Question about Pride Health & Beauty
Sounds like you might have bad batteries. It is OK for a battery charger to get warm as it charges batteries, but getting hot indicates the charger is working too hard charging poor/old batteries. Do a load test on the batteries with a load tester or use a DVM at the charging port on the joystick. I can provide more specific information on how to do this. There are other more specific, easier checks looking for disconnected or loose battery connections, disconnected/broken cables, etc. The on board chargers for this model were very problematic with issues including drive inhibit and outright failures with the early black Soneil versions. The new CTE chargers are much more reliable. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: charger does not seem to
How old are your batteries? Have they been charged regularly? (ie: every night) I have a hunch it may be a battery problem rather than the charger. The batteries should be load tested with an automotive load tester, or you could take the batteries to a local service station to have them tested. If they test poorly, both batteries need to be replaced.
