The ‘how to fix’ question has popped-up quite a number of times on different message platforms and comment sections, and it has led to an unfair, collective bashing of all-electric shavers. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that there is nothing more annoying and frustrating than trying to shave before a dinner date or an important meeting, only to find out that your electric shaver has stopped working. A lot of people have these kinds of problems and I can’t emphasize how frustrating it can be.
My electric razor is not working: how to fix this?
There can be several reasons why your electric shaver is not working properly:
- Your shaver is outright bad.
- Your technique may not be on point.
- Your facial hair is too long.
- You may be using the wrong shaver for your type of beard.
- Inadequate lubrication
A typical scenario that shows this problem involves a recently purchased electric razor that fails to perform as expected by the user. For instance, hairs are left behind, shave is not close enough, razor burn occurs, and more. Most times, this may also be the user’s first experience with an electric razor, although that is not always the case. However, this situation can be totally avoidable but only if you know what to look for and what to do even after identifying the problem.

My electric Razor is not Working
Electric razors are very different from the regular manual razors because they are designed to have many parts, most of which are quite complex. So it may not be very easy to identify the problem associated with this device.
Perhaps your device has completely died, or has stopped responding, or the blades are not trimming close enough, or it does not shave with ease as it normally would. What do you do? In this case, it is important that you carefully examine the whole electric shaver, taking out each of the blades so as to inspect them for traces of a build-up or damage of any kind.
Another thing to do in this situation is to check if your shaver is well charged or not as this may be a reason why it won’t power on. You can also check to see if water has gotten into the electrical unit of your shaver.
But remember, it is impossible to fix a problem unless you know where to find it, what caused it and what parts are affected. So if you find out that your electric shaver does not shave properly or is not working at all, there might be a few factors at play. Here are some reasons why it won’t work; let us examine them and find possible ways to solve them.
Reasons why your electric shaver doesn’t shave
1. Your shaver is outright bad.
Okay, this may sound somewhat blunt and quite radical, but one of the main reasons why your electric razor won’t shave may be because it is bad.
There are several varieties of electric shavers out there on the market which come in different types, made by different manufacturers and fall in different price categories. And to be quite honest, some of them simply perform poorly.
For instance, in a couple of review platforms online, most people have had bad experiences with Remington shavers, however in a recent review we came across, the worst-performing Panasonic ever used was mentioned. Normally, Panasonic is probably many people’s favorite manufacturer, but this only shows that we should always evaluate the specific models or at least a series rather than the manufacturer as a whole.
Here, the Panasonic ES-SL41-S gets two thumbs down because there are simply better shavers available on the market for the same price as this. In this case, I would advise that you return the shaver (if it is still within the time frame) and purchase a better one that will best suit your needs in terms of your beard or skin type as well as your shaving habits. You may also want to check out our reviews section in order to get you started on this.
2. Your technique may not be on point.
If you are new to electric shaving or you’re just starting with this particular method, then you shouldn’t be so quick in judging the performance of your electric razor. This is because electric shaving is entirely different from the regular traditional shaving that you had been used to, be it with the cartridge, the safety of this method or even straight razor. Also, your skin may need some time to get used to this new shaving method.
Now, assuming your shaver is working properly and is suitable for the job, you may still need some prep work and a couple of technique adjustments which can really go a long way in transforming your shaving experience. So now you just need to ask yourself the kind of technique you’re using and whether or not it is efficient.
3. Your facial hair is too long.
It is important for you to know that all electric shavers, even the high-end ones, perform excellently well when your facial hair is at a reasonable and manageable length. Also, the entry-level electric shavers are usually best suited for daily shaving and when the stubble is short while the more advanced ones can handle longer hairs conveniently.
However, when the hair is too long, the shaver might end up pulling and yanking the hairs and may eventually miss some of them, especially the ones that lie flat on the skin.
