SW5548 Inverter Generator Menu Off and EQ Not Selectable
However, the generator did not start, or even attempt to start, when I clicked the green button on the SW5548 inverter from the Off position to the On position. So, I went to put the inverter back to the Off position and "missed" it. It, the underline cursor, jumped to the Auto position. So, I tried it again, and missed, and again, and, again. Grrrrr The buttons can be sensitive so I tried again ..being really, really careful..and missed again. Double grr..tried it again, and saw I was also missing the Eq position. Over & over. What the heck?
So, I tried the "slave" inverter, the one that has to have the generator selection in the Off position all the time. And, guess what? it jumps the EQ and Off positions also. I cannot get it back into the Off position so it is in the Auto position. I turned only that inverter off, which shuts off power to the house even though the "master" inverter is still on, and tried to get to the Off position but nope...jumps Eq & Off so it is still in the Auto spot.
And, I did get the generator to start using the Master inverter in the On position and it is running now, charging it's battery, but I cannot turn it off via the inverter.
Any of you know why I cannot get to the Off or Eq positions?
Is there a setting that was changed when the AGMs were installed that prevents the Off and Eq being selected?
Do I need to turn both inverters off to get to the Off position on both inverters?
Is this dust on the buttons causing the problem, requiring me to remove the covers and clean them, which they have never been cleaned since they were installed in June 2001?
Is there an issue with having both the Master & Slave inverters generator setting in the Auto position as long as I have the manual switch on the generator itself in the off position, preventing it from starting no matter what the inverters tell it to do (with this weather and the state of charge of the batteries it will not need to run anyway)? I just wanted to have generator start and run for a short time to give it's battery a charge. I should have left it alone. Grrrr
