    My Aurora Inverter (a PVI-3.6-OUTD-UK) blew up a month ago. Six months out of warranty so ABB who have taken over Power One didn't want to know. Bought a cheaper Chinese inverter but now have a carcass and a lot of boards that are perfectly serviceable if anyone wants them. Near Wellington Somerset - just off the M5.

    Purely out of interest, how old is it and what size array was it connected to.
    Also, do you know what 'blew up'.

    'Spares or Repair' - ebay - someone will drop a V8 into it

    I have the very same inverter, and it blew up in June, 7 months out of warranty. It turned out to be an overheated joint to a power relay - apparently a common fault - and I was able to get a replacement relay, clean up the scorched board, and it has been working fine for a month now. The original soldering or possibly the printed circuit track could be the problem, so I added some wires in parallel with the vulnerable tracks to hopefully avoid a recurrence.

    If you still have your dud one and feel like having a go at fixing it - or getting someone else to - I'd be happy to give more detail.