Now, trying to go over those areas several times while applying even more pressure will most likely result in discomfort, irritation, and more frustration. But a solution to this problem would be to shave your hair more often (if not daily) or to use a manual trimmer before you use your shaver so as to reduce the length of your beard and to make shaving a lot easier. Also, some electric shavers function better than others when it comes to shaving longer, flat-lying hairs. There are even some razors that come with trimmers as one of their unique features. You can check out our article on “what is the best electric razor for me?”
4. You may be using the wrong shaver for your type of beard.
Another thing to know is that, even if your electric shaver is of high quality, from the best manufacturer, and you bought it based on other people’s reviews on that particular type, it may still not be the right one for you and your skin (mind you, I’m not strictly referring to the foil vs rotary decision.) The exact model of shaver that works perfectly well for your friend or neighbor might not work in the same way for you.
For instance, there are some foil shavers that are well suited for thick and coarse beards than others. While some work better for those with sensitive skin and short hairs, others can handle longer and wiry hairs better. There’s no special formula or special model that works for everyone. You just need to know your skin and hair type and find out which works better for you. A good place to start in this is by picking the right shaver and you can get that in our ultimate buying guide for electric razors and our recommended shavers list.
This factor may be another reason why your shaver will refuse to work. If you are someone that likes tossing around your shaver, not carefully storing it, or banging it against the sink often so as to get the hair out, just know that all these can cause it to either stop working or prevent it from performing well. Now mishandling your shaver is something you would definitely want to avoid. Of course, you need to get the hair out of the blade, but when shaking the hair out, do it gently and not against any hard object. When it comes to storing, you can store the electric shaver in a safe area, away from water, sharp objects, or even heat.
6. Inadequate lubrication
If you have followed diligently the checklist until this point and your shaver doesn’t fall into this category or still fails to perform as it’s supposed to, then it’s time to show it some extra care. There are certain particles like hair clippings, dirt, dead skin or lather buildups that can seriously impair the performance of an electric shaver. Now, depending on the method of shaving that you use (wet or dry), you may have to thoroughly clean your shaver more often than before. And of course, this doesn’t include the kind of cleaning that your automatic cleaning station provides- and that’s if you’re even using it regularly.
Most of the modern electric shavers that are being made can actually be safely cleaned with just liquid soap and warm running water. But be sure to always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations or guidelines for cleaning. After cleaning, you will also need to lubricate your shaver from time to time. For lubrication, you can either use light oil (like engine oil or sewing machine oil) or a spray cleaner & lubricant just as discussed in our blog on “how to lubricate my electric razor.”
Finally, depending on some factors like, your shaving frequency (how often you shave), the coarseness of the beard and the quality of your shaver, it may be required of you to replace them more often. So if you notice a sudden drop in the performance of your shaver or if it has a tendency to pull on the hairs, then you should totally buy a new one.
What Do I Need for Electric Shaver Repair?
There are different replacement parts for electric shavers that are available on retail stores or online stores, directly from the manufacturers or from other aftermarket suppliers. However, the basic repair tools to get your job done includes:
- Shaver lubricant
- A small brush
What Are the Steps in Fixing my Electric Shaver?
1. Check batteries or electrical outlet
Dead batteries are common with shavers that operate with batteries. But an excellent tip to help you extend the life of the batteries is to remove them from the shaver and store away carefully after each use. If you’re using a corded shaver, once you plug in the shaver to recharge it, be sure to check the plug-in and outlet to make sure they are in good condition. Also, avoid placing the cords and the shaver close to water because it can damage it.
When charging your shavers, be sure not to overcharge it because it can lead to overheating of the battery, hence causing it to die.
2. Stop Alternating Between Razors and Electric Shavers
Okay, we know that sometimes you don’t have enough time in the morning to actually use a shaver, so you just grab a manual razor and quickly run it over your face or neck. But if you are cautious of your electric shaving, then you would want to avoid doing this as much as possible.
We agree that shaving with a razor can offer you a close shave, but if not careful, it can also remove a layer of the skin. And due to this, the electric shaver will not be able to perform at its best. So it is advisable to avoid alternating between different shavers and stick to one so as to get that close and perfect shave that you want.
