    Buying NEW VFD for 2.2KW Spindle (OLD VFD died)

    Ok, this morning my VFD died. YL600-2s-2k20 for 2.2KW spindle. This was bought from a company that said it was able to use 110V. No smoke, no pop, just the slow winding down of the spindle. The display on the VFD had something on it (CN????) but before I could read it, the display went off. Powering off/on did nothing. Connections look good. Power is there. One tiny LED D12 is on, that is all.

    I've had the VFD for about two years.

    So, that brings me to now. I'm looking at some VFDs on Amazon and am looking at 220v models such as:(VFD 220V 3.0KW 4hp Variable Frequency Drive CNC VFD Motor Drive Inverter Converter for Spindle Motor Speed Control HUANYANG HY-Series(3KW, 220V))

    or should I step up to the 4.0KW 5.5 HP?

    Any suggestions?
    If you have a similar setup, I'd like to hear from you as well.
    Thanks!

    Why where you using 120v it's not the voltage that normally kills a VFD it have the wrong Parameters set that does them some serious damage

    You have to know the spec's for the VFD model there are some that can run on 120v but those that are any good for a 2.2Kw spindle will be 220v/240v

    3kw would be good for the 2.2Kw spindle

    Thank you for the quick response.

    Well, at the time I didn't have a 220v outlet in the shop and since the company I bought my spindle from had a 110v VFD controller for a 2.2KW spindle I went that route. They also posted the parameters that need to be set in order to use the VFD with that spindle.
    Can we post links on the forum?
    Again, thanks.

    I'm thinking about that 220v VFD, then I would need a 220v spindle?

    That is a low cost VFD and will work very well, a word of caution the wiring has to be correct,and Parameters have to be set correct or the same thing can happen

    What is wrong with the spindle you have, just test the UVW and Ground pin to see if it is ok

    Pin1 to Pin2=
    Pin2 to Pin3=
    Pin3 to Pin1=

    And Pin 4 to the Spindle Body most are not connected and this will have to be corrected like photo
