Question about Norelco 8170XLCC Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Brand new razor.. one clean and then...

Same issue as this last poster.... I follow the directions which say to plug in the base and then attach the shaver. I then push the start button and the shaver is lowered into the solution. It is immediately raised to what I think is the drying position. After that nothing happens. The shaver never turns on or off as the booklet says it should. The green and yellow lights flash and a while later only the green is on steadily.

Had the same problem. The cleaning light was flashing faster than the charge light. I pressed the on/off button twice in quick succession and the cleaning cycle started normally and the lights began flashing together. Don't know why I had to press the button again, but it did the trick.

Can the arm of the jet clean system be retracted into base for travel or storage


Yes, after you push the start button on the unit, pull the plug out of the wall socket when the arm gets to its bottom position. It will stop at this lowered position. When you plug it in again, it will go back to its upright position. Norelco ships the new cleaning units in this contracted position. When you plug it in presto! You are ready to go.

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.

    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

    Shaver will not charge or clean in the base


    All you have to do is take the base apart. Turn it upside down, and there are two plastic clips on the rear portion of the base. Press them in with a key or screwdriver and wiggle the base a bit to remove the inner portion from the outer shell. Make sure you unplug the unit and remove the cleaning cartridge before doing this. Once it is apart, place a small wedge underneath the portion of the electric contact that sticks out to touch the shaver, and press the back of that portion out so that it slightly bends the contact strip and makes it stick out a little further. Then remove the wedge and put the base back together. It will work again, as the contacts can now protrude to touch the shaver and run the cleaning and charging cycle.

    Shaver locked into base


    Push down on the blue switch that activates the cleaning system. The switch should be flush with the rim of the cleaning well in order to release the razor.

    Cleaning base


    I have been shaving with electric razors for 48 years, and the Braun 8595 is by far the best one yet.
    I have had the problem of the refusal of the cleaning station to recognize the level of fluid in the cartridge, three times over the last couple of years. It seems to relate to a build up of shavings in the unit. To get it working again I inverted the unit, and carefully flushed water via a small tube, back through the 1cm diameter hole in the underside of the open base. Of course, the unit must then be thoroughly dried before use, or the sparks may fly. Does anyone know how to dismantle the unit for a safer and more thorough clean?

    Charging claening unit


    Here is the link to the user manual for your shaver if you need it; http://www.service.braun.com/line/SH/S5493/S5493_14_NA.pdf The release button on the back end of the shaver must activate a couple of small pins or levers that release the mechanism in the base unit to allow the shaver to be removed. If these pins or levers (sorry it isn't clear from the picture) are still moving in and out when you press the release button, the problem is in the base unit. Where these pins/levers would be if the shaver was in the base unit will be the latches that keep the shaver from coming out - it sounds as if one or both of these is broken or stuck - they are probably spring loaded, so a gentle poke with a small screwdriver or similar may free the latch. if they are not obviously broken or stuck, then the problem may be with the springs. this may well be easily fixable depending on how keen you are to take the unit apart yourself. Braun offer a two year warranty on this item, and even out of warranty their service is normally excellent - contact them on; http://www.braun.com/na/contact/servicepartners/americas.country.html?country=United States of America If you wish to try to fix it yourself and want some more help, please post again. Hope this helps :)