3. Service a foil-head electric shaver:
To service the foil-head electric shaver,
- Unplug the appliance. Start by removing the head assembly which is held on by screws, clips, or a pressure button.
- Next, remove the screen from the head and carefully wipe it clean. But if you notice that the screen is damaged or corroded, replace it.
- Finally, remove the blade assembly from the oscillator assembly, and carefully inspect and clean the blade assembly with a spray cleaner. Also, if you think your foil-head electric shaver requires lubrication, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to do it properly.
If your electric shaver is one that you can use in the shower (waterproof), then the inner workings of the unit will be well protected from moisture by the O-ring seals. However, this is not something you can do by yourself as it requires professional service. Asides the foil-head shaver, rotary-head shavers are also simple to maintain as long as you clean and lubricate them from time to time.
4. Servicing a rotary-head electric shaver
To do this, you need to:
- Unplug the appliance. As mentioned above, remove the head assembly from the housing case, then remove the shaver head from the blade assembly and carefully place the assembly on a flat or work surface.
- Next, remove the screen and the blade unit, clean the screens with am the small brush and carefully inspect the blades. If you notice that the screen is damaged or corroded, replace it.
- If you think your rotary-head shaver requires lubrication, follow the manufacturer’s instructions in order to get this done.
As always, we believe that your safety comes first before anything. So be careful while handling your electric shaver. One important point to note is that water and electricity don’t make the best of friends. So be extra careful when using a plugged-in shaver around the sink area. Although most shavers are waterproof, you need to be careful to only use them when they’re not plugged in. Also, never use a corded shaver in the shower or tub to avoid hazards.
The reasons why most electric shavers don’t work are listed above. So if you find that your shaver is not working, then you can identify what is wrong from the points above and easily fix it.
It is also important that you know the exact reasons why your electric shaver is malfunctioning so that you can fix the problem right away. Just note that electric shavers are essential grooming devices required by people, and they can get overused, mishandled, and broken if not operated with maximum care.
So to avoid rushing into the bathroom for a quick shave only to find a lifeless shaver and to ask yourself why your electric shaver doesn’t shave and how you can fix it, try to handle it with proper care. Since you have a better idea of what to look out for, how to troubleshoot, and how to make sure you are caring for your shaver before and after each use, shaving should be a lot easier.
All shaving methods have their pros and cons and at some point, you’ll have to choose what works best for you while making some compromises. And in the case of electric shaving, it is usually just a matter of choosing the electric shaver that suits you and adjusting your technique a little bit.
We hope that this post has enlightened you and will help you improve your electric shaving experience. Good luck!
Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Electric Shavers
• Importance of Troubleshooting
Practicing regular troubleshooting and maintenance for your electric shaver is crucial. These simple acts ensure optimal performance and longevity. Many problems that might occur can be easily identified and resolved with proper troubleshooting techniques.

Shavers occasionally face performance issues that might be caused by the motor or switches. Testing these parts will allow the identification of the exact problem and its resolution.
• Evaluating Skin Discomfort
If your shaver is causing discomfort or pinching your skin, carefully inspect the screen. Check for damage or corrosion which might need attention.
• Servicing Foil-Head Electric Shavers
For foil-head electric shavers, always disconnect the power before starting any maintenance job. The screen should be thoroughly cleaned and replaced if any damage or corrosion is detected.
• Cleaning the Blade Assembly
The blade assembly should be cleaned with canned air. This helps to remove any residual dust or hair, preventing clogging and maximizing the shaving quality.
• Proper Lubrication
Serving as the central mechanism of the shaver, it’s crucial to lubricate the shaver according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Maintaining Rotary-Head Shavers
Much like their foil-head counterparts, rotary-head electric shavers also require careful maintenance. Be sure to disconnect them from the power source before beginning any service. The screens should be thoroughly cleaned and replaced if they’re damaged or corroded.
• Importance of Regular Cleaning
Ensuring optimal performance, cleaning your shaver immediately after each use removes excess hair that might otherwise clog and damage the blades.
