The charge fuse may have broken or the charger is bad

    Although Xantrex says there are no user serviceable parts inside, there is a slow blow 1/4 amp fuse in the AC sensing circuitry which, if it blows, will cause the charger function to be inoperative. The fuse can be replaced, but you still have to find out what caused it to blow, i.e. another component failure. The most likely culprit is the small 2"x2" transformer on the AC circuit card, which should read ~ 130 ohms across its windings. If it reads significantly less and/or there is evidence of burning or charring on the transformer itself, that is likely your problem. However, even if you can use a soldering iron, since Xantrex only provides parts to their service network, you may be hard pressed to find a replacement, and would need to take the unit to a servicer anyway. Not cheap, but probably less expensive than a new unit.

Good day, Have a Heart Interface 2000w model 81-0234-12 charger/inverter When connected to 12 v battery I get 275 v ac out from the inverter. Why not 220v ?

How are you measuring the output? The inverter makes alternating current and it can be measured wrong. Also it might be high if a regulator is bad and also if there is no load on the output..

How do you verify that the unit is charging the batteries? Freedom 20 Inverter charger

The really only way one can tell if batteries are being charged is assure them are topped off then trickle charge them with external charger overnight and then check the voltage is 13-14.5 VDC. If not check that battery life is not expired and exchange them if it is. ALSO... one can always extend the life of batteries (deep-cycle) by charging them with a large professional automotive unit in the high power START position over night. WARNING: Assure the caps are loose as you "boil away" the plate corrosion over night due to the very explosive H2 gas generated. No smoking!!

Rv2012 Inverts but dosnt charge

I have the same problem with my Freedom Marine 25. Assuming it worked previously and you have checked all the obvious things (generator/shore power breaker contacts, etc.), the Xantrex tech says it is likely a small 1/4 amp slow blow fuse on the AC sensing card inside the box, but that the AC transformer may have shorted to cause the fuse to blow. The internal arrangement may be different but remove the cover screws and locate the 2"x2" transformer on the AC sensing card for signs of arcing or charring. If you have a meter, check the transformer coils and if it reads significantly less than ~ 130 ohms, that is likely your problem, which will require taking the unit to an Xantrex authorized service center, since Xantrex does not provide parts or schematics to the general public.

if the charger will not charge the batteries, it means the charger is bad or the fuse for the charger is broken
