I'd like to change the batteries of an old Remington model 5BF1 electric
shaver that I have but I can't find any instructions on how to go about it.
No problem getting the batteries, but I don't want to pry around the case
without some idea of what I'm doing. Can anybody give me instructions on how
to get the case open?
I got 55 hits with this link. I only looked at the first few.
Could not find any where manual or opening case added any links.
I would guess that in the absence of a visible screw or opening point that
you are looking for a small slot that a dime would fit in to pop the case
If that is the design I am thinking of there is a little metal plate on the
bottom that pops off. There are two springs on each side at the top, that
can be pried off. The shell then comes apart.
Look for cracks in the plastic, and pry gently on the cracks. Feel the
stickers, sometimes a sticker will cover a screw head.
Look for email link and ask?
Yeah the metal plate is the key. They are a great shaver BTW, worth
fixing. I've had the cord model for a zillion years, got my
rechargeable at a garage sale for $5, was missing the spring that holds
the cutter up against the screen. No springee, no shavee.
Yes, just pry. It just snaps into place. The little springs on top are a
little more difficult to get off but just pry them off too. You can take
them off first if you want and you will see how the plate is just snapped
