Question Powerdrive 3 Loud Buzz

My Powerdrive 3 charger has started to buzz/vibrate quite loudly when charging the 6-8v batts on my 2010 CC Precedent. Otherwise seems to work OK. Any thoughts?

I've seen a LOT of them do this. Doesn't hurt anything. Just annoying.

Angry Re: Powerdrive 3 Loud Buzz

Dang, now when I plug it in, it buzzes loud for two seconds while amp gage flutters wildly, and then pops the circuit breaker on the front.

Probably a burnt diode, or a really bad connection

I do repair them. but I am in Louisiana

The rectifier or diode strip has failed in the back of the charger. You need to replace it. The correct replacement part is #103517401

PS: When they start making that LOUD HUM, I usually take them apart and use FOAM TAPE to go between every part on it except the diodes, even between the covers and the meter............They make the most noise.
After I do that they pur like a baby kitten
