Question about Braun Flex XP II 5790 Electric Shaver
My husband went too long between changes of cleaning solution (he is deployed and couldn't get his hands on any) and now even with fresh solution when he tries to clean the razor, the cleaning solution floods up into the base and won't drain back down.
He's looked for some obvious hole that's blocked with gunk but can't seem to find anything to clean out. We can buy a replacement base but they are $50 - might as well get a new shaver. I'd love to get the one we having working again and send this shaver back to my husband in the desert.
OK, Remove shaver from cleaning base. Raise top cover as if you are going to replace the cleaning cartridge. Now, look into the cleaning cup where you put the shaver into.You will notice a small hole on the bottom left side. With a Q-tip ,clean out the beard hair from the hole.If you have a model 5301 which is located on the bottom of the base, you should be able to push the Q-tip all the way through the hole. This will allow the liquid to flow back down into the cartridge.This is whats causing the overflow.
