I ran into this problem several months ago. I just shook it and forced it until it retracted and never thought anything of it. The trimmer recently broke (still functioned but extended beyond its normal point) and I took it apart. I realized that there were a few broken parts inside (possibly because of my earlier experience). So I removed the few parts and now it still extends to far, but otherwise functions ok if I'm careful.

I would recommend taking yours apart and seeing if you can find any parts floating around which may be causing it to not retract all the way. It may be broken beyond complete repair, but you may be able to get a little more use out of it.

If nothing else, you can order a new casing for it from here

Here are the instructions for taking it apart:

The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom(opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit ofprying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have thatoff, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4screws opening up the interior.

Be careful at this pointbecause there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take apicture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was whenyou opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (minehad 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it withthe new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

Where are the rechargeable batteries located and can any rechargeable battery work as a replacement?


The battery is inside the shaver body. You must remove the rubberized grip to access the screws to disassemble it. You can not use any rechargeable battery. The battery is lithiun ion. The correct battery is available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Braun Pulsonic model 9595. Trimmer will not close properly. Can I repair this myself?


The trimmer is replaceable and can be purchased as an assembly http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/brshrese7pul.html You will T-6 and T-8 torx drivers to take apart the head end of the shaver. Using these tools, remove the swiveling head, the hold down cover over the motor assembly, and then pop off the drive arm for the trimmer. Now the broken trimmer assembly can be slid out of the end of the shaver by carefully prying between the case where the on/off button is located and the black trimmer assembly base with a small flat blade jeweler's screwdriver. The new trimmer assembly can then be slid into the case and the shaver reassembled. Just be sure the ends of the retraction spring on the new trimmer assembly are installed over the little chrome retaining lugs for them or your trimmer will not fully retract (my trimmer assembly arrived with the spring ends loose and not retained by the lugs).

Suddenly,the trimmer blade of my braun 8985 shaver has started literally plucking my hair..i don't know wht the problem is


If you've used the shaver for a very long time, it could be that the trimmer part has worn out. You can buy a replacement body for your 8985 that includes the trimmer, from shaveroutlet.com. Replacement is not very difficult (not soldering involved). You pull off the bottom plug socket, take off the sides, unscrew 4 torx screws on the body, and the shaver comes apart. Good luck!

Trimmer not retracting back into shaver all the way


Hi Sorry I don't have the answer but this must be a common problem as my braun has the trimmer sticking out at 45 degrees when closed. The head lock went 2 weeks before the trimmer wouldn't retract so it looks like a design problem

The razor head comes loose from the two arms.


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.
