8595 Pop-Up Trimmer Broken

My 8595 pop-up trimmer is broken, one of the thin plastic prongs on the side is broken and it disengages from the slide shaving mode controller. Can I buy the part and replace it myself or must it be serviced? I live in zip code 94588, where's the nearest repair outlet/shop if I need to take it in?

Replacing the Braun 8000 Series Activator Motor Drive Unit. The Motor Drive Unit is a one piece unit containing the motor and shaver head. Cost $33.99 at http://shaveroutlet.com/.

To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.

Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.

The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.

There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.

This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.

Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.

This is the best solution I've found. (Found it thanks to another forum). Its the whole casing which includes the trimmer. Frankly, I'm not going to argue with the price.

The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom (opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit of prying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have that off, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4 screws opening up the interior.

Be careful at this point because there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take a picture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was when you opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (mine had 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it with the new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

The trimmer assembly has come off completely, in one piece.


If the rest of the shaver works OK, then there may be a small detent on the slides that is broken; this could be on the trimmer grooves or in the mating grooves on the shaver body. In either case, you may need a new part.
If none are broken, then you may be able to press it back in the same way it came out; light pressure, but do not force. If unsuccessful, you may have to pry off the back to reinstall. A flat (not sharp) object inserted in the groove that runs around the body should pop it free; pry carefully as you work around the case. If unable, your options are to find a service shop or replace.

How to replace a drivers side window regulator & motor


Not as complicated as it sounds. First you have to remove inside door handle, usually a couple of hidden screws. Then, you need a thin trim removal tool or stiff putty knife to slip under the edges of the inside door panel. As you slide it around the perimeter, you should run into a number of pop fasteners. Just twist your knife and they should release. Unplug your control switch and remove plastic vapour barrier to access ports in the door frame. Assuming window does not operate, you may have to fiddle around a bit to disengage the motor/regulator ... There is always a way. Assembly is just the reverse.

Braun Pulsonic model 9595. Trimmer will not close properly. Can I repair this myself?


The trimmer is replaceable and can be purchased as an assembly http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/brshrese7pul.html You will T-6 and T-8 torx drivers to take apart the head end of the shaver. Using these tools, remove the swiveling head, the hold down cover over the motor assembly, and then pop off the drive arm for the trimmer. Now the broken trimmer assembly can be slid out of the end of the shaver by carefully prying between the case where the on/off button is located and the black trimmer assembly base with a small flat blade jeweler's screwdriver. The new trimmer assembly can then be slid into the case and the shaver reassembled. Just be sure the ends of the retraction spring on the new trimmer assembly are installed over the little chrome retaining lugs for them or your trimmer will not fully retract (my trimmer assembly arrived with the spring ends loose and not retained by the lugs).

The on/off slider is stuck on won't slide to off position


The trimmer/switch is broken. You will need to replace it. You will find the components that you require at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-8995-8595-and-8795-body-housing-with-trimmer-p-684.html

To replace the part you will need to remove the 'cap' that surrounds the cord hole on the bottom of the shaver by gently prying it off with a small flat screwdriver or similar object. Once removed, the side grips will easily pull off revealing 4 screws. Remove screws to seperate the front and back case. The inner parts simply lift out and you can put them into the new case

Yo replace it, you will need to first remove the 'cap' on the bottom of the shaver. This is a piece of plastic that surround the hole on the bottom of the shaver where the cord plugs in. Gently pry it off with a small flat screwdriver or similar object. Once removed, the side grips will simply pull off revealing 4 screws on the back. Remove screws to remove the back cover. Then list out the internal components.

Pop up trimmer stopped working Remington R830


Make sure you are using the trimmer with the shaving heads on the shaver. With heads removed, the trimmer on the back will not work properly. If thats not the problem, the trimmer is broken or jammed. clen the blades really well with a toothbrush and rubbing alcohol. If they're jammed, this will probably free them up. If that doesnt do it, the trimmer is probably broken and that part is no longer available from Remington. If you really like this model, you can find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com
