I had my original Voltec level 2 charger rebuilt by Radwell International Inc. Willingboro, N.J. Price was about 300.00 with a 3 year guarantee. Great company to work with! My charger was purchased in 2011.

Was that to replace the fuses, or did they replace the whole controller board with something else? That seems a little steep.
My Voltec level 2 charger went Tango Uniform 3 days ago.
Figured it be easy enough to change the fuses, $4 and you are done.
Fuses were good, checked and double checked.
Found a tiny little burn mark next to diode looking piece on the mother board.
Called GM and asked if they would stand behind it, on my 3rd Volt, loyal customer, blah blah..
About to throw away the Voltec charger, then I saw this thread.
What is the best deal on a Clipper Creek these days?
(Have not even started to check prices yet.)
My buddy is getting read of his Volt and said I can have his Stage 2 charger.
Still tempting to rebuild the Voltec, hate to throw away a $500 charger if it can be fixed.
Will hold on to it for now I guess. Perhaps even remove the motherboard and look at the other side., perhaps the burned out peiece can be replaced for $10?
The board can be replaced with an OpenEVSE unit. You'll need to buy the relay, though since Lear puts them directly on the board. You can still use the case and the output cord, which will save a bit.
