  • 50% of the time it’s a quick easy fix for any solar tech…
  • Error messages and fault codes that are due to an external fault elsewhere in the solar system.
  • The solar system is tricking the inverter into thinking it has that error or fault.
  • External faults are relatively easy to find and repair. Once fault is repaired, the inverter is back online.
  • Other 50% of the time
  • There is a fault, which requires more diagnostic type of testing to locate the fault. Out of these about 1 in 4 can be solved onsite. Things like a dodgy install or water damage somewhere.
  • The rest of the time it’s the inverter that’s the problem. 1 out of every 2 times the inverter can be sent away for repairs or we can organise those repairs under warranty with the manufacturer, and…
  • The rest of the time the inverter was of low quality and either not fixable of not good value to fix. If this is the case we would quote on an inverter with similar specs to replace it with. Getting your system back online fast with high quality parts.
  • In the worst case scenario, rare ground leakage faults are very difficult to find and fix but we have also had experience locating these aswell.
Be careful some dodgy solar guys will just say you need a new inverter without performing any tests just so they can sell you a new inverter that you may not even need!

Client Case Study

Aldo From St Johns Park

Aldo called ACE in regards to his inverter not displaying anything on the screen, as well as his electricity bill spiking.

Initial diagnostics and found the AC power was okay and the AC and DC connections were okay but the DC power was not reaching enough voltage to start the inverter. Inspected the DC isolator at the panels, where we found two DC isolators had water damage due to incorrect installation when it was first put it.

We replaced the DC isolators and carried out more tests. The inverter remained in start-up mode and never entered its on mode. As the inverter was still in warranty, Aurora sent out a new inverter. ACE installed the new inverter and got the system up and running again.
