Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical

New Xantrex 2000 watt inverter/charger installed by rv dealer on 2013 toy hauler. Have 4 solar panels and 4 6volt batteries. I was using a 300 watt slow cooker when the inverter started smelling like burning electrical wire. I thought the rv was going to burn down. The inverter never got hot. the fan was working. the smell over took the inside of the rv. it has a toxic smell. This is first time out. looking for the cause of the odor. Think it has something to do with the charging part of the inverter but not sure where to start. The dealer is 1200 miles away and nearest mfg service dept is about 700+ miles away.

I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

Sounds like the link between the inverter and the remote is bad. Chaffed wire, broken wire, etc may be the culprit.

You should still have the shorting jumper that came with the Freedom. Put the jumper into the AUX port, and you should now have local control of the inverter. If so, then replace the wiring between inverter and remote.

Xantrex Inverter/Charger has no AC output


HI

Checking AC Output
1. After the battery voltage and connections have been checked, disconnect the inverter.s AC output wires from
the power distribution system and connect a light to the AC output of the inverter/charger.
2. Disconnect the remote panel to eliminate it as a possible problem.
3. Turn the inverter ON using the power switch on the front panel of the inverter. The 100-watt light should
illuminate. Measure the voltage at the AC output wires using the multimeter. The reading should be 114.126
VAC or approximately 230 VAC if the unit is an international model. If the light does not illuminate, there is
a problem with the inverter. Contact Xantrex technical support.

Go to the auto parts store and buy a "Battery Tender" solar powered, or get an electric trickle charger. Or install a battery disconnect for the period the unit is not in use; you can disconnect the battery.

Xantrex Freedom 458 Combi inverter/charger 2000 watt


OK my 2000 Discovery does the same thing. Try and hit the inverter charger with your fist 3-4 times, then listen and see if the charger fan starts up. I will be bringing my inverter to Portland this week to have the tech look at it. The other thing is it could be the transfer switch. Will let you know.
