Turn it off IMMEDIATELY -- something has short-circuited, and something is BURNING.
Disconnect it, and responsibly recycle it. Purchase a new one.

APC XS 1300 getting A04 error code. Pulled battery and reinserted plugged unit back in and it seems to be working fine now. But for how long?

Good that you got it working. How old is it? Warranty? What does the error code mean? If it is a charging error, the charging system may have a problem. Talk to customer service or email. They like to know how their products are doing. I would guess there is a battery charge level meter via their software and a USB cable connection? If so, keep watching It should give you early warning of battery failure. Or better yet, create your own "controlled" power failure and see how long the battery supports system power. Otherwise, take the battery to battery store. They can test it for you and tell you condition status.

Apc xs800 new batteries

I Bought two RBC32's and had to hook them up to the connector and did it wrong on the first try. Make sure you connect the yellow to the Red terminal on one battery and the Black on the other, then connet the remaining red to red on one and black to black to the other. Once I did that and plugged it back in everything worked fine.

Have a APC xs-900 that indicates overload and there is nothing plugged into it. New battery did not help.

change the internal fan its a 18-24V type change it with a ball bearing type and yes a 12 volt will also work, with 120v input fine and under medium load the fan is only supplied with about 15 volts and only reaches 24 volts if the load shoots up or there is a power fail situation
