balmar mc612 equalizing issues

When I had fully charged my batteries (under way) and verified that my 612 shows a charge stage of 510 I tried to equalize. After programming the regulator for equalizing and starting it my link 2000 showed that I was pumping in about 30 amps or so at 15 volts and rising. My understanding is that you should only equalize at around 4 percent of battery capacity (in my case only about 15 amps). What am I missing here? I tried to amp down (AP mode at about 130) to lower the amps but this choked down the voltage. Is my regulator bad?
