Question about Braun Cruzer 3 Electric Shaver
People, never ever buy the Braun body cruzer!!!! It does not mather
which version/type you buy, with 'all' versions the big trimmer fails to
work after aprox, 18-24 months.
I have bought three version of them, the first one stopped working totally after about a year. With the second one the large trimmer blade did not work anymore, so I bought the newest cruzer version (shaver #3 by then) in the hope Braun would have solved this problem. But NO, the same thing happend. After 18 months the trimmer is broke and I can throw my shaver in the bin because you buy this thing for the trimmer.
Now about 3 years later I have in total bought 3 cruzer shavers from Braun and all are broke (i am also almost broke, those things are pretty expensive here). And of course Braun does not help, they just say you are beyond warranty or did not take good care of the product. But I did, I keeped it clean with the little brushes, I put oil on blades/parts, and when I had shaved in the shower I made dry.... so I wonder what Braun means with "taking good care for your product" but i think they mean something like: buy a new one and give us some more of your money.
I will NEVER buy a Braun product again! And be warned people, don't say you where not warned for this product when you buy one and is goes broke within a year.

The solution was very simple in my case (I had the same problem with trimmer pulling my facial hair). According to the manual you should oil up the trimmer cutters (as well as the foil) each week - if you wash the shaver in water.
I did just that - used a little oil (that came together with shaver) and it did the trick - the trimmer works now just how it used to.
I'm lucky it worked because it was the first time I ever oiled it since I bought the shaver ten months ago.
Hope that helps :-)

There have been dozens of posts on this with no solution. I guess we hav all been ripped off by braun, sorry to say.
I honestly think your best bet is to do the same as most of us and admit that this company sold you a piece of **** that doesn't do it's job, throw it out and buy something good. You are honeslty better buying a 'cheap' twenty or thirty dollar trimmer with no bells or whistles than trying to get the cruzer to do anything other than rip at your face, miss 80% of your beard and generally **** a hundred bucks off of you.
My solution? : Buit a 15 dollar conair kit, it actually trims. Aso, never by braun again.

Gentlemen, you put oil in your car right? Why wouldn't you lubricate the moving parts on this fine piece of machinery? Two things I love about the Cruzer3 are the trimmer attachment, and the fact that you can rinse it in water.
Well of course that will eventually remove any oil/grease/lubricant and slow down the parts.
A quick oiling, or a few sprays of WD40 and the fur will be flying again. Make sure you wash both razor and face well if using WD40 or you'll get a nasty rash.

Im having the same problem. it looks like the cutting blade is not moving far enough any more. i dont think you can take it apart to clean it so maybe its just junk now.

Same problem here, the trimmer stopped working. Has anybody tried replacing the shaver foil + cutter block? Braun sells replace parts for those, in fact they recommend replacing them after 18 months of use.

Tips for a great answer:
The best way to shave your beard is close, but not too close. Excessive pulling and stretching of the skin causes the hair to protrude a bit farther out than normal. Shaving over stretched skin may cut the hairs below the surface of resting skin, thus increasing the risk of ingrown hairs.
