Newbie has issues with Trane XE80


Thanks a lot for your vote of confidence Ben. I am planning to call a pro out on Monday so I can see what they say before I run this unit full time. I meant what I said earlier I would not have gotten this far without you guys and I certainly appreciate what you all have done for me.

Thanks A Lot
Cary Hayes

Newbie has issues with Trane XE80


The inducer did work when I lit it up. I believe that everything is working as it should be. I am not very experienced with what a normal heat cycle is like with one of these units.

So far I have only ran this unit for one complete heat cycle and I observed the following. The inducer powered up first running in its own briefly, something then began to glow near where the burners are, the burners lit and heated the heat chamber for a little bit before the blower motor came on.

During the power off process I did not pay as much attention as I did with the startup process, but I think the inducer shut down prior to the burner turning off. Not sure if this is normal or not??? I did notice when the burner shut down the blower still ran for a minute our two.

Can you guys tell me if what I am experiencing here is normal our not with regard too a typical heat cycle?

Hey Harleyrider, don't know what your problem is but you need to figure it out and deal with it instead of being ignorant with everyone that is just asking for help. That is what this forum is all about, you think you know eveything and news flash YOU DON'T, yea I may be simple in my words on here but I am a HVAC tech. and I do know what I am doing sometimes it is better to start with the most simple and work to the most difficult and to put in the way they can understand it. Your words can build one up or tear one down your choice.

I don't really care what you think of me....well I do, but I hate redundancy. If someone clearly describes a problem and the problem is evident from that explanation then why lead a person with limited knowledge down a long as confusing path?

if you turn on a light switch and the light does not come on, do you remove the cover from the electrical panel and inspect the breaker.......or do you swap out a light bulb?

Harley, everyone will not think the same or be on your train of thought so unless your goal is complete world domination you need to let people be. Please just try and not fight or pick at people. The only one who ends up looking small is you.

Hey Harley, In my opinion and from the standpoint of a Newbie any information provided no matter how redundant it may be is much appreciated and valuable to someone like myself who has no knowledge of HVAC. I would like to think that most of the people who are DIY'ers and posting on here have a least some bacis knowledge of how things work and I would hope they know their way around a toolbox.

For instance I have no knowledge of construction, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc..., however I have managed to completely gut and rebuild a 2500 sqft. home. I was able to do this with the help of people like yourselves, who are kind enough to lend some of their knowledge to the less fortunate like myself. I was also able to dothis because I believe that I know generally how things work and are supposed to be done, but believe when I came to a point where I did not know I would always consult with more knowledgable individuals such as yourselves.

Just like with this post several people responded to my original post and the responses varied some so I read everything decided what I could do within the scope of my abilities and got to work teching out the problem and finding a solution.

At the end of the day, redundant or not, all information above what a person already knows, should be consideered as valuable.

Thanks again for everything guys, I am sure I will be calling on you again in a few months when it comes time to install the airconditioning portion of my used HVAC equipment and I hope that it goes as smoothly as this job did.

Thanks
Cary
