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

Unfortunately, if you put AC power on the output of the inverter, you have likely blown the output transistors. Although the inverter can produce AC, they generally do not survive AC from some other source being put onto the output. MY guess is that the inverter is shot, but repairable.

Sorry for the bad news. If I were you, I would call Xantrex and see what they say.

The red light fault you experienced was from the short, which caused an 'overload' on the device. It is designed to shut itself down under such conditions so as to not cause major harm to the unit.
It may correct the fault indication after the short is removed (ie: no more playing with electronics when you are not so trained), and the unit should work again.

Your mention of the fuses being in a "very tight spot" is typical in most such devices to make them as small and inconspicuous as possible. Working on such devices requires the technical expertise in dismantling and testing, then making needed repairs before again restoring the proper construction. Be very careful because you can damage other components by not handling carefully, and with the proper equipment.

If the output is shorted or if there's a problem in the inverter itself, such as a bad diode or such, then it will do that. Humming beyond a little sound is an indication that it's pulling too much power.

Xantrex inverter error codes


This information expands upon the error code information contained in the Link 2000 Owner?s Manual.
E-01 Inverter high DC/Battery voltage shutdown Battery voltage has risen above 15.5 VDC for 12-volt models or 31 VDC for 24-volt models.
E-02 Inverter low DC/Battery voltage shutdown Battery voltage has dropped below 10 VDC for 12-volt units or 20 VDC for 24-volt units.
E-03 Inverter or Charger overtemp shutdown Unit will reset automatically after it has cooled sufficiently.
E-04 Battery overload Caused by excessively discharged batteries. See section in inverter owner?s manual titled ?Charging overdischarged batteries.?
E-05 AC Backfeed AC power from an outside source has been fed to the AC output of the inverter. Potentially damaging to the unit. Disconnect incoming AC power and correct the situation.
E-06 Electronic Overload Inverter overload caused by too large a load or a short circuit. Reset by cycling power switch or connecting incoming AC power.
E-07 Triac control error Triac has overheated. Shut down unit and allow to cool.
E-08 High battery voltage shutdown during charge mode Check all charging sources for proper voltage. Reset by cycling the power switch.
E-09 Spare
E-10 Link 2000 de-powered This indicates that power was removed and restored to the Link 2000.
E-11 Spare
E-12 Battery #1 voltage sense leads open Blue wire is not connected to battery #1.
E-13 Battery #2 voltage sense leads open Violet wire is not connected to battery #2. E-14 Inappropriate Charged V selected for sensed voltage This value defaults to 13.2 for a 12-volt system, 26.4 for a 24-volt system. If this setting is above the voltage limits of the charging source, this error code will be displayed. Please refer to page 9 of the Link 2000 Owner?s Manual
E-15 Incoming AC polarity reversed Check incoming AC wiring for a reverse polarity condition.
CCC Indicates battery being charged. Displayed when Time remaining is selected. LO BAT More than 50% of declared capacity of battery 1 or battery 3 has been consumed.
OL Meter reading out of range U xx Designates a user setup CEF. Please read the sections pertaining to CEF on pages 19?22. A Designates Alternator output current on a Link 2000-R. is a number from 1?200. P Indicates Percent of charge mode selected. is a number from 1?100.

3K is a big inverter. Depending on mfr, though, inverters put out numbers for PEAK, not AVERAGE Watts, and have trouble supplying large amounts of surge current on demand. Some appliances with large motors present large turn-on demand, like A/C's, washers, ovens, and fridges and will give converters trouble.
Your Microwave, if it's a big one, like a 1.2 or 1.3KW will ask for a lot of juice when it first turns on. But once it's on for a few seconds will probably be OK.
Get a bigger or different inverter, or a smaller microwave.

Yes. That's what that means. 3 strings of series wired panels. Now, the panels are going to be around 30 volts (vmp), so it all depends on the input voltage of that unit. I'd check the voltage range of the charge controller. If it's limited to lets say, 192 volts max for a 48 volt system, you can do 3 strings of 6 panels to keep it under the voltage.This will give you a 4230W panel output every hour, which is substantial.
