Possible cause

Corrective action

Mechanical faults

  • Check to make sure the movable components can move easily.
  • Are the components assembled as described in the building instructions?

Electrical faults

  • Motor direction – correct polarity?
  • Solar module does not produce any voltage – wrong light source?

Energy supplier for solar module

  • Suitable: Sun, halogen lamp, incandescent light bulb.
  • Not suitable: Energy saving bulb or LED light!

Standard for light energy:

The motor turns (with no load) using a 100 W
