Question about Braun 360° Complete 8985 Electric Shaver

1 Answer

My Braun series shaver recently stopped working. I have tried to charge it, thinking thats the problem, but thats not it. It started again, but stopped a couple days later. Its 1 year old. What are some possible problems and solutions? Do I need to replace any of the components of the shaver? I do not want to have to buy another shaver.

If it is intermittent, that sounds like there is a bad connection inside. Braun has a 2 year warranty. If it is only one year old, call Braun at 800-272-8611

SOURCE: 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

Pry out the blue button. In the oval hole where the button was you will see a thin metallic part (semi-circular shapes on each side); pull it out through the hole and the switch will be functional.

SOURCE: Braun 5520 Shaver Stopped Working

The "Braun 5520" doesn't have the 2 screws under 2 small caps on bottom, as described by so many on these boards.
The round plastic plug receptacle 'itself' is the release. (Twist-Release the outer ring.)
Look on the base, where you plug the AC cord in.... Just inside the rim, you will see two small 'recesses', opposite each other, that allow a wedge tool (like a large screw driver) to turn the rim counter-clockwise (left) 45 degrees, releasing the base and housing.
Once this is unlocked, slide the cover off and pop the black retainer cover off to reveal the "PC Board W/Batteries" module/assembly. (Batteries are NOT replaceable by themselves.)
There is a tiny (and I mean "tiny"!) resistor that burns out in the circuit board and causes the majority of power malfunctions in these models.
You can order a new PC Board (with batteries) for approx. $40.00. (+ S&H)
One place is: "http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_5505631_braun-pc-board-w-batteries.htm".
(Fits Models: 5510, 5515, 5520, 6515, 6520, 6510, 6512 - Types: 5505, 5506, 5705, 5706)

Or, find other by Googling "Braun 5520 Circuit board assembly", and/or replace this model with your number.

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.

The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.

When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.

Here's a reference for your future use. www.electricshaver.com carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.

Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.

I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: shaver suddenly stopped working

I had the same problem with mine right after the two year warranty expired.

BUT I FIXED IT!!!

The problem seems to be bad engineering. Apparently the cleaning solution works its way into the circuit board of the shaver.

I took the razor apart (you need very small phillips screwdrivers), there are six screws. First remove the foils, then the blades (just pull them up). Two screws are where the head rotates. after removing the head, there are two more screws underneath the head. There are two more screws on the bottom under plastic caps beside the charging terminal. You can now gently slide the razor's hardware out of the case by pulling up on the head mounting arms while holding the case as you normally would shaving. (This sounds confusing but should be obvious as you do it.)

Looking at the circuit board i noticed some white residue on the board. I gently cleaned the board with small amount of alcohol and q-tips, being careful not to catch any cotton on the components of the board. At this point you can at least confirm that the motor is not burnt out and the batteries are charged by placing a flathead screwdriver between the positive terminal of the battery and the motor. It should come on if the motor and batteries are okay.

Next you hit the reset button at the bottom-front, then see if it comes on using the on/off button. You can do this step with the razor disassembled or assembled.

Hopefully this works for you. Now if only i could figure out a way to clean and refill the cartridges instead of paying $5 for 5 cents worth of cleaning fluid.

SOURCE: The braun 5510 shaver.. rechargeable or not

If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

Braun series 3 no longer holds a charge. what can I do?


It is not that young anymore. The rechargeable battery is (almost?) dead. It is almost impossible to replace it. I once tried it, took me more than a day yo put everything together and still it never was as before.
I have bought a new Braun (799) and I'm convinced this one will live longer. The rechargeable battery in this one, you can shave one hour before you need to recharge it. It lasts a week with me, or sometimes even longer, before I have to charge it again.

Perhaps you just use the shaver with the power cord, like we used to do for 20 years, and start saving for a new one?

Try plugging the cord directly into the shaver. If it charges this way, your clean and charge unit is bad. A replacement can be ordered from the link below

You state that is works here so other than the charging not showing I don't see a real problem here. If it drains totally and then does not recharge it is one of two things. Bad battery or bad charger. Replace the charging station first.

Hi, My guess is that the battery needs to be replaced with a new one. After many uses the battery will not charge properly any more. (internal discharge) Replace ,Replace ,Replace.

By 'power unit', it appears that you are referring to the power/charging cord. If this is the item you require, you will find this item for model 150 (series 1) at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Braun 7570 shaver wont charge but wont run on mains lead


My Pulsonic Razor that I received for Christmas will not run on battery, or with the plug supplied. I have tried just about everything I can think of. Is there a way to solve this problem? I do not have a receipt as it was a gift and am quite certain it would cost me a small fortune in order to fix it at a Braun Service centre.
Please help me if you can. TY
