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.

I have a vector 750 watt inverter (vec1047bd). The charge controller in my photovoltaic system went bad and I had it repaired. When I got the controller back, my inverter did not work. The inverter has a...

If you have a manual for the inverter check and see ifDin there are diagnostic codes with the LEDs.

I looked through this and your description of the problem was not listed in the document, but you may be able to contact the manufacturer and get more information. Basically this is a DC to AC power conversion device, which takes the 12v DC input and converts it to 115V AC
and in does so at a maximum peak power of 750 watts at 115V AC. since your charge controller went bad, it is possible in the process it overloaded this device or the battery system put out too low of a voltage when the charge controller died and low voltage input is not something this unit was able to tolerate. Check your remaining components to be sure they are good, then look at the inverter's board and transformer to see if anything was damaged. I would want to verify the charge controller was good and the batteries in good condition - and perhaps consider replacing this inverter with one more suited to your actual load wattage requirements.

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.

Bought a new vector maxxsst 1200 watt inverter

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.

Burnt out

internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally.
it just broke
no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.

maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis
