My house was affected during a thunderstorm about a Saturday ago. The good news was non major damage was sustained to both human and appliances. Bad news was the lightning attack knocked out the temperature sensor circuit of my inverter. At first I did not notice anything was amiss. The inverter was working fine and there was no obvious issue.
A day later I noticed the inverter was awfully quite and on further investigation I saw that the temperature indicator on the inverter lcd (which displays the temperature of the inverter heat sink) was displaying 0. This raised a red flag and I knew something was wrong. When started the inverter fan comes on for some seconds and then goes off and would not come on again even when the inverter is physically hot.
