I have a Braun 7570 and it is marvelous! I replace foil and cutter every year. This time after replacing it the shaver did not cut my hair. Battery still gets full charge. What is the problem?


Most likely, the 'drive unit' is bad. The drive unit is a component that consists of the swivel frame that the head snaps onto and the motor. Excessive noise while the shaver is running is also a major sign that this part is bad.
Unfortunately, Braun no longer provides these type of replacement parts for any of their shavers. You may end up needing to replace the unit.
Since you apparently like that model and you have spare shaver heads for it, you might want to consider a compatible model as a replacement. shaveroutlet.com has a new model that uses the same foils and cutters as your 7570. You can see it at the link below

Not shaving close enough.


This problem is usually cause by a worn out shaving head (foil and cutters). Braun suggests that you change these every 12-18 months for best performance. You will find replacements at shaveroutlet.com for your model 4501 Braun shaver. See link below.

It is also possible that your shaver is running too slowly due to an old battery if you've never replaced it. If you require a new battery, it can also be ordered from shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-battery-aa-nimh-p-108.html

To change the battery you will need to be able to do a little soldering. Open the shaver by removing the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver and then the screws underneath. You will also need to remove the foil and cutters and then the swivel frame which is attached by two tiny screws. Once removed, you will be able to open the shaver from the bottom and seperate the front and back. Remove the circuit board to easily get to the battery.
Note: The tabs on this type battery will work for most applications however they may be slightly different than some original equipment. For these instances, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather that removing them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can them solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Does Braun grant warrantees on broken parts?


Most Braun shavers are warranted for 2 years. The warranty covers the entire shaver except for the foils and cutters. No manufacturer covers the foils and cutters.
If you believe that your problem is covered by the warranty, call Braun at 1-800-272-8611 for assistance.
If your foil and/or cutter is worn out, you will simply need to replace them. You will find these parts at shaveroutlet.com

Shaver started making a much louder buzzing sound, no longer shaves as well and now hurts a bit to use. Can this be fixed?


Hello Robert, It sounds like the foil screen might have been damaged and is causing poor shaving performance. Typically, a screen will get small holes or tears in it after providing good service for some years, however, these very thin screen foils, can get damaged other ways too.

The best way to restore the best shaving performance is to replace both the foil screen AND the cutter head block (cutter head) as it could be possible that the cutter blades have become damaged or nicked and have caused the foil screen to become damaged, as a result.

I would contact www.electricshaver.com and see if you can purchase a new set of the cutter block head and the screen foil for your particular Braun shaver model. As the Braun 360 is a tradename used on a couple of different model numbers, you really need the four (4) digit model number in order to locate the correct replacement parts.

Here's a link to their page with the various Braun replacement cutter blocks and foil screens. You might find your model number amoung them, otherwise, you can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and ask them to assist you with selecting the proper replacement parts.

http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_list_125.htm

As you are no doubt aware, replacing the cutter head and foil screen is the best and simplest way to restore an electric shaver to a like new shaving condition and much less expensive than replacing the entire shaver.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Head (foil and blades) used to last 10-12 months. Now they last about six weeks. I don't hink I have done anything different when shaving. Braun Syncro is abotu four years old.


Six weeks? That's very peculiar. Are you certain that they are seated properly on the shaver? If there's a problem with the head and they're not fitting into place slightly off, they can end up wearing out faster.

If you've used your shaver for a number of years, your best bet is to probably step up to a newer model Braun shaver. The 7000 series was OK, but the 8000 series is much better. You can still pick up new old stock ones off "that auction site". They shave not much differently from the new 9000 series (Pulsonic). Good luck!

Need a new foil for model 5479 Braun electric shaver


This particular Braun shaver was made in both a US and European version. They are similar, but take slightly different cutter blocks and foil screens, sooooooo

If you bought your shaver in the US, then you can get a replacement foil here for around $8.00 or you can find another supplier of your choosing.

http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=4997848

If you bought your shaver in the UK, then a replacement is available on Amazon.com (UK site) for quite a bit more in British pounds.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My shaver is approximately 3years old and it "bites" me. What do you think it needs? and where can I get help in the Central Coast of California.Thank you.


HI. Have you ever changed the foil or cutter? You'll find a world of difference when you change them. It's recommend you change them every 18 months (as specified on the packet).

Your model is the Syncro which takes a 30B/Series 3 - 7000/4000 Series foil/cutter. You should be able to locate by doing a Google search.

Otherwise try http://www.braun.com/us/consumer-service.html?country=United+States+of+America&continent=am&action=country

Braun Synchro 7680 - "Oil" message


Had the same problem on my shaver too. Bought this product:
http://www.onlineshavers.com/pd_braun_8000_activator_foil_cutter_pack31.cfm

(I know the link says foil cutter, but it takes you to Braun lubricating oil!)

I apply the lubricating oil to the foil etc, then the word "oil" disappears. Then after a while the word "oil" comes back and I apply the oil again and so on, my shaver still performs normally.

Hope this helps.
