SOURCE: i have samlex 600 watt

replace the inverter diodes, they are most likely burned out

SOURCE: I had my inverter stored and when I connected it

did you check the fuses there should be two one for AC one for DC ( depends on brand and quality) If not then I would suspect a breakdown of the power transistor.

SOURCE: In my question as to

this solution would likely work fine if you were only looking to have 110vac power. In order to have 220vac from two 110vac devices, you would need expensive equipment, and technical knowledge.

What you need to do in order to get 220vac is buy an inverter that will provide 220vac. There are many available.

Hope that helps.... Good Luck!

SOURCE: i need an inverter for

The most important spec that you will need is the LRA rating. What this stands for is locked rotor amps. The LRA rating is what the AC unit will draw from the inverter while the compressor starts up. This is a very important spec when sizing an inverter for use with an AC unit. After you get this spec you will multiply it by the voltage and this will be the startup wattage needed by the inverter.

For example if your LRA is 60.6 amps if you multiply this by 115 you will get roughly 7000 watts at start-up.

The next thing to take into consideration for a AC unit is battery bank size. Your next step in setting up a system for use with an AC unit is finding a sufficient recharge source for the batteries. You will want to have a minimum of a 150 amp alternator to recharge a system with a small AC. I do not know whether you will be able o accommodate them.
Why don't you go for solar power as standby OR a small generator????????

Dometic brisk 2 AC can it be operated on a 24 volt inverter.


If your inverter puts out enough power, sure. It may drain your batteries pretty fast, though. Check the power rating of your AC and compare it to the power output of the inverter. Add a safe margin for everything else you want to run at the same time.

WHAT IS A POWER INVERTER?


A power inverter is an electronic device that converts electricityfrom one form to another. Power inverters have become more popularrecently as the technology has become more efficient and much moreaffordable.

The most popular use for a power inverter isconverting battery electricity into mains electricity. For exampleconverting your car batteries' 12 volts DC into mains electricity 240Volt AC (Australia) or 110 Volt AC (USA).

WHAT POWER INVERTERS WILL HELP YOU DO
  1. Power inverters enablemains operated electrical equipment to be used even where there is nomains outlets, like in your car, caravan or even on your boat!
  2. Powerinverters bring creature comforts from home when you go camping orcaravaning allowing you to use your TV, fridge or electric shaver infact most of the normal mains powered conveniences from the home.
  3. You can charge your laptop in the car even if it doesn't happen tohave a 12 volt adapter. In fact a power inverter can be a very handygadget just to have in your car for those times you need to use a mainspowered appliance while you're away from a power socket.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A POWER INVERTER
Apartfrom looking for a good quality well priced product there are a coupleof important elements to consider when selecting your power inverter:

HOW MUCH POWER IS ENOUGH ?
Powerinverters come in a range of power capacities so selecting the rightone for you is very important. Your power inverter needs to be able toprovide sufficient power for the equipment you want to use it with.
Here is a brief check list:
  1. Check the power consumption for the device you want to power
  2. Allow an additional 20% free board
  3. Add the power for all the devices you want to run at the same time
Note also that devices with induction electric motors like an power saw mayrequire 3 to 7 times the operating power when they start.
Usingan under-powered power inverter may damage it or the appliance you aretrying to use, so be sure to check the specific wattage requirementsand operating instructions for appliances / tools to be used.

PURE SINE WAVE INVERTERS
Normal mains power is known as Alternating Current (AC) and is a sine wave shape like the black line in the drawing below
Pure sine wave (black) versus modified sine wave (red)
Atypical power inverter produces a 'modified sine wave output' like thered line in the drawing above. While this works for most appliances,light dimmers, variable speed drills, sewing machine speed controls,some laser printers etc. will not operate correctly with a modifiedsine wave power inverter.
Pure sine wave power inverters areespecially designed to provide a more accurate sine wave output and socan be used with these appliances, but unfortunately they are moreexpensive.
Check with your with appliance manufacturer or itsspecifications to confirm if you can use a conventional power inverteror will need a pure sine wave inverter.
WARRANTY
One of thegreat things about electronic equipment is there is no moving parts(although there is a fan in some models) so you can expect a longserviceable life from a power inverter.
STANDARDS
Powerinverters generate dangerous mains voltages so ensure the product youchoose is approved for use with your mains voltage and supplier.
Powerinverters can also generate electro-magnetic radiation that caninterfere with other electronic equipment such as radios transmittersetc. Check for compliance with relevant standards such as C-Tick etc

SAFETY
Powerinverters can generate potentially lethal voltages so the utmost ofcare should be exercised using them to avoid accidental electrocution.

SUMMARY
To select your power inverter carefully check the power requirements for the appliance(s) you intend to use it with.
  1. Start power - Allow up to seven times for an induction motor
  2. Operating power - Allow a 20% margin
  3. Pure or modified sine wave

Why is my pure sine wave keep blowing fuses?


please check if all attached connection are tight .Sometimes loose wire connection also causes fuse blow

Need owners manual


Without knowing make or model other than 600 Watts and pure sine output:
http://www.donrowe.com/user_guides/samlex/ssw_series.pdf
is for a series of pure sine inverters, yours should be similar enough to the 600 Watt version to be of practical use.

My husband hard wired an inverter for our RV to run the TV & associated equipment. It powers them fine but the reception has lines and dots running through it when on the inverter. We purchased a sine...


It is becaus the inverter erradiate EMI (Eletro Mechanical Interference) and the EMI is picked up by the TV antenna, try moving them a part as far away as you can from each other (the inverter and the TV antenna), there are also some filters you can pusches, but enven with all that stuff you could end up with EMI any way so don't spend to much,

Good luck!

Can this model be used on the grid? If not, is there a sunforce inverter that can be used on the grid?


If you meant for the mains supply then it must be connected in series to the load so that in absence of power the invertor takes over and when there is power the supply takes over as it charges the battery.
So have this wiring done with the connection routed from the fuse box or main board.

Red fault light comes on after about 10 mins and


Had a similar problem with the same inverter BUT to include a failing cooling fan.

NOTE:
Take it back and get your money back as soon as possible.

Replaced it with a pure sine inverter 1500 watt that is kicking **** 24 seven days a week on my solar / wind power system.

RECOMENDATIONS:

UPGRADE.

Hope this tip helps.

Run a CPAP on a power inverter


I would not do this, you really need a pure sine wave inverter to guarantee the safety of your CPAP machine. At the price they are selling this device it could not be pure sine wave. 150W pure sine wave would be $70-$100.
