All connections should be firmly tightened at SPV module.

Donít connect in reverse polarities while replacing battery.

 

 

 

 

 

Maintenance

Clean the solar panel regularly with a damp towel to ensure optimal performance of the SPV Module. Donít use any type of solvent for cleaning and be careful not to put too much pressure on the panel during the cleaning process. To extend the life of your Home Lighting System, it is recommended that solar panel is stored indoors during the winter months or any other extreme weather conditions.

Routine Maintenance

  • Keep the SPV Module free of Dust and Bird dropping etc, by wiping it with clean damp/dry cloth.

  • Keep the Lamp cover clean to get maximum light out put.

Troubleshooting

1. Home Light not switching ON:

  • Check the fuse if it is not OK, replace it with 500 mA fuse, if fuse is OK, check the battery.

  • Check Battery Low (Red LED) indication, if Red LED is ON, then Battery needs charging.

2. Battery not charging (Green LED not glowing):

  • Check for loose contact in the SPV module to Lantern cable.
  • Check the SPV Module output voltage. If it is not sufficient check any shadows / physical obstructions, which are blocking sunlight falling on the SPV Module. If still problem exists replace the SPV module.

3. Battery discharging frequently:-

Replace the battery as mentioned below:

  • Disconnect the SPV Module.

  • Open Lantern carefully by unscrewing three screws of the bottom of the lantern.

  • Remove the battery clamp and disconnect the battery by removing lugs.

  • Carefully remove the Battery from the Lantern.

  • Place the new Battery in the Lantern, and observe the polarity while reconnecting the terminals. (Red for +VE and Black for ĖVE).

  • If none of them works call nearest service center/factory.
     

CAUTION!

  • When storing any solar product for an extended period of time, be sure to remove the batteries.
