zoned heating, actuator clicking when slave tries to turn on gas furnace
Getting VERY frustrated. Son- in- law tested power at slave thermostat, Power from new slave thermostat seems to send a signal to actuator from the slave and there is a clicking in the actuator which I had replace w/ a Honeywell compatible actuator last May. Guy from "Home Advisor" refuses to come back. Spent 3 hours here and installed it. Apparently, he did not know what he was doing. I digress. Main thermostat turns on and off the furnace (Thank God). Slave in family room makes the new actuator "click" (my daughter said that the clicking was coming from the actuator)but does not turn on the furnace. Is there a way to test the power GOING in and coming OUT of the actuator. Seems that there are 2 wires going in and one coming out. Too bad my son-in-law and his father (a contractor) live 85 miles away. Need to get this resolved. I spent $500 and am right back where I started. PSE&G sent me on a wild goose chase before all this analysis started. Please help. My feeling is that the tester which my son- in- law used at the slave thermostat wires after he removed it should be able to detect a signal going into the actuator and coming out.
