Hmmm. You shouldn't try to repair a charger. There are alot of capacitors in a charger that will hold power even if the charger is unpluged.

So unless you are a qualified electrician with the proper equipment I would take it down to someone that does.

Capacitors just need to be discharged anyway, no big deal. Just not on yourself.

so you are saying there isn't a single capicitor on any of the boards in the charger? There is nothing in the charger that could hold a residual charge?

That would make them like the worlds first piece of electronics that didn't. If you have a desktop computer. unplug it then hit the power button. I beg ya it lights up the lights and the hard drive spins. same thing with a stereo.

Unless detriot really knows what the issue is with his charger like the cables or something, I wouldn't suggest he start opening the case and messing with stuff.

The only components in a 48 Volt charger are a transformer, ammeter, fuse, relay, diode, and circuit breaker. They're very simple. A 36 volt charger on the other hand, has a capacitor and a timer in addition to all of the above parts (give or take a few according to model)

Ok Ok so we got that out of the way,lets see if we can find the mystery problem with the charger.Sooo what is it doing when you plug it in? Does it make a metallic click? or what?

Yes this is a forum to walk folks through fixing their own stuff instead of going to a dealer if we can.Sometimes we can help and sometimes we cant.
