Default 48v Charger popping circuit breaker

I have a Diversified Power International 48V Powerforce series charger that keeps popping the 15amp CB. I replaced the CB and have the same problem.
Anyone familiar with this unit and perhaps have a fix for it?
Thanks again

There should be a placard on the unit somewhere listing the specs of the unit. What is the AC amp draw on that placard? Also, is there any other draw on the AC circuit you are using? A garage refridgerator or compressor perhaps? Television, freezer, etc.?

Is the unit popping it's own internal breaker or the house breaker?

Thanks for the replies, it is the 15 amp CB on the charger itself, have replaced it and it still blows, have checked the AC cord, DC cord, relay and rectifier and all appear ok.
The manufacturer is sending me some new replacement parts and I will attempt to isolate the problem.
Will post back when I finish.

Haved you gone to the STICKIES and looked up the Power Drive Charger test manual to isolate your problem?

This is a aftermarket charger, not a CC Powerdrive.
