The best and safest way (if you don't have a multimeter) is to use a torch battery, 3 pieces of wire and a torch globe. Attach wires to the centre terminal of the globe, & one to the globe base. Now cut the wire attached to the globe base and insert the torch battery between the cut ends.This creates a test circuit with the torch globe, & battery in series.There are now two wire ends free. To test your circuit, touch the two free wire end together. If you have done this right. the torch globe will light. To use your tester, touch one wire end to a pin on your shaver wall plug, touch the other wire to a hole in the shave end of shaver cable.If the globe does not light, try the other hole. If it still doesn't light, touch your tester wires together to test it's still working ok. Test the cable again, if no light, you have a broken power cable.
NOTES:
1. For this operation the razor and cable are NOT CONNECTED to the power outlet
2. Use insulated wire and solder them to the torch globe if you can, otherwise use a cheap globe holder from Tandy

When fully charged the red light comes on immediately and the shaver does not start.


Use your warranty to have it repaired. Either the charge circuit or the batteries are faulty.

Why have I got a red light on the bottom of my shaver when I am using it


It is common for many Braun shavers, that if the indicator light flashes red while the shaver is being used (switched on and running), it means the battery is low and needs to be charged soon.

Below is an example from a manual for a Braun model 7526 shaver. You can search that site for other manuals if this is not the correct one.

This model shaver has 3 indicator lights:
1) Green (Charging)
2) Red (Low battery)
3) Blue (Power cord attached and plugged into the wall)

Download the manual for the model 7526 here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/20281/Braun-5301.html#manual

"The green charging light shows that the
shaver is being charged. When the rechargeable
battery is fully charged, the charging light
flashes or goes off.

If later on, the charging light comes on
again, this indicates that the shaver is
being recharged to maintain its full
capacity.

The red low-charge light flashes when the
battery capacity has dropped below 20%,
provided the shaver is switched on. The
remaining capacity will then be sufficient
for 2 to 3 shaves."

Norelco 4805 xl razor won't turn on when plugged in nor will the battery charge. i would think it was the battery but it does't want to turn on when plugged in either. is the motor shot? thanks


When the battery goes completely bad, the shaver will not work even from the cord.
You will need to open the shaver and make sure that the batteries have not corroded badly and damaged the inside of the shaver.

You will find the correct replacement battery offered at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

It sounds like it may have am internal loose connection or bad battery. You should be able to plug the cord directly into the bottom of the shaver and run directly from the cord if needed

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.

Yes. take both the shaver and cord into any radio shack store where they will test it for you and/or sell you the device to test it yourself. Joe

Unable to charge the shaver. The charging unit is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be able to charge the shaver.


The cleaning base is the problem. It probably got wet inside and the circuitry is damaged. This is almost always why these go bad. You dont have to replace it to use your shaver as you now know that you can charge the shaver directly from the cord.
If you want the convenience of the cleaning station, you will need to replace it. You can find a new one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
