Either you have a loose wire connection from control board to valve, or your flame sensor is bad.

Where can I get a gas valve? Should I get the furnace company to replace the valve with a modified valve?


If they could not find you a gas valve, the part is obsolete. You do not want to buy the modified part because of waking up several times each night to relight the pilot light. Time to buy a new furnace.

York Diamond 90 furnace blows cold air


There maybe a few issues. They have multiple safeties on furnaces. With this in mind this process to find the problem would take a Technician to check these safeties. It could be a flame sensor or thermocoupler each senses a flame or heat to keep the gas going. Also the damper for the flue must open for the gas to stay on. There may be more safeties on this and each safety sends a 24 volt current back to control module in order for the gas valve to stay open. If these aren't being met it will try around three times and go into a lock out mode which will keep gas shut off entirely.

It sounds to me like you have problems with the gas valve as you have eliminated pretty much everything else. I would check all wiring to valve,check for any breaks on the insulation and clean all connections.
When the burner goes out is the blower still running or does it quit then the burner go off? If that is the case I would think the thermal overload on motor was tripping. It makes me more inclined to suspect the gas valve due to the lack of any diagnostic code.
One other thing I would try is to check power to gas valve when burner is firing and see what it does when it cuts out.If it maintains power when gas shuts off then I would replace gas valve. Good luck and thank you.

Sounds like your gas valve is sticking. Your repair man is somewhat correct by meaning that the furnace will attempt to start 3 times before going out on "Lock-out". The furnace is reaching it's expected life and you will start experiencing more frequent issues with it. Check into some of the incentives to get a replacement with a higher efficiency rating. The newer units have greatly improved in performance as well as comfort.

There is a chart with the wiring diagram and othere charts that will tell you what the 6 blinks are for. That should tell you what is wrong and what part you need. Sounds to me like the board has an issue or the gas valve is locked out.

Fault Code on Dayton Gas Furnace


This happens when the furnaces tries to light to many times and doesnt succeed. If you stand in front of the furnace while it is coming on, you will be able to hear the problem. If its an electronic start, there will be a clicking sound, followed by the gas valve opening to start it. If it has a pilot light, make sure it is lit, then listen for the gas to come out, it will make a hissing sound. If no gas is coming out, first double check to see if the gas is turned on to the unit, if it is, then its possibly the gas valve. Oh, if it is electronic, and you hear gas, but dont see a glow inside the furnace, or no glow or gas, it could be the ignite. Hope this helps.

Your hot surface igniter may be bad. It may be cracked which would prevent it from starting the burner flame.
