Problem with getting inverter to work...

My boyfriend just purchased this inverter, for the second time for fear the old one wasn't going to work anymore. Using it for a television. We tried both inverters and no lights are showing when plugged into outlet but works when directly plugged to car battery. Didn't read/can't find directions, does this inverter need to be charged first and if so, how??

If you connected the inverter to a care battery and it worked,it means at first you did not connect it to a battery.NB the inverter must be connected to a battery before it works so get a battery connect it to the inverter with the right terminal i.e the red to red or {+ ve}, the black to back or {-ve} ,if you car battery is a 12volts batery get another one like it for you inverter, but remember that your inverter needs to be pluged to a power source for you to be able to charge your batteries

Inverters works from 12v carr battery or backup battery, you can not charge the inverter you msay killed your inverter if you connected to 120v wall mount...you use the inverter to give you AC (electric) from 12v battery. if your tv is 12v you need to know how much needed to get the correct connrection as output and input.

Always showing alarm EOC,EOP


The system that you described is a closed-loop system. The inverter tells the motor what to do and the encoder send information back to the inverter to verify the operations.

With out knowing part# and serial number of the unit in question, I do not know exactly which inverter you are having problems with.

With E.OC error, there is a lot of current demand on the inverter. This could mean a short in the motor, motor leads, connections or inside of the inverter. This could also be caused by the encoder feedback loop being defective. If the inverter tells the motor to run at 1000rpm and the feedback tells the inverter it is only running at 5rpm, the inverter will send out more current to get the motor up to speed.

Since you are getting multiple errors, there could be other internal problems with the inverter especially if the unit is old and contaminated internally.

Limerick based on Lears nursery rhymes


There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared!-
Two Owls and a Hen,
four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard."


There was a Young Lady of Ryde,
Whose shoe-strings were seldom untied.
She purchased some clogs,
And some small spotted dogs,
And frequently walked about Ryde.

There was an old man in a tree,
Whose whiskers were lovely to see;
But the birds of the air,
Pluck'd them perfectly bare,
To make themselves nests on that tree.


not terribly good in my opinion

My inverter keeps going to falt even though i only use it for a few seconds its only a few months old and has not been used mush its a 1000 2000 max


What are you trying to power with the inverter? Do you know how many watts your appliance need to run? Your 1000 watt inverter needs 83 amps from your battery to drive a 1000 Watt appliance. The minimum size wire you need to hook up the battery to the inverter is a size 6 as short as possible but no more than 25 ft.

I recently purchased a schumacher 410w inverter, while it came on right away and powered my electrical device the cooling fan never came on. Is the fan supposed to run all the time, once its connected.


I recently purchased a Schumaker 410/820 watt inverter. I immediately hooked it up to a brand new deep cell batery I had purchased just prior to receiving this inverter.
I plugged in several devices to make sure the inverter worked and to get some idea of what devices I can expect this unit to handle.
I noticed that the fan only ran when I plugged in a device that drew a certain amount of power from the unit. I also plugged in a CPAP unit to make sure the inverter would operate the unit properly, and noticed that the CPAP only drew 38 to 40 watts of power and the cooling fan on the converter never came on. When I plugged in an oscillating fan it drew around 128 watts from the converter and the cooling fan immediately came on when I turned the fan on. Based on that, I would assume that the cooling fan in the converter only runs when there is enough power being drawn through the inverter to cause the inverter to heat up enough to cause possible damage to or failure of the inverter. I haven't taken the time to find out the power draw at which the cooling fan will run. Hope this helps.

We havve a Westward 1YAY9 1500W inverter which has worked well for a long time. Now it often stops working after 5 minutes and after it has been shut off for a time, will start again. The pump we run is...


It is overheating. A good test for this is to use a soft gel pack that can be put in the freezer. Use and old towel to wrap the ice pack once and set it on top of the inverter for about 20 minutes. Then use the pump. If it runs longer, the inverter is going bad, and will cost more to repair than to replace. Check all wiring for green corrosion as this can also cause overheating, but the fact that you have the same power draw leads me to a bad inverter. 6.5 amps is pushing a 1500 watt pretty hard, try stepping up to a 2000-3000w Westward.

Went u turn it on the red lite comes on and wont turn green and wont work its a road pro rppi-1500w


Sadly replacement is the best option. It is just not cost effective to get the inverter repaired.

The cost starts out about 150.00.

Best option is to take it back to where you purchased it and hope you can get a new one.

Hope this tip helps.

please check the voltage your generator is supplying to the to the inverter because a high voltage and frequency can make the relays in the inverter to make clicking sounds,and also do not allow your inverter batteries to run completely low before you charge it

Trace DR 2412 inverter won't run older front-loading washer


IF your washing machine is a conventional model with a common AC induction motor, waveform isn't the problem. Normal starting current for typical AC induction motors is usually 5 to 7 times the rated running current. Even though that current draw only lasts a fraction of a second, it's marginal for a 2.4 kw inverter's surge capacity. The trick of switching on other small loads (preferably resistive loads like incandescent bulbs) before starting the washer may help. Another area to check is your battery cables and connections The inverter pulls a huge amount of current to produce it's max surge output and even a little resistance in the battery circuit may cause the inverter to trip off. If you've got one of the fancy new electronic controlled washers with a D.C. motor, (so called energy saving or high efficiency models) then the waveform may be an issue and a pure sine wave might be needed.

Vector vec 051D 3000 watt fan won't run anymore, unit overheats


your inverter needs to cool at all times , if the fan does not work,try buying a small standing fan to blow cool air to you machine, it is possible that your heater is making the inverter to over heat please avoid using the heater on the inverter
