I guess every knows that the Inducer Fan Motor is giving him a problem right now and it needs to be replaced with a new OEM motor.
But that is not a complete repair. Again this unit has a major issue per the Trane Service Bulletin which specifically address a complete upgrade to prevent total malfunction of ALL the controls and related switches and contactors.
Its not a big deal but if the upgrade has not been performed it is certain that he will have major problems with the remaining controls when the motor fails. There are no safety's in place which will prevent this failure and its highly possible that a fire can develop with in the controls cabinet.
So.....The kit is available which is to alter the existing control sequence of the inducer fan motor. It includes wire harness and isolation contactor for HI and LO speeds.
To understand it better he will have to read the service bulletin. I have one somewhere but for now here is the repair kit Lit No. which he needs to get for the repair.
The Combustion Fan Motor Lit: RT-SVN17A-EN Dated February 20011
Troubleshooting is not part of the repair...understand the symptoms and you will find a solution.

expiration dates do not make any difference. they are for the manufacturer only. on some service bulletins, the experation date is for warranty claims only. but in every case, the problem still may exist and needs to be addressed.The weak aren't destroyed by the strong.
The weak are destroyed by the under-estimated.

I had to replace three combustion blower assemblies in the last two months. The motors were shorted and running all the time. Another Tech just replaced one the other day at one of my accounts and none of them came with a wire harness and isolation contactor for HI and LO speeds. I was at Trane today and asked them about the service bulletin, they gave me a copy of it but didn't want to talk about it. I asked if they would replace the motors under warranty and he said I could try to. I asked why the new motors didn't come with the wire harness and isolation contactor and he said you have to ask for it. But if you didn't know about the service bulletin they weren't going to tell you.
