The best environmental temperature for charging is between 60 °F to 95 °F / 15 °C to 35 °C. Do not expose the shaver to temperatures higher than 122 °F / 50 °C for extended periods of time.
•Using the special cord set (10), connect the shaver to an electrical outlet with the motor switched off.
•When charging for the first time, leave the shaver to charge continuously for 4 hours. Subsequent charges will take about 1 hour.
•A full charge provides up to 45 minutes of cordless shaving time depending on your beard growth.
•Shave without the cord. With normal use the shaver will be charged automatically after every cleaning in the Clean&Renew™ (see separate use instructions).
•Maximum battery capacity will only be reached after several charging/discharging cycles.
•If the rechargeable batteries are discharged, you may also shave by connecting the shaver to an electrical outlet via the special cord set.
The green charging lights (5) show the charge status of the batteries. The green charging light blinks when the shaver is being charged
or switched on. When the battery is fully charged, all green charging lights shine permanently, provided the shaver is switched on or connected to an electrical outlet.
Press the on/off switch (4) to operate the shaver (picture).
The flexible shaving foils automatically adjust to every contour of your face (picture).
Long hair trimmer
To trim sideburns, moustache or beard, slide the long hair trimmer (2) upwards.
Precision setting switch («lock»)
For precise handling in hard to shave areas (e.g. under the nose) slide the switch (3) to the right to position «lock». The centre trimmer and one foil will be lowered.
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.
BKeeping 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. During the cleaning process in the Clean&Renew™ the yellow light will flash and will go off after approx. 4 hours when cleaning is finished.
Once the shaver is put into the Clean&Renew™, it is cleaned automatically (see separate instructions). Manual cleaning is recommended only when the Clean&Renew™ is not available, e. g. when travelling.
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 appliance contains rechargeable batteries. To protect the environment, do not dispose of the appliance in the
household waste at the end of its useful life. Disposal can take place at a Braun Service Center or appropriate collection sites.
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 special 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.
3Lift button for cartridge exchange
Before using Clean&Renew™
Installing the cartridge
•Press the lift button (3) to open the housing.
•Hold the cartridge down on a flat, stable surface (e.g. table). Carefully remove the lid from the cartridge. Slide the cartridge into the base as far as it will go.
•Slowly close the housing by pushing it down until it locks.
Replacing the cartridge
After having pressed the lift button to open the housing, wait for a few seconds before removing the used cartridge.
Before discarding the used cartridge, make sure to close the openings using the lid of the new cartridge, since the used cartridge will contain contaminated cleaning solution.
The used cartridge can be disposed in the household waste.
•Connect your Clean&Renew™ with the cord set to the mains electricity supply. The special socket at the back is adjustable to save space. After each shave, switch the shaver off and put it into the Clean&Renew™, upside down and with the front showing.
•Push the start/release button (1) to lock and connect the shaver. The cleaning process will start. The yellow light on the shaver will flash during the complete process (approx. 2 minutes cleaning,
4 hours drying).
•Do not interrupt the cleaning process, as it leaves the shaver wet and not fit for use. If interruption is needed nonetheless, press the start/release button (1).
•When cleaning is finished, the yellow light will go off and the shaver is ready for use. To release it, push the start/release button.
•A cleaning cartridge should be sufficient for about 30 cleaning cycles. When the level indicator (4) has reached the «min» mark, the remaining fluid in the cartridge is sufficient for about 5 more cleaning cycles. Then the cartridge should be replaced, when used daily approx. every 4 weeks.
•The hygienic cleaning solution cartridge contains alcohol which, once opened, will naturally evaporate slowly into the
surrounding air. Each cartridge, if not used daily should be replaced after approx.
•Clean the housing from time to time with a damp cloth, especially the opening where the shaver rests.
