The drying fan on my Panasonic rc9-13 self cleaning recharger will not work. It will clean the shaver but not dry it.

SOURCE: cleaning problem
I had the same problem. I was able to take the cleaning base apart. There are two little latches on the inside that when popped off, allow the cover to come off. It does however take some massaging to remove the cover. Once this is removed, take all the parts off until you get to the electric motor in the base. My suggestion would be to see where the motor attaches to the PCB and use a DMM to measure the voltage across the motor to see where the (+) terminal is when the motor is supposed to be in use. You will notice that the voltage supplied to the motor is approx 12V. This is the same voltage that the cord supplies (DC). Cut the motor free from the board, and directly attach the power cord ends to the motor terminals to see if the motor spins. You might want to take the motor out of the base for this part. What I noticed to the be the problem is there is a fine line between the where the motor is spinning free, when it turns the gears efficiently, and when it is in too far and binds up (which is more than likely the problem you are having now). Adjust the motors position until the gears turn smoothly. Now you can reattach the motor leads to the PCB. REMEMBER to hook them up in the correct holes, otherwise your motor will pump fuild out instead of pumping it back in. If you wish to test this before fully putting it back together, you will notice that there are two posts near to motor that stick up through the PCB. Those are used to measure the amount of fluid in the container. Simply bridge these with some wire or an alegator clip so that the cleaning base will think that were is a full container of fluid.

My model is almost the same as your model ...
Problem: Model ES7037CMB - Over the past month the Panasonic shaver would turn on with 3-4 tries, but now will not turn on at all – the on-off switch must be bad after only 7 months of wet use. Before sending in I found this diagram:
Disassembly: Remove bottom Phillips screw & end cap, pop off each plastic side with fingernails (reinstall them from top 1st), remove 4 screws, remove 2 clips, take top off. Remove battery case and the on-off little, white plastic lever fell out. Slide off the white plastic/metal on-off slider & clean contacts with knife … my bottom contact was black & top was clean.
Assembly: Reinstall on-off slider (white plastic with metal contacts) by sliding back in grooves -- hardest part - place the on-off plastic lever on the battery back unit – I tried to put it on the case and could not get it to stay on. Slide the battery pack back in with the plug prongs in the holes in the end being careful not to drop the on-off lever. Test shaver. Stuff battery wires inside case – screw 4 screws and add 2 clips on, then final screw in the end after cap placed on. Easy once I knew how to put the on-off lever on the battery side – that was tricky. Total time was about 1 hour – next time it will be about 15 minutes. Works great! jgg 12-27-08. Think I will use it dry from now own since it had a lot of whiskers inside of it and maybe wash only the head as needed with baby shampoo.

Panasonic does not sell the specialized batteries for their shavers. Your best bet would be to purchase one of the models that replaced it. I have included links to two models below. These are very similar to model ES4011 and use the same shaver head as your model

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. Appreciated!"

If you clean the razor every day, the CLEAN and DRY lights flash repeatedly to show you that the cleaning has completed. You should be able to confirm that this is correct by NOT cleaning it one day. You should see that those lights don't flash then. I know this because I clean the razor twice a week rather than every day. On the days that I clean it, the lights flash. On the days that I don't clean it, the lights don't flash.

Probably due to wire being cut inside cleaner. My cleaning system charges, and the indicator lights for cleaning and charging light up, but I don't believe water is flushed through system. Took apart and found broken wire. Working to replace wire and reassemble, but having issues with disassembly so I can replace wire.
Nice razors, but not as durable as the older models.
