Question

My shaver does not shave very well / does not work at all. What is wrong with it?

Answer

Make sure you move the shaver against the direction of hair growth. In order to optain the best results, the angle between the skin and the shaver (handle) has to be 70°, or 90° between your skin and the shaving head. If this is not the problem, try applying a drop of sewing machine oil. If the shaving performance still does not improve, it is probably time to replace the shaving foil and the cutter block.

The batteries may be empty or you have not inserted them correctly in the battery compartment. The pictograms in the battery compartment show in which direction the + and - poles have to point.

If the batteries are empty, you can also run the appliance from the mains. Put the appliance plug in the shaver and put the adapter in a wall socket. Then switch on the shaver.
