Question about Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver
When I put the shaver in to the base it communicates with the base, but When I push the button to lock and clean the shaver, it sounds as if it is pumping the solution but everything is dry and the shaver is still dirty. Is there a way of unblocking the intake?
SOURCE: cleaning base
I have been shaving with electric razors for 48 years, and the Braun 8595 is by far the best one yet.
I have had the problem of the refusal of the cleaning station to recognize the level of fluid in the cartridge, three times over the last couple of years. It seems to relate to a build up of shavings in the unit. To get it working again I inverted the unit, and carefully flushed water via a small tube, back through the 1cm diameter hole in the underside of the open base. Of course, the unit must then be thoroughly dried before use, or the sparks may fly. Does anyone know how to dismantle the unit for a safer and more thorough clean?

All you have to do is take the base apart. Turn it upside down, and there are two plastic clips on the rear portion of the base. Press them in with a key or screwdriver and wiggle the base a bit to remove the inner portion from the outer shell. Make sure you unplug the unit and remove the cleaning cartridge before doing this. Once it is apart, place a small wedge underneath the portion of the electric contact that sticks out to touch the shaver, and press the back of that portion out so that it slightly bends the contact strip and makes it stick out a little further. Then remove the wedge and put the base back together. It will work again, as the contacts can now protrude to touch the shaver and run the cleaning and charging cycle.

The problem is the base, not the shaver. Most likely, the circuit board inside the base has gotten wet and is damaged. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced. You will find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

8585 shaver gave higher tone and stopped cutting especially after a few days growth, even with new cutter and foil. Cutter wasn't pressing against the foil properly due to a bit of wear on the spring clip holding the cutter pin. Fixed with about 1cm of cigarette paper moistened and rolled into a 1-2mm ball. Stuffed that into cutter pin hole and rammed home with the cutter pin. Take the foil off and wiggle the cutter - if its feels loose, this might help, though the battery might just be getting old.
