SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: Low voltage output from inverter

I am thinking this a high impediance device problem and this is normal operation - the user manual of my inverter warns about use with high impediance devices - if not I am interested also...

SOURCE: honda eu 6500 gen overload indicator light will not shut off

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

Yamaha 2400IS Generator goes to overload when ie: 240 volt plugged in, or 700 watt angle grinder plugged in.


No idea but somebody else will probably come along with a better idea then mine, seems a lot of these generators have this thing installed on them (Has $25 hard start kit). Not sure what it does or how it works. Strangely enough you said you use it for 240 volt. Looked at the picture and didn't see a 240 volt connection.
If you are using the what look like the 120 volt circuits you can't over load the unit. Maximum current draw will cause it to go into protection mode and shut down the power load. The following is an exert from the owners manual which I got from Yamaha's site. Link at the end of this post.

Hope this helps

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light
1
comes on when an over-
load of a connected electrical device is detected, the
inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage
rises. The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping
power generation in order to protect the generator and
any connected electric devices. The AC pilot light
(green) will go off and the overload indicator light (red)
will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are found,
remove.
4. After checking, restart the engine.

I have a generator that can run 800 watts. I


Check with an electrician. The 800 watts could be peak power, not constant running, in which case you'd be very close to overload.

I bounced the "H" out of my generator. When i plug something in it goes straight into overload and quits.


You may have knocked something loose inside. Take off the generator end cover and look for anything obvious. There is nothing to loose at this point.

I have a 700 watt power inverter. what appliances can be used for that amount of watts.


Please understand that an inverter should only be used for temporary use, not like a generator. 700 watts is about the upper limit that most cars or light truck alternators can take.

Before adding loads to the inverter, check the wattage rating of each device you plan to connect. You should not exceed 80% of the inverter's capacity, or 560 watts continuously (.8 x 700).

Some inverters output a pure sine wave, meaning they are suitable for things like computers or other more sensitive electronics. If the inverter outputs a square wave, you should be careful not to connect devices that could be harmed.

If you look on the inverter, there should be a model number and make. It's best to refer to the owner's manual before you use the inverter. If you don't have a book, you should be able to find one on-line if you search by make and model. There may also be a phone number you can call for technical support or to obtain a manual.
