Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt (GFCI) Tripped
If the EVSE detects a ground fault, power will be interrupted and the STATUS LED will illuminate (red
flash with intermittent green). The EVSE will attempt to reset automatically and re-attempt charging (see note below on European models). If the fault condition persists after an initial automatic
attempt, per the code, the EVSE waits 15 minutes before a second attempt is made. A total of four
attempts will be made to restore vehicle charging. If the charging mode cannot be restored, the STATUS LED will illuminate solid red, and the EVSE will stay in fault mode.
NOTE: Automatic reset feature after ground fault (STATUS LED will be solid red) does not apply to
European EVSE models. European standards dictate that user intervention is required by
pressing the master clear RESET button on the front of the EVSE housing. If ground fault
condition clears, EVSE will resume charging.
Missing Ground
If the EVSE detects a missing ground connection (rapid red flashing LED), power will be interrupted
and the EVSE will not be capable of charging vehicle until a ground connection has been detected.
Disconnect service power (breaker) and disconnect vehicle coupler from vehicle and contact a qualified Service Solutions U.S. LLC technician to validate the presence of a proper ground.
