Clenergy inverter models repair guide\t\t \t\t\tHome\t\t \t\t\tThis repair guide for Clenergy solar energy system inverters aims to assist troubleshooting. It’s not intended to be a comprehensive user guide.\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tCall for more \t\t\t\t\t \t\tClenergy is an Australian company that offers a range of PV solutions for both residential and commercial use, in and outside of Australia. The SPH range of Clenergy’s inverters can output anywhere from 1750W to 6500W, but the models sold in Australia generally output 1000W, 2000W, as well as 3000W. Regardless of the model of your Clenergy inverter, make sure to exert the extra effort to monitor it to ensure that it operates as expected.\t\t \t\t\tHow to Monitor Your Clenergy SPH Inverter\t\t \t\tThe blue power light of your inverter should be turned on during the day because this signifies that your unit is working properly. For you to find out the performance of your inverter, locate the black button on the bottom left of your inverter’s screen. You can use this button to scroll through the menu, but you need to press it a couple of times until you reach the KWH section.\t\t \t\t\tHow to Check Your Daily Energy Production\t\t \t\tIf you want to have a good idea of how much your system produces daily, log the last number that you find in the KWH twice a day: one as soon as you get up in the morning, and another before you retire for the night. This number is the total amount of kilowatts that your system has produced from the moment it was installed until your current reading. The difference between the readings in the morning and at night is your system’s daily energy production.\t\t \t\t\tAverage Daily Production in a Month\t\t \t\tFor you to have a good idea of your system’s average monthly consumption, record its KWH reading twice a day every day beginning on the first day of the month until the last day. From there, take the average of the readings by summing up each of your daily recordings and dividing the result by the number of days in between. The number that you get is your system’s average daily production in a month.\t\t \t\t\tCommon Issues of Clenergy Inverters\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\tNo Utility or Grid Fault. When you see this error code in the display of your inverter, it means that your system may have a faulty fuse or you have encountered a power surge. \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\t\t\tGround Fault. If you see this error code appearing in the display of your inverter, make sure to get in touch with a professional and licensed electrician to have them checked your unit. This is because the issue may stem from the panel earthing. \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\t\t\tIsolation Fault. This kind of error may be caused by water damage, which means that you need to book for a prompt inspection. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\tFor other inverter issues that are not listed above, perhaps it will be better to have your inverter replaced with a new one that is covered with a full warranty.Rest assured that if your inverter was installed within the last five years, then there is a great chance that it is still covered under warranty. In this case, you need to secure your proof of purchase, your panel models as well as their quantities, and your fault code information that you can check through the display of your inverter. It will also help if you can provide the serial number that you can see on top of your inverter.\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\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\tMaintenance and Upgrade\t\t \t\tTo ensure the longevity of your inverter, make sure to have it serviced regularly.

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.
