    Split and wash out the "inside condensor". Pull the top off where the condensor fans are located. Set the whole condensor fan assembly on the top of the unit. Thats why you have all that extra condensor fan wire! On the end of the condensor will be some screws that are holding the condensor in place. When you remove the screws there you will find maybe 2 or even 3 condensor coils that are zip tyed together at the return bends. Seperate the coils and wash them out. They are fairly flexible. Two men are required. After you find the dirt blanket on the inside take a picture of it and post it. Then everyone will know what stops a Trane.

    one may be spinning backwards, where it has a bad cap, or the fuse is blown (its the screw-on ones on the right side of the control panel).
    If one of those fuses were blown neither of the fans would run.

    Did you change the filter/drier? Did you look at the temp drop across the drier?

    I've had pretty good luck with these RTU's usually fixes them when you clean the coils like you are saying. Actually kinda makes you think you accomplished something too.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Why do we think it is dirty coil or bad fan motor or bad blades?

    He said he has 23 degrees subcool.

    23 DEGREES SUBCOOL.

    I don't get it. Maybe I miss something since it is trane unit.

    I recently took 182 lbs of extra refrigerant out of a chiller that was possibly charged to superheat. That was tripping on high head too?????
