Heater trane xe 90 working iregular, set to 70 heats up to 64

The burner ignites and then it goes out when the fan comes on. i have already cleaned the flame sensor and replaced the thermostat.  I noticed the small blower motor is on all day and when the burners come on there is a red light that comes on on the ctrl. panel. do i still need to replace the flame sensor?  thank you for your help.

Possible problemis due to a thermo-couple that has seen better times. If I understand your system correct I would check that.

Trane xe 90 burner wont light

Bad igniter? Could be a safety control telling the furnace not to light. Check to see if the furnace has a diagnostic indicator. If so count the flashes and then check the diagnostics list inside the door or in the owners manual. This should narrow the problem down.

Trane xe 70 cycles through the gas release cycle but fails to ignite the burners, upon inspection it appears that the igniter isnt glowing

Either the circuit to the electronic ignitor is bad or the ignitor (electrode) itself has failed. Either are not difficult to replace, but you will need a circuit tester to troubleshoot which part(s) needs replacing.

Check to see if you get 24 volts AC at the gas valve from the circuit board when the igniter is glowing. If yes, bad gas valve or blockage in gas train. If no, bad circuit board or broken wire

Gas heater won't ignite

I agree. Either the pilot flame is dirty and is not making good contact to heat up the bi metal strip on the pilot assembly, or the pilot assembly is defective. 90% of the time if you clean the pilot orfice and the pilot burner it will take care of the problem

Question on a day and night gas forced air heater

it very well sounds like your fan switch , does your fan work at all, like in ac mode on by turning the fan on/auto switch on the thermostat to ON. If the fan does come on its the more and likely the limit switch. if it doesnt come on it could be the motor or the run capacitor. the limit switch has a dial on it that as it heats up it spins clicking on at a desired set temp ussually about 120 to 150 degrees F. turning on the fan if the fan doen't come in the the next setting clicks off the gas valve turning off the burners ussually set at about 220 degrees F. now if the fan is working when the heater is satisfied there is a setting at about 90 deegrees F. that shuts the fan off hope this helps
