    Your assessment was correct that the charger bow was not going down all the way to lock in the razor is correct. I followed your suggestion and I cannot find any reason for this not to happen. I installed the razor into the recharger and put a rubber band on the bow and th main part of the unit to hold it down and go through the entire cleaning/charging process, (which it did) but it will still not close all the way. I am not sure what else one can due?

    I had the same thing happen to my Braun. Being a mechanic I took it apart and found that it is made with a very weak plastic latch, on which the tip had busted off. Since it is such a small piece I came up with the same fix you did and use a rubber band to hold it down. I feel replacing the part and being super gentle would only make it last longer next time. I chalk it up as an engineering flaw.

    I had the same thing happen on my Braun BS5301 base. I took it apart, found that the latch is a very small piece of plastic and that the tip of it had broken off. Replacement of this part and gentle actuation will only make it last a little bit longer. It was not engineered strong enough to last. Sadly, you will probably be pulling out the rubber bands again to hold the connector down into the shaver.

Check to make sure that the shaver and the charger are clean. It is not locking in because there is something that is not letting it go down in far enough. You can clean it with canned air.

The top will not stay down for charging


This is a common problem with the clean/charge base for model 7526. The mechanism inside is broken. You can replace the upper housing that includes the locking arm or you can replace the whole system. Both options are available at shaveroutlet.com. See links below

Hi, My braun bs 5301 does not lock my braun 7630 shaver in anymore. at the top where it clicks into the bottom of the shaver, its not actually clicking in and now it doesnt charge or clean unless i hold it...


While holding the neck, pull up hard on the charging piece with the blue button.... You will not break it, it will go right back in after...

DO NOT try to remove the whole neck, just the button piece will come up, an inch or two (NOT OUT COMPLETLY) The wire will only allow you to pull it up 1"-2" so dont try to remove it....

Then look inside and you can see a spring, it's not attached to anything it's just resting in a hole. Pull it out and then push the top charging piece back down till it clicks in...

Now it will stay down on its own... I had the same problem and this work around solved it.

I have the same problem with my Braun 7570 as the Jan.8, 2008 writer about the 7526 or 7680 shaver. The blue button came off but the shaver still works


This button wears out or just fails with time, but is replaceable.

Braun 7526 Syncro Body Housing with Trimmer
$12.99, Fits Model: 7526, Type: 5493, Includes back case, front case with trimmer/switch, side grips and bottom 'plug', http://shaveroutlet.com/.

To disassemble the 7000 Series Braun shaver.

Disassembly of the 7000 Braun shaver is basically the same as the 8000 series Braun shaver listed below. The 7000 is actually easier to disassemble as the plastic is much thicker and the bottom socket cover pops right off as there are less tabs and they are bigger.

To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.

Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.

The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.

There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.

This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.

Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.
