Hello, this is what I have on that system Click here

we can use it as a reference if the diagrams on page 14 and 15 match your units.

If these units are wired together, as shown on page 13, it may be a bad smoke detector in the supply or return as shown.... check each with an ohm meter until you find 3 of them reading the same resistance, in that case it will be the 4th thats bad if it reads differently.

Dust could have accumulated in the units when they were shut down for so long, and that could be what it setting off one of the smoke detectors.

Thanks Phil, very nice to see you still pursue new stuff. You were very helpful.
I guess i was screwed by two threads and was chating on other one. Below was that.
if you can give any more clue great, payment is not an issue.
We know basic unit works burner fan etc, control not good. I did not see any extrnal sensors hooked up except smoke detector..
At present I like to get a parts manual, and a recommendation nearby knowledgable guy, also in case to call area code 60448

Hello Phil,
Was on roof top unit , too cold and dark, sorry it took a while to get back with you.
Found these are not tied together, but has smoke detector each . Both were blocked by dirt.
Got access to one, and looks cleared that issue. I do really appreciate for the right tip gave.
One small issue still left .
After running a while it shut off heating , but came on itself after running a while and kept cycling.same way.
The LED blinks when it shuts off same like it is calling for heat?
Any possibilities?
I left since at least not cold any more.
Million thanks again.

Hello again, getting a parts manual for that older system will be difficult or impossible, and also not needed especially of you call in a local skilled HVAC contractor... these trouble shoot many brands and have no trouble sorting out the problem, then ordering anything they need from parts vendors, not using a parts manual or parts numbers.

The suppliers file it all under the unit brand and model number then locate the item by its description (such as gas valve or blower motor listed for that brand and model number)

THe two highest rated best established HVAC contractors in the area are:

http://climatemastermechanical.com/

http://www.maertinheating.com/

Either one should have no problem at all diagnosing and repairing your Trane equipment.

And as you noticed, both units are behaving identically, most likely its a common exterior problem having nothing to do with the Trane internals, but some sort of common wiring issue.

Let me know how it goes.
