I though your shaver's built in rechargeable batteries are dead and needs to be replaced..
When this battery is dead it stills show as it was charging while you plug it AC , Blue light functions when plugged in but unfortunately the battery does not hold the charge any more and shaver will not work,
My recommendation is to take the shaver to a repair shop to ask for battery status verification and if necessary for replacement.

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.

Braun 8985 replacement foil and blades is braun series 5 combi 51S foil and cutter replacement pack.

But costomer reviews in amazon.com who take braun series 3 combi 30B foil and cutter replacement pack is fits to Braun 8985 perfectly, very smooth and close shave. Shaves much better than the Braun 51S screens foil.

My Braun 8985 is about 5 years old and it worked great until a few months ago. Even when freshly charged, I can barely complete a shave. I don't have a particularly heavy beard, but I can hear the motor...


It sounds like the batteries need replaced. You will find compatible battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two batteries.

You will find a video showing how to open the shaver at shaveroutlet.com also. See link below

For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

If it is intermittent, that sounds like there is a bad connection inside. Braun has a 2 year warranty. If it is only one year old, call Braun at 800-272-8611

I have the Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver, and ive learned that it is pritty much gonna keep being a money hole. Can any one suggest a self cleaning brand that is more reliable?


The self-cleaning shavers are all much more expensive to maintain than traditional non-self-cleaning shavers. Your model 8985 is not inherantly more expensive to maintain than any other self cleaning model by Braun or other brand. The cleaning solution is expensive, the cleaning machines break because of exposure to liquid, and the heads often wear out faster as well.
Because of this, I strongly suggest you buy a shaver without a self cleaning machine. Most models that do not include self cleaning machines are very easy to clean with an old toothbruh dipped in rubbing alcohol. If you liked the way the Braun shaved when it was in good condition, I would suggest the following models linked below as possibilities
