Carrier 38TXA030 not working

We have a Carrier 38TXA030 two zone central system. A few days ago after a power outage one of the zones failed to restart. Power to the thermostat is out but all breakers are on, both on the main panel and on the outside power switch. The other zone is working fine. Any ideas?
Thanks.

    Already tried to reset by turning off main panel breakers and outdoor switch but alas, to no avail. Don't know if or where there are any micro fuses in our system. The thermostat power comes from the system itself, with no fuses visible.

That sounds like a very efficient system Gratz. You can try a reset by throwing the breakers off and back on and check all your micro fuses on boards and zone controllers. GL!

    Heres carriers site you should be able to run down the info you need there :) you'll need your model numbers and you should be able to find all your manuals here for settings and fuse size and locations GL!

How do I connect a 24v damper motor with 6 colored wires red white yellow green blue black to NO COM NC terminals.


Choose two colors of the thermostat wire, and connect them to the NO and COM and connect them to the zone control board leads for the zone intended. Almost all zone valves spring return open when deenergized. So ensure the zone valve is open with the system is off. At the base of zone valve there is a set screw that needs to engage the damper valve shaft in the open position with the motor in the spring release position. Most zone valve are 90 degree moment from full open to full shut. If you have a Carrier zone valve, they go full open to full shut in 45 degrees of motion. Your open stop need to be set so the valve stops in the full stop position.
To help understand the operation of a zone system, say you have 2 zone system and zone 1 thermostat initiates a heat or cool demand. Zone 2 valves energizes and shuts and zone 1 stays open and allow air to heat/ cool zone 1. If zone 2 thermostat simultaniously initiates the same heat/cool demand, the zone 2 valve opens and both zone heat/cool. When either thermostat is satisfied the opposite zone valve closes and when both thermostat are satisfied both zone valves open.
Hope this helps you understand zone operation. The same works for higher multizone systems.

You should not have the blower fan running if all thermostats are set as you say. You either have a relay problem in the air handler or the zone system wiring or controller is defective.

Hi, You need to have a bypass installed that has a wieghted damper on it so that it will bypass the extra air when the other zones close...that also means that you need a duct sensor to shut down the comprassor to keep the coils from freezing up...it gets a bit complicated, but can be done...

Zone is set to deliver AC but nothing comes out of the vents


Your duct system has dampers that separate the four zones. Even though all four sensors are working and call for a/c, you may not be getting voltage to the damper motors, which open when there is a call for a/c, and close when the call is satisfied. In certain parts of your duct system, you will find small orange or gray boxes with wires going into them. Those are the motors for the dampers. When there is a call for a/c in all four zones, check to see if you have power going to those boxes. If power is present, the motors are bad or the damper itself is stuck. If power is not present, check the master zone control.

We have the same problem, was hit with lightning and came up E1


You didn't get a Carrier tech. Carrier technicians only work on commercial equipment. Residential applicaitions, installation and service of Carrier residential units are done by dealers. They are not carrier owned but get buy the product at discount get training and get to show our logo. You can't fix the boards, they have to be replaced. It sounds like you have a Gen II VVT system. You can get the part via Totaline stores or a distributor. You will need to know how to readdress the other controllers to operate correctly. Use WWW.Carrier.com.

Zoned system one zone not working


I hit the reset button on the main unit and that reset all the sensors. It was so easy but when I called Carrier's customer service line they told me there was nothing they could recommend. Not very good customer service. Avoid Carrier brand if possible.
