Question about APC Smart-UPS 1000VA UPS System

1 Answer

Battert tab broke when attempting to remove (replace) batteries. Cannot get old batteries out of Smart UPS1000. Front-most battery appears to have swelled.

Purchased replacement batteries but cannot use them until I can get the old batteries out. Without the pull-out tab this seems impossible. I've tried everything.

You'll need to remove the cover and battery cage from the unit. I've run into this before, just take your time and be careful there are likely some sharp edges inside.

When the batteries overheat and swell, they press against the metal in the unit and get wedged in.

I found a related post about APC 3000s.

SOURCE: APC Smart UPS 1500 will not start.

It could be that the cable to the front-panel got damaged during the battery replacement.  After all these years you would think APC would improve that aspect of their design.  All I can suggest is inspecting the cable and where it connects to the front panel.

You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.

To replace the batteries, start by removing the foils and cutters. Then, gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front. This will reveal two screws at the bottom. Remove screws. Then gently pry off the silver metal plate that is at the top of the shaver. You can then gently pry the front and back case apart.
Inside, you will find a circuit board with the batteries attached. For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Will not charge!


The battery is, most likely, the problem and needs to be replaced. To open model 4501 shaver, remove the two round screw covers on the bottom and then remove the screws underneath. Remoe the swivel frame at the top by removing the two tiny screws. Make note as to the right and left side of the swivel frame so you put it back on the same way it came off. You can then seperate the front and back of the shaver by seperatig it at the bottom first. Once opened, you will find a circuit board with one battery attached. You will find a replacement battery at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

Not shaving close enough.


This problem is usually cause by a worn out shaving head (foil and cutters). Braun suggests that you change these every 12-18 months for best performance. You will find replacements at shaveroutlet.com for your model 4501 Braun shaver. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/foil-cutter-fit-braun-4000-series-flex-control-twin-control-p-146.html

It is also possible that your shaver is running too slowly due to an old battery if you've never replaced it. If you require a new battery, it can also be ordered from shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-battery-aa-nimh-p-108.html

To change the battery you will need to be able to do a little soldering. Open the shaver by removing the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver and then the screws underneath. You will also need to remove the foil and cutters and then the swivel frame which is attached by two tiny screws. Once removed, you will be able to open the shaver from the bottom and seperate the front and back. Remove the circuit board to easily get to the battery.
Note: The tabs on this type battery will work for most applications however they may be slightly different than some original equipment. For these instances, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather that removing them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can them solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs

Remove 2 screws on the back to remove outer cover. Once removed, you will see 3 more screws that must be removed on the inner cover. Remove screws and cover to get to the battery.
