If it is intermittent, that sounds like there is a bad connection inside. Braun has a 2 year warranty. If it is only one year old, call Braun at 800-272-8611

All you have to do is take the base apart. Turn it upside down, and there are two plastic clips on the rear portion of the base. Press them in with a key or screwdriver and wiggle the base a bit to remove the inner portion from the outer shell. Make sure you unplug the unit and remove the cleaning cartridge before doing this. Once it is apart, place a small wedge underneath the portion of the electric contact that sticks out to touch the shaver, and press the back of that portion out so that it slightly bends the contact strip and makes it stick out a little further. Then remove the wedge and put the base back together. It will work again, as the contacts can now protrude to touch the shaver and run the cleaning and charging cycle.

Most likely, the batteries are dead and need replaced. You need two batteries and they can be found at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

The Braun foil shavers are well designed and I find they work well for sensitive skin if you prepare properly. Make sure you apply a hot towel to your face followed by a shaving conditioner. When applying the shaver, press lightly. Don't be afraid to go over the same areas several times to get most of the whiskers. Once you do this for about a week, your skin should begin to adapt to the sensation of electric shaving. You'll then be able to use the shaver more aggressively and get a thorough shave.

To disassemble the 8000 Series shaver. Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic. The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece. There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries. This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head. Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer in placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend. A good place for parts, http://shaveroutlet.com/.

I have been shaving with electric razors for 48 years, and the Braun 8595 is by far the best one yet.
I have had the problem of the refusal of the cleaning station to recognize the level of fluid in the cartridge, three times over the last couple of years. It seems to relate to a build up of shavings in the unit. To get it working again I inverted the unit, and carefully flushed water via a small tube, back through the 1cm diameter hole in the underside of the open base. Of course, the unit must then be thoroughly dried before use, or the sparks may fly. Does anyone know how to dismantle the unit for a safer and more thorough clean?

Braun Select Models Electric Shaver Disassembly Tutorial
1. Remove two screws on the bottom, where the power plugs in. Need to remove two ribber plugs first.
2. Pull from shaver head and remove shaver "guts" from case. (It will be hard to remove as it is encased in rubber to make it waterproof, but keep wiggling and tugging)
3. Remove old batteries and replace with new ones.
4. Re-assembly is reverse
