Question about Heat Controller Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Heating not working like it should

I have a trane thur wall unit in one of my rentals. It is a year old and was removed from a hilton hotel. I had it put in its nice and level so I think. I had an electrition put a new plug on the end of it and new wall plug to match it up. Heater call for 20 amp and we have a 20 amp breaker. The 220 was already there for air conditioner. Electrition check it is drawing what it should. The unit when turned on will come on you can feel heat coming out just a bit, and thats on high. The fan does not come on when on heat mode. When turned to cold air unit kicks on harder then it does on heat, and the fan starts to turn. The air does blow and works. I'm not sure if it is working as it should though it does blow harder then when it is on heat. Please if you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks Tim

The fan for the A/C should blow harder than in heat. The fan should be on high for cool and low for heat. You can change the heat setting for medium but I would not recommend it because it may make heat coming out feel less.

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

I have a 20 year old Trane heat pump. Outside


Yes, you will want to put the unit into cooling mode to help assistance with the ice melt.

If you can, block off the outdoor coil or disconnect the outdoor fan motor. This will assist in raising the discharge pressure and temperature and thus, it will melt the ice quicker.


Or, if you have the capability, you can take a garden hose around to the unit hooked into hot water and melt the ice that way.

I had installed after torgue converter problems a rebuilt tranny.


You will need to read the warrany agreement for all of that info, but I can tell you they NEVER pay for rentals, hotels, ect. I dont know why it was 8 days? Is this a FORD Remanufactured trans, or one that the Ford dealer rebuilt? If it was Ford Reman, I would think they could get you one in 1 or 2 days, and a couple hours to replace it, no big deal.

No heating, cooling or fan.


I'm confused. You have a Trane, but are asking about the Goodman warranty. I missed something there I'm sure, sorry.

"IF" Trane has a recall or warranty issue, then any qualified technician should be able to help you with that. The parts would be provided by trane in such an event, but unless the unit is less than 1 year old, chances are you will have to pay for the labor.

Electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off


There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.

Home heating system question


Hello meglong what type of trane model is it? In the service package that was offered to you was one removing the exhaust fan for cleaning and a minor tune up every year? Because normaly the exhuast fans can be cleaned just by blowing out the fan with some air or even a vaccum cleaner.

You need to replace your control board, but if you are can repair it by your self you can change the relay that supply the fan and condenser.
