I'd replace the unit, Altho I'd highly recommend replacing it with a progressive dynamics converter with pendant.
Jmo of course.

is the battery old?? if its a switch mode style parallax, all its potential is tied to the battery. then the battery could have a shorted cell, effectively making it a 10 volt. that could give you the symptoms you describe. that battery will suck amperage and be hot to the touch...
