Gen 3 Wall Charger stops charging due to high temp
I have a Gen 3 Wall Charger. My tesla (Model Y) shuts off with a warning that charging stopped due to high temp detected. The installation was done by an electrician and the wall charger is connected to the 50 amp circuit in a sub-panel. There is nothing else connected during charging. One electrician told me that there should be a "disconnect" installed between the sub-panel and the wall charger. If not done so, then there might be a back-feed to the sub-panel and it would burn down the panel. According to the electrician, not having a "disconnect" is the reason why the circuit is getting hot. The second electrician is saying that you should plug the wall charger in 220V outlet rather than connecting it directly to the breaker. The instructions that came with the wall charger and installation videos do not mention any "disconnect" or "the wall charger should be plugged into 220v outlet"!
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
