Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F6 error means that the electronic thermocouple compartment connected to the control board has detected a temperature above 140 degree F (60 degree C). The unit will require cleaning, there is a fan located on the right top back of the unit whose intake might be blocked and/or the fan itself might be bad, you’ll need to clean that and see if that resolves the issue if not then the fan should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Hi, 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

Take care

SOURCE: turbo chef is not heating up, coming up on it

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

My turbo chef owen sense somtime 208vac and some time 240vac


Hello. If you take the right side panel off, unplug first please. at the back is a blower motor, two screws on the back vertical rail, and one at the front edge of where it is connected to blow, probably under the foil tape, this will remove the blower. On the back wall toward the bottom, under all the relays, is a voltage transformer that tells the controller which voltage you have, replace it, and problem will be corrected. If you are not comfortable with this, call Turbo Chef for a local servicer, and call them to repair.
As for the F6 EC error, you are having a temperature problem due to the control area overheating, there is a blower on the back, and vents on the front, and side, either these are clogged, the fan grid is clogged, and the interior has alot of dust coating the interior of the right side, please unplug, vacuum, and clean out the dust etc.., after reassembly, after about 30 minutes of operation, the blower on the back should be on, if not you need another.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

My turbo chef oven


The wave guide cover is a simple fix the problem being that after it is replaced you should have a leak check performed I dont know if you have a source to rent a refractomemter to perform this test. Most honest service companies will have a ref meter to check for rad leakage.
