*** Following is for PV solar monitoring.***
* Check your warranty. Call your Solar PV installer service. (or the salesman)
* Advise them that you need instructions and password to log into your solar monitoring account. (They should have set it up for you and sent you an email with your account link and password.)
* Once the account is set up you only have a short time period (about 2 weeks) to log in and register (or confirm) your account information. ( I requested 3 times for an account reset as the passwords would not work.)
* The problem is that you don't know when the I.T. (Information Tech) will get around to setting up your account. Get with the sales person to get the IT guys on the ball.
* You need to log into your PV monitoring site. (with password) and once on then bookmark this site and keep the account and password on save mode. Then it will be auto log in when you pull up the app to monitor your solar output.

*** The following is for Digital Metering for Home power meters. (not PV)***
* If the Electric company switched out your old analog meter (spinning wheel) with the digital display type then you have a digital meter. There are two basic types.
* The first type is a basic digital meter that keeps track of your power usage. It does not allow reverse power to be sent back to the grid. (well it can't prevent it but it does not record it for your credit.) This was designed to allow the meter to be 'read' at the company's power monitoring stations. This way they did not need the 'meter reader' to stop by your house every month. Remote monitoring (by customer) may or may not be available to the general public. Though the customer can easily read the displays on the meter.
* The second type of digital meter came after the need to monitor the power used and the power sent back to the grid. The meter is required to keep track of daily power and send this information back to the utility company for processing the electrical fees to the customer. The utility company also monitors and records the power return and calculates credits (if any) to be returned to the customer (not in case but as credits that are deducted from monthly bills.)
Note; Not all return power is accepted by the utility as there may be restrictions on how much or at what time period the power is sent back to the grid. Rates apply for restricted times or amounts.
* Contact your utility for specific information on rates and fees.
*** Check your utility bill for more information and contact phone numbers.***

look on the compressor as there is a decal with the compressor details
will show volts , watts and gas in use
as the watts or current used depends on the voltage supplied so as you did not mention that we cannot help you
if you want to run a fridge then the gen set size should be a minimum of 5.5 KVA
that is constant running of 4.8 kva and will allow for compressor start up when more current is used that when running

Naturally due to the size of solar chargers they are going to be a little heavier than a regular charger, but keep in mind that solar chargers are able to charge you device so long as the sun is up.

Let it set overnight is the safest way, put a VOM meter on it (dc volts) to see any voltage is present. You could get a say, ten watt power resistor an place across the terminals to safely discharge the cap. A direct short can be dangerous, cause burns, spark weld the wire or screwdriver to the terminal. Good luck.

Yes very probably and it might not do the solar panels much good either.

When the solar capacity exceeds or could exceed the demand it is very desirable to fit a solar charge regulator, solar voltage regulator or solar panel controller.

Many are available at all price ranges from beer-money to mortgage and both Amazon and ebay provide a wide range though it would be wise to gather some specialist knowledge before you buy.

Small home solar power generation systems are divided into off-grid power generation systems and on-grid power system. The main difference is whether there is a battery.

System Overview
Applicable environment: in the wild, large and medium-sized residential / houses that are difficult in taking electricity (it is not recommended to install in the mains area, or install the mains complementary type).
The system is equipped with high-quality monocrystal silicon or polycrystalline silicon solar panels and has a supporting maintenance-free solar battery, photovoltaic off-grid inverter and charge controller with overcharge and over-discharge protection function, which can be designed as mains / intelligent switching function of the photovoltaic system. The controller adopts LCD screen/indicator display, which is beautiful in appearance, safe and efficient.
Easy maintenance, a long service life of more than 20 years, a variety of charging methods complementary, solar and city power can charge the system.
The small household solar power system is composed of a solar panel, a solar controller, and a battery bank. If the output power is AC 220V or 110V, you need to configure an inverter. All these components you can find it in Eco-Sources solar products at competitive price.

