We had a new Trane XL15i AC and Gas Furnace (not sure of
the model, but it is not two stage) in May. This is the first time
to use the heater and nothing happens. The AC worked fine, but
when I went to switch to heat I got nothing. I tried turning the
fan to manual/on but it did not make the normal noise that I recall
the fan making (first sign of a problem). I did not see any indication
that the squirrel cage blower is turning on. Gas is on. Tried resetting
the furnace power, no change. The red led on the furnace is blinking
2x, but I am not sure what that means. I've already called the service
but it will be a day or two and as far as we can tell, the heater hasn't
worked at all while we were gone (5d) b/c the house is very cold.

It is blinking 2x and that means "external lockout". I am going to guess
that it means it was unable to ignite the gas and so it has disabled itself.
But somebody with more knowledge can chime in. But that does not
sound as if it is simple. I did check some other appliances and the gas
is working to the rest of the house. Since the valve is open at the
I assume it is getting there as well.
Ohhh, so if the pvc intake is clogged with marbles, a bird, pea
gravel, a golf ball, an egg, leaves etc or some other silly problem
like that ..........it should be a warranty repair?
Hell, maybe the gas valve or gas cock is still turned off? Maybe it
has air in the line and was never bled?
Maybe the pressure switch is stuck like a lot of them do on first
Either that or 100 other ideas.
