An F0023 fault in a Siemens drive signifies an output fault. This indicates an issue with the connection between the drive and the motor. Here's a breakdown of the fault and steps to troubleshoot it:


  • The most common cause is a problem with the motor cable or its connection. This could be:
  • Disconnected cable: One or more phases of the motor cable might be disconnected from the drive or motor terminals.
  • Damaged cable: The motor cable might have physical damage causing internal short circuits or interrupting current flow.
  • Loose connections: Loose terminals at either end of the motor cable can create intermittent connection issues.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Safety First: Ensure the system is completely powered down and locked out before attempting any troubleshooting procedures.
  2. Check Cable Connections: Physically inspect the motor cable for any visible damage like cuts or abrasions. Tighten all connections at both the drive and motor terminals to ensure a secure fit.
  3. Motor Test (Optional): If possible, disconnect the motor from the drive and see if the fault persists. This helps isolate the fault to the motor cable or the motor itself.
  4. Drive Parameters (Less Likely): In rare cases, specific drive parameters might contribute to the F0023 fault. However, this is less likely. Consult the Siemens manual for your specific drive model to see if there are any relevant parameters..
