    Turning on the 1500 triggers an overload and buzzer warning. Nothing is plugged in to it. What's up?

    the same thing is happening to me. i've removed the battery and reconnected it, allowed it to charge overnight, and it still beeps and indicates an "overload".

    Replaced battery, removed, recharged, and reconnected new battery, and the unit still beeps and indicates "replace battery" and sometimes "overload." How can I find out if there's something wrong with the unit after the battery's been replaced?

    My APC BR1500 goes straight to Overload within seconds of being turned on. Unfortunately, according to APC's FAQ page, the Overload problem means that your unit is defective, and needs to be replaced.

Unit won't turn on

If the overload indicator is lit, the most likely cause is there are more devices plugged into the UPS than is can support. Try unplugging all devices but one and see if the unit functions normally.

You can then try to figure out how many is too many.

Having UPS Model No. BR 1500 in time of opening UPS shows over lode without giving any lode. Battery is new . can you tell me the solution.

Try to reduce your load. in a overload condition the UPS can not tell you what the load is if it has more then the 1500VA your UPS can not put out more then 1000 watts. Battery has nothing to do with the load.
