    My fault light keeps coming on. I have hooked it up to two different batteries and cables and the thing refuses to work. Have checked all external power sources and in-line fuse and they are all good. Has to be internal. Any luck finding an answer?

We turned on our generator while our inverter was still plugged in. Can we fix it?

Probably blew either an internal fuse or a diode, open it up, take a look, what do you have to lose?

you inverter was not fully charged because it requires a 110/220 v ac as specified in the manual; to charge it so it is impossible for the aircraft 15vdc to charge it

Can't get power to my RoadPro 1500 DC to AC Power Inverter

I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.

Those starting with the simplest.

1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)

2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
Solution (Replace the fuses)

3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.

If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.

Hope that helps.

Does item have a fuse? Burned out

i have the same one ...and i'm not seeing a fuse, there may be one internally
does the inverter have strong "burnt wire" smell if so it is probably fried.
