Alarm 69 on a Danfoss VFD indicates a problem with the power card temperature. This means the temperature sensor on the power card has detected a value outside the safe operating range. It could be either too hot or too cold.

Here's a breakdown of the causes and troubleshooting steps for this alarm:


  • High Temperature:
  • The ambient temperature surrounding the VFD might be exceeding its specified limits.
  • Blocked air filters on the VFD can restrict airflow and cause overheating.
  • Internal malfunction within the power card itself is less likely but a possibility.
  • Low Temperature:
  • In rare cases, the ambient temperature might be too cold for the VFD to operate correctly.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check Ambient Temperature: Ensure the surrounding environment meets the recommended temperature range for your Danfoss VFD model. Refer to the user manual for specific values.
  2. Inspect Airflow: Clean any clogged air filters on the VFD to improve airflow and cooling.
  3. Power Cycle: Sometimes, a simple power cycle (turning the VFD off and on again) can help reset the alarm if it's a temporary glitch.
  4. Monitor Temperature: If the alarm persists, monitor the temperature readings displayed on the VFD (if available) to see if it remains outside the safe zone.
