Question about American Standard Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a small house with a outside package unit American standard (Trane) Model# WCM030F100BB, italso says BAYHTRN110A. When I select cold from the off position on the thermostat it immediately pops the breaker. It is heat pump equiped and if I select heat it also pops the breaker without hesitation. If I select emergency heat, then fqan to on from auto and then select heat with the top switch of the thermostat it heats the house fine using it`s electric strips. The manufacture date is 01/1996, Does it sound like the compressor is shot and is it worth it to replace the compressor? If not can you give me a ballpark cost on a new or used outside package similar to this one (cheapest I can get away with) I think 1 to 1-1/2 ton would do fine, Thank You, Jeff.

I would check the outdoor unit, Trane uses "Sump Heaters" on their compressors
and when one fails it will blow fuses at the disconnect or trip breakers.
The sump heater is a small metal pencil sized item at the bottom of the compressor
with something that looks like lamp cord going to it. Also when the start capacitor
fails it will exhibit this symptom. Look at the can shaped items inside the cover
If they are leaking, or bulged this may also be the problem.
(with the breakers off to everything including the inside unit to prevent shorting
the transformer)
These are the most common problems and the parts are less than 20 dollars each.
I service 155 trane units at my properties.
hope this helps.

I have a American standard ac model 7A0018-60A100A and would like to know the model no. of the condenser fan motor so I can replace it


All you need to know is that it is a 1/4 hp, 825 rpm. 1/2 inch shaft. That is if you are going to buy an after market motor. I have had to make new mounting holes when using after market motors on trane systems (just the way trane is) but not a problem. If you're getting it from trane you would only need the model number of the condenser.

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!

When I turn my electric a/c to heater it makes a repeat tac sound quite loud. An a/c tech opened the metal box on left side where the fuse is located and said that the board and relay needs to be replaced....


It sounds like the tech was referring to the blower relay. The blower relay on this unit originally had a small circuit board mounted to it. It's only purpose was to allow for delay off-time of the blower at shutdown. In other words, once the command for the blower was de-energized, the blower would continue to run for approx 90 secs. This is something that is optional. It does slightly enhance the operation of the air handler; however, it is not something that is absolutely necessary. It is possible to replace the relay with a standard type blower relay; however, it will require it small bit of re-wiring. Your service tech should be able to help you. I would recommend that you use the service tech. This will prevent possible mis-wiring which could damage your blower motor (very costly) and most service companies offer a 1 year warranty on the parts. However, if you are going to try to do this yourself, the part can be obtained from Grainger or an Air Conditioning Supply House for approx $20.00. The blower relay is a 90-340. If you purchase it from a contractor, it will be approx double.......every business marks up their product, it's how they make money.
I'm attaching a link to a site that has the specs and a wiring diagram for your air handler.
I hope you find all this information helpful and I wish you luck in your endeavor. :-)

American Standard and Trane are the same thing. The diagram you want is not complicated at all. Just straight cool unit. American Standard does not put low or high pressure controls on unit. You can get diagram on line At American Standard.com. Just what do you need to know? Very basic unit.
