Depends on what is going on. Is the GE unit overloading the diode? Are its diode test parameters within specs (if any?) If so, then the finger of blame could shift back to Nissan. Hopefully at some level they're working together on this.redLEAF wrote:Wow, I came close to going with the GE unit but it simply would have been a tight fit (where I needed to have it wall mounted) so opted for a much smaller (and less expensive) Schneider / Sq D which has performed flawlessly for the last 6 months. The GE is a looker but needs to get its act together, I'm sure they'll eventually get this right but a bad rap from Nissan will be hard to overcome easily.
From what I've been able to glean from the forum, the only ones that DON'T test are the AV unit, and the Nissan L1 EVSE. So the dealer will never detect a bad diode without specifically testing for it with something other than their EVSE. Certainly most (all?) of the public ones like ChargePoint and Blink do. Of the home units, I know that SPX, Coulomb, Blink, and apparently GE EVSEs do.Nubo wrote:...I'm curious as to which of the common L2 units does the diode test?
If the GE units were systematically damaging the LEAF I would think we would hear more of these troubles.davewill wrote:P.S. It was nice that the dealer fixed that woman's LEAF for free, but it would be better if someone held GE responsible for repairing a LEAF instead. You can bet they would quickly get their act together.
