Question about Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver

Open Question

My Braun 8595 Cleaning base is clogged

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?

    Similar problem with my 8985. Base charges fine but when I press the button to clean, it says the cartridge is empty and stops. New full cartridge is installed.

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?

SOURCE: Shaver will not charge or clean in the base

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.

SOURCE: Braun 8585 shaver, charges fine,

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

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 shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Clean and Renew stand for braun 8595 does not seem to cycle properly...after shaving and placing in unit, it randomly seems to clean and is stuck on cleaning cycle (normal light blinking, no charge) I then...


The circuit board on the shaver may have become faulty. One thing you can try is to fully charge the shaver first, directly connected to the outlet, and then try using the cleaning base. Also, be sure that the fluid level is sufficient. Lastly, you may be able to buy a used but working condition cleaning station off of eBay. New replacements are a bit costly.

Just replaced motor assembly now always shows liquid in cleaning station empty even with new cartrige


The motor assembly and the fluid level indicators are completely independent components and any coincidence between the timing of the problem with the cleaning base and your repair of the motor unit is likely pure coincidence. More likely, the cleaning base is at fault and will need replaced.

Can I repair a cleaning unit (5468) for a Braun 8595 shaver? I think I pulled it out before releasing it from the clean function!


Does the cleaning station no longer recognize the shaver? If so, it's possible that the contacts have been bent out of position. It's a bit tricky to fix, though. You'll need to take the unit apart and then bend the contacts back into position. Alternatively, you can buy used but working examples of these cleaning stations off of eBay.

Shaver locked into base


Push down on the blue switch that activates the cleaning system. The switch should be flush with the rim of the cleaning well in order to release the razor.
