Well it is excessive, so you wouldn't  want to run it at that level for long periods. Whether it (the 9142) has failed already is an open question.

Did you test the zener and big R together out-of-circuit, or with the other ICs still connected?
12.45V sounds low for a 15V zener (if that's what it is), so I wonder if something else is pulling the V down.

I hope the hall sensors are OK, I don't know how much variation on supply V they can tolerate.
