Question about Braun Cruzer 3 Electric Shaver

2 Answers

Braun Cruzer 3: Trimmer blades don't cut (move) anymore. I have now bought three of these razors during the last 8 years. Two of them broke down with the same problem (trimmer blades not moving anymore) after abt 2 years each. When I bought the third one, I was convinced Braun would have solved the issue by then. But recently also the trimmer of my third Braun Cruzer 3 broke down. I had it repaired during the two year warranty (Belgium) I took one of them apart to see if I can't fix it, but I can't disassemble the trimmer part. On one machine, the smaller trimmer still seems to work, but when flipped around to use the main trimmer blades, these do not seem to be moving anymore. Did anyone successfully repair this problem? Did anyone have any luck disassembling the trimmer? tnx, chris

I assume you already tried this, but in case you didn't, clean out all the hair with a small brush (eg. a toothbrush) and then apply liberal amounts of lubricating oil such as "Kool Lube" which is available at beauty supply stores.

The trimming blades of my Shaver do not work. my hair got stuck in it. It seem the blades do not move across each other.


Assuming you have cleaned and lubed the blades, then you need to dismantle requiring a torx screwdriver.
Firstly, take off the top cover and remove the foil itself. There are two torx screws there, and another one where the power charger goes in at the bottom.
Once those 3 are removed, pull apart the main black/grey sections. There are 2 more screws holding the battery in place, remove them and the battery. Next bit is tricky - where the 2 grey 'dimples' are, gently loosen the two sections which should leave the black slider holding the trimmer and just one side of the grey outer shell. It felt to me it was going to break, but came apart without issue.
I couldn't work out how to seperate the black trimmer section here, but you can buy replacement trimmer sections so assuming it's possible somehow. From here, I cleaned, and soaked the blades with lube overnight. Then put back together again.

Can i sharpen my electic trimmers using sandpaper


Things You'll Need: Three-sided blade sharpener (coarse, medium, fine) Small flat head screwdriver step 1 Using the flat head screwdriver, unscrew the trimmer blades and remove them carefully. Wipe off any oil, grime or dirt that has built up on them as this may make it more difficult to handle and keep them in place during the manual portion of the sharpening process. Step 2 Separate the blades and re-apply only the moving blade to the tension spring. Then apply the moving blade to sharpener surface and turn the clippers or trimmers on. Hold the moving blade on the surface of the sharpener and apply light pressure while moving the blade back and forth for one to two minutes. You can also lay the blade on the sharpener first, then put the trimmer tension spring directly on the blade. Step 3 Turn off the clippers and remove the moving blade. It should look shiny and feel sharper. Step 4 Remove the guide from the guide blade by unscrewing it using the flat head screwdriver. Place the guide blade on the sharpening surface and manually run it back and forth for about one or two minutes or until it's been sharpened to your satisfaction. Screw the guide back onto the guide blade while being careful to readjust it before you tighten the screws. Step 5 Screw all the blades back on the trimmers and power them on to make sure they've been fitted correctly. Test them on your own hair to make sure they've been sharpened correctly and are set to the desired depth. Ads by Google Best Knife Sharpener Sharpen like the pros. Complete kit w/ 1x30 belt sander.

Depend on STIHL Electric Trimmers. www.STIHLdealers.com Tips & Warnings Which surface you choose, whether coarse, medium or fine, depends on how dull your blades are and how sharp you want to make them. If they are very dull, you will want to start with the coarse or medium side of the sharpener. If they just need a small amount of sharpening, use the fine side. If you've never sharpened electric trimmers before, you may want to visually observe and feel the sharpness of the blades with your fingers before you start to sharpen it. It may be hard to tell if the blades are sharp enough if you don't feel them just before you apply them to the sharpening surface.

Sideburn trimmer does not cut anymore but still makes noise. trimmer blade does not move.


It is pretty common for the trimmer to get jammed up with hair particles and skin oils which can prevent the blade from moving.

Try running the blades of the trimmer in a shallow dish of rubbing alcohol. Then clean the blades vigorously with an old toothbrush or similar. If the blades still does not move try using the tip of a small flat screwdriver or similar object to push and advance the moveable blade. Repeat running in alcohol and brush clean

If this doesnt work, you will probably need a new trimmer

Braun Pulsonic model 9595. Trimmer will not close properly. Can I repair this myself?


The trimmer is replaceable and can be purchased as an assembly http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/brshrese7pul.html You will T-6 and T-8 torx drivers to take apart the head end of the shaver. Using these tools, remove the swiveling head, the hold down cover over the motor assembly, and then pop off the drive arm for the trimmer. Now the broken trimmer assembly can be slid out of the end of the shaver by carefully prying between the case where the on/off button is located and the black trimmer assembly base with a small flat blade jeweler's screwdriver. The new trimmer assembly can then be slid into the case and the shaver reassembled. Just be sure the ends of the retraction spring on the new trimmer assembly are installed over the little chrome retaining lugs for them or your trimmer will not fully retract (my trimmer assembly arrived with the spring ends loose and not retained by the lugs).

Trimmer malfunction


Hi,

I had same problem, at first I could not find out how to seperate the small silver cover with the on/off switch from the rest. After removing the 3 torx screws, 1 at the power entrance, and 2 under the shaver blade. You can remove the black cover. I also removed 2 more torx screws to separate the battery, from the rest, (don't know if thats really necessary). The silver covers are 'clicked' into eachother. When lifted the part where the battery part was screwed into, the silver parts became partly seperated, then you can pull the part apart.
I cleaned/washed the trimmer part with wd40 contact spray.
Assembled the parts, and made sure that the little plastic nodge was came into the trimmer.
Cleaned it all (removed leaking wd 40) and works fine again.
Hopefully this is helpfull to anyone.

Goodluck,
Adrian

Problem shaving


People, never ever buy the Braun body cruzer!!!! It does not mather which version/type you buy, with 'all' versions the big trimmer fails to work after aprox, 18-24 months.

I have bought three version of them, the first one stopped working totally after about a year. With the second one the large trimmer blade did not work anymore, so I bought the newest cruzer version (shaver #3 by then) in the hope Braun would have solved this problem. But NO, the same thing happend. After 18 months the trimmer is broke and I can throw my shaver in the bin because you buy this thing for the trimmer.

Now about 3 years later I have in total bought 3 cruzer shavers from Braun and all are broke (i am also almost broke, those things are pretty expensive here). And of course Braun does not help, they just say you are beyond warranty or did not take good care of the product. But I did, I keeped it clean with the little brushes, I put oil on blades/parts, and when I had shaved in the shower I made dry.... so I wonder what Braun means with "taking good care for your product" but i think they mean something like: buy a new one and give us some more of your money.

I will NEVER buy a Braun product again! And be warned people, don't say you where not warned for this product when you buy one and is goes broke within a year.
