Either the charge adapter is faulty or the rechargeable battery is worn out. If this battery is 3-4 years old then you need a new battery.

Why have I got a red light on the bottom of my shaver when I am using it


It is common for many Braun shavers, that if the indicator light flashes red while the shaver is being used (switched on and running), it means the battery is low and needs to be charged soon.

Below is an example from a manual for a Braun model 7526 shaver. You can search that site for other manuals if this is not the correct one.

This model shaver has 3 indicator lights:
1) Green (Charging)
2) Red (Low battery)
3) Blue (Power cord attached and plugged into the wall)

Download the manual for the model 7526 here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/20281/Braun-5301.html#manual

"The green charging light shows that the
shaver is being charged. When the rechargeable
battery is fully charged, the charging light
flashes or goes off.

If later on, the charging light comes on
again, this indicates that the shaver is
being recharged to maintain its full
capacity.

The red low-charge light flashes when the
battery capacity has dropped below 20%,
provided the shaver is switched on. The
remaining capacity will then be sufficient
for 2 to 3 shaves."

Hello i have phillips cool skin shaver cant remember proper model of it but its the one with stand charge which fills up shaver with this skin balm and also there i small stand charger as well and none of...


Hi pi finch,

Below are some troubleshooting steps for this issue. If you have any questions or need additional assistance, Consumer Care can be reached at 1-800-243-3050.
Question Why does the shaver not charge when I place it in the refill & charge station? Answer
  • The adapter has not been properly inserted in the wall outlet
  • the small plug has not been inserted properly in the refill & charge station.
  • There is no electric contact between the refill & charge station and the shaver because the shaver has not been placed properly in the station. First put the bottom of the shaver in the station. Then push the shaver backward till it locks into position with a click. The indication lights on the shaver and the station light up to signal that there is proper contact between shaver and station.
  • There is no electric contact between the refill & charge station and the shaver because the contact strips are dirty. Clean the strips with a damp cloth.
Hope this helps. If so, let me know by rating this solution.

When plug in the light does not come on to charge it. What is wrong with it ?


Most shavers will have little metal conductors on the bottom back that when placed into the charger device must line up with the base charger. Try re-adjusting your shaver in the base.
If your shaver does not use a base-charger, and simply plugs into the wall to charge, a lot of cheaper models have low quality cords etc that can be easily damaged. Sometimes people like to rip of the charge-cord out of the shaver socket without realizing theres a mechanism to properly disengage it and thus cause damage to it.

Hope this helps

My Braun tootbrush has never charges-i have a 240 & 11v shaver socket but nothing seems to happen when i plug it in?


When charging a device on some type of charging block you need to plug it into a regular 110 socket as the block has the correct modifications in it for the device that it charges. This 11volt shaver socket is for older shavers that dont charge up you just plug them in and use them.I hope this helps you ....good luck

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 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. www.electricshaver.com 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!

Just bought braun 8585 electric shaver, return it to the store as nothing happens while charging. Got a new one and still not able to charge it, shouldn't the indicator turn red or green? nothing happens....


Did you insert a cartridge into the cleaning base? It needs that in order to work. Otherwise, try plugging the charger directly into the shaver. It should definitely charge the shaver, as long as the shaver is fine. Depending on the model, the charging indicator may be green or blue.

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.