• Priority of Blade Replacement
A little-known fact, but replacing the blades at least once a year is highly recommended. It ensures sharpness and performance levels remain consistent over time[^1^].
• Preventing Blade Corrosion
Keeping the shaver dry when not in use is important. Moisture can lead to corrosion and weakening of the blades.
• Avoiding Battery Overcharge
Overcharging can degrade the battery quality over time. Avoid this to prevent overheating and decreased lifespan of your shaver.
• The Utility of a Paintbrush
An additional tip is to use a small paintbrush to clean the blades thoroughly. The bristles will reach small crevices to remove tiny hairs and debris.
[^1^]: Electric Shaver Maintenance
In conclusion, neglecting your electric shaver’s maintenance might save you time in the short term but will likely result in deteriorated performance and shortened lifespan. Regular troubleshooting and maintenance, therefore, are activities that should not be overlooked if you want your electric shaver to stand the test of time.
Remember, many issues can be easily resolved if they’re identified early, saving you the cost of complete replacement. With proper care and attention, even daily-use items like your electric shaver can be transformed from consumable commodities into long-lasting investments.
• Understanding the Power Supply for Your Electric Shavers
Electric shavers typically derive power from either household current or interior rechargeable batteries. Shavers require a plug-in to a power outlet to run directly off your home’s electricity, while battery-operated shavers use rechargeable batteries.
• Foil-Head Versus Rotary-Head Shavers
There are two common types of electric shavers: foil-head and rotary-head. A foil-head shaver has a thin, perforated metal screen covering the oscillating blades.
Hair enters the perforations and is cut off by the blades. Conversely, a rotary-head shaver utilizes circular blades covered by rounded heads with openings that capture and cut stubble.
• Troubleshooting Common Issues with Electric Shavers
If you’re experiencing issues with your electric shaver, a handful of regular checks can be done. Firstly, ensure your power source is working correctly. If your shaver plugs into an outlet, try plugging it into a different socket.
If it’s battery-powered, check if the battery is fully charged. In addition, verify that the electric cord is in good condition and isn’t frayed or broken.
Regular cleaning and lubrication of the shaver can also alleviate many issues. An electric shaver that isn’t properly cleaned and lubricated may become noisy, offer sub-par shaving performance, or even stop working altogether.
• Finding Replacement Parts for Your Electric Shaver
Fortunately, replacement parts for electric shavers are readily available. Parts like screens, blades, and other components can be purchased at your local retail stores and through online marketplaces. While parts vary by the model, you’re likely to find exactly what you need with a bit of searching.
• Servicing a Foil-Head Electric Shaver
You can easily service your foil-head electric shaver at home.
You start by removing the head assembly. This exposes the screen and blade assembly for cleaning. Use a manufacturer-recommended cleaner to clean the screen gently. Following this, inspect the blade assembly closely. Look for signs of wear or damage, and replace the component if necessary.
• Servicing a Rotary-Head Electric Shaver
The process for servicing a rotary-head electric shaver is similar.
Start by removing the head assembly, which will expose the screens and blades for inspection and cleaning. Clean the screens by rinsing them under water or using a cleaning solution provided by the manufacturer. Then, inspect the blades for any damage or distortion.
• Safety Precautions When Using Corded Electric Shavers
Electricity and water can be a dangerous combination. If your shaver is plugged into an outlet, extreme care must be taken not to get it near water. As a rule of thumb, never use a corded electric shaver in the shower or tub.
Shaver’s that are similar in nature should generally be used away from water sources to minimize any risk of shock.
One way to mitigate the risk is to opt for cordless, water-resistant shavers, particularly if you prefer to shave in the bathroom. More details on how to safely use electric appliances can be found on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
Your electric shaver will provide many years of reliable service when properly maintained and used with care. Regular cleaning, periodic service, and following all safety instructions are critical to ensuring the usability and longevity of your shaver. With these practices, you’ll enjoy a seamless shaving experience.
