    How do I open the razor?

  • smc4991 May 30, 2011

    The solution was very helpful. I did have to go the the hardware store to purchase special screwdrivers to open the razor. Also, I did have to plug in the razor after cleaning if before it would turn on.
    Thank you.

Hi,

Take the razor apart .First remove the foils, then the blades. Pull them up after unbolting 6 screws. There are two screws to remove where the head rotates. Then after removing the head, there are two more screws under the head. You will find two more screws on the bottom under the plastic caps beside the charging terminal. Now slide the razors hardware efficiently and carefully out of the case by pulling up from the head mounting arms while holding the case as you normally do while shaving.

After the circuit board is exposed, gently clean it with small amount of alcohol and q-tips, make sure nothing gets stuck on the components of the board like cotton or cotton threads .You can also examine if the motor is not burnt out and the batteries are charged up by placing a flathead screwdriver between the positive terminal of the battery and the motor. It should come on if the motor and batteries are good. Now reverse the procedure carefully to reassemble the razor. After tht press the reset button of the razor at the bottom-front, and check if it comes on using the on/off button.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Why won't my Roomba start when I press a green "clean" button?


Bad PC board. Throw it away. Robot vacs are nothing more than novelties ( expensive toys ) They may do what you want them to do at first but they never last very long and other than brush replacements they are not repairable. If it is within the warranty period you can get a replacement with that.

Braun 8995 - YELLOW LIGHT STAYS ON!


I experienced the same symptoms on my 8995; solid yellow light (even though the cartridge was full), cleaning failed (red light on) after pressing either start button. After many failed attempts to clean the razor, unplugging the station and pushing start button, I decided to clean the razor under running water. I rinsed the razor under water and then turned it on allowing it to run in a pool of water (like it would in the station). After water cleaning, I returned the razor to the station, pressed the start button and it worked! Was able to do both the quick clean and auto clean.

prepare machine for use first.

the yellow or yellow and white wires have come apart under tank simply remove tank follow the wires from right hand switch block should be a black connection block and yellow and yellow and white wires are the old type bullet connectors check for corrosion green deposits reconnect wires yellow to yellow and yellow/white to yellow/white id use some electrical tape to insulate further also helps to stop them working loose again when handle bars are turned switch on the ignition b4 putting tank back on press start button it will start trust me lol

Brand new razor.. one clean and then...


Had the same problem. The cleaning light was flashing faster than the charge light. I pressed the on/off button twice in quick succession and the cleaning cycle started normally and the lights began flashing together. Don't know why I had to press the button again, but it did the trick.
