Accenta 8 tripping power and not charging battery

Recommended Posts

My neighbour has an Accenta 8 mini and it occasionally trips the main power breaker. But it also doesn’t appear to be charging the internal battery. 

Another issue is that when it trips, the external sounder sounds like a bird ‘cheeping’ for a few minutes before the sounder kicks in properly. Any ideas because at 05:00 this morning I wasn’t in the mood to investigate too much! Thanks

If the battery is duff then the charger is working overtime and will also get damaged, this in turn could cause the trip.

 

Sounds like it requires a good service.

Thanks Norman,

 

the battery was changed recently I believe. Could a faulty battery in the bell box cause it and The ‘chirping’ ?

assuming its peizo type sounder...

 

could be shafted, might get louder by letting it "ring"

 

personally I 'd want to bin the controls & sounder, putting new shiny kit in its place
