Why won't my toothbrush turn on?

I have tried charging my brush, but no matter what the toothbrush will not turn on. The charger works fine on my other brush that came with the set.

If you have used this toothbrush for a while it might be that the rubber of the button isn't pressing hard enough on the button inside the toothbrush. Remove the rubber-button with a small screwdriver and place a small drop of hotglue on the rubber. Let the glue cool down and put the rubber back in place. This will fix the problem most likely.

If the item is very old, the rubber button may not come off but tear. Just open (tear) one side and you will see the metal button. Press it with a small screwdriver and it will work if charged up. Push the rest of the rubber top back in. You just saved some money. A new battery replacement will be next.


I had the same problem after not using my toothbrush for a couple of months ,( I was in hospital at the time) but my clever daughter-in-law put my toothbrush handle into a mug of boiling water a couple of times and lo and behold it now works perfectly.


Eventually the rubber button on my toothbrush became totally trashed and unusable. I removed the rubber button and surrounding rubber, inserted a BB over the little metal button, put a couple of wraps of cloth medical tape over the BB and around the tooth brush, and the toothbrush works great.

Why won't my toothbrush turn on?

The handle has 2 buttons, ensure the correct button is being pushed. The mode button will not turn the toothbrush on.

Motor comes on buzzed and brush head does not move


Design flaw. Crud may have built up around the perimeter of the button. I took a pick and scraped around the button being sure to get in around the sides of the button. After each use I take a hot wash cloth and swipe around the button.
