Question about Coleman Powermate 200 Watt Compact DC/AC Power Inverter # PMP
While using my Coleman 800 (1600 peak) watt DC power inverter today, it started smoking inside. I quickly disconnected it from the battery in the car & reconnected it a few minutes later. It still smoked with no AC output.
I need the repair manual for it ASAP so I can troubleshoot, diagnose & repair the problem.
Where can I find the schematic manual online for download? I had a site for free manual downloads but lost track of it. I think it was something etechnotes.com, I had to register and it saved my manuals to my free account. Ever hear of it or something like it?
Thanks, in advance.

If it has the Tecumseh engine..
Above 40°F Straight SAE 30W
Below 40°F down to -20°F Straight SAE 10W or SAE 5W30 or
Below 40°F down to -40° SAE 0W30 Synthetic
Using multigrade oils above 32°F will increase your oil consumption. SAE 10W40 is not recommended.
Per the manual, all the oils should be marked A.P.I. Service SL/SJ, but you may have to use something to a newer standard. E.G.: Service SM.
The oil sump capacity is 1-5/8 U.S. Pints or 0.76 Liters.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Low voltage output from inverter
Ignore peak, that means nothing. RMS * 1.414 = peak. RMS is the actual usage you will get, thats all. Peak doesnt mean it will supply the peak wattage for a short period of time: salesmen with no electrionics training tell people this and its a big fat lie.
See what the unit is drawing, use a clamp-on ammeter on ONE lead (not both, or it will read 0). That shoudl tell you if your device is drawing too much. You should only be able to run that device UNDER the 800 Watts (watts = volts * amps, not including loss of efficiency which might be 10% or more, and even greater when warm)
