Cleaning under running water / Switch on the shaver (cordless) and rinse the shaver head under hot running water until all residues have been removed. You may use liquid soap without abrasive substances. Rinse off all foam and let the shaver run for a few more seconds.

SOURCE: Shaver will not charge or clean in the base

All you have to do is take the base apart. Turn it upside down, and there are two plastic clips on the rear portion of the base. Press them in with a key or screwdriver and wiggle the base a bit to remove the inner portion from the outer shell. Make sure you unplug the unit and remove the cleaning cartridge before doing this. Once it is apart, place a small wedge underneath the portion of the electric contact that sticks out to touch the shaver, and press the back of that portion out so that it slightly bends the contact strip and makes it stick out a little further. Then remove the wedge and put the base back together. It will work again, as the contacts can now protrude to touch the shaver and run the cleaning and charging cycle.

These cleaning station units can be found in good used condition on "that auction site." I recommend you buy one from there. Or you can get a new replacement at a website like Good luck!

SOURCE: Braun 8585 shaver, charges fine,

The problem is the base, not the shaver. Most likely, the circuit board inside the base has gotten wet and is damaged. If this is the case, it will need to be replaced. You will find a replacement at See link below

How to fix a Braun series 7 razor that will not charge in cleaning stand

I have a Braun 7 series that I use occasionally. The last time I tried to charge was unsuccessful. After several days on the charger still would not charge, I discovered the RESET button right under the Braun name. The charger cable has to be unplugged, then press reset with a paper clip and now works like a charm. Note: reset will not work if charger cable is plugged in.

Charger arm will not stay locked in place to charge the razor

This is a common problem for older cleaning bases. The part is worn out. You will need to replace the upper housing of the cleaning base. You will find this item available at See link below

If repairing the unit is not your thing, you can replace the entire unit instead. See item linked below

I replaced the cleaning liqud cartridge but it shows the red light indicating it is empty.

here is the solution..follow the steps please..

Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards
  • Replace the cartridge in the base station and close it.

  • The indicator light should cycle then change to green. If it doesn't then unplug the base station, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in.
  • Press the lock button to clean the shaver. If everything went well it should start cleaning like normal.

    Unable to charge the shaver. The charging unit is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be able to charge the shaver.

    The cleaning base is the problem. It probably got wet inside and the circuitry is damaged. This is almost always why these go bad. You dont have to replace it to use your shaver as you now know that you can charge the shaver directly from the cord.
    If you want the convenience of the cleaning station, you will need to replace it. You can find a new one at See link below
