What is the warranty process for faulty SMA inverters?

In the event that your SMA inverter stops working, as an SMA service partner, we are happy to help you with a warranty claim. As long as your unit still falls within the warranty period we can assist with all types of warranty repairs or replace the whole unit if necessary. You just need to provide us with:

  • A copy of your receipt to prove that the inverter is still within the warranty period.
  • Any information you can provide about your installation.
  • Your inverter’s serial number which is located on a label on the upper right-hand side of the unit.

Once you’ve supplied these details, we can submit the warranty claim on your behalf. Once it has been approved, we’ll contact you to arrange a suitable time for your replacement parts or replacement inverter to be installed.


What support is available for SMA inverters that are out of warranty?

In the event your SMA inverter develops a fault after the warranty period has expired, we can still attend to conduct a health check on your system. We always bring replacement inverters and spare parts with us, so regardless of the fault we can get you back up and running in the one visit.
