The swivel frame can not alone be removed from the shaver. It is part of a component called a 'drive unit' which icludes the motor. You will find a disassembly video at shaveroutlet.com. See link below and scroll down for video

I can't figure out what is wrong. When I try to use the razor the cutter seems frozen and doesnt move side to side. When I take off the foil I see that the cutter seems to move perfectly fine. I then...


If you are having the same problem with both your old and new foils and cutters it sounds like there is a problem with the oscillator in the swivel frame. Sometimes the plastic oscillator inside will partially break and it can not vibrate under the load of the foil and cutters.
This swivel frame is part of the 'drive unit' and can be found available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below for item and scroll down the item page for installation video

I've connected it to 115v with cable from old Braun and probably burned out fuse or rectifier. How I could take apart the shaver?


To open the shaver body on model 8585, you will first need to gently pry off the 'cap' on the bottom that surrounds the hole where the cord plugs in. Once removed the side grips will pull off revealing 4 screws. Remove screws to take off back cover and access insides. Inner parts simply lift out.
You will probably need to replace the circuit board you will find a replacement circuit board for model 8585 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Making a funny noise and not shaving well


8585 shaver gave higher tone and stopped cutting especially after a few days growth, even with new cutter and foil. Cutter wasn't pressing against the foil properly due to a bit of wear on the spring clip holding the cutter pin. Fixed with about 1cm of cigarette paper moistened and rolled into a 1-2mm ball. Stuffed that into cutter pin hole and rammed home with the cutter pin. Take the foil off and wiggle the cutter - if its feels loose, this might help, though the battery might just be getting old.

You can use a small flat screwdriver or similar object to do this. Once it is removed, the side grips will pull away revealing 4 screws on the back. Remove screws to take off the back cover. The internal parts will then simply lift out. Reassemble in reverse order.

Problem with shaver


are you talking about springs under the center cutter bar between the foils? If so, you will need a new foil and cutter set. It is available at shaveroutlet.com with link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-8000-series-360-complete-foil-and-cutter-p-143.html

Or maybe you refer to a spring that goes to one of the clips that hold the foil assembly to the pivoting swivel frame. If so, you will need the part linked below

Braun 8585 maintenance


Look at the bottom of the shaver where the AC cord plugs in. Carefully pry the small black piece of plastic out of the base. Once you have this out, the two chrome side pieces will fall off, and you can split the shaver in half to expose its inner workings.
