I had a lot of power fault type events (where "a lot" is maybe 5% probability of a problem). Several times the circuit breaker tripped leaving the Blink not powered. It was the new breaker on the submeter, redundant to and downstream of the breaker in the main service panel, never the breaker in the main panel. Sometimes the Blink would call power fault and hang. Sometimes the Leaf would call power fault and refuse to charge until restarted. The electrician who came out to look after one failure said, why not change the breaker just in case? It's cheap and easy to do while he was here. And his hunch turned out to be right.gbarry42 wrote:What led you to try replacing the breaker? Was it obvious (no power to the Blink)? Because I would never suspect something like that otherwise.
Oh, and just hours after I wrote that all my charging problems were solved, the Blink failed to charge my car, although everything looked normal when I plugged in with Leaf timer active. Same old chirping cricket Blink that used to be accompanied by the orange power fault screen, but now it says I should check the car Same fix for the frozen Blink: unplug car, unplug A/C, plug A/C, wait, plug car.
PS, I like your signature, but you know Tony has driven between SD and LA, as have a few others. I doubt if he has driven between SD and Japan, but he may have flown it
