Trane might be a high-ranking company, but from time to time customers have complained about system errors. Fortunately, most of these errors can be fixed on your own. So rather than ignoring the error codes, your appliance is showing its time to note down the Trane VRF error code and get to the bottom of the problem. To help you out we have listed down the most common error codes of Trane VRF.
If an error occurs, one of more of the LEDs on the display (see “Components” for their location) will flicker.
As a protection strategy, the unit stops operating (and the LED turns off). If the unit is turned on before the problem is resolved, the LED will resume flickering and the unit will stop operating again.

Problem: The unit does not operate immediately after restarting it.
Solution: The anti-short cycle timer prevents the unit from operating immediately to keep it from overloading. The unit will start in 3 minutes.
Problem: The unit does not operate.
Solution: Verify the following;
- The power plug is properly inserted into the wall receptacle.
- There has not been a power failure.
- The circuit breaker is switched on/fuses are good.
Problem: The temperature does not change.
Solution: Verify that the unit is not operating in Fan mode. If it is, select a different mode.
Problem: The unit is not producing warm/ cool air.
Solution: Verify the following;
- Temperature setting on remote control is higher/lower than the current temperature.
- Air filter is not clogged with dirt.
- If the unit has just been turned on, wait 3 minutes for the anti-short cycle timer to expire.
- Air flow is unobstructed.
- Line size and length is correct and does not exceed factory recommendations.
- Operating mode is heat/cool.
- If unit is not producing warm air, is it set to Cool mode?
- Remote control is not for a cooling-only unit.
- That the unit has not been installed in direct sunlight. If so, hang curtains or shades on windows to filter the sun and increase unit efficiency.
Problem: The fan speed does not change.
Solution: Verify that Auto or Dry mode is selected. Either of these modes automatically adjust the fan speed.
Problem: Timer function does not work.
Solution: Press the Power button on the remote control after setting the time.
Problem: Odors permeate the room during operation.
Solution: Verify the origin of the odor. Operate the unit in Fan mode or open the windows to air out the room.
Problem: The unit makes a bubbling sound
Solution: A bubbling sound may be heard;
- When the refrigerant is circulating through the compressor.
- By the drain pump inside the unit when you press the Power button.
Problem: Water is dripping from the air flow blades.
Solution: If the unit has been running for an extended period of time with the blades fully open, adjust the blades to mid-position to alleviate condensation formation.
Problem: The remote control is not working.
Solution: Verify that;
- Batteries are not depleted.
- Batteries are correctly installed.
- Nothing is blocking the remote control sensor.
- No strong fluorescent or neon lighting is near the unit, which may interrupt the signal.
Problem: The unit does not turn on/off with the wired remote control.
Solution: Ensure that the wired remote control is not set for Group Control.
Problem: Indicators on the digital display flash.
Solution: Press the Power button on the remote control to turn the unit off. Then switch the circuit break off and then on again.
