No comparison

I know, I was just trying to make a point that Trane, although affiliated with american standard(the faucet making company) should not be compared to their product in terms of quality. Trane's...

Your control board is most likely burnt up.

It could be your transformer. (little black retangular box with wires wound inside). It will have a distinct electrical burn smell.

I'm not a plumber, but.....

I can't tell how all the plumbing ties together up top, but I've heard gravity feed is a problem with hydronic systems.

Try some stuff before dropping a couple bills on a zone valve.

All good ideas

Another possible solution, assuming you want a lot of airflow into that room and the duct is sufficiently undersized is to move your flexible duct takeoff to the top of the plenum.

Roll-out switch

You most likely have hairline cracks in the heat exchanger and may not even be visible with a scope if expansion only happens when heated.
The switch may very well be bad now because they're not...

Defrost cycle

Don't keep causing yourself stress by trying to contact a contractor that avoids you. Under no circumstances should a professional leave a customer uncomfortable.

Those readings are possible on a good running system.

Many variables dictate duct temperature including, but not limited to, air speed, dirty coil, and refrigerant charge.

I assume you have gas back-up heat.

Check outdoor coil sensor working properly.

Refrigerant charge may be low.

I don't believe taking a pressure reading before the a-coil will give you the static pressure reading your looking for.

Take the reading in the duct trunk. Compare this pressure reading to your...
