SOURCE: conair beard trimmer: took screw out and can't

After removing the screw you must place your thumb on the battery cover (just below the screw where the 5 raised lines are) and slide the cover downward. The battery in this unit is soldered in. You may have to take it to a repair center to get the battery changed. The battery is a D-Sc type 1600mAh 1.2V. Good luck finding one. I thought the battery in my trimmer was bad after it sat idle for about 8 years. Turns out a little light sewing machine oil on the cutter head made it spring back to life.

SOURCE: How to open case on Norelco T-3000 beard trimmer

Remove the bottom screw. Next, the on/off slide switch has to be lifted off carefully with a small flat screw driver. Its kept in place with a small spring steel clamp. After you've removed it lift off the steel clamp and remove the slide mechanism by carefully twisting it out of position. Once that's done it will twist open easily.

Switch accessories on the wahl 9876l


Cradle the trimmer in your hand, and use your thumb to push the blade assembly out / away from the trimmer. To install any of the attachments, hook the white nylon hook on the blade assembly into the notch on the bottom of the trimmer, and snap the blade into the trimmer.

The trimming blades of my Shaver do not work. my hair got stuck in it. It seem the blades do not move across each other.


Assuming you have cleaned and lubed the blades, then you need to dismantle requiring a torx screwdriver.
Firstly, take off the top cover and remove the foil itself. There are two torx screws there, and another one where the power charger goes in at the bottom.
Once those 3 are removed, pull apart the main black/grey sections. There are 2 more screws holding the battery in place, remove them and the battery. Next bit is tricky - where the 2 grey 'dimples' are, gently loosen the two sections which should leave the black slider holding the trimmer and just one side of the grey outer shell. It felt to me it was going to break, but came apart without issue.
I couldn't work out how to seperate the black trimmer section here, but you can buy replacement trimmer sections so assuming it's possible somehow. From here, I cleaned, and soaked the blades with lube overnight. Then put back together again.

I have a Conair GMT189CGB 13 piece styling trimmer how do I change the nose/ear trimmer? I have no idea how it snaps in? what a terrible design!


You do not need to unscrew anything. Instead, simply take the beard trimmer (with the beard shaving blade still screwed on) in your hand, with the power button and "CONAIR" logo facing you. Then, put your thumb under the shaving blade and apply force to pop it off. So, the shaving blade, and the top part of the unit that it's screwed into will simply pop off. Then, you simply align the nose/ear hair attachment, and snap it in to the beard trimmer unit.

The trimmer is not cutting the way it should, the bottom blade seems out of place and I cannot put it back in place


Conair trimmers are only good for about a year and they are hard to put back once you have messed with them. does your blade pop off or does it have two phillips screws holding it in? If you take the blade off completely you should see two arms that are in there, you have to place the blades back on correctly and hold them together while putting the screws back in. be very careful not to tighten the screws too much. Oil your blades with 3-1 oil and then turn them on. adjust the trimmer and see if everything is level, if it is try cutting withem and see what happens. If the motor sounds good but the blades are pulling your hair rather then cutting it then you need to replace your trimmers because your blades are daul.

I am having problem taking the back off my R-9500 Electric Shaver, I removed 2 screws, one at the bottom & other near button for trimmer. I have pushed the the trimmer button up to open the trimmer,...


The third screw is hard to see. To access it, you will need to remove the trimmer from the point that it pivots out from the shaver. Use a small flat screwdriver to gently pry the small plastic pegs from their corresponding sockets on the shaver body.

I have a Philips Norelco ear/nose hair trimmer. It stopped


Philips Norelco Nose and Ear Trimmer you need to clean it if it stops. Take the battery out run water over the the head and brush till clean. It then should work. It should be cleaned after each use by running water over the head so that does not clog up with hair and dirt.
