Electric Toothbrush doesn't work sometimes

I have an Oral B Electric Toothbrush.
Recently, it only works occasionally, meaning today it works and tomorrow it doesn't. I have tried charging it on a different charger, but that didn't help. I also tried charging it from a different outlet plug, but that didn't help either. Thus, I believe it's the toothbrush itself and not the charger. Any ideas on fixing it? Can the toothbrush be opened up? Possibly it's a loose connection inside or maybe the battery has reached it's maximum number of recharges. Is this possible? I've had it for about 3 years. Thank you

Rechargeable batteries eventually wear out.

Electric Toothbrush

Agreed, but the strange thing is that you'll be using the toothbrush and then suddenly it just stops for 2 seconds...and then you turn or tilt it and it starts working again. I really think it's some sort of internal electrical connection problem, but I don't think that these brushes are really meant to be opened up. It's an Oral B. Any further ideas?
