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.

Have a Porter Cable 175 PSI, 25 gallon upright compressor. When you flip the switch, the motor buzzes, but does not start the compressor. The cylinders are free when hand turning. After a couple of...

On these larger compressors, the motor that turns the compressor,

will have one or two capacitors, the capacitor in conjunction with the

motor gives the compressor that extra push or torque that is required

to get it going. if the capacitor goes out, the compressor will not work,

the motor may work but will not have the strength to turn over the compressor..

depending on the size motor, it may be mounted on top, on the side or

even in a juntion box attached to the compressor, if you have to replace one

i recommend powering down or unplugging compressor and handle the

capacitor carefully, use insulated tools or gloves, a capacitor is like a battery

it will hold a charge, but like a battery it can be discharged, the only difference

with a battery and a capacitor, on a capacitor you can have thousands of volts.

it can be replaced just handle it safely, good luck!

I need to know the circuit breaker fuse size for a flavel milano ML6CDS electric cooker and the cable rating

If your power suply is 240V and the power rating of the ovenis 9.9kw then the expected current consumption is 9900w/240v = 41.25A. Therefore this needs a 8mmsq cable or if not available in your area then use 10mmsq cable. And for the fuse or circuit breaker use 50A

i would not go with less than a 4 gauge cable for the + and - . atleast run a 50 amp as if you were running a big stereo system. but, you might want to consider a circuit breaker.

Fuses and Breakers
Attach the red or positive wire to a 5 amp circuit breaker. If the unit is connected directly to the boat’s battery, include a 2 amp in-line fuse. (In-line fuses are available at most marine supply stores.) The power cable includes a smaller "shield" wire. Connect this to a good ground.

Extending the Power Cable
If you need to extend the power wiring by more than 10 feet, use a larger wire size. This will allow the wires to deliver the correct voltage in spite of the longer wire distance. For runs of 20 to 35 feet, use #14 AWG cable. If you extend the power wiring, be sure all electrical connections are solid and durable. Soldering is the best way to make these connections. Insulate all connections using heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape. You may also use crimp connectors or a terminal strip, but be sure to use good-quality marine-grade parts.
