Question about Braun Syncro 7526 Electric Shaver

2 Answers

My Braun Syncro 7526 pop up trimmer stopped working.

One day, while using the pop up trimmer to cut my week old beard off, it just stopped working and pulled the hairs out from the root. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the blades had completely stopped moving.  I'm afraid the repair would be more costly than just getting a new shaver. Can anyone help? Thanks.

There should have been a little tube of oil in the package when you bought it. the baldes dry out and then won't move. take the oil and run a small amount acrossed the blades. let it sit for a few seconds and then turn it on. once the oil lubes the blades, they should start moving again.

If the oil lubrication doesn't work, then it might be that the mechanism has broken. Does the rest of the shaver work OK? You can get away with replacing just the trimmer (along with the casing) for only $12.99 at the Shaver Outlet. Follow THIS LINK.

Hopefully you or someone you know is handy to do the repair yourself. Here's how to open the shaver:



Opening a Braun 7000 Series Shaver

1) Find a thin metal object with no sharp edges (such as a nail file). Use your thumb and pull on the bottom end cord socket part, enough to cause a gap between it and the back shell. Insert the metal object into the gap in the center of the part. THEN pry it off. If you use a regular screw driver, you will likely cause gouges in the plastic. And the best leverage is in the center.

2) The silver side parts are held on by two tabs at the top. With the bottom piece gone, the side parts swing off easily. Don't worry about keeping track of which sides the silver trim pieces go on, as they're designed to fit on only one side (you'll see the cutout for the shaver head stem is off to one side).

3) The case is held together by 4 small torq screws. Use a torq screwdriver--do not attempt to do this with anything else. Be careful to turn the screws slowly, so you don't strip them.

4) With the screws removed, the two halves of the shaver will come apart. The remaining parts can be extracted without any special tools. Keep note of how they are removed, as assembly will be the reversal of removal.

5) Note that if you are replacing the batteries (there are two of them), you will need a soldering iron to detach them from the circuit board, unless you're replacing the whole part.

6) Reassembly is pretty much what you expect--the reverse of disassembly. However, the bottom cord socket part is tricky to get put into place. Pushing straight down on this part will not get it to go in, nor any other obvious way. It's best to get the prongs inserted on one side, then while pushing in on the prongs of the opposite side, apply pressure on the top side surfaces. The part should snap right back into place.

Head (foil and blades) used to last 10-12 months. Now they last about six weeks. I don't hink I have done anything different when shaving. Braun Syncro is abotu four years old.


Six weeks? That's very peculiar. Are you certain that they are seated properly on the shaver? If there's a problem with the head and they're not fitting into place slightly off, they can end up wearing out faster.

If you've used your shaver for a number of years, your best bet is to probably step up to a newer model Braun shaver. The 7000 series was OK, but the 8000 series is much better. You can still pick up new old stock ones off "that auction site". They shave not much differently from the new 9000 series (Pulsonic). Good luck!

I have the same problem with my Braun 7570 as the Jan.8, 2008 writer about the 7526 or 7680 shaver. The blue button came off but the shaver still works


This button wears out or just fails with time, but is replaceable.

Braun 7526 Syncro Body Housing with Trimmer
$12.99, Fits Model: 7526, Type: 5493, Includes back case, front case with trimmer/switch, side grips and bottom 'plug', 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.

Braun latch


I had the same problem.  Press the blue button to make the "head" of the charging mechanism pop up (probably already stuck this way), then pull it up slowly but firmly.  It should pop out with little difficulty.  Keep pulling it up until you've removed the entire head from the charger, but make sure you don't pull far enough to yank out the wire that attaches the head to the charger base.
You will expose a spring housed in a white tube on the base of the charger.  Pull out the spring, then reassemble.  The head won't pop up automatically anymore, but you'll be able to pop it up by hand--an easy tradeoff for a working clean and charge!
