Default Troubleshoot Xantrex Xpower 1500 Inverter

I have a Xantrex Xpower 1500 Inverter which has suffered some indignity.

When switched on the green power LED does not light, the red FAULT LED does.

I'm looking for guidelines for troubleshooting this thing.

1. what conditions cause fault indications?

2. test points for sanity check?

3. methods for current limiting while testing?

4. an actual schematic for this device (I have several 'representative' schematics of this device category).

Glad to find this site, Found more here in a hour than in visits to 50 other sites. Right on!

Thanks in advance

I also have a newer XANTREX 1750. The fault is that it will not produce AC when switched on with the unit's panel switch.
However if you switch off the DC and back on again it is fine.
I think the unit is failing to start switching but is shocked on, by the DC power being added.
Would anyone have or know of where I could get a schematic?

Thanks for reading this.

Did you ever get a schematic for the model 1500?
I have 2 units that are 10 years old.
I called the factory and they do not service these anymore and will not provide schematics. They still sell the unit for $630 ea. and are happy to sell me new units.
I said absolutely NO since they refuse to honor the flat repair fee offer of $235 in the owners manual. Why would I want the same problem one more time!
The fault light comes on and says on thus switching off the output.
If I plug in a light, when I switch it on, the light lights for 3 seconds and then the fault light goes on and the receptacles are switched off by the unit.

If you have a schematic or something close, please send it.
