Trane XV80 and Comfort-R
I have a XV80 - around 9-10 years old but in great condition.
Just had the Trane Clean Effects Upgrade kit installed.
The Installer also hooked up the 2 stage t-stat to the furnace by removing the W1/W2 jumper on the furnace and connecting W2 on the t-stat to W2 on furnace.
So far so good.
He also checked the dip switches 5&6 - both were on.
He then jumpered Y and O on the furnace to 'activate' Comfort-R.
However, since then, the A/C never goes above 50% power.
I can find no mention in the Installer manual of the need to jumper Y and O.
The only reference I see is on the back of the lower door cover that states:
"If a Humidistat is used, Connect between BK and R. For Cooling-ONly/Non Heat Pump Systems Jumper Y and O for Humidistat operation. If a Humidistat is NOT used Jumper R to BK."
So - basically should Y and O be jumpered - and if so why might the air not now being going above 50%?
When you say that the A/C does not go above 50%, do you meen the air flow when running constant fan?
According to the Install guide, the A/C should kick in at 50% for 1 minute then jump to 80% for 7.5 minutes then jump to 100% only if required.
It does not appear to be going above the initial 50%
Don't you think it is faster and better to call that same techinician out to resolve your problem than posting your question on this website. We all know it is not a DIY website. If you want some understanding, than ask that technician to explain it to you or to give you the literature to read.

He actually said before he left, if the fan did not go up from 50% - that I should remove the Y and O jumper....!!!
He probably doesn't have Y hooked to the board to tell the furnace he's calling for cool. That's why you only get 50%. Tell him to try again! The Y-0 jumper is fine.
