    Wow, one sentence. Any chance you can edit your post to make it more readable?

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Do the same thing a pro would do if using a component for the first time.......Read the install instructions. In your case, you'll have to do it for every wired component in your system. Then draw up a schematic that you can work from. It takes more time for a DIYer to do. There's no getting around that.

    You have not made any friends with this comment.

    Even after I decode your sentence, it does not make much sense, although I have tried twice now.

    I think that what you meant to say is that first, you have a two zone hot water heating system. Second, the zone for the first floor appears to be holding the thermostat set temperature properly. Third, the zone for the second floor appears to be over the set temperature. Fourth, you mention a control on the chimney, which you think may be a safety -- and probably is.

    The control on the chimney and the wires related to it is irrelevant.

    What you don't mention is whether the zone valve for the second floor is responding to the thermostat for the second floor. That would be helpful to know, and is something which you should check.

    I get it. I'll guess that this zone has worked in the past? I've found that often after a few years the Honeywell valves don't close completely and they allow a small amount of energy to past through whenever another zone is calling. Easy to find.
    turn your heat way down at both zones till the rooms cool a bit. turn the functioning zone up and feel the pipes after the offending zone valve. They should not heat up.
