3.0 out of 5 stars Clean the head!!, 17 April 2010
This review is from: Philips NT9110 Nose Hair Trimmer (Personal Care)
Many people have experienced this trimmer suddenly not working any more and many people have had replacements. Ths simple secret is to run the end under a warm tap for a minute or 2 and it will start working again (as I found out this morning). The head does not even have to look dirty or be used much for it to jam which is why the instructions advise cleaning it after every use.

Thanks for this Gallilao. I had the same problem and just came to buy another one. 60 seconds under the hot tap and its running again. Still a great product though and I'd still recommend to others.

I was thinking I was going to have to buy a new trimmer until I came across this review.

Held the trimmer head under the hot tap for a minute; now working again.

Thanks for a very useful tip.

Keep that water running. Like others on here mine stopped working, I ran it under the water for quite a while with no luck. Just before I was about to give up I gave it one more run under the tap and kept switching it on and off - then suddently it started back up.

Never give up....

Same here. My rarely-used Remington wouldn't work and so I was researching various models on Amazon, looking for a suitable replacement, and looking at the reviews, when I read this invaluable tip. The trimmer now works better than it ever has. You've saved me money, Gallilao. Thanks.
