"Trane XR80 is Crap"
After two years in service, the circuit board and transformer failed on my Trane xr80 and thus needed to be replaced. Although under warranty, it still cost me $350 of labor and warranty service fees from an authorized Trane dealer (highway robbery at its best). My other unit is a Carrier--it's been in service for 13 years--with no major service required. The TRANE XR80 is a piece of crap!

"I Hate This Furnace"
The Trane xr 80 is a complete piece of sh**. Every single year, I have to get something fixed on this thing. I change filters every 30 days, clean the flame sensor every year and maintain it as well as can be expected but every year since it was new something goes wrong and leaves me without heat. Right now for some reason, it has blown the original transformer and 3 weeks later has now blown the second one. Why? Who knows, I will never buy another Trane product, complete and utter garbage. I wish I had got a 300 dollar Janitrol instead, so at least when it started acting up I could blame it on being cheap. STAY away from Trane!

"New Trane Furnace/Humidifier will not work"
I have a new Trane xr-80 gas Furnace and Humidifier installed July '08. Did not turn on until October. The thermostat is set on #5, which should provide 45% humidity. It will not go above 30%. The dealer's service Tecs have been here three times. The last time the rewired the Humidifier so that it would run when the fan only was on and advised to run continuously. I ran for 12 hours and the drain line was outputting 4 gallons per hour, the humidity remained at 30%.The tech verified that my humidity gauge was correct!
