To keep your electric vehicle (EV) charger in top working condition, follow these technical maintenance recommendations:

  • Inspect the charger cord and plug for any signs of damage or excessive wear. Frayed wires or cracked plugs can present fire and shock hazards, so replace any deteriorated parts immediately. 
  • Check that the charger is mounted securely on the wall or pedestal. Loose mounting can lead to vibration damage over time. Tighten any loose fasteners to ensure stability. 
  • Wipe down the outside of the charger with a soft, damp cloth to remove dirt and dust, taking care not to get any moisture into openings. Accumulated debris can lead to overheating issues. 
  • For outdoor chargers, ensure the ports have appropriate weatherproof covers when not in use. This protects sensitive internal components from precipitation and pests.
  • Inspect power connectors for corrosion and insert/remove the plug a few times to clean contact surfaces. Good electrical connections prevent charger and EV damage. 
  • Check the charger screen and indicators to ensure proper functionality. Address any error codes or warning lights immediately. 

Following these technical tips will help keep your EV charger in reliable working order for safe, convenient charging. Let me know if you need any clarification or have additional maintenance questions!
