Question about Schumacher 10 Amp Fully Automatic/Manual Charger by
Turns on but does not charge the battery
indicator needle does not move to lower amp levels
fully charged light does not come on
how to find out the problem
how to repair
any general schematics or wiring diagrams for chargers
A battery that might sit for a month at a time, would only need a trickle charge or about 1 amp, a charger of this type can stay hooked to the battery for the whole month. A 10 amp would be for a quick charge or only about 4 - 12 hours depends on how fast the battery lost the charge. A 10 amp charge would cook the battery if left for days.

SOURCE: I have a Schumacker Model
Quite simply - the unit has suffered component failure - most likely more than one. Capacitors are the usual source of noisy 'bang' or 'pop' sounds, followed by diodes and bridge rectifiers. If you have some knowledge of electronics, you can attempt repair, but, if none, I suggest leaving possible repairs to someone who does.
The humming sound you hear is the transformer under stress, and, if left connected, it too will die.
