Question about Norelco Health & Beauty
I had to unsolder it to get it to stop. The stop button on the circuit board did not stop the razor from running. Any suggestions?
Check the ends of the batteries nearest the motor. If the batteries are touching the leads to the motor, this will supply constant power to the motor.
If you batteries were seriously corroded, it may have traveled to the switch and ruined it

Just de-solder the red and black wires and pull out the battery. Put it in a plastic bag to stop it shorting out on anything metal or cover the terminals with tape. The battery must be recycled properly as it contains toxic cadmium. As long as the battery is not leaking then it poses no threat to you. Refitting the new battery is just as simple, re-solder the red wire to the +terminal and black to the -terminal. Be sure to charge the razor as you would a new one i.e. 8 hours. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Norelco shaver won't turn off
You should check the switch behind the batteries. You likely dislodged the piece of plastic that presses on the switch. It's simple to place back properly--if that's what the problem is.

To open up your shaver, remove the lotion cover and remove all 5 screws with a small flat head screwdriver. They have a star head, but also a flat notch. Since they shaver is water tight, the first time you open it up it will be difficult, but if you pry off with your screwdriver it should pop off.
Towards the head of the shaver the batteries are soldered to the circuit board. Pull the tail end of the batteries out of the plastic holder and cut them at the top end as close to the batteries as you can, or CAREFULLY bend it back and forth to snap the metal. Dispose of the batteries responsibly as you would any batteries.
Hope it helps you.

it sounds like you may have some sloppy solder which is causing a continuous connection here there shouldnt be

Your original symptoms sure sound like dying batteries. Brushes can wear out. Check if it runs better if you change the orientation of the shaver. Does holding it upside down make it work better or worse? If the speed changes, its probably the brushes. You can buy new brushes, but the Norelco repair place will probably give you a hard time since they want to repair it for you so you have to insist. I have made brushes for the shaver by filing down brushes from some other motor, but this is messy and doesn't always work.
