I forgot that there is a 3-4 degree difference is the interior temp sensors. Zone 1 seems to need to be set 3-4 degrees higher to maintain an even heat temp. Once I increased zone one temp higher all is well. I think I asked this somewhere else but how do you adjust the interior temp settings for each zone. Is the attached the sensor for the front bedroom?

The reason for the temp difference is because of the heat generated by the refrigerator, I removed the sensor cover and pulled the sensor about 2" past the wall and now both zones are the same.

I have the same problem. Where exactly did you attach the sensor?? Do you have a picture by any chance? Was there extra slack available to move more than 2" ? The heat generated by the refrigerator changes, so just adjusting the thermostat a few degrees is not a long term fix for me.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mine did the same thing and I also removed the cover and clip and pulled it out from the wall. Not much slack. About 2". I haven't done anything permanent yet. It just dangles next to the TV. I plan to fabricate a spacer to get it an inch or so away from the wall then caulk and insulate so the frig can't influence the temp.

I don't have temp sensor, like you all, but I thought I would chime in relative to fridge heat. When I had mine out to install a new cooling unit, I installed reflectix (reflective bubble wrap) insulation on all the walls and ceiling of the inside of the fridge compartment. In addition there is a large rubber "sweep gasket" (for lack of a better term) that surrounds the fridge and is supposed (it doesn't) to keep hot air from getting to the front part of the compartment. Working on this seal helps as well. Doing this mod helped with my wall temp and my thermostat behaved more predictably and closer to real interior temps.

I did the same as dcopps, pulled it out about 2", however I have lots of slack. I plan on going to Jackson Center before the warranty expiration so I will have them deal with it. For now it is hidden by the TV.

Blocked Air Ducts

After some experimentation with using Zone 1 and Zone 2 heat pumps, it makes little difference which is running. Zone 1 is actually the rear zone, or at least it pumps more air to the bedroom and has more noise in the bedroom.

Thus, at night, I run Zone 2 on Lo Fan, heat pump, yet the bedroom is always about 3 - 5 degrees warmer, and the amount of air from the vents is about three times as great (my guestimation) in the bedroom vs. the main front room.

So, I am of the conclusion that something is partially blocking the vents going to the front or main living area, creating a much heavier air flow to the rear bedroom. I will have this investigated by my dealer upon my return.

I always thought the bedroom was warmer because it is smaller and has less windows and no exterior door.

Blockage not seen

OK, so I removed a couple of the screens, placed my iPhone into the duct and took some photos. No evidence of any obstruction was seen.

So, on to Plan B.....

In the bedroom, I will place a couple adjustable baffles into the ducts and see if I can divert some of the air up front. It may simply be a matter of distance from the fans, and by diverting air to the front I can eliminate the rather severe draft onto the curbside position of the bed occupants when the fan is running.

More to come in a week or so.

Living down in the south - the best investment was to have installed ceramic tint on all windows. So far this summer the main A/C only works great. We are camping now in a friends drive way and only have 15a service and we are nice and cool in side and outside temps are near 90, humanity is near 100% today...
