20 Most Recent Braun 8585 Electric Shaver Questions & Answers

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.Update 2/2018: If you mix your own formula as others note, it is important to include some tap water for electrical conductivity for the fluid sensor to work.

The problem you've stated about your Braun model 8585 is related to old batteries. If the charging light still illuminates when you plug it in, you can simply replace the batteries which can be found at the link below https://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-battery-aa-nimh-p-108.html If it completely dead (no light), you will need to replace the circuit board instead.

I'm pretty sure that the batteries are part of a sealed unit with the PCB on this model, and after checking the Service Diagram I'm even more convinced.

I would suggest fully charging and discharging (leaving it running without the foil and cutter on) a number of times to see if you can improve the performance, as there may be a memory effect on the battey. The model is only 5 years old so your batteries should have a little more life.

It is a mains/rechargeable shaver though, so you "should" still be able to use it with the lead plugged directly into the shaver. So the shaver may not be a dead loss! :)

It is just an alcohol solution with a very small amount of cleaning solution. A jewelry cleaner premixed would do it.

Most likely, the batteries are dead and need replaced. You need two batteries and they can be found at shaveroutlet.com.
