It cuts but the foil leaves grey marks on face!

Hi we bought this shaver a found it cuts OK and is cheap but it seems to leave grey marks on my face. So the whiskers get cut but it looks like someone put grey makeup on my face so from a distance it looks like a 3 day growth which is wierd. I have wiped the foil today wwith a microfibre cloth and rinsed the cutter and foil. I will have to see if that corrects it!

Purchased in June 2019 at Target Australia for $30.00.

great shaver and worth the dollars

I brought this to replace the SOLO and this shaver is excellent and worth the dollars.
I brought it on Ebay and have used it and it works like a dream.
No complaints from me at all

Its like cutting grass with a blunt lawnmower

Wet shaver now, this electric model has nothing in the chamber
Looks the part, seems friendly but has a passive nature to shaving needs.
I have not had any issues charging it, or with any failures but it seems to just not work effectively.

Makes noise, sounds like its working and then you are trying to press it into your face harder to get some results.

Least used shaver in my cupboard

Good present, wont harm anyone

Hi min40fc, Thank you for providing your feedback regarding your shaver. We are sorry to hear you are having issues. We would like to know how long you have had the shaver for as it sounds like the heads are having the issue. Please call our free call number 1800 623 118 to discuss this matter further. We look forward to hearing from you soon. regards Customer Service TeamIts ok Remington. I just dont use your shaver much. It was bought brand new and not working as expected.. Look I use cheap disposable shavers now and dont bother much with elecrric models. Pehaps look into your foil screen, you have been foiled by its total inadequacy to direct facial hairs. Thankyou for your response. Perhaps my face is not compatible with your design

This shaver seemed ok, I owned one of these f3800 dual foil shaver purchased in May now 3rd September and the foil screen requires replacement, a hole in screen. NOT Recommended.


Poor quality - needs foils & cutter every 6 months accordingto the manufacturer

Not a great shaver - even Remington tech dept admitted that - my wife bought this for me in May this year & its the 25/10/17 now & it needed new cutter & foils as they developed a large hole - gotta go over the same area when shaving - multiple times & much of the time have to use the trimmer & then shave again - the only good thing is that Remington gave me new cutter & blades for free


not as good as expected

I bough this shaver because I remembered the one I had when I was young. It had a single foil and was a very good shaver, almost as good as using a blade.
This one however is quite a different article. I have to go over the same area numerous times to make a difference. I feel the holes are so small in the foils that hair does not pass through to be cut. The name on the shaver wore off after a month. Would not buy or recommend this to anyone.

Gives a close shave

I bought this shaver at the Shaver Shop for $29.00 having previously had a Remington cordless shaver with three separate cutting heads, similar to a Phillips Shaver.
With this type of shaver once the foil head breaks you just throw it in the bin and buy a new shaver as the replacement cutting head and foil cost more than the whole shave did in the first place, $35.00
The shaver has good performance and a good battery life. When I recharge I leave it for around 12 hours.
The little cleaning brush like all these cleaning brushes is for too small and to clean the cutting head I use an old tooth brush and a one inch paint brush as well. When cleaning the cutting head you need to hold it firmly otherwise it turns round and comes off complete with it's spring.
The side burn trimmer is extremely sharp and can also be used to trim long facial hair although it will easily cut your skin.
That said it does provide a very close shave and there's no need to waste your money on much more expensive electric shavers.


This is a great shaver!

I formerly had a mains electric Remington which just stopped after about 10 years, so I did some research and found this one at theGood Guys at Castle HIll, and have to say it's better than anything I've used before, and gives such a close shave I hardly ever use a blade razor now
It's battery operated, very sharp teeth, very portable, and for $40 what more can I say :)

Questions & Answers

How do you use this shaver?

Hi Braydon, Insert the power cord into the power plug at the base of the shaver. When doing this for the first time the plugs may be tight at the pin connection points, proceed to insert the plug firmly until it is in place and will not disconnect when gently tugged. 1. Press the On/Off button to activate for shaving (Diagram A). 2. Hold the shaver so that all the heads touch your face together (Diagram B). This allows the shaver to work the way it was designed for the closest shave and minimum wear. Avoid holding the shaver at an angle so that only one head touches the skin. Use short, circular stokes. Use your free hand to stretch your skin. This encourages your whiskers to stand out, making it easier for them to enter the cutting chamber. Never press hard when shaving. Pressing hard only flattens the whiskers, which makes it harder for them to enter the cutting chamber. It will also cause the cutting surface to wear out more quickly. 3. Press the On/Off button to turn the shaver off Remington Support Team

is there an online source of information on the F3800? Got one from dad... It works but have no info.
