Dual Zone Air Conditioner

Just this stuff installed and realized the dual zone AC won’t work. They said it would be two weeks before a technician can come out. The thermostats look like they are installed correctly. Anyone run into this and have a quick fix?

Sorry.  This is primarily a cellular forum.  Installation isn't in our tool bag.

Maybe @Marinoice can help determine if there's a quick fix.

is it a dual complete system with heat and air? There are also internal system settings on the thermostat that might need to be checked. Make sure the system is off. Then hit the menu button. Click on the hvac setup button. Please let me know what numbers the thermostats are set on.

Nothing seems to work.  It worked before the install.

there is a possiblity your fuse on your board that may be blown. Im not sure if you are safe with touching the unit but on the board (if its kind of modern) usually has a 3AMP fuse. It is usually purple in color. You can also check with a voltage meter if you have one at the thermostat to test if there is any voltage at all.

@Marinoice were the pictures helpful?

 

 

We are a week away from a service appointment and I hope the technician knows how to address this AC issue.

no in the the pictures everything looks fine. It is hard to determind the issue without physically being there. do you have an actual furnace unit? usually has panels you can take off to look at the wiring.

Thank you for trying to assist me.  I decided to wait for the tech since I wasn't familiar with the AC systems. 

 

The tech came out and said that the thermostats don't support dual zone systems.  I explained our conversation and that others have said they do, but he checked with their AC specialist and said they didn't. 

 

I need the AC to work so he is putting in the old thermostats.  I am disappointed that we have to give up this portion of the home automation.

After putting the old thermostats back we are going to have to get an AC person out to fix the unit.  I sure wish the installer knew this wouldn't work with a dual zone system.

 

This has been an experience!

AC specialist fixed the AC.  He said he thinks they must have cut the wires and shorted out the dual zone unit.  No longer have automation - but got air!

I have exactly the same problem now, however I've found a great repairing center. I personally can’t repair anything on my own, lol, I believe that it’s much better to pay for services instead of paying twice for breaking even more your air con. socool.sg -This aircon servicing is perfect for me, my samsung was pooring some kind of oil and I was scared that it can burst. So, I’ve ordered these guys’ services and they arrived quickly, did their work brilliantly and durably. I suggest you look through their page. Nice service!
