    i have message "f3 mag". if it is the fuse then where is it?

    magnetron was replaced 7 months ago - so don't think it can be that.

    please advice.

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.

or 1800 90turbo
Hope that helps, and thank you.

A posibility is that you have microwave leakage. you will need to adjust your door.

I bought my turbochef NGCEW ex Subway. It heats up no problem and then shows the Subway menus but I can't seem to access the edit menu. Also, some of the keys don't beep when I press

This might help you out:

It's a service manual for the TurboChef NGC Tornado.

Pay particular attention to pages 15 through 19. It shows you how to edit menus and to reset everything.

Good luck!

Close door (p)

If door will not stay shut, then adjust the closers to the door. It should have a screw to bring it back in line. Doors get out of adjustment over a period of time.

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

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.
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.
