SolarMax Solar Inverter Reviews

Errors began in first year, manufacturer went into liquidation, installation company would not replace inverter, inverter is dead in 4 years. Is still under warranty, but warranties are useless when companies will not come to inspect or replace faulty equipment.

The inverter has been running well and the system generated just under 4 Mwh's the first year, however last week it lost the Total Generation facility.
The Total Generation display now resets itself every day, and gives the same reading as the daily display. I have tried to reset everything, but to no avail.
I'm in the process now of contacting the SolarMax Service Centre to see if they can help me out on this, unless you may have some ideas.

Purchased this system through Mark Group in December 2014. System worked wonderfully for 12 months, then just shut down. Device error 56 was being displayed, which turns out is a power measure error. Shut down and restart did not rectify problem so inverter needs to be replaced.

Our inverter is battery ready, so as soon as battery costs become cheaper we will be able to install batteries & better utilize our solar system. Using our excess power via battery would be more cost effective than sending our excess to the grid.

It is on the East wall of the house (no eaves). A representative of the installing company advised us to put a cover ( awning) over it to protect from heat of direct sun. This made it more expensive but gave peace of mind.

Mark Group informed us of a recall of a defective DC isolator, which they had used. Replaced at no cost and little inconvenience.

When I bought the inverter I was told it could be used with a battery system, my intent has always been to add batteries and I was upfront about this when I got the quote. I have since been told I will need an additional inverter to do this.

Please bear in mind that my standard is "Average".

The inverter just works. According to the documentation, the output of the inverter in good conditions is 4.1. It achieves that.
