First I would check your filters inside the furnace or air handler. Then if you have access I would check the a-coil. Sounds to me like you have a problem in the area of where the system transfers heat from the inside to the outside. Another thing that would'nt hurt would be to clean your condensing unit outside.

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!

My Trane TWE036C140B0 is not blowing cool air i have turned off the TSTAT and still not getting any cool air the outside fan is working and the lines are not frozen


Sounds like your compressor is not running check your run cap. Most tranes I work on has a start cap it will be a black color and the run will be a shiny silver. If you have a multimeter you can check the caps. You will need a meter that has micro Fards and the caps have the ratings written on them.

How to Clean 1984 TRANE Cooling VENTS inside house No Manuals


The Outdoor unit will be easy 1st diconeect power at panel, or disconnect box near unit. Remove top of unit, be careful not to damage fan blades. Spray coils (fins) with a light degreaser let is soak for 5 mins. wash out coils from inside the unit out. Spray straight on so you push the dirt out the other side.

Re assemble and start up.

Indoor coil will be accessed by removing front cover and you may have another cover to expose the inside of the coil fins. That is where you need to clean. Spray degreaser on coils and rinse off. If its gunked up then use a wire brush 1st. Carefull not to bend the fins over.

Check the drain pan at bottom of the coil to be sure it's not full of stuff. Blow out if needed.

You should be clean and ready for the season
