Hello. There is a temperature sensor built into the control board, and the temp in that area, is getting too hot. On the back of the unit, right top, there is a cooling fan that comes on at a certain temperature, if the intake is clogged, you will get this error, clean the intake. Inside the unit may be so dirty, it may require cleaning as well. The fan itself could be bad, and does not run, then it will need replacement.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Turbochef Tornado EC cooling fan ALWAYS runs at full speed

What jim said is right. plus clean the front vent. take off bottom front panel and clean all the little round holes. also if its dirty inside everything runs hotter(which makes the EC get warm faster) and dirt gets on the little wire(it's about 4" long coming from the main 40 pin connector0 that monitors the EC temp(clean it). sometimes the fan starts to get weak and doesn't cool properly. also, unplug oven, take side panel off and clean it as well. there are vents on it that get clogged. while it's unplugged clean the inside. I use a paint brush and shop van. just be careful not to hit wires or knock wires off. this will all help a bit but that fan will still run a lot anyway.

What means code F6

I believe f6 ec temp is your code. That means the electrical compartment is getting to hot. Most common is the fan on the back of the oven is weak and not moving the air fast enough. Also the electrical compartment could be loaded with dust.

I have had an F8 error in the past. The wire connecting the top element had broken off. The reason why temperature is not getting up is becaise the top element is not working.

Tornado ngc oven has an F6 code. IR heats up to 1160 degrees but never says ready

unplug oven. Discharge Caps- if you don't know how to do this stop here and call a professional.

push the small red reset switch rear lower corner of oven. IR is a little higher than i like to see.

Test electrical compartment thermal-couple. located under top cover about 2 inches from the rear in center.

Test Electrical compartment cooling fan.

EC Thermocouple (P/N 700-1199)
Type K Thermocouple. Thermocouple measures the
temperature of the electrical compartment. If the
temperature within the electrical compartment is
above 158?F (70?C), the control displays F6: EC
TEMP. The control board checks the EC temperature
every 60 seconds.

My oven is showing F6 EC TEMP on the screen how do I fix it? Please let me know.

F6: EC (Electrical Compartment) Temperature High

Fault is displayed when the EC thermocouple

exceeds 158?F (70?C). It is monitored once per

The electrical compartment is overheating. Remove the panel on the right side and clean out all the dust. Check the fan at the back and see if its blowing alot of air. Sometimes this fan can get so clogged up with dirt, it slows down the air flow.

My turbo chef owen sense somtime 208vac and some time 240vac

Hello. If you take the right side panel off, unplug first please. at the back is a blower motor, two screws on the back vertical rail, and one at the front edge of where it is connected to blow, probably under the foil tape, this will remove the blower. On the back wall toward the bottom, under all the relays, is a voltage transformer that tells the controller which voltage you have, replace it, and problem will be corrected. If you are not comfortable with this, call Turbo Chef for a local servicer, and call them to repair.
As for the F6 EC error, you are having a temperature problem due to the control area overheating, there is a blower on the back, and vents on the front, and side, either these are clogged, the fan grid is clogged, and the interior has alot of dust coating the interior of the right side, please unplug, vacuum, and clean out the dust etc.., after reassembly, after about 30 minutes of operation, the blower on the back should be on, if not you need another.

Hope that helps, and thank you.
