Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I just heard from the electronic repair guy who is working on my inverter Here is the body of his email: Have managed to remove the top Printed Circuit Board. Closer inspection indicates that both Resistors are Cracked and the one that is discoloured has been overheated by excessive current. I have ...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

So did you remove the bottom board? If it is held only with screws then any repair job will be much simpler.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I did figure it out eventually and the inverter is now at a local shop for repair. The owner didn’t seem too confident about removing the bottom board from the box. I’ve sent him a link to this thread for reference so if anyone has any additional info that could be helpful please post it here. Kiev,...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I’ve found someone in my local area who can replace the resistor so I’m removing the inverter at the moment.

Can someone tell me the secret to this connector? Where is the release mechanism?

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

I had a good look and I don’t see any reason why I can’t remove the unit. I’ll see if I can find someone local to work on the board. Do we know what resistor to order? And where to get it? I appreciate your offer to work on it. I hope someone around here will do it but Its comforting to know that i ...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

So I finally got back into the inverter and that resistor is cracked https://imgur.com/a/CL1X54H The part # is obscured by the potting and it’s proximity to the 2nd resistor beside it. So... any guesses as if this could be the cause of the charging problem or if it is a result of another problem? An...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

And there is no error light when using l1. Again I’ll check the exact sequence of the lights this evening if that’s helpful.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

The charge light blinks when I plug in.

I’ll open it up again tonight and photograph that component more closely.


I’m really glad you saw that. I was quite disappointed when I couldn’t see anything wrong.

Thank you

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

So I opened up the inverter again and I couldn’t see anything obviously wrong. Images of the circuit boards are below along with a closeup video scan. I wiggled all the spade connectors on the board but it didn’t change anything. Bottom of the top board https://imgur.com/a/w6eQjSW Video of the botto...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Great , thank you! I will have a look at removing that board. I was very careful to not get debris into the electronics.

I see there Is no gasket on the lid just a sealant. What type of sealant is It? I’ll need to get some.
