It sounds like one of the blades may be damaged or not seated correctly. Try turning on the shaver with the top flipped up. If it is not noisy with the top up you can assume that its a problem with the heads.
Take the heads out one at a time and turn on the shaver each time. You can then determine if one is a problem and which one.

Most of the time what something stops completely, you check the cable and connectors. If they are ok, perhaps something got lose in the shaver, but if you are not in electrics, better start save in for a new shaver.

I have a Norelco 5822 XL cordless electric shaver. Suddenly it went dead and wouldn't take a charge. I took it to Batteries plus where the salesman said the batteries were completely dead. He changed the...

If the old batteries were corroded, that may have damaged the circuit board. If the batteries were getting hot before the shaver died, the heat may also have damaged the circuit board. It is also very possible that the salesperson did not do a good job installing them as they are not trained in replacing batteries in shavers.
