Unit is switching to battery power for now reason.
I purchased this unit used about 1 year ago. It had new batteries installed at the time of installation. This week it started having problems. First our server began turning off, then booting up, turning off repeatedly. We removed the Smart-ups 1400 and this solved the problem. I had the batteries tested and all show to be in good condition. I reinstalled the batteries and plugged the unit in with nothing plugged into it. after about 10 min, the unit starts beeping and begins switching to battery power. If I turn it off and back on, it does the same thing all over again. I'm trying to find out what could be wrong.

The first thing I would suggest it to verify that power is provided to the unit. You should get a display on the face of the indoor unit if there is power. If there is power, try turning the outdoor unit off for a few seconds and back on to reset the controller. If your unit is like I think it is, the indoor unit receives its power and control signal from the outdoor unit, then the remote utilizes a rf signal to control the system. Also try new batteries in YOUR remote.
The battery is not easily replaceable. It's a 1.2 volt, 80ma
Nickel-metal hydride battery, that is soldered to the circuit board. I
opened the back of the switch to find the battery. The one in this
switch was in bad shape. It looks like the battery broke apart, but
wasn't leaking. The switch is less then a year old. Bad design.
just opened this up today and am going to look for a replacement
battery. But soldering will obviously be involved to get the a new
battery back in place.
2 years is generally about it for the battery on the C330. You most likely need a new battery. Charging it on or off does not matter. Run it with the back light on a dimmer mode to increase battery life for now.
I install and work on these everyday. If you hooked up the transfer switch you probable have a control wire wrong. check the utility power sense wire. That lets it no when to start in auto. it could be a relay or fuses. or a control board.
You may have to install new batteries, a few times. The Capacitor will **** the life out of the batteries as it builds up its charge. I have a Hasselblad D-Flash 40 this happened to. Bought as Mint. Not used in over 1 year. When I received it, I was absolutely pissed that I bought more ebay junk. But, I persisted. I think I went through 30 batteries, before the Capacitor rejuvenated itself. Try. Best of luck.
In our office, I have had to replace UPS batteries AGAIN two years after I replaced the original batteries in the units. I had purchased the replacement batteries locally, so I don't know if the brand of replacement batteries was not as good as the original batteries or what. But your weak battery light is not flashing ... I would try a replacement battery (if it isn't too expensive) but I know that some of the older batteries are no longer used in the newer UPS units so if the problem wasn't the battery you are stuck with a new battery and nothing to use it for.

INSTALLING BATTERIES IMPORTANT:Read the section SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER before installing the batteries for the first time.
1.Remove the rear cover of thermometer. Install 2 new AA batteries. Replace battery cover.
2.Loosen 4 screws on rear battery cover of the Remote Sensor and slide battery cover off.
3.Install 2 new AA batteries .
4.After batteries are installed, the remote sensor will begin transmitting and automatically register to the Thermometer
(within range) after several minutes. However, you can also press the small button in the battery compartment (labeled Tx) to register the Remote Sensor to the Thermometer immediately
5.Replace battery cover and tighten 4 battery screws. Make ure that the battery cover is fully on and tightened to assure a watertight seal.
SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER
The thermometer can monitor up to two different Remote Sensors on two separate channels. Add-on remote sensors can be purchased separately and are compatible with the GE Wireless Thermometer/Clock (model GE5805WS4) as well as this unit. When first installing, always insert batteries into the Thermometer first, then into the Remote Sensor.
The thermometer uses random security code technology-it will learn the random code of the first Remote Sensor it detects and log in as channel 1. Channel 2 will register in the same way. NOTE: Registered channels will be erased when the batteries of the Thermometer or Remote Sensor are removed. When replacing batteries for a Remote Sensor, remember to clear the corresponding channel of the Thermometer in this way:
1.Remove batteries from the remote sensor (step 2 of installing batterie)
2.Select the channel that you would like to clear by pressing the CH button on the Thermometer until this channel number is displayed.
3.Hold the CH button for 3 seconds to clear the channel
4.Follow steps 3-5
MOUNTING THE REMOTE SENSOR AND THERMOMETER
Remote Sensor is suitable for outdoor mounting (watertight) at a range up to 100 feet from the Thermometer. HOWEVER, HE UNIT SHOULD NOT BE MOUNTED IN A POSITiON WHERE IT WILL BE SUBMERSED IN WATER, OR EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT, OR NEAR OTHER SOURCES OF HEAT OR COLD (I won't bother typing the rest) except for:
LOW Battery icon for the sensor will show up on either the
ch 1 or ch 2 display depending on which sensor is losing battery power.
Battery life 6 months
Temp Range Therm 32 to 122 deg F
Remote Sensor -58 to 158 deg F *
*Alkaline batteries can freeze temporarily at temps below -4 deg F. In this condition, the Remote Sensor cannot accurately transmit temp info to the Thermometer. This limits the effective minimum temp fo the Remote Sensor to -4 deg F
Operational Range....>50ft(and up to 100ft)(less interferances)
RF Channel ....refresh to "---" if no signal received in 60 minutes
