I have a Statpower PROsine 2.5/3.0 inverter/charger. I heard a pop and smelled hot wiring after a power outage, when the power came back on. Anything I can replace or do to fix?

Lynn-- I don't understand what you're trying to do. The Xantrex Statpower Prosine 1800 GFCI 24V 806-1850 is an electrical power supply inverter, designed to convert (usually) battery power (direct current) to house power (alternating current). How is an address applicable to this function?

Looks like I have found the problem with why my two inverters smoked. I did not have shore power and was using a Generator. I purchased a New Generac 7kw gen. Well there is a short between the Neutral and the Ground on the Gen. Not sure if this intended or a defect. So When I connected it and the Inv sensed shore power the charger would come on and in about 15 min it would just burn up. Never tripped the breaker. This is a design short fall in the inverter and it should have a protection circuit to warn you and shut it down, I am using this in my camp and it almost burned down my camp! I have switch to a different brand inverter now.

This is a know and widespread problem with the Prosine 2.0, yet when you call Xantrex, they want to charge you to return, repair and/or replace the remote panel. Shame on you Xantrex.

Where can I buy or get a Prosine 2.0 remote repaired ?

Nowhere (if not under warranty for replacement). They are a known problem. Prosine inverters are almost impossible to repair (Even one of their local authorized repair shops said even they could not do repairs on the Prosine although it was relatively easy on other models.) Have to order the display from Xantrex directly and they don't have many left. from

Xantrex Prosine 1800i "DCDC Shutdown" when connecting AC Load

Hi Schnupfy,

Well, it may be advertised as 1800 watts, but that is a peak. While the 230 VAC may be dead on target, don't expect it to run a mig welder.

Sustained high output is totally dependent upon the power source. What it's doing is protecting itself. DCDC Shutdown indicated 'An overload or system Fault'

Possible problems that would cause this:

  • The load is too high (what is the load?)
  • The power source is intermittent or weak
  • The power source is run through a distribution panel or isolator (Voltage drop)
  • The wiring from the 12VDC source is too long for the gauge used
Click here for a PDF copy of the manual. It is quite well documented.



My prosine 2.5 charger inverter intermittent

First try blowing it out the unit with compressed air to see if there is large amounts of accumulated dirt inside, look for black soot on the center of the air outlet side.

Intermittent problems are the hardest to troubleshoot.
