Question about Xantrex Technology Heart Freedom 20 12 Inverter

1 Answer

Freedom 20 stops passing good AC input after about 15 sec.

Freedom 20 has good AC input from shore power but stops passing it through to outputs about 15 seconds after application - can repeat by removing and reapplying AC input. Is this perhaps the idle current sensing? If the inverter power switch is on, it does not start to invert once the output shuts down. All CB's and fuses good.

This unit does have an idle mode where it will not output without a load. What I am unsure of is if this exists only for invert mode or for both invert and pass through. Try reprogramming the remote to eliminate the idle feature and then see what happens.

The settings for welding aluminium using a Tig200P AC/DC inverter


If you are using a remote then you would set the machine in standard for controlling output and also to AC output, HF tig, contactor and control in remote position. I don't know if this helps or not but I pulled it from an owners manual.


1/16" (.062) - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 70, Hz 100, balance 20%, post-flow 6.0 sec.

For pulse settings - set pulse width 60%, peak current 100, background current 30, Hz 1.0

1/8" (.125) - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 150, Hz 80, balance 20%, post-flow 6.0 sec.

For pulse settings - set pulse width 60%, peak current 150, background current 50, Hz 1.0

3/16"-1/4" - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 185, Hz 60, balance 20%, post-flow 8.0 sec.

Precor error 15 input voltage


Precor Error 15, AC Input Voltage Too High Probable Cause 1. AC input voltage is incorrect.
2. AC input voltage transients. Transients can be caused by lightning strikes or by other pieces of equipment sharing the unit's AC power.
Corrective Action
  1. Verify AC feed into the building's circuit breaker is correct and connected to the proper transformer tap.
  2. Ensure the AC grounding for the unit's outlet is good and verify the unit is connected to an isolated and dedicated 20 amp circuit.
Precor Error Code 15

Appears to not be charging but does produce 110


Anytime external AC is being applied, the unit passes that AC input through to the output, independent of inverter/charger status. If external AC power is available but the unit is not charging (i.e. the Charge light is lit, but the batteries are not charging up as they should), then there is likely a problem with the AC sensing circuit card inside the unit, with a 1/4 amp fuse and/or the AC transformer the most probably culprits. Without external AC, the inverter will function all the way down to 10V, but then will shut off, so as long as your batteries have not been totally depleted,the unit will still be able to produce 110 AC after a brief charge cycle, but it won't for long.

Heart freedom 20. As soon as shore power is applied the inverter makes a growl sound, like a stuttering switch.


STOP!!! Immediately have the shore power breakers checked by assuring both output legs have EQUAL output. If not they can either burn out the inverter solid states components or the main coach A/C, Generator transfer switch. You can usually check this with a multimeter but the shore power park managers usually have maintenance personnel to check and replace bad pedestal breakers. Does this help?

Freedom 20 stopped working after ac breaker tripped


How do you get the PCB out all the 4 screws are out and clips are pushed off the pcb contacts on the sides. Unscrewed the antenna, but not the soldered in bulk antenna mount. I is still locked in somehow? how do I get the board out to look at the keypad buttons so I can see if threre is a bad contact?

I have an old Heart Freedom 20 charger/ inverter. It was in charge mode when lightening struck nearby and now doesn't do anything. Fuses???


Unlikely. Most likely it is dead. These are typically not very robust units and are riddled with issues without the help of lightning. If you can comfirm that there is voltage making it to the main input terminals and it is not doing anything, then it is time for a replacement or a rebuild. If you are on the East Coast, there is a great place where I send all of my Freedom units for repair. It is calle Tekris Power Electronics and they are in NJ. Good Luck

I have a Heart Interface Freedom 20 Inverter/Battery Charger installed on a powerboat. The fan (cooling fan?) is making noise - it seems to be rubbling inside the unit. Is there a way to repair? Replace...


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).

My tram 2512 is stuck in waiting for AC mode, ac is clearly reaching the unit, both by shore power and genset. What could the problem be?


If you are referring to a Trace 2412 inverter, which series is it? An SW or a DR series? In either case, if it won't accept generator power, but the AC input indicator is flashing, the problem is most likely the generator output power is off frequency or voltage. Trace inverters will only connect when the AC input is within certain limits. I'd suggest checking the frequency and voltage output of the generator. If it won't connect to shore power, check the voltage from that source. Make the voltage checks at the inverter input terminals.

Shore power won't connect.


The ground and neutral are bonded until a source power is sensed by the machine, then they separate.(pg 24 in your manual). The problem is that the GFI receptacle is faster then the xantrex. One solution is to run the 2 ground wires thru a HEAVY DUTY momentary push button that DISCONNECTS, before it ties into your ground bar on your boat. Hold the button down as you plug in to the dock, count to ten and let it go. The internal bonding will have had plenty of time to separate. If you find a better way.......   let me know too. Steve
