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.

SOURCE: wet/dry Panasonic shaver stopped

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

SOURCE: I have a new ES-LA93

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.

SOURCE: my panasonic vortex, when in cleaning mode, does

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.

Panasonic ES-LV81 electric razor with self cleaning recharger won't go into clean cycle only dry.

If you take the cleaning unit to pieces you will find a tiny microswitch that detects that the cleaning cartridge is in situ. This switch is fed by 2 brown wires. The microswitch is prone to get water on it and then malfunctions. Unless you are adept enough to find a new one and fit it, in my opinion the only way around this problem is to snip one of the brown wires and re-assemble the unit.
Effectively this is overriding the units ability to sense that the cleaning cartridge is in position!
As long as you remember to NEVER run the unit without the cartridge in situ, the wash and dry cycle should work fine.

Best Regards.

I need a battery for Panasonic E366 electric shaver. Anyone know where to get one?

Panasonic does not market these specialized batteries to be sold. You can only have the battery changed by the Panasonic service center in New York or San Francisco and it will cost you more to have it replaced than you paid for the shaver.
I suggest that you simply purchase the shaver that replaced this model. It uses the same foil and cutter as model ES366 and works the same way too. You will find it at at the link below

Rechargeable battery

Hi, try looking on ebay, user name; itl-e. His shop name is; Component-shop. A wide range of batteries supplied including a 6V 5AH which sells for about £8 including p&p. Your Panasonic battery is rated at 6V 4.2AH, so the replacement will last slightly longer between charges. If you want an exact (Panasonic) replacement, try putting "Panasonic LC-R064R2CH into google.
Hpoe this helps! Bob.
