Yes, after you push the start button on the unit, pull the plug out of the wall socket when the arm gets to its bottom position. It will stop at this lowered position. When you plug it in again, it will go back to its upright position. Norelco ships the new cleaning units in this contracted position. When you plug it in presto! You are ready to go.

How do i clean my with my philips hq2000. instructions are in a different langue

  • 1 Set the Jet Clean System base on a flat surface and pull the cleaning reservoir out of the base.
  • 2 Unscrew the fill cap on the reservoir, pour Jet Clean Solution into the reservoir and replace the reservoir in the base.
  • 3 Plug the power cord of the cleaning base into and electrical outlet.
  • 4 Remove the protective cover on the razor head and place it to the side. The protective cover must be removed or the cleaning system will not work.
  • 5 Slide the razor head into the base, push back on the razor handle and press the locking lever down to keep it in place. The indicator light on the cleaning base will blink, indicating the razor is inserted properly and charging.
  • 6 Press the "On/Off" button on the side of the cleaning base. The razor will lower into the cleaning solution and begin the cleaning process, which takes approximately one hour. The razor will rise out of the cleaning solution when the cleaning process is complete.
  • 7 Lift up on the locking lever, remove the razor from the cleaning base and rinse the razor heads under warm water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. The razor is now clean and ready for use.

  • If you just have the solution and not the Jet Clean System, then I would presume you could soak just the heads in the solution to clean them and then rinse it off.

    Improving Dishwasher Performance

    If your dishwasher is not getting your items as clean as you'd like, the problem might be in your sprayer arm jets. The jets are the small openings in each of the sprayer arms. Sometimes the food grinder doesn't adequately remove all the food particles and other debris and this is pumped into the sprayer arms. You'll need to remove the arms (usually just a simple removal of a wing nut) and flush them with a strong jet of water from your faucet or the sink sprayer. I've sometimes found pieces of paper from fresh produce, small bits of plastic or bone fragments, and larger pieces of food inside the jets. A tweezer will help you remove these from the jets, thereby opening them so that the water can again be forced through them. A wooden toothpick can also be helpful cleaning the jets.

    Engine speed surges up and down


    First check for the obvious... fresh fuel? clean air filter? carburetor mounting bolts/nuts tight? cylinder head bolts tight? crank case bolts/nuts tight?

    Now to adjust the governor:
    Find where the governor shaft comes out of the engine... loosen the nut and bolt on the governor arm clamp (where the governor arm clamps to the governor shaft). Gently pull the governor arm back until it stops, Gently turn the governor shaft the same way (some have a slot for a screwdriver or a hex-head for a nut driver to hold the shaft at it's closed position) as you pull the governor arm. Both the arm and the shaft must be at their full stop of travel while you tighten the governor arm clamp. It may take another person to lend a hand to keep the governor arm at the closed position while you tighten the clamp.

    I have a ge quietpower 3 dishwasher. Lately it has stopped cleaning the dishes. Sometimes the dispenser tray doesn't open. Sometimes it does open and the soap pac hasn't disolved.

    Make sure your water temperature is hot enough to dissolve the soap. Generally, the water temp. should be 140 degrees. Run some hot water at the tap before you turn on the dishwasher. This will assure that hot water is in the dishwasher as soon as you start it. Be certain that there aren't any large pieces in front of the dispenser tray. Sometimes casserole dishes, frying pans or baking pans can block the door and prevent it from opening.
    Also, the sprayer arms might be clogged with bone fragments, peelings, bits of paper, etc. If this is the case, you'll need to remove the sprayer arm, flush and then check the jets. If you see "stuff" in the jets, they can be remove with tweezers.
    Finally, make sure the upper sprayer arm hose is securely seated with the tube in the back of the dishwasher that carries the water up to the sprayer arm hose. If these two are not seated correctly, the water will not travel into the sprayer arm hose, the sprayer arm will not turn and your dishes will not get clean! I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

    The dishes on the top rack are not cleaning at all. The sprayer arm is not rotating. The jets are all clear of debris. And of course, warranty just out.


    Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

    under the screen and youl'll need a Torx driver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

    Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

    Lost directions on how to use jet clean system. Do not know how to use it.

    Visit this site below and enter your product number. If you don't have your product number or it doesn't appear, then type in "jet clean" then scroll down and click on personal care. You can then click on a jet clean model and then open the .pdf of the manual. The instructions should be similar. There is nothing to using it. Fill the reservoir with jet clean solution to the max line. Put the shaver in the cradle heads down and press the button on the front of the cleaning base. If it doesn't stay down and clean you may have another problem. If so, then search "Norelco Arcitec Electric Shaver with Jet Clean" on this site and you can find answers to your problems.

    My maytag will not clean the dishes. I have cleaned out the water tubes, I have checked the hot water. all it does when you run a cycle it leaves the dishes dry and the detergent is not being used.

    Most likely causes are:

    Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)

    Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.

    New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.

    Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.

    If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.

    Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.

    Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.

    Hope this help. Good luck.
