Re: Self-fixing base unit

If you take the cover off (do it carefully or you will break he plastic for the indicator lights, like i did) there is a white piece of plastic that holds the wand. just snap that piece back in place and it should now stay down again.

How to fix a Braun series 7 razor that will not charge in cleaning stand

Try plugging the cord directly into the shaver. If it charges this way, your clean and charge unit is bad. A replacement can be ordered from the link below

The top will not stay down for charging

This is a common problem with the clean/charge base for model 7526. The mechanism inside is broken. You can replace the upper housing that includes the locking arm or you can replace the whole system. Both options are available at See links below

Braun 8585 shaver, charges fine, cleaning cycle acting strange where it thinks the razor is clean, but it is not. When new it cleaned at some level every time put in the cleaning base. Now it very...

The problem is the base, not the shaver. Most likely, the circuit board inside the base has gotten wet and is damaged. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced. You will find a replacement at See link below

My cleaning unit does not hook when pushed down. How do I disassmble unit to fix it? Is there a manual?

1. a Piece of tape to hold the locking arm down works
2. for a more long term fix, I drilled a very small hole thru the locking arm when it was held down with tape, I now put a small nail thru the hole and it holds down the arm.

This solution has been working for me for about 2 years, total cost 3 cents for the nail.

Cleaning base

I have been shaving with electric razors for 48 years, and the Braun 8595 is by far the best one yet.
I have had the problem of the refusal of the cleaning station to recognize the level of fluid in the cartridge, three times over the last couple of years. It seems to relate to a build up of shavings in the unit. To get it working again I inverted the unit, and carefully flushed water via a small tube, back through the 1cm diameter hole in the underside of the open base. Of course, the unit must then be thoroughly dried before use, or the sparks may fly. Does anyone know how to dismantle the unit for a safer and more thorough clean?

Charging stand

I just had the same problem, where the top of the charger would not stay down. I tried a spring clamp to keep it in place, and that works like a charm! Try it!

Charging claening unit

Here is the link to the user manual for your shaver if you need it; The release button on the back end of the shaver must activate a couple of small pins or levers that release the mechanism in the base unit to allow the shaver to be removed. If these pins or levers (sorry it isn't clear from the picture) are still moving in and out when you press the release button, the problem is in the base unit. Where these pins/levers would be if the shaver was in the base unit will be the latches that keep the shaver from coming out - it sounds as if one or both of these is broken or stuck - they are probably spring loaded, so a gentle poke with a small screwdriver or similar may free the latch. if they are not obviously broken or stuck, then the problem may be with the springs. this may well be easily fixable depending on how keen you are to take the unit apart yourself. Braun offer a two year warranty on this item, and even out of warranty their service is normally excellent - contact them on; States of America If you wish to try to fix it yourself and want some more help, please post again. Hope this helps :)
