Hi, the above Error Code is for Magnetron / Microwave part of the Toaster.It could be even a blown fuse that would cause this Error. So, you could Open the right Panel and check the Fuse.Usually on most occasions, it is 3rd from the Left.
Take care

    Hi, there are several ways, you can use meter to see if you get a reading from side to side or turn on the switch to on and take a test ligt and touch the top of the prongs if the light, lights up on both sides the fuse is good . if you pull the fuse out you can look throught it to see if the element is in tack if it looks broken it is bad.


    Take care

Display shows food done within 2-3 seconds. cycle is programmed for 15 seconds heating What is causing the problem


That typically means the microwave circuit is not powering on so the oven turns itself off. Most of the time when that happens you will get an error code flashing on the bottom of the screen. If F3 MAG CURR. Look at my previous answers on fixing that

F3 mag curr


F3 MAG CURR means you have a problem with the high voltage system in your oven, the microwave circuit.

The next part is extremely dangerous, if you have no background in electric STAY OUT. CALL A PRO you will be working with 5000 volts.

With that said you will need a clamp on ampmeter to measure the current to narrow down the problem.

Discharging can be done by unplugging the oven and then short across the red wire on each capacitor to the chassis with an insulated screwdriver.
1. Remove the top and right side covers.
2. Enter the test mode. (From the OVEN OFF mode, simultaneously press
BACK and ENTER keys, enter the code 9-4-2-8 and press ENTER).
3. Place amp meter on the brown "ct" wire for amp reading. Wire is coming from the primary side of the
HV transformers and looping through the black plastic current transformer on the main control board and back to the HV transformers.
4. Press and hold the MGTRON soft key on the keypad to energize the magnetrons.
5. Observe the amperage on the meter. Typical readings are:
NORTH AMERICA: 12-14 amps at 240VAC/13-16 amps at 208VAC.
If you are getting 12-16 amps then change the I/O board.

If you are only getting 7 or 8 amps then only one side of the of the HV system is not working correctly. You will need to figure out which side is bad by un-plugging the power wires going to one of the HV transformers. Then test again and if you get no amps you have found the bad side. Replace the HV transformer, cap and diode.

If you are not getting any amps then check the F3 fuse it will most likely be blown. Replace and start over"

Changed out multiple parts but still get F3 MAG CURR error. Any Idea how to fix


You Didn't say which parts you have replaced so i have nothing to go on.

But we will begin from the start. F3 MAG CURR means you have a problem with the high voltage system in your oven, the microwave circuit.

The next part is extremely dangerous, if you have no background in electric STAY OUT. CALL A PRO you will be working with 5000 volts.

With that said you will need a clamp on ampmeter to measure the current to narrow down the problem.


Discharging can be done by unplugging the oven and then short across the red wire on each capacitor to the chassis with an insulated screwdriver.

1. Remove the top and right side covers.

2. Enter the test mode. (From the OVEN OFF mode, simultaneously press

BACK and ENTER keys, enter the code 9-4-2-8 and press ENTER).

3. Place amp meter on the brown "ct" wire for amp reading. Wire is coming from the primary side of the

HV transformers and looping through the black plastic current transformer on the main control board and back to the HV transformers.

4. Press and hold the MGTRON soft key on the keypad to energize the magnetrons.

5. Observe the amperage on the meter. Typical readings are:

You will need to figure out which side is bad by un-plugging the power wires going to one of the HV transformers. Then test again and if you get no amps you have found the bad side. Replace the HV transformer, cap and diode.

If you are not getting any amps then check the F3 fuse it will most likely be blown. Replace and start over

Good Luck If you have anymore questions just ask.

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 Mag Curr. on Turbochef Tornado


Hello. Interesting coincidence, but that error code is for the magnetron/microwave part of the toaster. You will need to have it serviced by someone familiar with the unit, it could be easy and reasonable, if just a fuse blew, but not likely. If the fuse blew, it is 20amps, so something took it out. Call turbo chef, they will get you to the closest servicer, may be able to help you on the phone.

Hope that helps, and thank you.
