March 11, 2011 Schneider Electric has announced a voluntary recall of its Xantrex GT series single-phase grid-tie solar inverters (60 Hz). The concern is that a component of the inverter can degrade, causing out-gassing within the wiring compartment of the inverter. When arcing occurs, gasses could build and force the compartment cover to be blown off. If the cover is blown off with sufficient force it can injure the user or person, or cause damage to property in close proximity to the inverter.
