Pry out the blue button. In the oval hole where the button was you will see a thin metallic part (semi-circular shapes on each side); pull it out through the hole and the switch will be functional.

    This is listed as the "best solution"...
    it's actually the ONLY solution!
    Now I know what to ask for this Christmas but at least I'll be able to shave until then.

My Silk Epil 7 has stopped working, the epillator head has stopped rotating. I doubt that some hair has got stuck inside. Could ypu please help?

My Braun worked fine the last time I used it & would not come on when I tried it today. Worked on it & found it to be jammed with hair. Would not rotate. Scrubbed it with a toothbrush, started digging out the hair, forced it to rotate, scrubbed it some more, & rotated it some more. The more I worked with it the more hair kept coming out. It's rotating fine now. I think I'm going to clean it with my water pik. My Braun is the kind that can be used with water & the top part comes off. Haven't used it yet but I think I have fixed it. Wish I could get it apart to clean it out but the head of the screw is strange & I don't have anything that will turn it.

Switch will not change between on and off. It is stuck in the on position.

Please mention the product/device so that we have an idea. It can be that the switch is stuck up and is faulty or that there is obstruction to the switch. Use some degreasing/cleaning spray on to the switch as you gently move if back and forth. this might clear the obstruction.

I have a sportcraft treadmill tx335 it shows error 7 why and how do i fix it

Error code seven is due to the console getting locked. I called Sportcraft and they said to do this: Unplug the treadmill for five min and then re-plug the treadmill. Now push the ON/OFF switch to ON and insert the safety key. Now press the MODE and STOP button simultaneously. Without releasing the buttons take out the safety key and insert it again. Now you should hear a beep and the display will come on. Release MODE & STOP and now press the Speed increment (+) button

Will not turn off

1. have a small screwdriver set

2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again

3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely

4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it

THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.


a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open

b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver

c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver

d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display

e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)

f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here

g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch

h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.

i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.

j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.

    Thanks ,very helpful. Let me just add a vital bit of information On removing front assembly, to remove sliding switch and access spring clip under blue button you have to release locking clip (it's like a long sprung piece of plastic) from LH side by just pushing it to the right with a fine screwdriver etc. It's concealed under another piece of plastic. I also removed inward facig lug on shaver body (under slider) as this snags the metal spring when refixed

I'm trying to figure out if my curling iron is compatible with the voltage in Spain & Italy. It states 125V/250V & has a "UL Listed" symbol on it.

hi yes it will be fine it clearly states it will work at 125 volts and 250 volts which 240 volts in uk and 120 in rest of europe all your going to need is the plug adapter so it fits into the plug sockets where ever your going.

so you will be ok, you wont be shocking any one,

it will work exactly the same as it would normally it has a reducer inside that reduces the power down from 250 to 120 so this will work in basically any country in the world, you could even run it off a generator. so you will have no problems

Model 5414 - on/off switch appears stuck - can't

there is likely a broken piece of plastic broken off on the back side of the switch and that loose piece is lodged in such a way as to not allow you to put the switch fully in the off position

to take it apart, you will need to remove the two screw covers at the bottom of the on each side of the AC port. remove screws undeneath to seperate fron and back. examine the backside of the switch for a loose piece.
once removed, the switch should work fine but it my move more freey than when it was new. this is because the broken piece you removed was a part that clicks and holds the switch into the on or off position

This problem can be caused by a malfunctioning printed circuit board inside the shaver. This usually can be fixed by fully discharging the battery then fully charging it or disconnecting the battery then reconnecting it (if possible, most shavers has their batteries soldered-in).

Panasonic 8077 cleaner stopped working

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} My model is almost the same as your model ...

Problem: Model ES7037
CMB - Over the past month the Panasonic shaver would turn on with 3-4 tries, but now will not turn on at all – the on-off switch must be bad after only 7 months of wet use. Before sending in I found this diagram:

Disassembly: Remove bottom Phillips screw & end cap, pop off each plastic side with fingernails (reinstall them from top 1st), remove 4 screws, remove 2 clips, take top off. Remove battery case and the on-off little, white plastic lever fell out. Slide off the white plastic/metal on-off slider & clean contacts with knife … my bottom contact was black & top was clean.

Assembly: Reinstall on-off slider (white plastic with metal contacts) by sliding back in grooves -- hardest part - place the on-off plastic lever on the battery back unit – I tried to put it on the case and could not get it to stay on. Slide the battery pack back in with the plug prongs in the holes in the end being careful not to drop the on-off lever. Test shaver. Stuff battery wires inside case – screw 4 screws and add 2 clips on, then final screw in the end after cap placed on. Easy once I knew how to put the on-off lever on the battery side – that was tricky. Total time was about 1 hour – next time it will be about 15 minutes. Works great! jgg
12-27-08. Think I will use it dry from now own since it had a lot of whiskers inside of it and maybe wash only the head as needed with baby shampoo.


YouTube pasted below:

Use that link to disassemble and clean the switch then put it back together.

All newer Panasonic Wet/Dry Shavers are probably the same.

Good Luck!