• Experiencing Issues with the Bald Eagle Trimmer
During one of my regular grooming sessions, I encountered a peculiar problem with my Bald Eagle trimmer. Despite its initial solid performance, it began showing signs of sluggishness. When it stopped working entirely, I attempted charging it. But to no avail.
• Reaching for Customer Support
Naturally, I decided to contact the customer service of Skull Shaver, the manufacturer of the Bald Eagle trimmer. Disappointingly, my attempt to reach out to them didn’t yield any response. This unexpected lack of customer support left me to figure it all out on my own.
• Disassembly Unveils a Problem
Faced with a non-functioning trimmer, I took it apart myself for a detailed inspection. This uncovered a significant amount of hair trapped within the trimmer heads. It was a surprising find, as I take meticulous care of my grooming tools.
• Cleaning the Trimmer Heads: A Guide
To anyone facing a similar situation, here’s a cleaning guide that might prove useful. It’s important to consistently clean your trimmer heads for maximal performance. Personally, I prefer using the small nylon brush that initially came with the unit.
A few sweeps back and forth remove trapped hairs and keeps your trimmer running smoothly. This might seem basic, but it’s a step often overlooked that can significantly lengthen the lifespan of your trimmer.
• The Origin of Hair Build-up in the Trimmer
Rethinking my grooming routine, I surmised the hair build-up in the trimmer was probably due to my infrequent shaving schedule. Additionally, the routine use of sunscreen likely contributed to the problem since the grease from the sunscreen had a tendency to trap and clump hair together.
• Misunderstanding the Function of Grease
Interestingly, when I first noticed some grease in the trimmer head, I assumed it was meant to lubricate the internal parts. However, after further research, I understood that trimmers like the Bald Eagle don’t typically require lubrication.
Cleaning, instead of lubricating, seems more critical to maintain optimal performance. University of Florida’s research on trimmer maintenance also corroborates my findings.
• Consequences of Hair and Grease Build-up
The grease, combined with the hair build-up, gummed up the gears of my Bald Eagle trimmer. This increased the load on the motor and batteries. Gradually, it led to the unfortunate shutdown of my trimmer.
• An Attempt at a Hardware Fix
Motivated to salvage the situation, I thought of adding a mechanical switch to bypass the electronic components of the Bald Eagle trimmer. However, despite my best efforts, I couldn’t successfully pull through with this modification.
• A Reliable Alternative to Bald Eagle Trimmer
To wrap this up fruitfully, Id like to emphasize a practical alternative. After my experience, I highly recommend the Mach 3 Razors by Gillette.
They’ve proved to be more reliable than my previous choice. Ultimately, regular maintenance and knowing how to take care of your grooming equipment is key to consistent and high-quality performance.
• Desertcart’s Unspecified Electric Razor Model

The Crucial Role of Regular Electric Shaver Maintenance
Ensuring your electric shaver is well-maintained is key to its optimal performance and longevity. Neglecting this can cause reduced efficiency, leading to a poor shaving experience and frequent replacements costing you more than necessary.
• Troubleshooting Techniques for Electric Shaver Issues
Often, issues with electric shavers are manageable and simple to resolve if correctly identified. Common examples include checking the power source, testing the motor and switches, and inspecting for damage or corrosion.
– Checking the Power Source
A significant number of electric shaver failures can often be traced back to the power source issues. If the shaver does not turn on, a good place to start is by inspecting its power source. Depending on the shaver, this could be a cord or a battery.
– Testing the Motor and Switches
In some instances, the shavers motor or switches might be the problem. A faulty motor might display symptoms like slowed blade speed or stoppages during usage. The shaver may also fail to turn on or off at the press of the switch. If such issues persist, it’s often indicative of fundamental electrical problems.
– Inspecting for Damage or Corrosion
Another common culprit behind shaver issues is damage or corrosion, especially in older models. Always keep an eye out for any physical damage or corrosion on the shaver, as this can severely affect its functions. Moreover, its worth noting that damaged or corroded shavers can be a health hazard.
• Proper Maintenance of Different Electric Shaver Types
Different electric shavers require varying maintenance routines. These differences primarily arise from their construction, particularly the shaver head.
