Question about Vector VEC056 MAXX Power Inverter

Vector vec 051D 3000 watt fan won't run anymore, unit overheats

I attempted to run a small 750 watt heater for 15 minutes and the inverter overheats. The fan has not worked since about 6 months after I purchased it. I have only used it to run a small refidgerator that is on constantly but only requires power less than half the time. I also run a 1000 watt microwave for 10 minutes at a time and the inverter doesn't overheat.

Your inverter needs to cool at all times , if the fan does not work,try buying a small standing fan to blow cool air to you machine, it is possible that your heater is making the inverter to over heat please avoid using the heater on the inverter

Hello, I hear you. Was the reason to supply 240 volts? When you try the inverters separately, do you get 120Volts output? Let us look at the units working individually first and go from there.

I have a vector VEC051C 3000 Watt inverter, the vent fans run continously without load, can it be modified to cool only when, the temperature increases..


If it has a 12 volt fan, you can replace it with one designed for computers that has a built-in thermistor. These fans will automatically increase or decrease their RPM depending on the ambient temperature. I have seen them in 70,80,120mm sizes. As long as the inverter is on, you do not want the fan to ever be completely off because even without load some heat is generated and can build up inside if no ventilation is present. Although the fan will never completely turn off, this might be the easiest solution if your goal is to make the inverter quieter (and use less energy) when not in use.

A ups mosfet ckt one mosfet burnt out og 16 can i replace only one


Usually the mating one has been degraded or damaged as well. Replace as a pair, or all of them that are in the same function.

OFTEN driver transistors and drive diodes are also damaged. Carefully check all associated components to avoid burning out freshly replaced ones.

Fan doesn't run on my power inverter


I can't answer your question but I strongly suggest you urgently contact the manufacturer or dealer in order to clarify this most important point as a 3kw inverter isn't cheap and shouldn't need replacing very often.
