    This indeed works or lowering the amps via dipswitches in your home charger. I went from 16 amps to 10 amps 3phase charging and that made charging quiet but also lenghtier. Awaiting a solution indeed

    Yup thats what I thought. People just respond but dont read

    Insane charging noise

    I will, along with thousands of Europeans, freak out if they dont solve this problem. You could have read on this thread that both FMC and Ford Netherlands told us theyre working on a fix. This should arrive aug/sept. And this has nothing to do with a function in the summer, i have charged it...

    Insane charging noise

    Thats all valid but as my GF drives a Leaf and so we sometimes need to charge fast in order to have both our cars fully charged for the next day, the faster 11kw, 16amps, 3phase charging is really necessary sometimes. But hey, both Ford and most Europeans acknowledge its a non-spec issue that...

    Insane charging noise

    It takes about 6.5 hours to fully charge the battery at 16 amps/ 3 phase. So thats 6.5 hours of noise that keeps the neighbors awake. Whats your point? The car should be able to handle this just like nissans, Renaults and teslas. As discussed in the previous 13 pages, this an BIG issue for...

    See the topic 'insane charging noise' in charging section. Ford already responded to this

    Insane charging noise

    No. The fact they dont mention anything sounds to me like they have no solid solution yet. Ford USA reacted in this thread saying it will likely come in the form of an OTA update. Dont think Im going to have a Dutch dealer fiddling around with me car just yet

    Insane charging noise

    Just got an official update from Ford Haarlem in the Netherlands: At Ford we are working hard for a solution regarding fan noise. There will probably be more clarity about this at the end of August, beginning of September. I would like to request that you also report this problem to the...

    Insane charging noise

    This wont work here in Europe. Most customers in europe using 16 amps/3 phase homechargers have this issue. If you would have read this thread you'd know. Dealers in europe dont know how to fix and Ford HQ has acknowledged the AC to DC converter cooler getting too hot. They are working on a fix...

    Thats a bugger indeed. You're not alone. Ford acknowledged the problem and is working on a solution. Likely and hopefully simply by an OTA update

    Insane charging noise

    Like Ford just officially commented in this thread: Hey Everyone, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are aware some customers are experiencing high fan speeds/noise during high power L2 charging. Know this is normal operation and perfectly safe. We are actively working to develop...

    Great! Would be good to hear your experience

    Dutch driver - first impressions

    The noise is probably down to the stiff suspension. Its quite stiff. It does not feel wrong but its just a subtle rumble in the chassis. Not constant but with small inaccuracies in the road, its makes a rumbling noise. After some days I dont notice is that much as I usually drive around 100...

    Insane charging noise

    Im no engineer. All ive understood sofar is that the cooling kicks in because the converter needs to make 3 phase 11kw 16 amperes from AC to DC. I was told that the cooling noise is no problem when charging by the highway since thats already DC. Yes, i managed to get the sound significantly down...

    Insane charging noise

    I think there definitely is something to fix. At the time of writing, I have spoken to another mach e owner in the Netherlands and he also tells me that is not possible to charge 3 phase 11Kw in a residential area. People might live spacious but I literally had a complaint of my neighbor that...

    Insane charging noise

    Thats strange indeed. Its a shame Im no technician. Just called the dealer and (of course) they say its comform spec but they agreed it is very loud. They said there is little they can do about it right now with the limited info they have from Ford on this issue. They are going to report to Ford...

    Insane charging noise

    Ok people. Update: Thanks so much for all your feedback. Really appreciated as you can imagine that in cases like these, you can get very depressed. So what I did was this. In the dipswitches of my 3 phase charging station I lowered the amperes from 16 to 10. Thats the lowest it can provide...

    Insane charging noise

    Wow this is really helpful! So its because I have AC inhouse and needs to be turned into DC it needs to cool the converter in the car. Thats not needed when connected to a public DC charger. But then the question remains: Of course Id like to charge at home with max power. Is this a nogo then...

    Insane charging noise

    Im not super technical, so by lowering ampere in my electrical system in my home , this should reduce the cooling need in the cars system, right? So this means also that when im charging at a fast charger next to the highway I have the same insane noise?
