Philips HS8020/18 Shaver Red Light

Shaver battery is fine, it charges but doesn't turn on. It displays a red light constantly, no flashing. I've tried the 3-5 seconds holding down the button to see if it has a travel lock feature, Didn't work. I've take it apart and took the motor out, red light stays on still, attached another motor, red light still and doesn't power on. I know the battery is good as it has been a red light for 3 days and when I plug it in to charge, it glows green to state it is charging.

SOURCE: My shaver doesn't stay charged very long

The motor is fine, what happens is that the internal battery loses the ability to fully charge and run the motor for a long period of time. While you "could" change the battery out with a newer one using solder, it's unlikely that it would cost less than buying a newer model at the store or from ebay. The average life of good shavers made a few years ago was about 3-5 years due to the type of batteries in it. I used mine with a charging cord for a while but that became an issue once while traveling. I bought a new one.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Norelco shaver 6866XL won't charge, light glowsred

The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.

SOURCE: I no longer have the owners manual. What does it

According to the manual, the red light comes on while charging when the battery does not yet have enough charge to sustain a 3-5 minute shave. The green light stays on steady while the razor is charging, and blinks when it is fully charged. If your battery life is short, they might need to be changed.

When fully charged the red light comes on immediately and the shaver does not start.


Use your warranty to have it repaired. Either the charge circuit or the batteries are faulty.

Why have I got a red light on the bottom of my shaver when I am using it


It is common for many Braun shavers, that if the indicator light flashes red while the shaver is being used (switched on and running), it means the battery is low and needs to be charged soon.

Below is an example from a manual for a Braun model 7526 shaver. You can search that site for other manuals if this is not the correct one.

This model shaver has 3 indicator lights:
1) Green (Charging)
2) Red (Low battery)
3) Blue (Power cord attached and plugged into the wall)

Download the manual for the model 7526 here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/20281/Braun-5301.html#manual

"The green charging light shows that the
shaver is being charged. When the rechargeable
battery is fully charged, the charging light
flashes or goes off.

If later on, the charging light comes on
again, this indicates that the shaver is
being recharged to maintain its full
capacity.

The red low-charge light flashes when the
battery capacity has dropped below 20%,
provided the shaver is switched on. The
remaining capacity will then be sufficient
for 2 to 3 shaves."

My Phillips arcitec has a red light blinking at the very bottom of my shaver. I've had the shaver for 3 years.


It's means that you change new replacement heads. That philips arcitec 1060 electric shaver replacement heads is Norelco RQ10 shaving heads.

Red light at bottom flashes even when razor ids fully charged. What can causrethis?


When the battery is almost empty (when there are only 5 or fewer shaving minutes left), the battery symbol lights up red.

Make sure that the battery does not have a memory effect. What I suggest is taking the shaving head unit off and running the shaver till empty, then recharging. Check if the red light is still flashing.

There's also a head indicator at the bottom of some shavers.

To remind you to replace the shaving unit, the shaving unit symbol flashes (all types) and you hear a beep when you switch off the shaver (RQ1090 only). This happens at the end of 7 successive shaves to remind you to replace the shaving unit.

Without knowing what model you have it's difficult to diagnose further.
