Charging
The best environmental temperature for
charging is between 15 °C and 35 °C.
• First charge: Using the special cord set,
connect the shaver to an electrical outlet
with the motor switched off and charge the
shaver for at least 4 hours.
• The green charging light blinks when the
shaver is being charged. When the battery
is fully charged, the charging light lights
permanently.
• A full charge provides up to 50 minutes of
cordless shaving time depending on your
beard growth.
• Once the shaver is completely charged,
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
9
reached after several charging/discharging
cycles.
• Re-charging time in the Clean&Renew™:
8 hours.
• Re-charging time with the special cord set:
1 hour.
• If the rechargeable batteries are discharged,
you may also shave by connecting the
shaver to an electrical outlet via the special
cord set.
Shaving
Turn on the shaver («start»):
The pivoting cutting system automatically
adjusts to every contour of your face.
Trimmer:
When the long hair trimmer is activated, it
allows the controlled trimming of moustache
or sideburns.
Tips for the perfect shave
• We recommend that you shave before
washing, as the skin tends to be slightly
swollen after washing.
• Hold the shaver at right angles (90°) to the
skin. Stretch the skin and shave against
the direction of beard growth.
• To maintain 100% shaving performance,
replace the shaver foil and cutter block,
when the replacement light (9) comes on
(after about 18 months), or when the
shaving parts are worn.
Keeping your shaver in top
shape
Cleaning indicator
Your shaver should be cleaned daily in the
Clean&Renew™, and certainly when the yellow
cleaning light (8) 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
5735453_Contour5895_CH390cc Seite 10 Donnerstag, 12. April 2007 11:04 11
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.
Automatic cleaning
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.
Manual cleaning
This appliance is suitable for cleaning
under an open water tap.
Warning: Detach the hand-held part
from the power supply before cleaning it in
water.
Regular cleaning ensures better shaving
performance. Rinsing the shaving head after
each shave under running water is an easy and
fast way to keep it clean:
• Switch the shaver on (cordless) and rinse
the shaving head under hot running water.
A natural based soap may also be used
provided it contains no particles or 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 and the cutter block. Then leave
the disassembled shaving parts to dry.
Alternatively, you may clean the shaver using
the brush provided:
• Switch off the shaver. Remove the shaver
foil.
• Using the brush, clean the cutter block and
the inner area of the shaver head. However,
do not clean the shaver foil with the brush as
this may damage the foil.
Replacement light for shaving parts / Reset
To maintain 100% shaving performance,
replace your foil and cutter block, when the
replacement light for shaving parts (9) comes
on (after about 18 months) or when worn.
10
Change both parts at the same time for a
closer shave with less skin irritation.
(Shaver foil (2) and cutter block (3): 31 S)
The replacement light will remind you during
the next 7 shaves to replace the shaving parts.
Then the shaver will automatically reset the
display.
After you have replaced the shaving parts (foil
and cutter block), use a ball-pen to push the
reset button (10) for at least 3 seconds to reset
the display manually.
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. Do not expose the
shaver to temperatures higher than 50 °C for
extended periods of time.
Environmental notice
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 points provided in your country.
Clean&Renew™
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
5735453_Contour5895_CH390cc Seite 11 Donnerstag, 12. April 2007 11:04 11
small amount of oil, the cleaning procedure
also fulfills the lubrication needs of the shaver.
Important
• 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 laquered 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.
• When cleaning the shaver, its protection
cap should be removed.

Cleaning cartridge
Before using Clean&Renew™
Installing the cartridge
• Press the lift button (1) 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.
11
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.
Operating your
Clean&Renew™
• 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 (3) to lock and
connect the shaver. The cleaning process
will start. The yellow light on the shaver will
flash during the complete process (approx.
5 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 (3).
• 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.
8 weeks.
• Clean the housing from time to time with a
damp cloth, especially the opening where
the shaver rests.
Subject to change without notice.
