Re: cleaning solution .

I've heard of other people refilling the cleaning cartridge with other solutions rather than buying a new one. I understand the genuine article contains a lubricant as well as a solvent. You might have to manually lubricate the cutter head if you use a solution that does not include lubricant.

Re: cleaning solution .

From my understanding of chemistry, the cleaning cartridge label reads SD alcohol plus detergent. Translation: Slowly Denatured (80%+) Rubbing Alcohol plus mild detergent. I haven't had a problem yet. I see no rusted blades. Cytherian's advice is well taken; those cartridges are costly for what they offer.

Re: cleaning solution .

Do NOT use any other fluids in the cleaning base other than what Braun supplies.

However, be advised that Braun encourages you to use this solution far more than is really necessary. I just tap out the whisker debris after each use, then use the cleaning solution once every couple of weeks. After cleaning, remove the cartridge and cap it off. You need to do this otherwise the cleaning solution evaporates. The result of doing this? I install a new cleaning cartridge about once a year, rather than once a month!

The top will not stay down for charging

This is a common problem with the clean/charge base for model 7526. The mechanism inside is broken. You can replace the upper housing that includes the locking arm or you can replace the whole system. Both options are available at See links below

It will not hold a charge from the stand but will from the cord directly. it also does not clean properly model syncro 7526

The stands for these Syncro models are notorious for breaking. If your shaver charges direcly fom the cord but not the base, it sounds like there is an electrical problem with the base...probably the circuit board is bad. Parts that you would need to fix it are no longer availale from Braun. You will need to replace the unit. You will find a replacement at See link below

Can't get the 7526 cleaning arm to stay down on the shaver for charging, cleaning, etc. Is there a sequence e.g. hold the arm down then select a cycle, or select then push down? What is the blue button...

The locking mechanism in the arm is broken. This is a common problem with your model. To repair it you will need to purchase a replacement part. You will find the part at See link below

If repairing your existing clean and charge machine is not an option, you will find the entire machine available at the link below

My Braun 7526 will no longer clip into the razor for cleaning and charging.

If the arm on the charging stand no longer locks down into place to charge the shaver, you will need to replace the arm or you can replace the entire charging unit. You will find both items at See links below<br /> <br /> arm only<br /> <a href=""></a><br /> <br /> <br /> complete base<br /> <a href=""></a>
