I have a braun 8000 series shaver (8995) and as I am shaving, the shaved hairs inside the head come out, especially when the head is turned sideways or down- its gets all over my shirt and the sink, what a mess! I therefore have to shave with a garbage can under my chin. Can anyone help with this?

Re: shaved hairs fall out of shaver head
This shaver wasn't designed very well for keeping the whisker debris from falling out. I recommend that you shave before you put your shirt on. Otherwise, just try to keep the shaving head tilted upwards. If you've got a heavy beard, dump the whiskers halfway through the shave--that will help minimize the mess. Good luck.
IT'S A GOOD THING THAT THE HAIR COMES OUT ITS STOPS THE CLIPPERS FROM JAMING. USE A GARBAGE BAG AND POKE A HOLE BIG ENOUGH FOR YOUR HEAD. PUT THE GARBAGE BAG OVER YOUR SHOULDERS AND TRIM AWAY. THAT WILL HELP IT FROM GETTING OVER YOUR CLOTHES. IF YOU HAVE A GARAGE PUT A MIRROR IN THERE AND YOU CAN SWEEP UP THE HAIR OFF THE FLOOR EASIER THAN IN THE HOUSE.

But costomer reviews in amazon.com who take braun series 3 combi 30B foil and cutter replacement pack is fits to Braun8985 perfectly, very smooth and close shave. Shaves much better than the Braun 51S screens foil.
This model uses a 'shaving cassette'. The blades can not be removed from the foil assembly. Braun's instruction is to simply rense the shaving head under hot running tap water. Unfortunately, this does not work very well over time due to the poor design of these parts. Once they become clogged up it is usually necessary to replace the cartridge. If replacement is needed you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
I would speculate that the oscillator on the swivel frame is broken making it difficult for the blade to move correctly. If tis is the case, you will need to replace it. You will find this part at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
This problem is usually cause by a worn out shaving head (foil and cutters). Braun suggests that you change these every 12-18 months for best performance. You will find replacements at shaveroutlet.com for your model 4501 Braun shaver. See link below.
It is also possible that your shaver is running too slowly due to an old battery if you've never replaced it. If you require a new battery, it can also be ordered from shaveroutlet.com. See link below.
To change the battery you will need to be able to do a little soldering. Open the shaver by removing the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver and then the screws underneath. You will also need to remove the foil and cutters and then the swivel frame which is attached by two tiny screws. Once removed, you will be able to open the shaver from the bottom and seperate the front and back. Remove the circuit board to easily get to the battery.
Note: The tabs on this type battery will work for most applications however they may be slightly different than some original equipment. For these instances, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather that removing them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can them solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
Hello Brian, You can give the folks at www.electricshaver.com a try. They typically stock all the replacement and repair parts for most brands of electric shavers.
Here's a link to their site where you'll find part #5646768 for about $38 for a new set of the cutter head and foil (screen). It's always best to replace BOTH the foil and cutter block (head) at the same time, as any mircro burrs or nicks in the cutter blades will quickly ruin any new foil screen.
Six weeks? That's very peculiar. Are you certain that they are seated properly on the shaver? If there's a problem with the head and they're not fitting into place slightly off, they can end up wearing out faster.
If you've used your shaver for a number of years, your best bet is to probably step up to a newer model Braun shaver. The 7000 series was OK, but the 8000 series is much better. You can still pick up new old stock ones off "that auction site". They shave not much differently from the new 9000 series (Pulsonic). Good luck!
The one piece motor drive which also contains the shaver head in the Braun wear out. They can be replaced by yourself or a shaver tech. A good place for parts, http://shaveroutlet.com/.
To disassemble the 7000 Series Braun shaver.
Disassembly of the 7000 Braun shaver is basically the same as the 8000 series Braun shaver listed below. The 7000 is actually easier to disassemble as the plastic is much thicker and the bottom socket cover pops right off as there are less tabs and they are bigger.
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.
Hi,unfortunately there is no way to reset this counter,even after replacing battery it still stands there.Braun somehow prohibits user and/or unauthorized repair men to do such action.If you visit the following link there is a official statement by Braun states that" total number of shaves (cannot be reset)." I am sorry,this is the fact. Regards ------------ www.service.braun.com/line/SH/S5646/S5646_3_CHIN_KOR.pdf
