First when you remove the clipper blade did you notice a plastic part 1" long color gray, if you have lose this part your clipper blade not work. This is call a blade guide. Clipper blade installation, Place Plastic guide on spring,2 place cutter blade on guide,(this is the smaller blade) now hold cutter blade with two fingers now place comb blade on top of cutter blade (this is the bigger blade) replace screws while holding blades in place.

SOURCE: Cannot put blade assembly back together

Sounds strange, since I don't think that the HQ5 heads in the shaver have the pointy parts that other shaver heads have. If your comb has 2 pointy edges, make sure they are located correctly in the head housing - they will need to be located inwards, with the the spindle that the retaining bracket attaches to in the center of the the two pointy parts.

But apart from placing the combs in first, locating the cutters in then putting the retaining bracket in (which may be broken if it won't fasten properly) I'm not sure what you can do, other than calling your local Philips Service Centre,

My Kenmore room AC spews black, carbon-like particles when running. I have cleaned the filter, with no change in the particle emmision.


misterbb I have the same thing happen with the LG in my office. I took the unit out, then took it outside, sprayed the front and back coil will Greased Lighting or dishwashing detergent mixed with water and washed it down with a garden hose. What is happening if like mine is that the dirt and such has built up on your fan blade, condenser coil, and evap coil and the unit just needs a good cleaning. I use to work in a shop in Texas where we did a lot of window units and cleaning was just part of the job. The coils should be bright and blade clean. Also if you take the cover off you should oil the fan motor with a light weight household oil. Hope this helps.

Filter


If this one is like mine (and it looks just like it except my Lasko doesn't have the wood grain on the front) there is no filter inside. It is just a fan inside a plastic case.

If you want to clean it, you can try blowing it out with compressed air if you have a powerful enough compressor. If you really want to clean it, you will have to take it apart and that isn't as simple as it sounds if your unit is just like mine.

There are a bunch of screws on the back, which isn't too bad except one of them is a triangle headed "security screw" that is probably there to keep you from taking it apart. I looked at several stores and couldn't find a screwdriver to fit the stupid thing. So what I did was that I took out the rest of the screws, pried the case open as far as I could with my hands and cut the support that the last screw was attached to from inside with a strong pair of wire cutters.

I figured that when I put it back together, I wouldn't miss that one screw and I wouldn't want to deal with a triangle head screw every time I took it apart in the future anyway.

Once the case is apart, I found the best way to clean the blades is to remove the whole blade assembly and just wash the thing out in the tub and let it dry thoroughly before putting it back in. There's a metal brace (Held on by two screws) at the top the top spindle goes into and there's a single screw on the shaft of the motor that hold the bottom spindle in. It probably sounds more complicated than it is. It's pretty simple when you see it.

If you put it back together right, you almost can't do anything wrong. You might want to take a damp cloth and wipe down the interior of the case and the shrouds that surround the blades as well. If you've had it a while, they'll be dirty. You'll see/feel the dirt wherever it is. This thing is a pretty simple machine and is easy to clean once you figure it out. I put a few drops of oil on the top spindle when I put mine back together.

Blades pull hair when cutting


Just make sure the blades are aligned precisely and make sure it is well oiled. It should be oiled after every use. I use WD40

3F blade, took the blade out to clean, can't get back together


That's probably the blade guide. It goes on the "spring"; the piece that holds the cutting blades together.
The blade won't work without it.
