Trane XE1000 Outside Fan Not Working How to Solve it? I have a 10 year old trane xe1000 unit and I heard a humming noise outside this morning . The compressor fan was trying to spin but was binding up. When I turned the unit off, and opened the unit to check the fan motor it turned freely. When it is powered back up, the Trane XE1000 Outside Fan is binding and will not turn.
Answer about Trane XE1000 Outside Fan Not Working
Try with the unit calling to run . Give the Trane XE1000 Outside Fan a push to start. If it takes off and runs get a new capacitor for it . If not and it does get 220V to it . Id say time for a new motor. make sure you get the same Hp and RPM also that it turns the same way CW or CCW.
When a motor does that it has too much end play meaning one of the bearings has worn on the inside allowing the rotor to move too close to the front plate you will need to replace when you get a new one make sure to take the old one off and get a replacement that has the same characteristics all the info is listed on the data plate and any good supply house should be able to match you up. If they sell you a universal one the wiring diagrams will walk you through the retrofit they will give you options for a three wire or four wire aplication and you can choose rotation and make sure to get a new trane xe1000 capacitor.
