If your a commerical oven tech then just call 1-800-90turbo are you getting an error code i would probably check the convection circuit first starting with the blower motor and checking if the Windings are ok

Turbochef tornado toaster wont get to menu, just warming up


The most common issue with this is a bad IR element. When the oven is cold remove the metal rack. you will see the IR element on the bottom. turn the oven on. wait 1 min. open the door and see if the bottom element is warm at all. If the bottom element is still cold then you have a bad element.

Fault code Close door (S) keeps coming and oven won't start


The oven is telling you that the secondary switch is not working. Either the switch is broken or the door or switches are out of alignment. the switches cost about 4 dollars. Not an expensive repair by any means.

Bad SSR relay, te relay is shorted it keeps feeding the power to the it element . Or else bad IO board. You should know how to diagnose it though. Otherwise don't touch it

I am working on a Maytag Oven Model #MER5555QAW. You turn the oven to 350 deg. It goes immediately to 350 but then the temp goes off. It will not maintain the desired temp. Is this the sensor or the...


So are you saying that the oven does not start at all?The 350 just appears on the display and then pressing enter it disappears?Does it warm at all?If it warms,it is most likely the thermocouple or ASM,both are the same,just varies between makers.If it does not heat at all,it sounds like somehow the temperature setting got switched from F to C somehow,which can happen completely not done by you.Let me know which situation you have and I'll figure it out.Greg

My oven is on warming mode from last six hours. Please adivse


First, check the back of the oven. See if the lil red button can be pressed in. Then check the IR Element, usually you can see the wires burned or damaged where it enters the oven by the snap rings. This was a design flaw from the manufacturer of the element of which turbochef has taken care of.

COMPONENTS
IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control
board.

Its typically an easy quick fix.
