SOURCE: Wiring Freedom 20 inverter

make sure your new inverter is made for 220 volt supply as that is what the red wire represents. its the other leg of a 220 circuit and should not be connected to your new inverter until you read the manual to see if it is designed for this and if so how to wire it in. it could cause you are the unit serious harm if you connect a 110 inverter to a 220 circuit. consult an rv repair shop or a good electrition if you cant find the needed info. it may actually be printed on the side of the inverter as well.

Yes, *if* you can find an exact replacement and get someone to sell it to you. In order to protect their propriety designs, Xantrex only provides OEM replacement parts to its factory authorized service network, but you might find one of them locally who would be willing to sell you the part, especially if the unit is on a boat (a Marine Freedom 25?), and can't be brought to them.

SOURCE: I have a xantrex 2000 watt freedom 458 freedom

this isn't an answer but i would like to just clear the water a little. how old is the unit? you say it the inverter works when on shore power ( 110v A.C. wall plug or 220 ) but it will not charge the batteries while hooked up to shore power? are you trying to use a generator to run the inverter and charge the batteries? I just need to a little more so i can better understand you problem and help you better
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

I have a simplicity freedom Model S10E we cleaned out the hose and now it will not self adjust to my carpets. I have one carpet that is higher and its hard to push and I have a rubber smell

The rubber smell is the belt slipping up against the roller since it does not have enough friction to fully turn the roller. Either fix the adjustment for a high carpet or install a tighter belt that can cope with the job.

I have a simplicity freedom F3700.2 upright vacuum. It has been working wonderfully until now. I plug it in and it won't start. I have tried removing the bottom and cleaning the roller, the bag isn't...

Sounds like a break in cord or plug somewhere. I am not familiar with the particular vacuum myself. Another thought I have when looking around your vacuum cleaner have you seen a red reset button anywhere at all?

Or by chance does your vacuum cleaner have a plug comes off....... (i.e. like a computer)

a few thoughts

Im trying to replace a fan on a simplicity freedom f3300 vacum. HOW DOES THE OLD FAN COME OFF? It seems to be pressed on but I dont want to brake anything.

Assuming you have the motor out of the fan housings, check to see if you can move the fan around clockwise/counter-clockwise. If the fan is not moveable, the fan has probably melted to the motor housing. Replacing the motor is recommended as the plastic motor housing under the fan is probably damaged/melted. It could still be fixed but there is a possibility of damaging the housing. If after removing the fan following the directions below be sure to remove/trim any melted plastic away from housing before replacing fan. Not trimming the plastic could result in your new fan melting again to the housing when the machine is turned on. If you have an older model pay careful attention to the carbon brush area, if there are plastic posts holding the carbon brush springs, these are easy to break.

If the fan is movable, remove the nut and washers from fan. Use two large flat head screwdrivers and place them opposite of each other under the bottom lip of the fan between the fan and motor housing. (it might be a little easier if you have an extra pair of hands to hold the motor). With the flat heads in place, push the handles of the flatheads toward the side of the motor where the belt shaft is. If the fan does not pop off rotate the position of the screwdrivers and try again. Pay close attention that the fan washer is installed before replacing your new fan. after installing the new fan, rotate it several times making sure it isn't rubbing anywhere.

If you need any further help feel free to contact me.

Simplicity freedom vacuum has a burnt rubber smell

If the belt is continually wearing out I would think that the brush cylinder is not free to rotate. Take the belt off and ensure that the brush cylinder moves freely. If is does not, then you need to investigate why - probably something wound round it that has jammed it.

You can let the vacuum run alittle longer so the bag fills up with air, also make sure that the bag in on correctly and you have the right bag for the unit. Let me know if this helps.
