Question about Xantrex Technology Heart Freedom 20 12 Inverter

Open Question

I have a hart freedom 20 inv/charger. In the invert mode, the AC drops to about 60 volts at about 3sec intervals. This is with load or no load.

I have been working with xantrex tec support. They suggested a authorized repair. The inverter checks out on the test bench. I suspect a problem in the interface.

OK my 2000 Discovery does the same thing. Try and hit the inverter charger with your fist 3-4 times, then listen and see if the charger fan starts up. I will be bringing my inverter to Portland this week to have the tech look at it. The other thing is it could be the transfer switch. Will let you know.

Upgrade to one of the Freedom remotes, the 458 has different software, and features than the old Freedom 1500.

SOURCE: Is there a bench test for the Xantrex freedom 458

My experience has been thay there is no real "bench test" available to the general public. You can do some testing if you are familiar with how to read the color codes on resistors, and know how to test relays. There are two fuses inside, so you can check their continuity. Before going to this trouble though, get on line and download the Xantrex trouble shooting guide, bulletin No. 512-0084001-01 rev1. If that is ok, it'll be a trip to the dealer, where you'll learn that it costs about $400 to replace the board. I'm on my second one, in two years, so they aren't a long life article I'm afraid.Hope this is helpful for you.

I have a heart freedom20 inv. batt. chger that runs at 120 hertz .It does everything (charges switches etc.just fine bu the ac output is at 120 hertz instead of 60.


First check the voltage, if the voltage is good then check the hertz with a different meter because if the hertz went up to 120 everything onboard should have burnt out. The hertz works on the low voltage side of 120vac. before going to a repair shop first check the hertz meter. Good luck.

My freedom 20 charger/inverter does not seem to drop down to a float charge and continues to charge batteries at a rate which makes it necessary to add water continually to my house batteries which consist...


The charger has four distinct charging stages - 1) Bulk, 2) Acceptance, 3) Float, and 4) Equalization. If your batteries are old and therefore won't reach full charge, the charger may not be able to get them up to the voltage where float charging kicks in. If you ever allowed the water in the batteries to get down to where the plates were exposed, one or more of your batteries may be contaminated with excessive sulfate buildup on the plates. The equalization process (Stage 4,which must be entered manually) will help to return any excessive sulfate builup back into solution, so you might try that and see if the performance improves.

Wiring Freedom 20 inverter


make sure your new inverter is made for 220 volt supply as that is what the red wire represents. its the other leg of a 220 circuit and should not be connected to your new inverter until you read the manual to see if it is designed for this and if so how to wire it in. it could cause you are the unit serious harm if you connect a 110 inverter to a 220 circuit. consult an rv repair shop or a good electrition if you cant find the needed info. it may actually be printed on the side of the inverter as well.

Heart Freedom 20 will not default to generator power.


First of all it is possible that the is no power going into the inverter,trace the input source to see if the connection from the generator is ok. check the fuse if it is broken if not, the contactor or switching relay in the inverter is bad

Freedom 20 stops passing good AC input after about 15 sec.


This unit does have an idle mode where it will not output without a load. What I am unsure of is if this exists only for invert mode or for both invert and pass through. Try reprogramming the remote to eliminate the idle feature and then see what happens.
