Question about Vector VEC1047BD 750 Watt Power Inverter
If you have a manual for the inverter check and see ifDin there are diagnostic codes with the LEDs.
I looked through this and your description of the problem was not listed in the document, but you may be able to contact the manufacturer and get more information. Basically this is a DC to AC power conversion device, which takes the 12v DC input and converts it to 115V AC
and in does so at a maximum peak power of 750 watts at 115V AC. since your charge controller went bad, it is possible in the process it overloaded this device or the battery system put out too low of a voltage when the charge controller died and low voltage input is not something this unit was able to tolerate. Check your remaining components to be sure they are good, then look at the inverter's board and transformer to see if anything was damaged. I would want to verify the charge controller was good and the batteries in good condition - and perhaps consider replacing this inverter with one more suited to your actual load wattage requirements.

Inverters use high power transistors to create an A/C voltage from a D/C input. These transistors are the common point of failure when the units are not cooled properly or used beyond their rated capacity. (Actually, you should always buy an inverter that’s rating for continuous use is well below what your actual need is). What’s most likely happened is that these have shorted out and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, replacement parts alone will likely cost nearly what a new unit costs.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news; but you basically have a nice paperweight with some pretty lights and fans on it.

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

There is a fuse on these things at the back of the case. Could be in a slide out plastic holder, or in a round holder with a knurled screw or bayonet type cap. If this fuse is not blown, then the news is not good.
