Question about Braun Flex XP II 5790 Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Intermittent lack of full charge

When the unit was about 2 weeks old, started getting occasional case of charge not lasting long enough to finish shaving. Happened several times. Sent to repair center; took 3 weeks while waiting on parts. Got it back and seemed to be working OK. Now, started same thing again. Repair center said they replaced chassis and battery. Works OK if use the cord all the time, but I bought it t use without the cord, except to charge. Seems like this model is a lemon.

    Well, back to repair again. This time they tell me it needs a new pc board, and Braun is having a hard time getting them from their supplier; no idea when they can get the part from Braun.

    Customer Service is no help. They say they can't do anything until it has been at repair center for more than 30 days awaiting parts. Not going to get any help there.

    My advice is to buy someone else's shaver; definitely avoid the 5790. I don't know what other models may share this same pc board.

    So, here we have a bad product and poor customer service. Fortunately, Braun is not the only electronics maker around.

    I had the same problem. This morning (Christmas) the shaver was completly dead. No lights, no charge -- will not even work when the cord is plugged in!!! I love my Braun electric shaver, but I am very dissapointed with the short life I got our my particular razor, which I estimate to be about 2 years.

It's the holiday season - take it back to where ever it was purchased and tell them you got it for Christmas and you would just like to exchange it for one that works. They have a 2 year warranty, if you want to go the hard way. You won't need a receipt, or a box. I spoke with Braun Customer Service and they advised me to just take, the one I had, back to the store where it was purchased, and get a new one. This is a great time of the year to exchange it. The Braun Customer Service number is 1-800-BRAUN-11. I'm glad, I just exchanged the one I had, because, my father says it's the best shave he has ever had.

Kohler 12 RES - Unit fails to start occasionally. Attempting a manual start by placing switch in run position, cause a loud click, but no cranking. The panel says CC. This morning I put a jump start...


I finally solved the intermittant starting problem on my Kohler 12 RES by replacing the strater and the starter relay. I was also experiencing the occassional OC indication, red blinking LEDs on the ATS, and intermittent non-starts during the weekly exercises. The problem happened during power outages a couple times also. If I flipped the start switch between auto and run quickly the generator would occasionally start. Once started, the generator runs fine. I ordered a new starter, which included the starter solenoid. By the way, don't worry about the genuine part thing..the old starter was a Delco made overseas. I ordered a new starter online for $85 (6744N) and it was indentical to the genuine Kohler starter. Replaced the starter and it improved the problem but did not totally solve the intermittent starting. Ordered the starter relay (GM49746) replaced it and the problem is solved.

The scooter charges and shows full charge when started. Scooter will not drive uphill - certainly seems to lack torque - when driving up hill battery indicator drops to red


Either the hill is too steep of a grade/incline, the weight of the rider is more than the scooter is designed to carry, or the battery does not have enough power. If the batteries are old or have not been maintained properly, they may not be getting a deep solid charge that is needed to operate on hilly terrain. This is indicated when the batteries show a full charge, and then drop off quickly after a short period of use. Make sure that you are not exceeding the recommended weight limit for the scooter and that your batteries are less than 2 years old. Inclines of more than 5-6 degrees are typically not recommended for safe operation.
I hope this information is helpful to you, good luck!

It's eight years old now, and if as you say it has had intermittent use, then the battery will probably have died unless charged at last once a month.
