Question

Trane XE1200 crankcase heater


Does anyone have a good source for finding parts? I have a Trane XE1200 with a blown crankcase heater. I can't find a parts list for my unit aside from the schematics, which I already have.

Thanks.

Do you actually need the heater? I mean, do you live up north where it's sub zero in the winter?

Down here we simply remove them altogether.

I'm going to bypass it for now. But I just don't want to leave it like that if I can find one inexpensive. I may want to put in a heat pump and don't want this to hold me back.

Don't bypass it, completely remove it from circuit. Turn the power to the condenser/heat pump by way of breaker, remove the lid and trace back the heater wires to the the contactor. You may not need to even remove the lid if you can see from the top and identify through the service panels which wires they are. Three minutes and its done.

Those things sit in dirt and water on the very bottom and corrode, eventually breaking and since they are on the high voltage side they trip the breaker when they break.

They are inexpensive to replace. Your neighbor's heat pump probably has one.

Just kidding, don't do that.

post a full model number for the unit and I can find you a part number. FYI, if they are rusted in they can be a pain to get out and some you can't get out and have to use a bellyband as a replacement.

hvactech126,

Thanks. The Model number is TTP018C100A2. As far as the difficult to remove alert, so I've heard. I haven't tried to remove it yet so I don't know the condition. Thanks for the warning.

Why are you wanting to remove it in the first place?

Because I want to replace it. If I need the bellyband style heater then so be it.

Oh for God's sake,there is a differance between being frugal and just being cheap.
Any Trane or American Standard dealer can get you the correct crankcase heater.Its not that expensive .Why reinvent the wheel???

And the OEM heater is so much easier to put in then a belly band.

Slow down and read the earlier posts. I never asked for a bellyband. It was suggested in case I can't remove the correct part. My initial question was where can I find the part I need, which equates to not being cheap by the way.

My response was to the post that suggested a belly band.

The part is available from Trane/American Standard dealers, and distributors. And several online HVAC parts suppliers. Just type "Trane crank case heater" into your search bar. Pick the plce that ships faster.
