Trane Problem-December 20, 2010
Trane Executive High Efficiency Gas Fired Forced Air Furnace.
Manufactured March-1987 Serial Number-811528788
(Furnace and Air Conditioning System—southern California.)
Furnace has struggled to ignite for the last few years. I do not believe it is a thermostat problem because the air conditioner works fine with the thermostat.
I have to pull the circuit plug for the condenser in order to get the furnace to expel heat. I had a guy out a couple of years ago, and he said to pull the circuit plug because the condenser and furnace were coming on at the same time.
This year, I vacuumed out the burner tubes and changed the filter, and the furnace worked fine for about a week.
I noticed that the furnace began to struggle to stay lit—like it was being starved for fuel—and slowly went out before reaching set temp.
Now, the furnace does not come on at all, but the pilot works fine. Does this sound like it can be repaired?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
