How to Repair Remington Shavers

Updated March 20, 2017

Repairing your Remington Shaver may ensure that the device continues to properly function for years to come. There may be many reasons the device isn't working properly, including the failure to maintain the device according to the manufacturer's instructions. The best way to repair your Remington Shaver is to clean the device daily, and give it a more thorough clean monthly, according to the instruction in your user's manual. Additionally, you should fully charge the batteries in the device for optimal use.

Press the "Hairpocket Release" button. This button is located on the front of the device, just above where the thumb rests.

Tap any trapped hair into your dustbin.

Put the Hairpocket assembly back into place. Ensure that the assembly has a tight fit, so that it will not disconnect when you turn the machine on.

Remove excess hair by following the procedure outlined in the previous section.

Disconnect the cover of the Hairpocket assembly.

Place a drop of mild dish soap onto the bottom of the assembly cover and brush the soap around with a damp cloth.

Rinse and dry the cover.

Place a small amount of household oil onto each cutter. Grab the plastic case around the outer corner of the device and rotate it toward the dot located on the shaver head.

Remove the outer and inner cutters. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other cutters. Brush off any hair from the cutters.

Replace the inner and outter cutters. Insert the outter cutter by lining up the cutter with the small dot on the device.

Lock the cutter in place by twisting it toward the large indentation in the unit.

Replace the shaver's cover to the device. Close the Hairpocket assembly.

Ensure that the shaver is turned off.

Plug the power cord into the device and the wall outlet.

Leave the device connected for several hours to allow it to fully charge.


If you cannot repair the device on your own, contact an authorised service agent.
