Question about Xantrex Technology Heart Freedom 20 12 Inverter

Open Question

No inverting for appliances or?

Since buying, used, my Monaco Knight 2002, the inverter has never worked in regards to getting 110 use while parked without exterior source. Green invert flashes like the book says I can turn off and on charge like the book says and select battery type(wet) but cannot get invert to power interior lights/ any plugs or microwave, tv etc. And the remote panel (tested in another RV and showed good) does not light up. It once did, but when the invert button was pushed, nada Then suddenly it stopped lighting up ??????

Second Freedom 25 inverter/charger...first one repaired, this one went to fault...started microwave on fire, fried the satillite receiver and possibly other components....installing a Mangnum....."do not let anyone rebuild the Freedom 25" First time about $900.00 to rebuild...this time about $9000.00 with components it fried. Fleetwood LLC Corporate knows of problems and only offer to sell you the conversion kit for about $4200.00....bankruptcy sanctifies previous problems "they" left with us.

Power is on, but appliances connected to the inverter are not working.

power surge or not enough power to the inverter for the items you are running,remember,compressors and heating elements and motors use 3 times as much as ratings to use or start,if you have those hooked up,then the inverter is burned out

Hi. I plugged a 600w oven grill and a kettle which is 110w into a 1000w Ring power 1024 inverter 24v-240. And now it dont seem to work. The inverter is wired straight to the battery.

Does it work if you plug in just your smallest appliance 110W?. How about just your 600W appliance What size wire are you using to supply power to the inverter? The inverter will draw about 30 amps from the battery with your load. You need to use wires as large as a number 8 from the battery to the inverter. The length should be as short as possible but could be 20 ft away. My inverter is a 2000 Watt continous and I use welding cable size 0 at about 3ft max between the battery and the inverter.

175 watt 350 peak inverter 12v dc to 110 ac need a fuse but don't know what size to use. old fuse is missing.

15/16 amp would be recommended.
You could to try a 20 amp, but you will risk overheating and the possible failure of the vehicle circuit fuse.

In my question as to using two inverters of 110 volts each, they are not to be run in series but parallel. One inverter would tie into one side of the electrical panel and the other would tie into the...

this solution would likely work fine if you were only looking to have 110vac power. In order to have 220vac from two 110vac devices, you would need expensive equipment, and technical knowledge.

What you need to do in order to get 220vac is buy an inverter that will provide 220vac. There are many available.

Hope that helps.... Good Luck!

My heart inverter makes 140 votes, is there a way to adjust it.?

You may want to check your voltmeter against domestic current. It may be reading high. Failing that, the manufacturer should help you. If the spec on the machine is 110 - 120, then 140 is too far out of spec. They should calibrate to this. Is the machine on warranty?

If not, depending on how you're using it, you can install a dimmer switch between it and the item you're powering with it - just a regular lamp dimmer switch you can get at the hardware store. Leads from the inverter go to the input wiring terminals on the dimmer, and your voltmeter goes onto the output; just dial the dimmer back until your vm reads 110 or 120 - whatever you need - and then connect to your appliance. You'll likely be better off with the rotary kind than the switch kind.

Hi, i've got a skytronic 300w soft start inverter making loud beep and then cutting out. I know its one of the safety cut outs but not which one. can it be repaired ? thanks

If your appliance draws over 300W or if your 12 v battery charge is low you will get a loud beep warning. Do you get the same beep with a low current appliance like a lamp? Make sure your battery has a good charge.

Some appliances have huge draw at start up even though they are rated under 300w your inverter may not be able to start.

Also some electric motors don't like modified sign wave inverters.
What are you trying to run and what is its rated watts?

I had my inverter beep when I had it connected via a cigarette lighter plug but when I used a connection straight to the battery it worked fine.
I was running a 500w grinder on a 1000w el cheepo inverter.

Using a 12 to 110 inverter to power it

Check that the power adapter for your laptop supports 110V.
Measure the output power with a multimeter. If its below 110VAC (Alternating Current) your not getting enough power.

Does your computer work when its is not plugged in the Inverter?

12C Power Supply

Power inverters are plentiful on eBay in the range of $25-$100 US and any within that range would satisfactorily supply 110-120 VAC for your set. These items are also available at auto & RV parts outlets.

Check the rated power consumption on the set itself or in the user guide but I doubt that it will need more than 150 watts at 120 VAC.  If the consumption is not given in watts but instead amperes, multiply that number by 120 (for the liine voltage) and the result will be in watts. Any higher wattage that you buy will give you the possibility of using it for things other than your TV.

All later consumer items such as your set are able to deal with the quasi-sine wave output of this kind of primitive inverter.
Power inverters    
Not all items can use this kind of AC; any power tool or kitchen appliance with brushes for the motor will accept this kind of voltage, as well as resistance type of appliances like hair dryers, curlers, etc. If you are in doubt about something you might like to attach to an inverter, listen closely to the device and if it doesn't sound like it did at home, don't use it.  Also if it starts to emit an odor or heats excessively, stop using it.
