Hello everbody first time poster. My trane xe1000 air conditioning fan will not start automatically, when I give it a spin by hand it works fine... is the motor bad?

Assuming you are talking about the fan on the outside unit and it runs fine until the next time it's supposed to start....the most likely problem is the capacitor. If you do a search here or on the 'Net for "A/C fan starting capacitor" or similar...you will find plenty of info. Normally about a $35 or less part and less than an hour or so for replacement.

Turn off all power before upening up the cabinet....throw the breakers and turn off the disconnect if there is one.

If you need more help...come back and ask....and Welcome to the Forums!
