I have a generation 2 wall connector, with the 24' cable, mounted on the west side of my house in Ontario, Canada. We have had extremely cold weather for ~ a week and I'm sure with windchill we were colder than -30C at times. My Model S failed to charge multiple times and I got error messages ranging from ground fault, charge cable fault, no wall power, check power source. The car would start to charge with the green light scrolling and then a blinking red light or no light. The trouble shooting of resetting and flipping the breaker did not work. Luckily I have been able to use Superchargers in the meantime.
I have spoken to Tesla support (a mobile unit team will be contacting me within the next 4 days) and my Tesla approved electrician that did the install. Since then, we have warmed up and the charger seems to be working again.
Has anyone else had issues during a deep freeze with their charger not working?
Has anyone designed a cabinet/enclosure for their charger (other than a garage)?
Can anyone recommend a contractor for building an enclosure or garage??
