You need to get the DC sorted sooner rather than later as DC will arc and cause a fire.


See this link not something you want, or just Google solar panel fire.

I was never told when I purchased my system that the avergae life of an inverter is reckoned to be about 8 years.I have had my system 5 and it is still going strong…Have any members had their inverter go down?The quoted price of a Sunny Boy 3000 is about £600. Replaving an inverter ought to be a trivial job. How much have members paid?Care to share your experiences?

Fronius inverter fitted 2010 now shows fault which will mean failure very soon. New Inverter, Model Upgrade (Fronius), due to be fitted soon. What does by FIT provider (SSE) need to know?
