Read more about York Furnaces
The discontinued York Diamond 80 was a single-stage gas furnace with an 80% AFUE rating. It features a computerized blower motor for even air circulation, a tubular heat exchanger, an integrated computerized control system, and an induced combustion system to promote quiet operation.
The Diamond 80 was available in up-flow/horizontal and down-flow models and was made of a thin structure, allowing it to fit into narrow spaces. The unit also featured a pre-painted, corrosion-resistant steel cabinet for maximum protection.
In 1997, York International recalled the 80 downflow mid-efficiency furnaces with model numbers starting with P2DP, PBKD, and XED02. Faulty gluing of the insulation surrounding the heat exchanger, potentially causing the cabinet wall to fall on the heat exchanger and start a fire led to the recall which covered 21,000 units.

Why do they go throw memory boards so often? I put one on about once a year: parts and labor: $196.00.

Had a York furnance installed when we built our new home. Uggggg! Problems every year. We eventually got a new service company and they confirmed our fears, too many of the York systems are not so good. We got one of the systems they said they see allot of issues with, Were replacing the entire set-up next week. We chose Trane after looking at Carrier and Lennox also. We'll see, many of our neighbors have Trane and they have had no problems.
