APC Smart-UPS 1500va Bad Board? Bad Fan?
I recently inherited an UPS from work. It looked practically brand new (very clean, no dust), but the company was going to get rid of it. Anyway, the battery was dead so I bought a replacement and swapped it in with no problem. However, whenever I’ve suffered from a power outage, the fan kicks on (as it should) but the fan never shuts off once power is restored and battery fully charged. On top of that, the fan makes a very loud noise that almost sounds like a helicopter.
I messaged APC and they said it was out of warranty and the issue could be a board.
After all of this, my question is: Is the board replaceable? If so, would anyone know a company that can service it or how to acquire a replacement board?
I’d really not like to shove out $600 if possible for a replacement.
