Question about Braun Flex Integral 6520 Electric Shaver

1 Answer

No power My braun 6520 recharging light turn on as if recharging, but when I use the plug or without it, the shaver doesn't turn on. It was working fine the day before, but now none of the settings work. Don't know if the motor went bad or what, but there were no signs of it dying. It was working great until a few days back. Any suggestions or anyplace that can fix it? I am in Columbus OH if that helps. Thank you. - Nadeem Khan -

    I now have the exact same problem. The shaver worked fine two days ago, and now doesnt run at all. Apparently this shaver gives you no indication it is dying. The battery voltage appears to be okay at 2.7V. I took the shaver apart and cleaned out all the hair stuck inside with no luck. doh. Great shaver though.

The motor brushes may be bad. Take the screen off and turn the shaver on. Manually move the blade back and forth a bit and see if it starts to engage. If it begins to run when you do this, the brushes are worn. Braun does not make replacement motors for your shaver

SOURCE: Braun electric shaver will not charge.

Batteries can be replaced in most Braun shavers, while leaving the current circuit board intact. Braun didn't intend for this to be done, and as such does not sell the batteries alone (they include them on the circuit board). There are some aftermarket Braun shaver parts sellers that can supply just the batteries, but they charge a rather high price. Go to a website like "" and you can get AA NiMh flat top batteries that will fit your Braun for less than half the market price.

As for disassembly, it varies depending upon your shaver. Visit "" for the older service manuals. More modern day ones can be found by Google searching.

Of course, if you're not comfortable doing soldering, then you'll have to replace the batteries along with the circuit board. Suppliers like "" provide these parts, as VtToolMan mentioned.

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.

The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.

When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.

Here's a reference for your future use. carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.

Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.

I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: The braun 5510 shaver.. rechargeable or not

If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

SOURCE: My Braun shaver 8585 has died. Foil, cable, box,

If I understand correctly, the shaver is dead but all other components are in good condition. If this is the case, you should consider ordering a replacement lower unit. See link below

Newer models made by Braun do not use all the same parts as your shaver so this would be a good way to go

Where can i take my Braun 6520 to have the battery replaced?

If your shaver works but will not longer hold a charge as long as it should, the batteries need to be replaced. If the shaver is dead and the green indicator no longer illuminates when plugged in, you have waited too long and the circuit board is now damaged and can not be repaired.

For battery replacement, see at the link below

I have 6520. when i plug it into a wall jack i does not charge and does not show power from the wall jack any more. this means when the battery is out it will not work any more. please help

Model 6520: If the green light no longer illuminates when you plug it in, you have waited too long to address the battery problem and the circuit board is now damaged. Replacing the batteries alone will not help as it will still not be able to recharge. To repair, you will need a new circuit board but Braun has discontinued for this model. You will be lucky to find one at this date.

model 5520, 5525, 5550, 6520, 6525 and 6550 are all prone to this problem when you neglect batteries that no longer charge correctly. It is suggested that batteries be changed early on when you notice that they are a problem instead of running your shaver from the cord until it dies.

Battery is fine - but green light showing recharge is no longer lighting and no electricity is getting to battery. It has NEVER been dropped or mishandled. Shaves fine but only on minimal battery power...

Assuming that your cord is not damaged, the circuit board is bad. This most often happens when you continue to use the shaver well after the batteries have lost their ability to hold a charge well.
You will find a new circuit board for model 6520 at See link below

My braun Flex 6520 does not turn on. When the cord is plugged in no red or green lights come on. Is this a costly repair? Would it be better to buy new as this razor is approximatley 5-6 years old?

The cost to repair this isn't going to be nearly as much as a new Braun shaver as nice as this one.

The problem is that your rechargeable batteries have become degraded to the point that they won't take and hold a charge. Because the batteries have become so degraded, that even with the power cord plugged into an outlet, you still can't use the razor solely on AC power either.

If you want to have the shaver repaired for you, you can contact or give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 to get an estimate of the repair costs. Typically it takes about a week or less once they receive your shaver. They also stock most parts for many brands of shavers, including your Braun. I've used them for getting parts for several of my shavers and found them to be a very good company.

If you're handy and have a soldering iron you can disassemble the shaver and remove (unsolder) the bad batteries and solder in a new set. There are two small caps on the bottom of the razor that cover the screws that hold the body havlves together. Remove these with a small pick or small flat bladed screwdriver and remove the screws and carefully remove the body halves and that will let you get to the main board and the batteries.

Simply heat up your soldering iron and melt the end tabs off the batteries and remove them. Then solder in the new ones and make sure they are properly secured and have adequate solder on the tabs for a good connection. Put the covers back on and install the screws and and the caps and your all set for recharging the shaver. Let it charge for at least 8 hours and you should be all set!

So whether you decide to have the repair done for you, or do it yourself, I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Braun Shaver 360 Complete #8985

the 110 plugin goes into a circuit which changes AC to DC for charging the internal NiCad batteries. If there is NO charge whatsoever in the batteries, the shaver will not work. If you have any electronics background a simple test with a VOM will determine if the bridge rectifier is putting out any DC.[you must disassemble the shaver] If you have no experience on circuits take it to a repair location.
