Question about Braun Flex XP II 5790 Electric Shaver

1 Answer

Non cleaning razor

My husband has a Braun 5790 self cleaning razor which does not clean.
The clean cycle makes the noises, lights go on but the beard residue stays in the upper tray and no fluid is released to clean the razor. The hole from the tray is blocked by a clear plastic piece and the "spout" next to it goes nowhere either. Is it incorrectly assembled? On reading the instructions I find there is no special cleaning manual that is mentioned in the general pamphlet. Where can I (a) find out how to clean this other than manually and (b) where can I get a cleaning manual?

    Thank you for trying but it is not the fluid container itself that is faulty but rather the actual stand for the razor. I have talked with Braun (Proctor & Gambel) since posting the help request and they agree the stand was not assembled correctly, so I am returning the razor to them for correction or replacement.

Dear Freddofrog,
please ensure you have removed the plastic plugs from the cleaning fluid container. If you have removed these i would suggest that the fluid contaner is faulty, your place of purchase should exchange this for you with no problem.

Braun series 7 cleaning station has red lights even after I replaced the cleaning solution


When the razor is not regularly cleaned in the cleaning station and the hygiene indicator goes low, the cleaning station may lose its ability to sense the fluid level. I almost sent the cleaning station in for repair (mine is out of warranty) but was able to clear the faulty condition by resetting the razor's cutter replacement (holding the small recessed reset button below "Braun" logo on the razor) and unplugging/replugging the station then attempting a cleaning until it performed one completely successful cleaning cycle. After that the fluid level showed full. I also heard that the drain hole in the "cup" where the razor sits can get clogged - not sure what happens then but you want to keep that clean.

Braun 8995 - YELLOW LIGHT STAYS ON!


I experienced the same symptoms on my 8995; solid yellow light (even though the cartridge was full), cleaning failed (red light on) after pressing either start button. After many failed attempts to clean the razor, unplugging the station and pushing start button, I decided to clean the razor under running water. I rinsed the razor under water and then turned it on allowing it to run in a pool of water (like it would in the station). After water cleaning, I returned the razor to the station, pressed the start button and it worked! Was able to do both the quick clean and auto clean.

The problem is the base, not the shaver. Most likely, the circuit board inside the base has gotten wet and is damaged. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced. You will find a replacement at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

I have the Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver, and ive learned that it is pritty much gonna keep being a money hole. Can any one suggest a self cleaning brand that is more reliable?


The self-cleaning shavers are all much more expensive to maintain than traditional non-self-cleaning shavers. Your model 8985 is not inherantly more expensive to maintain than any other self cleaning model by Braun or other brand. The cleaning solution is expensive, the cleaning machines break because of exposure to liquid, and the heads often wear out faster as well.
Because of this, I strongly suggest you buy a shaver without a self cleaning machine. Most models that do not include self cleaning machines are very easy to clean with an old toothbruh dipped in rubbing alcohol. If you liked the way the Braun shaved when it was in good condition, I would suggest the following models linked below as possibilities

the razor is warranted for 2 years if you want to contact Braun for replacement. You can try to tap the razor with the palm of your hand after taking off the shaver top and blades. Sometimes this will help dislodge anything that is keeping the shaver from making good contact inside razor.
Just don't beat it against anything hard.

Base floods with solution during cleaning cycle


OK, Remove shaver from cleaning base. Raise top cover as if you are going to replace the cleaning cartridge. Now, look into the cleaning cup where you put the shaver into.You will notice a small hole on the bottom left side. With a Q-tip ,clean out the beard hair from the hole.If you have a model 5301 which is located on the bottom of the base, you should be able to push the Q-tip all the way through the hole. This will allow the liquid to flow back down into the cartridge.This is whats causing the overflow.
