SOURCE: red L.E.D light won't stop flashing

Shaving head check indication After two years of use the red shaving unit symbol î will flash for 30 seconds during 7 shaves to indicate that you should check the condition of the shaving heads. This indication is based on an average shaving time of 3 minutes per shave. When the shaving head symbol flashes, all other symbols and lights are out. When the shaver is switched off, the shaving unit symbol disappears. When the red shaving unit symbol starts flashing, you should check the shaving heads for possible damage. If the shaving heads are damaged in any way, they must be replaced in order to obtain optimal shaving results

SOURCE: Braun 5520 Shaver Stopped Working

The "Braun 5520" doesn't have the 2 screws under 2 small caps on bottom, as described by so many on these boards.
The round plastic plug receptacle 'itself' is the release. (Twist-Release the outer ring.)
Look on the base, where you plug the AC cord in.... Just inside the rim, you will see two small 'recesses', opposite each other, that allow a wedge tool (like a large screw driver) to turn the rim counter-clockwise (left) 45 degrees, releasing the base and housing.
Once this is unlocked, slide the cover off and pop the black retainer cover off to reveal the "PC Board W/Batteries" module/assembly. (Batteries are NOT replaceable by themselves.)
There is a tiny (and I mean "tiny"!) resistor that burns out in the circuit board and causes the majority of power malfunctions in these models.
You can order a new PC Board (with batteries) for approx. $40.00. (+ S&H)
One place is: "http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_5505631_braun-pc-board-w-batteries.htm".
(Fits Models: 5510, 5515, 5520, 6515, 6520, 6510, 6512 - Types: 5505, 5506, 5705, 5706)

Or, find other by Googling "Braun 5520 Circuit board assembly", and/or replace this model with your number.

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: shaver not charging.

The batteries should not really get warm. You may not have a good solder connection
Assuming that the batteries are in correctly with good solder joints, the problem is likely the motor. With the shaver fully assembled, remove just the foil and cutter and then turn the unit on. Use your finger to push the piece of plastic that the cutter fits into back and forth. If it starts and moves slowly or if it stutters, the brushes in the moto are probably bad. Because the motor is a sealer unit, the motor will need replaced. If you require this part, you will find it at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

SOURCE: Norelco/Philips jet clean shaver cleaning bath no longer works

I have had three 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

I have an at890 one of the shafts is sitting a bit lower than the others so its not turning the blade.


It would appear that the gear is broken or the spring is missing. The tiny part is not available for replacement. The least expensive remedy for this would be to purchase the replacement below for only $9.99 at shaveroutlet.com

Elizabeth, If product does not have correct plug for your use, then yes you will need adapter. Most rechargeable products do have a charge light.

Model AT890 requires replacement heads with part number HQ8. If the blades you purchased are not HQ8, you have the incorrect parts. HQ8 blades can be found at shaveroutlet.com at the link below

Philips Shaver Faulty


Replacement under warranty involves promising to remove the battery from the old shaver and disposing of the battery and the carcass in an environmentally safe way.

The shaver can be split apart after removing three torx screws and then prising the plastic parts apart against their clips. Be VERY careful when releasing the plastic clips inside because they are brittle and fragile.

On opening the cover containing the battery, motor and control circuitry the ingress of water was clear. The shaver is supposed to be wet and dry, has only been used dry but the exterior has been washed.

The water was displaced using WD40. The shaver operated normally straight away. If your shaver's motor starts with the button but stops again half a second later, the problem might be caused by water ingress.

Philips at896 stopped working


If it's not in warranty, dissassemble the shaver and check for water inside.

Either dry it out in a warm cupboard or displace the water with WD40
