Tip & How-To about Braun Syncro 7526 Electric Shaver

Braun cleaning stand - pump will not run during cleaning cycle

My Braun shaver cleaning stand ran perfectly for several years until recently. The system would perform a cleaning cycle but I could tell something was awry because the shaver head didn't have the usual pleasant after-smell of the cleaning fluid. The blower motor inside the cleaning stand would run but the pump motor to spray the fluid into the cutter/foil assembly could not have been running.

WARNING - If your Braun Cleaning System and Shaver are under warranty, you will probably violate the warranty by pulling it apart for repairs.

I opened the cleaning stand (make sure you pop the upper section to allow removal of the cleaning fluid cartridge and let the system drain first! ) by prying the dome section from the bottom section at the circular gap around the body of the cleaning stand.

Once inside I inspected all the connections and located the pump motor. Using an external power supply (+12VDC) I confirmed the motor was either bad or locked down. (Remove the wires so that you do not subject the control pcb to the external supply voltage) While inspecting the bottom side of the pump section (this is where the fluid is drawn in) I noticed a white toothed gear inset into the white bottom section of the pump well.

I used a small screwdriver to rotate the gear to make sure the mechanics of the pump were not bound up. They were free and I tested the pump motor again. SUCCESS! The pump motor ran normally!

I then reassembled the cleaning stand and tested it with the shaver and Braun supply.

If I have more trouble, it is likely that the brush contacts of the pump motor are worn and when I rotated the pump gear, it placed the commutator in position to allow the motor to operate.

The cleaning unit on my braun series 3 (350 cc-4)shaver will not work although it will charge after buying a new charging lead? Any ideas?

These cleaning systems are prone to many problems. If the shaver will charge directly from the cord but not the stand, your stand is faulty. They are not repairable since parts are not available. A new stand can be found at shaveroutlet.com if needed

Clean and Renew stand for braun 8595 does not seem to cycle properly...after shaving and placing in unit, it randomly seems to clean and is stuck on cleaning cycle (normal light blinking, no charge) I then remove the shaver and put it back in and it shows clean and begins charging...

The circuit board on the shaver may have become faulty. One thing you can try is to fully charge the shaver first, directly connected to the outlet, and then try using the cleaning base. Also, be sure that the fluid level is sufficient. Lastly, you may be able to buy a used but working condition cleaning station off of eBay. New replacements are a bit costly.

charging stand

I just had the same problem, where the top of the charger would not stay down. I tried a spring clamp to keep it in place, and that works like a charm! Try it!
