All in all, the steps to reset a Trane Thermostat are specific to its model. But irrespective of the model, there are steps that remain the same.

Let me begin by listing out these generic steps first.

  1. No matter what type of electrical device you’re using, turning it off is how you begin. The same holds true for a Trane Thermostat. Turn it off.
  1. Wait for about thirty seconds up to a minute. Turn your thermostat back on. Set it to heat or cool
  2. Depending on your preference, set your desired temperature. Once the system switches on, you’ll hear a beeping sound.
  3. In case you aren’t able to hear or feel the flow of the air, go near the circuit protection box or control box.
  4. The next step is to make sure the thermostat’s HVAC system is working properly. If it is, turn it back on.

If it was “ON” already, try switching it “OFF” and then turn it “ON” again.

  1. Restart the system by making use of the Power button.
  2. Complete resetting by controlling your desired temperature.

These steps proved to be instrumental in resetting my Trane thermostat. But there’s a chance that the steps I’ve mentioned don’t work for you.

Rebooting or resetting helps refresh the thermostat. Doing so raises its efficiency.
