In early August of 2012 a "floating" plastic piece that holds one of the shaving heads in place popped out while he was shaving. He put it back together and was able to use the razor, but the piece would pop out again if he wasn't careful. He told me about this situation and I thought it was time to get him a new razor for a Christmas present. Since Christmas was still several months away, however, I decided to check if there were any Norelco replacement parts available at a reasonable price. I did a search and found this head frame assembly on Amazon. It got good reviews so I decided to order one.
I wasn't too sure about the quality, but when I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised at how well made the unit is. I installed it in my Dad's Norelco without any trouble and everything seemed to work fine. I gave him the razor and he immediately tried it out. Within a couple of seconds he said it was working great. After he finished shaving he said the razor works better now than when it was new. After a week of using it he still held that opinion and said it's like using a completely different razor. He also said that his shaving time is reduced by two-thirds because he doesn't have to keep going over areas to try and cut hairs missed in previous passes. More importantly, he said the razor actually gives a closer shave than it did with the original head. Now, after using it for a couple of months, he still thinks the razor works great.
I wasn't expecting him to actually like the new head frame this much.Read more ›
After replacing the old worn-out original head frame, my razor is good as new. I'm glad I didn't have to buy a brand new razor yet.
The price for the replacement part was a little steep (~$20) for what this is, but about what I expected to pay. My old XL is back to shaving me like a champ! Shipping time was reasonable, and I'm very happy I bought the new head frame.
