    trane rtaa slidevalve

    while i have read this forum for years I have never actually talked to any of you, still thanks for all your insight. A few months ago I read a link about slidevalves on rtaa sticking, thus causing a high current overload on startup. has anyone ran into this before and if so what was the fix.

    Have you checked everything? It could be a bad unload solenoid, a leaking lip seal, a leaking load solenoid, or a stuck piston. So have you verified that it is a stuck piston.

    Nique, welcom to the forum!

    This subject has been talked about numerous times so I don't think a new thread needs to be started. Just search "RTAA slide valve problems" or "RTAA oil flow problems" and you'll get all the info you need.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    wow do I sense some frustration, so I spent a couple of hours searching and found all the info I needed plus some. I will be replacing the "puck" in the next couple of days. So thanks for getting me on the right track.
