Re: Loose Latch - does not lock

I had the same problem - my fix is simple, cheap and works great - obtain some of those double sided hook and loop (Velcro) straps used to tie cables in a neat bundle - the 3/8" - 1/2" wide version works best, these are approx 4" long and usually black in color - costs approx $2 for a package of 10 straps.

Cut off a piece from one of the straps, approx 1" long and glue this to on side of the neck of the charging base. Glue the reverse side of the remainder of the Velcro strap to the other side of the neck, position it with enough length to go over the top of the push in plug (when closed), at the top of the neck, and cover the full length of the first piece of Velcro glued to the other side of the neck + remember allow some additional length so you can easily grab the end of the long piece to release the Velcro grip and let the plug raise clear of the razor.

When the glue is dry, pull the long end over the top and position it to hold the neck plug completely down, and be retained by the first piece of Velcro on the neck - trim the long piece to length, remember you need a little extra length, to make releasing the Velco grip easier. I just pull on the long end of the Velcro, this closes the plug into the razor and simply push the Velcro together to start the cleaning process - simple and cheap.

Mine has been working for years.

****** of hinge assembly stuck

If the latch has been pushed down without a blade on it you will need to get a flat head screw driver. Push up the blade lock and put the screwdriver behind the the tongue on the hinge. While pushing up on the latch push the tongue out with the screw driver. If you need any add'l assistance please call the Andis customer service dept at 1-800-558-9441.

Cutting blade doesn't move

could be the spring is faulty on thie hinge assembly or the tip of the latch has brocken off not securing the blades to the clipper, either way check to see if the blade will disconnect from the clipper without depressing the latch. related clipper parts can be found at

The blade lock is not locking . When you put pressure on the blades they pop off

Most makes of clipper including Oster, Andis, Wahl have a latch which is depressed to release the blades. The latch is commonly situated under the hinge assembly and holds the blade with a simple hook at the tip which catches on the blades.
If the blades will pull off without depressing the latch, chances are the tip has broken off and will require replacement.
Undo the two screws securing the hinge into place and remove both parts, when fitting the new latch make sure the spring ends of the hinge locate through the holes on either side of the latch.

Pop up cutter wont lock down and only one cutter works ,I dissasembled it and fount that on the cutterthat did not work that there were two hold down ears on that cutter were broke loose from the plastic...

Same thing happened to me. I took it apart and got it fixed but then could not get it to lock down (wouldnt go down the whole way) There is a plastic that locks it down (if that is broken your out of luck)--and springs that pop it up. The key to getting it back in place is to push it down very evenly straight so that both of the metal rods go directly into each of their respective holes.

Run but will not cut

Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.

The razor head comes loose from the two arms.

I had a similar problem where one of the side covers popped off. I was able to reattach it, by carefully aligning the spring and pushing back into place. If you've lost the pin, you're out of luck. Braun does not make these kinds of parts available for user servicing, unfortunately.

However, the 7000 series models are all compatible with each other in terms of motor, battery, and razor head armature. You could try locating a moderately used example on the cheap (maybe less than $20) and then cannibalize it for the parts you need.

Do NOT send it off to Braun for servicing, as you will be charged much more than the shaver is worth. If it comes to that, you're better off just going with an 8000 series shaver.

The cleaner mechanism will not lock in place when the razor is placed into the cleaner.

You can check the little catches that is made of stainless steel, and see if you can reshape them slightly to catch and lock the shaver again. Sometimes they can become a little out of shape/bent from pulling the shaver out of the cleaner base. You can try to use a screw driver to carefully push the spring catches back in shape.

Braun 7526 shaver switch

Managed to fix it - actually was a 7680. Only do this if you:

1. have a small screwdriver set

2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again

3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely

4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it

THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.


a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open

b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver

c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver

d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display

e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)

f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here

g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch

h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.

i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.

j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.

Braun latch

I had the same problem.  Press the blue button to make the "head" of the charging mechanism pop up (probably already stuck this way), then pull it up slowly but firmly.  It should pop out with little difficulty.  Keep pulling it up until you've removed the entire head from the charger, but make sure you don't pull far enough to yank out the wire that attaches the head to the charger base.
You will expose a spring housed in a white tube on the base of the charger.  Pull out the spring, then reassemble.  The head won't pop up automatically anymore, but you'll be able to pop it up by hand--an easy tradeoff for a working clean and charge!
