SOURCE: My Heart inverter is not charging the batteries.

it might be that it is not receiving power to charge it or the charging fuse or power input fuse is broken

SOURCE: heart 2500 w charger inverter only shows shut down

if it does not start, the inverter control or power transistors that do the switching may be bad

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

Terry this unit has 2 AC outputs so the reading that you got is correct. I am trying to surmise the actual problem that you have. You may have lost a system ground in the mobile home which would give you power as you stated but no power to the mobile home as the system ground has been lost.

Dumb questions time.

1. Battery voltage above 10 Volts?
2. Have you checked the DC Fuse?
3. Have you reset the breaker on the control panel?

Last test.. is to disconnect all outputs and try a voltage test again. A system distribution short will cause the inverter to go into the self protect mode.

Have you reset the breaker

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..

2004 Honda VTX 1800 not charging


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Battery Test:
The battery needs to be a fully charged and load tested to ensure proper readings, connections need to be clean and tight. If you are not working with a fully charged and functional battery, all other voltage tests will be incorrect. Standing battery Voltage should be 12.5-13.2 DCV.
2. Charging System Voltage Test:
Start motorcycle, measure DC volts across the battery terminals you should have a reading of approximately 13.2-15 DC Volts.
3. Connections and wires:
Inspect the regulator stator plug, and check the battery terminals for connection corrosion. If everything seems to be in order, move on to number 4 below to determine if there's a failed component.
4. Stator Checks/Rotor Check: Each of the following tests isolates the Stator & Rotor. If AC output and resistance test fail and stator test passes then the rotor is at fault (Pull Primary covers and inspect rotor for damage).
5. AC Output Check:
Unplug the regulator plug from the stator start motorcycle and change Voltmeter to AC volts. Probe both stator wires with your meter lead. The motorcycle should be putting out approximately 18-20 ACV per 1,000 rpm. Reading will vary depending on system, check service manual specification
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
32 amp system produces about 16-20 VAC per 1,000 rpm
45 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
Stator Resistance Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale. Probe each stator wires with meter leads and check resistance on the meter.
Resistance should be in the range of 0.1-0.5 Ohms. Reading will vary depending on the system, check the service manual for specifications.
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 0.2 to 0.4 ohms
32 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
45 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
5. Stator Ground Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale.
Probe each stator wire with your positive lead on the multimeter and the negative to ground.
There should be no continuity to ground on either wire.
If there is continuity your stator is shorted to ground and must be replaced.
6. Regulator Test:
Each of the following tests isolates the regulator only, so if any of these tests fail, the regulator is at fault.
Identifying Wires:
Battery Charge Lead- Wire going from the regulator to battery positive.
AC output leads- Wires coming from the Stator to the regulator.
Ground- Wire from Regulator to ground or regulator may be grounded via the physical bolting to chassis.
Regulator Ground Test: Ensure the regulator body is grounded or grounding wire is fastened tightly to a good ground (you should verify this by checking continuity from the regulator body to chassis ground).
Fwd/Reverse Bias Test/Diode Test:
This check is testing the Diode function to ensure it is regulating the AC current for the stator into DC Current.
Switch multimeter to Diode Scale.
Place your Multimeter positive lead on each AC output wire.
Place your multimeter negative lead on the battery Charge wire.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the AC output wires and the Positive lead on the Battery Charge Wire. The reading should be Infinite. With your meter on the same setting, place your multimeter positive lead on the regulator ground wire or to the regulator directly, and then place your meter negative lead on the AC output leads.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the regulator ground and the Positive lead on the AC output wires. The reading should be Infinite.
Note: Below is a table to show the readings:
Positive Lead Negative Lead Reading
AC output 1 Battery charge lead Voltage
AC output 2 Battery Charge Lead Voltage
Battery charge lead AC output 1 ?
Battery charge lead AC output 2 ?
Ground AC output 1 Voltage
Ground AC output 2 Voltage
AC output 1 Ground ?
AC output 2 Ground ?

I am installinga 4548 inverter. At 4500 watts, it puts out approximately 20 amp per phase. My generater that will feed the charging current for the batteries will put outapproximately 28 amps. Is the...


Let just wait a minute. You have an inverter that is rated at 4500 watts. This spooky. The inverter has a three phase input/three phase output? What is the inverter going to be used for?

Next question. What type of batteries are you using and what is the voltage/current in series or parallel? What will be the total voltage you will producing with the batteries? What is the total current of the batteries.

Another question? What is the voltage of the 28 amps? If it going to dump 28 amps across some batteries that rated at 12 volts and 1400 amp/hrs. For 12 volt batteries with a total of 1400 amps. What you will need approx 14 to 14 1/2 DC and with 28 amps across the batteries for charging these batteries. The batteries will be gone in about 1 hour. Boil all the water out of them. When a battery starts to boil it release water with hydrogen gas (the gas is very explosive and dangerous).

You also don't have a regulation circuit to limit the amount of current depending on the needs of the batteries. Also, you don't have a trickle charger to keep the batteries fully charge when the batteries are idle.

You will also need DC regulated charger that will keep the voltage 2-4 volts above you battery voltage. Without this voltage above the batteries voltage it will not charge those batters. Batteries need to forced to except a charge that why voltage above the source voltage. If you can check the voltage on your car/truck with a 12 volt system. While engine is running the voltage across the battery will be 13.8 to 14.1 volts. Now, the current limiter is the alternator it has a regulator built into it for stabiizing voltage and current went the batteries require more current but it limited by alternator regulator
Now, to get more current out of the alternator the regulator will supply dc voltage to the stator of the alternator generator more current. More dc voltage is supplied by the regulator but the dc voltages is limit to about 24 volts. Another limiting factor is the alternator copper windings diameter---larger diameter more current, small diameter less current. Utilities systems use big mega watts generators. The maxi um dc voltage for these three phase generator would like 500 to 800dc volts for peak to peak output. There is a simpler way of doing this.

You need to rethink everything here. Also, I can help you if you supply the needed information.
I truly wish you luck in your electrical endeavors. GB you. stewbison

Lost the wall charger of my Schumacher 400w power inverter (model PP-2200), where can I get another one?


Ah, I see, it seems what you have is a power pack. If so it would contain a gelcell battery, probably 12 volts. If this is true, then you may charge it with any 14-16 volt wall charger. You have to make sure you observe correct voltage and correct polarity when connecting up. Also you may have to obtain and change the plug on the charger wire.
I'm assuming the battery DC output is inverted to AC and you use it to power small AC appliances.
