Where is the transformer located on a turbochef tornado

There are 2 hv transformers. If you take the right side cover off, they are towards the top of the unit. I think you need to take the top cover off, as well, to replace them. If you google turbochef tornado, there are very detailed repair manuals available for free. They shouldn't be hard to replace yourself. You might need to replace the capacitor (s) too. If it won't stand up on its own without falling over then good chance that is shot too. Remember to take a picture before you take everything apart, so you know how it goes back together. Remember to unplug!!! :). These are pretty easy to work on yourself. A service call will cost you at least $500 to replace a fairly cheap part. I learned the hard way. Below is a pic of a transformer, capacitor and mag. They were all bad. Eventually a bad mag will ruin your transformer and capacitor. 8ac8c2ce-4199-46ea-9981-2a2ee5dc9570.jpg c10f5a3f-ab72-45d5-94a0-8faed3674ea8.jpg 1f8362be-530d-497c-83d4-1ba6d05c9557.jpg

Turbo chef tornado f3 smoke and bad smell

James 938 hit the nail on the head. These ovens are very good and tend to be maintenance free, however, when it does have a problem, it is an unusual one. Good luck and let us know how it does.

Worx trimmer works for 5 minutes then dies

The battery is dead, Worx contracted with a cheap battery manufacturer, you can buy replacements on ebay, but they will fail quickly too. I recommend getting a new trimmer unless you want to buy new batteries every year.
