why does battery squeal?

Recommended Posts

I have a sealed deep cycle marine battery that squeals and gurgles while charging from an onboard charge, why does it do this and should I be concerned?

your on board is cooking the battery. the squealing is gas escaping and the gurgling is gas being made. You might have the charger on agm setting which charges at higher volts than lead acid or gell cell batteries can take which cooks them. could be a problem with on board charger too, no automatic switch to maintainer mode. that would cook the battery too.

Good Luck

could it be that the battery is bad or is it definitely a bad charger and how do you tell which it is? My charger is a minnkota 330 D, this should have all the features I need and I am running to larger Cabelas deep cycle batteries.

Have the battery load tested,it could have a bad cell.What happens if you put a different battery on the charger?

Is it just the one battery doing it? I would start with the battery then.

Does it show the other battery's are full? Can you swap leads to a full battery to see if that bank on the charger reads it as full?

I had it tested and was good. The guy told me its got a bad cell or 2 and could last a year or swell up and be done tomorrow. Good thing deep cycles are cheap! Pfffttt!!!

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
