Question about Power Inverters

1 Answer

No power output from my vector 1000w inverter.

The green light is on, the red light flashes. Every time the red light flashes the fan starts and the power level lights flash and my driving lights dim all at the same time. When I initially installed the inverter it worked fine. After I tested it with a 500w light I unplugged the light and left the inverter on for approx. 10 mins. When I returned, the symptoms had begun. Any ideas? Thanks

Buy a different brand of inverter. Yours has developed a short which the protection circuit is catching. It then tries a restart but fails all over again. Most likely o/p short which looks like an overload to the inverter.

I bought two veco51d 3000 watt inverters made by vector and conectted with two positive and two negative cables to a good battery 12.6 volts load test at 750 cranking amps and both inverters light up and...


Hello, I hear you. Was the reason to supply 240 volts? When you try the inverters separately, do you get 120Volts output? Let us look at the units working individually first and go from there.

Inverter run on batteries sir, and if these batteries are not charged, the run time {the number of hours it will work} reduces.
S0, you will need to connect the inverter to a power source.Theses will allow your batteries to be charged and enable it to run for a long period of time.
Make sure your batteries are still OK.i.e working properly

Vector 2500 watt inverter red led fault light no output. Model veco56d.


There is a fuse on these things at the back of the case. Could be in a slide out plastic holder, or in a round holder with a knurled screw or bayonet type cap. If this fuse is not blown, then the news is not good.

I have a vector 3000 watt inveter red fault light is on, wont power a 6.5 amp fuel pump


Check that ground is correctly connected. If nuetral is provided, ensure it too is connected. Your total load is 780 watts. Check power in and ground out of the supply side. There may be a fuse in the inverter on the output side also, replace if necessary. If fault light does not go out after these checks, you will need to contact Black and Decker who manufactures the vector series now.

2nd season with 400 watt vehicle 1024 inverter. The


Restating the question - 400 watt inverter is turned on and running with the vehicle turned off.
After starting vehicle the red light of the inverter is on with no power output from the inverter.
If you turn the inverter off then on inverter operates normally.

Solution - this is normal operation - my inverter does the same thing. When you start the vehicle
it draws a lot of current from the vehicle battery which causes a drop in battery voltage. Most inverters have a low voltage input safety and will fault the device.'

If the problem is turn on inverter then the red light starts flashing... I am thinking you
have the same problem as the one I replaced - it broke... I am sure some capicator
or other component in the circuit failed... My solution was to purchase a new one...

My vector power inverter needs to be reset


Inverters use high power transistors to create an A/C voltage from a D/C input. These transistors are the common point of failure when the units are not cooled properly or used beyond their rated capacity. (Actually, you should always buy an inverter that’s rating for continuous use is well below what your actual need is). What’s most likely happened is that these have shorted out and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, replacement parts alone will likely cost nearly what a new unit costs.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news; but you basically have a nice paperweight with some pretty lights and fans on it.

No power output from my vector 1000w inverter.


Sounds like a ground issue,Try this,Take the jumper cables and hook just the neg clamp tho the battery and the other end to the case of the inverter for a direct ground and see if that works..
