"We're happy with it"
We found this site looking for a replacement pressure switch for our furnace Diamond 90 series (the original has started to stick closed - thanks for the detailed information, diagnostic led - and the furnace won't start unless we rap it gently to unstick it). And we replaced an ignitor a year or so ago. Nonetheless, as we enter our ninth central New Hampshire heating season we're happy with it (though not with the current price of propane, which is causing us to start looking at standing-column well heat pumps and pellet stoves; folks with access to natural gas should still find operating costs attractive, though): we've performed no routine maintenance at all (probably should at least get a brush to check the flame tubes for carbon, but there's been no loss of efficiency so it's probably not too bad), the two repairs we've had to make have been inexpensive (on eBay) diy jobs, and otherwise our DIY-installed $1150 furnace (plus a few hundred more for installation hardware: we used to heat our open-plan house quite comfortably with a centrally-located wood stove and just ran a single duct to the same location) has served us well.

I have had a YORK Diamond 90 gas furnace for 16 years and no service calls EVER. Quality to the end: 'It's time to get comfortable.'
Other Diamond 90 Reviews
Reviews of this furnace cite problems with it blowing cold air instead of heated air.
At doityourself.com forum owners express problems with the York Diamond 90 blowing cold air; the furnace will not stay ignited. One user found out through a HVAC professional service call that it is was a problem with the wiring harness caused by constant vibration. The online professional said that this type of problem is hard to find and the service person deserved a special gift for his diligence.
One consumer asks about the location of any reset buttons on justanswer.com. In some cases these buttons can solve the problem of the furnace blowing only cold air. An ignition problem is discussed on fixya.com; cleaning the ignition area can help the igniter stay lit.
