Hello,

My name is Billy. Did this unit run ok (correctly) after the new thermostat?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question

Thank you, ***** ***** the indoor unit shuts off fine but the outdoor continues you have a welded contactor.

This is the main relay the power wires attach to.

Sometimes you can pry them apart, but they will always stick again.

The only fix is to replace the contactor.

Thanks billy thats what I figured just need to go out and take it appart If I can find the service panel on my Trane XE 1200

A good clue is where the power wiring enters....get into that panel..follow the main power wires and they lead to the contactor.
