can't find a solution i can't purchase norelco again. please...


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.

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

Wont drian water


First, obviously, check that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Then, remove the hose from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. It sounds nasty, but I generally blow through the hose to check for any clogs. Yuck! LOL Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional lost sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure no blades on the impeller are missing or broken and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if the impeller won't turn freely, the pump is defective and will have to be replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged drain line or pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Won't start, has "varnish" from fuel


Does it have a fuel pump or is it gravity fed? If gravity fed, when you rebuilt the carb, did you make sure that the main (power) jet orifice was totally clean? No varnish or residue in the hole. Pressurized air or carb cleaner spray into the jet is a good way to test flow restrictions. It sounds like a clogged main jet or a vacuum leak at the carb to manifold gasket. You might want to flush the gas tank and replace the gas cap also, as evaporating fuel over time will leave behind varnish deposits if the cap doesn't seal, even though it is a vented cap.

Vacuum seems to have a problem


Take off the bottom plate and check the inlet to see if it is clogged and make sure the belt is ok. If no clog there, then it is in the hose. If you can't figure it out and is less then 1 year old, then it is under warranty, take it in for repair along with your proff of purchase.
