Question about Boating

Open Question

My 1998 Freedom 25 Inverter/Charger suddenly stopped inverting. It has been working fine for many years. I replaced the large Potter and Brumfield Relays about six months ago which was the cause of di

Removed cover to identify if the relay coils were working, yes. On power input the "pass through" relay clicks in and it passes 220v to the board. On selecting charge, the lower relay clicks in and the charge happens as normal. I have measured on the two large bolts that connect the heat sink mounted transistors to the large transformer and get 3v AC It is possible that the generator put out up to 270 volts in a peak pulse, as I recently changed the generator controller board, and had to do the voltage stability adjustment, and while doing this there were fluctuations. I really need a schematic to try to sort this out.

Sounds like the link between the inverter and the remote is bad. Chaffed wire, broken wire, etc may be the culprit.

You should still have the shorting jumper that came with the Freedom. Put the jumper into the AUX port, and you should now have local control of the inverter. If so, then replace the wiring between inverter and remote.

I need a replacement comm board for a Xantrex Freedom Marine 25-12 Inverter/Charger. The battery temp sensor got shorted out and probably caused damage to the installed comm board.


I have the same unit that the charging function just died on. If I can't fix it and have to buy a new one, you can have my comm board for free. Should know my status in ~ a week .

Fis\rst of all is the inverter supplying 120 VAC? when turned on?. If so the inverter seems to be working.I think your problem is in the truck alternator/charging system. The inverter is independent of this charger..

The fan can be replaced. It is very similar to some of the PC cooling fans. I've got the same problem (again) and will be replacing it soon. I will give you the fan specs once I remove my fan ( I think it is 4" 120VAC - will let you know when I repair mine).

Xantrex Freedom 458 Combi inverter/charger 2000 watt


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.
