Zone valves help needed

I can't figure out these darn Taco valves. I can by pass them and everything runs fine until the house is 90 degrees. Then the Mrs gets upset. I know they work, but I can't get them to work. I had the same problem last year. If I so much as touch the middle contact screw on the bottom of one, the thing opens and the heat comes through.
Who ever designed the heat system, has the upstairs thermostat connected to the first floor dining room and living room radiator loop. The first floor thermostat opens the pipes to the second floor bathroom and first floor kitchen, but is located in the living room. Maybe there is a reason for this. How do I check these darn taco valves to make sure they work properly???

Are you talking just zone valves, or circulators?
Do you have a model number?
Here's a link that I've used for some help. I've delt with Tom McOrmic and Mario Silva. They've both done lots to help, including talking me through an electronic trouble shoot, while on my cell phone in a customers basement.
