HOW TO SELECT A NEW REPLACEMENT INVERTER FOR YOUR OLD WORNOUT BROKEN UNIT

We have created this Inverter Conversion list below (for both Utility GridTie Solar Systems and also RV-Boats and OffGrid battery Inverters and Chargers) to help you simplify your quest to replace your OLD inverter (broken, out of warranty) with a NEW inverter (with a full factory warranty, 2-10 year free warranty from the manufacture. Length of warranty depends on the inverter model/manufacture). Contact us for details.

In order to determine your exact model number of your older inverter, locate the label attached to the inverter and look for the complete model number including all numbers and letters and WRITE IT DOWN because we will need it for all correspondence.  Please also note the serial number for future reference.

View the left hand column of the chart below under “OLD INVERTER”, to find what you already have, then  view to the right  of the chart, to select the “New Inverter” replacement.  You may have other choices that you will need to consider when using this list, such as reconfiguring and updating your system.  This list below is only for replacing like items with like items. In order to confirm compatibility of your OLD Inverter which needs to be replaced by a NEW Inverter, contacts us, and our Solar CowboyZ staff will be happy to assist you.

All of the replacement NEW inverters listed below have service centers located throughout the USA, and many other parts of the world. Should a problem occur with your NEW inverter, we will direct you to an authorized service center near your location.

Solar CowboyZ can test your OLD inverter to determine whether it can be repaired.  Call Solar CowboyZ at (530) 273-4895 for free, over the phone support.

  1. IMPORTANT: First, retain your Return Materials Authorization (RMA) by calling us or emailing us with your Inverter/System details.
  2. Pack your inverter very carefully, ideally, in the original shipping box and call us for shipping instructions.
  3. A service charge of $195 USD is required to test and fix any minor issues within one and a half hours of time. If your OLD Inverter is determined to be unrepairable, then Solar CowboyZ will credit the service charge of $195 USD towards the purchase of a NEW replacement Inverter and your OLD Inverter will be kept as a core for recycle.
  4. Repair parts and shipping in both directions are the responsibility of the customer.  Please allow up to 10 days for servicing your older inverter.
