F13 Code Help – External Overload Trip

F13 (All Drives): Overload

Code Meaning: The overload device has tripped disconnecting the ST terminal from the common of the control voltage. If no overload device is used in your application, it is necessary to install a jumper connecting the COM terminal to the ST terminal.

Further Information/Troubleshooting Tips:

Cause: The overload device has tripped. Solution: Investigate why overload tripped and correct problem. Reset the overload, if it doesn’t reset automatically, and reset the drive to clear the F13 code. The drive will continue to display F13 until the overload device has been reset and a connection from ST to the common is re-established.
