The inverter that converts the 12 volts to 120VAC is not working. An eletronic repair shop can fix this. refrigertor technician will replace the whole inverter, Or you can order the inverter unit and replace it yourself if you are somewhat a handy kind of person. It is not really that hard to replace them. Make sure first that the inverter is not putting out 120VAC when you connect 12V to it, before you take it to a shop.

What switch position should I have for 12v & 240v in a millard 2002 van


The 12v & 240v switch is to change voltage supplied to the camper. You use the 12v if you are running things from the battery; you use the 240 when you're connected to what the US calls "shore power" or "land power"

Do you have power at the outlets? If you do but the lights keep going dim then your converter is going bad or has already failed. Your lights are 12v and the outlets are 100v. If you do not have power at the outlets then you need to check the transfer switch that toggles between generator power and shore power.

You might unhook the battery and with the camper plugged in to shore power the 12v lights should work. If not check the breaker that goes to the inverter. If that is not tripped then check the power output at the converter. I would expect the inverter is shot. I replaced the one on my Jaco two years ago with (Progressive Dynamics 60 Amp Power Converter with Charge Wizard and the remote pendant)

Generator stops after 30 hours of use


You didn't indicate the age of the unit, hence the oil consumption which can be under heavy hot laod, I believe they are two different issues. With the motor home sat not on shore power, and the gen off measure the battery voltage at the generator battery wire, it may read around 12V start the generator and re-measure it should jump to around 13.8V if it does then the gen battery charger system is intact, which then you need to check vehicle battery converter is working. If you don't have 13.8V then the cause is most likely a stator battery winding, or rectifier.

I have a Xantrex 3000 Watt inverter on my boat, largely to run my 120-volt fridge. The installer told me to never, ever have my shore power hooked up, and especially not to turn on the AC circuitbreaker...


Most likely reason for 'ticking' sound is one or more FET(field effect transistor) have shorted . Any electronics shop can fix ,but, repair may approach cost of replacing . The parts themselves are not expensive but labour may be high .
Consider getting an inverter designed for solar installs with proper automatic 'shore power' switching and never worry again .

Prosine 2.5 fault 195


This internal fault code can mean so many things, but basically it more than likely has some internal parts that the smoke is no longer inside. They can be repaired however, email sunyout@gmail.com to discuss further.

Fridge not working on 12V or 220V


hi simon, i would say your ac heater is gone bad. it could have open up and no longer heating when you have a power surge . these heating elemenent are also located in the gas generator. you have to replace this heating element.
