Tips for the perfect shave

We recommend that you shave before washing, as the skin tends to be slightly swollen after washing.

Hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to the skin. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth.

To maintain 100% shaving performance, replace the shaver foil and cutter block, when the replacement light (9) comes on (after about 18 months), or when the shaving parts are worn.

Keeping your shaver in top shape

Cleaning indicator

Your shaver should be cleaned daily in the Clean&Renew™, and certainly when the yellow cleaning light (8) shines constantly after shaving. If this is not done, the yellow light will go out after some time. The shaver`s electronics will then assume it has been cleaned manually


and a new calculation of the time when the next cleaning is required will be started. During the cleaning process in the Clean&Renew™ the yellow light will flash and will go off after approx. 4 hours when cleaning is finished.

Automatic cleaning

Once the shaver is put into the Clean&Renew™, it is cleaned automatically (see separate instructions). Manual cleaning is recommended only when the Clean&Renew™ is not available, e.g. when travelling.

Manual cleaning

This appliance is suitable for cleaning under an open water tap.

Warning: Detach thehand-heldpart from the power supply before cleaning it in water.

Regular cleaning ensures better shaving performance. Rinsing the shaving head after each shave under running water is an easy and fast way to keep it clean:

Switch the shaver on (cordless) and rinse the shaving head under hot running water. A natural based soap may also be used provided it contains no particles or abrasive substances. Rinse off all foam and let the shaver run for a few more seconds.

Next, switch off the shaver, remove the shaver foil and the cutter block. Then leave the disassembled shaving parts to dry.

Alternatively, you may clean the shaver using the brush provided:

Switch off the shaver. Remove the shaver foil.

Using the brush, clean the cutter block and the inner area of the shaver head. However, do not clean the shaver foil with the brush as this may damage the foil.

Replacement light for shaving parts / Reset

To maintain 100% shaving performance, replace your foil and cutter block, when the replacement light for shaving parts (9) comes on (after about 18 months) or when worn.

Change both parts at the same time for a closer shave with less skin irritation. (Shaver foil (2) and cutter block (3): 31 S)

The replacement light will remind you during the next 7 shaves to replace the shaving parts. Then the shaver will automatically reset the display.

After you have replaced the shaving parts (foil and cutter block), use a ball-pento push the reset button (10) for at least 3 seconds to reset the display manually.

While doing so, the replacement light blinks and goes off when the reset is complete. The manual reset can be done at any time.

Preserving the batteries

In order to maintain the optimum capacity of the rechargeable batteries, the shaver has to be fully discharged (by shaving) every

6 months approximately. Then recharge the shaver to full capacity. Do not expose the shaver to temperatures higher than 50 °C for extended periods of time.
