I had this same issue with my shaver and tried the method suggested without any affect. I then looked at the underside of the razor cradle and discovered two philips screws. I removed them and and a plastic cover comes off to expose the fluid sensor. The sensor has two wires leading into a molded assembly. I noticed that mine had a couple of cracks and one caused a piece of the material to fall off. I could now see a piece of metal underneath. I cleaned the sensor with water to remove all cleaning solution and then dried it with a hair dryer. I searched for something to seal the sensor and found some touchup paint for my car. I used it to paint and seal the visible surface of the molded sensor. I re-assembled the unit and let it dry. Everything worked fine after that.

SOURCE: Norelco Electric Razor problem: Jet Clean System won't work

I have had 3 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

SOURCE: how i clean my razor

I have this razor as well. Just flip the heads open, dump the hairs in the garbage and rinse the heads (while open) under hot water. Keep the heads open until dry and close on up.

SOURCE: How do I clean the head of the Arcitec razor?

there is no really good way to clean these because you can not remove the blades from the combs on the Arcitec models. The best thing to do is run the shaver heads in a dish of rubbing alcohol for a minute or two once in a while.
If you find it impossible to clean them thoroughly, you will need to replace them. Replacements can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com

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.

Cleaning the blades of my Electric razor


The smell that you are noticing is a mixture of decomposing skin particles, skin oil and hair. This is because you are not getting the blades clean enough.
Philips (Norelco) has been introducing all of their shaver with the ability to clean them with water, however, this is not a very good way to clean them because the oil in your skin that collects on the blades does not easily clean out with water. If you must clean with water, make sure the water is as hot as will come out of your faucet. A better way to clean it is with rubbing alcohol because it works better and will help kill germs which may cause smell.
Of course, the best way to clean the shaver heads is to remove them individually and brush them out thoroughly. However, Philips made it impossible to remove the blades on the Arcitec models. The Arcitec modelsare simply designed very poorly for cleaning.

If you are unable to thoroughly clean the heads, you may elect to replace them. It is suggested that they be changed every 12 months. You will find replacement heads at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Self clean not working, razor just raises out of solution


I cant say that this is the problem sor sure but the cleaning unit will do what you describe if the cleaning solution levelis too low. You may just need to add fluid to it.
