I can not get the cutter block to stay inside the razor. When I remove the shaver foil to clean the cutter block it sticks in the top of the shaver foil. It will not stay put in the razor. I have tried buying a new shaver foil and cutter block but it still won't stay inside the razor. Seems as if something inside the razor is missing or damaged.

Hello Brian, You can give the folks at www.electricshaver.com a try. They typically stock all the replacement and repair parts for most brands of electric shavers.
Here's a link to their site where you'll find part #5646768 for about $38 for a new set of the cutter head and foil (screen). It's always best to replace BOTH the foil and cutter block (head) at the same time, as any mircro burrs or nicks in the cutter blades will quickly ruin any new foil screen.
The one piece motor drive which also contains the shaver head in the Braun wear out. They can be replaced by yourself or a shaver tech. A good place for parts, 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.
This is covered in the owner's manual. You can't use the solution, but you can clean the razor without it.
For a quick clean, press the buttons on the sides of the head to release the foil-- but don't remove it. The foil pops up just enough to create openings at the ends of the cutter block. Turn the shaver sideways, hold it over the sink or trash can, and run it for a few seconds. Click the foil back down into place.
For a thorough cleaning, remove the foil and clean the block and foil with a brush (such as the one included with the shaver), then reinstall the foil.
Good luck finding the the base. If you give up the search, I do see that they're available separately for far less than the entire package.
