No replies yet, so I'll try...
I have a friend that used an ace250 for a number of years, he liked it and did well with it.
Is it only inside the house that it chatters?
Coil cable is tightened up?
Have you tried turning the sensitivity down?

Well the first question can be answered by simply running a small gold ring under the coil. Searchwise, I kept mine at first one or two discrimination icons-iron-seemed to have better depth. Now the chatter-if at lower sensitivity levels- worries me. It could be a coil or water as from using it in the rain. Good luck.

Are you using it around power lines? If so, that'll make almost any machine chatter. If you're trying it in the house, all of the electrical wiring and electronics can make it chatter.

Well you could send it to Garrett for a overhaul. Their very reasonable. Or contact a sponsor about a machine more fitting with your needs / wallet.
What have you decided s o far?

Have you tried to fin a PDF of the original owners manual on line. Our landlord replaced our stove with a good (used) glass top style with all the bells and whistles so I found the manual and loaded to my hard drive.
