Do you have a SEA Orion Solar Inverter No Utility Issue?
If your SEA Orion Solar Inverter is displaying a “No Utility” message on the screen and the red Fault light is lit your solar power system won’t be producing any power, so you want to do something about it ASAP. The “No Utility” message means that your SEA Orion Inverter is not detecting any power from the electricity grid and because of that it’s not working, so we need to work out why.
What can you do about a SEA Orion Solar Inverter No Utility issue?
Check the the plug connectors underneath the inverter are connected properly and the following switches are turned ON:
Inverter AC Isolator beside the inverter (if applicable)
Solar Supply Main Switch on the switchboard
If these 2 switches are both on and the plugs into the bottom of the inverter are firmly in place you are going to need some expert help. A solar accredited electrician will need to check whether the power from your switchboard is getting to the inverter; if it isn’t they will need to work out why not and if the grid power is getting to the inverter it looks like it’s an internal fault with the inverter. This should be checked by a solar power accredited electrician.
If the problem does end up being an internal fault with the SEA Orion solar inverter and it was installed within the last 5 years it should be covered under warranty. To make a warranty claim you will need to provide proof of purchase in the form of a tax invoice or Certificate of Compliance from when it was originally installed along with the model and serial numbers found on the side of the inverter.
If your Orion inverter was installed more than 5 years ago then it will no longer be covered under the 5 warranty period. You could try to get the inverter repaired but it can easily cost you more than $500 for the repairs without any guarantee that it’s not going to fail the next day. For this reason we recommend replacing a faulty SEA Orion with a brand new quality inverter with a full warranty.
