running chtMultiRegionFoam I get the following output:
Create fluid mesh for region topAir for time = 0
Create solid mesh for region heater for time = 0
--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
keyword startFace is undefined in dictionary "::zones"
file: ::zones from line 55 to line 55.
From function dictionary::lookupEntry(const word&, bool, bool) const
in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 395.
but I don't know which file or dict to look for 'startFace'
Does anyone know if this is BC problem or what cause this error?

I don't know if it helps, but I had a similar problem - though it was not in zones but in minX. I simply had tried to implement another geometry and had taken over all of the names, patches, etc...
The entry "startFace" in my case was missing within bottomAir/polyMesh/boundary .
Entering the entries for nFaces and startFace (and doing similar in a few initial solutions within the 0-folder) did make the simulation cross that point at least.
Perhaps that already works for you?
In my case though the simulation failed afterwards with a segfault, because I was doing weird things with the geometry. ;-)
