Overload light on Aims 5000w inverter

Inverot has been working fine for weeks until now.
Turned the inverter on and a few seconds later the overload light comes on. I unplugged all devices and the oveload light still comes on !
I even left the unit off for an hour hoping it would reset itself but to no avail.
Any ideas ?

    I disconected all cables from the inverter including the battery cables, switched unit on to release stored charge as suggested. A few minutes later I switched inverter off and reconected just the battery cables, switch unit on....after 2 seconds of showing normal battery voltage on the display it goes straight in to overload !
    Something I didn't add on my first post that may be relevant is I switched my transfer switch on and off a few times in succession between reading/testing my voltages. The transfer switch is installed correctly and also has been working fine, but could I have somehow overloaded the inverter by doing this ?

Try to disconnect all cables from front and back, then turn the unit on and let all the stored charge drain and reconnect and test...make sure the unit grounded

    I did not know about the new information...the invertger has an auto reset and usually it reset without any help and if not the dischaarge of the inside charge help it to reset if that did not work that mean the load was too greater than the unit that may melted the board...see how old is the unit and see if it still under service if not contact me at alenorm@yahoo.com to pass you to the lowest dealer for them...good luck

Hi,
There is two chance for theis problem. 1) there is missing voltage to the back light inverter boadr or 2) the back light inverer is faulty. Check the power supply volatge to the back light inverter board. Normally its 24v for all lcd back light inverters. If the power supply is ok then you have to replace the back light inverter board.

You can check is there is any picture on the lcd screen by the help of a tourch . light the tourch near to the lcd screen and wach the screen from different angel while the PC is in ON position.. in some angle you can see the shadow of picture if every thing else working fine except back light.

If so there is powersupply missing or back light iverter is faulty. You have to replace the back light inverter board with a new on because there is no repair possible with the board. Also the spares will very difficut to get.

I had a monitor and xbox 360 power supply plugged into the inverter. It has been working for at least 2-3 months now just fine. Then all of a sudden, it turned off. I unplugged it and thought maybe it...


  • First thing I should ask is have you tried to plug something else into the inverter to see if it is the inverter or a surge messed up your monitor and X-Box?
  • When you say turned off do you get a solid red light when the inverter is on and you are trying to get your X-Box and monitor to work? A solid red light means voltage overload.
  • A blinking red light means you are having a current overload.
  • If the internal alarm on the inverter goes off and shuts down with a red light this means you are having a voltage shortage.
  • If the red light starts to blink this is a temperature overload.
  • Keep in mind that this inverter will start automatically back up as soon as what ever issue it is detecting is resolved. There is no fuse to check inside.

  • If your inverter shuts down from thermal overload then wait 15 full minutes before trying to turn it on again.
  • If you don't have any blown fuses and no burned wires make sure that if you are using over 150 watts and hour you go right to the battery rather than a cigarette light adapter as the stress can burn them wires connecting to the cigarette lighter up.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Aims Inverter PWRINV5000W with all the lights on but no output at plugs.


Hi!!
There is a fuse or thermal device for the AC outlet(s) protection, is either next to the outlet or same place but inside the unit. The cover need to be removed to change/reset it.
Let me know if you found it. Good Luck!!

When it's started the engine revs hard as if it's powering something whilst nothing is connected. after a few seconds the overload light comes on & the engine settles down but the overload light stays...


in checking my manuals their is a rectifier that controls the 12 volt side this can be bad even though it is for the 12 volts some times the gen needs a back pulse witch acts like a exciter that kick the power in you can replace this part i do not have the part number i'm sorry but you can get them from electronics stores the part will be black 1x1x3/8 inch with a mounting hole in the center with 4 wire studs replace and try this first if the issue is not solved then the inverter unis is bad unfortunately this is a solid state sealed unit encased in a hard gel that hole unit will need to be replaced in order to cure your issue i hope this helps

I plugit in and turn the inverter box on, one


The problem you are experiencing is as
a result of an overload.Your inverter is
200watts and i believe your freezer has
a higher power than it, i.e.it is above
200watts. When ever there is an
overload on an inverter it distroys the
power transistors that make the
inverter work.You will need to see a
local repairs person.
