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!

Thermostat Wiring and Terminal Designations


Here is a list of each common terminal and what their commonly used for. Also listed is what colors are commonly used. NEVER ASSUME these are what you have. Verify all your wires by following each to each piece of equipment. This will help you to be able to match your equipment with the terminal.

- R, Rc, Rh Red wire, hot side of transformer
- C various color wires Usually the common side of transformer
- Y Yellow wire, Energizes the compressor, cooling or heating and cooling for heat pumps
- W White wire, heating for most units
- G Green wire, energizes the fan or blower relay.
- O Orange wire, energizes cooling on most heat pump units
- B Blue and sometimes Orange wire, energizes heat on most heat pump units
- B or X Blue, Black, or Brown wire, the common side of the transformer when the t-stat needs a common. Some brands use B as the common (York, GE, and Trane)
- E Pink, Gray or Tan wires, Emergency heat relay on heat pumps with auxiliary heat
- T Tan or Gray wires, For units with outdoor anticipator reset control (Trane, American Standard, GE, and Carrier)
- W2 Pink, or Brown wires energizes second stage heating on 2 stage units
- Y2 Blue or Pink wires, energizes second stage cooling on 2 stage units
- L Can be most any color, energizes service indicator lamp on units that are equipped with that.

The wires that always cause the most confusion are the B and X wires.
Check out the B terminal first. The NEMA standard for the B terminal to be the heating changeover valve but with some units it is different.

Trane, GE, York and some other manufactures which includes older Honeywell thermostats often use it for the common side of the transformer.
“X” Usually is the standard for common, but just like “B” some manufactures do use “X” or “X2” as the terminal for the emergency heat relay.

My Trane thermostat (TCONT600AF11MAA) is supposed to have 1.5 degrees of heat pump "rest" above the desired setting before turning on the heat pump. The thermometer reading does not change yet...


Friend! All thermostat is calibrated to cut in and cut off at the end of - or + 1 degree end.
Example: If you set 23 degree, it will cut off in 21 degree and cut in @25 degree. So accordingly you set the temp.
Secondly, don't set temp near to your room temp.Minimum difference should be 3 degree. If your room temp 12 degree, set at least 15 degree for heat and if room temp 28, set at least 25 degree for cool.
Hope it's helpful?

Outdoor fan does not come on


most likely it the the cap that is bad. Is this in heating or cooling mode?

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.




If your control board is messed up, why aren't you replacing it?

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.

Being an electricain help if you want us to assist you in troubleshooting.

This link takes you to the TRANE contact page. They can answer any warranty/recall questions you have.
