Yesterday I unplugged the blink and plugged it back in..then after it's 10 minute boot sequence, I got the normal screen and tried again and it worked.
Today I plugged in and I got the error again.
Any ideas? How convenient that it breaks right after the warranty runs out.
Didn't someone document some mods to make this a "dumb" EVSE? I don't use any of the blinks features.
That's exactly what the Blink tech did to fix my unit, except that he used a crimp connector to re-splice the connections to the CT. Two months and no faults. If you have any hesitation to do it, I'd try calling Blink anyway. They might well agree to fix it even at this late date, especially if you tell them it was happening before the warranty was up. The worst they can do is say, "No."Ingineer wrote:Move the CT away from the terminal block, and then re-splice the connections to the CT using solder.
If I'm already out of warrenty, is there any reason to preserve the seal?Ingineer wrote:Oh, and if your unit has a "seal", due to a design oversight, the cover will slip right off over the seal, so you can leave it "sealed".
