Question about Remington MS-5100 Electric Shaver
The trimmer won't stay locked down while shaving. Is there an easy fix that I can do to correct this problem?
I can only comment genericaly for this:
Most likely the internal drive shaft is defective. In some models there is a gear box. This may not be coupling correcty due to a failure. In any of these cases it will most likely need replacement parts to be reliable again. Your shaver should never fall apart!
You can call the company and enquire about where to send the shaver for service. Some of these companies have a flat rate fee for service. Look for your reciept to see if it is possibly under warranty. If the estimate for repair is too high, then you should consider a new shaver.
I would suggest for you to try getting a higher end type model. From personal experience and the research that I have done in the past, I found the Philips and the Panasonic to probably be the best shavers around at this time. You may pay a little more, but they are worth the few exra dollars for the performance and reliablity.

Make sure you are using the trimmer with the shaving heads on the shaver. With heads removed, the trimmer on the back will not work properly. If thats not the problem, the trimmer is broken or jammed. clen the blades really well with a toothbrush and rubbing alcohol. If they're jammed, this will probably free them up. If that doesnt do it, the trimmer is probably broken and that part is no longer available from Remington. If you really like this model, you can find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com

Latch inside is broken. This mkes it difficult to use the shaver. You cant fix it to work properly but you can super glue it down if you just want to use the shaver.
Another alternative is to replace the handle portion. This is available at shaveroutlet.com

You should try detaching the head of the shaver and cleaning it thoroughly.
You should then try oiling it with the oil that came with it, or any lubricating oil that is safe with metals.
Let me know if this helps!
