Question about Norelco Reflex 5811 XL Electric Shaver
Norelco 5811 XL. The trimmer attachment doesn't work. When I open the trimmer I can see that plastic mechanism is moving back and forth like I think it should be, but there is something wrong with transferring that motion up to the metal trimmer itself. Ideas please.
There's a post inside the trimmer that provides a location for counterforce when the teeth move; this is either weak, designed to break after time, or breaks simply because it's not designed to be opened/closed while running. It's relatively easy--if you're patient--to take the razor/trimmer apart and see the problem. A friend and I drilled an appropriately-sized hole through the back of the trimmer at the snapped-post location (which, if one looks at the outside casing of the trimmer is at the bottom of the indented arc), used a dremel tool to cut off an appropriately-sized metal rod, inserted it in the hole, then sealed it with hard (probably model) putty. Years later, it still works fine and--most importantly--I didn't have to buy a new razor.
