Question

How do I remove the shaving heads and then put them back?

Answer

This depends on the shaving unit.

If your shaver has an RQ10 shaving unit, the shaving heads cannot be removed. To clean them, pull open the three shaving heads one by one. Rinse all three shaving heads and all three hair chambers under hot water for 30 seconds.


If you have replaced the shaving unit with an RQ12+ shaving unit, follow these steps:

REMOVE:

Make sure the appliance is switched off.

  1. Pull the shaving head holder off the bottom part of the shaving unit. 
  2. Place the retaining ring holder on the retaining ring (1), turn it counterclockwise (2) and lift it off the shaving head (3). Remove the retaining ring from the retaining ring holder and repeat this process for the other retaining rings.
  3. Remove the shaving heads from the shaving head holder. Each shaving head consists of a cutter and guard.

Note: The cutters and guards are all matching sets. If you accidentally put a cutter in the wrong shaving guard, it may take several weeks before optimal shaving performance is restored. 

REPLACE:

  1. Place the cutter back into the guard. 
  2. Put the shaving heads back into the shaving head holder.

Note: Make sure the projections of the shaving heads fit exactly into the recesses. 

  1. Place the retaining ring holder on the retaining ring (1), place it on the shaving head (2) and turn it clockwise (3) to reattach the retaining ring. Repeat this process for the other retaining rings. 
  2. Reattach the shaving head holder to the bottom part of the shaving unit.
