Replacing the shaver head:
Over time, the cutting heads on shavers will dull, clog, and break. This article will explain how to easily replace the cutters on Norelco shavers yourself.
If you replace the cutter heads over the life of your razor it will prevent your shaver from clogging or becoming dull. Which means you'll get a better shave.
The steps outlined below will show you how anyone can easily perform this repair.
Before beginning your repair, make sure you have the correct parts by viewing our Norelco shaver parts page.
1. Remove the shaver head
Open the shaver by pressing the button at base of the head. Then simply pull the shaver head away from the body.
Remove the cutters from the head by turning the locking piece counter clockwise. Then pull it away from the shaver head.
Now you can remove the cutters from the shaver head.
Each cutter will have metal tabs and a bump of metal on the edge to indicate the proper installation position. Align the bump of metal towards the center of the head and set each cutter in its designated spot.
Place the cutter lock loops over each one of the cutters. Then twist the center of the cutter lock clockwise to secure the cutters to the head.
Then just snap the cover head back onto the shaver and get after that five o'clock shadow.
And that's how easy it is to replace your cutters and keep your shaver working and cutting like it's brand new.
