SOURCE: gettinng message ''F3 mag''

Hello. "F3" is definitely the mag circuit, but not necessarily the magnetrons. Since you heard something "blow", I would be more inclined to look at the capacitors, and the rectifiers/diodes. It is possible that either of your HV transformers, or the preheat transformers has blown also, however, they would have smelled really bad and emitted a bit of smoke, which you did not mention, so I would go for the cap, diode first. Do you have access to a multimeter, and know how to use it? and just a word/warning. You are dealing with High Voltage components, that can/will kill you in an instant if not handled, or tested properly. If you had someone replace the Magnetron before, I would call them again, as they will most likely have what you need on the truck, or be able to get the correct part quickly. You could also call Turbo Chef, maybe they will sell you the parts you need, just remember there are 2 of each in there, so determine which one you need. There will probably be signs if it blew, of burnt plastic near the diode, which is under the cap. A capacitor will have a metal can, probably one will be out of shape near the top where the wires attach, you can look if you want, just unpug it please, and use a insulated screw driver to short the two termminals of the capacitor.

Hope all that helps, and thank you.

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.

SOURCE: "F3 MAG CURR" error message,

Its a big pain in the *** issue.
IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE CLAMP AMMETER THEN ONLY YOU CAN USE MY METHOD TO TROUBLESHOOT IT.
MAKE SURE OVEN HAS 5000V IN THE CAPACITOR.DISCHARGE THEM FIRST .
AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEN STOP HERE
STEPS
1. open right side pannel
2. press back key to turn off oven
3. press back and enter key simultaneously.
4. enter 9428 then press enter.You are directed to testmode.
5.put clamp ammeter on the primary wire(orange in color).The one which come from top and looping the IO board.
6.Under Displaty screen you see Word Magnetron.Press and hold the soft key to energize the magnetron.
7.Check the amperage.It should be under 14-16 Amps.
8.If its half of the value or nothing comes then.
9 half value means(one magnetron is working
10. No value means F3 fuse blown and check the cause why it blown(physically look at the transformers and the capacitors and the diodes that they didn't burnt or change their shape.
IF YES THEN REPLACE IT.

OKAY LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN REACH UPTO HERE .
AND REPLY ME
THNAKS
PLEASE RATE MY WORK

F3 Mag Low Current


did you check transformers. also k1 , k2, k3, relays. also make sure all wires are put back right and the diodes are going in the right direction.

What does f3 mag mean on the display?


F3: Magnetron Current Low

Fault is displayed when the current transformer

(CT) on the I/O control board does not detect

enough current. The fault is monitored when the

microwave is on during a cook cycle or self-test.

The fault is cleared from the display at the onset of

a cook cycle if the CT detects current or when the
magnetron is successfully energized in Test Mode

F3 and F5 errors when first trying to start oven or in the middle of cooking will also get them Mostly F3


F3 or F4 Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD) Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok. F5 Watchdog and hardware conflict Replace clock (ERC).

My maytag oven has a function error. F5 and F3


Hi sorianocynth,

Maytag error F5 and F3 do have different indications. Error F5 means watchdog and hardware conflict. The only way to resolve this is to replace clock (ERC). On the other hnd, F3 means you have shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD). Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. When they send out the part detailed instruction will be provided.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
