Re: Overheating EVSE plug

Most electricians will have no clue how to test the EVSE in any meaningful way. Checking the output voltage won't be very useful since no EVSE ever changes the the input, it just turns a relay off and on, and you usually need a car emulator to in order to get the EVSE to close the relay and energize the plug.powersurge wrote:Bring the EVSe to an electrician to see If you and plug the 240 volt plug into a 120 volt (or has it been modified in the box) EVSE box. Also, they can check how many volts are actually being given out at the end of the J1772 plug. Just get a new charger that is made for Europe man...
Even if you decide to replace the EVSE, OP, check that outlet. It may not be the EVSE at all.
