I found that the hole that the blade slots into had become worn and the blade was wobbling about too much under the foil. To solve it I wrap a small piece of masking tape around the metal shaft that slots into the hole and then push the blade back firmly into the slot. This seems to result in the blade pushing more firmly against the underside of the foil and giving a shave like new again.

Try sharpening the blades or replacing them. Sounds worn out to me.

Hello. My Braun shaver 8585 model charges and the blue light comes on BUT whne shaving, it seems the motor dies quickly


This is a typical symptom of batteries that have passed their useful life. To restore the shaver to it's previous charging capabilities, you will need to replace the batteries. You will find correct battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need to order two

During shaving the shaver makes a loud grating noise. It works fine otherwise. Even during the cleaning cycle, there is a bit more of that noise. Could it need a new battery?


Most likely, the noise is caused by vibration of a broken piece of plastic in the swivel fframe. If this is the case, the part required to fix it for model 8585 can be found at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

I dropped my 8985 braun and it will no longer shave with the foil head on. It does work if you remove the foil. Did I loose a part?


You probably dented the foil head enough to stop the vibratory action of the blades, thus the working when the foil is removed. Braun has a replacement foil and blade kit sold at Walmart.

Making a funny noise and not shaving well


8585 shaver gave higher tone and stopped cutting especially after a few days growth, even with new cutter and foil. Cutter wasn't pressing against the foil properly due to a bit of wear on the spring clip holding the cutter pin. Fixed with about 1cm of cigarette paper moistened and rolled into a 1-2mm ball. Stuffed that into cutter pin hole and rammed home with the cutter pin. Take the foil off and wiggle the cutter - if its feels loose, this might help, though the battery might just be getting old.

Braun Drive Unit 7030244


To open the shaver, you will first need to gently pry off the 'cap. on the bottom of the shaver that surrounds the hole where the cord plugs into to. You can use a small flat screwdriver or similar object to do this. Once it is removed, the side grips will pull away revealing 4 screws on the back. Remove screws to take off the back cover. The internal parts will then simply lift out. Reassemble in reverse order.
