Not sure about that either............there are some Service Centers over here in the U.S. for those, but due to the cost involved and the age of the unit, I think the best course of action would just be to replace it with a newer model. Xantrex and Magnum both make some great units and they can be found numerous places on the web at good prices. Amazon and E-Bay have some competitive sellers. I am adding a link to their site and they may be able to direct you to a repair facility over there. pe that proves helpful here. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee.
