Question and Answer
I see a red light flashing on my Trane furnace. What does that mean?
Your Trane furnace has a flashing light to tell you if your unit is functioning properly or not. A steady flash is normal and means the unit is working properly. A series of flashes and pauses is a code for something wrong with your furnace. A breakdown of the flashing codes and their meanings should be located on the inner front panel of your furnace. An error code is usually a problem which requires a qualified heat tech to repair.

If you have the part number, many Trane furnace transformers can be purchased from online HVAC suppliers. The cost of a transformer should be around $20. You could also contact a licensed heating tech who can make sure you get the correct transformer and install it for you.
My Trane XR80 furnace is blowing cool air

On page 8 of the owner’s manual there is a troubleshooting chart on common issues with the furnace. On the chart it states:
No Heat — Vent motor is running
Possible cause – Restricted or plugged furnace condensate drain
This is the solution they provide
- Remove drain clamps to condensate trap and drain pan outlet
- Flush or clean drain blockage
- Reinstall clamps
If you’re still having issues with the furnace or this is not the trouble you’re having, calling a licensed contractor would be a wise choice.

This furnace should be flashing an LED error code which can help you diagnose the problem. A few possible causes of a furnace blowing cold air are a dirty filter, a problem with the capacitor, a plugged air intake or a problem with the blower motor. Having a licensed tech troubleshoot and fix your furnace might be a good idea and help prevent further damage.
