Angry Freedom 2000 inverter/charger problem

Hi, I'm new to this so Hello! I have a Freedom 2000 inverter charger with a Link 2000R monitor. Older units circa 1992. 2 battery banks and switch left selected to both. In UK so shore power is 230v/50 freq. Units have only ever been on this supply, NOT 120v as in the USA. Til now worked very well but now have a problem I need help with. When the charger function is selected with shore power plugged in, (inverter function OFF) loud 'clicking' noise is heard and my amp load meter swings ON/OFF. rapidly. Selecting charger function OFF and all is well again. Select charger ON and usually within 5 mins load swings ON/OFF again. Fuses etc for the sensing function of the Link checked, all batteries load tested and are OK, so its not a 'Bad Cell' fooling the charger. The batteries are wet cells and the Link is set for this.
Thanks fella's, any clue would be useful, or a trouble shooting guide is there is one around. Regards Barrie (stubby1234)
