►Drying the shaver with the self-cleaning recharger
English
1. Attach the outer foil section to the shaver.
2. After removing excess moisture, wipe any remaining droplets
from the system outer foil, grip, and main body rear terminals.
3. Dry the shaver with self-cleaning recharger using “Dry/Charge”
mode.
Note
Do not use the self-cleaning recharger while droplets, soap, or
shaving gel remain on the shaver.
Doing so may change the concentration level or constituent of
the cleaning liquid in the cleaning liquid unit, which may degrade
cleaning, sterilization, and lubrication performance. This may
also cause cleaning liquid to spill from the self-cleaning
recharger or prevent the blades from drying sufficiently.
►Replacing the system outer foil
1. Press the system outer foil release buttons
and pull down the system outer foil.
2. Align the foil frame mark (
) and the
system outer foil mark ( ) and securely
attach together until it clicks.
• The system outer foil cannot be reversely
attached.
• Always insert the system outer foil to the
foil frame when attaching to the shaver.
• Do not press the system outer foil
release buttons with excessive force.
Doing so may bend the system outer foil,
preventing complete attachment to the
foil frame.

Do not add detergent and water
except when replacing the
cleaning liquid.
Doing so may deteriorate the
cleaning function. (See page 16.)
The blade has not been
thoroughly washed.
The STATUS lamp glows.
After cleaning, oil-like droplets
may remain on the outside of the
foil frame. This is the lubricating
component of the cleaning liquid
and does not indicate a problem.
You may wipe it off with a soft
cloth.
See page 23.
Action
Check that the AC adaptor is
connected to the self-cleaning
recharger, and that the adaptor is
plugged in to a household outlet.
(See page 16.)
Confirm that the shaver is
properly attached to the selfcleaning recharger.
(See page 16.)
The Clean or Dry function may
not operate under extreme low
temperatures (approximately 0 °C
(32 °F) or lower).

The self-cleaning recharger
makes a loud sound due to the
cleaning of the blades.
After cleaning:
The self-cleaning recharger
makes a loud sound due to the
removal of water droplets in
order to speed drying.
The sound after cleaning is different
from the sound during cleaning. The
water level has dropped and it is
removing water droplets from the
blades after cleaning. This does not
indicate a problem.
The shaver cannot be
charged.
Gently wipe the main body rear
terminals and the charging
terminals of the self-cleaning
recharger with a cloth or tissue
dampened with water.

another detergent, the cleaning
liquid will foam. Use the selfcleaning recharger after
thoroughly washing and drying
the shaver.
English
Problem
Replace the cleaning liquid.

FAQ
Question
Action
Pour new water
and detergent into
the cleaning liquid
unit.
English
Problem
Why does “Dry/Charge”
mode take longer than
“AUTO” mode?
Answer
The drying time for the “Dry/
Charge” mode is set longer as
there may still be excess moisture
on the grip or areas other than the
system outer foil after the shaver
has been rinsed and cleaned with
water.
On the other hand, the drying
time for the “AUTO” mode is
shorter since only the system
outer foil is wet, which reduces
the total time for the whole mode.

non-ionic surfactant agent,
antimicrobial agent, lubricant, and
fragrance.
