Hi everyone

I am having two unusual things happening with my defibrilators,

1.) There are crackling sound inside the machine while holding charge above 300J.

2.) then there is a tendency for the paddles to act magnetic: is that usual with Zoll ( I havent used this machine before and havent noticed this in any other defibs)

thanks

Can't you guess what that crackling sound could be, Shiju? smile

Hi Geoff,

Guessed!!!! the capacitor.. but as I couldn't find any leaking or sort of abnormal things physically, just wanted another guess from someone else, before suspecting/confirming any PCB's inside.

Thank you.
