Back UPS CS 350 Circuit breaker

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/21/2012


i recently had the battery go out on my CS 350. When it did the Overload light was on and the alarm sounded continuously. Of course, nothing worked when plugged into the UPS. When pulgged directly into the wall, everything worked except the iMac. Stone dead. Gulp.

The next day I tried it again - the iMac started ????

Jump ahead, replaced battery, plugged everything in. Modem and backup drive started up. IMac was dead again after working a week plugged directly into the wall.. ????? Unplugged iMac, replugged into the wall - still dead.

At this point my questions are:
Could the UPS Be causing this odd behavior? Does the Circuit breaker need replacing as well ? The breaker button seems pushed in and loose. Also, CCould the UPS be in a state that causes the iMac to "go to sleep"?

Thanks

Opps Q's got deleted somehow.

They are:

Does circuit breaker on the UPS need to be replaced? (It seems pushed in and loose)
Could the current state of the UPS be causing the iMac to refuse to start? (temporarily)
Is therea way to test the UPS further.? (other devices work plugged into the UPS)

Any suggestions would be Much appreciated.
