Q: The inveter has intermittent power and the green light flashes irregularly?
A: Adjust the plug to fit securely in your vehicle's 12v DC socket.

Q: The inverter has cut out after continuous use?
A: The the thermal cut out has shut down the inverter as it has exceeded 65C. Switch off, leave to cool and it will automatically reset.

Q: There is an alarm sounding from my inverter?
A: The inverter alarm will sound if the input voltage drops to 10.5 volts. This indicates the battery will need recharging.

Q: My inverter has shut down automatically?
A: 1) All the Powersource inverters are internally fused. All the cigarette adaptors are fused. Check the fuses.
2) If the input voltage exceeds 15v then the inverter will automatically shut down.
3) If the input voltage drops below 10v the inverter will shut down leaving enough battery voltage to restart the vehicle.
4) If the appliance has a wattage higher than the inverter specification then it will shut down automatically.

Q: The inverter has cut out after continuous use?
A: The thermal cut out has shut down the inverter as it has exceeded 65C. Switch off, leave to cool and it will automatically reset.

Q: When do the internal fans come on?
 A: The fans will run whenever the inverter is switched on in order to keep the unit cool

Q: How long will a 500watt inverter last if I have it connected to by car battery? Will it last longer if the engine is running?
A: The running time of an inverter will depend on size (amp/hour) of battery and wattage of appliance being connected to the inverter. Running the engine will make very little difference to running time. The output from the alternator when engine is on idle will be very low.

Q: My microwave oven is 850watt will it run from a 1100watt inverter?
A: The input power of the microwave oven, as found on the rating plate fixed to the oven will be about 1200-1400 watt so will not run from a 1100watt inverter. The 850watt is output power.
