I have the same problem. I have AC from the windings but nothing leaving the inverter module..Its a sealed unit. There is virtually no parts back up service & if you can track down parts, they are quoting from $ 400 to $ 700 for replacement..If you expect this gen set to last like a honda or yamaha your mistaken..Dont buy chinese unless your short of folding stuff or you only use your gen set occasionally & for those that have had no trouble with theirs, its only a matter of time. trust me, they are a disposable item..

Generator burning my electronics up


take you generator in and have the output tested for correct voltage and sine wave configuration
electronics rely on a perfect sine wave ac current as a manufactured sine wave affects electronic components such as capacitors, transistors and diodes
generator sets that run an alternator ( not an inverter ) have a pure sine wave and have less affect on electronics.
go google and type in search headings like ---sine wave, inverter sine wave, sine wave affects on electronics, alternator operation and inverter operations and then you may get a pointer as to why your inverter gen set is affecting your electronics

Eu6500is generator trips to red unload when ac is on


Air conditioner compressors require a greater amount of electricity (measured in both volts and amps, but the amps are what is causing the overload). You will need a larger generator to run your AC. You might be able to run a smaller AC unit, but always check the Amps required and compare that to the Amps the circuit breaker on the generator is rated for.

Can I run my kenmore bottom mount refrigerator from a generator that is not an inverter generator


Yes. The generator must be large enough to produce the necessary amperage to run the refrigerator. It doesn't matter if it's a inverter generator or not.

Hello, thank you for sharing your problem with us, I would personally be happy to provide the most accurate and up to date information for you.



Hello, your direct question is "Do I need to replace again the inverter or are the settings off-I went to factory default?"



There is no need to change the inverter at this time. When you set the device at factory default, it caused a MISCONFIGURATION between the "Diasy Chained" inverters.



SOLUTION



1. CAUTION - YOUR WORKING WITH HIGH VOLTAGE REGULATION AND INVERTERS

2. POWER OFF YOUR DEVICES AS LONG AS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.

3. ONLY POWER UP YOUR INVERTERS FIRST

4. PROVIDE SEVERAL MINUTES WAIT TIME UNTIL EACH OF YOUR INVERTERS ARE COMPLETELY BOOTED

5. FEEL FREE TO INITIATE THE AC ALTERNATING CURRENT SOURCE AT THIS TIME

6. WAIT SEVERAL MINUTES TO ALLOW THE CURRENT TO RUN THROUGH THE COMPLETE CIRCUIT OR INVERTER DAISY CHAIN.



PLEASE RETURN IF YOU REQUIRE FURTHER HELP ON YOUR SAME PROBLEM.



THANK YOU

Helloi bought a new TR2424-230-50 inverter and 2 X 12V batteries connected. When charging with my 5KVA generator the generator frequency is very unstable and the amps (a/c) drawn is upto 10A. Is there a...


Frequency is a function of generator RPM. Slower the engine, lower the frequency. Faster the engine, higher then frequency.

Look at your generator first, it should be able to maintain this load without problems - check your governor.

You can try plugging in a lamp directly into the generator so that it won't see a pure inductive (input to inverter) load, but will also see the resistive load from the lamp.

Power Draw of 10Amps is going to be what it is, unless you change the AMP Hour capacity of your battery bank that is connected. Be careful though, as this will not only reduce the charging current (and amount of load present on the generator), but it may also affect how the inverter operates with heavy loads, and may cause the charging profile to go into bulk and float modes prematurely.

Are you feeding your generator into the inverter via the transfer switch, or are you plugging the coach power cord into the generator? The former would force all the AC loads to be switched by the inverter, the latter allows all ac loads to be powered, even those that you may not know about / realize (water heater loads are a big one) and eat up generator capacity.

Heart Freedom 20 will not default to generator power.


First of all it is possible that the is no power going into the inverter,trace the input source to see if the connection from the generator is ok. check the fuse if it is broken if not, the contactor or switching relay in the inverter is bad

please check the voltage your generator is supplying to the to the inverter because a high voltage and frequency can make the relays in the inverter to make clicking sounds,and also do not allow your inverter batteries to run completely low before you charge it
