    Trane Model TWE036C140BO

    We just got from a camping trip and our ac isn't cooling at all. The unit is blowing warm air, I checked the lines to see if they were frozen. Nope, not even a bead of sweat. I checked the drain to see if it might be stopped up, its bone dry. Could this be the problem?

    A dry drain is not the problem. Check circuit breakers, reset if necessary. Make sure all switches are turned to the "ON" position, make sure the t-stat is set to "COOL" and temperature selected below room temperature. Once you've done all of those things, you've done all the homeowner should attempt. The next step is to call your HVAC contractor had invite him over to diagnose and repair the problem.
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    Thanks, one more question could a bad capacitor have the same affect? The reason I ask about 6 months ago I had a service tech out for a similar problem and he had to replace a bad capacitor.

    is possible, That's why you need to place a service call.

    So apparently the indoor unit is running, is the outdoor unit running?
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
