3 phase inverter
I'm a newbe, live in the UK and just found this forum on the internet.
I'm self employed, work on my own and use a 3 phase inverter in the workshop. 240 volts in, 3 phase out. No makers name. Maximum load 13 amps. It's worked fine for the last 4 years then last night although it made the usual noises (switch on then a few seconds later a relay clicks and I've got power) neither motor on the Tool & Cutter grinder would work. I've checked the socket pins on the inverter; all 3 show approximately 300 volts between each pin and earth.
I disconnected the low power motor and wired it direct to the inverter; still nothing.
Next step is to check inside the inverter again (power off, leave it for a minute for the capacitors to discharge) find the relay, check the connections and clean the contacts. 9 times out of 10 when solid state things fail, it's the switches that are most likely to cause trouble. Is there anything else I could do before getting it expensively overhauled?
