Tips for the perfect shave
For best results, Braun recommends you follow 3 simple steps:
1.Always shave before washing your face.
2.At all times, hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to your skin.
3.Stretch your skin and shave against the direction of your beard growth.
B Keeping your shaver in top shape
Your shaver should be cleaned daily in the Clean&Renew, and certainly when the yellow cleaning light (7) shines constantly after shaving. If this is not done, the yellow light will go out after some time. The shaver’s electronics will then assume it has been cleaned manually and a new calculation of the time when the next cleaning is required will be started.
Once the shaver is put into the Clean&Renew, it is cleaned automatically (see «C Clean&Renew»).
Manual cleaning is recommended only when the Clean&Renew is not available, e. g. when travelling.
The shaver head is suitable for cleaning under running tap water. Warning: Detach the shaver from the power supply before cleaning
the shaver head in water.
Regular cleaning ensures better shaving performance. Rinsing the shaver head under running water after each shave is an easy and fast way to keep it clean:
•Switch the shaver on (cordless) and rinse the shaver head under hot running water. You may use liquid soap without abrasive substances. Rinse off all foam and let the shaver run for a few more seconds.
•Next, switch off the shaver, remove the shaver Foil & Cutter cassette (1) and let it dry.
•If you regularly clean the shaver under water, then once a week apply a drop of light machine oil onto the long hair trimmer (2) and shaver Foil & Cutter cassette (1).
Alternatively, you may clean the shaver using a brush:
•Switch off the shaver. Remove the shaver Foil & Cutter cassette and tap it out on a flat surface.
•Using a brush, clean the inner area of the shaver head. However, do not clean the shaver Foil & Cutter cassette with a brush as this may damage it.
Replacement light for shaving parts/Reset
To maintain 100% shaving performance, replace the shaver Foil & Cutter cassette (1), when the replacement light for shaving parts (8) comes on (after about 18 months) or when worn.
The replacement light will remind you during the next 7 shaves to replace the foil and cutter cassette. Then the shaver will automatically reset.
After you have replaced the Foil & Cutter cassette (1), press the on/off switch
(4) for at least 5 seconds to reset the counter.
While doing so, the replacement light blinks and goes off when the reset is complete. The manual reset can be done at any time.
Preserving the batteries
In order to maintain the optimum capacity of the rechargeable batteries, the shaver has to be fully discharged (by shaving) every 6 months approximately. Then recharge the shaver to full capacity.
This product contains rechargeable batteries. In the interest of protecting the environment, please do not dispose of the product in the household waste at the end of its useful life. Disposal can take place at a Braun Service Centre or at appropriate collection sites provided in your country.
Braun Clean&Renew has been developed for cleaning, charging and storing your shaver. Clean your shaver daily in the Clean&Renew.
During the automated cleaning process, the shaver is switched on and off at intervals to obtain best cleaning results. Since the specially formulated cleaning fluid contains a small amount of oil, the cleaning procedure also fulfils the lubrication needs of the shaver.
•Only use the power supply cord set supplied with the shaver.
•In order to avoid any leakage of the cleaning fluid, place the appliance on a flat, stable surface. Do not tip, move suddenly or transport in any way if a cleaning cartridge is installed.
•Do not place the appliance in a mirror cabinet, nor store it over radiators, nor place it on polished or lacquered surfaces. Do not expose to direct sunlight.
•The appliance contains highly flammable liquid. Keep it away from sources of ignition. No smoking.
•Keep out of reach of children. Do not refill cartridge. Use only original Braun refill cartridge.

Replacing the cartridge

The used cartridge can be disposed in the household waste.
Operating your Clean&Renew
