Anyone know why a Cotek 700w pure sine wave inverter would stop working?
No lights no noise no nothing!!!
Bats ok with in line fuse still ok.
Has been sittimg connected but switched off for about 5 months.
Can a lot of moisture in the air cause issues?
Had a look inside and found no obvious damage.
Any thoughts/advice appreciated.

Cheers
Paul

Yes,A lot of moisture in the air and cause trouble.
                               I would disconnect the inverter and place it in a warm place like the hot press,not too hot,just to warm it up and dispell the moisture gently.Then when you go to start it up,start it up withput a load.Some inverters shut down immediatly if there is a fault on the ac side as well as the dc side so check the load and see if its ok.
