Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I currently have dual split units (Trane XL80 & XR13) heating and cooling the house. One of the XR13's is not working properly. This is what I observe. The XR13 in question is running --the fan is running-- but, I am not getting any air flow from the registers. The XL80 that it is mated to is in the attic; I noticed that there is a blinking red light that is visible through a small clear porthole on the side of the furnace. \r\n Regards, Ralph in Bellflower, CA.

Hi,
Check how many times the light is blinking... it will flash a series of blinks and then pause...and flash the series again...

Then remove the cover nad insdie it will tell you how to interpet the blinks and then you will know why it is kicked off...

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!

Had 16 xi Trane heat pump installed 3 years ago. It ran well for the first couple of years. It began to stop heating and would blow cold air only. Have tried both aux heat and reg. heat to run and neither...


That's a complicated system that needs a qualified technician to service it. Lots of people can install them and they run fine, for a few years. Your indoor unit, operating on 2 heat elements, will feel like its blowing cold air even though its heating, just not so well. And not like you are accustomed to. Each element (5kw)=22.7amps, on average. So 3 elements operating should trip a breaker. Its probably been operating on 2 heat element plus the heat pump. And now you have trouble with the heat pump. If you can't TRUST the guys working on your equipment, try someone else. A second opinion. Normally a 3 or 4 ton unit will have 15kw heat installed, heatpump or not. 5 ton, 20kw. If yours is a 3-4ton, cooling, the 100amp(or normally two 60 amp) breaker should have been installed upon equipment change out. If yours is blowing cold all the time, something is wrong with your heatpump. The electric heat inside operates only when the heatpump can't keep up(real cold outside), the heatpump is in defrost(then it's actually in cooling mode), or if you have the tstat in aux/em. heat. Try a local trane dealer? Of a technician with 15-20 yrs under their belt. A trane dealer should have trane tech support also. BIG HELP!!!

I have a trane XR12 Heat Pump. The cooling fan on the outdoor unit does not run nor does the compressor. The fan motor heats up and hums. I am guessing that the problem is the start capacitor on the fan...


Hello Rich,NO you have a dual capasitor that runs both fan & compressor motors.Shut it down and let it cool off.You need the uf rate numbers & the volt rating of the existing cap (printed on the side)to get EXACT replacement.The wires plug in to the top termanls C, HERM &FAN.Worth fixing good luck.
