    How to stop a trane

    fan belt was gone, nothing left to it. This is at a church and they just kept turning the tstat down thinking that would make it run. I put on a new belt and got the fan running and Im going back tomorrow afternoon to check it. This RTU is huge for this building. Not sure how many tons but its a two stage unit, Second stage isnt hooked up and never has been each stage holds 25 lbs of refrigerant

    Looks like a 15 or 20 ton Trane Voyager, I hope you disabled the compressor from running. If you didn't it will still look like this in the morning!

    Well at least you got a spare compressor when the iced one craps out on you.

    If it was "Snowball" it would take twenty years of that to kill it.

    Switch 1st and 2nd stage so you can give 1st stage a break.

    Kind of like a dual circulator pump set up for a boiler.
