Braun Toothbrush repair?

I'm not sure if this is OT but hope not. Is it possible to repair a Braun Ultra toothbrush? They appear totally sealed but I suspect the base is removable. The one I have appears to charge properly, but only works intermittently or sometimes refuses to work at all. I'd like to clean it inside. Or is this another example of 'throw-away culture'? -- Any help TIA Please reply to Newsgroup Hi, I removed the inner body from the brush and accidentaly broke the coil (I disconnected it from the rest of the brush's inner body). Now I am left with: A bottom cap, a coil, a conical spring, a hard washer and a rubber washer, and the rest upper part of the inner body. I have tried putting the coil in the cap, then the hard washer, then the spring and connecting the coil ending with the spring, so it connects to the bottom of the battery, but this still doesn't allow me to charge the battery (the LED doesn't come on). I have held the end of the coil touching the part where it broke off, while in the charging position, but this doesn't make it charge. Am I doing something wrong? In what order should things be connected? What is the rubber washer for? It is nearly the same size as the hard washer, but thinner... Any help is appreciated. I know I am a fool for openning it in the first place, but I was trying to clean it... Many thanks.... Leo

    Olivier, fantastic, this is exactly what I needed. I tested it while on the charger and it works! I just need to re-solder the ends of the coil and it will be remounted. Many thanks for your help. Leo - Brighton, UK

The Battery is comprised of two 2/3A nicads with spot welded connector tabs. A battery supplier can manufacture this 2.2 volt pack for around $10 US.
To get the battery out first unsolder the two wires from the sides of the circuit board. Then release the three tabs that grip the spring assembly. Next unsolder the bottom -ve battery tab from the bottom end, then unsolder the +ve top tab from the circuit board. You will need a solder ****** to remove all the solder fom the +ve.
You can then push the battery pack out of the tube and put in the new battery pack. To put the bottom of the case back on you have to push it in with the coil wires slightly twisted 1/8 counter cw.
I used a steel ruler in the slots to give good leverage to twist against the force from that spring.

I've just opened up and remounted my Braun toothbrush, an Oral-B model I think.
Your description corresponds.
Order for re-mounting:
Coil, rubber/soft washer, hard washer, spring, ...
The spring has no electrical use: I think it is just used to keep pressure on the washer and improve seal-ness.
The coil has 2 electrical ends, which connect to each (narrow) sides of the small PCB. One of the connections happens to touch the battery holder.

I wanted to replace the battery, but gave up as the battery seems so hard to remove: I don't see how to replace it without destroying everything.
Also, the format is larger than an AA.
Any idea?

Keurig vue stops brewing after a few seconds

Before you take anything apart, which I came close to doing, take a toothbrush to the metal pins/spouts. After running I don't know how many cups of vinegar and letting it sit, it still wouldn't brew more than two ounces. I was going to attempt a fix found on the internet, and I thought, what the heck -- can't hurt. So I took out a new toothbrush and brushed both pins (didn't have to remove anything) and voila! Out came some grounds in a cup of water and it brews the full amount of whatever oz. I choose. Works great, normal and I didn't have to disassemble anything.

Jura f7 clean message wont disappear after running cleaning cycle

First you need to be sure that the cleaning program is completed, if you cancel the program before it`s completed the machine will keep asking for cleaning. If you have tried to run the program several times and the alarm still lights up, then there`s a software problem. The only way to reset this is then to change the Main electronic board, that is very expencive and you should really concider to live with the alarm

Gaggia classic, still drips coffee

Where is the drip for the coffee happening,is it around the portafilter, or the tube hanging in the drain tray on the left, or from the shower in the grouphead.
1- Around portafilter..since the machine is only 2 wks old the it is possible that coffee grounds are on the gasket in the head, get a hard toothbrush or buy a groupbrush and clean group gasket also check for damage.
2- Tube in drain tray...If it is a continuous drip whenever the machine is on then the nucleus in the solenoid is either dirty or damaged, try backwashing the machine. If it happens only when you make a coffee then that is the discharge on the solenoid working. Run a backwash on the group and that will cleann out the discharge.
3- If it is coming from the shower in the group then the solenoid needs to be replaced.

As for the steam wand leak it sounds as though the valve is not closing. That will have to be replaced because it cannot be rebuilt.5547512.jpg

Gusto- water leaks over the grounds instead of filtering through

The holes in the metal coffee ground holder/filter are probably clogged. I have had this happen and it has cleared when I cleaned the holes in the coffee holder. I used the cut off head of a toothbrush and pushed the bristles through the holes. If you hold the filter to the light before and after cleaning, you can see the change in the proportion of closed holes.
