This often fixes minor issues. The shutdown procedure should be found on your inverter or in the meter box.\t\t \t\t\tAlways remember\t\t \t\tDisconnect the AC supply before the DC supply. To restart your inverter carefully reverse this process.\t\t \t\t\tIs the inverter display blank? \t\t \t\tIf so, a specialist can test your system to learn if there’s an issue with the panels, the DC isolator, the inverter or just the display itself.\t\t \t\t\tIs there an error message displayed? \t\t \t\tCheck the manual – what does the message mean? Record any error messages as they may change, or the display may shut down.\t\t \t\t\tWhat does the user manual recommend?\t\t \t\tIf the manual says take the inverter to the factory service centre, it generally means an internal component has failed. Error messages often describe inconsistent DC power issues coming from the solar panels.\t\t \t\t\tNeed professional help?\t\t \t\tOur technicians are ready to help repair your inverter.\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tCall 1300 007 707 \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\tIs it time to Replace your solar inverter?\t\t \t\tSometimes a solar inverter cannot be repaired. Parts may be unavailable or it’s not cost-effective.In this case you will need a new solar inverter. Solar Uptime can provide most inverters from any manufacturer – most importantly, the right one for your system.So, if you have none of the problems mentioned above and your inverter has a major internal component issue then a replacement may be the best option\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tSolar Inverter Replacement \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\tIs your inverter really the issue? Here are some common issues which may suggest the inverter is faulty when it’s not:\t\t \t\t\tBurnt out/malfunctioning DC isolator\t\t \t\tThis will stop power from reaching the inverter and appear as if the inverter is not working.\t\t \t\t\tSolar cell micro-fractures\t\t \t\tSolar cells can develop micro-cracks which are often invisible to the naked eye. They can still cause performance issues and often develop into dangerous hot spots.\t\t \t\t\tArcing or burnt out connections\t\t \t\tThis often happens when DC voltage connectors under the panels have failed because they weren’t installed properly.\t\t \t\t\tBurn lines across rooftop solar cells\t\t \t\tHard to spot but increasingly common, these often lead to short circuits and major performance issues. Look for dark blue or grey lines generally no more than two or three millimetres wide – usually, but not always, within individual cells.\t\t \t\t\tSolar cell hotspots\t\t \t\tOverheating in a concentrated area of a solar cell can melt solder and/or silicon. This can also deteriorate the encapsulant, which can catch fire or melt through the backsheet.\t\t \t\t\tSeal failure\t\t \t\tDegradation of the seal between the solar panel glass and the metal frame can let water in. This often leads to total panel failure.\t\t \t\t\tBond delamination\t\t \t\tDeterioration of the bond (or encapsulant) between layers of materials within the solar panels causes visible oxidation of the cell ribbons and leads to air gaps forming. This attracts moisture, resulting in panel failures. A very common issue, it starts with a visible browning of the back plate behind the solar cells.\t\t \t\t\tIf you have none of these problems and your inverter has a major internal component issue then a replacement may be the best option.\t\t \t\t\tSolar inverter repairs FAQ\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tCan you repair my solar power inverter? \t\t\t\t\tYes, providing the damages are not exceptionally severe – here are some examples of solar inverter brands we have repaired:ABB / Aurora / Power OneAerosharpCMS / Carbon / Management SolutionsClenergyDeltaEffektaEversolarFive Star EnergyFroniusGeoprotekGinlong / Ningbo Ginlong / EkoGoodweGrowattImeonIngeteamJFYJSIKACOKLNELatronicsMacsolarOelmaierOmnikOrionSamil / Samil PowerSolar RiverS.E.A.SharpSMASolarEdgeSolar KingSolarMaxSolaXSolcoSolisSungrowSunnaSunny RooSunteamsXantrexZeversolarZeus Apollo \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tHow much will it cost to fix my inverter? \t\t\t\t\tThe cost of the repair can be as low as $80 if it is simply a matter of replacing an external plug, switch or consumable part and it isn’t necessary to remove the inverter.Standard workshop repair costs range from $195 to $495 – Please note there may be additional site visit fees applicable. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tWhat if the damages are exceptionally severe and beyond economical repair? \t\t\t\t\tWe provide a full range of solar inverter replacement options if repairs are not possible. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tCan I claim this on my home insurance policy? \t\t\t\t\tYou will need to review your insurance policy details to determine if coverage is applicable for your solar system damages. If you’re not sure, contact your insurance company for clarification.If required we can identify the cause of damage to the solar inverter by conducting a workshop-based electrical component forensic investigation and report. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tIs my inverter covered under warranty? \t\t\t\t\tTo find out if your inverter is covered under warranty, first establish when the warranty period began. This is generally the date the system was installed.The most common inverter warranty period we see is 5 years. However we recommend checking your paperwork as extended warranties are not uncommon and some manufacturers offer up to 10 years – we can assist you with the manufacturer warranty claim process. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tI can’t find my paperwork and the solar retailer who supplied the system has gone out of business. \t\t\t\t\tDon’t worry. This information is available from your local electricity generator, which is Energex in South East Queensland, Ergon in North and regional Queensland and Essential energy for Northern New South Wales. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tMy inverter is under warranty but the inverter manufacturer is out of business. \t\t\t\t\tIt looks like your options are limited and your inverter will need repairing or possibly replacing.
