Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Carrier HVAC Unit


I live in a two story home built in 1998 with one Carrier unit Model FA4ANF060. I have had problems, in the winter, with the blower being stuck on multiple times. I have one thermostat downstairs, and one upstairs. Two dampers. I replaced one of the dampers two years ago because the HVAC technician said it was bad. But I am still having problems with the unit being stuck 'on' when trying to heat two zones. I usually set the downstairs around 70 deg F, and the upstairs at 74 during the night time, but I have awoken in the morning with the upstairs temperature of over 80 deg F.  Besides installing another unit, what other problems could be occuring.

I am not sure what you mean by stuck on, as the unit is on when heating...  

It seems the problem really lies in the zone controller.  With a mutli-zone system, there is a zone control that makes everything do what it needs to do.  It does not appear replacing the system is the solution at this time.

I have been in the HVAC field for the past 18 years. I can help with most HVAC questions. I work on commerical buildings for the most part, and have yet to find anything I could not troubleshoot and repair, when repairable. I work on small 1 ton units to a 2500 ton chiller. Troubleshoot air flow, elect, and control problems. I attend regular classes to keep up with the latest and greatest.


I work on commerical sites, hospitals, gov't buildings. I can troubleshoot just about anything in the HVAC business.
