Question about Braun Series 5 570cc Cordless Rechargeable Mens Shaver

1 Answer

My Braun Series 5 shaver constantly beeps when not charging. The mechanism in the shaver head area also moves slightly with each beep! If I reconnect it to the mains it stops. Has anyone else met with

I considered whether there may have been water damage but I believe the shaver is designed to be washed through. It is less than 2 years old so I presume the internal battery should still be ok and it has always lasted well between charges. I can just return it but what do I do without my only shaver?

    The battery still lasts a long time on one charge and the beeps are intermittent. Access at the bottom seems to be via a screw head with a star pattern. I will try Braun UK to see if they will replace under warranty. Thanks for all suggestions.

    Curiously, if I plug in the mains lead when NOT attached to the mains supply the beeping stops! Weird.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your comments. I had suspected the battery and circuit board now you mention it. However, the razor is presently ok so the fault seems intermittent. My supplier has offered to undertake a repair but i was hesitant to send it when no fault is apparent. I have now bought a cheap Braun 340 in case i do need to send it away. Thanks again."

    I have tried wet shaving for 18 months or so but my face hates it. Spots and soreness even using the best of blades and creams/foams, whatever.

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: "".

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. 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!

Understandable as most shavers are not really made to receive messages, unless you have the special fbi secret shaver which is designed to be a secret 2 way radio. Can you confirm whether your model number starts with the code fbi?

I've purchased new blades twice for a razor that is less than a year old. the blades get clogged (nasty) and won't wash out with warm water. how can i clean these blades?

This is a major problem with Arcitec shavers. You and thousands of other have found out too late that the blades can not be removed for manual cleaning. Unfortunately, there is no good solution. You can try running the shaver under hot wateror running the shaver with the heads dipped in rubbing alcol. You can also try picking out the 'gunk' with a toothpick. You will probably only find these to provide minimal results.

If you find that you still must replace the heads, you will fin tham at See link below

Water left over in machine

firstly if it is less than 2 years old you should still have some kind or warrenty left so you should be able to have any repairs done by an enginer at no cost however if you are wishing to try to resolve the problem yourself i would 1st advise that you check the drainige pipe is not kinked or has been pushed into the waist to far making it hard for the pump to extract all the water if these checks dont fix your problem then you may have a pump or sensor issue if so just check your warrenty as most apliances come with either 3 or 5 year warrentys so you will get this repair for free.

Hope this helps

Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes

There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

depends... some units heat the water for you in which case it would not matter and would infact save you money over time. If your unit does not heat the water your going to want to leave it alone for better cleaning performance. Check your owners manual to find out whether it heats the water or not.

Washing machine woes

Buy a new machine. You have used it well. After Two repairs I suggest replacements

Since you are not paying for water I would suggest a top loader. I have been Happy with Kenmore (Whirlpool in Kenmore skin) or look at a Speed Queen Top loader.

Dont over load your new machine, learn what it can and cant handle.

Best of Luck T