Solar Panels

The function of the solar panel is to convert the light energy of the sun into electrical energy, and the output DC power is stored in the battery. Solar panels are one of the most important components in small-scale home solar power generation systems. Their conversion rate and service life are important factors that determine whether solar cells have value in use. It is made up of the following materials:

Solar Cells: High-efficiency (16.5% or more) monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon solar cells are used to ensure that the solar panel generates sufficient power.
Glass: Low-iron tempered suede glass (also known as white glass) with a thickness of 3.2 mm and a transmittance of over 91% in the wavelength range (320-1100 nm) of the solar cell's spectral response. For infrared light greater than 1200 nm, there is a higher reflectivity. The glass is also resistant to solar ultraviolet radiation and the light transmittance does not decrease.
EVA: A high-quality EVA film with a thickness of 0.78 mm, which is coated with an anti-UV agent, an antioxidant and a curing agent, is used as a sealing agent for solar cells and a connecting agent with glass and TPT. It has a high light transmittance and anti-aging ability.
TPT: The back cover of the solar cell-the fluoroplastic film is white, reflecting the sunlight, so the efficiency of the component is slightly improved, and because of its high infrared emissivity, the operating temperature of the component can also be lowered. Which helps improve the efficiency of components.
Border: The aluminum alloy frame used has high strength and strong resistance to mechanical shock.
Solar Charge Controller

Using a single-chip computer and special software to achieve intelligent control.
Accurate discharge control using battery discharge rate characteristics correction. The discharge end voltage is a control point corrected by the discharge rate curve, which eliminates the inaccuracy of the simple voltage control over discharge and conforms to the inherent characteristics of the battery, it means different discharge rates have different final voltages.
With overcharge, over discharge, electronic short circuit, overload protection, unique anti-reverse protection and other automatic control; the above protection does not damage any parts, do not burn insurance?
The series PWM charging main circuit is adopted, so that the voltage loss of the charging circuit is reduced by nearly half compared with the charging circuit using the diode, and the charging efficiency is 3%-6% higher than the non-PWM, which increases the power consumption time. Overcharged recovery charging, normal direct charge, and floating charge automatic control mode make the system have a longer service life. At the same time, it has a high precision temperature compensation.
The intuitive LED lighting tube indicates the current battery status, allowing the user to understand the usage status.
All control uses industrial grade chips, which can run freely in cold, high temperature and humid environments. At the same time, the crystal timing control is used to ensure accurate control.
Using digital LED display and settings, a one-button operation can complete all settings, the use of extremely convenient and intuitive role is to control the working state of the entire system, and the battery has overcharge protection, over-discharge protection. In places with large temperature differences, qualified controllers should also have temperature compensation. Other additional functions such as light control switches and time control switches should be optional for the controller.
Solar Battery

The function of the battery is to store the electrical energy emitted by the solar panel when it is exposed to light and release it when needed. The solar battery is the application of 'battery' in solar photovoltaic power generation. Currently, there are four kinds of lead-acid maintenance-free batteries, ordinary lead-acid batteries, colloidal batteries and alkaline nickel-cadmium batteries, and the widely used batteries are lead-acid maintenance-free batteries and gel batteries. These two types of batteries are suitable for solar power systems, especially unattended workstations, because of their inherent 'free' maintenance characteristics and less environmental pollution.

Solar Inverter

The direct output of solar energy is generally DC 12V, 24V, 48V. In order to supply electrical energy to 220V AC appliances, it is necessary to convert the DC power generated by the small household solar power system into AC power, thus requiring the use of a DC-AC inverter.

Advantages Of A Small Home Solar Power System
Safe and reliable, no noise, no radiation, no need to consume fuel, no mechanical rotating parts, low failure rate and long service life.
It is environmentally friendly, not limited by geographical location, short construction period, random size, easy assembly and disassembly, easy to move.
The cost of disassembly and assembly is low, and it can be easily combined with buildings. There is no need to pre-embed high transmission lines, which can avoid damage to vegetation and environment when laying cables over long distances.
The voltage is stable, and it is widely used in various electrical equipment. It is very suitable for electricity use in remote places such as villages, farms, hills, islands, highways, etc. It is also an excellent emergency backup power source.
Design Considerations For Small Home Solar Power Systems
Where is the small household solar power system used?
What is the radiation situation in the area?
What is the load power of the system?
What is the output voltage of the system, DC or AC?
How many hours does the system need to work every day?
How many days does the system need to be powered continuously in the event of rainy weather without sunlight?
What is the starting current?
The number of system requirements. https://www.ecosolarwind.com/

Wow! I've hunted and hunted for 'alarms' / 'beeps' / 'beeping' / 'sound' but not a whisper anywhere about this?! Even the official manual says nothing about this condition?

"I" would try disconnecting EVERYTHING... then at the CONTROLLER jumper each contact from one to all of the others to hopefully "reset" your electronics... then reconnect and try again!
