The breaker may need replaced, I would start there first. I am assuming that it has a dedicated line (meaning only the heat pump is off that circuit), if not then it will need to be wired that way...Good Luck Tim

I have a trane xl 1200 heat pump. It only heats after I trip the breaker. When it reaches desired temperature and cuts off. It doesn't heat again. Everything cuts on like it should, just no heat.


Maybe the breaker is opening prematurely. Over time breakers can and do go bad this way. Also check for power consumption of compressor to see if it is within specs.

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 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...


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.

200AMP Breaker trips same time every night


Something doesn't sound right here. You indicate 2 200Amp breakers. With a single service entering the house, this is not possible. The "sub-panel" to the pool house is more likely a 100Amp setup, yes? If not, you have a bad setup and it should be corrected. I would suspect that you are attempting to pull too much current to the pool and that is what is tripping the breaker. Also, these breakers should not be run over about 80% of their capacity for the long haul. If they are, they tend to age and get either real sensitive causing tripping when it shouldn't or you can run 500Amps through it and it won't trip.

My suggestion is to revisit the setup. If the pool house is fed from the main panel, make sure that the breaker for it is not 200Amp. Second, try disabling the pool house breaker to see if that is the source of the problem and look more closely there.

Keep us posted.

Heat pump trips circuit breaker


I seem to have the same problem. But when I reset the breakers, they won't stay in the on position. They go back to the off position. What gives? It is 95F inside the house.
