Re: Motor does not start.

I have a philips 925 about 15 years old.

Have had batteries inside my shaver (2 AA batteries) replaced by people who do battery repacking. Nickel metal hydride batteries far better than original NiCad.

My shaver would work while still plugged in to power (but not on batteries) but this may not be possible to try with some of the newer designs. New batteries fixed the problem.

I am looking for a manual for a Philishave Model 805 electric shaver. How do you know when the shaver is fully charged. The green light is always on solid from start to finish

I don't believe that there is an on-line model for this model as it is an older model. The charge time for this model is 16 hours. There is no indicator to tell you when it is done.

Red LED stays on

Sounds like the rechargeable batteries are aged out, and no longer able to develop a full charge, and soon will be needing replacement.
A repair center might likely do it for you for a fee, but see "Self Repair" on site:

Red L.E.D light won't stop flashing

Shaving head check indication After two years of use the red shaving unit symbol î will flash for 30 seconds during 7 shaves to indicate that you should check the condition of the shaving heads. This indication is based on an average shaving time of 3 minutes per shave. When the shaving head symbol flashes, all other symbols and lights are out. When the shaver is switched off, the shaving unit symbol disappears. When the red shaving unit symbol starts flashing, you should check the shaving heads for possible damage. If the shaving heads are damaged in any way, they must be replaced in order to obtain optimal shaving results

Braun Shaver 360 Complete #8985

the 110 plugin goes into a circuit which changes AC to DC for charging the internal NiCad batteries. If there is NO charge whatsoever in the batteries, the shaver will not work. If you have any electronics background a simple test with a VOM will determine if the bridge rectifier is putting out any DC.[you must disassemble the shaver] If you have no experience on circuits take it to a repair location.
