Does item have a fuse? Burned out

I plugged a coffee percolater in this power inverter and it was too much power for it. It no longer turns on. Does it have a fuse or breaker or is it toast?

I have the same one ...and i'm not seeing a fuse, there may be one internally
does the inverter have strong "burnt wire" smell if so it is probably fried.

Power is on, but appliances connected to the inverter are not working.

power surge or not enough power to the inverter for the items you are running,remember,compressors and heating elements and motors use 3 times as much as ratings to use or start,if you have those hooked up,then the inverter is burned out

How do you reset

When you say a power reset button, do you mean the power button you turn on to power it up or a fuse? I doubt any coffee maker has a fuse any longer. If it does have a fuse, it's internal and you'll have to dismantle the coffee maker and find a replacement. You can find some fuses real cheap at Walmart.

The output(w) is indicating o.oo and it's indicator light is red .I only have a couple of floor model fans plugged. Should it be showing something and should the light be green?

inverters run on a square voltage unlike normal 110 runs on a round voltage, the only 2 things that won't run on the inverter is fans and electric blankets

Turn the computer the only thing that light up is the charging light batt..

Most cases there is no need to replace the motherboard. Try to find out what component has burned and replace it. If the main power supply to the inverter board had shorted, then, the supply giving FET may be burned. You may see as it burned. If the inverter activating device ( a small FET) had burned, you can also see it. In some systems there is a fuse for the inverter supply in inverter board as well as on the motherboard. You can also identify it.Make a reply if this is helpful.

Coffee is not hot

Either you have a corroded electrical connection (probably in the plug) or an element is bad. Try cleaning both ends of the removeable plug until they are shiny.

Can't get power to my RoadPro 1500 DC to AC Power Inverter

I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.

Those starting with the simplest.

1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)

2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
Solution (Replace the fuses)

3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.

If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.

Hope that helps.

I live in asolar powered home and my westbend 3 in 1 coffee maker has quit after one use. Might the initial power surge from the inverter to run the machine burned it out?

more than likely, either the coffee maker has a fuse inside of it, or the inverters lack of a perfect sine wave a/c fried it.
