Question about Braun 8585 Electric Shaver
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

Put a few drops of tap water in the solution if the light goes red until it goes out. Cheap, green way to reuse the plastic container!
Total Cartridge Size = 170 ml
1.) Clean old cartridge with 70% Isopropyl alcohol
2.) Add 3 ml of Lemon oil
3.) Add 3 ml of glycerin
4.) Add 2 ml of water
5.) Add 70% Isopropyl alchohol to 3/4 of the top of the cartridge
16oz (473ml) 70% Isopropyl alcohol = $1
16oz (473ml) Glycerin = $10
16oz (473ml) Lemon oil = $8

Had this same problem with mine. One month after warranty was done with. I ended up opening the thing up and pulled the monster battery out of its socket and put it back in. Worked fine after that. One week and still strong. Another thing I did was to carefully bend up the flat pieces of copper around the battery to make sure they were still getting a good contact with the pins on the cover. Hope this works for you....
