Trane Technologies Inc. is a heating, ventilating, and air conditioning designer, manufacturer, and seller. A subsidiary of Ingersoll Rand Inc. the company is based in Swords, Dublin, and has managed to build a wide network around the world. With 104 manufacturing locations in 28 countries, the company is setting the world with one HVAC system at a time.
What started as a plumbing business, soon became manufacturing for heating products. Putting them in the direction of a cooling system, and lead to the first air conditioner production in 1931. After purchasing General Electronics they built on their findings and created systems that blew everyone away. Adding top-of-the-line requirements and technology to every new model they released, the company soon made a comfortable space at the top of the food chain.

Before requesting service, perform following checks. If the trouble has not been corrected, please contact a local dealer or the nearest customer service centre. Be sure to inform them of the details of malfunctions and unit model number. Do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Always consult an authorized service provider.
|Indoor unit does not give cool air immediately when unit starts.
|Compressor restarts after approximately three minutes to protect itself. On compressor restarting units starts to give cool air again.
|Unusual odor blowing from outlet when unit is started.
|Open the door or window for 2 minutes and run the AC in Fan mode to allow fresh air inside the room. This helps to remove odors from the room.
|Sound of water flow during operation.
|This is caused by refrigerant flowing inside the unit.
|Formation of mist while cooling.
|Room air is cooled quickly by cold air flow which looks like fog.
|Creaking noise during start or stop.
|Deformation of plastic because of temperature change.
|Unit does not operate.
|Check electrical system connections, cords and fuses. Check if power supply is within 10% of rated supply.
|Decreased cooling efficiency.
|Check ‘set temperature’. Check for obstructions in air inlet and outlet. Check air filters for dirt. Check indoor fan speed. Check any other openings in the room.
