Freedom remote does not work?

I have a freedom inverter. According to user's manual, the switch on the inverter (base switch) should be at off position so the remote switch in bedroom will work. I tested it - when base switch is on, remote has no effect; when base switch is off, no 11ovac power at all regardless what position remote is at. Has anyone else had this problem?

No, but I can tell you what the problem is....

Either the wires to the remote, or the switch itself are defective.

(My money is on the switch)

OR... The remote is not what you think it is.

Question: is this remote a "panel" (Multiple controls, and perhaps a display) or is it a simple toggle.. The "Remote" referenced in the manual is most likely a simple toggle.

hi wa8yxm, the remote is on control panel at overhead of bedroom bed. it's a breaker (simple toggle).
i called xantrex the rep confirmed that the base switch should be at off for remote to work...

Sometimes just unplugging the Phone type wire at the inverter for 30 sec or so and plugging it back in will make things work. The remote may need reset and this is the only way to do it.

I would guess then that either teh switch is bad or the wire or the connection.. As The Berrys said unplug the remote lead from the inverter. but then toggle the toggle 50 or so times (exact amount does not matter) before plugging back in.. Sometimes this will clean the switch and cause it to resume operation.

I didn't see the "Phone type wire" but I will go back to check. Thanks both!
