SOURCE: Braun 360 Cleaning base

When you are looking top down into the cleaning base you want to look to the left side of the hole where you put your razor. That is were the solution drains out after your razor is cleaned and there is probably a blockage there. I used a toothpick to clean mine out every once in awhile when gunk would build up there.

SOURCE: Cleaning base thinks it's empty

I had the same problem. Try taking out the cartridge and in the compartment where the razor sits in to get clean, there is a drain hole on the left side. Try cleaning the hole out with a toothpick or something similar. It seems that the drain hole clogs and causes this problem. I just did it and all seems to be working fine.
Cheers

SOURCE: I have a Braun 360

In your case, it's hard to know exactly what might be wrong without more information. Was the shaver exposed to undue heat, such as left in a car or in a place that wasn't air conditioned in the hot summer?

I have a couple of vintage Braun shavers (over 15 years old) where the batteries do not hold a charge, but the shavers still work when plugged in. One of them will show a low charge level but still work.

Although the batteries in these shavers are fairly robust, if fully discharged and not used for 18 months, it might be that they've got a "low level memory" and will need replacing. If you are handy, you could disassemble the shaver and replace the batteries. They are NiMh AA flat top batteries that you can buy on websites like onlybatteries.com. If you're handing with soldering, you can replace them yourself. If you're unsure about that, you can buy the batteries along with the circuit board as a complete unit that drops right into place. Shaveroutlet.com sells these for the 360 complete shavers. Good luck!

SOURCE: Red "empty" light on Braun Clean & Renew fluid turns on too soon

Put a few drops of tap water in the solution if the light goes red until it goes out. Cheap, green way to reuse the plastic container!

Total Cartridge Size = 170 ml
DIRECTIONS:
1.) Clean old cartridge with 70% Isopropyl alcohol
2.) Add 3 ml of Lemon oil
3.) Add 3 ml of glycerin
4.) Add 2 ml of water
5.) Add 70% Isopropyl alchohol to 3/4 of the top of the cartridge
COST ANALYSIS:
16oz (473ml) 70% Isopropyl alcohol = $1
16oz (473ml) Glycerin = $10
16oz (473ml) Lemon oil = $8
Cost Savings on one unit
Normal = $11
Homebrew = $0.81
Savings = $10.19 per refill

I cannot click the top on when i try to charge it ....


The latch on the 'arm' of the clean and charging base is broken. You can either change out the top portion of the clean/charge base or replace the whole thing if you don't thisnk you can do the repair.
Both itemsare available at shaveroutlet.com. See links below. Basic instructions for installing the top part are included on the item page

Just replaced motor assembly now always shows liquid in cleaning station empty even with new cartrige


The motor assembly and the fluid level indicators are completely independent components and any coincidence between the timing of the problem with the cleaning base and your repair of the motor unit is likely pure coincidence. More likely, the cleaning base is at fault and will need replaced.

Unable to charge the shaver. The charging unit is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be able to charge the shaver.


The cleaning base is the problem. It probably got wet inside and the circuitry is damaged. This is almost always why these go bad. You dont have to replace it to use your shaver as you now know that you can charge the shaver directly from the cord.
If you want the convenience of the cleaning station, you will need to replace it. You can find a new one at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
