    my 500W MSW inverter: when i connect to battery, it starts beeping, red light “on” and fan starts working, booklet says, if it is heated over 75c it turns off due to thermal resistance protection and will be ok after 15minutes, but A/C power is not turning on although i kept longer period on fan mode and kept aside for cooling over 6 hrs now, any body could advise what to do next

    Oh boy where to begin! Are you getting any power out? What happens if you connect a small 10 – 15 watt load? Are you located in a hot climate? Is the polarity correct? Is the battery fully charged? What does the volt meter say about battery voltage? Most inverters will also behave this way if battery voltage is too low. Do you know for certain that the inverter is working or did you get this in uncertain condition from a garage sale or a friend.

    If it is brand new, still under warranty get a replacement.

    Since its new take it back for warranty replacement. When I worked for Xantrex we expected a considerable failure rate( infant mortality) especially in the lower price range. It was cheaper to simply replace defective units with no questions asked than expend more cost to build better quality. At least that was how the cost accountants figured it.
