It's a good sign if it's still providing backup power. That means the components needed to provide that function are still working. It's probably just the battery. Batteries are easy and inexpensive to replace: http://www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be500u-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f2.html

That's a sure sign that you are in low battery condition, and the inverter is approaching shutdown. You may need to either deep recharge the batteries, with NO load, or replace them completely.

Apc es 500 making a buzzing sound when plugged in


Hi,

Sounds like it could be a bad battery connection or the unit is damaged at the internal components level - probably the charging inverter. You can replace your UPS using APC's Trade-UPS Program: http://buy.apc.com/commerce/storefronts/tradeups/tradein.aspx?storefrontcode=apcetu&countrycode=us&languagecode=en&tradeups_id= Make sure to pay attention to the country/region before you start filling out your information -- the link send you to the USA country.

We also sell them -- the direct replacement unit is a BK500BLK.... $116.70 your price not including shipping. We ship anywhere in the USA.

You may have a battery problem.
Re-chargeable batteries require continual use and do not work after a long period on non use.
