Hi,
The charger is controlled by an electronic controller...that would be the most likely problem and the reason for it not shutting down IF the battery is good.
My first reaction is that the battery will prove to be the problem though.

If you need more info and testing the best place to call will be to call the service department at 1-800-991-0466

Hi, whenever a charger will not stop charging, it is usually because it is not "Seeing" the correct charged "Internal Resistance".
This can be for one of two reasons, One, the Battery is faulty, and even though it may appear to charge nevertheless there is an internal problem with the battery. Two, The charger is faulty.

How to tell, the ONLY way is by substitution, with a known good one. Either replace the Charger or Battery and see if the "Problem" follows.
Usually if the charger isn't faulty, then most times it is the battery itself, the internal resistance increases as it ages. IF a wet cell, it may respond to battery rejuvenation, potassium permanganate, Condies crystals, KNOH8 a teaspoon per cell is a great battery rejuvenater.

Battery has liquid on top


The battery is charging with trickle charger. The liquid could be just water from condensation from the recharging process. If the charging is too vigorous, then it can also be sulfuric acid, so rubber gloves are in order. Clean up liquid with gloves on and paper towels. Once dry carefully remove caps and check water level. refill battery with distilled water to top of cell. Check water level at least twice a year. Wear safety glasses too.

Phone won't charge. Dog destroyed charger where it links to phone. bought new universal charger but now am thinking the receiver part of the phone is damaged cuz the new charger fits...loosely...but...


Your dog may have broken a wire inside the phone. You can try to fix or replace it with a new phone. But one more thing you can try to do before spending any more money is try to find a friend who has a charger for your phone (or similar one) and see if it takes a charge that way.

Pump continues to make noise as if its cavitating when there is no water to pump.


If there is no water to pump then it is cavitating. It should turn off when the sump is emptied down and the float drops onto the switch arm
