I have a customer that bought a Trane heat pump and had it installed by
"Billy-Joe-Jim-Bob". I am not a Trane guy, so I don't understand all I know
about them. I have it working with one exception... Here's the info then the
XL1400 heat pump
The control wires were not connected correctly, and I have the basics
correct for 24v, contactor, common, and RV, The problem lies with 3
wires...... brown, black, and red w/white stripe.
Here's the question....
Which one of those 3 wires energize the air handler heat strips so it
doesn't blow snowballs in defrost??
The books and paperwork that the owner has are not real specific.
Any help please??

As you would say:
"Just find a *COMPETENT* tech to do it.....and this doesn't necessarely
it has to be a Trane dealer."
"Too bad I can't *SEE* it through the computer... that might make it a
easier to diagnose. Other than that, my crystal ball is frosted over
its so damn cold outside.......but my home is nice and comfy :-)"
"What did your favorite, local, *COMPETENT*, licensed, professionally
trained, HVAC technician say??"
"Maybe you should call a tech before your cause any more problems with
"You are clearly over your head on this one, let the contractor do it."
"Its broken, call a tech."
"Time to call your favorite local competent, licensed, insured,
professionally trained, HVAC tech to diagnose and correctly repair the
"Call a tech before you let the smoke out of anything else."
Steve, you're a regular on the group. I'd tell you anything I knew
about heating. Not that you'd need it, cause you're already a pro.
That said, I've never worked on Trane, and only dissembled and taken
out heat pumps. Wish I was more help.
