SOURCE: aims 5000 watt inverter troubleshooting

The amp meter on this unit measures the battery current. So if you have an 8 amp load at 120 vac you will draw more than 80 amps at 12 volts and 40 amps at 24 volts. While this may not explain the 180 amps that you are seeing -- it's possible that the dryer is drawing more than 8 amps.

SOURCE: 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.

These inverters are notorious for this. Like the previous posting, it is probably a bad capacitor or other component. Try to keep them unplugged when you start the vehicle. The power outlet gets a jolt of DC voltage on startup. I recently bought the one below and it has been working great for quite sometime: http://batteryinternational.com/400-watt-power-inverter.html

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.

SOURCE: I just bought a power inverter for use with my pc.

There are two possibilites: the first is the over 400W power draw, the other is how you have the inverter connected. Do you have the inverter connected directly to the battery terminals (the clips) not the outlet plug (cigaretter lighter)? This is needed for any load over 80W and under 400W. (the inverter can handle a load demand over the 400W limit but only for short periods (800W).)

What is the load that your PC pulls (Is it a laptop or a desktop)? The laptop in my home has either a 65W or a 90W load (depending on the battery and the AC adapter we are using). Desktops take much more power (usually).

I hope this helps.

COLEMAN INVERTER PMP1200 JUST BEEPS WHEN TURNED ON


It is most likely the low voltage alarm. Suggest connecting when the car is running with no load (110 volts not connected). If the alarm continues turn the unit off and on to reset.

Hope this helps?

Inverter Protection Features
• Short Circuit Protection. The inverter will automatically shut down until short is removed.
• Low Voltage Alarm. An alarm will sound when the voltage from the battery discharges to 10.5 +/- 0.5 volts DC. This is an indication that the battery needs to be recharged.
• Over Voltage Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the input exceeds 16.5 +/- 1 volt DC.
• Under Voltage Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the input is less than 10.0 +/- 0.5 volts DC.
• Overload Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the continuous draw of the equipment being operated exceeds 1200 watts or the surge draw of the equipment exceeds 2400 watts.
• Thermal Protection. The RED LED Indicator Light will illuminate and the inverter will automatically turn itself off when the circuit temperature exceeds 150° F

What weight oil do I use for a 5000 watt Coleman generator


Depends on the temperature where yuo will operate it, but a good multi-viscosity oil like 10W-30 should work. 5W-30 for cold climates.

I have a coleman powermate pmp400-t inverter 400w/800w will it power a sump pump? I tried it and it beeped and the fault light came on


Hello, the answer is no. This inverter will work with a pump that below or about 400 watts power for operation. I notice it says that the inverter 400w/800w. The 800 watts is the surge required to get an electric motor to run. On a single phase motor (120 AC) and it take 4 amperes to operator this motor. But to start the it will 12 amperes to start it. This is one reason why on a lot of electrical motors there will be a big tube or can, this is the starting capacitor, it stores energy in form of current (amperes) to drop across the windings of the motor when it starts. If some electric motors didn't have this capacitor. The most likely scenario would be tripping a breaker because it drawing to much current.


Now, for you problem. Example of Power and the unit of the formula is V (volt), R (resistance) I (current) P (power) Ohm's states that :

f9ae53a99f2b2b6a74146fb04fb3ff73.png


Now Power would be stated: P = V times(x) I. Therefore in your case, if the pump at normal operation is drawing 4 amps of current for operation pumping water. The power factor would be 120 V AC (house voltage) times (X) I (current) which 4 amps. So here is what you have: P = 120 X 4 equal= 480 watts.

Therefore, your inverter will not work because it operating at 80 watts more than the power inverter can deliver which is 400 Watts.



If you need to purchase a new power inverter, remember always take into account the Amperes required for operation. Just by the simple Ohm's Formula. Best of Luck. GB....stewbison

If you are only tring to run a TV off this inverter, it appears you may have a defective unit. If you have had this inverter for only a short time, contact the dealer/store where you bought it and seek their advice. If you have had it for 90 days or more you can still contact the dealer, but maybe it would be best to contact the coleman company. You can go to their website nad find out how to contact the division that deals with this particular type of product.

My inverter is in alarm and won't produce 110 power. Checked input voltage and it is correct.


I have had this happen a few times.

Sadly replacement is the Best option.
Repairs can be %75 the cost of a new one.

The best invert we have been using is a Pure Sine 1500 watt inverter.

Sad news but hope this tip helps.

2nd season with 400 watt vehicle 1024 inverter. The


Restating the question - 400 watt inverter is turned on and running with the vehicle turned off.
After starting vehicle the red light of the inverter is on with no power output from the inverter.
If you turn the inverter off then on inverter operates normally.

Solution - this is normal operation - my inverter does the same thing. When you start the vehicle
it draws a lot of current from the vehicle battery which causes a drop in battery voltage. Most inverters have a low voltage input safety and will fault the device.'

If the problem is turn on inverter then the red light starts flashing... I am thinking you
have the same problem as the one I replaced - it broke... I am sure some capicator
or other component in the circuit failed... My solution was to purchase a new one...
