Easy way is to call your local Trane distributor, and give him the model number of the equipment. Or just thaw and remove the valve and read its number.

How do you know the TXV is bad.

well I put all in r-22 in had proper subcooling but I still couldn't get my suction above 45psi when down to the evap coil and saw the distributor on txv and part of the coil were freezing up. I have proper air flow and filter has ben changed. I cleaned the coil outside when I first arrived suction was still 45psi and head pressure was over 400 other companies have been there before and dumped refrigerant in this is why I wanted to start clean but still had a problem.

yes I recovered the refrigerant and weighed in the charge. before I did that I was getting crazy numbers with superheat and subcooling and ovb with the pressures. after I weighed it in and went fo correc subcooling I couldn't get the suction above 45ps and high side was normal. I saw the frost building up on the txv outlet side imgoing to call the local trane dealer tomorrow and get specs for the txv maybe I can buy ne from thm instead of supply house. like I said im still pretty new in the trade only a couple months and if replacing te txv doesn't work im all out of ideas.

yeah that was one of the first places I looked nothing... I was talking to the family member im doing it for and he told me the guy installed it latr in the day so my guess is the guy is a hack and just wanted to get out of there.
