Solar Power

The inverter got to it's destination yesterday. 5-10 days to repair, then return shipping.

In the meantime, the cheapo inverter is doing it's job. The whole system has been running since the 17th. With the new battery, the voltage never drops below 12.6VDC overnight, which for a lead acid battery is considered still fully charged, and peaks up by noon, sun or cloudy. The frozen water bottles I put in are still rock hard frozen on the bottom of the fridge, the soda bottles one rack up are not frozen, but when you crack the seal, they crystallize. Perfect temp for soda. :lol:
 
Got an email, the inverter is en route back already. Hoping they include a diagnostic repair sheet or something, curious what failed. I'm thinking an internal fuse or something very easily replaced.

..if not, just drop it by the shop and that SGI feller that claims to be a genu..geeni..genw...really smart feller about all things electronic could take a look at it for ya.




Then he declares it irreparable.


Then he fixes it.


Then I have the first component for my copy build of your system.

So... He's Scotty?
 
They shipped a brand new unit, did not repair the old one.
I might have a clue as to why the first inverter failed. The fan never turned on. I just assumed it never got to the fan trigger point of 65*C, it was relatively cool to the touch. The fan turns on with the new one. I'm thinking the fan was broked and the unit burned up internally, even tho it didn't feel warm.
