One or more of the shaving heads is stuck on the blade foil. The latter is very delicate and wears. If there is a break in the foil often a metal shard intrudes into the path of the moving blades and it gets stuck. Remove the foil and turn on shaver - if it runs it is the foil that has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Braun electric shaver will not charge.

Your batteries are no longer capable of being recharged and need to be replaced.

If you are handy and can dissemble and solder, you can do this yourself, otherwise, you can send it off to a repair service that will do this for you.

If you wish to do this yourself, you'll have to take the shaver apart. There are two (2) small plastic caps on the bottom of the shaver that can be removed with a small pick or flatbladed screwdriver. Once those are out, you can unscrew the two screws that hold the shaver together and gently pry off the side panels.

This will expose the internal circuit board and the rechargable batteries that need to be unsolded. You can then reinstall NEW rechargable batteries and solder them onto the PCB (printed circuit board). You can also purchase a complete internal PCB with the batteries and everything you need, you just swap out the electronics for the new one, although this costs about $39, while the batteries alone are much less.

Put the shell together and reinstall the retaining screws and caps and you're done.

Here's a link to get the replacement batteries for your shaver. They also do the repair service, if you don't want to do it yourself.

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.

The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.

When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.

Here's a reference for your future use. www.electricshaver.com carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.

Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.

I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: My Braun shaver 8585 has died. Foil, cable, box,

If I understand correctly, the shaver is dead but all other components are in good condition. If this is the case, you should consider ordering a replacement lower unit. See shaveroutlet.com link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-8585-activator-lower-unit-p-364.html

Newer models made by Braun do not use all the same parts as your shaver so this would be a good way to go

How can I clean my braun washable series 3 (330) shaver. better. I can take it apart so far but just cant get under the blades


This model uses a 'shaving cassette'. The blades can not be removed from the foil assembly. Braun's instruction is to simply rense the shaving head under hot running tap water. Unfortunately, this does not work very well over time due to the poor design of these parts. Once they become clogged up it is usually necessary to replace the cartridge.
If replacement is needed you will find one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Bought a Braun series 3 razor (#340 wet and dry). It hardly shaves the whiskers but it really messes my skin up. ( I was using a Norelco which did a pretty good job) I think there is something wrong...


You should be able to run your finger over the foil mesh on the Braun shaver to feel if there are any rough spots causing the problem you describe. If there is damage you may also be able to see it.

It could also be that the Braun shaver simply does not agree with your skin type. There are many people who are sensitive to different kinds of shaving methods. Foil shavers like Braun may not be the type of shaver for you

I dropped my 8985 braun and it will no longer shave with the foil head on. It does work if you remove the foil. Did I loose a part?


You probably dented the foil head enough to stop the vibratory action of the blades, thus the working when the foil is removed. Braun has a replacement foil and blade kit sold at Walmart.

My 7540 shaver will only start when it is fully charged. After the first shave it will start only start if I lossen the foil. Do I need a new battery?


Hi, yes these batteries only have a limited life unfortunately. To prolong the life of your battery, always ensure the batery is completely flat before charging and always charge fully but do not leave charger on after charge has completed.
Hope this helps

The circuit board on the shaver may have become faulty. One thing you can try is to fully charge the shaver first, directly connected to the outlet, and then try using the cleaning base. Also, be sure that the fluid level is sufficient. Lastly, you may be able to buy a used but working condition cleaning station off of eBay. New replacements are a bit costly.

Is the Braun Activator8595 a good shaver for extra sensitive skin


The Braun foil shavers are well designed and I find they work well for sensitive skin if you prepare properly. Make sure you apply a hot towel to your face followed by a shaving conditioner. When applying the shaver, press lightly. Don't be afraid to go over the same areas several times to get most of the whiskers. Once you do this for about a week, your skin should begin to adapt to the sensation of electric shaving. You'll then be able to use the shaver more aggressively and get a thorough shave.

Braun 8585 series


I found that the hole that the blade slots into had become worn and the blade was wobbling about too much under the foil. To solve it I wrap a small piece of masking tape around the metal shaft that slots into the hole and then push the blade back firmly into the slot. This seems to result in the blade pushing more firmly against the underside of the foil and giving a shave like new again.
