Question about York Yankees Bedding MLB Comforter

4 Answers

I have a York Stellar model mid efficiency furnace Model # P?UCD12N07601A, Serial # EXAM3600524 installed in 1992. The HSI was replaced approximately 3 months ago. Over the last two weeks the ventor motor comes on, the HSI lights but does not ignite the gas. The ventor motor runns continously and the HSI continues to turn off and on without gas ignition. Some times by turning the ventor motor off and on (by opening and closing the bottom furnace faces panel door) will give be ignition after the HSI goes through 1-4 cycles. If I can't get it to work I call my furnace repair guy. The serviceman thought it was the pressure switch and ordered one. Just this last weekend I had no heat and another service guy came in replaced the HSI again and adjusted the pressure switch and said this fix should work. Less than a day later furnace still experiencing the same problem-Ventor motor comes on, HSI comes on but no gas ignition. ventor motor runs continuously and the temperature in the house drops! I'm frustrated and the servicemen don't seem to know how to fix the problem for good.

    The serviceman is out at my house again today. (I told him not to leave until it fixes it!) I'll pass this suggestion along to him and let you know.



    Thank you

    I just had the service guy over (2nd time today). We talked it out and the gas value and circuitry to the gas valve were both suggestions he will try. He'll be back tomorrow with equipment to check the valve. If this does not work I'll have him look into the circuit boards.

  • cec_57 Feb 08, 2010

    Yes, no luck with flame sensor. I had the service guy over for 2nd time today as furnace was not working again later in the day. What do you think about an intermittant problem with the gas value or circuitry controlling the gas valve? He's back tomorrow to check the gas valve as he did not have his tester with him.

  • cec_57 Feb 10, 2010

    It looks like it was the gas valve that was the problem.

  • cec_57 Feb 10, 2010

    Looks like the problem was the gas valve

  • cec_57 Feb 10, 2010

    Stop the presses!! Just heard from the serviceman that the gas valve did not solve the problem but created another one that did not exist before. The HIS only lights the first burner. The balance of the burners don't light causing the system to lock-out. This was not a problem prior to the gas valve being replaced. In addition the circuit board was also replaced yesterday as this was thought to be a possible problem. I'm told now that the entire burner rack may needs replacing. This is not an easily obtainable part. It almost appears that York has built a bug into their system whereas replacing one part causes another part (which ran perfectly before) to fail.



    To date i've had the HSI replaced three times (again today), the circuit board, the gas valve and possibly the burner rack. Ever hear of anything like this before?

  • cec_57 Feb 11, 2010

    I have a service contract so all this labour and parts are on their tab. They have probably expended close to $3000.00 to date and want to put this matter to bed. The burner rack is the last part that can be replaced but I am afraid that yet something else won't work onnce this goes in. The track record on this furnace to date is not good. I'm going to be talking about getting a deal on a new furnace today with the furnacve company.

  • cec_57 Feb 11, 2010

    We are way beyond this. The pressure switch is okay. The circuit board and gas valve have been replaced. The burner rack which was previously okay is now going to be replaced. When the new gas valve went in only one burner would light. The flame would not jump to light the other burners. I'm told that the burner rack which is the only part left to be replaced should solve all my problems. Fortunately I'm on a service contract and all parts and labour to date have been covered. I've been severely inconvenienced, have been staying in a cold house and the service company out well over $3000.00 and counting.

Make sure the vent pipes that exhaust the fumes are not blocked in any way and also check the drain line to be sure it is not kinked from the vent motor to the trap. Take the hoses off the vent motor and the pressure switch and make sure all the hoses are clean and free from debris also check the trap on the drain hose and make sure it has water in it if it doesn't this will creat a negative pressure in the vent motor housing not allowing the vent pressure switch to make.

Hi, your description of whats happening is very helpful. We know your pressure switch is closing because without it the HSI wouldn't energize, so forget about the draft pressure switch. The problem is either the gas control valve or the control circuit board. To determine which, a volt meter is needed. After the HSI glows, you should have 24-27 volts ac going to your gas control valve. If you have the voltage but no gas, the valve is bad. If no voltage, the control board is defective. Best of luck.