– Maintenance of Foil Head Shavers
Foil head shavers need regular cleaning to prevent hair, skin cells, or shaving cream buildup that can obstruct the foil. Regular checks for any foil damage should also be performed. If damage is found, replacement is usually the best course of action. Routine lubrication will ensure the shaver operates smoothly and extends its overall life.
– Maintaining Rotary Head Shavers
Rotary head shavers, on the other hand, also require cleaning to stop build-up. Unlike the former type, this variant calls for regular replacement of the entire rotary head after a certain time frame, usually one year. Regular lubrication, as with foil shavers, is important to keep the shaver functioning optimally.
• Essential Tips for Electric Shaver Care
Consistent care of the shaver will prevent numerous issues down the line, saving you time, money and ensuring a satisfying shave.
– Cleaning the Shaver
Cleaning the shaver after each use is the most basic yet most crucial maintenance step. It prevents hair from building up in the shaver, which could affect its performance in the long run.
– Replacing Blades Regularly
Regularly replacing the blades ensures an efficient and clean shave. Worn-out blades can lead to a less satisfactory shave and potential skin irritation.
– Avoiding Water Contact
Although some shavers are designed to handle water or be used in wet conditions, preventing unnecessary contact with water, especially for those not designed for it, can help maintain the electrical components in good condition.
– Preventing Battery Overcharging
Overcharging the shaver’s battery can hasten its degradation, shortening its lifespan. Hence, it’s recommended that you unplug the shaver as soon as it’s fully charged.
• Benefits of Regular Electric Shaver Maintenance
Proper maintenance comes with various benefits. Prime among them is cost savings, as regular maintenance helps prevent major malfunctions that would require costly repairs or replace. A well-maintained shaver also guarantees a far superior shaving experience. The blades run smoothly and consistently, providing a clean shave.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s tips on maintaining electronic devices provide further insights that can be applied to electric shaver maintenance. Make maintenance a part of your routine to enjoy the best possible experience from your electric shaver.
Remember, a properly maintained shaver not only guarantees a great shave but also saves you money and time in the long run. Regular maintenance is an investment that pays off handsomely, not just in the dollars saved but also in a consistently satisfactory shaving experience.
Troubleshooting Tips for Electric Shavers
Electric shavers can present a handful of issues, such as non-functionality, sluggish operation, noisy performance, poor cutting, and skin pinching. Here are several troubleshooting tips to address these common problems.
• Electric Shavers Not Working
An electric shaver that isn’t turning on might need a battery replacement or could have a defect in its electrical system. In any case, ensure the device is charged and the power cable is functioning properly. If its battery-powered, try replacing the batteries. If these simple solutions do not solve the issue, it might be necessary to disassemble the device and check the wiring or motor.
• Improving Sluggish Operation
A sluggish operation typically indicates that the blades need cleaning. Over time, hair and debris can collect inside the head, causing the shaver to work inefficiently. Regular cleaning and maintenance can improve the performance of your device significantly.
• Reducing Noise and Improving Cutting
Noisy operation or inefficient cutting usually indicates a worn-out blade or foil. Replacing these parts can improve the performance of your shaver and reduce the noise.
• Avoiding Skin Pinching

The shaving technique is another factor that may need a tweak. Most people switch from using a traditional razor to an electric shaver without adjusting their technique accordingly. Using an electric shaver involves more of a back-and-forth motion rather than the down-and-up motion used with a conventional razor.
A coordinated, systematic approach focusing on the changes in the facial contours can bring a marked difference to the shaving experience.
• The Problem with Long Facial Hair
The length of the facial hair may also affect the overall performance of the electric shaver. Electric shavers perform best on short hair, and longer hairs may result in pulling or missing hairs altogether.
If the hair has grown considerably long, consider using a trimmer first to reduce the length before using the electric shaver.
• Choosing the Right Electric Shaver for Specific Beard Type
Perhaps, a major hitch on the highway to a smooth shave could be mismatching the shaver with the beard type.
