My Proven 6000 appears to be broken!
by Stuart at 2007-06-03 14:38:34 (Blog::Stuart)
Last Monday I returned from a short break to find the turbine hardly turning in a full wind. I was worried but didn't think to much of it. Now it is not turning at all.
I have reported it to my installer who has in turn passed it onto Proven. I am still in the warranty period as I installed it less than a year ago.

It appears that the brake system has been redesigned since my machine was installed. On my model a rubber restraint can fail that allows a part of the break system to rub against the main axle creating friction.

I will keep you posted!

Up to the failure we had made 3324 kwhs.