    Until I posted an answer to your original problem, I didn't see your other comments. The issue you mentioned about the flame not jumping to all burners could be caused by your tech not setting the manifold pressure to the rated pressure after changing the valve. Too low pressure could cause that. I hope your not paying for all the different parts being changed on your furnace. Troubleshooting by throwing new parts on is a very expensive way to go about things. I can't imagine any technician coming to a job without a volt meter or a manometer to check pressures. Did they bring any tools at all or just a receipt book?


  • Dennis Koenig Feb 13, 2010

    Hi again, its hard sometimes to tell if you are responding to my solution or someone else's. If you were responding to me in your last comment,  when I mentioned that the manifold pressure needed to to be set to the rated pressure in order for you to have correct ignition to all burners it had nothing to do with your "pressure switch". Manifold pressure is the output pressure to the burners and is adjusted at the appliance regulator which is built into the gas valve. I would be surprised if your burner tray suddenly became defective during all these part changes, of course if the technician dropped the unit and damaged it, that would be an exception. Sorry to hear you are having a bad customer service experience and as I said in my first answer, your problem was originally a defective board or valve and a troubleshooter should have only replaced the "one" bad part and been done in a single service call.

Known causes for that model furnace shows bad circuit boards due to overheating caused by bad contacts in door switch and or switch not positioned right. repair procedure is to replace circuit board with new switch adjusted and installed correctly.

  • jwtbagger Feb 09, 2010

    yes both can have the same affect but more than likely its the board.

Have you tried checking the flame sensor? The flame sensor senses heat from the HSI which then tells the controller to actuate the solenoid which controls the flow of gas. Try removing the flame sensor and cleaning with an emery cloth. Verify the electrical connections after reinstalling. If you still have problems I would say that the flame sensor is more than likely the culprit. Good luck!

I think it is the flame sensor because if your flame sensor worked and allowed the flow of gas to occur and you still didn't have ignition the furnace would go into lockout and require a power cycle at the breaker panel.

    was i wrong about the flame sensor then?

  • David S. Feb 10, 2010

    That is great news that you found your problem. It will be nice having heat on a consistent basis now. Good luck with everything and thanks for the consideration. Take it easy and remember if you ever need anything else please come back to FixYa.

  • David S. Feb 10, 2010

    A few things to check. First off maybe you should verify your system pressure. Your gas company or HVAC tech should be able to do that. If all is well there then possibly the manifold could be plugged. Since the unit is older there could be an obstruction in the manifold. Spiders love to crawl in and make nests. Another thing to check would be the burner orifice or lightning bar if equipped. Have the HVAC guy do this though, not doubting your abilities here but it is better to have a licensed tech handle these things in case of a catastrophe.Let me know what you find. This is interesting. Good luck.

Heat....Furnace will not start up worked fine last year it is getting power... I can hear I light hum in the furnace but it will not start it process


If its a high or mid efficiency furnace most of the time the sequence of operation goes as follows: tstat calls for heat (R&W at tstat ) ventor motor starts, pressure switch closes, spark or hsi lights pilot or main burners. main blower motor comes on. From your description of a humming noise it sounds like maybe the ventor motor is seized.

My York Stellar PLUS furnace (Model P2UDD12N07601C) will not stay on; The ventilator fan runs, the main blower runs, the igniter comes on for approximately ten (10) seconds and you can hear the gas valve...


Check gas pressure, inspect manifold & make sure there is not a blockage.Make sure gas is present and main gas shut off valve to furnace is on also check the knob on the 24 volt gas valve and see if it is in the on position , check the MV terminal on the gas valve to 24 volt common with a volt tester to see if you have 24 volts present, if you do have 24 volts at gas valve, replace valve. if you do not have 24 volts at gas valve check high limit control & roll out limits for a open circuit, Good luck.

Condensation from small blower shorts out circuit board.


Put a plastic bag over the control board that will allow it to breath. you can add sealant to joint but you should clean the old off first. Then use some cork tape after sealant dries. You may also use pvc glue but it will never come out after that, but can be cut w/ saw if that becomes nessary.
