Question about Norelco Reflex Shaver 5885XL Electric Shaver

1 Answer

My 7 year old Norelco 5885XL just died.

The shaver no longer works. For the past two years it wouldn't hold a charge. It would only work while plugged in. I took it appart and everything seems OK. I love the shaver. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Battery appears to be dead.. Plugged it in and no power.. completely dead and no way to recharge battery. Unsure if cord is bad or if its battery only. Norelco shaver 5885 XL model.


It is very unlikely that the cord is bad unless it has been severely stressed. Most likely, the problem is the battery but it is impossible for me to say for sure.

Norelco shaver doesn't recharge.


If the shaver won't hold a charge it usually means that the batteries need replacement. This requires disassembly and soldering skills. It's not hard to do but if you're not handy with a soldering iron a shaver repair shop can do the work for you. However, if you have to pay to have it done and if the blades are more than two years old and need replacement, you might be better off just buying a new shaver.

My Norelco 985RX electric razor does not hold charge


I think you just need a new battery. I used to take my shaver to a shaver repair place to have the battery changed. Then they moved so I tried a place that specialized in batteries (car batteries, toy batteries, etc). They also were able to repair it but for 1/4th of what I used to pay the shaver repair place.

Norelco 835rx unused for 10 yrs, worked 1st time, then not.


The battery pack is, likely bad and will need replaced. Batteries don't hold up well sitting around for 10 years. The stress of charging may have finished off the batteries completely. When the batteries short out internally, the shaver wont run from the cord either. Before ordering batteries you'll want to make sure the old ones have not corroded badly and ruined the circuit board. To check it out, remove the four screws on the back and remove the back cover. Lift out the circuit board and inspect it to make sure there are no burns.

If everything looks to be in good shape, installing a new battery pack will probably be all you need to do. You will fin the correct battery pack at shaveroulet.com. See link below

My Norelco electric shaver #1378/E does not work any more after years of good service. The green charging light is on when plugged in and it flashes when the machine is plugged-in for a time. I...


When your shavers batteries get old enough, they will internally short out or severely corrode. If they internally short out, you will not be able to run the shaver even on the cord. If the batteries are severely corroded, the corrosion may interfere with the switch or wiring causing it not to work. To get it running, you will need to change the batteries and maybe do some work with the wiring and/or switch.

Doesn't hold a charge or cut very well anymore


Heads for your model are no longer available. Shaver will not hold a charge because batteries need replaced. Batteries can be replaced but soldering is required. If you have cleaned it well and it does not cut, I suggest getting a new shaver.
