No, it won't short-circuit it and yes, it's technically fine. That said, you won't get an audible notification if there's a power-failure or if e.g. the battery fails and needs to be changed.

Thank You, if the battery fail and i didnot notice it will it cause problem rather then fail to supply power?

I have to ask: how often does the buzzer make noise? If it does so often, there might be something wrong with it... Mine only went of  3 times in 4 Years: when I tested it, when I had a power outtage and when I had to change the batteries...

Well, if the reason for the buzzing is overheating. you might consider to put a fire extinguisher and a fire alarm close to it.

I had a defective UPS literally catch fire at work once. The battery failure alarm was going off, and when I power cycled the UPS, it literally caught fire and started spewing sparks and smoke out the top.

 

An edge case for sure, but I personally would never disable the alarm on a UPS.

 

@Sealth why do you want to permanently silence it?

If it helps, I pulled the buzzer on mine, and now I listen for the relay click to know the UPS is active. If you have the UPS on anything sensitive to power failure (like work/school computers or critical equipment) then you should leave the buzzer since it will indicate the battery is failing before the failure leaves you... powerless ;) I am only using my UPSs for my network equipment and home theater so it's better for me to not have the alarm since none of those devices are super critical (as far as data loss is concerned).
