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.

In edit mode my oven seems to warm up past the preset temps and trip the overheat relay, also in cool down mode when i open the door it shows the IR steadily going higher to 1000F and seems to stay in cool...


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 get an f8 error code. Oven not heating up


Reset the high limit thermostat switch on back side of oven. If that doesn't helped then either your IR element is out or cc heater is bad

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.

Turbo chef is not heating up, coming up on it reads, f8 low heat


the problem with f8 like you have said LOW HEAT
, IF the oven does not warm up in time , which is usually 8 min , it goes into f8 fault code
now please check the hi limit button , on the back of the oven , left hand side, bottom corner, if it reset and starts heating, please check bottom element and temp reading IR , IF it rises very quickly and the elemnt is glowing red , please switch off the unit at the power point , you have problem with the solid state relay, if the temp is slowly rising , then you might only have an issue with the hi limit reset button thermostat, FIRST JUST CHECK THE RESET BUTTON

F2 low temp


The most common probem is burned wires going to the heater on the top of the oven cavity. Typically you will see the coating on the wire close to the heater all cracked and bare. You can usually just cut the wire back an inch and pull some slack up and reconnect the wire and you will be good. In some cases the wire will be burned to much and the whole wire will need to be changed. Any oven repair shop will sell you these high temp wires. DO NOT use regular wires they MUST be high temp rated.

Here is some other things to check if the heater wires look good.

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.

Also try this

1. Verify the high-limit thermostat is not tripped.
o If high-limit is tripped, reset and allow the oven to warm up.
o If high-limit is not tripped, follow the instructions below.
High-limit thermostat is not tripped.
Place a small water load in a microwave/heat-resistant container
(approx. 275 ml) in the oven and place the oven in TEST MODE. Press
the MGTRON key to actuate the microwave. While holding down the
MGTRON key, watch the CC and IR temperatures. If either temperature
bounces substantially, there may be a noise (EMI) problem.
To correct this problem, examine the wire routing for each
thermocouple wire. If the wires are routed near any high voltage
components such as the magnetron or high voltage transformers, reroute
the wires. If this does not correct the problem, verify that both
magnetrons are securely mounted.

Good Luck

I have NGC tornado Turbochef, it is toasting too


the subway ovens are supposed to be around 1000 dont change any of the settings if you think you are having programming issues speak to your field rep and ask them to reprogram your oven. they have a smart card for doing this. it will give you all the latest buttons including hashbrowns and breakfast stuff.

most common problem with toasting to dark is that you are using the wrong buttons

try cooking the next sandwich on the 1meat hotwell setting and select the sandwich size. you will notice the sandwich cooks much lighter.

if you cook using the combo subs button this could be your problem. most of the time re-training is just needed
