Question about Xantrex Technology Heart Freedom 20 12 Inverter

Heart Freedom invertor 25/12 - cannot get invertor to function

Unit performed when connected to shore power, but when disconnected, get no function when trying to invert from batteries. From manual, understand that all that is required is to switch on switch. Have tried main a/c switch in both shore power and ship's power positions, and off, but nothing happens.

Is there anything I am doing wrong, or can you advise what I should check out

You are correct, if the unit is wired correctly, all you have to do is turn the inverter on.  The unit should make a bit of noise when the inverter is turned on.

Batteries could be too low, or unit could think batteries are too low because it is not set up for your battery configuration. (voltage, amperage, deep cycle, wet, gel, agm etc.)

I am not sure how you set up that model but the manual should explain it. If you don't have one you can get it online from xantrex.

Heart freedom 20. As soon as shore power is applied the inverter makes a growl sound, like a stuttering switch.


STOP!!! Immediately have the shore power breakers checked by assuring both output legs have EQUAL output. If not they can either burn out the inverter solid states components or the main coach A/C, Generator transfer switch. You can usually check this with a multimeter but the shore power park managers usually have maintenance personnel to check and replace bad pedestal breakers. Does this help?

Rv2012 Inverts but dosnt charge


I have the same problem with my Freedom Marine 25. Assuming it worked previously and you have checked all the obvious things (generator/shore power breaker contacts, etc.), the Xantrex tech says it is likely a small 1/4 amp slow blow fuse on the AC sensing card inside the box, but that the AC transformer may have shorted to cause the fuse to blow. The internal arrangement may be different but remove the cover screws and locate the 2"x2" transformer on the AC sensing card for signs of arcing or charring. If you have a meter, check the transformer coils and if it reads significantly less than ~ 130 ohms, that is likely your problem, which will require taking the unit to an Xantrex authorized service center, since Xantrex does not provide parts or schematics to the general public.

Freedom 20 stopped working after ac breaker tripped


How do you get the PCB out all the 4 screws are out and clips are pushed off the pcb contacts on the sides. Unscrewed the antenna, but not the soldered in bulk antenna mount. I is still locked in somehow? how do I get the board out to look at the keypad buttons so I can see if threre is a bad contact?

Freedom 20 stops passing good AC input after about 15 sec.


This unit does have an idle mode where it will not output without a load. What I am unsure of is if this exists only for invert mode or for both invert and pass through. Try reprogramming the remote to eliminate the idle feature and then see what happens.

I have a Heart Interface Freedom 20 Inverter/Battery Charger installed on a powerboat. The fan (cooling fan?) is making noise - it seems to be rubbling inside the unit. Is there a way to repair? Replace...


The fan can be replaced. It is very similar to some of the PC cooling fans. I've got the same problem (again) and will be replacing it soon. I will give you the fan specs once I remove my fan ( I think it is 4" 120VAC - will let you know when I repair mine).

Shore power won't connect.


The ground and neutral are bonded until a source power is sensed by the machine, then they separate.(pg 24 in your manual). The problem is that the GFI receptacle is faster then the xantrex. One solution is to run the 2 ground wires thru a HEAVY DUTY momentary push button that DISCONNECTS, before it ties into your ground bar on your boat. Hold the button down as you plug in to the dock, count to ten and let it go. The internal bonding will have had plenty of time to separate. If you find a better way.......   let me know too. Steve
