Hello,

ANSWER:

either the zone control panel relay for zone 1 is bad, or the zone one damper is stuck or failed ( 90% chance)

There is a 10% chance that the thermostat is defective or that a thermostat or damper wire is broken.

.

This repair is not at all basic. If you need me to locate a well rated service outfit for you your area, just tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will get you a short list of the best in the a area.
