Default Electronics repair

Any recommendations for someone who can repair an inverter
(AC->DC)? I don't have any testing tools to find the bad component. Thanks!

You may send it to Marysville Marine Distributors in TN. They have a specialist in inverter repair. Costs you some shipping and must be with a dealer. We are a dealer

If you open it up, chances are it will be one or more of the diodes in the bridge rectifier circuit. It will probable be the first components on the a/c input side. It will be made of 4 diodes. You'll have to lift a leg of the diode to check them with a simple multimeter. Also many times they put a fuse in line on the control board. If I were you I would open it for a look see.
