When f3 comes up change both megs not just one cause it will go shortly after. I have been working on these ovens for almost 15 years.

F3 mag current


well...seems that you have an early warning of a possible failure of a major component. Is this unit still under warranty, by chance?

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

F 3 mag error. had a bad magnetron and hv transformer. went head and changed both hv transformers,diodes,caps,magnetrons. worked for about 5 hours and its back to blowing f3 fuse. Any ideas


F3 errors can indicate a mag problem. Did you replace both mags? It can also be a door switch. If your fuses are good, you need to inspect the 2 magnetrons. If you have a burned tip on one the waveguide and waveguide cover it will need to be replaced.

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.

F3 errors can indicate a mag problem. Check your fuses first, it can also be a door switch. If your fuses are good, you need to inspect the 2 magnetrons. If you have a burned tip on one the waveguide and waveguide cover will need to be replaced. I usually replace the entire system at a cost to the customer of $1500.00
