MAKE SURE WHERE YOUR DRIVE IS INSTALLED IS CLEAN AND DRY
This is especially important for drives with an IP00 or IP20 rating. Drives with these ratings are particularly exposed to contamination from dust. Too much dust can restrict airflow which in turn reduces performance of fans or heatsinks – this can eventually lead to the failure of your drive.
Keeping a drive with a low IP rating in a moist environment is also another sure fire way to lead to inverter failure. Moisture getting into the drive can cause a range of problems, most notably corrosion to the circuit board.
