Although problems with your solar system can arise from any part of it, many problems usually are caused by the inverter. The inverter is the control system for your solar panel. Usually, when this goes haywire, it is relatively easy to fix. Here are a few troubleshooting tips to get your inverter back up and running again.
- Start by rebooting the system
- Look outside to see if your neighbors have power
- Check the fault code and use the manual to fix it
- Make sure the battery is working if you have one
Rebooting the system will fix most problems with your inverter. If it doesn't, it could be a massive power outage in your neighborhood, particularly if your inverter box has no power. Keep in mind that unless you have a battery or a solar generator, a power outage will also shut your solar system down.
If you have fault codes displaying, your manual will usually help you troubleshoot how to fix these faults and get your system back online. Finally, if your battery isn't inserted correctly or has very little power, this could be why your solar system isn't working properly.
