INSTRUCTIONS
Getting a Close, Comfortable Shave
Congratulations on your purchase of a premium
Remington® MicroFlex® TCT™ Shaver. Your new
Remington® MicroFlex® TCT™ is the only Rotary Shaver
with Total Closeness Technology™(TCT™). The MicroFlex®
TCT™ has more blades, RPM’s and flexing head action*
than any rotary, to shave your entire face including the
tough spots like your neck and around your chin.
* More flexing head action as measured by vertical
movement at the center of head.
As with every shaver, your shave will improve over time.
So allow about three weeks to develop an effective
shaving style and for your beard to adjust to the new
shaver. The adaptation period may take a little longer
if your skin is sensitive, or if you alternate between
shaving methods.
The Best Technique
It’s simple to get a great shave from your new shaver.
Here are a few tips for getting the closest shave possible:
Always use a clean; dry shaver.
Make sure that the cutter head
assembly is in the locked
position.
12
3
9
6
Wait at least 15 minutes after
getting up before shaving, to
ensure the face is free of puffi ness that may be present from
sleeping.
Make sure your face is clean and dry
before starting.
To Trim
To use the Easy-View ® pop-up trimmer,
simply push the trimmer button up. The trimmer
will pop-up for use. Hold the shaver as shown
in the illustration. To conserve battery energ y
(on rechargeable shavers only), it is recommended
to use the trimmer only when needed for trimming.
When through using, push the trimmer button
downward to lock into the off position.
To Shave
Push the on/off button to activate the
shaver for shaving.
Trim Sideburns
Simply touch the comb-edge of the trimmer to
the desired line for neat, clean sideburns.
The MicroFlex® TCT™ needs no adjustments to the heads or cutters before
you shave. The floating heads will automatically adjust to the contours of your
face. It is not necessary to apply pressure while shaving…let the shaver glide
lightly on your skin. This gentle touch
makes shaving easier and helps a void
possible skin irritation.
Trim Mustache
Hold shaver at desired trim line for a quick, easy,
professional trim. The trimmer can also be used to
trim the upper edge of your mustache.
Use short, circular strokes. Use your
free hand to stretch your skin. This
encourages your whiskers to stand out,
making it easier for them to enter the
cutting chamber.
•Always keep the protective headguard on the cutter head and keep
the trimmer in the “off” position when the shaver is not in use. The
headguard must be put on with the rear tab to the back of the shaver.
For a Better Shave…
To help maximize your shaver’s performance, consider using the
Remington® Pre-Shave Powder Stick (SP-5) or the Pre-Shave Lotion
with Aloe (SP-6). Just rub over your beard. Both absorb moisture and
facial oils, helping set up the hairs so they enter the cutting chamber
more easily. They make shaving quicker and more comfortable.
Cleaning your shaver:
TO ASSURE OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CLEAN YOUR SHAVER AFTER EACH
USE. The cutting system of this shaver was designed to
be cleaned by rinsing under warm running water or by
brushing.
Cleaning your Remington ® MicroFlex® TCT™ Shaver is
easy. (NOTE: With the R-9300/-9350/R-TCT model, the brush
icon will blink to remind you to clean your shaver.)
■ Open the hairpocket by squeezing
on both buttons and rotating awa y
from the body of the shaver. You may
blow out the stubble thoroughly, or
rinse the shaver head in water. Rinse
both sides of the head assembl y.
Caution: Do not remove or replace the head assembly while
shaver is running or plugged into an electrical outlet as it may
cause damage to the unit’s cutters.
■ Worn or damaged parts should be replaced with Remington®
replacement parts only.
When is it time to replace our heads
and cutters?
It is very important to replace your heads and cutters
when necessary to insure a close, comfortable shave
without irritation. We recommend they be replaced
every 12 months. Here are some signs of head and
cutter wear, indicating that replacement is needed.
(NOTE:R-9300/-9350/R-TCT cutter icon,R-9200 &
R-9250- the yellow LED- will blink when it is time to
replace the cutters.)
Irritation:
■ At Least Once a Week:
For more complete cleaning, remove the cutter retainer
assembly from the hairpocket by turning the center knob
approximately 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Hold cutter retainer assembly as
shown, and remove head by turning
approximately 1/8 turn in the direction
shown. Brush clean both the head and
the cutter. Reassemble head to cutter
retainer assembly by aligning and turn ing head 1/8 turn in the opposite direction. Repeat this
process for each of the 3 heads. Clean each head and
cutter set one at a time to prevent mixing cutter components.(These should be kept as sets). After cleaning,
place cutter retainer assembly in the hairpocket, and
secure by turning center knob
approximately 1/4 turn clockwise.
