How to maintain electric vehicle charging piles? Introduction to common faults and repair methods!

Maintenance matters for electric vehicle charging piles
  1. Cleaning
    Clean the surface of the electric vehicle charging pile regularly to remove dirt and dust, especially the charging plug. The plug part needs to be cleaned before each actual charge to ensure good contact.
  2. Sun protection
    Electric vehicle charging piles usually work outdoors, and long-term exposure to sunlight can cause deformation or appearance aging. Therefore, when purchasing a charging pile, it is best to consider its sun protection ability, and also make a habit of regularly applying maintenance oil to protect it from the sun and rain.
  3. Keep dry
    Electric vehicle charging piles are usually used on rainy days, but rainwater can easily penetrate into the charging socket, causing short circuits and damage. Therefore, it is recommended to cover the socket part of the electric vehicle charging pile with a plastic bag or cloth after use to keep it dry.
  4. Place it stably
    Electric vehicle charging piles should be placed stably and not shaken when in use, otherwise faults such as poor contact may easily occur. After use, it is recommended to pull out the plug and place it in the socket to reduce damage.
Common faults and repair methods of electric vehicle charging piles
  1. The socket is partially burned out
    Sometimes the socket part of the electric vehicle charging pile is burned out, resulting in the inability to charge normally. The main reason is that the internal circuit is short-circuited or the work is overheated. At this time, it is necessary to replace the burned part inside the socket and do protective work, such as improving the heat dissipation capacity.
  2. Not charging after connecting to the power supply
    The socket is normal, but the electric vehicle charging pile fails to charge normally after connecting to the power supply. The common reason is that the power supply is overloaded or malfunctioned. It is recommended to check whether the power supply lines, switches and sockets are qualified and normal. If there is overload, you need to reduce the power load or replace the socket with a higher voltage level.
  3. The power cord is disconnected or damaged
    The power cord of the electric vehicle charging pile is relatively long, and is often damaged by bending, twisting, etc. during use, causing power outages in the power cord. Therefore, it is recommended that users pay attention to keeping the cable neatly retracted during daily use to avoid wrapping the cable around the charging pile.

This article introduces the basic maintenance, common faults and repair methods of electric vehicle charging piles. I hope this article can provide you with some reference so that you can better use electric vehicle charging piles and make travel more convenient and safer.
