Hello. Do this when cool of course, in the back of the cook cavity, near the bottom is a plate, remove the screws holding it on, and work out of place, the converter is up inside of that area, and may be a couple additional screws to remove in that same area, that hold it in there. I just sits up in there and needs to be slowly worked out, once out, rinse off, do not use cleaners, etc,, or you will remove the catalyst, and then you need a new one, reverse assembly.

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.

Smoke comes out of unit

If it's coming from inside the oven ,clean underneath the cooking stone, if it's coming from the side panel it's probably the mag transformer.

I have both a tornado and a C3. I am getting a F2

for the f2 low temp verify the high-limit thermostat is not tripped. inspect the mags, make sure they are not loose. Also try inspecting the ir element washer look for corrosion or signs of arching. Is your wave cover damaged or missing. Sorry to say this generally is a factory trained fix because its usually because of an rf leak

When I push the on button after the oven is in "Snooze" mode, the oven starts cooling down instead of heating up . Then when I push the on button again, the screen comes up and says oven ready.

Pushing the Back touch pad will give Snooze option, push it again and the Oven Off comes up. From there you can leave it off to cool down and clean, or push the bottom right pad to turn on,

Turbo chef oven F6 ec code

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.

Cleaning better than self-cleaning

What you have read is correct, the catalytic lining can be damaged by corrosive sprays. It should be safe to use 'Easy Off ' on glass though.

The standard Auto clean cycle is the best method of cleaning that i know of.
