Question about Coleman Cable Power Inverter PMP1200
Hello i have a durite 1000w inverter and it will charge a 30w torch no problem but when i put on a higher load like a 500w halogen work light it just squeals and the light goes from dim to bright constantly i.e the power seems to be there then no power etc etc.
Have looked inside but cant see anothing wrong....any ideas of the components i need to change or test.
An incandescent lamp that is cold takes approximately 10 times the running current initially. The inverter MAY not be able to start the 500 watt lamp if its protection circuits sense the very low starting resistance of the lamp.
Test the inverter on some other device first.
