We see defective KC-120's almost weekly on RV systems and Kyocera has been great in handling the claims. FYI, you do not need to wait for the modules to fail to warranty them. The labor reimbursement needs to be applied for and approved prior to replacing the modules. For information, contact Amie.Ebert AT kyocera DOT com.

Subject: [RE-wrenches] Warranty replacement (was Astopower 120 failure)

Our customer, an engineer in San Diego, self-installed 28 KC120 modules in 2002. May 25, 2010, he reported that the array output stopped. The same day I emailed him that his test results indicated that the problem was bad cell interconnects, that Kyocera knew of the problem, did not recall the modules, but instead was replacing reported bad modules, and gave him some Kyocera email addresses. The next day someone from Kyocera emailed our customer. June 9 the replacement modules arrived. I don't know if he received remanufactured modules.
