No-one can really get to the bottom of it - our shore power cut out and the inverter now just won't turn on.
A 10 year warranty on new models probably sounds like the way to go now.

that's 2007, twelve years old..

I'll ask, but usually I recommend to replace when it's that old...you can actually get a 10 year warranty now on new products.

But..what exactly is / is not working on your inverter?

Thanks Chris - they were actually the guys who told us the parts are now obsolete.
Looks like we'll need a brand new one after all!

Hi Tom
We had a 2009 Victron Quattro repaired by NST, to install some new transfer contactors and associated wiring for < €200 last year. They may be able to help if you're not too far away. NST are Victron's designated repairer for legacy products.

realising just how much we were dependant on our inverter, I bought a cheapie on the net as a just in case. We had a rainwater leak that dripped into the inverter and with a loud pop and a cloud of smoke it died. An hour later, the spare was installed. Most things worked OK, but the sound system and the fridge didn't. On the lable it said Pure Sine wave but clearly it wasn't. So we had to manage for a few days til we got a new victron. Worse, I had long lost the details of where the impostor had come from. So we ended up paying twice.

Hi Thomas,

Can you share the serial number? I can then ask if that statement is true (I work part-time for Victron)

Hey
Our Victron inverter has packed up.

This model: www.es-store.co.uk/product_details.php?product=PHM24/3000-70-230V-T50A&description=Victron-Phoenix-Sine-wave-multi-plus.-24V-3000VA-Inverter-with-70-Amp-Charger.&cat_desc=Victron-Multiplus&cat_id=74&show_menu=23

We've spoken to a couple of places and because it's over 10 years old apparently they no longer do replacement parts for our model.
Any ideas if there's any hope of repair before trying to find £1,200 for a new one!!!
Many thanks
Tom
