its hard to stop a Trane.......

Purchased a new Trane heater/AC unit for my house last Oct.

The night before last I heard the compressor cycling. It would run for about 45 seconds, then shut off for approx a minute, then run again. Usually I would hear it kick on with the fan and thats it.

Got up last night around 10 because I heard the fan running, checked the thermostat and it was kicked in to the "aux heat" mode, no compressor running at all now.



I bought the unit hoping if I bought a decent one I wouldnt have to deal with this crap for quite a while.

Luckily it has a 1 year warranty through the company that installed it, and 3 from the factory I believe.

At this rate I should have just bought some el cheapo no name special like my friend and saved some money. He is going on 6 years without a single issue.

I hope you have more then 3yr from the factory. Carrier is 5yr parts for residential apps at the minimum. Payne (Carrier's budget brand) is 10yrs parts to the original owner.

.
Sounds like when the defrost board went on mine. It would cycle like that and but not go back to heat.

It could be more, I honestly dont remember. I think it to goes 10 years on parts, and a more inclusive 3 year, will have to check my paperwork.

sounds like its cycling on a low pressure or high pressure limit. i work for a trane dealer and normally the warranty is 5 year standard ten year optional.

Probably low on gas causing it short cycle, alot of times they get leaks in shipping.
