My inverter failed one week prior to the 5 year warranty expiring.the company don't answer the phone or email. It was recommended by Solar My Home which I haven't been able to contact either and the installer hasn't answered messages. Inverter is showing No Utility.

Failed three times in the last 6 years. First two times replaced under warranty but now Samil can no longer be contacted in Australia. Deal with this company at your peril! Extended warranty not worth the paper it’s written on.

Have had 3.4kW Solar River inverter for 8.5 years now. Have never had a problem. I helped 17 other people fit solar and at the time I bought 17 3.4 kW units. Only ever had one give trouble, I contacted Samil rep and in 2 days I had a replacement unit arrive on the North Coast of NSW complete with return freight voucher for faulty unit.

Dont buy this brand and especially anything from Samil Power. Warranty issues and replacement issues. They wont honour my warranty. Service desk ,well, if they answer good luck. Emails ,well ,about the same only if they do they simply jack you around until you go away. Cheap and nasty!

inverter works OK but be very careful about the warranty service. If the original supplier/installer has folded then any warranty work will be at your expense. If they are still going you may still be up for the payment of replacement as they may be one of the installers that aren't being paid for warranty work so aren't keen to do it unless you come up with the coin. Yes they will give you an invoice and yes you can send it in to Samil but thats where it ends. Good luck. I will be changing to another inverter when this Samil thing stops.

Since installing my Samil inverter 4 years ago I have had to have it replaced after 2 years and now it's not working again and no one seems to be answering their Lidcombe office No. DON'T BUY A SAMIL INVERTER!!!!
Bought From: Platinum Solar

So far we have had no issues. The 4KW (16 panels) system has been in use since Sept '15 and they are working as they should. However it is important to realise that 4KWs does not mean 4KW of power made every hour. At full capacity they are lucky to produce 3KWs and the sunnier the day the less likely they are to reach full capacity., best days are those that are slightly hazy. The energy supplier will still charge at least $1 a day for connection to them.

Samil inverter faulty and lasted 3 years. Similar Samil inverter faults have been known throughout WA. Seeking claim under Samil warranty was useless and therefore consider twice before purchasing a Samil inverter as they seem unreliable and any attempts to replace or fix the fault by Samil was not responded to appropriately or adequately.

I think if I had my time again I would have invested in micro inverters as you do see the effect of part shading on one panel effecting the performance of the others in the morning and the afternoon.

We chose a WiFi option so that we can a) monitor its performance remotely and b) any faults or problems can be sorted by the manufacturer, remotely. It was installed and paid for on the 19/12/2014.
We had to replace our faulty router/modem, having to resynch all components using WiFi to link with the new modem. I resynced my printer, tablets, phones and FetchTV. However unable to synch inverter. I contacted Brett from Green and Gold Solar for assistance, as the original synching was a drama and he had to come and initialize the Inverter using his computer. This is where the frustration started. My initial phone call in mid August (now late October) it took some time before I could actually advise Brett of issue. After many phone calls, emails and text messages, repeating the same thing over and over, I was finally contacted by 'Service Agent' Brett had passed my request to. He explained he had been given my contact details to sort my problem and that service fee is $160.00.More below.

Has not worked since installation in September 2014. Contacted Samil and Energy Australia. Energy Australia told me that I shouldn't expect a reduction in my electricity costs just because I have solar installed - isn't that the whole point? Samil tried to fix remotely, did not work, but no follow up. Finally in September, Energy Australia agreed to replace under warranty, am still waiting.

Has never had a problem within the first twelve months. We obviously have no comparisons to make with other brands, but the Samil Power unit does everything required of it.

Follow up warranty service is poor and you have to keep chasing them, the panel display goes streaky, when the weather is wet, I have reported the fault to Mark group, but still have not been out to look at it, the solar circuit breaker trips out every now and again, I am not sure if it is our instant hot water service, apart from this the whole system is good and out put is good even when it is cloudy

The electrician mounted it on the front veranda as this position was the least amount of work for him. It makes a high pitched squeal during daylight hours. It is annoying as people attempt to sit here. I tried to explain to Keith Meskell but the money had been paid. Moreover, on two occasions the electrical contractor left his business paper work behind and I had to priority post it to him. This man would be out of his depth in a car park puddle. Get in get out using the least fastest method. Very ordinary trade work!!
