Sungrow Inverter Error Code 010

Sungrow Inverter Error Code 010

Encountering an error code 010 on your Sungrow inverter can be concerning, but it’s a common issue with a straightforward solution. This article explains what the error means, why it occurs, and how to fix it to keep your solar system running smoothly.

What Does Error Code 010 Mean?

The Sungrow error code 010 is related to grid connectivity. It essentially signifies that your solar inverter has lost its connection to the electrical grid. This disconnection can affect the performance of your solar system and needs to be resolved promptly.

Why Does It Happen?

There are two main reasons why you may encounter this error:

  1. Power Outage: If there’s a power outage in your area, your inverter will lose its connection to the grid. This is a situation beyond your control, and the error will resolve itself once power is restored.
  2. Tripped Circuit: If there is no power outage, a tripped circuit in your switchboard is the likely culprit. Circuits can trip for various reasons, such as overload or a short circuit.

How to Fix Error Code 010

If There’s a Power Outage

If you’ve confirmed that there is a power outage in your area, there’s not much you can do but wait for power to be restored. Your inverter should automatically reconnect to the grid and start functioning normally once that happens.

If There’s No Power Outage

If there is no power outage then it is likely you have a tripped circuit in your switchboard.

A tripped circuit in your switchboard means that the electrical circuit has been automatically shut off, cutting off the flow of electricity. This usually occurs as a safety measure to protect your electrical system from overload, short circuits, or potential electrical fires.

Resetting the tripped circuit generally restores power and allows your solar inverter to operate normally again.

Follow these steps:

  1. Check Your Switchboard: Head over to your meterbox or switchboard and locate the circuit labelled “Main Switch Inverter Supply.”
  2. Reset the Circuit: Check if the circuit has “tripped” – look for a switch in the “off” or middle position on your switchboard. To reset it, simply flip the switch fully to the “off” position and then back to “on.”
  3. Restart Your Inverter: Once you’ve reset the circuit, your inverter should restart automatically and resume normal operation.

If That Doesn’t Fix Things

Resolving error code 010 on a Sungrow inverter is usually straightforward—whether it’s a power outage that will fix itself or a tripped circuit that you can easily reset.

If resetting the circuit doesn’t resolve the issue or if you frequently see error code 010, it’s advisable to contact support as it could be a software issue, something that can be fixed remotely or may require a technician to visit your property.
