With all 5 units behaving the same, I would expect that the power is still out of range. If the power is too high or too low (see manual for thresholds) the unit will stay on battery power to protect the attached equipment. If you have the software loaded, it will show you what the input AC voltage is at. Otherwise, it could be time for new batteries: http://batteryinternational.com/apc-smartups-1000-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f2.html

SOURCE: infinit loo between online and on battery?

shady545, If units have batteries older than 3 years of age, they may need to be replaced. I suggest you evaluate each unit one by one and try swapping in a new set of 12v 12ah or 18ah fully charged batteries to see if that will clear-up the problem in at least one unit. I had to replace both batteries in my APC1250 when one battery developed a shorted cell. Let me know what you find out with your units. 12fixlouie 30min north of Windy City

APC SURT3000XL UPS


The fault indicator means that there is a fault in the circuitry of the UPS. It could be the control board or another part of the system. (If the batteries were bad, you would see the Replace Battery light illuminate.) If the SURT3000XL is under warranty, contact APC. The standard warranty period is 2 years for repair/replacement. Note: you'll probably have to pay for the shipping of the unit. If the unit is out of warranty, replace it with a new UPS.

I hope this helps.

SUA3000RMI2U won't carry load


Did you run this test without AC input?
Also what happens when you cut off the AC mains without any load connected to it? Will the UPS continue to run or does it switch off as well?

My ups does not give enough back up and the others are not powering


It is usually a battery problem.It is not charging anymore.The battery is the power source for your UPS once the AC source is cut off.Open the unit and there you could locate the battery enclosed inside the UPS box unit.Replace it with the same type and size of battery, observe polarity where the red is (+) positive and black is negative (-).Depending on what the manufacturer used for the color coding but still see where the Positive and Negative wires are connected to.But before you open the unit remember to unplug the unit from the power outlet.

How to extract batteries from an APC Smart UPS 1400


greg milton, Hi, Did you get the top cover off of the "1400" battery back-up? How old were the batteries in the unit? My APC 1250 has two 12v 18ah units inside. It's best to replace batteries every 3 to 5 years! 12fixlouie

I WANT TO CONNECT TWO APC UPS 700 VA UNITS TO SINGLE 24 VOLT BATTERY. BY DOING THIS MY INTENTION IS TO CHARGE THER BATTERIES RAPIDLY WHEN THE ELECTRIC SUPPLY IS RESTORED. IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT TWO UPSs...


waheed70, NO!!!! NO!!! NO!!! DO NOT EVEN THINK OF DOING THAT!!! You may cause catastrophic failure to not one but both APC ups units and will void any warranty you might have!!! If you are in need of longer run time on battery back-up, then start looking into buying an "ONLINE" ups system somewhere in the 5 to 10 kva range. Check out "chloride" systems and "powervar" and "toshiba" and "ONEAC" for info about "true online" battery back-up systems. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

APC Smart-UPS 1000VA shut down and now will not power on. How do I troubleshoot? No power, no lights, nothing and I've never tried to troubleshoot a UPS before. Where do I start?? :-( Thanks Chris


Hello Chris,

I have a similar unit and there is a fuse inside that can blow. Mine did. It worked again after replacing the fuse.

Another option...check the battery connections.

Another option...are the batteries getting old? If so, when they won't reach a certain level of charge the unit will not power on.

Finally, make sure you don't have a blow fuse or popped circuit braker in your home.

Hope this helps?

APC Smart-UPS 1000VA is powered on but not working


Try turning the unit off for a little while, unplug it from the source even. afer about 5 minutes plug it back in and try it again. You may have a bad battery, how old is the unit. UPS batteries should be changed out every 3 year's, max every 5 year's if you want good reliability. At 5 years you are taking a chance.
