    Have a friend that bought our 1995 Hamada C248 a few years ago and the Power Inverter went out yesterday. Anyone know of a tech or someone who could fix this? Or maybe someone has an inverter that they want to sell? Made a few calls and getting help with this has been a dead end, got one tech that will try and see what he can find but how long will this take? Pres has been running great until yesterday.

    Thanks, Banjoman in NC

    Happy to help

    Send me the part number to make sure we talk about the same part.
    I can help you get a new inverter from Japan

    C248 Inverter

    Thanks for the reply and I got a call back from a tech and he put us in touch with a guy in SC who installed a Mitsubishi Inverter and has been running with no problems for 2 years so we got one ordered and he is going to install it, about $350 for the inverter and he will program it, should be back up and running next week. Turns out when I went over to the shop to look at the press the voltage going to the press is high, 245 volts. That is most likely the reason for the failure and he is calling the power company to get it taken care of, after that should be OK. If there are any problems and we can't get it working I will let you know and thanks for the help.

    power company to take care of it ? Ya right ! It's 50x cheap for you to install a step down convertor to get to you target voltage. Did you check the invertor to see if it has a reset on it? 350 is a good price , for a good unit.
