**Remington recommends that you
use your new shaver daily for up to
three weeks to allow time for your
hair and skin to become accustomed
to the new shaving system**
Shaving Tips
■Ensure your skin is dry and free
of oils.
■Wait at least 15 minutes after
getting up before shaving, to ensure
your face is free of puffiness that
may be present from sleeping.
■Always hold the shaver at a right
angle to the skin so the screens
are touching the skin with equal
pressure.
■Stretch skin with the free hand
so hairs stand upright, making it
easier for them to enter the cutting
chamber.
■Shave with short, circular strokes.
The use of short, circular motions in
stubborn areas may obtain a closer
shave, especially along the neck
and chin line.
■Do not press hard against the skin
in order to avoid damage to the
foil heads.
Trim
Your Remington® electric shaver features a proprietary 3-position pop-up
trimmer.

Position 1: Off position
Position 2: Locks the pivoting head
Position 3: Cuts longer hairs before
they are shaved close by the foils.

How To Order Shaver Accessories
Please refer to the shaver comparison and features chart near the
front of this manual that lists the
correct replacement part number
for your shaver.
It is very important to replace your
head and cutters when necessary to
ensure 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:
■ Irritation: As the heads get
excessively worn you may
experience some skin irritation.
This would be especially noticeable
when you apply moisturizing lotion.
■Pulling: 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.
Maintain your shaver’s peak
performance! Keep your shaver
performing like new!
■Because your satisfaction is
important to us, we want to make
it simple for you to keep your new
shaver performing at its peak.
■Did you know that for the best
possible shave, it is necessary to
replace the heads and cutters on
your shaver every 12 months?
