How to Fix Braun Shavers

Braun manufactures small household electrical products, including electric razors for men and women. The razors have rechargeable batteries and an expected lifespan of two years, depending on how often the razor is used and charged. You should replace the battery should it fail to accept or hold a charge. Braun places the razor batteries inside the razor, with no easy access. To access the battery, the razor must be completely disassembled. Don’t attempt this yourself: take the razor to an authorized Braun repair center so you don’t void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Launch a computer browser and navigate to the Braun Consumer Services Center webpage (DapperBeard). Enter your city and state or zip code in the appropriate boxes on the webpage and then press “Enter.” A list of service centers in your area will be displayed. Alternatively, you can call 1-800-272-8611 for a customer service agent to assist you in finding the closest authorized Braun service center.

Contact the authorized Braun service center. Make arrangements to drop off the razor or mail the razor to its office. Depending on the repair center, either one or both options will be available.

The Braun 7505 SyncroPro is an electric shaver that can be used with a battery or cord-charge for a close or longer hair trim shave. According to the Braun 7505 User Instructional Manual, the 7505 can be disassembled for cleaning and maintenance or if parts need replacement, such as the shaver foil or cutter block. The 7505 SyncroPro should be cleaned weekly, while the foil and cutter block should replaced every 18 months, so understanding how to disassemble your shaver is key.

Turn off your Braun SyncroPro 7505. Press the on/off switch so it is in the “0” position, which is the uppermost option of the four shave speeds.

Slide off the foil protection cap, which is the transparent cover that rests on the 7505 SyncroPro’s top shaver foil. Set aside.




Best fishing reels

BEST VALUE – Abu Garcia 6500C3 Ambassadeur C3

Over the years, I have owned a couple of Abu Garcia reels, and the one thing I can say about them is that the never break. In keeping with their long career at building affordable, long lasting reels, the 6500C3 is a great deal for the $100 price tag. Attention to quality, ruggedness and durability make this reel one of the most dependable on the market.


BEST OF THE BEST – Hardy Zane Ti Fly Reel

At a mere $8,000, this beautiful reel from Hardy is a true work of art, considering it takes almost 150 hours of skilled machining to make a single one. The “Ti” stands for titanium, which is the most durable metal known to man. It is as strong as steel, but much lighter and non-corrosive, which makes this reel ideal for any environment, including saltwater. That said, this reel is considered to be almost indestructible.


FOR THE KIDS – Zebco Spincast Fishing Combo

Need a rod and reel combo for a youngster who wants to learn to fish? It’s a Zebco so it functions great like they always have. It’s a nice little kit for a kid to get started and mess around with. At only 5′ long, it comes pre-spooled with 10 lb. test monofilament, so it’s good to go right out of the package. A good deal at $20 and is on KE fishings list of fishing rod reviews.


NEW INNOVATION – WaveSpin Tangle-Free Reels

Anyone who has fished knows the frustration of tangles and bird nests that have left fishermen pull out their hair since the invention of the modern spinning reel in 1950. With the single simple innovation of the patented “wave spool”, tangles are literally a thing of the past. I tested one of these with my 8-year-old grandson, and he had a great time fishing tangle free for an entire afternoon. Retailing for under $50, these reels are a bargain at any price.
