Question about Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver

Cleaning base thinks it's empty

I just changed the cartidge in my cleaning base. The base starts off saying it's full then quickly moves to the middle mark. When I place the shaver in to clean/charge, the motor whirrs for a couple seconds, clicks off and the base then says that the cartridge is empty. I tried another cartridge, same problem. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem. Try taking out the cartridge and in the compartment where the razor sits in to get clean, there is a drain hole on the left side. Try cleaning the hole out with a toothpick or something similar. It seems that the drain hole clogs and causes this problem. I just did it and all seems to be working fine.
Cheers

Braun 8995 - YELLOW LIGHT STAYS ON!


I experienced the same symptoms on my 8995; solid yellow light (even though the cartridge was full), cleaning failed (red light on) after pressing either start button. After many failed attempts to clean the razor, unplugging the station and pushing start button, I decided to clean the razor under running water. I rinsed the razor under water and then turned it on allowing it to run in a pool of water (like it would in the station). After water cleaning, I returned the razor to the station, pressed the start button and it worked! Was able to do both the quick clean and auto clean.

Charger arm will not stay locked in place to charge the razor


This is a common problem for older cleaning bases. The part is worn out. You will need to replace the upper housing of the cleaning base. You will find this item available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

If repairing the unit is not your thing, you can replace the entire unit instead. See item linked below

I replaced the cleaning liqud cartridge but it shows the red light indicating it is empty.


Hi,
here is the solution..follow the steps please..

Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards
------------------
  • Replace the cartridge in the base station and close it.

  • The indicator light should cycle then change to green. If it doesn't then unplug the base station, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in.
  • Press the lock button to clean the shaver. If everything went well it should start cleaning like normal.

    Just replaced motor assembly now always shows liquid in cleaning station empty even with new cartrige


    The motor assembly and the fluid level indicators are completely independent components and any coincidence between the timing of the problem with the cleaning base and your repair of the motor unit is likely pure coincidence. More likely, the cleaning base is at fault and will need replaced.

    Won't turn on unless we pop the top foil up..then we have to push it back in place.


    this is an odd problem. i have two thoughts of what the problem may be.

    1. the thin trimmer blade between the foils may be dented causing extra friction that is sufficient enough to keep the shaver from starting from a stopped position. If this is the case, you will need to buy a new foil and cutter set. These are available at shaveroutlet.com. to check this, remove the foil from the shaver. look on the underside and you will see where this center cutters fits to the drive arm on the shaver. move this back and forth with your fingers. if it has a dent or imperfection, you should be able to feel it snag as you move it back and forth

    2. your shaver motor brushes may be worn. if this is the case, i would expect that when you do get the shaver running, it is not running at full speed. the part needed to repair this problem is linked below

    My 7526 won't clean cycle


    It is probably plugged up at the base. Take the cartridge out and turn it upside down> next clean the openings with a cotton swab< it make take a while as it can get gummy> That should fix the problem

    New cleaning solution cartridge leaked


    If you both have the same problem from the same merchandise, than maybe you should just switch razors and Rely on a different company.
