For the DIY test, you have to be very carefull since the VFD has to be discharged before doing any maintenance.

Wait untill the power bank drains all the power out, and then and only after that start measuring all the PCB and the IGBT's.

First to all check if the VFD works, it might be out.

Hope it helps.

There's a short in or on the way to the motor from the drive coverter.

You could do some basic trouble-shooting and might get lucky a find bad wiring.

Or maybe the motor is shot.

But if you're lucky, nothing is permanently damaged if you find a short and fix that.

Otherwise, yes, probably 'spensive.
