If your waEV-charge EV1 charger is offline, this guide should help!
Reboot the unit
Firstly, try rebooting the unit by turning it off and on again:
- Locate the dedicated circuit breaker, which should be where your installer connected the charger’s cabling to your mains supply.
- Switch it off and leave for 30 seconds.
- Switch back on again.
- If the charger still can’t be found, try and reconnect to the network.
Check your wifi quality
- Make sure you are connected to your WiFi
- Using a device connected to your internet, check if a web page will load and how fast the speed is
- Stand beside your charger and do the same thing, check for the signal strength icon
- If you find the signal drops near your charger, you may need a WiFi extender
- If the signal seems find by your charger location, please check your Firewall and Router GHz settings (chargers sometimes connect to a 5GHz band when it should be 2.4GHz.)
If you are unsure on how to do this, please search for your router and network provider for guidance.
