Trane Thermostat Says Waiting [Solved]

A Trane thermostat may say “waiting” due to a delay in the system startup, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a problem with the condensate drain switch. Possible fixes include waiting for the delay to end, checking the thermostat for issues, or checking the condensate drain and resetting the switch if necessary.

Check the power supply: Make sure that your thermostat is getting power from the circuit breaker. Check if the thermostat display is lit up, and if not, check the power supply.

Bypass the thermostat: If the thermostat display is lit up but showing “waiting”, then try bypassing the thermostat. To do this, you will need to remove the thermostat from the wall and connect or twist some wires together, effectively bypassing the thermostat. 

To test if the fan is working, connect the  R wire(power) to the G( fan wire). The blower fan might start running immediately.

To test if the outdoor unit has no problem, connect the R terminal to the Y( compressor relay) for this bypass you might need to wait for at least 5 minutes before the condenser kicks in, this is the time delay period.

If the system turns on when you bypass the thermostat, then the problem is likely with the thermostat.

Check the condensate drain: If bypassing the thermostat doesn’t work, then check the condensate drain for a switch that could have tripped. If you find water in the drain pan, drain it out and power the system back on. If the switch was tripped, this should reset it and your system should start working normally.

Check the condenser unit: If none of the above steps work and the condenser unit is not receiving power, then the problem could be with the wiring or the circuit breaker. Check the wiring and make sure it is properly connected. If the wiring is fine, then check the circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If it has, reset it and see if the system starts working.
