Electric shavers can stop working efficiently for various reasons, but it is usually something that you can fix on your own without buying more parts and spending money. A Braun shaver is a good-quality, trusted brand name for men's electric shavers. There are a couple tricks to try to see if you can get yours working again, or working more efficiently.
Things you need
Shaver oil lubricant
Air duster spray
Charge the Braun shaver completely if it is electric. Sometimes, the battery pack may need to be replaced even if it is charged regularly, such as a mobile phone. Take it into a men's bodyworks garage store to see if they can change it for you.
Replace the foil and cutter every 9 months to keep it sharp and unclogged. Sometimes the mechanisms in these parts can wear down, causing the Braun shaver to work more slowly and less efficiently.
Check out the foil and cutter on the inside if the problem is not fixed yet. Unplug the shaver. Depending on the type of Braun shaver it is, there will either be a pressure button or screw to take out to get inside the foil and cutter. Clean the screen with a small brush. Remove the blades and use air duster spray to clean them.
Obtain shaver oil lubricant and lubricate all parts inside the foil and cutter. Sometimes, lubrication is the key to get the Braun shaver working well again.
Clean the Braun shaver at least once a month thoroughly to help it have a long life. If the problem still is not fixed, you may need to bring it to the manufacturer for bigger problems.
