Try shutting down the load completely, then power up the inverter with no connected load. Then bring a little on at a time and see what happens.

Having issues with my laptops when the AIMS 600W Pure Sine Inverter turned on. As soon as I exit the cab of the vehicle with the laptop the issues resolve themselves.

You will need to either mount the inverter further from where you are using the laptop or shield it enough to get the laptop out of the "arc" of the power generation.

Now the problem: The inverter does produce heat so you can't mount it in an unvented box.

You are dealing with the same problem as the high tension power lines, that has a radiation zone, and you either need to cut back the zone or move it further away.

If it the inverter was modified in any way, then they might not have gotten all the shields back correctly.

I have a Westinghouse LTV-32w1. The inverter is lighting the backlights for only a split second. Screen is still visible under an external light. The board is getting and holding it's 24 volts from the...

16 transistors did not go bad at the same time, of course. The inverter's driver IC has an overload sense circuit which causes the inverter to turn off.

There are too many possible reasons why an overload can happen and half of them do not involve shorted components.

Your easiest solution would be to replace the inverter. Unless you want to get into the repair business it might as well be the cheapest one.

Hope this helps.

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.
