charging

I purchased a model 3 1 week ago. I am using the J1772 connector for home charging. When I plug the charger into the car, the green light goes on and charging starts but then it shuts off after 30-45 minutes, the green light goes out and no further charging occurs. If I either lock or unlock the car the green light goes back on and charging resumes, again for 30 minutes or so. The Tesla AP on my phone says charging is continuing but nothing seems to be happening. There is 264 miles of charge in the battery, but I would expect charging to progress to full charge before stopping. Not sure what's going on

What have you set as goal state of charge? The light on the charge port eventually goes out while it's charging, so you're probably mistaken. Shouldn't be too hard to tell that miles are being added.
