Just got my 2017 Volt a couple of days ago. It was a replacement for a 2013 Volt (which was a replacement for a 2012 Nissan LEAF).

I like the car, with one exception. Whenever it completes a charge or completes a cooling cycle on the battery, it faults my Schneider EVLink EV2430WS EVSE. I never saw this behavior with the 2013 Volt or the LEAF.

The EV2430WS is four years old, but I really don't want to spend money to replace it if there's a simple solution. Anyone else having EVSE faults with their 2016 or 2017 Volts?

I'm having no problems with the 220 PowerXpress I bought in 2012. If you have to replace your charger I think it is a good choice. This is the fourth Volt i've used it on and, though it was expensive, it is really heavy duty and has been trouble free.

Just another joy of having been an early adopter. I bought a finicky and expensive EVSE, which, now, after only four years, needs to be replaced.
You got 4x further down the road than I did. I bought the SPX/Bosch Voltec unit. It died 12 months and three weeks from install. Bosch said pound sand since I connected it to the 240V line instead of paying them $1500 to do it the warranty was limited to 12 months.

The best warranty you can get is 3 years no matter who makes it. And some are less than that.

I had the same EV2430WS purchased in 2011. There was a recall in 2012 for some models - the connector was heating up. Although my serial # was not supposed to have issues I contacted Schneider and they replaced it free of charge with the newer model EV230WS (and even sent me $50 gift card). I was pleased with their customer service. Your warranty may have expired, but I would recommend to discuss with Schneider what they could do to help. Good luck!
