Check your Shaver and the manual below first before changing your new shaving-heads.
For Your Information:
The newests Philips Shaving-heads HQ6, HQ8 (HQ177) and HQ9 have so called 'WINGS',
which means that the heads can be placed in only one particular way. You can not place
such heads in a wrong way.
It's easy to replace shavinghead from the Philips brand.
Our alternative Shaving-heads HQ6, HQ8 (HQ177) & HQ9 doesn't have such 'WINGS',
which means that in some models for HQ8, the heads needs to be rotated a little during
placing for right positioning, otherwise the heads can be jamming and have no smooth movement.
CLEAN your shaving-heads bracket (holder) thoroughly under warm water with brush first.
After cleaning you may place the 3 new shaving heads with cutter. Do not forget to place-back
the retaining plate.
Additional information how to replace your shaving-heads in your shaver:
Some models need extra attention otherwise the heads will not smooth moving.
At least shaver types from HQ88xx series need this attention and maybe also some
other models but for this moment we don't know exactly.
Possible other series: HQ71xx, HQ72xx, HQ73xx, HQ8445, PT730, PT860, PT870, AT750.
