Question about Vector VEC056 MAXX Power Inverter

Vector vec 051D 3000 watt fan won't run anymore, unit overheats

I attempted to run a small 750 watt heater for 15 minutes and the inverter overheats. The fan has not worked since about 6 months after I purchased it. I have only used it to run a small refidgerator that is on constantly but only requires power less than half the time. I also run a 1000 watt microwave for 10 minutes at a time and the inverter doesn't overheat.

Your inverter needs to cool at all times , if the fan does not work,try buying a small standing fan to blow cool air to you machine, it is possible that your heater is making the inverter to over heat please avoid using the heater on the inverter

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.

I have a vector VEC051C 3000 Watt inverter, the vent fans run continously without load, can it be modified to cool only when, the temperature increases..


If it has a 12 volt fan, you can replace it with one designed for computers that has a built-in thermistor. These fans will automatically increase or decrease their RPM depending on the ambient temperature. I have seen them in 70,80,120mm sizes. As long as the inverter is on, you do not want the fan to ever be completely off because even without load some heat is generated and can build up inside if no ventilation is present. Although the fan will never completely turn off, this might be the easiest solution if your goal is to make the inverter quieter (and use less energy) when not in use.

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

A ups mosfet ckt one mosfet burnt out og 16 can i replace only one


Usually the mating one has been degraded or damaged as well. Replace as a pair, or all of them that are in the same function.

OFTEN driver transistors and drive diodes are also damaged. Carefully check all associated components to avoid burning out freshly replaced ones.

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.

I need to find replacement ground (thumb screw) for vector 024


ground it off on the case...any grounding method should work. Unless you are talking about the main connection terminals... then just replace the missing thumb screw with a short screw and an eyelette type connecter.

Does item have a fuse? Burned out


i have the same one ...and i'm not seeing a fuse, there may be one internally
does the inverter have strong "burnt wire" smell if so it is probably fried.