Caution: Never put the shaver
completely under water.
Do not use any aggressive
cleansing agent as this may
destroy the shaver coatings.
■ To clean and lubricate your shaver’s cutters and head assembly,
apply Remington® Shaver Saver ® (SP-4) Lubricant. The lubricant
helps remove hair clippings while reducing wear. A quick spray after
each shave keeps your shaver operating at peak performance.
Hairpocket
Head
Cutter
As the heads get excessively worn there may be some
skin irritation. This would be especially noticed when
applying After Shave lotion.
When the cutters wear you may feel a sense of
“pulling”and a loss of closeness when you shave.
This is an indication that it is time to replace your
heads and cutters.
Charging
Prior to using your shaver for the first time, put it on
charge for 24 hours.
To charge your shaver:
■ Make sure your shaver is turned off.
■ Connect the cord to the shaver and then the charging
adapter to the electric outlet. A charging indicator light
will come on.
■ Your shaver cannot be overcharged, so you can leave
it plugged in and charging between shaves.
■ Use only the charging adapter supplied with the
shaver.
■ The R-9100/-9200/-9300/-9250/-9350/R-TCT come
with a special feature that allows you to run the shaver
directly off the cord. Your shaver will not recharge while
you are shaving, so after shaving directly from the cord,
turn the unit off and set aside to charge.
■ The R-9100/-9200/-9300/-9250/-9350/R-TCT will
provide up to two weeks worth of shaving after a one
hour charge or a single shave after five
minutes of charging.
Troubleshooting:
■ If your R-9100/-9200/-9300/-9250/-9350/R-TCT shaver ba ttery is completely discharged or the shaver has not been used for
an extended period of time, the shaver may not start when operated using the cord. If this condition occurs, charge the shaver for
approximately five minutes before shaving.
■ Your R-9100/-9200/-9300/-9250/-9350/R-TCT cord/cordless
shaver should not be used strictly as a cord-operated shaver, as
continued cord only use will result in reduction of battery life.
■ In order to preserve the life of the batteries, they should be fully
discharged every six months and then fully charged for 24 hours.
World Wide Voltage (all MicroFlex ® TCT™ models)
You can take your shaver with you when you travel to just about
anywhere in the world. Your MicroFlex® TCT™ shaver features
worldwide automatic dual voltage conversion providing AC current
between 100-240 volts AC, 50-60 Hz. Just plug it in to the local
outlet (you may need an adapter plug) and use as usual.
Your shaver will convert automatically to the local current
requirements.
Battery Removal:
Model R-9100
has a green indicator light to show whether the shaver
is either fully charged or charging. A red low-battery
indicator illuminates to show when the shaver needs
recharging. This also indicates approximately 5 minutes
of shaving time left when indicator first comes on.
Model R-9200/-9250
features a green lighted fuel gauge that displays the
amount of charge remaining in 20% increments. When
only 20% of the charge remains,the recharge red
warning light illuminates.
Model R-9300/-9350/R-TCT
has an LCD display numeric indicator to show shaver
charge status in minutes remaining. When the Plug icon
comes on,it indicates approximately 5 to 6 minutes of shaving time left.
When your rechargeable shaver reaches the end of its useful life,
the batteries must be removed from the shaver and be recycled
or disposed of properly in accordance with your state and local
requirements.
THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE SHOULD BE FOLLOWED
FOR BATTERY REMOVAL:
■ To avoid a possible electric shock hazard,unplug cord from electric outlet and shaver.
■ Open the head assembly by pressing the
head release buttons and lifting the head
assembly. Pull the entire head assembly off of
the shaver assembly.
■ Push the trimmer button up to open the
trimmer.
■ Remove the trimmer assembly by squeezing
the sides as shown in the picture.
■ Using a small Phillips head screwdriver,
remove the 3 screws from the back of the
shaver.
■ Pull or gently pry the shaver halves apart,
exposing the battery.
■ Pry the lower battery clip off.
■ Lift or pry the batteries out of the shaver.
■ Cut the wires on both ends of each battery and
remove them from the shaver.
