Hi logman, I would say that is not the typical noise a normal UPS should make (to me it sounds like an issue with the inverter). If the UPS is still under warranty I would suggest calling in to tech support at 1 800 800 4272 for further troubleshooting.

I wouldn't worry. I have a BR1500GI and it makes EXACTLY the same sound when switched to battery.
