    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?

Durite inverter


If the unit doesn't have an external fuse and it doesn't reset itself after an overload, it possibly has an internal (onboard) fuse that needs replaced. Possibly de-soldered and re-soldered...

Reverse polarity hook up blew fuse link. Where can i get the correct fuse link to solder into the stanley inverter pc809 800watt?


Hmmmmm, well that`s unfortunate , i can tell you that most electronic devices that connect to low voltage DC supply's are protected bye a protection diode and the fuse link you think it might be is a circuit trace internal.
an 800 watt innverter draws about 80 to 100 amp to produce the 800 watt output and you must have 2 40 amp fuses or 3 30 amp fuses customer replaceable, if you did not damage the components in your device all you kneed to do is to repair the circuit trace and replace the reverse polarity protection diode to restore normal operation

there are no fuse links internal to inverter power supply's

How to fix


If you are lucky, you may have blown the fuse. It is located on the back panel, usually in a little plastic slide out holder, but it can be sometimes found in a tubular container which has a knurled plastic cap.

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

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.
