According to the Braun manual for your 5414 Contour, the specs for charging are printed on the electric shaver cord plug. (it's REALLY small print, so I'd get a magnifying lens to look at it!)

There isn't anything in the manual about the multiple voltage for charging the shaver, so I'd have to defer to the Braun (Gillette/Proctor & Gamble) customer service folks to make absolutely certain of what can and can't be used as a charging voltage before trying.

Here's a link to your manual, in case you're missing yours.

You can ALSO reach the Braun Customer Service folks by calling them at 1-800-BRAUN 11 (1-800-272-8611)

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My braun Contour 5790 does not charge in either the cleaning stand or by the cord alone. Can you help me in this dilema?


It my be the batteries but they usually go bad very gradually and you should still be able to use it from the cord. It sounds more like a problem with the circuit board.

I suggest that you first find out if it can be covered under warranty. You can call an authorized service center at 847-869-7755. They can tell by the date code on it when it was made. If it was made less than 2 years ago. you shouldn't need your receipt.

Shaver suddenly stopped working


I had the same problem with mine right after the two year warranty expired.

BUT I FIXED IT!!!

The problem seems to be bad engineering. Apparently the cleaning solution works its way into the circuit board of the shaver.

I took the razor apart (you need very small phillips screwdrivers), there are six screws. First remove the foils, then the blades (just pull them up). Two screws are where the head rotates. after removing the head, there are two more screws underneath the head. There are two more screws on the bottom under plastic caps beside the charging terminal. You can now gently slide the razor's hardware out of the case by pulling up on the head mounting arms while holding the case as you normally would shaving. (This sounds confusing but should be obvious as you do it.)

Looking at the circuit board i noticed some white residue on the board. I gently cleaned the board with small amount of alcohol and q-tips, being careful not to catch any cotton on the components of the board. At this point you can at least confirm that the motor is not burnt out and the batteries are charged by placing a flathead screwdriver between the positive terminal of the battery and the motor. It should come on if the motor and batteries are okay.

Next you hit the reset button at the bottom-front, then see if it comes on using the on/off button. You can do this step with the razor disassembled or assembled.

Hopefully this works for you. Now if only i could figure out a way to clean and refill the cartridges instead of paying $5 for 5 cents worth of cleaning fluid.

Non cleaning razor


Dear Freddofrog,
please ensure you have removed the plastic plugs from the cleaning fluid container. If you have removed these i would suggest that the fluid contaner is faulty, your place of purchase should exchange this for you with no problem.

Clean Cycle Never Ends


i have the same issue but the charge/clean light on the razor itself wont come on or charge at all. Braun said to send it in for repair/exchange and to find out whats wrong with it.
