The Trane XB10 is a discontinued, split-system air conditioner offering up to 10 SEER. Also known by its model number 2TTB0, this air conditioner model uses R-22 refrigerant and in 2002 was manufactured in eight models ranging from 2 ½ to 5 ton units.
Standing at 26 inches tall and 29 inches deep, the XB10 is promoted by the manufacturer for its durable, long-lasting construction. Full side louvered panels finished with baked-on powder paint, a non-corrosive base pan, and corrosion-resistant fasteners were designed to help protect the unit's exterior and interior components from extreme weather conditions.
Additional features of this model include soft operation with noise levels of 78 decibels, a Climatuff compressor designed for efficient operation, spine fin outdoor coil and woven spine fin coil.

"Never a Train Again"
This unit Trane 2TTB0048A1 was only 8 years old. Was serviced 3 times. It was loud. I think a 4 ton unit compressor should have lasted longer, switching to a Heil. Hope it lasts longer.

"How to stop a Trane, install it."
Due to manufacturing problems, two copper pipes where left touching each other. One pipe rubbed the other creating a hole and empting the system, $350. I called Trane and was told that due to the age the warrente had expired and the installer should have cought the problem so they could do nothing. On top of that the orifice that injects the freon into the unit was to small for the unit. I would never purchase a Trane again.
Other XB10 Reviews
Reviews around the web indicate that the XB10 was Trane's low-tier product line. Contractors on gardenweb.com recommend the unit sparingly, and suggest buying a new cooling unit over completing a costly repair for an old XB10.
In addition, Trane's comment page on the consumer forum measureup.com reflects several consumer issues with the company and its cooling units. Frequent system breakdowns, costly labor and parts, a lack of warranty coverage, and poor customer service are among the complaints.
Troubleshooting issues specific to the XB10 include failing components, such as a rusted evaporator coil and broken circuit boards, and inconsistent cooling performance from the unit.
