Amazon has the Shaver Head Holder for $14.69 and the Retaining Plate for $6.99. You will see the spring clip on the new head holder that pushes into the shaver body; you'll want to push the old one down gently with a thin flat tool to pull the head off.

Norelco 8100 Series Motor/Drive/Gear Assembly


The gear tips are not available from the manufacturer. You will have to replace the whole assembly. Your other option is to but a used model of the same type off of ebay and take the gear stems off of it.

Will not charge.


Batteries need replaced. You will find the correct battery type for model 8883XL at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

To replace, you will need to remove the back cover by removing the two screws. You may need to extend the long hair trimmer to get to the second screw. Take off back cover to access inside. You can unsolder the batteries from the circuit board but for easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries with small needle nose pliers rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

If you are not able to do this yourself, you can have shaveroutlet.com do it for you. See link below

It sounds like you need a new "head holder". These often wear out over time and fall apart. You will find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

The unit should be sent into the manufacturer for a complete review.
