Trane xr13 please help!


I have a Trane XR13 that is not blowing cold air out the vents. The air is ambient and does not change no matter how cold i set the thermostate.
I went outside to inspect the unit and found the fan blower is on. I felt
the pipe that is covered with insulation and it was not cold at all. Could
it be that big ass capacitor? Im going to get a meter and check it if that
could be the issue. How about the relay? Please help. Im trying to save
some money. Kiss and Motely Crue are coming to town and I already blew
400 on that. Going to hit the peace pipe and chill for now....way to much
drama this mornign

Dude....the relay works since the fan is on...it's the big ass capacitor or compressor or something in between. Like I told a customer last week...."No your compressor is alright....but IF you would have kept resetting the breaker-that might not have been the case-good thing you called me"

myself which surprised me. Bummer though...I gotta wait til
Monday when the local shops open to get one. Peace out...
