What Should I Do if My Panels Are Not Working?
If you are thinking, “How do I know if my solar panels are working,” or find that they are underperforming or broken, you could try a few ways to get things running again.
Visually inspect your solar panels.
If they aren’t dirty, as mentioned above, look for any damage to the frame or cracks in the panel. From there, see if there are any loose wires or anything that appears to be out of place. If you find any of these issues, it’s best not to address them yourself, as it could cause further problems.
Restart your Inverter
This is done by flipping the fuse connected to the inverter and leaving it off overnight to give the system enough time to discharge. When you flip it back on in the morning, it should have reset the system, and your solar panels should be working correctly again.
Contact Your Solar Company
Your best — and easiest — option is to contact your solar company directly; they should be able to check the functionality of your panels remotely. If they find that your panels are underperforming, or even if they don’t, a solar advisor will come to your home to inspect your system in person. An experienced solar company, like Axia Solar, can diagnose and address any problems to ensure your system is up and running again in no time.
