    If you provide good service you should not worry about trane or any one for that matter.

    The RTAA from the exceedingly popular cold oil thread along with it's two buddies took a lightening strike 6 months after they were installed. Took out several boards.

    Trane sent a guy out to do the warranty replacement and reconfigure the machines. Monkeyed around with display for about 20 minutes and then asked to borrow my RTA manual.

    It was encouraging.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Been doing this for 20 years, although this is the first trane CHHP screw I have came across. Most of my screw knowledge is Hitachi and mcquay.

    I get the checking oil level procedure now, so that's not an issue anymore.

    One of the circuits is giving a Low Oil Flow alarm, I was told that the oil filter may be causing this. As well I was told the strainer on the return line from the bottom of the evap could be clogged, but I removed and cleaned that, still getting same error. I can clear the error and it comes back within an hour, every time it is reset.

    I was also told the oil/filter should be changed after 1 year, which it was not. So I was told to also go ahead and replace the check valve located behind the oil filter while I was in there, as well as the oil solenoid for good measure. He also hinted that I should have with me the full amount of oil that each circuit takes, just incase something goes wrong and oil gets blown out, lost, etc...

    Yes, I have techview, and I know how to use it, I have no issue binding the new sensor, etc... And splicing the com/power cable is not rocket science... lol

    What I really need is part numbers, and I would really like to have the compressor manual. Otherwise how am I supposed to know what the oil filter cover, etc... gets torqued to? Or does trane not care about torque specs anymore?... Not to mention once I take the oil cover off, are they any specialty sized tools that I need to remove the filter itself? or the check valve?... I kind of like to have the facts before I go tearing into something and then have to send someone off to grab a tool that we do not have on the site. Meanwhile the customer is paying for it because we were not prepared before we began the work. Not to mention this is the FDA building in Washington DC, so downtime needs to be as short as possible.

    So... If anyone could provide me with a parts list, with part numbers, I would be very grateful. I am going to give Trane yet another call tomorrow to see if I can speak to someone more familiar with what I am asking for.

    As far as the serial number goes, I highly doubt there are different oil filters, check valves, oil solenoids, that a serial number would tell you.
    However, if you can tell me what I need to know by me giving you the serial numbers, I have no problem sending them to you in a PM or email, I will not post them on a public forum though. It would be against our policy.

    Thanks again all!

    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.

    Thanks to the person who emailed me the oil filter and gasket part number!

    Anyone know the others? Really need the Evap Leaving Water Temp sensor. It's the flat cable type, insertion well mounted.

    Thanks!
