Most likely, one of the charger diodes is now shorted. It has been my
experience that they do not like being powered up, without batteries to
charge.Trying to charge completely dead batteries will do the same
thing.With no load to stabilize output, the voltages will soar to levels
higher than the PIV of the rectifiers.
