Question about Braun Health & Beauty
I've been using a Braun 8985 for the last 3 years without any problem. However, recently the clean and renew stand has stopped working. That is, it still charges but cleaning cycle does not start, although the refill is full and the green led signals that the "intensive" cleaning cycle is needed. Any suggestions to make it start cleaning?
I took the file on a nail clipper and turned the impeller inside the unit. Remove the cleaning fluid from the unit. Turn the unit upside down, On the part that sticks into the large hole of the fluid reservoir you'll see the impeller. Just turn it it enough to dislodge any whiskers and try it again. Worked for me. Good luck

The pump in the stand may be bad. in this case you will need a new clean and charge unit. these are available at shaveroutlet.com. see link below

Thank you! I used a paper clip to turn the small white impeller inside the hole. Works great now.

I banged the living $h1+ out of it for a while, made sure the holes were clear, and rotated the impeller in both directions with a screwdriver. I filled the reservoir with water to test it, and it seems to be okay.
