Question about GE 26928GE1 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Battery holds a charge for a short time only

Replaced battery about 2 weeks ago. Charge does not seem to hold for long. Measured base output voltage to phone at approx 10.4 vDC. Is this correct or in range? Measured battery voltage after attempted recharge is approx 2.3 vDC. Would this be symptomatic of inadequate charge time - 12 hours?

My makita battery is not taking a charge is it the base or the battery

The most easiest way to be sure is using multimeter. 25290419-3h5pkc2unruv115jj1tsixdi-2-0.jpg
Set your multimeter to highest dc volt. All chargers have output voltage information written on it (Must be written as "output" value or "sec"). Measure charger's output pins (which connects to battery) and be sure measured value matches with output voltage value written on charger label. If it doesn't match each other, buy a new charger and proceed with below part.

Discharge your battery. Once you discharge battery; be sure that there is no charge at all. Charge battery for 15 min. Measure battery power with multimeter again. If there is no charge at your battery, it is dead and you need another battery.

Will not hold charge and voltage gage is not working

Is the alternator putting out a charging current when running? Measured at alternator then at battery. If no at alternator, replace alternator if high mileage, if low mileage replace regulator. The part the harness plugs into.

If yes at alternator and no at battery, check for continuity across ammeter and check the voltmeter for a short. The ammeter should read essentially zero ohms and the voltmeter should read about 15,000 to 40,000 ohms when measured with an analog ohm meter.

If those check okay, check for a wiring fault or a blown fuse on the power distribution block or a broken fusible link. Fusible links can be checked by gentle tension on them, those that have failed will pull apart.

Mower runs great, problem is battery goes dead, its a new battery, i recharged it, measured the voltage at 13.41, started it, it measured 14.47 volts then drops a few decimals every minute like 14.42 after...

Try disconnecting the battery and note if the voltage drops.
If it does, the battery is not holding a charge.
If it keeps its voltage, the problem lies in a minor short in the mower.
You have to determine which item has the problem first.

Your alternator is going bad. It should only put out 13-14 volts and therefore is overcharging your battery. This causes your battery to get a dead cell. If you replace the alternator and battery, make sure you check the cables for any shorts.
