    Trane XL824 with XV95/XR17 Wiring Problem

    I have a recently installed Trane XL824 with XV95/XR17. Just like a recent post from OnceRude in November 2014, I have wiring problems. This Wednesday, the contractor is coming back for the third time to fix the wiring or other setup problems.

    I have attached photos of the thermostat, furnace, and XR17 wires. This wiring does not agree with any diagrams in any installation manuals. The system does work, but I don't think I am getting the efficiency or comfort as advertised. I did check the System Info page on the Thermostat, and on page 3 it states the Blower Type is Non-Variable. This is a hint something is not right.

    Anyway, if anyone familiar with Trane equipment has time to look at my photos, please give me some advice of what is wrong.

    Thanks, Bob in Dayton

    11th digit in model # of furnace should be a V "variable speed"then blower tonnage. Your outdoor should be a two step scroll

    Your installer needs to have a sit down with his field service rep.
    "Hey Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort." And he says, "there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice. - Carl Spackler
