Had a new system installed in Feb by Save heat and energy ltd . A Solax inverter was fitted.
Before Christmas the system went into fault mode. ''DC INJ FAULT'' and has not worked for 2 weeks.
Have a 20 year warranty, but Solax will not talk to an end user. Save Heat and Energy say they will get an electrician out when thet see his diary.
I could do without the stress of this,Antone got any ideas, Please bear in mind that I am not an expert or an electrician. I just want a system that works
Thanks

The fault mode is described as "DC component over rating in AC output" which is not very helpful unless you have a detailed understanding of what the Chinese engineer was trying to express when writing the original manual before its translation.

I fear you will have to wait for them to send their staff member.

That all depends on each individual day. Over the holiday period, my generation has seen days less than 0.5 Kwh and 2 days over 8Kwh albeit from 6.5Kw of panels. Winter can still throw up the odd reasonable output when the skies clear and I would have hoped the installer would have been more helpful.

Have you tried 'switching it off-then on again'? Just switch the AC isolator off for 30seconds-then on again.
