SOURCE: central heat not blowing warm air

Do you know if your unit is a heat pump or not? Sounds like it may be an electrical problem and yes you would need to call a service tech.

SOURCE: A/C coolant requirements, replacing both units

Yes and no. The government isn't requiring you to replace the unit with a more efficient unit. They requiring that A/C manufactures produce units at least 13 seer or above so A/C installers will not be able to get a unit to match your old units after all stock is sold about. This will happen in the next year or so. If you try and replace your old inside or outside unit with a newer 13 seer they are not compatible and it will not work very good. It may even burn the old or new unit out and cost you even more $$$$$$$ in the long run. The one you have now is probably about 10 or 12 seer since it was installed in 2001. The old equipment is still available to match yours, you just need to find somebody that is able to get it for you before all old equipment is sold out. Some of the large cities like Dallas Fort Worth areas of Texas are almost sold out of older equipment that is needed to match yours. But the equipment is still around if you check smaller populated areas or check Ebay for a 10 or 12 seer unit to match yours. Some A/C companies will not install the older equipment at all even if it's available. You are better going with a new inside and outside unit 13 seer or above to be safe. Also R-22 refrigerent will be phased out soon so you need to go with a system that uses R-410A to be even safer. Even if the new unit is 13 seer make sure it uses 410A refrigerent. They are still making the newer 13 seer and above units using R-22 refrigerent. 410A should be around for another 100 years or more. Trane is good equipment. So is Carrier, Reem, and Ruud equipment. If you take an A/C unit apart you will find they are all made of just about the same exact parts from the same manufacturer (and Made in Mexico) so don't be fooled into spending $1,000 more on a unit just because of the name but only if it's more effeicient. By buying a unit 13 or higher (14,15,16,17,18) you are sure to save on your electric bill compared to the older units before 2006. Another thing to take into consideration is that the larger copper tubing that connects your outside unit to the inside needs to be larger (at least 1 inch) or you will not get the energy savings on the newer units. So you will need to change the larger copper tubing out if it's not bigger then 1. The smaller tubing needs to be at least 3/8". Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Trane XE 1200 ac The outside fan stopped

unless you have a meter youneed to see if the unit is asking the fan to turn on. if so the fan (which i doubt) maybe gone bad or the starting capasitor for the fan... is there anyway of checking the voltage to the fan

SOURCE: 2002 TRANE XE 1000 AC - small leak

It depends on if you are sticking with Trane.... Every 4 days is not a small leak; it is at the least a moderate leak. If they cannot repair the leak (they should), I would ask if the new air handler is compatable with the newer system. If yes, I would consider it, especially due to the age of the unit. I would also get at least one other estimate from another dealer. It sounds like you are getting pressured to buy as opposed to repair. We have Carrier inside and Trane outside and it works just fine.
I Hope that this was of value to you.

SOURCE: Trane XE1200 Fan Motor

Most likely problem with a not-so-old motor is the run capacitor for the fan.

Some units have fan & compressor capacitor combined into one -- others are separate.

The capacitor can be tested with a multi-meter with an MFD setting -- it should read reasonably close to the specs marked on the capacitor.

I have a trane xe 800 its blowing air but not cold air, i felt the copper/bronze tube running into the unit it is luke warm also no chill at all. where should i start checking to get my house cold again.

Hello, if the pipe with insulation is luke warm then either the unit is empty of refrigerant due to leak or the compressor is not running at all. Start by going tje the outdoor unitnand checking if the compressor is running, if it is then the unit has no refrigerant, if the compressor is not running then either a bad capaitor orbthe compressor itself might be bad.

Trane xe 1000 - 1/4 fan motor went bad - I replaced it with a used 1/3 from another trane unit - it had same wiring harness etc everything starts, runs, cools -cold air - but only for about 5...

Did the 2 fans have the same rpm. If there is not enough airflow through the outside unit the compressor will shutdown on high discharge pressure. Also make sure the fan blades are positioned right if there is a shroud for them. Did the other motor have a capacitor with it or did you use the 1 from the smaller motor. Sometimes the motor data plate will tell you what size capacitor you need. Let me know what you find.

I have a Trane XE 1100 Heat Pump. It is not cooling. My air handler blower works. The outside fan does not. I changed out both capacitors. When you turn unit on you can hear the relay activate. Then only a...

Probablly the fan. Do this test. Move the fan side to side. and up and down. Any more than 1000ths inch play and that motor is bad. When the bearing gets thin the rotor will rub the stator and lock up. This is called polling out. If the motor is stiff you can oil it with an HVAC approved oil called Zoomspout oil from ace hardware store. Zoomspout oil is non flammable temp resitant and is slow to disipate.
