Our technician was sent to a home for an HVAC diagnostic and upon examination found that the current 4 wire Honeywell zone valve is not functioning properly. The heat zone thermostat closes the heat circuits and then energizes the zone valve via a 120 to 24v 40VA transformer. However the end switch wires he found there is no contact made meaning the internal valve component are not working properly. The tech tested the secondary zone in this hydronic system on the steam boiler and that zone valve during a call for heat did close the end switch. He replaced the zone valve and re-wired the system, also bled out the zone, additionally he inspected the kicktoe heater for operation, one of the two is not circulating on the fan side, Then and after removing a bit more air from the system managed to close the internal thermostat on that kicktoe heater. The valves to remove air on kick toe heaters are not good and should be changed out.
