Ground Fault – Aero-Sharp inverter

What is a Ground Fault?

A Ground Fault in an Aero-Sharp inverter may be the result of an earthing issue, which can be fixed. However, in the absence of an earth leak, this error might indicate an internal fault such as a fused board, in which case the unit needs replacing.


Is a Ground Fault covered by my warranty or home insurance?

Aero-Sharp inverters carry a five-year warranty. However, none has been installed in Australia since 2012 (when the company went into liquidation), so, if you have an Aero-Sharp inverter in your home, it is most likely out of warranty. Unfortunately, Ground Faults are not usually claimable under household insurance policies.

This means that, in the event of a Ground Fault, you will need to pay for a replacement inverter.


How do I fix a Ground Fault?

We suggest you book a health check with Service My Solar in order for our certified electricians to determine the origin of the Ground Fault.

If the Ground Fault error is found to be due to an earth fault, our technicians will be able to repair it. If, on the other hand, there are no signs of any earthing issues, they will be able to advise you on the models that are most suited to replace your faulty unit.

We usually recommend replacing your faulty Aero-Sharp inverter with a similar-sized Fronius Galvo, especially if you benefit from a high feed-in tariff.

For an inverter check, call Service My Solar on 1300 496 278 or book online.
