Electric razor won't charge
I've had two different charging issues with my wet-dry electrics over the years. The first is the same one as here: The battery croaks and you need to replace it. I take the old one apart, save the screen and its housing and put the battery in the recycle bin. Then, I go on-line and simply order a new one. Unless you have a really expensive razor, replacement parts and shipping costs aren't worth the trouble.
The second is that because I use mine in the shower, the contact pins & sockets on the charger & razor develop a layer of lime or calcium scale overtime. This thin layer of scale insulates the contacts from each other and prevents the razor from charging. At first I tried high-end "Cramolin DeOxit" but with no success. Then I poured a small amount CLR on the pins and sockets and scrubbed them with an old toothbrush. After rinsing with some clean water and drying with a paper towel and a few blasts of air, it charged perfectly! So, check your charge status light first to be sure you have a good pin/socket connection before leaping for a new battery.
