The problem with the charger should be remedied. Because the chargers
are built so compact all of the components are really close together. In
the case of your charger, a capacitor on a board was right over a hold
down bolt for one of the large coils in the charger. I have never seen
this before but some how it was arcing between the capacitor and the
bolt and caused the failure. I replace the whole capacitor board and
covered the bolts with heat shrink to prevent it from happening again. I
hope this gives you some confidence. Sorry for the inconvenience.
