Same issue as this last poster....
I follow the directions which say to plug in the base and then attach the shaver. I then push the start button and the shaver is lowered into the solution. It is immediately raised to what I think is the drying position. After that nothing happens. The shaver never turns on or off as the booklet says it should. The green and yellow lights flash and a while later only the green is on steadily.
Had the same problem. The cleaning light was flashing faster than the charge light. I pressed the on/off button twice in quick succession and the cleaning cycle started normally and the lights began flashing together. Don't know why I had to press the button again, but it did the trick.

Set the Jet Clean System base on a flat surface and pull the cleaning reservoir out of the base.
Unscrew the fill cap on the reservoir, pour Jet Clean Solution into the reservoir and replace the reservoir in the base.
Plug the power cord of the cleaning base into and electrical outlet.
Remove the protective cover on the razor head and place it to the side. The protective cover must be removed or the cleaning system will not work.
Slide the razor head into the base, push back on the razor handle and press the locking lever down to keep it in place. The indicator light on the cleaning base will blink, indicating the razor is inserted properly and charging.
Press the "On/Off" button on the side of the cleaning base. The razor will lower into the cleaning solution and begin the cleaning process, which takes approximately one hour. The razor will rise out of the cleaning solution when the cleaning process is complete.
Lift up on the locking lever, remove the razor from the cleaning base and rinse the razor heads under warm water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. The razor is now clean and ready for use.
If you just have the solution and not the Jet Clean System, then I would presume you could soak just the heads in the solution to clean them and then rinse it off.
Try removing the cord from the clean/charge base and plug the cord directly into the bottom of the shaver. If it charges directly from the cord, it is a safe assumption that the clean/charge base is not working correctly.
This unit is not repairable as the problem is, almost certainly, a faulty circuit board. You will need to purchase a replacement.
You will find a replacement clean/charge base for model 8585 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
Based on the limited info provided, it appears you have a rechargeable razor that you plug in to recharge.
I had this occur with an older shaver I had years ago. The suspected issue is tha the battery isn't fully charged and the razor is running on battery power while the cord is plugged into it and the power outlet.
However, the cord is making a loose connection at the razor or has a broken conductor in the cord. So and what is happening is that you arfe getting an intermittent power connection that allows the power to run the razor, which would be why it seems to "speed up" as any rechargeable product always run faster/better when connected directly to an electric power source.
You can look at the plug on the razor to see if the pins/connector is loose, and also carefully check the cord to see if shows signs of having been sharply kinked or bent at the razor plug end or at the power plug end or along it somewhere.
It could be as simple as replacing the power cord. Or you may have to take the razor apart to repair the charging socket at the razor to resolve this issue.
The product does work fine, you can try it again. Make absolutely sure that all of the old adhesive has been removed, I use a new, sharp razor to remove the old stuff on both surfaces. Be sure NOT to touch either of the clean areas with your fingers. If you do, take acetone and wipe that part clean. follow the directions and good luck.
I have been shaving with electric razors for 48 years, and the Braun 8595 is by far the best one yet. I have had the problem of the refusal of the cleaning station to recognize the level of fluid in the cartridge, three times over the last couple of years. It seems to relate to a build up of shavings in the unit. To get it working again I inverted the unit, and carefully flushed water via a small tube, back through the 1cm diameter hole in the underside of the open base. Of course, the unit must then be thoroughly dried before use, or the sparks may fly. Does anyone know how to dismantle the unit for a safer and more thorough clean?
