    Dog Chewed Wiring, Help please

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone can help me out.
    My dog chewed up the wires to the air conditioner and I dont know which wires to reconnect. I have a trane xe 1000. There are two wires coming from the ac which are yellow and blue and there are 3 wires coming from the house which are Red, Green, and White. Can anyone tell me which the wires are supposed to be connected to? Thank you

    If the transformer isnt blown already it will be if you mess this up. There is no way to know what colors the installer used. Trust me. It will be worth the service call to get it done. You will be out a lot more money if you try it and mess it up.

    Can I tell the colors the installer use by just looking at the thermostat?

    I didnt know it was against the rules. But i wasnt kidding that if you screw it up you will be in for more money. It would be a fairly easy fix if i was on site with my meter. If you mess it up it gets nasty with the tech having to crawl into the attic to fix it. No way would i wish that on any tech nor would i wish you to have to spend much more on a repair instead of just a service call and quick fix.

    Is there a way to check which wires go where by using a voltage reader?

    A tech can do it in short order. Shouldn't be a very expensive repair really. Just don't call a national franchise or something. They'll try to tell you to replace everything because they don't know how to fix it only sell sell sell.

    Turn off the circuit breaker to the air handle until it's fixed.
