    my 10 kw sma has a removable relay?, looks not unlike a cordless drill battery. instruction book mentions cleaning the contacts on this or replacing.
    worth a look?

    Re: sma inverter gone bang

    its a wb 6000 a and on checking books with it nowt like that in it?
    Maybe Varistors or something over voltage - but as dead no lights or error codes - I am a bit lost so far.
    No warranties etc valid - chap that services turbine for me still not got back to me -so on my own .
    Guess way to come for all these renewables on day with all gaurantees/warranties/companies come to an end.
    Anyhow Ill try other sma suppliers to see if I get any help ?

    SMA are a reputable company, and it would be worth contacting their Milton Keynes office. At worst I know they have a "service-exchange" scheme, regardless of warranty status, but I expect you have to pay a good bit more if the unit is out of warranty. Or they might put you in touch with a repairer - there's nothing exotic inside them, and repair is certainly a viable option.
