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

With the vector 2000 watt converter do you need to run 2 batterys.


well unless you bought the 24 volt unit no one battery will run the unit, according to black and decker this unit is not being made, did you buy it new or at a yard sale?
one way to tell is look on bottom of unit, it will tell you if it is 24 or 12 volt model.

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

I need to install my inverter 18 feet from my battery


a very thick one,,,like a baby battery lead on your car,,,its a very bad idear to have it so far away from the battery point, you would be far better off finding a closer place to put it as the volts drop off would have a big drop in out put on the inverter,,,also thats one big mother of a fridge to use 3000 watts????
you need a small power station to run it,,and if it do use 3000 watts your inverter is far to small to do the job, read the out put plate on the inverter,,it says 3000 watts max? not all the time,,,,thats about 2000 watts realy running contently and the whire to feed the inverter will need to carry about 30 amps so your car battery is say 90 amp hours plus the volts drop off, you would be lucky to have the inverter running for 3-4 hours before your battery go's is very flat on you!

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.

Two things...one the fan only workk when the unit get hot or you created short the inversters are very sinsative and if you make mistake you are dead...see try it for ferw min and see...but first try to reset the unit and that by disconnecting the negative and positive from the back and turn the unit on to get all charges in the unit out then reconnect the cables do not forget to ground the unit to avoid sparks.

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.
