I aiready have. there were 3 like that on the same roof top. They are all facing the sea about 40yrds from the beach. there are servral sky lights up there to i have to clean them every week. in the winter the wind and the rain hammer across that roof top and in high winds you can feel the salt spray frrom the sea.

That is one of the main issues with these types of systems for cleaners as they can soon become a high risk when they start to fail.

Hi Andy.

 

I can't say you are wrong, but it looks like a conservatory roof panel to me. It certainly is not like any solar panel I've seen. I've never seen one with a white surround or with that kind of seal or type of assembly.

 

Also, panels don't hum, even when faulty. There nothing in a solar panel that would cause it to hum.

 

Whether it is or it isn't a panel is kind of irrelevant anyway. You don't know 100% how to deal with the problem, so you would be wise to leave the whole thing alone. I wouldn't do any further cleaning there at all until it was discovered what was wrong with 'the solar panel'.
