Philips Shaver series 3000 Electric shaver HQ8270/21 With Jet Clean system is rated
Rated 3 out of
Excellent but unreliable
My first one lasted nearly two years. It was one of the best shavers I have ever used. Since it died just within the warranty period I was able to get a replacement. Unfortunately that died within about 6 months.
The same problem with both of them: After going through one of the cleaning cycles the "full charge" lights stayed on permanently, discharging the shaver within about 24 hours. No amount of charging or discharging could remedy the situation.
I suspect the problem is a poor water seal so the cleaning fluid gets in an compromises the electronics.
I used another shaver for a while but am contemplating going back to Philips, but hesitate because of this reliability issue.
