Product Safety Recall - GoodWe MS G3 inverter AC plug


Reason for Recall: The inverters have been supplied with an AC plug that does not comply with requirements of the relevant electrical safety standard. The AC plug can be removed without the use of a tool and expose consumers to live terminals.

Hazard: There is a risk of serious injury or death from electric shock if consumers remove the AC plug and access the live terminals.

Please also reference:

Dear Customers,

The AC plug on the MS G3 inverter has been identified as a non-compliant component on the inverter for Australia and New Zealand. This plug can be manually unplugged without the need for any tools. Removing this AC plug poses a risk of serious injury or death from electric shock to the consumer, if they attempt to access the live terminals.

It’s important to note that this specific AC plug is only used on MS G3 5-10kW inverters and does not affect previous generations of the MS inverter, nor any other GoodWe product whatsoever.

Rectification Solution:

GoodWe is actively addressing the safety concern associated with the AC plug on the MS G3 inverter. In collaboration with the plug supplier, a connector clip has been introduced to encase the AC plug, as shown in the provided photos (see below). This additional measure ensures that a tool is required to remove the AC plug, thereby enhancing safety.

Above illustration shows connector clip and how it will attach to the MS G3 AC Plug.

GoodWe acknowledges that the risk associated with the AC plug is limited, as it requires power and a specific method for unplugging. Despite this, GoodWe is proactive in addressing the situation and encourages all consumers currently using the MS G3 to get in touch with GoodWe via our dedicated support channel:

support@goodwerecall.com.au or call 0488 851 481


You must not attempt to remove the AC plug on the inverter.

Instead, please action these steps immediately:

• Switch off the inverter at the “INVERTER A.C. ISOLATOR” switch (if there is one installed adjacent to the inverter), and

• “MAIN SWITCH (INVERTER SUPPLY)” on the switchboard.

If you are unsure of the above steps, please leave your inverter alone and contact us on our dedicated support channel to arrange rectification works asap, or alternatively contact your solar installer.


Connector clips have been distributed to all national approved GoodWe distributors. Each clip is packaged with a straightforward SOP document and will be added with each existing MS G3 inverter, to allow you to purchase and collect MS G3 inverters and carry out new installations as normal, using the connector clip and SOP to be fully compliant.
