What Can You Do If Your Solar Panels Are Not Working?

There can be many reasons why solar performance can lag or drop off and solar panel repairs can be expensive, so it’s worth taking the time to check yourself (if you are able to), before you call for help. Here are some tips for checking what the issue might be with your solar system:

Check Your Solar System Is Working Properly

  • Check the solar monitoring software: monitoring software monitors the performance of your overall system and some can even monitor the performance of individual solar panels (just one of many reasons to invest in a great monitoring system). If the system is flagging any specific errors or showing overall lower performance, it could be a sign to get help.
  • Check the panels are clean and clear: If there is too much debris build up on the solar panels, they are not going to work very well. If you’re able to, and it is safe to do so, take a look at your solar panels and see if they might be in need of a gentle clean or need some help removing build up. If you don’t feel safe doing this, you can always call in the professionals to inspect your solar panels and help with keeping them clean.
  • Check system components for damage: It’s also worth giving each part of your solar system a look over for any potential damage like cracks, chips, or damaged wiring if you are able to do so safely. We recommend not touching any exposed wiring or any components with visible damage if possible. If you don’t feel that you can safely do this, it’s best to call in a professional to perform an electrical inspection of your system.

What are Common Failures in Solar Panels or Solar Power Systems?

Common problems with solar systems include:

  • Loose connections between the wires and the terminals on either the solar panels or the inverter. Loose connections can cause intermittent problems with the system, including power fluctuations and shorts.
  • Corrosion or damage to one or more components. Corrosion or damage can cause fluctuations in power generation and distribution.

While there can be other problems, loose connections and damage tend to be the most common reasons why a solar system is not performing as well as it should. This is more common in older systems, but can also happen in newer systems as well.

What To Do If You Need Replacement Parts for a Solar System

If the faulty part of your solar system is beyond repair, you will need to get in touch with your preferred solar installer. A solar installer can help you with everything from solar panel replacements to upgrading your inverter or even taking your whole system to the next level with a solar monitoring system or solar batteries.

I’ve used Dan for a few small jobs in the past, and I needed another small job completed in the home, which was in no way urgent. I sent Dan a text message to ask his availability and within 25 minutes, I had one of the team on my doorstep ready to complete the job for me - was great timing that they were in the area! So happy with the communication received from Dan, as well as Crystal in the office and the two tradesmen who came to complete the job. Would happily recommend using the team at FIX again and again. Incredibly impressed with the great service.
