Question about Norelco Quadra Action 7864XL Electric Shaver

Open Question

NORELCO 7864XL SHAVER WON'T HOLD CHARGE.

LIGHTS INDICATE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED, BUT SHAVER SWITCHES OFF BEFORE LIGHTS INDICATE BATTERY DISCHARGED. BATTERY CHARGE HAS GRADUALLY LASTED LESS AND LESS TIME. NOW INDICATES 80% CHARGE, BUT SHAVER SHUTS OFF. STILL WORKS WITH POWER CORD. I ASSUME THIS MEANS THE BATTERY NEEDS REPLACEMENT, BUT I DON'T FIND A REPLACEMENT BATTERY LISTED IN PARTS STORES.

SOURCE: Norelco shaver 6866XL won't charge, light glowsred

The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.

SOURCE: have Panasonic ES8093 shaver.charge indicator

this problem is usually from old batteries. batteries will typically lose much of their ability to hold a charge after 3-6 years and they will need to be replaced.
if you use your shaver wet or rinse it under water, I dont suggest that you repair it as you will not likely get it sealed back up well enough to prevent it from leaking.
Panasonic does allow the sale of their specialized shaver batteries to consumers. Therefore, you will need to use a compatible battery type. shaveroutlet.com sells a set here:

These are made for Braun shavers but will work because they have prongs on the ends to snap in place like your originals

I hope you are observing the following:- Recharging only when the batteries are almost completely empty. Continuously recharging or continuously using as a corded razor will reduce life of batteries Charge only when the indicator in charge meter starts blinking. It appears that your batteries are gone. Hope you have replaced the batteries with the new ones. Use a good brand

I have Norelco 6867XL. After fully charged, my razor will lose all power one day after. I don't know what happens. Can you help me resolve that problem. Thank you.


Hello,
the battery of your Norelco 6867XL is weak and cannot hold charge for long any longer. The cell in the battery as become very weak such that it cannot hold charge for a very long time anymore. This it why it looses power one day after it is fully charged.
Have the battery replaced and problem should be solved.
I hope you understand the above, if you don't please let me know for further assistance.
Regards.

I was given a norelco 3605 shaver in excellent condition (used) without instructions and would like to know the charging procedure and duration (the amount of time it takes to fully charge the razor). Is...


The manual says to charge for 16 hours if it has not been used in awhile. They say nothing about it over charging, but the batteries need to be used and let discharge through shaving. A fresh/new battery is supposed to last about 2 weeks before needing a recharge. I think keeping them charged all the time cuts down on battery life.

I need to change the battery in a norelco 7864 xl, how to do it?


You will find the correct battery type for model 7864XL at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-norelco-more-p-278.html

To replace, you will need to remove the back cover by removing the two screws. You may need to extend the long hair trimmer to get to the second screw. Take off back cover to access inside. There are two metal clips that must be unhooked for better access. You can unsolder the batteries from the circuit board but for easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries with small needle nose pliers rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

If you are not able to do this yourself, you can have shaveroutlet.com do it for you. See link below

I have owned a Norelco 8894xl for over 10 years. My battery meter will show 127 minutes after the razor is fully charged. The battery is not over charged. This is normal and does not indicate a problem. Hope this helps.
