@Pithon you should include the operating system and OpenStudio version in your report.

Thank you @Pithon.

I looked at your OSM files and this is definitely a bug. I have filed a GitHub issue here.

You can workaround this temporarily by opening your bug report OSM in a text editor and manually deleting these lines...

  ,                                       !- Zone Equipment 1
  1,                                      !- Zone Equipment Cooling Sequence 1
  1,                                      !- Zone Equipment Heating or No-Load Sequence 1

from any OS:ZoneHVAC:EquipmentList that has them.

@MarkAdams, I thank you for as short answer and solution to the problem.

I solved the same problem in another way that may be useful to other users: deleted the air loop and thermal zones involved in bug and created all over again, this time with a different diffuser.

@Pithon I have made a bug fix, if I send you a pre release installer package would you be willing to verify that the problem is gone? If the answer is yes, then please email me at kyle.benne@nrel.gov and I'll link you to the installer.
