Is the red fault light on your Zeversolar solar inverter lit and the inverter screen showing an Error Code 3 message? If so your solar power system isn’t working, luckily you’ve come to the right place to do something about it!
After seeing the “Error Code 3” error message you will see the readout change to “PAC = 0.0W”, this is telling you that the inverter isn’t outputting any power at all – 0W.
Zeversolar Error Code 3 – What does it mean?
The error code 3 on Zeversolar inverters is a relay check failure and is a permanent fault. Although unlikely, you may be able to correct this error by rebooting your solar system.
To reboot your Zeversolar inverter please follow these steps:
Turn OFF the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
Turn OFF the PV array DC isolator.
Wait for the inverter screen to go completely blank and the red fault light to turn off.
The Zeversolar manual suggests waiting 3 minutes before your turn your solar system back on
Turn ON the PV array DC isolator.
Turn ON the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
Wait a few minutes while the inverter boots back up.
If after restarting the inverter you still see the error code 3, unfortunately it appears you may have an issue with your inverter which is going to require a replacement.
Zeversolar Error Code 3 – What to do
The Zeversolar inverters are covered by a 5-year manufacturer warranty, so if your inverter was installed within the last 5 years the good news is Zeversolar will replace your inverter for you. In order to make a warranty claim, you will need to provide the following information:
Model Number (found on the data plate on the side of your inverter)
Serial Number (which should be visible on the side of the inverter)
Proof of purchase (Tax Invoice, STC form, or paperwork showing the installation date and inverter)
If your inverter is more than 5 years old it won’t be covered under warranty, so you’ll need to contact a solar accredited electrician to discuss replacing the inverter. We recommend doing this as soon as possible as currently your system isn’t working at all.
