Let it finish......I have had initial charge last 22 hours once. If the batteries have been left on the shelf for a long time since the electrolyte was put in they could be very low. Use a voltmeter to see what the pack voltage is now? 58-63 is the finished voltage.

Test the voltage of the entire pack. Plus on first, minus on last battery. Full pack volts.

You installed one or more of the batteries incorrectly. Or you got a bad battery. I just installed new batteries today. The charger shut off at about 2hrs. Send a picture of the battery compartment,
