So Pbaker on TMC just posted this - https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/malfunctioning-supercharger-stalls.136171/#post-3223730

Here it is copied and pasted:

"Can this be the new way we identify a malfunctioning supercharger stall??
It is painful watching so many drivers continue to try to use the one that’s not working, and sometimes losing their place in line... "

I agreed and said I'd spread the word...

However, STEP 1 is to call and work with Tesla Supercharger to make sure that the stall is out of service, so call for help, then if Tesla says it's bad, do this... (Phone number is usually on the supercharger head unit, if not email - CustomerSupport@tesla.com )

STEP 2 will then be to do this...

I like this because it's clean, keeps the cable off the ground and away from any further physical damage and obvious.

Like I said, first VERIFY with Tesla that a stall is misbehaving before doing this to the stall.

What do you think?

Would this be for chargers that are charging well below 120 kW or only chargers that do not work at all?
