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?

Is there any place I can send my toothbrush for repairs?

Braun is the market leader in eclectic toothbrushes and have service centres. I bought a Colgate Spinbrush which was less that $20 CDN. I also use a disposable Sonic toothbrush which has about $6 CDN. I would jump ship and buy new.

Electric rechargeable braun toothbrush 500

I had the same problem at the beginning of the year. I think i had bought 3 electric tooth brushes and all seemed to cave in within a couple of weeks. My friend recommended going to Macy's to buy one, which I did and it is still going strong. Maybe you charged it for a very long period of time and it overheat the system circuit? I'm not sure but I would recommend getting a new toothbrush.

My braun toothbrush will not charge it is the 5. in a year. I am very fed up with Braun Oral B. Why is it not charging. Bought this one 5 weeks ago.

Have you left it to charge for a long period of time? Maybe it overheated the power source? If you cant get it to work I would suggest buying at Macy's. They seem pretty reliable and have good warranty's for these sort of things.

I have purchased a Braun proffessional care electric toothbrush and cannot charge it. I have tried three different plug adapters. I have changed the toothbrush at Boots 3 times. I have tried to charge it...

Your electrical socket may be wrongly wired, with polarity mixed up. Try another socket. Also, some electric toothbrushes need to be "off" to successfully charge. Maybe the flasing red light for 10 seconds is telling you the toothbrush is "on" and not accepting charge.

How do I get my toothbrush charger repaired

Some of them are sealed units and can be repaired only by breaking it open. If this is a cordless type then the transformer can be faulty. It is also possible that the winding of the inducction coil on the hand held is also faulty. If corded type then a replcement adapter can be suited with the saem volt/amp specifications.
Other option is to get the replacement from the dealer.

Braun Oral-B Triumph Professional Toothbrush won't shut off...

I think I may have just found issue with the problem, and that is that the inside of the unit has got wet. I suggest taking the casing off of the tooth brush and let it completely dry out, then test the unit. Hopefully this will fix your problem
