    Default The seller says .......

    "The furnace was just completely rebuilt on the inside... cost me $600".

    BTW, found this on NACHI:

    Fraser, Johnston and Luxaire were purchased by York in 1980.

    York recently changed their serial nomenclature, so the old date sheets will not work in decoding anything manufactured after 2005.

    YORK (Borg-Warner) (Unitary) Third letter in Serial Number

    A 1971 B 1972 C – D – E – F –(G 1977) H – J – K – L – M – N – (P 1984)
    R 1985 S 1986 T – V – W – X – (Y 1991)
    A 1992 B 1993 C – D – E – F – G – H – J – K – L – M – N – (P 2005)

    Since 2005 models have a letter-number-letter-number configuration. (SN: W0E5195159)

    W=city of manufacture 0=third digit of year E=month 5=fourth digit of year
    (Wichita) 200-? May 2005

    SN is ENF413814, so the above is correct "F" would be 1976 or 1997 - did they even make condensing furnaces in '76?

    Michael. I don't understand your post? did you get into a tiff with the owner over this furnace? and had to fix it?

    Best

    I run into this every once in awhile.... a penny pinching seller actually finds an old crusty hvac contractor to replace the heat exchanger in the furance or the compressor inside of an A/C unit.

    I don't know about you but I'd feel perfectly safe driving down the road in a 1980 truck with a new engine. Air bags, anti-lock brakes, crash tests? Who needs that stuff, anyway?

    I hope that seller spent some of the money he saved on a CO detector and a service plan for when something else on that furnace breaks.

    Two words... false economy
