How to replace York P2MPD1408001A Ignition Control Board

How to replace York P2MPD1408001A Ignition Control Board and is it worth doing (unit is 14 years old)?

My original Ignition Control Board G951ADB-1403 (14 YEARS old) locks up with one blink of the red LED and not cycles at all.

To unlock it I’m switching the unit off/on, turning the blower on/of and then randomly it would unlock and work fine up to the next lock.

My next door AC man cleaned the flame censor, charged me $70 and after repeating this thing again now he is vaguely telling about “replacing the Ignition Control Board with very reliable Honeywell” for “around $400”.

Looking at the repair cost in this price range maybe I should think about replacing the whole unit , as far as I understand, at the age of 14 years it is at the end of it’s natural life.

But I can buy a Honeywell board for around $200 from Internet and replace it myself (was an EE in previous life).

Can somebody point me to a manual/cookbook how to do it and what to order (do I need to order Control Board with harness or without).

Hi XZ:

Do you mind if we regroup first? Can you find the label on your furnace that decodes the blinks? Next, see if you can determine who made the ignition system for your furnace. Post the brand and the numbers and let's see what we have. OK?

Update- I found a York board at www.arnoldservice.com for $93.

BTW- did your friend measure the flame current?

Hi daddyjohn,

The label for one blink says: LOCKOUT - CHECK FURNACE.

The board is made by JOHNSON
Part No 031-10234-000
Model G951ADB-1403.

If you decide to replace, there is no need to switch manufacturers. The new board made for York will be better than the original anyway because as time goes on, they make small revisions to fix problems that plagued the earlier boards. If I were you, I would order the exact replacement and everything will line up perfectly. It shouldn't cost $400 either.

control board

I have an older York about 14 or 15yrs old. I just bought a Honeywell universal S9200U1000 w/ all the instructions, wire harnesses and plugs included, it took me about 2hrs to install, and did not have to change the jumper setting. Now my furnace never worked so well. You may want to check site;
Furnace Control Boards ,
I paid a total of 124.00 2 day S/H included.
