There are 2 mags in this oven yo have to figure out which mag is bad and replace it. This can be tricky and dangerous since there is a 4800 volt cap you will have to disconnect.

Display shows food done within 2-3 seconds. cycle is programmed for 15 seconds heating What is causing the problem


That typically means the microwave circuit is not powering on so the oven turns itself off. Most of the time when that happens you will get an error code flashing on the bottom of the screen. If F3 MAG CURR. Look at my previous answers on fixing that

I was using my oven to bake something ---when suddenly I heard a beep and saw the code F3 E2. I turned the oven off for a bit then turn it back on. the same thing happened. What does it mean. I have...


Sorry, it looks like your baking (in this oven, anyway) is over for tonight.

For Whirlpool ovens, F3 means that the main control circuit board is reading a temperature that is too high. The E2 code indicates that the temperature sensor has probably failed and needs to be replaced. It's a fairly easy fix for a service person, but you are probably not going to get the parts and/or technician before tomorrow.

Wish I had better news for you. Hopefully, it's under warranty!

Hi, F3 mag curr. what is means and how do I fix it?


Hi,
F3 is an complex code.

Easy fix is look at the transformers and the capacitors and the diodes.If it seems that any component has changed its appearence then fix it and replace the F3 fuse(3rd one from the front).

If the magnetron is bad ,then to check that you must know how to use clamp ammeter.
let me know if you know how to use clamp meter .
I will give you the solution .

NOTE oven has 5000V in it.
make sure you dischared the capacitors.
Thanks
please rate my work

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

F3 Mag Curr. on Turbochef Tornado


Hello. Interesting coincidence, but that error code is for the magnetron/microwave part of the toaster. You will need to have it serviced by someone familiar with the unit, it could be easy and reasonable, if just a fuse blew, but not likely. If the fuse blew, it is 20amps, so something took it out. Call turbo chef, they will get you to the closest servicer, may be able to help you on the phone.

Error code f 03 has come up on our oven


I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!
