Question about Braun 360° Complete Electric Shaver

I have a Braun 360 shaver which has not been used for 18 months. When plugged in it shows charge, but level still shows empty after a couple of hours charge. Are instructions available on the net?

In your case, it's hard to know exactly what might be wrong without more information. Was the shaver exposed to undue heat, such as left in a car or in a place that wasn't air conditioned in the hot summer?

I have a couple of vintage Braun shavers (over 15 years old) where the batteries do not hold a charge, but the shavers still work when plugged in. One of them will show a low charge level but still work.

Although the batteries in these shavers are fairly robust, if fully discharged and not used for 18 months, it might be that they've got a "low level memory" and will need replacing. If you are handy, you could disassemble the shaver and replace the batteries. They are NiMh AA flat top batteries that you can buy on websites like onlybatteries.com. If you're handing with soldering, you can replace them yourself. If you're unsure about that, you can buy the batteries along with the circuit board as a complete unit that drops right into place. Shaveroutlet.com sells these for the 360 complete shavers. Good luck!

Yes, instructions are available on the internet. Visit this link, Braun 360 User Manual, and it should have all the information you need regarding your shaver.

You state that is works here so other than the charging not showing I don't see a real problem here. If it drains totally and then does not recharge it is one of two things. Bad battery or bad charger. Replace the charging station first.

Hi there, A friend gave me this shaver but there is no charging cord or adapter. I can probably make my own but I need to know if this shave plugs directly into 110-115 AC or whether there is an adapter...


<P>The 8985 shaver only takes about 7&nbsp;volts.&nbsp; The charger that you are missing can be used with 100-240V and has a transformer in&nbsp;the plug&nbsp;that reduces the voltage to just a few volts to charge the shaver.&nbsp; If you connect 100-120V directly into the shaver, you will ruin the shaver.&nbsp; I strongly suggest that you buy the correct cord.&nbsp; You will find it available at shaveroutlet.com.&nbsp; See link below</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><A href="http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-charger-cord-for-7000-syncro-8000-activator-360-complete-p-120.html">http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-charger-cord-for-7000-syncro-8000-activator-360-complete-p-120.html</A></P>

Unable to charge the shaver. The charging unit is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be able to charge the shaver.


The cleaning base is the problem. It probably got wet inside and the circuitry is damaged. This is almost always why these go bad. You dont have to replace it to use your shaver as you now know that you can charge the shaver directly from the cord.
If you want the convenience of the cleaning station, you will need to replace it. You can find a new one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

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.
